The Killing

The television series, but not the cool Danish one, the American one. It’s been burning a hole in my sky + for some time, and now we finally finished watching it. It may seem little point doing a review now, but you may be like me and often catch up on series 1 when series 2 is due out; which is soon…

Well if that’s the case; don’t bother! I looked at Chris at the end of the last episode and he looked at me and just burst out laughing. It was a case of you had to laugh or you’d be angry about it for ages. I’m still angry!

It’s a standard detective drama with the death of a girl reported at the beginning of the first episode. Throughout the series you get to know her family, some teachers at her school, the detective herself and quite a lot about the local political parties vying for the next election. All of it was utterly boring. None of the characters were likeable; even the detective, who, every other episode nearly leaves to meet her fiance, but never does. It’s filmed in such a way that I think is meant to be gritty and cool, but ended up just being grey and dismal, and the characters mumble all the time so you have to have the volume up high to hear what they’re saying. I’ve never known a series to be drawn out as long as this one. And then…(Spoiler alert; but not really…) at the end…

You still don’t find out who f*****g did it! Hours and hours of my life invested into finding out who killed the girl. 13 episodes, all an hour long, and with double length episodes at the beginning and end! I will not be bothering with series 2.

Entertainment, TV,

Review of the Rose and Crown in Dunton Green
Review of the Rose and Crown restaurant in Dunton Green, Sevenoaks, Kent
February 9, 2018
There is a fundamental problem about going to visit my parents, and that is that the dog has to sleep in our bedroom. If he doesn’t he ends up scratching the door or waking everyone up whining, so instead I suffer with the noise he makes while he sleeps. Imagine something like a cross between an elephant and a sea-lion snoring whilst dreaming of mating, and you’ve almost got the level of noise our beloved Loki makes at night. (And day for that matter. Whenever he’s asleep basically.) So I admit, I was in somewhat of a tired daze the day we went to the Rose and Crown pub restaurant in Dunton Green to celebrate Dad’s birthday. However, I do remember the essentials well enough to write a little review….
living with hypothyroid disease
Living with hypothyroidism – blame, balance, and being kind to yourself
May 24, 2018
This week is Thyroid awareness week and the 25th of May is World Thyroid Day. It feels like every day of the week and every week of the year is National or International awareness day for something or other. Well, this is mine. I hope we don’t get too weary of these sorts of days and weeks that we become indifferent about them. Anyway, I wrote more about my Hypothyroid disease story on a post a few years ago if you’d like a read of that first; and please scroll down to watch the video I made about it as well…
