TV suspense

I’ve already watched the series Rosemary and Thyme on PBS, but I’ll probably ask for the DVD set for either a birthday or Christmas present because the series is a mystery, and the theme is gardening, and Felicity Kendal is one of the stars.  I enjoyed Pam Ferris’s work in the series as well, but it’s Felicity’s performances I enjoyed for so many years on Good Neighbors (US title) /The Good Life (UK title).

  • Rosemary and Thyme: Death in the Garden, Mystery Scene
    Try Rosemary & Thyme. That’s former horticultural lecturer Rosemary Boxer and ex-cop Laura Thyme who solve murders and rein in wayward gardens on each episode of the British series, which ran for three seasons on PBS.

The moving, talking lion answering … thing … in Tim Guinee’s quirky private eye’s kitchen had me absolutely in stitches.  I’d say I want one, but I wouldn’t be able to get through a conversation for laughing so hard.

I really like the Guinee character, especially since I think Blake, the other ‘new’ PI, is nasty.  Scott Porter does a good job at being a bad guy — but I don’t think he can compete against Guinee’s character, especially with a plush toy lion whose head and mouth move making the lion appear to be talking in the caller’s voice.  That was inspired.
