And now for something completely different, a pop culture interlude. Last Tango in Halifax – any watchers here?
I don’t think much of the latest season, season 3. Too much silly melodrama and way too little daily life, which is what it’s best at. I got bored. It’s funny that melodrama can be boring while daily life can be enthralling, but there it is, at least for me.
Still. It’s better than most things. Women front and center, and talking about lots of things besides a man. It passes the Bechdel test in the first few minutes, every time.
And then it’s Yorkshire.
And it’s Derek Jacobi, the best Hamlet ever in the history of everything.
And Nicola Walker, and Nina Sosanya.
