Apparently, I have a limited amount of focus for things involving words at a time. So I've been watching a lot of dubiously-acquired television.

As a result of this, I can tell you that Numb3rs is fairly shitty television, The Borgias is seriously kinky but bloody well shot (and Jeremy Irons remains mesmerising), Fairly Legal is moderately entertaining for something that really annoys me, Body of Proof contains a large and appealing amount of feminism for what amounts to a buddy-cop show about the Philadelphia ME's office, and Scott and Bailey may be the best British cop series yet. (Women! Older women! Some of whom are arseholes! Doing their jobs - and can I just say, I love the fact they suit up properly at crime scenes.)

And Marple is capable of really annoying me, when I want to like it a lot.

Someday, someone is going to make a period/fantasy drama as pretty and well-scripted as the pilot episode of The Borgias, and it will have women with swords as well as gowns, and some of them will be older women, and some of them will not be so pinkish white.

I may not be alive to see it, but one day it'll happen.
