@spywrite Agreed! @spywrite Up, up, up!This ancient Morse also has Catelyn Stark and a bit of racist banter!This old Morse has the first appearance of Laura Hobson, also the most recent Midsomer Murders detective as a country chap.What an amazing, maddening, terrifying story: https://t.co/3OaWOeVwS5

@JimHalterman I think I saw this p0rn! @dbarefoot "Time" in the sense that I can only watch at night--because I'm working in the day--and I prefer to just turn on the TV then. @dbarefoot Yeah--though if I had time for a VPN, I'd probably watch the BBC. @dbarefoot I wasn't able to get up to Canada this Olympiad--had to make do with NBC. (The agony!)When the living talk to the dead--amazing BBC show in which Derek Jarman (d. 1994) spoke with his brother-in-law: https://t.co/E8sV6BXQtv

That explicit statue of Trump is insulting to a lot of people who aren't Trump, points out @portmantina: https://t.co/1H12zi1LwE @oliverburkeman Best is "Crooked H," which would also be her professional wrestling name. @jessie_mai Yes!

@katelinnea The actor playing Rusty was 20 playing 15 or 16 when he was first cast. @G_Whitney_Leigh Coronation Street, Crown Court, Rumpole, Wood & Walters, The Wire, Being Erica, Franklin & Bash #7favTVshows @RonPyke I'm a couple of episodes behind (Olympics), but he's been heading that way for a while!

I'm starting to suspect that Ato Boldon gets a bonus every time he says "Sydney McLaughlin."Sanya Richards-Ross just spoke Jamaican patois (her term) on NBC. I predict kiss teeth by midnight. @readingwithtea I haven't. (You can create/send photocards with Postable, too.)Thanks to @gabrielarana for a) sending the card via @Postable; b) being cool with my telling the world about it! https://t.co/TpXGvcxLBdThis website mails out physical greeting cards for you. It's not as impersonal as it sounds: https://t.co/TpXGvcxLBd @alijhardy Quite!

Catching up on afternoon's Olympics coverage. Pretty sure commentator suggested cyclists basing themselves in Manchester is a "sacrifice."We'll likely have mixed-gender relays in swimming, cycling, and triathlon in future Olympic games: https://t.co/i3YIzJaIpb

@hyperbolise Not sure, sorry. I tape it on Syfy. @G_Whitney_Leigh Patties and coco bread at the reception! @whatallison @hyperbolise Killjoys is made by the same woman who created Lost Girl. Different vibe but still really interesting. @hyperbolise That sounds like a line from the BE opening theme song! @hyperbolise @whatallison There's nothing as good as BE! Totally different but ... Killjoys? (Syfy, also Canadian. Or Lost Girl?) @FayebellineW I'm chanting it as I read your tweet.First TV ad I've ever seen for Jamaican-style patties aired during Olympics 100-meter prelims. #KnowYourCustomers @FayebellineW I would expect rowing bros to be worse. All U.S. fencers I know offspring of a) Russian/EE immigrants or b) lesbians! @TVGMMattRoush Preach! @DundasKeele NO! I would've fainted over! (Started it for material to use against a Cook-loving friend and fell in love with it/her!)On @NY1arts' Book Reader segment, I gushed about Barbara Cook's new memoir Then & Now: https://t.co/0HC73Oom0v @Faffree Love her! (We had brunch together once!) @oliverburkeman Can I set an alert so I get your columns extra quickly when the conclusion is don't bother. (Not asking for a friend.) @Faffree Not during the Olympics! I often listen at other times. No US equivalent of 5Live. Sports are local here. No Olympics on radio. @Faffree @HannaRosin @NoreenMalone went out without those parts outside the UK Could use a VPN, but best to watch when your friends are. @Faffree @HannaRosin @NoreenMalone During the London Games, even non-sporty shows (e.g. on Radio 4) that went out with Olympics commentary @Faffree @HannaRosin @NoreenMalone Message, "Due to rights issues we're not able to bring you the sports commentary on this platform." @Faffree @HannaRosin @NoreenMalone Unfortunately, Radio 5 Live gets blocked in the US during Olympics (and occasionally at other times).

@adambarken Haven't seen tonight's episode yet, but I'm loving this season. Pree's beefed-up presence has been great. @HotTakes1 @Slate Hungary isn't Russia. @SailorSteveHolt I think it got quite a bit of coverage--and the Daily Beast did take down the piece late last night. @s_m_i Feedly. (Not madly in love, but it works.)You've all heard of this hot new sex thing, the manatee mating ball, right? Let @portmantina fill you in: https://t.co/0Oug51lXmQ @rosierobot If I didn't hate the phone (which I do, with a passion), I'd just tell you to call me up for a debrief.A charming taxonomy of gold-medal-winning hand guestures from @ShonAriehLerer: https://t.co/ZA7BQe2Meb @oliverburkeman This is a very English tweet for a Brooklyn resident. @G_Whitney_Leigh @NoreenMalone @willapaskin I was pretty much persuaded by this: https://t.co/SkDBU3Yi7OLove you, @simone_manuel https://t.co/t8riiRUGW9

Retweeted by June Thomas @rbmichae They lingered over Boudia's wife/child and Steele Johnson's clan. As I said in the piece, though, they're American. @TheBitchBot Perhaps. @Thomas_Courtney Yes, I mentioned that. Perhaps they'll mention in the individual competition.Now we know how to get NBC to ignore human interest stories at the Olympics: Have the humans be gay. https://t.co/MGBvrkLFK8 @DJFLevesley Bacon butties!

If there were a medal for smokey eye, Mustafina would mos def take home the gold. @SailorSteveHolt I understand, I do. But raised eyebrows are one thing. Shady tweets and irresponsible articles are another. @jamaicandale I mean "For we are YOUNG and free!" @jamaicandale I LOVE that anthem. "For we are strong and free!" @jamaicandale Ditto the swimming. (I rewatched the 400m IM on the feed to compare commentary.) @mdriegler Ye Shiwen: https://t.co/nYebNa9uih @jamaicandale No!

@thebenbergman Not live, but it's when everyone else in America is watching. (During week I'll probably watch before the telecast, though.) @FayebellineW I used to (or go to Canada). Stuck with NBC this year.Just realizing that the next two weeks will be full of ads. #OlympicSalesEventThe Olympics opening ceremony currently attempting the card stunt the DNC messed up last week. @GratuitousV Basically I'm on the podium right now.NBC showing @notmaryc playing soccer in Brazil. I took to the soccer field with her in slightly less exotic Chichester in 1979.Do I love the Olympics, or do I love @juliaturner's biennial dissections of Olympic ceremony gear?
