The Swiss & The BBC

One of my friends has been doing so tooling around overseas. Evidently Basel is the place to be right now. I'll have to go check it out. Anyone else have recommendations?

I'm finally getting my hands on Season 3 of that most remarkable show Spooks. The way the last season ended just really got to me. What an amazing show. In truth, I think those blokes across the pond really know what they are doing when it comes to writing dialog. They all speak so beautifully compared to the mostly disgusting slang we speak on this continent. Surely that factors into how great the writing is in these shows.

For more excellent writing, check out Hustle and Coupling, both of which are exceptional.
