Copenhagen. No snow. Rubbish.
Taggart was on the box over here too. An older one mind, with thingy McManus. Real acting and stuff.

Yippee I got meself a big new telly this week, in time for the World Cup and Wimbledon. It's 32", and makes my old telly look like a smartphone screen in comparison, although in the shop it looked tiny alongside the enormous screens covering the walls. Anyway, there's a match starting in a few minutes.

I've been catching up on NRK's Hjernevask lately on the internet, seeing as my TV is currently useless. (My Norwegian one died during the US Open Tennis, and my UK one displays pictures but no sound... just about use-able for sports events if you can find radio/internet commentary not too far out of sync...).
They're interesting programs on fascinating subjects, but the formula for each episode is the same: find a Norwegian researcher who supports the "environment" position, travel to USA/UK to talk to researchers who think there must be a substantial biological component, then go back to Norway and make fun of the silly little Norwegian researchers.
It's pretty cool to have interviews with the likes of Steven Pinker right enough, but couldn't they find more Norwegian researchers who supported "nature" (or indeed non-Norwegians who supported "nurture")?
Anyway, nature or nurture, it's the World cup next month, French Open in just a few weeks....conclusion: new TV purchase imminent.

Life on Mars finally arrived on NRK1. Very good it is too, even if it is 2 or 3 years old already. Nice 70s music (including snippets of two Purple tracks the other night, No One Came and Lazy), and bad clothes.
