I am not enjoying the latest skandi offering. Humph.

So glad i found this thread. Dirty Laure grin,love it. Am I the only one who loves the amoral and totally divine Ms Karlson? She,s great.
Shocked Sami caught it, but tbh I thought he was a bit of a chancer coming back and expecting Laure to fall at his feet.
Yy Pierre, so lovely, so ridey, so would.

Montalbano I love him! I,ve missed loads,can I get him on amazon I wonder.

ROAR at Montalbano with hair and bare - yes please grin

I thought we had had all the eps of Montalbano, according to wiki, but according to IMBD there was a 9th series and we haven't seen those stories yet.

And yes, Montalbano bingo is VV dangerous <hic>

"cadaverous Roban" shock


EmilyAlice Sun 17-Mar-13 19:13:36

BTW was it really the lovely and tragic Stefan Lindman from Wallander as the first villain in Skyfall?

EmilyAlice Sun 17-Mar-13 18:45:19

Well when you are sixty something the bald and bandy legged Salvo or the cadaverous Juge Roban are what passes for hunky really....

Cremolafoam Sun 17-Mar-13 17:46:37


Moominsarehippos Sun 17-Mar-13 16:53:32

You are horrid! Still, better than hairy and very miserable/grumpy/argumentative as in the books.

Cremolafoam Sun 17-Mar-13 16:50:49

Lol re bandy legs. The new one( salvo junior ) looks a bit more hunky and dishy with devastating Sicilian looks. Salvo senior must have been the victim of some terrible work related trauma that caused his hair to fall out and his previously perfect legs to curve outwards. They've lots of lemons there so it can't be ricketts can itwinkgrin

Moominsarehippos Sun 17-Mar-13 16:46:44

Sigggghhhhh. Happy now. Not bandy. Lovely.

fussychica Sun 17-Mar-13 16:39:37

The article in the link said 4 new episodes Moomin
Emily lol at bandy - you are so right

Moominsarehippos Sun 17-Mar-13 16:31:33

Any more Montalbanos planned? I heard they weren't making any more, and I think they've all been shown. If it has been a UK series there'd have been a film by now.

They are all very touchy-feely in The Spiral, non? Obviously don't have the same sexual harassment laws over there!

EmilyAlice Sun 17-Mar-13 16:16:37

He doesn't look much like Old Montalbano does he? Will he be as bandy? Interesting casting challenge....

fussychica Sun 17-Mar-13 16:05:21

Laure wash - do me a favour that's why she's known as "dirty Laure" in this house - as well as for her multi man sex!
Ging (as we call the Kaarlson) - happy just doesn't seem right
Glad Tintin made it - he's my favourite - ok he's not as pretty as Phillipe but he's a bit more real.
Thanks for the link teej - look forward to it all - this week it's a Euro crime - German - so you know it won't be funnygrin
Love the Montalbano bingo - still got a couple of episodes to watcg - we'll have to try it - not sure the wine rack holds enough bottlesgrin

MrsSlocombesPussy Sun 17-Mar-13 15:23:47

Really enjoyed the last 2 episodes of Spiral.
My favourite bit was where Tintin saved Gilou's life at the hotel, and Gilou told him he'd snog him if there weren't people watching!
I love the way the members of the team look out for each other, and cover for each other when they cock up.

Cremolafoam Sun 17-Mar-13 15:06:14

* beard

Moominsarehippos Sun 17-Mar-13 12:52:20

Bear or bare?

Cremolafoam Sun 17-Mar-13 12:17:54

Ooh Montalbano With Hair and Bear
Can't wait!

Rowlers Sun 17-Mar-13 00:34:47

I'm with you, teejwood!
Youmakeme don't think Laure has changed clothes for 4 series.

teejwood Sun 17-Mar-13 00:29:52

Oh god Youmakeme you are sooo right. When she jumped out of Vincent's bed I thought, surely a quick shower and toothbrush?!

Rowlers it's a deal - we'll do a bingo for the next eurodrama grin

Speaking of which, I am sure Young Montalbano will find some fans on these threads wink

YouMakeMeWannaLaLa Sun 17-Mar-13 00:26:57

Or, if you want to stay sober; drink every time Laure or Gilou has a wash and a change of clothes.

Rowlers Sun 17-Mar-13 00:24:20

Montalbano bingo! Brilliant idea! There must be a bingo idea for all of them - glug when Kurt Wallander looks at nothing much on the beach, glug each time Gilou looks as if he's almost forgotten his lines ...

Rowlers Sun 17-Mar-13 00:21:12

Yes, why did they have him speaking English? DP and I both got the giggles whenever he came on.
I did think the way they portrayed the HLM was good - scary feeling on those housing estates. grim. Not sure how realistic though?
I'm always slightly uneasy about race ishoos on Spiral, too.
