Everything's on the beach

LOST returned last night after its 13 week winter hiatus. Another roughly hour-shaped chunk out of my spare time each week.

The city of Miami featured (mysteriousy) as it does of course in CSI:Miami, the show I became hooked on whilst flying across the Atlantic. If there's a more involvingly ludicrous character on TV than Lieutenant Horatio Cain I've yet to find him. Caruso's performance wouldn't be worth spoofing because he seems to be already playing it as a piss-take...rather like some of the great TV detectives of the 1970s.

Looks like I will never be crossing the pond on BA again. I'd rather pay Continental $5 for a miniature bottle of Merlot than BA 240 quid for my second bag. (I don't think I have ever made the journey carrying less than 30 kgs.)

Caruso has to be taking the piss...his inflections are so completely off the wall he almost comes across as stoned.

Ever watch the old NYPD Blue? a guilty pleasure...and Caruso was completely different then.
