    “Police finally close in on Niko’s prostitution ring, but the butcher of La Villette is still evading custody. Will Berthaud manage to track him down?”

    tut tut, they missed a comma, are they not always supposed to be in pairs? Nonetheless, exciting, or what?!

    Thank you very much, merci beaucoup, for the Bday wishes!
    @Nounors yes, have some lovely prezzies including a Miss Kitty & a Fountain pen set & a Moleskin notebook, now i am a true Guardianite…
    @all
    i must have seen too many murder mysteries to notice that miss Kitty has no pants on..err
    nb.great name monsieur le blue snowman & picture tho it makes me think of Christmas already..
    re: this Noggin business, have looked at the website, cheers for that, @Honokuka, just don’t get it..maybe you have to watch it?
    @Nounours
    Yes, where is Moomintroll indeed? surely Nog is not a patch on Moomintroll..even animated.
    nb. you can get a book of the drawings, as i received for a prezzie last Christmas and funily enough, gave too. However no Finn Family Moomintroll book..

Spiral 3 Episods 9&10:Everybody has to be nice to me today since it’s my birthday:6th May 20111

everybody has to be nice to me today since it’s my birthday!..
nbs:
i have been reliably informed by a cowboy expert that i have been mis-writing Lee Van Clint, it should be Lee Van Cleef, he from The Good , The Bad & The Ugly. With the best cowboy theme music of all time by Morricone. Of course i could have pretended i was being doubly ironic (making a word play with dear dastardly Clint) and never mentioned my mistake..

‘nother nb. Forgot to mention in my portrayal of Roban as (Batman’s) Robin that he could so do tights, no sweat and still carry it off, hence is officially cool after all if not quite a cowboy..

@Nounours@Systemaddict@honukoka:
@Nounors, i have been to Barcelona…nice Fawlty towers joke there!

thank you all as above very much for the info, will check out Noggin being as i am in favour of any show where nobody gets murdered:SWNGM for short.

Sounds slightly reminiscent of my beloved Moomin family from a way back when..

    @Nounours:
    Mais oui, good call there, to bail out and vite..
    nb.” i must conserve my energy for Noggin”! hilarieuse..

    @Sunnyone:
    Hey thanks very much for that, makes sense & realise i have completely forgotten about the dog story, except that he was called Tarzan. No wonder then that the Mayor is so handy with cameras too?
    I think i remember now, they were in that seriously empty (blue) office and his wife was crying, then ‘fessed up to Roban.

    @Adrastos
    “the innocuous suddenly becomes the calamitous”

    Really like this description, seems to nail the essence of Spiral that i love, that in spite of everything it has this vein of farce& humour running through it. Especially physical comedy at which it exceeds i feel.
    @All
    Somebody right at the beginning here described the Police in Spiral as”Keystone Cops”. Yes, like in the 1st Car Chase scene!
    Yet this farce can have a much darker outcome too which is when it gets really interesting..

    nb.
    i’m always kind to spiders in fact rescue them from certain doom..
    who on earth is Noggins the Nog?

    Nounours:
    That is So cool, it’s Greek to me tho, i wonder what it means?? I lived in Greece for many years and have seen all or most of the ancient sites, when i am supposed to be doing important stuff and am terminally distracted by this computer i find myself musing that the internet is indeed the modern equivalent of the Oracle @ Delphi..

    There, that was suitably Guardian, wasn’t it? You are c’est vrai, at risk of being un Guardianly in such comments, indeed Frecklist, as somebody who holds that particular genetic mutation which even has a numbered code! je must en y va,

    soon i will be free to roam and i will be giving myself some light relief from the plethora of murders which i am finding infinitely and cumulatively quite depressing really and will be discussing the merits, plots and indeed exciting sub-plots of The Only Way Is Essex!

    brilliant avatar, eney polee oraya (phonetic Greek)
    actuallemente i had only seen JJLLP’s coment when i wrote that..mais you have a point i S’pose..
    mais oui, shame on me,(he he)

    i did actually stop myself from writing something that could be construed as sexist about our sociopath Josephine yesterday, keep getting these Guardian moments..

    in my defence i thought i kept it all quite clean in the spirit of (sexist)
    fun..i never mentioned underpants, Or Boxers even, or guns up certain places or the medical word that might be inherent in “getting to the bottom of this”! Keeping everybody metaphorically dressed..

    coming later, a descriptively hot scene, describing the sexual chemistry between a certain two characters in Spiral…

    appropos of nothing:(a tendentious spiral tale)
    i once went out on a date with a guy who (& this should have set alarm bells ringing) proudly announced that he had on his “shoes for Court” then proceeded to walk in a severely triangulated pattern scarily reminiscent of drunk tramps. He then angrily argued with the barmaid when she refused to take his brandished bit of old paper receipt from his pocket which he loudly declared was money!

    Moral of this story fellas, always remember your wallet..(well on a date) unfortunately the place we went to had open Spiral stairs, (there’s my link!) and after ‘my date’ had a nice rest he had decided upon by sitting down on the floor, i had to get help to push him back up the eponymous spiral staircase!…

  • Just a thought:
    If Mr. Delacourt, one of the Mayor’s cronies, was ‘in’ with the Mayor then why did he install a secret camera in the Mayor’s office. Also who is this Mr. Dejain they describe as having been beaten up?

    The monumental mission of Roban& his fall from Lee Van Clint alike & Cowboy status:
    Wouldn’t it be great if Roban brought the Mayor & his motley crew down, cleverly leaving Arnaud out of it And Martin, his brother? Oh dear, quite a quest! It’s starting to seem like he will have to metaphorically sacrifice one. Biblical or what? Who to choose: his ‘son’ (perhaps his real son) or his brother?

    I’m sure Roban will pull it off. Somebody here called him Robin Hood with Marianne as Maid Marian-hilarious! He could also, i propose, be Batman’s Robin, grinning and forever boyish with his sparkling smile and silvery bright hair. Roban has a whole foxy like a fox thing going on..

    He wasn’t so cool as a drunk however. Lee Van Clint, nay Clint Eastwoodness himself would be grimacing, deftly moving their well chewed toothpick to the far corners of their mouth, whilst wincing at such cowboylessness. Tsk, everybody knows that cool cowboys, adept at whooshing the murky shot glass expertly from one end of the bar & back can take their liquor.

    You don’t “forget your wallet” nor do you phone up your girlfriend to bail you out then collapse crying into her arms declaring “I’m too old for all this”! No, you stagger outside, spurs clanking quietly in the moonlight and pick a fight with somebody, swaying slightly and sneering manfully whilst talking out of the corners of your mouth..
    You do Not admit to being old!

    on screen chemistry:
    May i say that in that in the realms of history of on screen chemistry Bremont & Laure really deserve a written entry.

    Bremont &Laure sizzle with heat whenever they get a few inches away from each other. A smoking look from Laure from a few feet away, a declaration from her that she wants him, a burning look across the room.

    The slow dance from Bremont, who magicks himself to her side and somehow scoops her up in his arms, tilting her chin up in his hand. Like some smouldering and silent Master Flamenco dancer about to lead her, stomping, across the room..
