I have deliberately made this the not-quite-correct title of a new British television series which I thought I would like (in case I mistakenly describe the main characters) . We watched ten minutes of the first episode and decided NO. It is a detective thriller set in the North of the UK but the characters are so contrived to be politically correct - it is painful to watch. There is the requisite obese lady police constable, the rather ugly two main characters (sorry, but we are used to the beautiful when we watch American shows), the black boss detective in charge, the Indian forensics guy and - of course, the mixed marriage central couple - usually a white man with a black woman. I feel as if we are being systematically brain-washed into believing this is the way of the world. I still think that people are usually physically attracted to those who are the most like themselves. I make no apology if you think I am being racist: I happen to think nature knows best. I accept that in the end the world's population will all be a 'khaki colour" and maybe that is ultimately a good thing? Would it stop all wars if we all belonged to the same gene pool? Meanwhile, I am glad to have a wide choice of what to watch on TV. At the moment, we have opted for a series called "Versailles" about Louis XIV and the building of Versailles. After 11 episodes, I am finally tiring of the exquisite costumes and sets and the court gossip and intrigues and am suitably horrified at the life style of the nobles and the poverty of the masses (the only tax payers). An American show I am fascinated by is "Animal Kingdom" starring a shockingly plastic-surgery-altered Ellen Barkin. The family dynamics and plot are so far pretty intriguing. How wicked can a mother be? Luckily, my husband and I both enjoy this show - despite the obligatory homosexual son. What a world.
