Russian drama (not the running kind)

Asa is at a sleepover and Eliot fell asleep putting Ruby down, so I’m on my own tonight.  Just me, a dirty kitchen, and Amazon Prime Instant Video.

I’ve made my way through most of the BBC and PBS detective shows, so Amazon suggested this:

It sounded like good background to the work I was doing, and I hit play without thinking.  Then I switched screens to work on the next Trail Sisters article  (It’s going to be good.)  Then the Russian voices started.  Not Russian-accented voices.  Actual Russian voices.  I switched back to the show.  It turned out to be this awful, schlocky detective program à la “Silk Stalkings” or “NCIS” — in Russia — and Russian.  Definitely #1 on the “Three Things That Went Well Today” journal.

And then I came across “Documentary Now” with Bill Hader and Fred Armisen.”  #2 in the journal.

#3 will be the new Beta fish making it through the night.

An MdS training update tomorrow.

      I don’t know about that, Olga. We’ve never talked about whether you like slightly campy detective shows. If you do, then this is great.

    OMG I remember Silk Stalkings! I found it online recently, tried to rewatch – ouch… You might like Agent X on TNT – Sharon Stone as VP, Gerald McRaney as VP’s steward/former operative. Haven’t seen the main guy before, but there’s a female Russian spy who’s a heck of a fighter and fun to watch. Some scenery-chewing and a couple really bad eps, but a conspiracy and some fun. Watch in order.
