Death in Paradise 4.6

There was a big sporting event going on on St Marie with the volleyball championships taking place on the island with the islands teams reaching the final against a neighbouring island team who they have a massive rivalry with. But just before the final is due to take place one of the other teams members are found dead.

Dwayne had a lot of fun in this episode watching lots of footage of young women in bikini’s and then claiming that he was interested in the game and not the fact that they were young, lithe, pretty girls in bikins, much to the amusement of Florence who knew exactly why he was so interested in the sport and it certainly wasn’t anything to do with the game.

Humph tried to feign interest in the game as well but not as convincingly as Dwayne did, although probably for more laudable reasons than Dwayne though.

The mystery was ok in this episode but was probably a little bit more predictable than usual, but when there can’t be any other people who did it even if they do have cast iron alibis one of the people least likeley is bound to be the person responsible, especially in this series.

Your favorite blog post that you have written?

I haven’t got a particular favourite.

What do you feel is the most enjoyable way to spend $500? Why?

I would have to say that it would be a really nice trip out with my wife, just the two of us spending time together and just being.

If you could know the answer to any question, besides “What is the meaning of life?”, what would it be?

Why can’t we just all get along?

Where do you eat breakfast?

I don’t usually bother with breakfast as a rule.

Musketeers 2.5

Athos goes missing one day whilst on a drinking spell. At first the rest of the musketeers aren’t that bothered as he does this sort of thing all of the time but when they can’t find him in his usual haunts they begin to get a little bit worried.

Athos wakes up back on his lands and he has been kidnapped by the people who live on his families land to protect them from the overtures of another local landowner who decides that the land is for the taking if Athos doesn’t want it.

We got a bit of a flashback to Athos past with Milady just before and just after she was found with his brother dead with a knife in his chest. That was the only appearance by Milady in the episode and there was no appearance at all from Rochefort, Queen Anne or Louis and to be honest.

Athos’ tenants tried to make him feel bad about not giving a shit about them, but it didn’t really wash with him, as he really wasn’t that bothered about what happened to them. The other Musketeers however lived up to their “one for all and all for one” motto and all bandied together to help his tenants against the other landowner who just wanted them to to bow down and do whatever he wanted as he was one of the high born and they were just plebs who were no good for anything.

Athos soon started to feel a bit bad for his former tenants and came good at the end by giving them back their own land and telling them that it was up to them so there was a feel good feeling at the end of the story as the little people triumphed over the aristocracy with great aplomb.

It was quite nice to get away from all of the machinations of Rochefort for a little while.

Is the paper money in your possession right now organized sequentially according to denomination and with the bills right side up and facing the same way?

No it is stuffed in my wallet the way it came out of the atm machine that I got it out of, and in no particular order. I suppose it might be easier to count if it was ordered sequentially but that would be a great deal of effort that I am not willing to expel, as it really makes no different. It all goes in the end.

What is your favorite type of dog? (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie)

I like labradors. That is mostly because we used to have a labrador cross named Max and that is the best answer that I can give to that question.

If money was not an issue, would you go on a cruise? If so where would you go?

I would probably go to Australia and New Zealand if money was no object.

Would you dare to sleep in haunted house overnight?

No because I am a scaredy cat.
