Are you watching it? What do you think about it? What is up with that skateboard in the closet, huh?
It's no Top of the Lake, of course, but I am enjoying the new BBC America mystery series Broadchurch. Like Top of the Lake, it takes place in a beautiful location and has a lush look to it. It's less off-the-wall than Top of the Lake (no commune of women living in shipping containers, alas), but to make up for that it has my Doctor Who boyfriend David Tennant and gorgeous seaside views. (Broadchurch isn't a real place -- those views are really in West Bay, Dorset).
I know I'm not the only one having a really hard time understanding the dialogue -- I don't know if it's the Welsh Dorset / West Country / Mummerset accents or the show's sound quality, or both -- the music is so loud, it sometimes drowns out the difficult-enough-to-understand dialogue. BBC America, please get on that -- maybe we need subtitles.
I'm rather alarmed to see that if you go to the Wikipedia entry you can read synopses of all the upcoming episodes. It is going to be hard not to look up whether or not that guy who claims he's getting messages from the dead is actually, in the story, doing so. If he is actually getting messages from the dead, I will throw up my hands. Or maybe I will just throw up.
