I saw 'The Detective Agency' when it first came out - it's now being repeated and I found it delightful Sunday night viewing.
I'll certainly look out for 'In Treatment'
The other day I watched an old film 'little Women' - one of my favourite books - and Gabrielle Byrne played Professor Baer(spelling?) I think we all have our own idea of what the Professor is like and no actor can really please everybody but he was pretty dam good.
I'm probably one of the few people who don't have HBO. I have the satellite dish with a million channels, but no HBO! In Treatment sounds like something I'd like, so I'll look for it. Thanks for the reviews, Naomi.
Any plumbing news?? ;)
I've always been a big Diane Wiest fan since I saw her in Woody Allen's Hannah and Her Sisters. Marvelous actress.
I don't have HBO but shall check these out, thank you.
Meeting Seemah tomorrow Naomi :D
ah, poor sweetie! Upset stomachs are no fun! Give him a special scratch behind the ears from me!
(And check to make sure no rat poison traces are within his domain)
Happy holidays to all your bloggie buddies. It's a wonderful gift of nature, a harbinger of peace, when Christian and Hebrew holidays converge this way.

Oh dear, pls forgive me, but's a fact I do live in another country, so commenting on TV-shows etc thats have not been released over here, will be false.
I only can say:
You are the best advisers for me what to watch when TV and Movies etc appears near me.
Have a Great Easter
Norway my dear
In Treatment sure does look interesting. I don't have HBO, though, sadly.
I just wanted to offer a bit of encouragement regarding all that's going on with you. Just hang in there, take hope from the fact that things always seem to come in waves and then, after a bit, it will all settle down again. Sure hope Sweetie gets better. xoxo
Naomi, you have certainly had a lot to deal with lately! I hope that all your problems will resolve soon. We have HBO, but I have not watched In Treatment. I have read several of the books in the #1 detective agency series, and they are really good.
Thanks for the great reviews. I'll have to check out these shows. Sorry about your on-going problems at your house and I hope Sweetie returns to normal very soon.
ohh i like Gabriel Byrne! He had a little show some time ago that I loved but it got canceled (naturally, i liked it!) it was called Picked Fences. Roy Dotrice played his father and the interaction between them was so great! I wish that show had stayed on for a while, ah well.
First of all I hope that Sweetie is well and in good shape! Give a kiss to him!
I would love to see "In Treatment" show, but I haven't HBO... But I will rent a DVD with all those chapters. Looks great!
i dont have hbo either i use 2 i have showtime for big brother afterdark looks like i might need to get hbo now. hey also u were right on your guess come check out my post today got some awesome pics up!!!!
What a shame about Sweetie! Our doggie is sick too. He's been diagnosed with Cushing's Disease and we do not yet know what the treatment will be for him.
I hope the rat situation is getting better.
I also do not have HBO, but do rent the shows on DVD. Will check these out.
OMG - I am glad that I clicked over here. I keep flipping to HBO wondering when In Treatment would be back!!!! I am almost as excited as if my favorite serial killer - Dexter where back for another season of cutting and dicing!!!!
We have HBO Canada and "In Treatment" seems to be on a lot ... surprisingly I've never watched it.
I read The Detective Agency but found it boring so didn't bother with the movie. Maybe I'll check it out ...
I'll keep my eyes peeled for those shows.
I'm sorry you're having so many issues! Sheesh, when it rains it pours, huh?
Great minds think alike. I've been watching N1LDA since the beginning and just discovered "In Treatment." These are two really great shows.
No HBO here, either. Actually no cable either. We watch so little TV it doesn't make sense for us to pay more that the $7.97 we pay for the basics + a little more.
And good luck with the plumbing. And you Sweetie, too.
Sweetie's nerves are probably worn thin too with your plumbing issues and rats. You guys are in too much stress. I love HBO. So many of my favorite shows come from there.
Hope things get better soon and I'll definitely try to remember to watch those shows..they sound intriguing.

A Very Happy Easter to you, dear Naomi!
I've never seen either of those shows. In Treatment sounds particularly interesting to me. I will have to rent it. I've always loved Gabriel Byrnes and Dianne Wiezt, so I think I'd really like this show.
I'm so sad to hear that Sweetie is having health problems. Let us know how he's doing if you can in your next post.
Take a deep breath and hang in there.
Life gets just too hectic some times!!!
Because of your review and another I read, my husband and I gave this series a chance last night. I don't think I'd have watched it otherwise because I don't watch any series; but you were right. It's delightful and we laughed a lot at last night's episode. Long may it run and I will be sure and keep it on my try to see list.
Watched for the first time last night, adn will definitely be tuning in again. Not sure how I missed this one, but I need to catch up and watch all the episodes I've missed.
I don't have HBO, like Scarlet said, I too have a satellite dish...but no HBO.
I have been reading "The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency" books, and they are a delight. So different from the detective stories we are used to. Maybe, the show will be released on DVD and we will all be able to enjoy them someday.
We don't get HBO here, so will have to wait until it comes out in DVD...
Gabriel Byrne is one of the sexiest men EVER....I have loved everything he's done too...an amazing actor. And I love Dianne Weist as well. Great cast.
And the Detective Agency series? I have read many of the books and loved them all. I think that character is one of my all time favourite characters in a novel. I would love to see this series.
thanks for letting us know about them.
and......bon chance with all those yucky things you are dealing with. my heart goes out to you x
