Without knowing anything about the book I've being enjoying the TV series. We're up to the 11th episode in the UK, which is on tonight. I certainly wouldn't describe it as one of my favourites, but it's been decent enough. Not a patch on my current highlights; The Newsroom and House Of Cards.

The main problem with a lot of TV writing these days is that they come up with brilliantly thought provoking, mysterious plots that have absolutely no ending. They're just set up and tease after set up and tease to hook viewers, and it's obvious there's absolutely no end game at all. It's all about the cliffhangers and the promise of something they haven't thought through. So when they do end it - like Lost - it's a fucking monolithic sized disappointment.

I'm really enjoying the Blacklist, mainly to see James Spader hamming it up in glorious fashion. But I get the feeling this may be another one with no answers and loads of questions. I mean, if the girl is his daughter it's so heavily sign posted even Stevie Wonder could spot it. And if that's just misdirection, it's subtle as a sledgehammer. So I'll enjoy it for what it is and hope they have a good answer to those puzzles.

Stanley Kubrick was hired to fake the moon landing, but due to his perfectionism he made them film it on location. On the moon.
