Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Speaking of the often messy, ego-driven, class-driven nexus of contemporary British politics and news media, as I was in my last blog post... I've heard lots of great things about this mini-series over the years but I've never seen it for myself.
The first episode of State of Play airs Wednesday at 10 p.m. Eastern, DirecTV Channel 264.

Bill Nighy, who stars in the mini-series as a newspaper editor, was EXCELLENT as an MI5 operative playing alongside his curious neighbor, longtime HBB favorite Rachel Weisz, in the David Hare-directed BBC thriller, "Page Eight," which ran on PBS' Masterpiece Contemporary early last month.


Lots of people I know all over the country say that was one of the best things they've seen all year on TV the past year, along with Downton Abbey, of course.

*You can also STILL watch Page Eight online for free at the PBS website until December 6th.
It's one hour and 44 minutes long -and remember to hit full screen -fullskärm.
