Is anyone else watching this? We're up to 2.2 and loving it.

I've been really bad about posting and answering comments lately, but I can at least report that I've been busy on Pros things in a behind-the-scenes way. A while ago [ profile] enednoviel asked me if I knew when Pros first aired in Australia. I only had vague memories (some of which turned out to be wrong). Anyway I thought that maybe the National Library would have copies of TV Week for the period, so I wrote to them. They referred me to the NSW State Library and I eventually got around to getting a readers card and reserving a bunch of volumes of issues from 1979 onwards. It took me a couple of goes, and I still don't have a definitive date for the first episode shown because there were some issues missing, but my best informed guess at this time is that it was probably 'Old Dog, New Tricks' on 25 August 1981. ETA: based on comments I need to go back to the earlier missing issues - might take a while.

The list so far is underneath the cut. I might go back in a little while and look for repeats - I only went as far as 1983 and The Hatstand Express (1984) mentions that the show was back on air then. Also I should recontact the ANL now I know what I'm looking for & see if they have the missing issues.

Backtrack. I really do love this episode. It didn't start off as a favourite, but it's grown on me over repeat viewings. I can see I'm not alone, either *g*, there have been some great posts about this one.

One on its own to start with: [ profile] byslantedlight posted some beaut caps of the stoppage scene, including one from just after Doyle says "thanks". This cap goes directly before hers - in fact there are only a couple of frames showing Bodie looking at Doyle from that angle, before they get up and get on with it. 'Blink and you'll miss it' territory, but isn't that a lovely smile Bodie's giving Ray?

On to the Marge-fest )
You can see Bodie in the mirror in the first two pics!

Dear Marge. I’m glad she turns up in a lot of stories. Maybe we should make a list… Nice Boys by Lizzie, Telling Marge by Kate MacLean… others?

Some time ago I wrote about watching 'The Eagle: A Crime Odyssey', a Danish drama about a special investigative unit set up to combat international organised crime. I watched it on Australian SBS and enjoyed the show enough to do some internet searches, discovering in the process that there’s very little information available in English about the plots and characters. So, having finally discovered the screencapping software upstairs on the bloke’s computer, I've gone through the first episode(first of a two-parter) and created an introduction to the show.

The story starts just after news of the new unit has been announced to the public and before anyone joins the team. Warning, episode spoilers and lots of images below the cut. I’ve kept the size small, but if you have problems loading, let me know and I’ll split the posts.

It’s occurred to me that non-lj people might find this post if they search for English language information. For anyone in this situation, anonymous commenting is enabled - just leave me a name/sig if you comment without a livejournal ID.

Brett & I have just finished watching the 8 part series video and (no surprise) were thoroughly impressed by Martin Shaw's ability to grasp the essence of a character. Rhodes isn’t my idea of a hero, in fact I despise much of what he did in southern Africa, his double-dealing and high-handedness, yet the portrayal was exceptionally human.

As a side note, I was very drawn to the character Frank Johnson, the Pioneer commander played by SA actor, and now film-maker, Gavin Hood. He drew my eye in every scene he played where Rhodes was not in the picture. In fact it is this observance that leads to my further comment on the series:
