Alas, it is the last week of L&O:UK until September. Sigh. I shall miss my weekly dose of Jamie Being Pretty. So, here's one more picspam, plus some spoilery comments about it.
A warning: if sexual assault is a trigger issue for you, please just skip this episode.
Okay, huh? The opening teaser already hit my "ugh, I don't want to be reminded of that" buttons when she sat down on the table, but one thing really bothered me. Is it common practice in the UK for a male gynecologist to examine female patients alone? Over here, nearly every male doctor (and many female ones) will bring along a female nurse to observe, in order to prevent any problems. Or maybe the issue here is just that the original US script was written years ago, before that was customary.
ETA: I typed that before the second visit, when the nurse came in and offered to stay. And that's when the episode got even creepier. UGH. If Jamie weren't around, this episode was NOT something I would want to continue to watch.
On a sillier note: the characters walk-and-eat quite often on this show. It also has Jamie with really good hair, and being concerned while holding a cuppa, and wearing a wool coat. God, I am such a sucker for guys in coats. And Asta? I like the plaid shirts. So there. ;)
P.S. Do y'all have recommendations of other video players besides VLC? I know many people swear by it, but I don't like the interface at all -- very hard to skip back and forth to get the exact frame I want when screencapping. Ctrl-T is such a pain in the ass. I used BSPlayer with my old laptop and LOVED it, but I don't feel like downloading a cracked warez version.
