    Nero Wolfe

    I love the Wolfe novels and stories too. If I could be one fictional character, it would be Archie Goodwin, both for his wardrobe and his breezy attitude toward life.


    Wait, I thought that there were no Nero Wolfe books. I looked. I always thought they were from books, but couldn't find anything. Who wrote/writes them?

    You're pulling my leg, right?

    OK, maybe you're not. The Wolfe novels and stories were written by the great Rex Stout between 1934 and 1975. They are widely available and there is a vigorous fandom:

    Buy "The Doorbell Rang" -- It's the best IMHO, and easily available on eBay for cheap. And +1 for Foyle's War. ~ Huntsman

    Sorry, sorry. My mistake. I was thinking of Foyle's War actually (listed above for me which makes me look even dumber) which is not a book.


    Thanks for the link, though. And the recommendation, Huntsman.

    I am very much looking forward to the imminent DVD release of Mad Men. I've only seen clips, but I'm sure I'll love it.

    Another vote for Dexter. I just finished watching season 2 of Weeds and am looking forward to the next season.

    Currently watching (and enjoying) Psych, Jeeves & Wooster, and Tripping the Rift.

    No probs, and yes, you're right -- no books (I looked too). So sad they are only making so few. There are few shows with any honor these days. ~ H

    Speaking of that, we're still slowly working our way through West Wing. We just finished season two, where, without spoiling for anyone who hasn't seen it, the "Two Cathedrals" episode took place. That episode= pure amazingness.
