Default Lovecraft Country File #3

Yeah, I can sort of see why there's a bit of fizzle about this 5th episode

If we are halfway through, flip knows where this is going.

Now, for a change of pace, 70s schoolkids methinks

Oh!
Sticking this anecdote here as tis fitting.
I get dvds to sort every 3 days nowadays, and this little oddity was thrust into my claws today .... A M&S special 2 disc set of The Professionals!
8 selected episodes (some belters to boot, though no Klansman hahaha) and says they are the remastered ones. Tis sealed and all. An oddity.

I've recorded the first episode and have set my cable box to record the other two so I can watch them in one sitting and the ability to scan through the adverts. I have high expectations based on the trailer and because David Tennant, Jason Watkins, and Daniel Mays are all fantastic actors.
