has misplaced the first season of Banacek. Bad that person!

So that means I will watch “Fly Me, If You Can Find Me.”

The one with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks?
Or the one with Marilyn Chambers and Georgina Spelvin?

Might as well say that I know about that Banacek episode about the disappearing airplane with Victoria Principal.

It was wonderful, even though I either figured it out, or remembered it from when I was 8-10 years old.

Hard to filter out the fact that I’ve seen them in the distant past, but I do believe that television is a much harder gig for the mystery writer: there are fewer places to hide real clues, and there’s less opportunity for manufacturing red herrings.

And then I watched the one about the magic act. I was in the middle of the pilot, which is fascinating, when my sleeping pill hit and I couldn’t make it make sense any more and I had to stop because my think wouldn’t thunk. Or, rather, all my think could do was thunk.
