BBC 4 Tonight 9pm Something good to watch.

Ooh, I like this programme. Thanks for the heads up.

Marydoll Sat 02-Jul-22 18:52:23

I can't wait!
We have gone back and watched older ones to get back in the mood!

I love Inspector Montalbano. Marydoll it's isn't Korean πŸ˜‚

silverlining48 Sat 02-Jul-22 19:02:05

Final one I think.

So funny!!! I of course do not need subtitles for this! wink

Anyway Grandmabatty, I have moved on to Turkish dramas and am almost fluent in Turkish! I only watch them to develop my foreign language skills.
If you believe that, you will believe anything! πŸ˜‚

Oh- thanks mokryna for the heads up-I’m reading some of the books ( translated into English) at present.

Marydoll πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. I actually find Inspector Montalbano very attractive for a wee bald Sicilian with bandy legs.

So does my friend. I can't understand it, to be honest. πŸ˜‚

Me too Grandmabatty. I miss him.

* silverlining48*
Final one ?

mokryna Sat 02-Jul-22 21:02:28

Oh no!

silverlining48 Sat 02-Jul-22 21:31:02

Oh yes I am afraid so, that’s what I read.

Esspee Sat 02-Jul-22 22:55:00

Final series or final episode?

nadateturbe Sat 02-Jul-22 23:01:37

Final episode.

mokryna Sat 02-Jul-22 23:02:41

So disappointed after 20 years just dumped on a phone call. It didn’t portray the strong character I used to liked.

Deedaa Sat 02-Jul-22 23:02:58

There are two more books after this one but apparently there are no plans to film them.

Witzend Sat 02-Jul-22 23:08:06

Poor Livia! πŸ˜₯

Marydoll Sat 02-Jul-22 23:12:09

I think it may have been a different scriptwriter.
Salvo, certainly wasn't his usual self.

Deedaa Sat 02-Jul-22 23:33:41

Well now I'm going to have to read the final two books to find out if this is really the end for Salvo and Livia.

So disappointing! I never liked Livia - thought life for Montalbano would have been much more fun with Ingrid - but to dump her with a phone call for someone he'd hardly met who was almost young enough to be his granddaughter???? Ruined the whole thing for me.

FGS tidyskatemum why spoil it for everyone? Absolutely appalling manners.

Marydoll Sun 03-Jul-22 07:37:45

I was going to post a reminder at the beginning, No spoilers, please, since we planned to tape it.
However, I couldn't wait to watch it! πŸ˜„.

I have to say, I always had a soft spot for Ingrid, and her car even more so!

sandy2 Sun 03-Jul-22 08:02:37

I love Montalbano normally but what a stupid story line to finish on nd so out of character for Salvo

Floradora9 Sun 03-Jul-22 21:30:45

Do read the books they are so much better than the TV version.
