On the topic of shows that aired on BBC America:

Last night reminded me that Primeval was once one of the great joys of my life, and I had an absolute blast rediscovering everything I'd forgotten about Jess/Becker, a pairing that defied my usual tropes -- there are echoes of age-mismatched Sunny Young Thing + Grump, except Becker is not really a grump so much as a Super Serious Soldier uncomfortable with the fact that he is turning into a Smitten Kitten, and Jess is rather more breathless and unabashedly dazzled by his muscles than Sunny Young Things usually are.

I had less of a blast when I realized I'd formerly had the pleasure of forgetting that they never actually kissed despite having 13 episodes in which to do so. That is a tough blow to absorb a second time.

As a consolation prize: off to go marinate my brain the endless hurt/comfort rescue mission that is 5x04 for the twelfth time today.
