 Gloria, PK...Her Majesty's Service is broadcast on my PBS station on Saturday night at 8:00 (CDT) and rebroadcast on Sunday night at 10:00 p.m. (CDT).  There are four episodes in the series.  The second one was about Windsor Castle and was broadcast here last weekend.

Callie & Gloria - I haven't seen "Her Majesty's Service" yet, but plan to watch it after the Olympics are over.  It will be waiting for me, On Demand, along with the new season of the series, "Homeland". Other than those two, I'm not missing much regular programming. Its refreshing, every two years, to take a break from my usual TV shows and movies, and step into the world of the Olympic Games.  Iím enjoying it a lot this year, because I was getting bored with the HGTV shows that I watch, and have recently finished most of the continuing series that I follow.

Last night we watched Shaun White, win his Gold Medal in snowboard, after a twelve year break from competition.  Almost immediately, a woman came forward and accused him of sexual harassment in the past, so that may force him to give up his Gold Medal?  I didnít hear the details, so donít know how long ago this occurred, or how credible it sounded?

Then we watched the Women's Luge, and saw USA competitor, Emily Sweeney, suffer a horrendous crash in her final run. It looked bad, but apparently she was okay after a trip to the hospital.  We ended the evening by watching the Pairs Figure Skating short program.  Interesting to see the couple from North Korea. They were very good I thought, but ended in 11th position. The winners of the pairs short program were #1, China: #2, Russia: #3, Canada (not sure?)

#1 Germany; #2 China; #3 Canada.
Germany had the highest point count ever.

Tome- Too many men skaters last night!  I think they should have had an earlier elimination, and only shown the skaters from the last group.  We wanted to see Nathan Chen, but got too restless and tired of waiting, an recorded the rest. (Can you tell that I'm an impatient person? ha ha)  Then we watched the Skeleton, and the women's downhill skiing.  Came back to skating later and saw Chen's disastrous performance. I felt so bad for him, coming in 17th, when he was predicted to get the Gold Medal. I think the media hypes the favorite athletes way too much. The same thing happened to Michaela Shriffrin of the USA.  They've been talking non-stop all week about how she was slated to win all the skiing events that she entered.  It didn't happen. :(

Almost finished with Olympic Figure Skating! Ice Dancing, my favorite skating event ended last night, with the Canadian couple winning the Gold.  France won silver, and the USA's brother and sister team, won Bronze.  It was a pleasure to watch all the couples who performed, and to me, they all looked like winners.  I favor the ice dancing over all other figure skating events, because it does not involve any ďjumpsĒ.  Today starts the Womenís Individual Skate, which is the most popular with viewers. 

I used to love watching the women, but now I almost dread it.  Reason being that both the individual men and womenís events has changed over the years, and have morphed into . . . which skater can do the best and highest jumps.  The doubles, triples and quads, is what itís all about now.  I donít like to see them jump, because about half or three quarters of the skaters fall at least once, and often fall many times. I find it an unpleasant viewing experience now.  I'm all tensed up, just waiting for the triple or quad, and the inevitable fall.

Not sure,  but we may opt out of the Women's individual, and watch the other events instead.  I do like the fast moving speed skating, and the short track.  The Luge, Skeleton and Bobsled are thrilling and fun.  Iím getting tired of all the downhill skiing, but I do like it - in small doses.  Curling is interesting to watch, but seems to be shown at odd hours here.  We have learned to record the events we like, especially if there are two playing at the same time.  Oh yes, my husband loves Hockey, so he has been watching lots of the games.  I will take a look, but donít have the patience for watching a complete game.  I hope that others here are also enjoying the Winter Olympics?

Marilyne, I agree with you about the skating.  The ice dancing is also my favorite.  I also get very tense with all the jumps in the figure skating.  I prefer the Peggy Fleming style.  I had forgotten that the 1961 skating team had gotten killed in an airplane crash.  Peggy Flemingís coach was killed in that crash.  The crash was in Belgium.  The team was on its way to Prague.  Peggy Fleming was just 12 when this happened.

Just curious if anyone has seen the movie ďI, TonyaĒ.

I used to be glued to TV during Olympics, but somehow I havenít kept up with the Olympics as much this time.  I canít seem to get on their schedule.

Good afternoon
Marilyn, I also like the ice dancing, and my husband would have been watching all the hockey. Last night I watch the rescued dog show, it was different, but I did enjoy it.

Jean, I had front row seats in the old Madison Sq. Gardens many years ago to see Sonia Henie (spel) ice skate.
