Friday Forum: Law & Order: UK Hiatus Edition
No new Law & Order: UK on ITV this week, but there is some news to cover.

Series 4: Episode 4.1 might be airing next week. tona_91 posted at louk_mattdevlin that CityTV has a new episode scheduled for Thursday, November 4th. However, the CityTV site doesn't have any information up on the main schedule grid. And if you click on the link to the L&O:UK page you're taken to information on this weeks episode (a repeat). Adding to the confusion, the episode description that has been located is for episode 4.1, but the episode is called "ID", not "Denial", which is the title of episode 4.2. So, basically, we're asking the Canadian fans to let us know what's going on next week. :)

Ratings: TV By The Numbers FINALLY reported on BBC America's ratings for Law & Order: UK. The October 15th airing garnered 271,000 viewers. Now, you might be thinking, "That's it?!", but BBCA is in far fewer households than the broadcast networks and many cable networks. If you compare the ratings to other BBCA shows, the ratings are quite good! And much improved over the Sunday debut which only brought in 186,000 viewers.

Season 1 on DVD: Just a reminder that Season 1 is now widely available on DVD and can be found at Best Buy, Deepdiscount.com and Amazon.com. Go forth and purchase!

Administrative Stuff: In semi-exciting news, we're almost like a real website now! By that I mean, if you head to the top of your browser and type Jamiebambernews.com, you will be directed, well, here. :) zegeekgirl and I felt it would make the site a bit easier to find to the world at large and give us room to grow if needed. For those reading off their friends list or who have bookmarked the site, nothing has changed.

I also completed an overhaul of the tagging system. Who knew we'd have so many posts? I'm 95% satisfied with the tags at the moment, which are 100& better than they were before, and I think you'll find it much easier to find information, photos, discussions, etc. I do still need to go back and make sure all the posts are tagged, but I'll save that for another rainy day. ;)

And now the floor is open!

w00t! to the ratings, DVD, and URL bits. ;)

Aye?! to the CityTV part, but I think perhaps we had a suspicion that it was coming based on past experience. :P Please, residents of Upper Canadia... eyes, keep 'em peeled. We need YOU! *points finger*

And now, because it's still the FF, an appropos-of-nothing image-type item:



How YOU doin', detective?

Since there's no episode to analyze in ridiculous detail, I will ask a ridiculous detail question. What the heck is Matt's bracelet? Has this been answered already and I missed it?

I don't remember now who first drew my attention to it, but while I was typing out all the scene cards, I went ahead and wrist checked Mattie. And sure enough, the darned bracelet is there from Series 1, Epi 1. I could not find a single episode where he wasn't wearing it. There were a couple episodes where I never got a shot of bare wrist to check, but every time it should have been there, it was. I have not wrist checked Series 3, but I spotted it in the last two episodes for sure. So it's either something Jamie Bamber constantly wears, or it's a Matt character piece, that Mattie constantly wears.

It's some sort of metal tag, like might hold a word, on a leather cord that tightens. It's usually worn a couple inches up from the wrist, the right wrist. Most commonly spotted during late night paperwork scenes at copper central. It's driving me crazy. What is it?

Screen caps are not working for me right now *kicks laptop*, but the very best shot of 'the bracelet' that I found on my examination of series 1 came at 15:26 of episode 5, if someone else want to take a snapshot.

Pretty sure that's Jamie's own bracelet, actually:



So you'll probably have to ask him. ;)

Aha! Well.... It's probably something adorable and meaningful, and alas, not my business if it's personal. *puts obsession in bottle, adds to collection*

Pure speculation on my part, but it could be a gift from Kerry and/or the girls and since he is unable to wear his wedding ring (as he could during S3 and S4 of BSG), he wears the bracelet while filming. At least it's adorable fanwank. ;)

Whuh-huh?

In one of the photos - less stubble, but same clothes and wrist wear. ;)

Ah. I think it's the same event, just one flash is a little harsher than the other. ;)
