The bill for nearly nine thousand yen that I mentioned in yesterday's post is apparently for my satellite television service, which is actually covered in my rent agreement. That is very pricey considering the lameness of the the television offerings. Most evenings I watch two hours of mysteries on the AXN Mystery Channel, classics like Jonathan Cheek, Miss Marple, Sherlock Holmes, Inspector Linley, and Wire in the Blood. Most of the series are in English with bothersome Japanese subtitles, but at least one series, Julie Lescaut, is in French with Japanese subtitles - and another, Wallander, is in some Scandinavian language with Japanese subtitles! It's kind of amusing to watch Julie Lescaut or Wallander and try to figure out what is going on! The language barrier makes those programs true mysteries!
Gotta run. Jonathan Cheek is beckoning!
