Opening paragraphs........................


     None of it would have come to pass - not the desperate quest for the traitor, not the strained alliances nor the needless deaths - were it not for poor Heathcliff.  He was their tragic figure, their broken promise.  In the end, he would prove to be yet another feather in Gabriel's cap.  That said, Gabriel would have preferred that Heathcliff were still on his side of the ledger.  Assets like Heathcliff do not come along every day, sometimes only once in a career, rarely twice.  Such was the nature of espionage, Gabriel would lament.  Such was life itself.

Out-of-step, culturally..................


Here is a list of the 100 Best TV Episodes  since the year 2000.   Reasonable people can can disagree about many things, especially lists.   Out of the 100 TV shows listed, I have only watched four.  Of those four, I did happen to see these two "best episodes."  Maybe I should watch more TV.   Likely not.
