  1. Three things:

    * I love Janelle, and I am still *so* delighted she’s such a good actor. Ok, she’s been acting for a fair while now, but honestly, she’s like David Bowie in terms of her range of talents (but better, in a lot of ways).

    * And she has a lovely speaking voice.

    * That show has some great photography in it. Maybe I should check out the first season as well.
