    At the end of Endeavour episode "Home", was SGT Strange taking Morses test for him?

    I think I need to rewatch that episode. I was listening more than looking and apparently missed some important stuff. Didn't pick up on this at all.

    I didn't see it on the pbs boardcast on Sunday, but I purchased the episode off of amazon the next day, there it was.

    I'm curious - why would you buy the episode when it can be watched for free on the pbs website?

    I can't stand watching via the computer. I'm cord cutter, I haven't had a dvr in a year. This is one of those particular shows I like to watch over and over. I most have seen the pilot half dozen times. To do that I have to purchase it on amazon.

    Another scene I didn't notice on the pbs boardcast, was Morse getting patched up be a doc at the end, he tells Morse he may limp later on in life.

    I didn't think about scenes being missing from the pbs broadcast. That's reason alone to buy it, especially if you watch them over and over.

    I'm only interested in 4 shows now, 3 come on at the same time Sundays, Endeavour, Copper, and Crossing lines. Endeavour I watched live, and purchased. Copper I have to purchase when its available Mondays because I don't have access to BBCA. Crossing Lines I watch on Hulu+. The fourth show is Longmire on Mondays.

    Four episode season. Not exactly unusual for this kind of thing, but hardly long enough for my taste. I really enjoyed it.

    Interesting that they showed the pilot episode over a year ago, and I filed it away with my Lewis episodes. I wondered why there weren't any more of Endeavour. Now that they have shown the four episodes, I had a really hard time tracking down where I had stashed (hidden) the pilot episode.

    I never did find what the heck I did with the Lewis pilot (lost!). I seriously doubt they will ever air that again. :(

    Actually, that 90 min length is one of the things I like about these shows. U.S. crime shows, minus commercials, are about 41 mins. So the Brit shows are more than twice as long. That allows for more complex mysteries and greater character development.

    I'm not saying I don't like it: it's worth it and I do watch various BBC shows; we watched Ripper this spring for example, and of course Sherlock Holmes when it was on. I'm just saying it's slow going for me to catch up with longer series. Some days I don't have 90 minutes for TV for the entire day, including news etc.

    If you can play region 2 DVDs PAL format, the entire series is available from Amazon UK for $44.24. That is really not too bad for series 1-12, 18 DVDs, nearly 60 hours of material. I have it and the quality is not bad. The exact same set (region 2, PAL) is $100 at AMAZON.COM. Weird.

    Hulu+ has all episodes, they list 8 seasons, but season 8 is made up seasons 8-12, which had a single episode in each.

    Just finished season 2. Better than the first, as good as the original Morse, imho. The last episode, especially, is just superb.

    I agree. It was very dark all series and I like that.

    A comment on the end of the final episode

    The being in jail thing was a bit silly since we know he gets out and I don't know how it could have gotten that far.

    Yeah, it was like they were trying to end the season with a cliffhanger, which felt really out of place for this series. And, as you say, was pretty weak since we know he'll be out of there soon enough.

    I have been only aware of eight episodes. I was really hoping that there might be more. Too bad...
