Link Love: The Money, Crimes, Doing Time & Lies Edition

THE LIES

THE CRIMES

THE BANK

Okay, so these billionaires aren’t exactly thieves committing crimes, but they sure have a lot of money in the bank.

Plus, this is the way to really make money — come up with great inventions, inherit something, or just simply, save.

THE HEISTS

  • Ocean’s 11 — The best out of the trilogy with Ocean’s 12 and 13
  • Catch me if you can — I’m half cheering him on in the movie
  • Reservoir Dogs — Love.

THE DETECTIVES & CRIME-SOLVERS

  • Lie To Me — Good fictional drama about reading facial expressions & tics
  • Veronica Mars — Like a modern Nancy Drew who is not as well-adjusted
  • Castle — Nathan Fillion. Do I really need to say any more? VERY funny.
  • Monk — Neurotic OCD detective who is extremely observant & brilliant
  • Law and Order: Criminal Intent — Love Detective Bobby Goren!
  • Bones — I initially hated the character Bones, but now I think she’s awesome
  • Honourable Mention: Psych — More comedy than true detective drama
  • Honourable Mention: Dexter — It’s intense/good but makes my stomach turn
  • Honourable Mention: Criminal Minds — Too realistic for me (nightmares)

Can you tell I love the genre? ­čÖé

Sherlock Holmes made a very big impression on me as an 10-year old.

P.S. And if you can think of any other good detective-ish TV series, let me know in the comments; I’m always on the lookout for more.

The hungriest thief I know: The Hamburglar

But this guy in France could give him a run for his money!

“MANGER GRATUIT CHEZ MCDO”

(English: “Eat for free at McDonald’s“; they call it “McDo” as a nickname in France,┬ápronounced┬á“Mek-doh”)

“Ca se passe comme ├ža┬áchez McDo”

(English: “That’s how it happens at McDonald’s“, which was the original signature catch phrase of McDonald’s in France before the global “I’m lovin’ it“)
