I've been watching A&E's The Glades regularly. Pretty entertaining stuff, and of course there was that caiman in the first episode. How could I resist? Also, I sort of know Matt Whitten, who's the supervising producer. I liked a couple of novels he wrote, and he and talked at a few conventions. He even tuckerized me in an L&O episode he wrote years ago. Last night's episode was written by Lee Goldberg and William Rabkin. I also know Lee, and I know he's a Harry Whittington fan. While I got a kick out of the entire episode, my favorite part was the fake name used by one of the suspects: Ashley Carter. Judy wondered why I laughed when I heard the name, so I had to explain about The Sword of the Golden Stud and other novels. I'm looking forward to the second episode that Goldberg and Rabkin wrote, coming later this season.
