and some more…

Ok so I understand why I see phone boxes in older tv shows and films, but they are still a feature in many current plots such as The Blacklist (USA), The Code (Australia) and Being Human (USA). You’d be forgiven for thinking that the popularity of the mobile phone would mean that the phone box would disappear from many cultural products, but not so.

Not technically a classic as such but it will be with time… Fargo.

An old tv series…(update Oct 2014: I watched the first 3 episodes of Dark Skies via Amazon Prime subscription service. Then all of a sudden the series was no longer available - not for free and not to pay for. No idea why. I have since talked to another who has experienced the same thing with other shows. Screw you Amazon.)

Recent travels

We visited Australia recently, stopping at Dubai airport and getting out at Singapore for a few days on the return leg. The Dubai airport phones seem bright and shiny and new, Sydney provides you with a map of the city, Melbourne have a colour thing going on with pink and orange shelters and Singapore airport caters for the disabled:

And again with ‘Person of Interest’ (season 2, episode 22, 2014) - where even in today’s world of mobile phones the pay phone plays an integral part in the plot (and pay phones in Manhattan are guarded by g-men)…
