comment Who is the narrator in the movie Book Thief?
I haven't seen the movie but in the book, the narrator is explicitly "Death."

comment X Files known by other name?
Just as a note, the Hebrew word translated here as "Dark" points to more than dark (which, literally would just be "khoshekh") -- it is more "darkness, pitch blackness ; despair, despondency ; dark (noun), unknown"

comment Is Suburgatory's characterisation of the NY suburbs remotely correct?
I don't know the show but NYC suburbs are very varied, covering everything from swanky areas of Westwood NJ, the Five Towns of LI and Scarsdale, but also the lesser economic suburbs like Fort Lee, Yonkers and such. Each area has a good side and a bad side.

comment Why does McCall time himself with the stopwatch in a lot of scenes?
I would guess that he wants to see if he still "has it". He is highly regimented -- the way he moves his fork and knife and lays the book on the table. He is precisely scheduled. He has an acute sense of time (which is why he can tell Ralphie "40 seconds exactly").

comment How was Ben stung?
But the responses was "during the day?" which might indicate that grievers walk through the Glade at night but not the day. They didn't respond "but he wasn't in the maze."

comment Are there any crime investigation shows where the protagonists don’t always correctly solve the case, or even sometimes capture\imprison a wrong guy?
I recall one episode of Law and Order in which the wrong person was convicted and the only person who could exonerate him died, so he had to stay in jail even though every cop knew he was innocent, and an SVU episode where Stabler gets the wrong guy convicted so the guy throws him off a roof.
