I'm working on my PhD in aerospace engineering, specializing in computational turbulent combustion. My focus is primarily on massively parallel algorithms and computational methods for solving fluid and structural mechanics problems. Primary work is done in Fortran (90, 95, and 2003) but recent work has me branching into python, C and C++.

I'm also interested in international affairs and law.

Also interested in applying computational techniques to sports, in particular cycling aerodynamics and performance optimization. Particular emphasis on track cycling and time trialing.

I am eager to see if anybody has any knowledge of the genre in Slavic countries... I would expect more differences with "Western" notions of law and crime there.

This is exactly the kind of analysis I was looking for! This genre is really interesting because it can provide some insight into current (at the time) events and the fears of the population or propaganda from the government. The Harry Morgan years of Dragnet were very preachy and the police agreed with every decision they made while Law and Order does a good job at presenting the story and the different, dissenting opinions and allows the viewer to decide how to feel about it while the police and lawyers didn't always agree with their own actions but performed them anyway.

@ChristianRau I certainly know it wasn't a socialist country... I'll think of a way to clarify it, it's more to compare/contrast the genre on both sides of the Wall before the fall and then the genre once unified.

comment Why do British sitcoms have so many fewer episodes than American ones?
I just had this exact same conversation with a co-worker from New Zealand (about The Office and The IT Crowd actually) about he said they justify it by saying it's more about the art than the money/profit. I told him that's an excuse for a lack of budget and fear of "jumping the shark." Purely anecdotal and speculative though :) We also agreed that the US version of The Office was really only good for about the first 14 episodes anyway...
