OK. I was just watching a bit of an NCIS episode from a few years back ("Collateral Damage" is the title, I believe...), in which a character was being evaluated to be a possible NCIS agent. In it, a character mentioned that the guy in question had gotten his degree through distance learning, as though it were a negative. (BTW, the character did prove himself to be agent material in the end...but he's not returned to the show...) I know the Open University has featured in several UK films and productions. But, do any of you know of other works of popular culture that include DL in them?
