"New Tricks" on PBS just now:

The team concludes a tricky case, and Sandra has news for the 
rest them.  She keeps them in suspense, however, and Brian 
fearing the worst, comments "pastures new."  But it turns out 
that the powers that be have decided to to keep the UCOS unit 
going.  I suppose the writers  could have unbearably pedantic and 
had the literary Brian continue:  ". . . til old experience do 
attain/To something like prophetic strain."
