Good stuff. Really enjoyed part one.

Quite interesting.  Unfortunately I will not be able to watch the show every evening that it is on, so I hope it comes out on DVD.

That's a great show. I have a morbid interest in homicide. Not acting it out, but hearing about others acting it out. Unless we are talking about Mor Ephrem or that neigbour that shot my dog.

No, where I live they repeat the games late at night. I get to catch up on games I missed when I was watching something else.

So you are interested in acting out homicide if it's about killing me or your neighbour.

Was followed by a "went to bed" comment. I wasn't sure whether to say "Well that's appropriate" or "TMI".

*is disturbed*  :o

Disturbed? TRUE! --nervous --very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I am mad? The disease had sharpened my senses --not destroyed --not dulled them. Above all was the sense of hearing acute. I heard all things in the heaven and in the earth. I heard many things in hell. How, then, am I mad? Hearken! and observe how healthily --how calmly I can tell you the whole story.

Strictly Come Dancing has kicked off for another season (the 12th). There have been some very high scores even on the first round. Once the hopeless ones are weeded out, competition is going to be fierce.

I watched House over the summer and I'm watching Lost now. They were both big at around the same time so you see a lot of the same names in direction and production on the credits.

I also watched House over the summer, and laughed every time someone (especially an intern) that I had previously seen on the show Bones was on there. ;D

I tried (on Netflix) watching Dexter the whole way through again, despite the horrible last season. (Spoilers...) I don't think it's gonna happen though. I'm up to the first couple episodes of season 4, but frankly I disliked the Trinity Killer character (unlike most people it seems), and don't think I have much interest in watching that over again, especially considering what happens to Rita at the end of the season, which makes me even more frustrated given that Dex had just kicked to the curb that British [w]itch, whose character I also did not like. (That was an awesome comma-cool [pronounced "comical" {unless you don't want to |since you don't have to|}] sentence!) On the other hand, I did really like that gay Ukrainian villain in season 7. I mean not like like, but just like. He's just an actor playing a gay character, he's not actually gay like you and me, you realize that, right? Anyway, so yeah, that Isaac cat was pretty cool, so I might watch the episodes he is in (I just wish Quinn didn't play such a large part). Also, I wanna see Deb go through the incest-avalanche-of-feelings and let's-murder-our-boss and such. Not the aftermath though, that beginning of Season 8 stuff about her having gone off the rails was boring I thought. Ok.

To add--(still spoilers)--regarding the final episode, I'm still trying to figure out if they were idiots, morons, moronic idiots, idiotic morons, or just dumb (the b is silent). So so horrible. The best solution I've come up with, which at least keeps me from throwing things at my TV when I think about the episode, is to try to see it as though it was meant as some kind of absurdist humor. That's pretty much how I swallow the NewsRadio finale, though that's a bit different in that the final episode was just bad, and not crap-in-your-hand-and-throw-it horrible; plus with NewsRadio the entire premise and working out of the show, and the main or secondary plot of almost every episode, had an absurdist element to it. Ok. Again.
