So much to do, so little time. Currently very busy with work, and have been for the past couple of weeks – and will be for at least part of the week to come, so I’m feeling less and less coherent. Sorry about that. Hopefully things will be back to normal by the end of next week, fingers crossed. Until then, I just hope I’ll be able to post as per my usual schedule.
Meanwhile, news are:
We’ve finally started watching Once Upon a Time, which enjoyable. It’s been picked up for a second series as well, so well done them. Need to set up a series link for Sunday, when Starling begins on Sky 1. Why you need to watch it? Brendan Coyle is in it, with Lesley Sharp.
Another show we’re watching (and probably prefer over the one just mentioned, to be brutally honest) is Grimm, which, too, is getting a second series. Which is more than can be said about Alcatraz, sadly.
News broke earlier in the week that Alcatraz hadn’t been picked up for a second series. Boo! Hauser kicks butt, and the show is surprisingly dark. You think you know what’s coming and then it surprises you with being just a shade darker than expected.
On an awesome note: The Avengers has smashed box office records and in a way, I can’t help but feel kind of vindicated on behalf of Joss Whedon. I don’t dare hope it will make certain networks think “hm, you know how we cancelled Firefly? Maybe we should make some more of that, come to think of it.” It would be awesome, but it’s unlikely. For now, if you haven’t seen The Avengers, you totally should, because it’s awesome.
And yes, there’s at least one shirtless scene. With Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) – not to be missed. No, I’m not talking about when he’s the Hulk, I’m talking when he’s Bruce Banner. But then again, that brainy look is HELLOOOOOOOOOOOO NURSE too:
