little review

Poem for Tuesday

Collapse )

For a terrible week, Monday was not a particularly terrible day. Did some holiday shopping. Had wonderful Indian food with the wonderful beeej who brought me holiday cards and last week's Boston Legal two-parter. *bows and kisses her feet* Wrote an article about Star Trek Online full of incomprehensible acronyms about the MMORPG's RTS style and PVP matches that is sure to earn me mail from gamers telling me how ignorant I am. Did some catch-up with celandineb, schemingreader and gblvr on various matters. Became Public Enemy No. 1 for forcing my children to work on magnet school application essays when they wanted to play. Had spectacular sex with Alan Rickman. Discovered that the Bush administration is about to be portrayed in a cartoon showing them as they really are: elementary school bullies.

Heroes really rocked, even though every time I was thinking, "Wow, this is good!" I was reminding myself of all the ways in which it was likely to follow the X-Files - La Femme Nikita - Lost pattern and outstay its usefulness and blow apart its own mythology. I think it's the first time I got a really good look at Santiago Cabrera without the glassy eyes or the druggie demeanor, and I had a huge moment of OMGIWANTTHATFORCHANUKAH! This is the first time in a very long time I've watched a show with a huge ensemble cast where I have really liked every single storyline and there wasn't one that made me want to run screaming into the kitchen for ice cream or something.
