Couch potato

There was nothing on the TV as usual...the 20th anniversary episode of EastEnders was as dull as dishwater, even though it got rid of not one, but two would-be gangsters. One got pushed into oncoming traffic on the motorway, and the other got his head bashed in with a door stop. And I just sat there watching it, not even trying to stifle my yawns.

I was mildly interested though, in the news that from the first week of March, a Dutch channel is going to broadcast Lost, which judging from the trailer seems to be about a plane crash, and Desperate Housewives, of which I've heard my flist talk so much in recent weeks. I don't know, it might be good -- I am so in need of a good show to watch now that there's no more AtS.

Meanwhile, some of my NYC acquaintances should be about getting ready for the CoRo gig tonight. Oh, how I wish I were there with them right now!

I watched Michael Wood, but that was about it.

Oh God, what legendary place was it tonight? Was it any good? Did you learn anything new?

It was Jason and the Argonaunts. I learned lots (because it's not a story I'm that familiar with). Istanbul was in it.

Oh, so you've had a sneak preview of where you'll end up this autumn? Cool!

It isn't a complete mystery. I did watch Byzantium!

Yeah well, the place looked different when it was Byzantium. For one thing, the horses on top of San Marco in Venice were still perched atop their pillar in the Hippodrome. But as that old song my mother used to sing goes: now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople...

It's quite dusty, you know. You go to the hamam after traipsing through town, you won't believe how much dirt they'll scrape off your skin.

I can cope with that. I've been to Glastonbury.

I'm not off of work yet, but today is actually a good TV night for me. Scifi has Stargate SG1, Stargate Atlantis and BSG. (As well as Andromeda which they have moved into an early time slot and I never get to see anymore.)

Sounds like a scifi bonanza night -- enjoy!

I will.

Oh, and I was reading something earlier where they were talking about Apollo and discribed him as snarky. I hadn't thought about it until then, but...I'm I that predictable?

Snarky? That doesn't sound like the old Apollo at all!

And are you that predictable? Only you can be the judge of that...;-)

I'm the opposite of most of my friends list: I watch Lost, but am not terribly caught up in it, but I won't miss an episode of Desperate Housewives. Both are hugely popular new shows this season, and I'm really curious to know what you think of them.

I'll be sure to let you know in about two weeks time!

For now though, I catch the occasional Gilmore Girls, which is...cute, for want of a better word. The other day, I was pleasantly surprised to see Danny Strong appear in it!

Hmmm....Lost is nice (there's Sawyer, for instance. the SPike of Lost) , but I stopped watching Desperate Housewives after the third or fourth ep, although I enjoyed it a lot at first. The show I really like is Carnivale. It's been shown on Belgian TV (Kanvas), and is now in its second series. Beautifully shot, fascinating story...

There's a Spike-clone on Lost? This, I've got to see...
