This and that

A little bit about several things:

Suzanne has posted her review of the terrific Supernatural episode “The End” at Damsel Undistressed.  As usual, it’s great.   Television Without Pity really needs to hire her to replace the current Supernatural recapper.  First of all, it’s the following Thursday and he still hasn’t posted his full recap.  And when he does, half of it will be spent on inane, redundant verbal exchanges with Raoul, the imaginary gay dragon, which add absolutely nothing to the recap (other than making it longer).  [Ok, since I wrote this, the TWoP recap has been posted, but still!.]

I’m not sure I’ll continue watching FlashForward.  How many “I won’t cheat on you” speeches did we hear last week?  It ended up feeling like nothing but time-filler.   I really like Joseph Fiennes and Courtney B. Vance (see, there is life after Law & Order: Criminal Intent), but I’m not sure it’s enough to overcome the annoyances.

Yes, I’m way overdue on my Warehouse 13 season finale thoughts.  But I do have them!  I just need to rewatch the episode to refresh my memory.

I’ve been looking for the Sookie Stackhouse novels (from which True Blood was born).  Ellis Flynn keeps urging me to read them.  The early ones are always checked out from the library.  So I decided to pick one up at Barnes & Noble; but they didn’t have any.  However, I did find the first of Charlaine Harris’s Lily Bard novels, Shakespeare’s Landlord.  It’s not scifi or paranormal based, but it was so good (she’s a terrific writer), I subsequently read the second novel, Shakespeare Champion.  I highly enjoyed the murder mystery, but was disappointed by the turns in Lily’s love life.  Sort of like how I’m not liking the coming changes in Sookie’s love life.

  1. Sookie’s love life turmoil perturbed me until I remembered that she didn’t have one, really, before Bill entered her life. She’s still evolving when it comes to interpersonal relationships. Or at least that’s what I tell myself!

    • She’s still evolving when it comes to interpersonal relationships.

      You’re right! I keep forgetting that. See, that’s why it’s great to have a romance “professional” around. 😀

  2. Try Harris’s other series starring Harper Connelly (she sees dead people :)) – the first in the series is Grave Sight. I prefer it over the Sookie books. Tho I did enjoy True Blood Season 1 (haven’t seen anything of Season 2 yet – waiting on Netflix!)

    Enjoyed Suzanne’s recap of The End. Awesome ep!

    I have three eps of Flash Forward on tape – hope to catch up with them this weekend. I’m hearing mixed reviews on the series – we’ll see if I make it though all three eps.

    Love Warehouse 13! Looking forward to reading your thoughts on the finale.

    • I’ll definitely check out the Harper Connelly books. They sound good.

      Well, I will get that Warehouse 13 review written one of these days! 😀
