While SGA is on hiatus, I'm watching other stuff + some weird news

I swear, I've lost track of what's on TV with the WGA strike, and oddly enough, don't care. TV sure ain't what it used to be. Anyway, I have actually made an effort to watch Fox's NEW AMSTERDAM, with Danish actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who is a refreshing new face on the TV scene. The show reminds me a bit of FOREVER KNIGHT, which I consider to be the best of the vampires in modern day society (with the exception of the pilot movie for NIGHT STALKER which I adored with a vampire running loose in Las Vegas!) . Not sure of NA's ratings, but hope it lasts at least one season.

Let's see. What else? Seems CSI is coming back, but now I'm watching MEDIUM on NBC, so will timeshare CSI: MIAMI on the DVR instead. In the 'that's 90 minutes of my life I'll never get back,' I let THE HILLS HAVE EYES II run while I was busy doing programming for an upcoming con, so it's not like I was actually watching per se, but man, what a wretched waste of film and fake blood. As usual in these pretty much 'who is that?' actor in the lead, you just watch five minutes and go "ah, he'll live, she'll live and the rest will all die HORRIBLY." yup, nailed that one. On the other extreme, I recommend NOTES ON A SCANDAL with Judi Dench. Excellent film about a new young teacher who befriends the older and pretty much friendless teacher, and things go to hell when the younger teacher gets involved with a much younger student. Then I saw HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE, which is a Japanese animated flick with witches and scorers and Christian Bale voices the male protagonist and it's had a better plot than most live action movies. Oh, saw the last hour or so of Mel Gibson's APOLCALYPTO. No matter what you think of the man, the segment of the film I saw was great and I have to find another airing on cable and watch the whole thing. I tried to watch NATIONAL TREASURE last night but couldn't get into it. I tried. Maybe I should borrow a DVD instead.

Oh, there was a GREAT show on Discovery called "Eaten Alive." Came in on ten minutes in. All about parasites in people. The creeping nematode reminded me sooo much of what I did to poor Sheppard in myfanfic "I've Got You Under My Skin." Some of those medical shows are just fascinating, like the "Root Man" show. Whoa, now that was weird, but did you heara bout the two-faced baby born in India? No joke. It was in the news today. The baby has two faces on the head. I'm beginning to think there's a LOT of nasty chemical pollution in India with the weird birth defects that are showing up. If you're curious, The Sun has up a photo article at http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/article927982.ece

Nothing new to report on Zombie Bambi, for those following that storyline ;)
