Where'd WHO go?

I honestly don't know how October totally flew past me and pretty much left me with the feeling that I gained an hour somehow.

Given the amount of activity I've had in just these first three days of November I suppose that months flying by me shouldn't be an altogether new feeling for me. To date, I've worked until about 8:00 p.m. on two of the first three days of November. Sunday was fairly leisurely and then, all of a sudden, it was 7:00 p.m. By rights, I should be completely exhausted but will end up forcing myself to go to sleep because tomorrow is shaping up to be just as busy--except I won't be working until 8:00 p.m. (but will do so on Thursday). Next week's already shaping up to be very similar to this week. Thankfully, a week off at the end of November will be a welcome respite (AND there WILL be some Magic played with family & friends).

Was quite pleased with the updated V. Having watched a bit of the original again over the weekend (thanks to SyFy), I was reminded how horribly dated the thing was. Don't get me wrong, I recall being on the edge of my seat when it was originally on. Not only that, but I spent an inordinate amount of time drawing quite a bit of the alien ships, symbols and such. It's quite easy to see why an updated version was introduced--given the state of things lately. Still, it's a BIG risk putting a sci-fi show on against the much more inexpensive to produce scripted-reality programming that's out there. If things don't go well, ABC could just make it a single season thing--much like quite a few BBC shows seem to be and very much in the fashion that ABC treated Life on Mars. Need to watch the original BBC one, to be sure. I understand the ending to it is infinitely better that what we got in the U.S.

The next show I'm looking forward to is The Prisoner. I know the original by reputation alone, so I won't have all the baggage that fans of the original series will be bringing along when watching the updated version.

Yes, I watch too much television.

Oh, and I don't care how many Christmas presents you throw out into the crowd, you're still creepy Max Shreck--I mean, Christopher Walken.
