Lorne: Once the word spreads you beat up an innocent old man, well, the truly terrible will think twice before going toe-to-toe with our Avenging Angel. Spike: Yes. The geriatric community will be soiling their nappies when they hear you're on the case. Bravo.

Life moves pretty fast. You don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

Wow, I KNEW I woke up early for a reason!

Top 5!!!! (3...is a magic number...)


On a slightly different note, I've watched the first two episodes of season 1 of DEADWOOD, and it's fascinating how much they have been referenced or otherwise echoed/contrasted with the last few epsiodes of the new season. The irony of Al & company protecting Sofia shows how far that character has gone from outright villain to someone much more complex.

Is there only one more ep of Deadwood left?

There are supposedly also going to be 2 (I assume) two-hour movies at some point, but I will believe that when I'm watching them.

Don't have cable myself, but I like hearing about Deadwood.

I haven't seen this week's episode of Deadwood yet, and may avert my eyes from this until I can catch up this evening.

That said, I've been watching The Corner, David Simon's pre-Wire show, which focuses (thus far) on a single family torn apart by crack addiction. It's lacking in The Wire's levity, although solidly written (and somewhat less solidly directed). Rather depressing, actually.

Well, I'm subscribed. I only have Showtime and I don't even know which shows are found there, but I figure if I poke a nose in here occasionally I might just find something new and interesting to watch. Which channel has Deadwood?

I think my reaction was, FUCKERS!

Also, could the theatre people just go away already? We don't have that much time left and they're wasting what little we have.
