TV Tuesday

Firefly - Shindig

First, news: Firefly will be on SciFi Channel this Friday — a full day marathon!  So if you belong to the unfortunate minority who hasn't seen it, now's your chance.

I've been watching TV like a silly little nut for the past few days. "Project Runway" starts on Bravo tomorrow night at 10pm, and based on tonight's "Road to Runway" it will be an exciting new season.

couch potatoI've also been renting DVDs of the first season of "Lost" — after hearing from everyone whose opinions I respect and whose tastes run similar to my own, I had to find out what I was missing.  16 episodes into it, I have to say, it is fabulous. Looks like I'm going to have to buy the box set.

Right now I am watching Jay Leno, because Owen Wilson is going to be the guest star, and c'mon, he's OWEN WILSON. Yeah, Katja, you should be here — his new movie "You, Me, and Dupree" opens this weekend, and he has NUDE SCENES! eeeee! .... Other movies I'm looking forward to include Uma Thurman and Luke Wilson in "My Super Ex-Girlfriend" and the Supreme Yummy, Johnny Depp, in "Pirates."

In other news, basement is still drying, but the mold smell is gone, and the cat litter has been removed, so now that weird kittylit smell is gone too. Whew!

As for Luminarium, I'm hard at work on a new section: Renaissance Drama. Last weekend, I decided on the dramatists to include, designed the cover page, and finished the introduction to Renaissance Drama. Yesterday, I finished sites for John Heywood and Thomas Kyd, and I'm working on George Peele at present. Never a dull moment at this house, if Early Modern literature is your "thang" :P

Alrighty, I've nothing important to contribute or share, so I'm gonna go back to my TV wonderland — next up, "Queer Eye" and some HGTV, whee! BTW, a "Medieval Makeover" on "Queer Eye" next Tuesday night at 10pm. Hehehe! Laters all :)

The best way to watch LOST is one SEASON at the time :) That's the way I did it too. I couldn't have waited for a week for the next episode.

Oh, Owen... "You, Me, and Dupree" opens September 29th here, so I have to wait loooooooooong :(

Yeah, I agree. The third season starts here in September, and I will very likely DIE when I have to wait a week between episodes!
