Watched TV, mostly. What they say
about The Wire
is true; it's an amazing show that's only gotten better with age. I can now speak with authority on this because I've watched all three seasons
over the last few weeks. Although the first two were excellent, for my money the third season (the famous "Hamsterdam" plotline) is heads and tails above the rest -- the finest season of television since the first season of The Sopranos
. Get started on it if you haven't.
The season premiere of Battlestar Galactica
was this weekend, and it too was excellent, among the best episodes that show has ever produced. The Television Without Pity forums has all the moral ambiguities
covered. I only wish we were going to spend more time on this plotline before getting back to the search for Earth.
It's a good time to like the shows I like.
