Teh Squeaky Wheel
Good morning, and good night.
Hope everyone does well today in their things that they do.
I need some sleep now,
I wonder if that cat’s claws are in or out?
Good night, Dv8 -- rest well.
Happy Monday, GN -- what fresh hell awaits us today?
Watching SOTUSBlog -- nothing of major import released so far unless it’s down in the weeds of life.
Happy Cover-up Monday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, dv8 (and Harper!), and Sven!
Good night, dv8. Rest well.
Sven -- I wonder if they (SCOTUS) will wait until later in the day to minimize rioting?
HI, Paddy -- looks like maybe Wednesday.
Of course we should be more like Canada…
what a fuk hed.
“Stocks tumble” is a popular headline today. Thanks, Brandon!
Sven, Thank you for the guidance on The Mentalist. I did record and watch that episode, I tend to like origin stories.(I caught Firefly all backward, watching the movie first, then the series. I did like the origin story there as well, though I knew the characters by then.)
I recorded and looked at the next four episodes, not sure at this point. I think I might try starting at the beginning and see if it catches me. I like the actor, and the character is interesting, but the Perry Mason aspect bothers me. Guess I will see. In any case, thank you.
Sometimes starting in the middle is best for me. One of the few series I got hooked on was Forever Knight. When I saw it in TV Guide I thought it sounded stupid so I ignored it. I happened to catch the first episode of the second year and I was hooked. I ended up buying the whole series on DVD after following the second and third season to the end. If I had started with the first season I don’t think I would have watched more than a couple. I do that with books at times, if I can’t get into it I may start in the middle. I have often gotten engaged that way and ended up reading the whole book.I have had that happen with movies too. I stopped watching some that I ended up really liking later when I tried them again after catching the middle.
If you wanted to jump around a bit, try Season 4 -- the last episode, The Crimson Hat. Then jump to Season 5 -- Episode 8: Red Sails in the Sunset, followed by Season 5 -- Episode 16: There Will be Blood. It’s a story arc involving a new character, Lorelei, that you might find interesting.
I’ll have to take a look at Forever Knight.
I did the same thing with Firefly.
It is about a vampire who becomes a police detective in Canada. The three seasons are each different. The series does wrap and the ending is quite different. There were just interesting characters and stories that caught me.
I don’t know why that showed as Anonymous.
