    I added Fringe to my Netflix queue along with Mad Men but haven't started them yet.

    I've been watching Agents of SHIELD but not sure if I'll keep going with it; a lot depends on how much of a pet Skye becomes.

    The only other show I watch consistently is one that I've learned not to mention in this thread. :p

    Doctor Who fans, you may find this amusing. I'm only familiar a couple of docs so this makes me sort of want to go back and watch all the others:

    edit: decided to spoiler tag it cuz there's some Doctor deaths and uhhh... him dying is a spoiler? I guess? Should I spoiler out that statement too?

    I need to be in the right mood to watch something set in the barbarous fringes of civilization.


    ...hence the timing being right to watch a show set in Baltimore.

    I was devastated when they cancelled Deadwood, as I longed for a conclusion. Upon a rewatch, though, I found it holds up well despite this. Fantastic show.

    Bonus brush with fame. I'm friends with the brother of the actress who played Calamity Jane (hey Jello - they're both DC natives) and his daughter looks just like her. It was a little eerie when she was in preschool with my son. I kept expecting her to be swilling liquor and swearing a blue streak.

    Good job, instie and anakinsfan. You must watch all the Mad Mens, for it is the greatest of all possible shows.

    Man, the weather here sucks.


    Luckily, I'm about to get on a plane to sunny California where it is 71 degrees and marvelous.

    The roads are covered with ice covered with water here. I could hear my bike saying "nope nope nope" as I tried to ride it, and after looking at my life and my choices I decided to walk.

    Yeah but to be fair, you live in the realm of the frost giants. Weather in the US just can't compete.

    I'm in a turtleneck sweater and Uggs and I'm still kind of cold. (Yes, I'm also wearing pants. Shut up.) We had snow flurries earlier.

    I'll take it, I prefer colder weather. I hate it when I have to wear short sleeves at Thanksgiving or Christmas. It's just wrong, like wearing a jacket on July 4.

    Safe travels Jello. It's a yucky day for flying in DC.

    I don't know, we don't get any hurricanes or that sort of things.
    (And now you reminded me of one comedian's take of Finland's strengths: "For years we have built this IT knowhow, these international connections and the fact that we have guts to do anything, and now that Google builds a data center here, what's their reason for that? We have cold water.")

    Well, when the winter comes, the real winter, they will die like so many flies.

    Person of Interest. Michael Emerson FTW.

    And I still can't think of it as not a spinoff of LOST.

    It is. Apparently it might snow later. I'm going to miss first snow this season. Sadface.

    A_g: you'd think I'd have a smoking jacket, silk PJs, and velvet slippers. But I don't. I should fix that.
