Happy Birthday Gil and Shelle and(belated)Feather!
Last night was my final CAT session - £50 a week no longer coming out of my pocket, but in a way it was very much worth it. We spent the hour reading out letters that we wrote to each other, which were nicely concordant. I'll probably post her letter to me later, with explanatory commentary and stuff. But in general, as I said to Bing yesterday:
I'm cured now and anything you still can't cope with is therefore your own problem.
Meanwhile at Chez Balcony we've started watching a new show, and I'm kicking myself for not watching it earlier - yep, finally we've started to watch Supernatural
. And yep, it's as good as I expected, although the strength comes from the fact that it's just a series of horror movies in 45 minutes (we've had homages to The Ring
, Blair Witch Project
, and Urban Legend
so far). The lighting's a bit unsaturated, like a horror movie. The plots are incredibly
contrived, like a horror movie. The mythology is dodgy at best (Seriously, they did an entire episode based on the legend of Mary Tudor and not once actually mentioned her by name) (like a horror movie) and the script often falls flat in its attempts to reconcile the need for exposition with believable suspense (like a horror movie) and the fact that the main characters already know everything. Basically, it's about 80% on look, plot, dialogue and content,and that's a solid 80% which is better than a lot of shows.
Aside from that - or maybe because of that, as I'm a sucker for horror movies - I'm loving it. So. silveraspen
, at what point can Mel hang out with the boys without being spoiled?
*Only not really.
