Tis fair cold out today boys Fair cold. Could even have done with a hat, gloves, and a scarf. Guess it really is October now. And autumn or fall. Whatever, I’m all about embracing the multitude of cultures. So happy Eid-ul-Fitr. And yes, that was yesterday but still. Effort here. And of course happy Rosh Hashanah and welcome to the year 5769
And any and all other religious/important dates, celebrations, holidays and general good days.
Fringe started on de telly last. I watched it, you know, cause of the whole “by the people who brought you Lost” hype. Course that really should have been a warning to avoid shouldn’t it? Anyways, the pilot was okay. Not fantastic, but not terrible, and it has Denethor so I think I’ll watch a few more before I decide one way or the other. It also has Pacey though, so I must dock points for that. But it gets a whole heap of points on account of having Lt. Daniels. He de man!
I know you shouldn’t make total judgements from a pilot, a lot will change, they have the whole set-up and introduction of the characters to get through. But for something supposed to be all about the omg whats happening, it actually seemed a little predictable in its plot.
And have you noticed the way that all the cool shows now seem to have women in the lead roles. As though the makers are saying, you know what, if we have a pretty face up front then the fellas will tune in to watch that. And the women will follow their lead but also be able to identify Which okay, is better than no women on the telly. But a lot of them seem to be used more because other shows are doing it rather than actually creating proper characters. Cause Olivia seems a bit of a tool so far Now maybe it’ll pay off later on, but Show Spoiler ▼
And did you notice that all the other characters with actual roles were men. See, the little woman cannae do anything without help and guidance from the menfolks.
But then again, it has a cow. So we must watch more.
