The Week in Entertainment
DVD: The rest of Vera - it's one of those 4-shows-a-season ones, like Lewis, though not nearly as good as Lewis. A few more eps of Monroe, which is engaging, though why Shepherd still likes him is a bit of a mystery.
TV: Them - James Arness, you are missed... Doctor Who - Rory! How splendid! I love the opening. The Last Centurion, indeed. I like this business of the Doctor calling in his debts - I'm not entirely sure how I feel about the River reveal (or why she didn't recognize Rory at the Pandorica) but I have to admit it was a helluvan ending.
Read: A brilliant YA called Shine, and an amusing one called Frindle - that recommendation via Arnold Zwicky's blog, by the way, as it's got a linguistic hook to it: what makes a word a "real" word? Three by GM Maliet, her DCI St. Just books Death of a Cozy Writer, Death and the Lit Chick, and Death at the Alma Mater. The culprit was a similar character in the first two books, but she changed it up drastically in the third. I like them. And some more of the Simonov - the war is still not going well for the Soviets.
