The Week in Entertainment
TV: The Middle was touching, and Modern Family was very funny, especially Phil vs. his nemesis, the hyterically named Gil Thorp. Psych - I like Gus & Rachel, they're growing on me. And Lassiter and Marlow's wedding was priceless - I love that he was in white and she had a red bridal gown. (But seriously? This is the first time Juliet has suspected that Shawn is faking being a psychic?) And of course!! Three episodes of Doctor Who, a frenetic introduction to Clara Oswald. Clearly, who is this impossible girl is going to be the arc of the rest of this season. My first question: how come the TARDIS didn't make her understand all the people at the bazaar? "They call him the Mad Monk." "They shouldn't. He's most definitely not a monk." I like the new coat, by the way. Also the new theme. "Did you just lock us in?" "Yep." "With the soul-eating monster?" "Yep." "Is there actually a way to get out?" "What? Before it eats our souls?" "Ideally, yeah." "Possibly. Probably. There usually seems to be."
Read: The Roman Hat Mystery by Ellery Queen; I'm sure I read this back in college, if not high school - I remembered how the murdered man's hat was removed from the scene - but I did not remember the motive at all. Blackmailed for "a drop of Negro blood", which would have ruined him, of course. Yikes. Also read - devoured, actually - Hugh Howey's "Molly Fyde" tetrology. Wow, that man can write.
