The Week in Entertainment
DVD: Rewatched Om Shanti Om, Billu, and Khabi Khushi, Kahbhie Gham - because I was in the mood for some SRK song and dance.
TV: The Doctor, of course, in an atmospheric 'ghost' story. (Maybe I'm getting old, but Palmer didn't look old enough to have been in WWII...) Still not much feel for Clara, but if she's going to call the TARDIS a cow, she might be in for some more bumpy rides. Psych - what a brilliant episode. I loved the double-track story line (and Shawn's Irish Swedish accent cracked me up!). Stared at the The Mentalist on the DVR list and balked (at least for now) at the line "Meanwhile, Kirkland tries to uncover the extent of Jane's knowledge about Red John." I am so beyond sick of Red John and his godlike powers. I think I may be losing another show... On the other hand, I thought I had three Grimm, but one was preempted to celebrate catching the Boston bomber. The ones I caught up on - very nice. I'm really liking Renard - he was a Big Damn Hero, in fact, very cool - and his brother has no idea how little his "I'll tell the Grimm!" moves him. And I enjoyed "One Angry Fuchsbau", it was nice to see the little rat-guy again.
Read: Brian Switek's brilliant and engaging My Beloved Brontosaurus, a romp through paleontology and our evolving understanding of dinosaurs. Began Old Flames, a Cold War thriller that got good reviews.
