The Week in Entertainment
DVD: Some of the old show The Girl from UNCLE, as goofy as I remembered it. Dated, of course (including that title) but fun.
TV: Grimm, which attempted to pay off all the "Juliet does something horrible - oh wait it's a dream" bits with a moment of "Juliet does something horrible FOR REALZ" but blew it buy showing us Sean watching her do it. Galavant ended. It was a bit uneven, but still amusing and entertaining. The stunt casting mostly worked, though Ricky Gervais did not. I wonder if there will be a second season - they certainly set up for one. The Mentalist has gone back to being really fun to watch.
Read:One of the oddest books I've read in a long time, Mort(e), about an ant that tries to take over the world by slaughtering humans and turning animals into people. It is astonishing and doesn't go where I thought it would. Ever. Gideon, a pretty good novel about those who try to protect the world from the darkness and what happens when they make a pretty big mistake. Skylight, a "new" José Saramago novel, meaning one he wrote in the early 50s that languished in a publisher's office and then remained in Saramago's possession and which has been newly translated. It's a fascinating look at his early work, and a very good book in its own right.
