Apparently I like doing this every other day.

Day 17 - Favorite mini series
Day 18 - Favorite title sequence


Um... I don't actually have a favorite mini-series. I do love the Colin Firth Pride & Prejudice, but mini-series-es are the kinds of things that I put into my Netflix queue and discover later. Prospective favorite mini-series-es: The War, Band of Brothers, Jane Eyre, Tin Man, The Pacific.

Favorite title sequence... well, since there is no "favorite theme song," I'll use this to say how much the theme song from Damages kicks ass. The title sequence is really slick too.

01. i saw revolutionary road this weekend. i was struck by:

-how much it felt like a play. closer was a play that really worked as a movie; revolutionary road is apparently based on a book but i was watching it with subtitles, and kate and leo's line deliveries and dramatic gestures did make it feel really play-like.
-how much leo's character was like pete campbell from mad men, only slightly less of a sociopath.

i'm of the opinion that if you like the movie, you'll love mad men. it has a lot of the same elements, the same ambiguity, but i feel that it's done better.

02. damages has really kicked it up a few notches, especially with last night's episode.

and all that crap about your family )

03. in fact, maybe it's time for us to talk justified. i've really enjoyed it so far, and the preview for tonight's ep looks like it is also going to be great. now i want to read some elmore leonard.

04. chuck! on to the spoilers! )

05. on sunday i just watched an old episode of community for the hell of it (it was the phys ed one). i do love that show, and i wish it would come back on, but apparently it's coming back the same week chuck is, which makes me sad. i can't wait until the DVD set comes out so i can get more people watching. =D

06. i would be so happy if scifi would air reruns of mst3k once a week like they used to. even on saturday mornings, like they used to. *sigh*

07. part 2 of the law & order: criminal intent season premiere tonight. i hope everyone currently alive stays alive and that there is more hugging and marriage-feigning tonight.
