Yep, I think it is. As cut-throat as the bean-counters have gotten, there's been too much hype building towards the finale of the story for them not to do the final season.

That's the book I've read, Barno - it's as intense as reading American Psycho.

Current TV joy: Better Off Ted.

Why? Cheerful satire of corporate America, and that's a thing of joy. It's must-watch.

I can't believe you weren't aware that tonight was the screening of the pilot episode of "Lady Christina And The Flying Bus."

Magic DVD Player? Sounds like a Disc Ex Machina...

But Jenny can hop on board the magic bus if she likes. Razz

I've just finished watching tonight's CSI episode. It's a very clever deconstruction on Star Trek mythology, focused on a Sci-Fi Convention called "WhatIf-Icon". From the pre-credit sequence that ended with the line "he's dead, Jim", to the reconstructions of scenes from the classic series, this episode frequently had me laughing out loud.

And then I thought about the alternative... what if a Doctor Who version of this murder story based on obsessed fans irked over mythology of the series being 'taken over' happened. Hmm.

Well, I'll ponder that further when CSI: Cardiff becomes a show. In the meantime, I highly recommend tonight's episode of CSI. You should see if you can find it on Hulu or at CBS.com- it's well worth the viewing.

Rather than CSI, you could probably do a fun New Tricks episode that centred around missing episodes of an old Sci-Fi series...Professor X, maybe? Smile

Never seen New Tricks, but CBS.com has uploaded last night's CSI episode. It's called "A Space Oddity."

You know what Hulu is, C=O.


It's a type of dancing done in a grass skirt.

or it's this lot: Hulu, where I does most, if not all, of me TV watching.
