I didn't mean to go a week between posts, but I've had the lurgy. Still got it, really, but at least some of the symptoms have gone. I was off work with it, which meant I had lots of time to watch stuff and read books and then discovered I didn't have enough energy for it. In this week I have watched:
The Thick of It
This would be because Doctor Who is back on. I went for the episode where Malcolm Tucker was very unlike himself after getting fired. It turns out that Thick of It is really hard going.
I wanted to re-watch this after Wimbledon and didn't get to it. A bit on the long side, but much more my brain-level last week. It was so weird seeing Centre Court looking like it did in 2004(!) - no hawkeye, digital scoreboard (rather than screen), no roof. What's amusing is that back then the whole idea of a British man in the final at Wimbledon was a fantasy...
I wish there'd been more of this than just the two episodes I needed to catch up on. It was just right for mindlessly watching without making me tired. Plus the usual complete and utter ridiculousness you expect from Downton Abbey.
I got a bit behind on this after the first two episodes (of eight, I think). I ended up watching about five this week, I think. I enjoyed it, although I had to watch it with the subtitles on because they keep whispering. At the end it looked like they were saying there's going to be another series, which I don't think there should be. It's the sort of thing that works great for one series, but can go OTT if they try and spin it out.
Turns out this was about my brain-level too. Although having seen it before could have helped with that. At least watching bits of it made me feel like I was doing something towards my SGA Santa fic. It reminded me how much I like Elizabeth's hair in season 3.
