I think I plan to download it instead of waiting for it on NBC.

I confess, I like some of the reality tv out there, such as Project Runway and America's Toughest Jobs. More than a year now I was busy watching a Korean historical drama on one of the foriegn channels that was pretty good and impressive -- it concluded last Saturday and now my weekends are free again. And of course, House starts up again soon. I don't know what PBS has in store for Masterpiece yet, but it's usually pretty good.

I'm really looking forward to Tess of the D'Urbervilles tonight on the Beeb. I bought the ITV version a few months ago, which I loved, so it will be interesting to see if the Beeb's version is as good. But then again, they have a great reputation with the Classics. Can't wait. It's up against a new Poirot on the other side, so I'll have to dig out a video. It's so frustrating that they put the quality stuff against each other, when there's not much on at other times.

I'm also loving Lost in Austen although I'm finding it a bit confusing in parts. Of course it doesn't make sense, after all a 21st century girl has entered the fictional world of a novel, so it's hardly fair to nitpick at things. However, I did find myself thinking, where did she get the paracetomol from, and the make-up? She didn't have them on her when she entered the world, or did she, did I miss something?

Watched one of my favourite films last night on tv, Shakespeare in Love. Great film.

I've been downloading "Lost in Austen", I haven't watched Ep 2 yet. There's been new Poirot's?! I miss that show, I haven't seen an new ones in ages! It's still David Suchet right?

The only reality shows I watch are Dancing With the Stars, So You Think You Can Dance, American Idol (but I'm not sure if I'm watching it this year or not), and Greatest American Dog.

PS. Tely, I love "House", Hugh Laurie is so wonderful in the role, and very sexy but only if he keeps the stubble, without it, eh not as much.

Yes, it's still David Suchet, and I believe we have 3 new ones to look forward to. Incidentally, he's the subject of this week's Who Do You Think You Are? which is a fascinating series on family history. I don't know if you get it outside of the UK, but if you can take a look, it's a really interesting programme, tracing back family roots. There's often not a dry eye in sight, when people find out their lineage.

I'll gleefully watch Hugh Laurie in just about anything -- he was on Jay Leno the other night, and mentioned that he has an awful time with some of the technical terms that he uses in "House". Have you seen him in the "Jeeves and Wooster" adaptations? A scream.

I have his Leno on DVR, will watch later today. I really haven't watched much of his previous work because I just prefer his look as "House", but I did love "Blackadder" but not for Hugh.

"New Amsterdam" (FOX) won't be coming back in the fall. I liked the history bits about NYC.
