I watched Eleventh Hour tonight, Rufus Sewell, really good compared to what I thought it would be, we'll watch it again.

It was a hard choice between Life on Mars and Eleventh Hour. I ended up watching Life on Mars -- much better than I thought it would be, and the recreation of 1970's New York was damn spooky -- the shot of the Twin Towers made my heart stop.

You're not the only one! I was born in 73, and it was finished in 73, so we were both babies, so to speak and I started to tear up.

In one scene Sam is looking at the Daily News and it says "U.S Announces Suspension of Offensive Action in North Vietnam", I looked it up, it happened Jan 15, 1973, that didn't look like Jan in NY, unless I dated it wrong.

I watched part of it, but was flipping between that and another show.

I thought it was interesting, espically the way they treated the female cop. Man, we have made some progress ladies, though, not as much as I would like.

In the first episode of the new season of "The Starter Wife", titled "The 40 Year Old Virgin Queen", Debra Messing has a dream that she's Elizabeth I and swearing off men forever. I can't find an image of it.

After watching the end of the excellent Tess last Sunday, (and sobbing even though I knew what was coming) we Brits are in for another treat this Sunday, but of the comedy variety. We have a very funny comedian/writer/comedy actor called Peter Kay, who is giving us his gentle send-up of reality tv in Britain's Got the Pop Factor and Possibly a New Celebrity Jesus Christ Soapstar Superstar Strictly on Ice!!!! As you can guess from the title, he's having a pop at a lot of these shows, but he's usually very funny and hits the targets brilliantly, without cruelty. I can't wait. :D

If just started watching The Legend of the Seeker on the CW and so far the first two episodes are very good.
Also, the kids and I are waiting for the third season of Kyle XY in January.
