My oldest looked up episode summaries for S3 and ruined one story line for me, by telling me the critical point. Come to think of it, make that two story lines.

It's the last one this Sunday, so try to avoid any more spoilers (I don't know what's going to happen yet!).

I have to admit I don't mind spoilers, but it is a big issue for others....I did read of one BIG spoiler on Downtown S3(no I wont mention it :p ) but I do hope the whole Matthew/Mary thing will sort itself out....Will they/wont they is kinda getting boring. But I am gonna miss Iain Glenn(SP?) from the show.

He hasn't been in it for ages! Shirley MacLaine, as you probably know, is in it but not for very long, although she's entertaining while she's there. No match for Dame Maggie though. ;)

I don't know if you saw the Downtown Christmas special....But I expect Iain Glen is busy on GOT S 3(Which I can't wait to see!) I had hoped that Shirley would be in the third season throughout...But I knew she'd be no match for Maggie :D ;) ...I am really, really looking forward to it. I will probably watch it over Christmas.

House on Haunted Hill (with Vincent Price)
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"

Yes I did see it :)

After all the hype, I expected Shirley to be in the show for longer than she actually was, ah well.

There's a Christmas special this year too.

I'm also looking forward to GoT S3 ;)

As my husband took this week off work to help with getting the kids here and there while I am recovering from Surgery 2.0, we found ourselves with a day to ourselves when the kids where at schools dn daycare (I only work Tuesday's). So we went to the movies! We figured in the 7 years since we had our eldest, we had only been to the movies on our own once (and it was my choice - Marie Antoinette) and we took the kids to see Toy Story 3. I've taken the kids to a few other movies here and there, but my husband hadn't been for ages.

We saw Argo. Which was really good and really my husbands kind of movie which was good after all this time.

Rango - saw the trailers last year and was intrigued. Story is predictable, but the art direction and style is top-notch.
