Lately, I've been watching the new (ok, not so new, since it came out in what..2005? So, I'm slow) Battlestar Galactica. I was resistant to watching it for rather a long time, until pretty much now in fact, despite the assurances that it was good, because when I was younger I loved the -hell- out of the original series(Battlestar Galactica 1980...ehh...not so much), and given my usual grumpyness about reboots, I grumped along for years until I finally agreed to give it a shot.

I find that I'm enjoying this, even with the changes to the characters (Boomer and Starbuck are female, Zack/Zak Adama is already dead, etc etc). There are lots of homages to the original series mixed in with the new story too, and thankfully, only a glimpse of Boxey, the annoying kid from the original series, and -no- robot dog daggit. Yey.

Just watched the most recent episode of FlashForward. I now have River's chant of "Two by two, hands of blue" stuck in my head. So far I'm liking this show. And Dominic Monaghan plays a bad guy. Whee.

It appears there is to be a new V series, or rather a re-make of it. Having not seen the original when it aired in the 80's, I'm undecided as to whether or not I want to watch this incarnation. I have yet to view the re-tooled Battlestar Galactica, although I'm told it was good, and I quite liked the original series.

We did watch the new...well it's not a spin-off of Lost but has some cast members, and is another of the "weird, unexplained shit happens and now they have to figure it out" type ideas. FlashForward, inspired by the novel of the same name, involves everyone in the world suddenly collapsing, and experiencing memories of a future event in their lives. It was pretty neat, and I'll probably watch at least a few more episodes just to see what's going on, etc. Which speaks well of the series, in a way, as I'm notoriously difficult to get to watch anything. [ profile] feylan had to pester me for months before I watched Firefly.

Yesterday was a spur of the moment trip to the Cape May Zoo with [ profile] feylan to do the photography thing, then lunch and a stop at Borders to pick up a book to read on my upcoming trip. I'll likely bring more than one book, but decided to pick up the first volume of The Dresden Files series, Storm Front.

Today involved a trip to the bank, lunch, and a stop at Lowe's for a new curtain rod (but now we need curtains since the old ones won't fit on the new rod), and toilet repair kit.

and, of course, dragons:
Adopt one today! Adopt one today!
