Veterans' Day...

Nothing to post, art-wise. I spent most of the day doing some stuff with the wife. She had Veterans' Day off. There were some neat movies at Best Buy I'm going to have to save my sheckles for. Of note is "The Shuttered Room," which I haven't seen in years and missed on TCM this year. I did pick up "Treasure of Matacombe" from Disney, because it was very inexpensive.

I watched "Fringe" tonight instead of "The Mentalist," which put my wife off--she likes the main guy on "The Mentalist." I find him annoying. If there is one thing I would change about "Fringe," it would be to put some menace to the doctor. The producers have him as irritatingly docile and kooky, but if he's suppose to be a bit of a "Dr. Frankenstein," there needs to be some sense of danger. He needs to be more of a Hannibal Lector, minus the cannibalism, but definitely with the narcissism and nihilism.

NCIS is better than it had been. I didn't like the whole "Frog" storyline the past 2 seasons. Hopefully, this "mole" storyline will play out a bit.

And don't get me started on "Heroes."

Word on the street is that "Walter is manic-depressive, and we've only seen his manic side so far — we haven't seen any of his 'dark' side yet." So I think you may get your menace soon... :)

Don't get me wrong. I like the show. It just needs some "Umpf!" And it doesn't have a good lead in as "House" is getting regularly by NCIS. I hope they introduce some of Walter's "darkness" soon, because he's a little too much of a teddy bear now.
