Trying Mad Men again. Third time’s the charm?
Battlestar Galactica I sort of can’t believe I’m watching these. And yet —
Boston legal Totally hilarious.
Looking for Lincoln What an odd show — I’m wondering how much I’m liking Henry Louis Gates’s personal journey to an understanding of Lincoln. M kept making noises about how unfair it was. I don’t know — it’s all kind of a setup anyway. Any icon is going to turn out to have been an actual person with warts, etc. Perhaps the surprising thing is that gates was surprised. Did I like the set-ups — gates coming to Doris Kearns Goodwin’s house, or the dinner party with the Lincoln scholars (and where where they? It looked like they were eating in someone’s foyer.) Well, maybe — I just imagine Doris having to clean up her house. I’d have to buy new furniture. But — it actually was informative. The biographer’s oral histories — those would be worth looking at.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (god help us . . .)
I have never been able to get into Mad Men. So I’m deeply curious: Is the third time a charm?
Nope — still got no further.
I am so happy to have some company here outside the Mad Men tent. I rather like it out here. There’s a lot less smoke, for one thing.
It’s just too awful — blech.
