Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

With forestcats away at a meeting for the evening in Orange County, I was unofficially a bachelor last night, so I spent most of it catching up on Netflix material of interest only to me.

First, I finished another ST:TNG disc from season seven, and I was pleasantly surprised by a very good episode, called Lower Decks. Now, that was a solid piece of work, and I wish we'd seen more of the same. The rest were all forgettable.

The second thing I watched was a newer movie with Robin Williams, called License to Wed, which was cute. Williams plays a pastor who's running a premarital course. Hijinks ensue. Cute.

I finished another mystery novel, yesterday, this one being The Poisoned Chalice, by Michael Clynes, a nom de plume of Paul Doherty. It's the second book of a series about agents/investigators for the court of Henry VIII of England. Not a bad read; there's several more books of the series to go, and then Doherty has one more name he's written under, and then I've finally caught up with all his works.

I also read a couple of comics from this week. The first was Y: The Last Man #59; the last panel at the bottom said "Conclusion", and I don't know if that means that the saga ends with this book, or if it's the name of the last several issues. Anyway, it's a possible end point, so that might be all that'll be written in this book. The next one was Return to Wonderland #4: gorey, weird, not quite the vision that I had for Wonderland.
