Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

I got a lot of laundry done as well as some dishes, yesterday, and while doing so, I worked my way through much TV; Netflix disc (Dolphin Tales) and streaming.

DT felt like standard Disney stuff; it was well-filmed, and left you feeling pretty good. I watched for a few minutes each 3 Musketeers, which appeared to be a rather putrid updating using various spy cliches; I dumped it pretty quickly. I followed that with Season of the Witch; I watched a bit more of this one, but dumped it about fifteen minutes in. Too bad.

OTOH, after prompting by sekl, we put on Lilyhammer, a series done by Netflix itself to produce content, and the episodes are pretty good. The postulate is that the protagonist was relatively high up in the Mafia in New York, but when his new boss tries to bump him off, he turns state's evidence, and then in the Witness Protection Program, he asks to be sent to Norway. Hijinks ensue when he runs into the cultural differences between an American of his background and the society of small-town Norway. Pretty good for an early effort!

I had intended to get one more thing done yesterday, and then totally forgot about it. I'm not sure when I'll get another chance, but it has to get done, and I'll do my best to be about it...
