08:17 am forestcats and I went to see Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens yesterday, a bit earlier than I'd expected. I figured on going sometime later, assuming similar quality as Episode I - III, but the early buzz suggested a big improvement, so we made time to catch an early afternoon show. I wasn't disappointed. Although none of these films are perfect, I have far fewer complaints about this one. I refuse to spoil the fun for anyone who's yet to see the film, but I left the theater satisfied that the films are being dealt with in a fashion that will retain fan interest. On to the next film!
As a side note, we've been forging through Netflix streaming of NCIS and this weekend we caught up with the TV series on the DVR as well. There were great seasons, but the last few are less so. We'll see where it goes.
