I watched the stand-alone sequel to Dead like me tonight.

spoilery ) Not as good as the series proper, but OK pre-Halloween viewing.

During the past month(s) I've also watched a)season 1 of Psych, which is a rather good show though I barely can stand Shawn, b) season 1 of The Sarah Connor Chronicles, which also is quite good although I'm not really fannish about it (and now I'm really, really freaked out about Intelligent Transport Systems, which is not good since they are tangentially related to my work) and c) season 1 of Merlin, which isn't really all that great but I'm madly in love with it anyway. I could go on about it forever, but right now I will only say this.
GWEN IS COMPLETELY, UTTERLY MADE OF AWESOME. ARTHUR AND LANCELOT TOTALLY AGREE. (So does Morgana and Merlin.)

Winds of war, part 5: It used to make me fall asleep when it aired in the eighties...thank goodness for fast-forwarding. It's...terribly earnest and a bit slow, and marred by occasional race/ethnicity/size-fail.
I find the universally loathed Ali McGraw to be by far the least annoying of the too-old actors, and Polly Bergen as Pug's shallow, alcoholic, cheating wife Rhoda is a hoot. (She seems to be about the right age, too.)

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, season 1,episode 1-3: Don't care about the action sequences (or, at this stage, the bigger arc), but the dysfunctional family-vibe between Sarah, John and Cameron is both fascinating and funny. I don't feel fannish about it (yet?) but it's nice to see some genre tv again.
