Spent the night on an overnight train from St Petersburg to Moscow. No sleep, of course, but I finally caught up on Pan Am, watched pilot episode of Touch, another episode of Poirot, and new episodes of Law and Order: UK and Alcatraz. I also finished first season of Star Wars The Clone Wars - despite my strong dislike for the prequels, I enjoy the cartoon series immensely. And after all, of the three major reasons I don't like the prequels, one reason is completely absent from the cartoon, the second hasn't showed yet (and there's a good chance it won't show at all), and the third can be treated as a genre feature :)

I was quite surprised to discover that it was colder in Moscow than in St Petersburg - it's normally the other way round, as St Petersburg is located farther to the north.

Smiley, my Yorkshire terrier, was, as usual, besides himself with joy when I arrived :) I slept for several hours with him on guard, woke up around 8.30 p.m., helped my sister with her English exercise (she's obviously progressing!), ate grilled fish, and now I'm going to watch yesterday's episodes of my shows (including Ringer - oh, do I miss Ringer!), with Smiley sitting in my lap :)

Winter has come! Snow and frost (-15 to -20 Celsius), at last. Lucky me, working from home and not having to go out in the cold twice a day :)

Watched new episodes of White Collar, Southland, and Royal Pains. White Collar was the best, as usual - I really enjoyed Read more... ) And as for Royal Pains, I really miss Boris - he was my favourite character during the previous seasons. I hope Campbell Scott didn't just quit the show!

Found a new good TV show: Bomb Girls, a six-part Canadian mini-series about girls working at a munitions factory during World War II. It's not unlike the British Land Girls, but it's far better and more gripping. I definitely recommend it to anyone interested in WWII.

I also decided that my life has become a little boring, so tomorrow evening I'm going to register as a observer for the upcoming presidential elections. What's even more exciting, there's chance I'll be not merely an observer, but a member of a district election commission. Wish me luck :)

[personal profile] themadmermaid has mentioned Alcatraz in one of her posts, and I added it to my to-watch list and then downloaded the first two episodes without really planning to watch the series anytime soon.

But... I've just watched the pilot and I'm already watching the second episode and looking forward to watching the next one tomorrow! I can't say the show is brilliant (not quite my genre, actually), but it's gripping enough, and I like the characters. One thing that bothered me in the first episode, though, is that Read more... )

Oh, and it's nice to see, once in a while, a show set in a city different from New York and Los Angeles :) (IMDb says it was filmed in Vancouver, for the most part. All the same, a nice change of scenery.)

I also noticed that the show shares the same producer with Person of Interest - another show I'm enjoying these days.

Spent almost the whole day sleeping, fighting a headache, and catching up on TV shows.

And I'm still listening to John Williams' score for Star Wars. Since I disliked the prequel trilogy completely and watched it for the second and last time in April 2007 (isn't Livejournal great? Of course, I know the exact month and year only because I recorded it there!), I only listened to the music from the movies once or twice, and it was quite some time ago, too, so I've completely forgotten just how awesome Duel of the Fates was. It's easily the best composition from the prequels - I almost wanted to re-watch them. But instead, I'm looking forward to watching A New Hope with a friend tomorrow evening :)

Athena
Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me
Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain't comin' back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me
There's no place I can be
Since I found Serenity
But you can't take the sky from me...
