kawehilani: My absolutely favourite SW icon (Default)
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 :)

[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.

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...
