Telly (no spoilage), Reading
telly:
  • Torchwood 2x6 "Reset": OMG, squee, huh, wow, OMG. Is that spoiler-free enough? Poor Tosh...
  • Torchwood 2x5 "Adam": Well played, deeply creepy, then merely terrifying ... excellent, hurtful
  • Lost 4x "the Economist": Ah, Lost vol 4 continues to amuse in small and larger ways. The plotting and the story conceit are (one and the same and) marvelous. i actually watched this on the telly on TiVo which is the first time I've done that .. well ever for Lost I think...
  • Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo: Chapter (disc) 2: Acts 5-8 of this retelling of one of my most beloved novels is ... delicious. It's true to the themes and details of the novel (in so far as my memory holds) and the new touches in the science fiction setting are interesting, giving the title character a much greater and more sinister power than he actually has (young Edouard runs away from him shouting "blue-faced vampire!" which he does quite resemble..). The character designs had been quite amazing and pleasing in the first Chapter ... and then there's is the gown Haidee wears to the opera ... magnificent and beautifully animated. (Netflix, but I may have to buy it to make all of you watch it ;)  Flash site at http://montecristodvd.com/ plays a trailer on load and has a few things to see.
reading:
  • Feynman Vol I : I stopped short of beginning the chapter on Time (5?) but read through his descriptions of imaginary frictionless machines with only a little confusion. Perhaps it would be an easier sell to a student who had never read of friction or entropy? In any case his explanation of energy conservation made sense. Also, so many particies...
  • Mabinogion Tetralogy: before finally sleeping Thursday, Branwen was wed and back with her husband. (that's about two chapters into the second Branch). I've also got links into translations and probably the original text ... not that I can pronounce much less read any Welsh (Cymmru ?)

Current Location: bedroom (now with light)

Let me see

Nope, that was 2x3 "To the Last Man", see here? :
Although that was another ep where Tosh gets kicked around.. not that the others don't take a beating in other episodes, sheesh.

I watched Reset and Adam out of order because of how the torrents went. Watching Adam after reset makes it roughly 5x as creepy.

Also: Adam: Re: the last few minutes in the board room, DUH. And the second to last scene: Jack is a real idiot sometimes.

Reset: OMG FINALLY!!!! *cough* I'll let the reader decide which event that finally applies to.

I hope that's spoiler free enough.
