A place for Kay to experiment with being a blogger. (Designed for 800x600 resolution at this point... mostly because I haven't found a way to make a background
that also looks good

Watched Golden Bowl, and this is one flick where I think you almost need the longwinded description to know what the flick is about.

Without A Trace
I liked last nights episode, in part because they acknowledged that they guy may have slipped out on his life -- with reason, and that they couldn't force a man to be the husband his wife wanted him to be, and the businessman his father-in-law wanted him to be. The ending was beautiful in that they got a resolution to the case that satisfied the loved ones, and yet they were convinced there may well have been a happy ending in there somewhere.

Robbery Homicide Division
I tape lots of shows, and catch up on them, minus the commercials, as I have a chance. Right now I've got Robbery Homicide Division from CBS running.
As people may have noticed between this blog and my blog at PopArtsPlace.com I'm hesitant to declare a show out and out bad so early in the season, and so you'll see I frequently say this show isn't bad... but... in this case the show isn't bad at all, it is just very dark and down, darker and further down than I tend to like.
I'm not sure I'll tune in to this one again because of it -- though I may just let the VCR catch two hours for the price of one as I do LOVE Hack (starring Proof of Life's David Morse) and will be taping it every week of its 22 eps this season. (Yes, Hack got picked up for the full season, and I dare say with good reason.)

I've been watching shows I taped in the early weeks of the season while I was trying to decide what to watch on what nights -- right now I still have Still Standing on CBS showing during Evewood, but Everwood (featuring Deep End of the Ocean's Treat Williams) is a full hour and starts first, so I'm watching Everwood off the air, and taping Still Standing.
Watched two eps of Still Standing (with A Knight's Tale's Mark Addy) today and can understand why the show has been picked up for a full 22 epsidoes. It is a fun comedy about parents who are such kids that it is hard to believe they are parents, and yet they are doing a decent job of it. A well written fun show -- with characters that seem to have actually been thought out!

American Dreams is full of heartache, and yet it is a joy to watch. Somehow taking a moment out to remember the problems of the 60s -- a boy not asking you out, a girl going to a different college than her boyfriend, a family trying to figure out how to have a meal without killing one another.
The simple joys and pains of life come alive each week -- and make me glad I tune in.
