of course, this captures the one reason I might've wanted to watch the Emmy's (besides Sr. Harris himself)...

I have no idea why. There was nothing original in the first series. Though I did know friends who made good costumes.


Here’s the SciFi Wire page:

Wow. I just watched this week's Bones.  I do in general love the show, and still I was completley surprised. This episode focused on a murdered woman pastor... who turned out to have been born male; toss in fundamentalist money mongering for full effect. :-) And the whole thing was really well handled... from the confusion on pronouns, to the wonderful clear desire of the main characters to be really respectful of the woman who died, to a cool little scene with the shrink throwing out even the idea that 'trans' could be spiritual. As well as a nice subplot with the pastor's son.

And then as the capper, the music at the end was by, I am sure, Antony. This episode meant something to someone there... someone connected enough to know of the singer. Damn. Hats off all around.

Bet you missed it.

Most likely you never heard of it.

Masters of Science Fiction is/was a new show on ABC, featuring episodes based on fiction by science fiction authors (gasp!). Originally ABC commissioned 6 episodes. Then they cut it down to 4; so it went from a 'series' to a 'special.' It's airing on Saturday nights at 10pm in August. Can we say stillborn?

And yet... set your VCR/DDR/TIVO up if you haven't already! I caught "A Clean Escape," the first episode (thank you, Comcast DDR), and it was hella impressive.

The production values were high, the acting was superb (Mark Rydell's expansive confidence,  Judy Davis' white-faced rage and thoughtfulness). The story unfolded very nicely - though I do have a couple of quibbles with the wrap-up. Still, this is a show not to miss.

And good luck at not missing it.

to the IMsL crud. Actually, with the help of Airborne early on, I seem to be moving through it pretty quickly. Oooky chest today. ah well. Such is often the result of a con, however said con is defined. :-)

Got a lot of stuff done at home over the weekend, since I was home a lot of the weekend (see above note). Sadly, the Sharks weren't playing! They are tonight.

Unexpectedly, there were two episodes of *Dresden*. The finale was pretty good. I like that the show does little unexpected things pretty regularly. Saw most of the first episode of *Drive*. Nathan Fillion being very wound up. The teen daughter doesn't look so teen to me. ;-) I have the second recorded, and the next is tonight. I really enjoyed Tim Minear at Worldcon this year, and have always liked his quirky tv work. Here's hoping this one is good. It's certainly intriguing. Being Fox, it will likely be canceled in three weeks, but who knows. ;-)

Finished the first Nevada Barr Anna Pigeon mystery novel. It was good. There are lots more to read. Of course, I need to get Hugo reading underway.
