Long working days have curtailed my blogging activity somewhat over the last couple of weeks. Barely managing my own modest 'one a week' target. I can hardly manage to keep abreast of reading my ten regular blogs. Throwing in the occasional comment can sometimes leave me exhausted.
Relaxation is currently taking the form of watching The West Wing (I know I know, where have I been). Until August this year I had never seen an episode. In fact pre-2007 I had been taking an extended break of some years from most scheduled TV. That means that this year alone, I have had the pleasure of watching (for the first time) every single episode of The Sopranos (RIP *sobs*). The first two seasons of The Wire (joy from start to finish) The one and only season of Kidnapped (cancelled alas). I have yet to watch an episode of Deadwood, Six Feet Under and new Battlestar Galactica. Each, I understand, has it's own sort of brilliance.
The West Wing is taking some beating in the VS attention stakes though. I'm halfway through the second season DVD's, and will try and watch them in batches of two or three every other night. Each episode just crackles along and is usually funny, moving, intelligient and scary. Often all at the same time. Sorry, but Doctor Who and Life on Mars just can't compete in this league. . In a couple of months time I'll have reached the end, but in the meantime I have five and a half seasons to get through. So.. erm.. Bye!
