I decided to take a personal day today, which, yay me, but I feel out of sorts today. And contributing to that is the fact that yesterday being the "last day" of my week, I was quite miffed this morning to discover that Medium hadn't recorded. It took me a minute or two to figure out why. Oh, and Dollhouse, which I am recording but I haven't even watched ep 2.1 yet. The only thing about the show that interested me last season was the mystery of whomever was behind the Dollhouse and where the show was going with it. And then I went ahead this summer and rented Epitaph 1 and got most of those answers so now I'm like..."Ho hum. Watch Eliza be all butt-kicking and no personality, or watch HGTV?"

Speaking of HGTV, I stumbled upon a cool new "reality" show this week about a group of furniture restoration guys who take on people's "impossible projects" out of their business...in Phoenix! It was quite interesting watching them restore two old vintage pieces with all sorts of techniques and tricks.

Oh, god, I'm a home improvement geek.

Dollhouse played out better on DVD for me than on TV. The plot movement was too glacial in real time. I'll wait till the next DVD to watch it again.

Hope you feel better soon. With cooler weather and later sunrise I've been sleeping later most days.

I've been sleeping crappy the past couple days, but I doubt it's related to it getting lighter later, if anything, that should help me sleep in. I tend to get up earlier in the summer, and later in the winter.

I think I just have a lot going on that keeps me wired up at night.

There are a lot of shows that play better on DVD, I've noticed. The especially complicated ones are like that, where you just forget too many details from week to week and have a hard time following it without watching it ten times in the intervening days, which I was always willing to do with, say, BtVS and Angel.

Well, Kevin Reilly did vow to leave Joss alone this season, and admit that the "stand alone" episodes did not make the show more accessible, but rather hurt the story. So it should move much faster this year.

That said, I've yet to find a show that doesn't play out better on dvd, and if not for fear of online spoilers and a sense of obligation to support good shows, I'd watch everything that way.

I'd be happy if the show actually surprised me in the end, but I don't think Joss is going to veer from his grand vision, much of which has now already been revealed to us.

Well, that's the thing about geeks, isn't it? Whether it's Buffy or home improvement, we never get into anything half-assed.
