I’ve been MIA recently – and I’ve read only about 100 pages in a week – because I’m indulging my new TV obsession: House. I don’t like medical shows (yeah, Grey’s Anatomy is not a medical show it’s a downright soap) or procedurals (with the exception of Castle, but only because Nathan Filion is so damn charming) but I love House. I’m at season 3 currently, the cases are starting to get somewhat less exciting, but I just can’t get enough of the crazy doctor.
And because Hugh Laurie is just that good, I watched a couple of sketches from A bit of Fry & Laurie – very python-like (or is it pythonesque?), complete with Footlights roots – and I plan to watch the whole series (plus Jeeves & Wooster). I usually take the wrong way towards discovering great stuff like this – like…say…through a US tv show – but at least I eventually get to them 😀
I’ve also seen a bunch of movies, and I’ll probably write a bit about them tomorrow….but now I have to get back to the Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital 😉
