Something else I forgot

Monday, November 19th, 2007

I like this show because it really deals with dealing with the past. Chuck, for much of the first 9 episodes, is immobilized by his past, like so many of us. But he really seems to be working through it and dealing with it. Just kind of ...

Chuck versus the Truth – Episode 108

Sunday, November 18th, 2007

OK, first of all, I really like Chuck.  It is entertaining, kind of funny, and has some heartwarming aspects.  So first I want to give some critical thoughts on the show in general. The Good Loyalty - Chuck, Casy, and Sarah are loyal to each other. Unconditional love - Chuck and Ellie demonstrate ...

Four Months Ago – episode 208

Sunday, November 18th, 2007

OK, I rather liked this episode.  I do think it would have been better for DL to have died at Kirby Plaza if they just wanted to get rid of him.   His  death, while it was nice that he died trying to protect Nikki, seemed kind of  pointless.  But, anyway, ...

My favorite TV shows

Friday, November 16th, 2007

Well, I thought it would be good to comment on some of my favorite TV shows. There is no way I will have time to comment on all of them, so I figure I will comment on the ones that strike my fancy, and then at the end of ...

Sandworms of Dune, pages up to page 132. By Kevin Anderson and Brian Herbert

Wednesday, November 14th, 2007

Well, I have to turn the book into the library tomorrow, so might as well comment on what I have read.  That is what I get for picking up 2 books from the library - could not finish both of them:-).  Anyway, like the other Dune books to read.  Very ...

Worldbinder by David Farland

Wednesday, November 14th, 2007

OK, just finished the 6th book in the Runelords series. As with the prior novels, it was quite enjoyable. I doubt it will ever be a bestseller, but it had some good points that I appreciated. The good: A common theme is love and loyalty. No extra marital relationships treated ...

The Unit – Season 1

Saturday, November 3rd, 2007

OK, it has been a month or 2 since I saw these DVDs, but I did want to comment on it a little.  First of all, I really enjoy this show, so I enjoyed this first season.  I really like the characters and seeing some of them grow.  I really ...

The Machine Crusade, by Brian Herbert and Kevin J Anderson

Saturday, November 3rd, 2007

Well, I thought it was interesting.  Much of the same things can be said about this book that I said about the other Dune books.   There is a lot of playing on emotions through the avenue of religion in these books.  There is no distinct concept of a creator.  I ...
