Don't Mess with Meatball

Meatball doing his best pirate impression.

Every morning I take Meatball out to our vegetable garden. He likes to explore and chew bits of long grass. It's a good outdoor spot for him because it's fenced; I worry without some kind of boundary he'll run off after a chipmunk and get lost (or worse).

But today, there was a rabbit in the garden--almost full grown--and he went for it. (He was not pleased with me when I hauled him back inside.)

I know some cats are more confrontational than others, but is it common for cats to chase animals as big as they are? Does your cat do this?

Honey and the Hatchet

You've found the body of a serial killer's latest target. A friendly neighborhood Old Man. You're more honest than most of the kids that have run through the CBI offices. And you're a fortune teller. Alright, so Jane's found the honey pot in you. Now, where's the hatchet? ( Updates on Saturday )

I'm not admitting reffreshing the Doctor Who tag on Twitter every few minutes...  
It's kinda weird because this the first time that they're announcing a new Doctor and I'm actually interested about who's cast instead of being paralysed with not caring. Tennant was announced before I'd even seen the show, Smith was announced when I had been stuck somewhere around mid season 2 for almost three years, and Capaldi was announced when I had quit watching the show again because of the boringness of Eleven/Clara era.

(this is also the first time I'm actually sad to see the current Doctor go, instead of thinking "Maybe I'll like the next one better")

Also, if in 2013 my reaction was "Was it a woman? No? Okay then. " now it's "Please be a woman, please be a woman, please be a woman"

I'm not saying that I'll automatically like the next Doctor if it's a woman, but the odds are much better considering that Doctor Who is the only current show with a male lead that I even watch anymore. But storywise as well, I think it would be quite an anticlimax if Twelve went through all the trouble of fighting the regeneration only to end up looking like Kris Marshall. What a tragic ending that would be.

(For the record, I really liked Kris Marshal in My Life in Film and My Family, but I just think he'd be such a boring choice for the Doctor)

eta: And it's Jodie Whitaker. I kinda suspected it might be her ever since I heard that she'd suddenly risen in the betting lists this week - the same happened with Capaldi as well. Not my first choice, but I approve. Now, hopefully the new Doctor's personalilty will be more like Nine or Twelve than Ten or Eleven to avoid making the Doctor into a Manic Pixie Dreamgirl. And please let her have clothes that you could actually fight daleks in.

Rewatching Doctor Who: series 1  
So I decided to rewatch the entirety of new!Who because I've been meaning to do it for a couple of years now, and also because it might be interesting to rewatch the show now that I like the Doctor (well, one incarnation of him at least), and perhaps will actually pay attention to what he is doing this time around.

(clearly I'm not the only one rewatching the show because the library has 3-4 copies of each season and they're all constantly on loan - it took me three weeks to get the 2009 specials after I finished S4)

I don't think I've actually seen most of series 1 since 2006 (except for "Empty Child"/"The Doctor Dances", which I've seen at least a dozen times). Which is probably why my memories of it were, ahem, much better than the series turned out to be while rewatching. Because boy have some parts of it aged badly...

Read more... )

In all, I think the first series has more of a children's show feel to it than the later series, in both good and bad. It gives me really strong Eerie Indiana/Around the Twist vibes (especially "Rose"), which makes me suspect that I would have loved DW had I seen it as a kid.

I did not like Nine nearly as much as I remembered liking him, though (and I didn't remember liking him that much in the first place). I think Christopher Eccleston's performance really suffers from the writing and direction. He's okay in the dramatic scenes, but the comedy just doesn't work at all, because not only is it often the wrong kind of comedy for his acting style, the way that the comedic scenes were often set up and edited often completely undermined the jokes. I guess there was some miscommunication about the tone of the show (on top of all the other behind the scenes issues), since I read an interview a while ago where Eccleston said that if he'd do the show now, he'd play the comedy completely differently. Also, the elements that work best with Nine are mainly things that he shares with Twelve, which makes me wonder if Nine would have worked better if he'd had the stories and direction of Twelve era.

Let's put the 'mental' back into The Mentalist... Let's go back to a time when cases were crazy, the old CBI crew were still together and Red John was mostly out of the picture. Each chapter will be a stand-alone case that our CBI team will endeavour to solve with the 'help' of their unhinged consultant. "C'mon, It'll be fun. Let's see what kind of trouble we can make..."

This episode takes a somewhat inebriated CBI team to a murder in a nightclub. Can Lisbon and Jane find the killer before Man Handled, the all male striptease review have to cancel their performance?
