Have you been following the story surrounding Carly?

Not at all.

I finished BABES IN ARMS and saw for the first time the "My Day" sequence in the finale which I had only previously seen stills of. The sequence is in very rough shapes with scratches and debris galore (and blown up from a 16mm print), but it's there and now restored to the film.

Next I watched THE HOAX. Very intriguing to see how Clifford Irving almost pulled off the Howard Hughes bio hoax. Nice performances from a really first rate cast - Richard Gere, Alfred Molina, Marcia Gay Harden, Stanley Tucci, Zeljko Ivanek and an excellent production. A little artsy in some parts (counter to the structure of the rest of the piece), but it was the right length so it didn't wear out its welcome.

The DVD transfer is bothersome, however. Only average sharpness, contrast bumped up too much so they could match vintage footage, so the color looked plugged up.

Haven't explored the bonus features yet. Will do them tomorrow.

PUSHING DAISIES. Well, again a pleasant hour, but it's not grabbing me.

I don't like the character Chuck very much. I don't like the constant Jim Dale narration. Just too precious and I get tired of it before the end of the show.

I did like Kristin's song. She handled the transitions between chest and head voice beautifully.

This was the best PRIVATE PRACTICE episode I've seen. I found all of the cases interesting. I just wish the doctors/cast weren't all so damaged. Other than Taye Diggs (and the receptionist), not one of these people is on firm emotional ground, and this constant regret over lost love or lack of love is going to run pretty thin if that's going to be the focus of every single episode.

DIRTY SEXY MONEY had an OK episode, too. Again, I think for the show to continue to get my attention, we're going to need to see some more colors to their emotional make-ups. We're only three episodes into the season, and already I'm getting tired of the repetition of their one-note personalities week after week.

I did see the eppie last week and I felt that some of the characters seemed a bit flat with very little done to develop differents facets of their personalities .. I agree that they do need some 'color' in the sense of stronger personalities.

I have a bit of writing to do, so I'll tend to that now and then head down for bed.

Good night.

I hope Donny Osmond is one of them.  Dear Reader Laura really wants to attend that fundraiser.

I am forever hopeful, DR TCB.

Had a full afternoon of viewing.

I began with Monday night's CSI: MIAMI. The jury is still out about my continuing with the show. The character I want to rejoin the staff is still being kept at arm's length (absurdly).

So, I guess I'm not the only one with the hots for  who appreciates the acting skills of Jonathan Togo.

I, too, saw "Pusing Daisies".  Enjoyed it VERY much.

Earlier this evening, I watched "Journeyman".  Really fine episode, IMO, but I'm wondering if it's placement right after "Heroes" (another Sci-fantasy) does it any favors.  It's a wholly different kind of show and "Heroes" takes the viewer down a somewhat breathless path while "Journeyman" is a but more understated and deliberately paced.

Because I'm essentially pooped and ready for bed, I am recording "Life" which I will devour tomorrow evening after work.

It's a pain to have the new tv season coincide with a vacation.  I have so many shows to watch.  Forgettabout any new shows, er at least for a month or so.

I'm back from Montreal.  I love my dear family, but I just can't get the hang of poutine -- french fries & a mild cheese, then smothered with a chicken style gravy.

I want to do an all-white production of Porgy and Bess.  I mean, if Audra can do 100 In The Shade and Carousel, then I don't see why colorblind casting can't work both ways.

As Porgy: Hugh Jackman
As Bess: Jennifer Garner
As Sportin' Life: Joel Grey
As Crown: Billy Bob Thornton
