03:25 pm: The Day of Laundry and TV
Yes, washing and changing sheets as usual, re-ripping some of the CDs, and I think I'll need a nap. I had to lie down a couple times last night because I'd sat up straight too long yesterday and today I'd like to just have the nap first.

I've had three watchings of The Listener, which I won't be watching again. I can't sustain disbelief. Also three watchings of Royal Pains, which I will be watching again because it has good plots and actors. I watched the premiere of HawtoRNe, a nurse-centered hospital drama, and it reminded me too much of the later, worse episodes of Strong Medicine. It gets another try, though.

Tonight NBC starts their Merlin series, which is a British import, and I figure I'll tape that and see if I like it. Also tonight, two of our PBS stations are showing a new Poirot mystery, so more taping, since I'll be watching L&O: CI and In Plain Sight.

The last two paragraphs of this entry could be in my journal word for word except, I only gave Listener 1 and a half episodes. :)

I kept thinking there must be more to The Listener, but there really isn't.

Merlin was pretty good, probably because it's a British import. It's not following any existing settings and plots that I know and the characters mostly have verve. I probably won't watch the Poirot tape until later this week. I have to be at a medical test at 7:45am Wednesday and since I usually turn the light out and go to sleep at 3am, I'm going to try to get to sleep earlier and get up earlier tonight and tomorrow. This usually doesn't work, but I'll try.

thanks for the report. i have a lot of tivo backup at the moment so probably these will wait. i just love the tv junk food like Burn Notice and Royal Pain and In Plain Sight will come first - oh and The Closer and Leverage will be back soon!

We've been recording the international crime shows on PBS for a while now. Love the German and Swedish ones. The others - not so much. PBS also has the British version of Wallander (Swedish) with Kenneth Branagh who plays an excellent Swede.
The only problem is trying to remember to set up to record.

I watch/tape all the new mysteries on PBS, but I don't usually keep the tapes. I just record over them.
