TV viewing for me since
I stumbled upon Woman's Murder Club just before its season started and love it. It's got Angie Harmon in it, so that's a big plus, but the rest of the cast interact well, it's got interesting plots, that are very funny at times and it's based in San Francisco. So far they've done 10 episodes (out of a planned season of 13), but the writers strike has forced it off the air at the moment. Lynea did find the first four James Patterson Murder Club books at the local library book sale of Friday night, so I know what I'll be reading soon.
The other "new" one I'm going to try is Dexter. Even though it was first broadcast on Showtime (which we don't get), it's going to be aired on CBS next month (again, due to the writer's strike). I hope they don't butcher it too much.
Onto the film. About a week ago, we all watched The Simpsons Movie. As Homer says, why go to a theater to watch this when you could be watching in on your TV at home? So true. So that's what we did. After watching SpongeBob fail to make a good transition to the big screen, I was wondering how well this one would do. I don't know, but watching it on TV feels like a really good long single episode.
But here's the difference. The material is new. The jokes are almost continuous. There is a good plot. They don't try to show every character that ever appeared in the TV shows, in the film. Highly recommended.
