No more “Game of Thrones” until next year. People, do you realize what this means? It means that self has to rehash all the old episodes, everything from Season 2 episode 1 all the way to Season 3 episode 10, minus Season 3 episode 9 because she can never ever watch that wedding/massacre without having nightmares.
The Man, however, knows just how to distract her, because yesterday he casually switched channels to AMC, which was showing something called “The Killing.”
After watching for a few minutes, self realized that the Death Row inmate being hustled to the showers, the one who adroitly slips a razor blade from a bar of soap into his mouth, was none other than Peter Sarsgaard. Hoooly Hotness! (How does one slip a razor blade into a bar of soap? Self has not a clue. Perhaps more to the point: Who put it there?)
Then self determined that the female detective with the unsmiling demeanor and the red mane of hair (played by Mireille Enos) was an interesting character.
Self let her fingers do the walking on her computer and found that “The Killing” was about to be canceled. Ratings for the season premiere were bad.
Tonight, The Man found her yet another episode and self sat there, spellbound: Watch Peter Sarsgaard engage another Death Row inmate in conversation! Watch him throw out sardonic put-downs to the prison guards! Watch him lift his shirt to show New Best Friend (fellow inmate) various scars on his torso! Watch him be all rebellious by spitting antibiotic pills straight into the face of a prison guard! Watch him recline on his prison bed, nonchalantly reading a book!
There was also a crackling good scene set in the home of one of the prison guards, involving a wife who knows no boundaries.
There were also a number of moody shots of a rainy Seattle. Did dear blog readers know that a large tribe of street children haunt the streets of Seattle? And that these youngsters are so vulnerable that they repeatedly end up getting into extremely dangerous situations?
Holy Grrrreat Show!
Tonight, self also decided to google “Justified” Season 5 and discovered that the new season is scheduled to start in January.
Whereupon she began counting the number of months between now (June 2013) and the “Justified” Season 5 premiere in January 2014, and came up with seven. Which seems like a very, very long time to be waiting.
Maybe she can fill that time with productive reading? Her reading pace is so slow this year! Today she only managed to read a further 20 pages into Sister Carrie.
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
