Oooh, interesting…

Seen the new ‘Max Payne’ trailer? Want to see that 13th November, love me some valkyries and the film looks fab. And so does the trailer for ‘Burn After Reading’. Except I can’t seem to find a release date for Hong Kong yet. Bastards. Neither can I find owt about when ‘How To Lose Friends And Alienate People’ is coming to our shores. It’s just not fair.

Watched episode 4.4 of ‘Supernatural’ Friday night, and thank you Dean Winchester for finally giving Sam what for! I’ve been hoping someone would inflict shakabuku * on him since the end of episode one, so now I’m feeling much more satisfied. Other than that, it was a slam-bam-thank-you-Sam episode, and I have to say, excellent. While I’m still staggered by the genius of the first episode, and numbers two and three were definitely great, this one is winning cos of it’s stand-alone story. No, we don’t need the new guest stars popping up in every single episode, and no, we don’t need the current story arc rammed down our throats during every other scene. This was a nice breather - and judging by the trailer over on The CW site, it looks like next week’s is going to be the ‘Bad Day At Black Rock’ or ‘Hollywood Babylon’ of season 4. As it’s also purported to be penned by Ben Edlund, who gave us the aforementioned golden oldies, and God of Screenwriting, and man who invented ‘The Tick’, can’t wait for that, either.

Let’s see, what else… Er… oh yes, had my personal training as planned. And confirmed our joint suspicion that I am indeed the unfittest of the unfit, and am going to struggle for the first month. But that’s ok - that’s what it’s all about, right? If it were easy, we wouldn’t want it, as the phrase goes. And anyway, I have a huge incentive… end of March next year is the ‘Supernatural’ con for which we have tickets. Can we wait? Can we bloody hell as like.

Think that’s it. Have to get ready for a battle to the death tonight. Well, a pub quiz, actually.


* Shakabuku: A swift, spiritual kick to the head that alters your reality forever. Thank you, Minnie Driver and ‘Grosse Pointe Blank’.
