We’ve been rewatching “Babylon 5” for the past few weeks. It’s the first time we’ve watched it on our big screen, high-def television and even with its sometimes really low resolution (you can always tell when an effect shot is coming up) we can see things we’ve never noticed before. The attention to detail on that show was pretty amazing.
I’m reading a few different things. I’m finally making headway on Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne. I struggled with it for a while because a) the protagonist was a whiny-baby who never ceased to complain about his lot in life and b) Verne gives several geology lessons in the book, especially in the beginning. But, that has passed. The main character has finally (somewhat) gotten into the spirit of the adventure and now we’re on to paleontology lessons, which I find more interesting.
I’m also reading I Will Teach You to Be Rich by Ramit Sethi of I Will Teach You To Be Rich.com. Despite his non-sympathy with introverted people it’s a very good book. It’s even an interesting read. Financial books are normally very dry and dull but this one is not.
Last night we picked up a new “Doctor Who” story – The Face of Evil. it’s Leela’s first appearance and so far it’s very good. It really grabs your interest from the start and keeps moving right along.
