New Tilley Hat

Media Watch

Quick take on The Dark Knight:
Not for the faint of heart.

You don't need to stay, there's nothing after the credits.
The Sci-Fi Channel is running Joan of Arcadia starting last week. The first season was great. I'm hoping it will cut the dystopian edge off my mood from Batman. If you've never seen the show, watch the listings. The two best (imrho) are where G_d asks her to join the cheerleading squad, and for her to hold a yard sale. Some of the best tv ever. It was so good, they felt compelled to change it in the second season, ruining it and driving it to cancellation.

Starting this week are new episodes of Monk and Psych. Psych is fun but fluff; Monk varies considerably but is always well done and occasionally brilliant.
