  • What on earth possessed someone to write the 3rd mini-series in the Anne of Green Gables series? It's not based on any books, and while I could see potential, the whole thing boiled down to a hot mess. And let's not even talk about some of the dialog. Oy. Just...WHY? It's not like they were out of material from the books.

  • I have much of DW's S5 coming on Netflix now, so I can pick up with episode 3 and [livejournal.com profile] dwrewatch. I still can't quite get excited about it though. It's not as if I'm loathing the thought of it, more that I just can't get in the mood. I wandered off after ep 2 last year, but I'll give it another shot.

  • The new Peter Wimsey/Harriet Vane book is finally coming out in the US tomorrow! *luffs Harriet and Peter* I've ordered it from Amazon, so I probably won't have it until next week though.

  • I tried out two book series recently, both of which I'm ditching after the first books. The first is the Aunt Dimity series. It was okay. I wasn't all that into the supernatural angle though. Meh. The second was the Hannah Swensen mysteries (the cookie/dessert mysteries), which I didn't like at all. I found most the characters really off-putting. And a love triangle was introduced that was already mildly annoying in the first book, but after a bit of snooping I learned the love triangle is still going on 14 books later.

    UGH. Even if I liked the characters, I'll run screaming from any perpetual UST. It's why I haven't been able to pick up Chuck again. I know they've resolved the relationship stuff, but they annoyed me way too much getting there.
