I like looking at the ads in the really old National Geographic magazines. There is an ad on one of them for telephones – before they were mainstream in everyone’s homes.
Sahara – Michael Palin
Funnily enough I like reading his travel stories but I find his diaries very boring.
Unladylike – Cristen Conger and
This is a great book full of great ideas
The Annotated Pride and
Prejudice – Jane Austen
I love this story so much. I’ve always loved it and I enjoyed reading it again. It was good to have the annotated version because it let me understand a few things that I hadn’t before. For example, I always thought that traveling by post was related to the mail, but in fact it is about traveling with hired horses that change at “posts”. I also didn’t realise the significance of Darcy calling her “Elizabeth” in their walk together – because Darcy is so formal and it was not a done thing at the time between people who were not intimate. I cannot recommend the novel enough, and I really enjoyed the annotated version.
NCIS Los Angeles
8×21 Battle Scars – Hetty’s friends are awesome. I especially love AJ Chegwidden and I wish he was permanent.
8×22 Golden Days – More of Hetty’s friends and I loved the toast to Owen at the end.
8×23 Uncaged – Could tell they were going to kill off Michelle as soon as she appeared in the episode. Haven’t seen so much of her since she went up against Sidorov
8×24 Unleashed – more badass Nell! And the thumbs up and the grin – so glad that went into the Season 9 credits
9×1 Party Crashers – Hate Mosley. Sort of indifferent to Harley – I can’t work out what her job is apart from being a PA for Mosley? Also so glad they’re letting Linda Hunt flex her acting muscle
9×2 Se Murio El Payaso – LOVE that Jeff Kober is playing the imprisoned CIA officer in Vietnam, especially after watching him as an American sergeant fighting during the Vietnam War in China Beach
1×11 Black Jesus: The Book of Crucifixion – loved watching Thunder and Hologram!Black Lightning getting applause as they ran down the road. I feel that was really awesome for the people of Freeland to experience.
5×13 Spectre of the Gun – Liked getting the backstory to Rene’s life.
Rizzoli and Isles:
7×7 Dead Weight – Really liked this episode. I even liked the FBI guy that asked Jane to come to give the talk to Quantico
2×4 She Ain’t Right – No joke she ain’t right. And now Wynonna ain’t right. This should be interesting.
Legends of Tomorrow
2×12 Camelot/3000 – Sara Lance, flirting her way through history.
Inspector Soneri Fog and Crimes 2:
3×11 The Good Soldier
3×12 The Wild Hunt
3×14 Mommy Dearest – I cannot begin to say on how many levels I disagreed with the characters to not tell Sergeant Wu about the Wesen. The man has checked himself into a mental health ward – that’s EXACTLY the time to tell him about Wesen and that he isn’t crazy.
3×15 Once We Were Gods
3×16 The Show Must Go On
