I am, as they say, giddy with excitement. I'm happy, pleased, and greatly amused. I know you're dying to find out why, so I'm going to tell you.
The reason for this happiness is multi-fold (and none of those folds involve the weekend being upon us). First, my Harper's Island screener arrived today. I know, I know, I haven't seen the show, I've done little more than read about it for months on end and, more recently, watched CBS promos. Even so, it's a show I've been greatly anticipating since I first heard about it, and to finally have the pilot in my grubby little hands amuses me. Naturally, there is a chance that I will be let down by what I watch, but I'm looking at the positive side of things today – there's also a chance I'll be overjoyed. Only time will tell, and don't worry, when I know how I feel about it, you'll know how I feel about it.
Just FYI, the Harper's Globe website is live and there are apparently going to be webisodes there starting on March 18. There are apparently a bunch of "hidden" websites out there too. That sort of thing is fun, as long as the info contained on the various web portals doesn't overshadow the show itself. I don't want to have to go to the internet to solve the puzzle, it's fine for the internet to make it easier, but it shouldn't be required.
Next up – as it's Friday, it's a Battlestar Galactica day. Including tonight there are only two episodes left. That's not a lot, and the producers have a huge amount of work ahead of them if they're going to give some semblance of a resolution. I'm not looking for everything to be all nice and pat, I'm just looking to feel satisfied with the resolution, even if my satisfaction comes via the form of some sort of cliffhanger. It's okay if they open a whole new can of worms provided the one we currently have is pretty much over.
