Week Four of Imagineer Quest 2007. Have I heard anything yet? Nope. But, not to worry, I’m not losing hope. These things take time. If you want something hard enough, you have to keep working at it, and I’m going to keep working at this. Working, and wishing on a star. Because, this year Disney says that they’re making a million dreams come true, and being an Imagineer is my magical dream.

Nature - “The Venom Cure”. I’m told that Gila monsters have toxic saliva. If that’s not a reason to watch this show, I don’t know what is. Gila monsters have toxic saliva. Say it with me one time: “Gila monsters have toxic saliva.” Awesome.
9:00 - 10:30PM
Mystery! Foyle’s War, Series IV. Ah, that popular World War II whodunit is back, still starring Michael Kitchen as our titular hero. He’s fighting his own battle against murder, mystery, and betrayal on the south coast of England.
10:30 - 11:00PM
Encore! With James Conlon - “Technique or Spirit?” Or, up or down? Left or right? Right or wrong? Wrong or strong? Strong or long? Long or short? Short or squat? Squat or dumpy? Dumpy or Dopey? Dopey or Doc? Doc or Bashful? Bashful or Sneezy? Sneezy or Sleepy? Sleepy or Grumpy? Grumpy or Happy? So many questions, so little time, and only one Twelfth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition.

Antiques Roadshow - “Reno (Hour One)”. I’m not going to go out and say openly that Reno has nothing of value in it, but, if the shoe fits. Maybe that’s what they have — old shoes that somehow fit.
9:00 - 10:00PM
History Detectives. That’s right, they’re wherever you need them, anywhere there’s been a crime, there’s the History Detectives! They go and explore the stories behind local folklore, prominent figures, and family legends. Sadly, and I’m sorry to spoil the ending here, but the thief is always some person acting on behalf of Carmen Sandiego. It’s never Carmen Sandiego herself. I understand that after a while it’s supposed to be Carmen Sandiego, but it doesn’t matter how many times I play, it’s never her.
