mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the prettiest WB star of all?

Hello, it's international embittered and unloved day. I'm also as hormonal as hell, as volatile as old sweaty gelegnite and my alarm didn't go off. The bus seat was wet, the bus was crowded and I'm really feeling the burn from the weekend's gardening. Worse, I'm still as fat as ever. Fatter, even, and I'm even learning to take my coffee without sugar. Just how much misery am I meant to endure in this life, I ask you? Yesterday was horrendous, today promises worse and my big presentation meeting is scheduled for when I should be rolling on the floor screaming in agony. Oh, joy. So much to look forward to. And did I mention that I didn't even get dinner after working back late?

The only break from this unending horror were the Brothers Winchester (how many American fictional characters have been named after weapons: discuss). Steering well clear of the fandom, well, well clear, I'm just there for the pretty Jensen, and the stories. I noticed Richard Hatem was one of the EPs, so this is all I'm gonna get in the way of more Miracles, so I'm gonna take what I can get. And it's not too bad. The Bloody Mary story, one of those weird American things/culture/superstitions/customs that is never wholly explained for any dang foreigners who might be watching, but I get the gist (after a lifetime of US tv I should) and it was genuinely creepy, borrowing hugely from The Grudge as it did. That was a really good episode: good atmosphere, nicely dark, some attempt at character background. Basically the brothers arrive, locate bodgie, dispatch bodgie, rescue pretty girl and ride off into sunset (Supernatural and Shane: discuss).

The second episode, as Ten was double dipping last night (and damn if I won't end up with the Ten bug burned into my screen), was a less effective shapeshifter one. Sadly, it just screamed X Files retread a little too loudly, especially the chase through the sewers (can't America's freaks find cheap rent?) and the American Werewolf thing has been done (even by Wallace and Grommit), though points for Jensen ripping his shirt off. It also seemed to have 15 seperate endings, which let the air out of the balloon a bit. Though the twist at the beggining was nice (Bad Dean? Yes please!), the endings were just a little too pat. But what can you expect from an episode directed by Tom Paris?

RL update: Having the office all to myself is actually great. I've been Little Miss Production Line all day. Not that I'm suggesting my colleagues are boat anchors or anything of the sort. Perish the thought. But, oh my, that inbox has gone down. Nice and quiet.

In other news, a friend just named their brand new son Fabian. Tantamount to child abuse, if you ask me. Talk about pinning a "kick me" sign to the kid at birth. I mean, I'm happy for them, but, well, really.

Hmmm. Go to flicks or go home to hotwater bottle and dvd? I'm thinking home entertainment, as much as I want to see Jarhead and Walk The Line. Just a little bit too worn to really do them justice, n'est pas? If only there was a cinema that wasn't two-three hours away, one way, so I could go on the weekend. Sigh. And they wonder why scummy westies like me prefer dvds. Well, the fact that my four local cinemas were bulldozed could have something to do with it. Just a bit.
