Prison Break is back and T-Bag's trying to get his hand re-attached. Eeeuuwww. They killed off a character that, as far as I could tell, nobody much liked (and me, neither). I'm not too sure how it's going to go with the cons on the run, though. I think the show might need the more claustrophic, dangerous setting of the prison. Also, I'd like to know what Capt. Wentworth knows about folding clothes, so that when they're taken out of the ground after being buried for several months? They have not a wrinkle.
Speaking of HBO, I got Rome for my birthday. Loved it joyfully up until the episode we just watched, the one that introduces Cleopatra. New writer and new director, I note. Pullo and his friend seem to be venturing into Forrest Gump territory -- showing up at every major historical event either by incredible luck or amazing coincidence. Also, what was that bit with Brutus's mother and Atia's daughter? It served no purpose, as far as I can tell, except titillation.
Deadwood starts in my neck of the woods on Labor Day. I've never seen it, so I'm prepared to clutch my pearls and be shocked -- shocked! -- at the language.
Now it's off to watch an Amazing Race rerun.
