pepper: Swan on green river (Swan)
Things I have done recently:

- Discovered a meadow - with cows! - right in the middle of Oxford. Okay, yes, I'm sure everyone else already knew about Christ Church Meadow, and I had in fact seen one of the entrances to it, but I'd never investigated it. Cows! In the city!

- Went to see The A-Team. Da-da-duh-duuuuh, duh-duh-DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUH... I practically bounced all the way home, feeling like I was seven again. EXPLOSIONS! Plans coming together! MORE EXPLOSIONS! Overkill is underrated! YET MORE EXPLOSIONS TIMES ELEVENTY! It was exactly like my memory of the A-Team, and not at all like actually rewatching the A-Team, IYSWIM. If you go see it, stick around until the end of the credits (unlike everyone else in the cinema with me - what is their hurry?).

Spoilers. )

- Watched two more Mac S6 episodes, of which more later.

- Seriously underestimated RDA's capacity for incomprehensible text-speak. Zoiks.

- Also watched the last ep of Sherlock – only three eps? Boo. Also, bastards, for that ending. Loved the umpty-billion references to the original stories. V. fond of John.

- I'm sure there was something else...

- ...Nope, it's not coming back to me.

ETA: Oh, I remembered! My local shop is now selling kulfi lollies, in pistachio (my favourite!) and it makes me very haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaappeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Come on, TV, shape up.

Some more MacGyver season 6 episode reactions. Spoilers galore.

Squeeze Play: in which I am not a baseball fan. )

Jerico Games: in which I need to relax about stupid TV disguises. )

Okay. A bit stupid, both of them, but I've seen worse. Onwards, ever onwards.

ION, and speaking of Sherlock Holmes: Did they make the new Sherlock Holmes* with an eye to the slash side of fandom or what? Wow. Anyhow, brainlessly enjoyable, sadly lacking in decent female roles thus far (they missed a great opportunity to make Lestrade a woman, I'm just sayin'), I love Mark Gatiss but he's in the wrong show, and it was nice to see the real 221B Baker Street, which I used to walk past fairly regularly. And the website content is cute but I can't believe Holmes in any incarnation would ever use a design like that.

It's depressing that they can have Watson "invalided home from Afghanistan" in both the original and the modern version.


* The BBC series, that is, and not the RDJ film, which I've not watched.
