So, I couldn't watch any of the NBC shows last night, including the series finale (on that network anyway) of Scrubs, because our local affiliate decided to run two hours of a guy standing in front of a map saying "now if you live here, the tornadoes will be here, lets look at this handy graph..." FOR TWO HOURS. We get it dude, tornadoes are coming, shut up and run a ticker. I think people understand "Tornado watch for Podunk county" scrolling along the bottom of their TV.

Halo was fun last night, far less frustrating than last time. My gun actually managed to kill someone for once.

I also finished Watchmen last night. I know, I know, I'm the last geek on the planet to read it. They're making a movie of it... somehow. I'm afraid it's going to suck. As fantastic as the graphic novel is, stupid moviegoers won't want to watch superheroes stand around and talk for two hours. They're going to have to change it far too much. The nuance and subtlety and brilliance will be lost.

Its so weird that you know and remember that based on Erik playing with us the other night.

Its like when you watch a TV show, and they reference a totally different series as if its in-universe. You suddenly realize that a crossover is now possible, and those beloved characters are now running around in that same world, just off-camera.

I know that feeling so well! :)

Plus, it was easy to remember, as Bone is one of my favorite comics ever (not like I've read that many, mind you) -- I've been reading 'em since 1995 or so.

I just got off the phone with him, we're hanging out. I'll grab it tonight if I remember. It's a huge book! Its like the complete series in one volume. Erik referred to it as a "great bathroom reader".

We had the crawl, which knocked shows down to non-Hd, but at least they were still watchable.

I'm verrrrry interested to see what happens with Watchmen movie. They've already said the pirate comic is out, which I guess you'd sort of have to. It'd be like making a whole second movie inside the first.

Apparently they're going to animate the comic for the DVD. Maybe even intercut it with the live action movie, but not for the theatrical release.

Honestly, I'm not such a huge fan of the pirate comic anyway. I think it bogs down the story too much. So I won't miss it in the film.
