It's Hot and I'm Bored

Since most of my shows are on hiatus, I've been trolling Netflix and Amazon for anything worth watching. I've started watching Veep, and it's bitingly funny, but who should turn up in Season 4 but Hugh fricking Laurie. It's the first time I've watched anything with him in it since House took its disasterous turn into unacknowledged domestic abuse, and I wasn't sure how I'd feel about it. As it turns out, I'm ambivalent. The rest of the show is great, though. I can't recommend it enough.

I've also been watching Falling Skies, which is the Noah Wyle vehicle that could best be described as The Walking Dead meets Aliens. It's not bad, but so far it seems to suffer from being too fond of its leads to kill them off, which has made it somewhat predictable. That's unfortunate because (in some ways that I don't want to go into too much in case anyone decides to watch) the plot has some very interesting twists. I just wish that I couldn't predict who was going to die everytime they go into battle.

Finally, on a strictly materialistic note, I bought myself these the other day. (So pretteh.)
