Who Overloaded My Thursday Nights?  
So, I guess we all know what show's on tonight. \o/

In the spirit of that, I direct you to this gorgeous manip/artwork by digitalwave, which is PG-13 and S4-centric and Gen, and is all kinds of distracting: Blaze of Glory Please give the artist some love! And perhaps write a story around that picture. :)

Life On Mars premieres tonight, and I'll be watching (even though it will NOT be mostly about Harvey Keitel). But I'm disappointed to discover that The Eleventh Hour with Rufus Sewell, which I've been awaiting since early summer, is on opposite Supernatural. *cries* I don't have Tivo, and my one reliable DVR will be recording SPN as I watch it (don't judge me!). I don't want to Torrent, though, if I can help it-- I'm worried about sneaky viruses and such. I foresee the use of the dreaded backup VCR, whose tapes are hated by the primary DVR/VCR machine. :(

On a totally unrelated topic... has anyone tried the "extended cycle" birth control pill yet? Assuming I'm not in a risky age category, I'm becoming more interested in that depending on how well it works. Namely, I am sick to death of having 1.5-2 weeks of every 4 spent being absolutely ravenous, especially when I've been trying to lose weight ever since child #2! However, I don't want a really prolonged hormonal cycle where those 1.5-2 weeks might potentially become a solid month. Anyone have personal experience with this medication?

Please tell me if you find any dl comms for Life on Mars. It kinda looked interesting and I love Harvey Keitel and I just found out Lee Tergesen has a minor role on it. But I ALWAYS close Thursday nights, and I doubt my brother will tape another show in addition to Supernatural.

Awww... What else does he have to do? Can't he program the VCR ahead of time? Shouldn't be THAT hard.

I'll let you know how it goes. Really, aside from the premise being interesting, it's all about Harvey Keitel for me. I still remember when "The Piano," "Bad Lieutenant" and some other movie he did all came out within about a year. Solid gold!

Yeah, we've had the vcr for years and we still can't figure out how to set the timer. And it's hooked up wrong so that it only records exactly what is on screen, rather than being able to record one station while watching another.

Aren't we so pathetically old school? We don't even have a dvd player (mind, the xbox plays them).

The premise did sound interesting, but I'll be honest I wasn't going to watch it until I heard Lee Tergesen was in it (I'm a little...taken with him). And I've loved Harvey Keitel since Reservoir Dogs.

Reservoir Dogs! That was the third movie.

I've never really gotten over my Harvey Keitel love after that year. ;)

It was pretty good, I thought. Good premiere, a little bit freaky. You know how "offbeat" goes over with me!
