In The Garden Of Absent Trees...  
Boy, our house looks weird without those trees. I can't get used to it, and everytime I drive up I get depressed all over again.

Saw last night's V, and remembered why the conclusion from the prior week left me with my mouth hanging open. We're halfway through last week's Fringe (hope to finish before this week's episode), and creeping through S1 Psych on DVD. I could swear Baby!Sammy was in the Spelling Bee episode, and I can't believe they got rid of House's Amber after the Pilot. Meh.

Thanks to Monday's rain, I re-watched more of S1 Dead Like Me. I don't understand why "Nighthawks" had so much clip-filler from other episodes. Was that when the show's creator hung up his hat? Because the other parts of the episode (self-evaluations! Kibbutzing with Kiffany!) were great.

I also found myself wondering for the bazillionth time whether there is only ONE cabin near a lake that's available for filming in all of Vancouver. Not only was it George's family-vacation cabin, but it was also the "Dead In The Water" cabin from SPN, and the lake (but not the cabin) appeared in Smallville. Dudes... mix it up better, seriously.

Now a question of ultimate importance: why has no one uploaded the "Blarfingar" skit from Betty White's SNL appearance yet? I've searched YouTube and the Internet as a whole, but haven't found it. HalfshellHusband needs to see that (I showed him the "Wizard of Ass" skit last night).

I am upset that next week is the season finale of V. I was all set to hate it (love the classic one, don't wanna say original, cause this one is original also) but it totally grew on me. I am waiting for a scene similar to the orig where Julie ripped the face from John to reveal him as a lizard. I did like the idea that the scientists did come up with something that would hurt lizards, and Paul McGillion was great and looked yummy also. And I hope we get to see Valerie's baby, but I think they will hold off on that until next season.

You're right, it IS the season finale (and I've heard rumors that the show won't be renewed- boo!)

I'm not ready for it to be over, and I'm falling more in love with Ryan every episode. I want Valerie to come back to him!

From what I had read, the show was doing pretty good in the ratings, and please, don't let them cancel it, at least before they tie up the loose ends.

That cabin's also the cabin at the end of Devour, and it's in Dark Angel at one point too, I think. There's loads of scenic cabin-and-lakes but this one's got the best accessibility and rates for film crews, I'd guess. Buntzen Lake, I believe it is.

I'd forgotten that it was in Devour! And I watched Dark Angel "real time," so it's not as fresh in my mind.

Seeing the "repeat locales" kind of pulls you out of the show, especially with so much being filmed in Vancouver these days. For instance, the dock in "Wishing Well" for Dean's big S4 discussion is also where the Devil persuaded Ryan to sign his "recording contract" on Reaper. It's a pretty distinctive dock! And the top-of-dam showdown with Andy's twin on SPN was the site of the failed electric-truck-reaping-vessel attempt on Reaper.

Never got into Reaper, but yeah. Some parts of Vancouver are pretty recognizable. I wish they'd do more filming over here on the Island; we have a lot of cool and underused locations. :-D

Re: Blarfingar
Yay! Thank you so much!

I can't believe that isn't all over the Interwebs already. I mean, an exchange like,

Surveyor: And those are people and not cats?
Betty White: Well, there's no way of really knowing, is there?

was worth that skit alone!

Re: Blarfingar
I wanted to let you know that I showed that video to HalfshellHusband that same night, and he thought it was hilarious.

Thanks again for uploading it. :)
