I finished watching Arrested Development last night. It was a fun series while it lasted, although I found the humour was very hit-and-miss.

I guess the risk of quirky comedy is that being quirky is not always enough. I found, for example, most of Charlize Theron’s story arc was unfunny and a waste of a talented actress. Also the kissing cousins storyline was often weak on the humour as well.

However, as a whole the series was fun to watch.

Work has been increasing in intensity – the new client is a great challenge, and we have been working hard. Productively too, mind.

I got my scan results – a fairly clean bill of health. No abnormalities were found. Yays!

Other than that not much more to report today. 🙂

Have a great weekend!

Yesterday I bought the Dead Like Me movie. Long time followers of my blogging will no doubt remember that I loved the quirky show about Grim Reapers in Seattle that was cruelly cancelled in its prime.

After several years if hard work, the show’s producers got the funds to make a straight to DVD movie with the hopes that it might go the way of Family Guy and be able to reignite interest in the show.

Unfortunately two of the original cast were not available, and the key creatives behind the sharp scripts and production weren’t either.

Sometimes it is best to know when the odds are against you. Yet this movie was still made. While the original cast do their best with a truly awful script and crap storyline, nothing manages to prevent this from feeling horribly awkward to watch and very weakly directed.

In short…

It’s a shit film.

Arrested Development, on the otherhand is proving to live up to the hype. I missed this show when it aired, but I find it to be incredibly fun to watch.

I’ll talk more on it after I gave finished watching season one.

Still kind of in a relationship malaise at the moment. I wonder if all these games and DVDs I’m getting is symptomatic of my feeling a tad empty? Or maybe I’m just a big old consumer. 🙂

See you all later! Have a great day!
