Our consultants just arrived.

My cow orker came to my office and said "did you see the two bobs?" I was the only one who knew what he was talking about!

Started watching Wilfred last night.

It's an American retooling of an Australian series that seems to be based on loosely the same concept, but is ultimately very different, like the UK vs. US versions of Being Human. The same Australian actor plays Wilfred in the American series.

Elijah Wood is a suicidal (possibly manic depressive) guy, who sees his neighbor's dog Wilfred as a man in a dog costume. It sounds ridiculous, I know, but there were no wacky hijinks, just a twisted psychological comedy about a guy trying to figure out how (and whether) to put his life back together. Really enjoying it so far.

The Walking Dead, on Netflix.

I'm already beginning to wonder (two episodes in) if this isn't going to be a long, drawn out 'every-gimmick-you've-ever-seen-in-a-zombie-flick-stretched-out-over-multiple-seasons-type thing.

And don't even get me started on Netflix's video quality, which is The Suck.

The video quality adjusts based on your internet speed. As soon as you can buffer more, it will stream a sharper image.

I got poor people's DSL.

Also, Hulu's quality doesn't seem to suffer nearly as much.

Now revisiting Torchwood for the benefit of my beloved (who turned 40 yesterday) who hasn't seen it yet, but loves Warehouse 13.

Eden of the East - Short (11 episode) anime about this guy who shows up naked with a cell phone and a gun at the White House. Doesn't look a thing like slang.

I don't stream movies, I either watch them on TV or download them to watch on my PC.

Netflix is a goldmine of outdated TV series. Since Mrs. Z and I missed the last twenty years or so, we have been having fun catching up. Lately, it's been Lie to Me and White Collar.

Mrs. Z wasn't interested, but I watched the whole Firefly series a couple of weeks ago. I don't understand why that didn't go over better.

Stormie, didn't you just love Timothy Olyphant in Deadwood? I love him in Justified too. And I just found out that he is in season 2 of Damages.
