Band of Brothers

did not "get better near the end." There were reasons. The first and most obvious (to me) being the packaging. Multiple DVDs of a series need to be packed in a queue or in some manner that allowed direct access to any DVD in that packaging. Packing them into a stack demonstrates a lack of understanding of how DVDs in a series are watched, and irks watchees like me to no end.

Faux decolouring and over-sepiarisation. There really is a reason black-and-white and sepia-coloured shows aren't made any more (except in high-budget, pretentious projects). This is the one reason I would have preferred Michael Bay's Pearl Harbour over Band of Brothers.

And finally. Some nut said "it gets better near the end" which I took seriously (dumb of me.. but only because I fell asleep at least once during each of the first 3 episodes). OK, fine. It did get better but it wasn't a heck of a lot better. The feeling is that of thankfulness it is over.

Googling for Socks

and no, I don't mean online comparison shopping for socks. Is 5 years to soon to expect stuff like that?

My "now" mindset is absolutely against Google indexing stuff in my apartment (let's just forget the bit about how they're gonna do it ya?) unless .. it's just a Google-branded box sitting IN my apartment and I have proof (don't need to understand all of it, just knowledge that it's there) that my socks are really not Google-able from anywhere else.

Come to think of it, that would be pretty neat. I know of someone who would really like to find a beta Black Lotus that may be in his apartment.

Other TV Series

in my viewing queue are

1. Lost (Season 2)

2. Veronica Mars (Season 2)

3. The West Wing (Season 7)

4. Grey's Anatomy (Season 2) 

I've watched a few episodes of the first 3 but I suppose it's about time to finish them. Also in the queue at a lower priority are

5. Justice League (Seasons 1 and 2)

6. Babylon 5 (Seasons 1 and 2)

A new season of The 4400 has just started, but I cannot decide whether to catch them 1 at a time or to accumulate the entire season.
