True Blood

Oh, True Blood, how I've missed you! Watching tonight's second season premiere reminded me why you're one of my new favorite shows -- you just don't stop with the crazy!

Crazy awesome, that is. Vampires, dungeons, shape-shifting thieves forced to have sex with the lady of the house (hot!), aristocrats smacking their butlers, vibrating snake women...the list of awesome never ends!

Seriously, I can't believe how many seeds planted in the first season are blooming now -- far more plot points than I remembered, actually.

And, as I suspected would happen last season, crazy teenage vampire Jessica is fast becoming my new favorite character!

Still, what is up with the big, metal Conan wheel? Maybe "Conan wheel" will be this season's "werecollie" for me.

Cash Cab!

My friend Shade Rupe, who is without a doubt the luckiest man I know because he is always in the right place at the right time (his face can even be clearly seen in the City Hall crowd scene in Spider-Man 3), wound up on the show Cash Cab earlier this year. I only just found out about it recently during a conversation with mssrcrankypants, since I don't watch the show but Cranky's little boy loves it. Anyway, I managed to track it down on YouTube for your viewing enjoyment. It's actually quite riveting!
