on the media



last summer the pixie and i developed an addiction to TNT’s the closer. this investigative comedic-drama features all of the unexpected investigative tricks of law and order, avoids the gimmicky camp of c.s.i. and features an excellent cast that includes kyra sedwick, as the Dixie-bred, passive-aggressive, chocolate obsessed head of l.a.p.d.’s PMS and a number of other noteworthy role players such as j.k. simmons and g.w. bailey.* the closer constantly provides compelling story lines and, fortunately, always fails to take itself too seriously. for my money, it’s the only must see show of the summer.

* let’s hear it for lieutenant harris! who isn’t excited about the forthcoming release of police academy XVIII?

Let's not forget she is one degree from Kevin Bacon, being his wife and all.

well, seeing that they're married and all, i would assume that there are times when she is zero degrees from kevin bacon. fortunately, as far as i know, none of these occasions have been captured on film or are currently featured on the internet:)

YOU are taking equal part in this?? Well at least my obsession won't be so obvious. Now if only I could get Cade to start watching the English Patient....

yeah, i know. i'm such a follower.

did you hear that we just had a tornado warning in beverly and a twister touched down in ipswich? i think that if a displaced okie such as myself moved out to massachusetts only to be killed by a tornado we would have definitive proof that God has a sense of humor. what a tortured sentence...

Like the stories about Iraq war vets who come home only to get killed by a car?
