And I don’t mean the language learning system but some brain fuzz in the way of clear thinking. I am writing this after a cup and a half of coffee.
It amazes me how football fans find ways to salvaging their season and explaining that even if their team has a really bad record, they can turn it around and get into the playoffs, run the table and win the Superbowl. The more weeks that are played the machinations of how their team will make it get more convoluted. Funny how the Giants fans are placing their entire season on tonight’s game. But if you run the numbers, that is the only way that this season can be salvaged. The Jets are doing OK. The Falcons are really not getting it done. Da Bears have to get it together since their division is wide open for a team that starts winning.
Today is a combination of things that need to get done and a couple of things need to get started. This week is all about Caroline’s Halloween costume and getting that done in the best possible ways. Starting with the pattern which I plan to finish up today.
I liked Once Upon a Time last night to a point. The point where it lost me was in the third act when Neal turns on Gold after Pan works his mental games with Neal. Gold was honest with Neal but Neal wasn’t listening. It was clumsy. And considering how Neal feels about Pan and the things that happened with him and his dad the previous season, it really didn’t ring true for where they left the characters. The actors did the best that they could with the material but if the material isn’t there, then it just doesn’t work. And the puzzling thing is that both writers are working on the series and have written some good episodes. I get the feeling that things were written into a corner and they had to pull the old soap opera stunt to keep the story going.
We watched Reign. Overall it is historical garb fluff. The thing that made us question if we were going to watch another episode is all the bloody music through out the thing trying to set the tone for the scene. Let your actors do what they need to do or get better actors. And there are some good young actors stuck amongst the music.
Well off to deal with the next thing that needs to be dealt with. Hope everyone has a very pleasant day. The weather here is really nice and makes me want to do stuff outside.
I am grateful for having learned how to dissect a script.
