Yeah. Sure. Whatever.
I think there is something terribly wrong with the way I am since I seem to be the only person I know who seem to have enough time and is never busy. Is it only me, who is not doing something that almost everyone seems to be doing?

Bones: Season 4 - Episode 9: Conman in the meth lab
I am trying really hard to fall in step with the characters. It looks as if for every one step they take in one episode, they take two steps back in the next. I was wondering if this was my problem only, but when I read Bones forum at Sidereel I was releived to see that I wasn't the only one who was annoyed with the way show progressed last week. It took Brennan five minutes to believe a stranger who tells her that her partner is a loser. That stranger may be her partner's brother himself, but she who never believes anything unless she has collected enough evidence, believes him immediately. Its annoying how writers take liberty to deviate from characterization to prove a point. I felt I was watching an episode written by a fan fiction writer with an one track mind. On a positive note, introducing Clarke was a smooth move. For me, he is representing a class of audience who think that Bones has more drama in the lab than actual cop work. How can law enforcement officers can be so flaky? I had to watch this episode twice to actually figure out the crime story. The total time actually spent on solving crime was approximately 15 minutes and rest thirty minutes had drama, drama and more drama. Did I say drama? Booth's brother, Jared, played by Brendan Fehr (I watched him in Roswell almost a decade ago. Apparently his acting skills are still to be desired for) is one dimensional and comes off as a typical character that you get to see in a lot of shows; good brother-bad brother duo going through emotional sometimes traumatic childhood together, good brother protecting bad brother etc etc. But this lame excuse itself gives a lot of closure to Booth's behavior, who was the only one seem to be doing some acting in this show.
Today, a new episode will be aired and the promos were looking very promising.
I don't even want to look at ff.net at this point as I am sure there will be plethora of "emotional" Booth stories floating around.

Again, new blog
Like the way I have around 6 email accounts, all active of course, this is my third blog. Ironically some how I end up creating a new blog on my birthday. The other blog is mostly stories and this one would be for anecdotes. Hopefully this would be clear enough so that followers of other blog are not annoyed with a non-story material. Since there is no TV for quite a while, I have living off watching most television shows on internet. I must have watched about 500 and odd episodes of television mega dramas in last fortnight. Its actually good way of keeping mind occupied after a hectic day of programming and mundane meetings. Even though most of the time these dramas lack a sense of integrity, it still is fun to watch. I never had any reservations for language so I am open to dramas from all languages. I watched 100 (or was it 1000?) liters of tears which is a Japanese serial. I think that show would be a huge success in Hindi television. There is no doubt that the drama is downright irritating but there was an element of surprise in it. Alright, it was more of a shock (like you discover that your favorite character in a show develops cancer but still looks dashing) on a daily basis so I enjoyed the guessing game.
