Happy Monday. Taped The Wire but haven't watched it yet. The new Stargates weren't bad - but they keep getting all maudlin about Vala wanting to "belong" to something "bigger than herself", blah, blah, blah. Enough already.

The alternate universe/evil twin plot of Stargate: Atlantis was a little better than it might have been. It wasn't an evil McKay but a "cool" McKay that everyone in our reality (except McKay) really liked. Amusing, but hardly necessary. The show actually featured McKay's sister and spent the opening twenty minutes or so with an entertaining and amusing exploration of their sibling rivalries and shattered family history. They could have stayed on that arc for the whole show and done just fine.

Started watching season two of Carnivale...

Season two continues the high quality acting and production started in season one. But in their attempt to tweak it up and make the larger story clearer, I dunno, they went a bit off the rails. They're trying to make things genuinely apocalyptic but for my money they're going a bit too blatant and obvious. But, it's only two episodes so we'll see where it goes...
