In Plain Sight Season Finale

And in other news, how much do I love Scarecrow & Mrs. King? I've been rewatching the first season on DVD, and it's got a certain casual 80s sexism and racism and classism (oh god, do not get me started on the casual racism of "I Have Not Now, Nor Have I Ever Been ... A Spy"), and it's very Republican (in the 80s sense of the word - which has nothing to do with what Republican means today), but despite all of that, it can be incredibly charming. And it's such a fascinating show from a feminist point of view, because of the incredible mixed messages it sends about the virtues of domesticity and homemaking versus "career women," and how it doesn't seem to recognize that it's undermining its own message because Amanda is the most careerist woman of them all. And yet, at the same time, looking at it today, I also kind of appreciate a show that seems to genuinely place value on spheres that are traditionally feminine.

And of course, Amanda and Lee nail my buddy!kink so hard.

When's the second season coming out? When, when?? (Yes, I have really awful VHS-to-DVD copies of the rest of the show, but I want nice shiny professional DVDs!)

And, hey! I think you can stream the pilot episode here. It looks like most, if not all, of the episodes are available for streaming.

No Merlin last week, no Supernatural this week, and I can't even work up the energy to start screaming about how Goldman Sachs took over the Treasury Department.

I'm working on this Merlin vid that may never make it out of development, and I'm struck anew by just how gaunt Colin Morgan looks now - it's incredibly striking, especially when compared to how he looked in Season One. I can't help but fear this is some kind of thing where he starts a radical diet to avoid the natural filling-out that comes with age and thus maintain a youthful appearance for the show - if that's what it's about, that's really sad.

Misha as Misha is adorable. Also, his attitude toward him looking at fanfic captures exactly my attitude toward him looking at fanfic. Now if he could just get Kripke to feel the same way.

I have yet to watch any episodes of Heroes this season, but I'll get around to it. Heroes, Smallville, and Fringe are the three shows I continue to watch even though I have literally no idea what's going on. Flashforward will soon be in that category.

Scarecrow & Mrs. King will finally be coming to DVD! In 2010. Maybe. I'll just keep hoping because, as I've mentioned before, I do love this show.

And, finally, I did complete the A Charming Man remaster - but it's actually not very different from the original, surprisingly. A couple of clips are sharper, some coloring differences, but it pretty much looks the same. Still, if you're interested, you can DL at my website.
