Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog: brilliantly funny and tragic, as promised, and the music was excellent. Found myself wondering what happens next.
Flash Forward: started watching this at the behest of a friend, and am glad I did. I've always had a thing for figuring out the various consequences of some cataclysmic or otherwise large-scale unexpected event, and this is all about that. So far the characters are believable and consistent and not too cookie-cutter, although the hero of the tale does skate pretty close. But I like the ensemble and the slow build-up and piecing-together of things, so I think I'll keep watching this one. At least as long as ABC keeps airing it--they dropped Defying Gravity mid-run with no word why or when they'll pick it up again. grrrrr
Astro City vol. 1: pretty and enjoyable and just sort of good-humored and stuff. The library only has the first volume, but I'm definitely going to try to locate the rest of them. Even if they get darker, I really like the premise and the characters and the internal consistency of it all. Also, it's a lot like the superhero stories I keep telling in my head, which makes it even more enjoyable.
Pogo--the music dude, not the possum. He does, I dunno, electronica? Something like that? All I know is his music is free and great for grooving along to at work. And it's great fun trying to ID the teeny-tiny bits from movies he's got mashed in there.
