A Sunday Review

TV this week:

  • Big Daddy's House: "Dream Dinner" - Looked tasty, but mostly stuff I don't generally eat. This guy makes me feel like I could almost make it, despite my ability to make the easiest recipe turn into inedible slop.
  • Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives: "Brain Freeze" - Ok, I'd love to try the sweet potato ice cream. But I really don't need most of the ice cream. I want it, but I'm strong enough... I don't need it.
  • Food Detectives: "Brain Freeze" - I almost never get brain freeze, because I usually eat ice cream pretty slowly. The freezer burn advice was good, and I will no doubt use it in the future.
  • Ace of Cakes: "Swimming With the Sharks" - I wanna swim with the sharks.
Comics this week:
  • Green Lantern Corps #27 - A bit of a day-in-the-life issue, with some nasty set up. Natu appears, but only briefly, so I'll say it was a so-so issue.
  • Captain Britain and MI13 #4 - I like Faiza. The rest, not so much.
  • Checkmate #29 - This book is nearly done, right?
  • Action Comics #868 - Um, go Brainiac?
  • Batman #679 - Don't know what is happening in this issue, don't really care.
  • Doctor Who #6 - Hrm. If the issue hadn't had a review of what happened, I wouldn't have understood it at all. As it was, the story was almost too confusing to follow.
  • Tiny Titans #7 - Wonder Girl playing with an Aquaman action figure? CUTE!
