I've been waiting a long time for this series. It was suppose to start in the fall but was pushed back for a mid season replacement. It finally premeried tonight on FOX. The pilot was AWESOME!!!!! So much action and cool special effects. One of the better things about this show is one of my new favorite new actors is in it, Summer Glau. Those who don't know her she played River on Firefly/Serenity and she kicks butt as the good terminator. I hope they keep this action up through out the series, which is suppose to run 13 episodes. Tomorrow night is another episode in it's regular timeslot of Monday night 9pm... can't wait.
Well I was finally able to see this movie.. I wanted to see it back in August when it came out but work was crazy and I didn't have the time. But today I did manage to watch it at home and I have to say it was pretty good. Some what predictable but fun none the less. I know it's based on a series of books but I'm not sure if this one movie encompassed the entire series or just the first book. It had some really cool special effects and the story moved along at a brisk pace. It's a basic story about light and dark, good and evil. I plan on reading the books as the movie did go pretty fast and things were resolved very quickly.

Every Thursday Harry and I host a TV night where we watch Sci and Fantasy TV shows and movies. Tonight we continued to watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer season one. It's been a while since I watched the first season and watching it reminds me of why I fell in love with this series so many years ago. We plan on watching all seven season which might take a few years but it will be a fun ride. Along with Buffy we watch the pilot episode of The Golden Girls..what a duo.. it was a fun night.

Tonight when I got home from work I had a ton of energy, which is very unusual after a long day at work... but I figured I might as well get some stuff done around the house. I organized my toy room and integrated all the new toys I got for Christmas. I put new toys up in our office. Hung all the Star Trek plates in the hallway and still had energy to make some pork chops and rice.

Today I was finally able to watch the new American Gladiators that I recorded from Sunday and Monday. I was a huge fan of American Gladiators back in the early 90's so I was excited to see it's return... and I have to say I wasn't disappointed. It's just as fun, cheesy and entertaining as it was back then. It actually brought back some great memories of when my Dad, brother and I went to two tapings of the live show. I look forward to watching the rest of these season.

Our friends John and Mosies had a 12 Day of Christmas dinner. We spent the night with John, Mosies, Bruce, Tom and John. It was a fun night with some very good homemade mexican food. After dinner we played a little Harry Potter scene it game (of course I was the best :) ) and watched a few clips of Harry Potter 5 and an episode of the Simpsons on their new HD TV / Blu-ray system.. it was beautful. A fun night was had by all.
