Vidiocy

Things that I have watched on the television recently that were good:

More episodes of Alias from season 2.

A couple episodes of Fruits Basket.

Onmyoji (A big-budget Japanese fantasy movie -- fun, good fx, and interesting figuring out things-that-would-be-obvious-if-I-were-Japanese.)

Onmyoji II (The sequel -- maybe even a little better than the first one, though that might be just because in this one, we knew who the main good guy character was before the end of the movie.)

Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind (Miyazaki. Need I say more?)

Things that I have watched on the television recently that were very, very bad:

About ten minutes of American Idol and a mercifully few seconds of The Simple Life on the TV in the Chinese restaurant while we were waiting for our takeout order.

Things that I have watched on the television recently that weren't nearly as bad as I was expecting:

Several episodes of Jem.
Yes. That Jem. The truly, truly, truly outrageous one.
Mind you, it was still bad -- just not as bad as I expected.
And so. Very. PINK!
