Not dead. Though unable to speak in the morning until I've had some tea, THANKS AMERICAN COLD GERMS.

Still watching The Following which has gone WEIRD in that I think it might actually have been, sort of not entirely awful the past two episodes? I mean, I watch it for James Purefoy and he was only in a handful of scenes and I didn't really notice cause I was ALL INVOLVED IN THE DRRRRAAMAAA.

spoilers, 'case anyone is actually watching this quality telly )

Spartacus has gone a bit weird too. After three years of "lols, violence, lolarious violence, too much blood to take any of this seriously" they've gone and made violence horrible and awful and a bad thing. WHAT'S THAT ABOUT?

There's one excellent new female character. She's the aedile's wife of the city they end up capturing, and she gets introduced with a baker or such asking her to intercede on his behalf with her husband. Which is the sort of thing I love: this extremely not historically accurate show all about manly men fighting each other, is really pretty decent at showing the influence could and did wield in a part of history where they were generally denied offical power. And, okay, her intercession is of limited effect, but once the city's taken, she becomes unoffical leader of the Roman survivors, and no-one questions it. It's nowhere near Lucretia or Illythia awesome, but it's pretty good.

I've Elementary to catch up on. IT'S STILL BEAUTIFUL AND PERFECT IN ALL THE IMPORTANT WAYS.
