bread and circuses

i was asked recently what tv shows i'm watching lately. i'm just thinking it might be a good idea to also share my answer here in this journal. so i checked a tv guide to see what's on this week. the person who asked is from the US, so let's not look at anything on the bbc, but focus on what i can find that's american and/or canadian and relatively new:

hostages, chicago fire, game of thrones, arrow, marvel's agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., revolution, the blacklist, unforgettable, scandal, perception, hart of dixie

of all these shows i only watch the blacklist (i think james spader is awesome) & scandal. game of thrones is season two, which i've already seen. i have recorded some episodes of S.H.I.E.L.D., but haven't watched one yet. same thing with perception which only just started this week here on a channel named 13th street.

speed skating. it's what we do. so far things are going really well for us at the winter olympics. at one point (monday night) we were leading the medal table with 3 gold, 2 silver and 2 bronze. i was a little surprised (and not in a good way) to learn how news about one of our female speed skaters is covered by some sites in the US. perhaps more about that some other time.

meanwhile, more medals poured in. the medal count by today's end: 4 gold, 3 silver, 5 bronze

P.S. : for olympic hugs of the day see Kristina Groves' @kngrover ..
