Anyone know any delightful, juicy Veronica Mars spoilers? Please? Also, I've missed a week and a half worth of entries which is way too many for me ever to catch up. So if there is anything you think I'll especially like, please point me :)

Just realized that Battlestar Galactica starts this friday. I am afraid I squealed when I saw that. Bought the 2.0 DVDs and delighted with the abundance of podcasts and deleted scenes (though mysteriously none for Pegasus). Fun thing was, ended up talking about BSG at the checkout line both with the clerk (who told me he preferred Trek) and the guy in front of me who said he loved Six (heee) and was thinking of becoming a professional wrestler. Yeah.

Thoughts on deleted scenes )

I also saw the 4+ minute preview of second half. Thoughts on preview )

I am reading The Secret History of Pink Carnation, a novel that is a take-tribute to both The Scarlet Pimpernel and Georgette Heyer. It's not nearly as good as either, but it's not a bad read. The framing story has a grad student researching the mysterious fighter of the French during Napoleonic era known as "The Pink Carnation" whose identity has never been revealed by going through papers of Lord Richard Selwick, a successor to the retired Pimpernel, known as the Purple Gentian. The real story of the novel is of course the story of the Purple Gentian, his spying activities and his interest in one Amy Belcourt (who has a severe obsession with Purple Gentian but isn't much interested in Lord Richard) and other various romps. Yes, we do learn the Pink Carnation's identity.

Thoughts on the book versus Heyer and the REAL Pimpernel )
