Random Thought for August 9th

Heroes - Nissan Versa

Oh, man.

I had a DVD player that I'd hacked to allow it to play DVDs from all regions, so that I could get British shows from Amazon UK that weren't available here.  A week or two ago, I finally broke down and bought both Life on Mars and Spaced.  The day after I ordered them...the DVD player broke.  

So I thought about it for a few days and finally spent $90 on a region free Toshiba DVD player through Amazon from an independent company.  I have no idea where it's from, other than it came with an adaptor on the plug.  Took 30 seconds to connect everything and it works.  Perfectly.  Best $90 I've spent in a long time.

And man, I had forgotten exactly how much awesome Life on Mars is made out of.

I've only just got into Life on Mars which, as a Brit, I suppose is kind of shameful! But, you know, John Simm is a bit do-able, so I now have that incentive...

I watched most of the first season on BBC America and liked it. It's looking like they're never going to release it on DVD here, so I broke down and bought a UK set. It's even better on the second viewing--I think because when you're not trying to figure out the plot, you can just relax and enjoy the soundtrack and the silly humorous parts.

And yes, John Simm is one of those guys who's odd-looking, but somehow attractive. I don't know how he does it...
