Reduced to Discussing TV

I am slowly catching up on all the saved DVR'd shows. Today I finished the second season of The Bridge, binging through the last four episodes from last September. It's a hard show to watch, and not just because it's in English and Spanish. It's also dark--both night-time dark and noiry dark--and depressing and full of death and cynicism. But it's endlessly rewarding in small ways. How often do you get to watch a show where you hate and giggle at a desperately evil and murderous drug dealer who calls everyone he meets "cabrĂ³n" including one of his female cohorts, who is, of course, a "cabrona." And, boy, is she ever!

Anyway, I now have a rather large crush on both of the lead characters:
Sonya Cross (Diane Kruger)
Marco Ruiz (Demian Bichir)
They are complicated and fascinating, and beyond irritating.

Tomorrow, or maybe Friday, Beast and I will be finishing Outlander. Yes, he's watching it with me. Yay.

I've also got Season One of China Beach that I retrieved from work before I went on leave last week.

We went to church for dinner tonight. I'm exhausted from that excursion.

2 thing(s) to say:

The Bridge is absolutely worth talking about. Many layers there.

Church for dinner sounds like a lot of food for thought. (ba dum bump?)

I started watching The Bridge. I can't remember why I stopped. I'll have to see if I can catch it On Demand. Like Amy said, it's a great show, worth talking about. Glad you're feeling well enough to be out and about.
