I take back what I said about not watching more TV with a DVR in the house. Though that's not particularly motivating me to keep it around...

Anyway. It's time to start new shows to replace those that have been cancelled. I watched Empire's pilot episode, mostly for Taraji P. Henson. It was better than I might have expected, but still not something I'm likely to watch on a regular basis. I like some sci-fi with my sudsy programming. Family dramas also need robots with feelings, or something like that. Heh. Though if you like that kind of drama, Henson was very memorable. Striking, you might say. *snickers*

Agent Carter had a good debut. Apparently they're planning a seven episode run. I don't know if that means that's all, period, or if that's just a trial run for a potential second season. I liked it enough to keep watching, even though period pieces don't often catch my attention.

Galavant is a medieval comedy musical, and thoroughly silly. Thumbs up. Here's one of the songs:



As for books, I'm now on the third book in McGuire's Toby Daye series. They're entertaining and straightforward fairy tale mysteries, which is a cool combination. (Apparently they get compared to the Harry Dresden series quite often. But I've only managed to read two of that series, over a much longer period of time. So take that for what it's worth.)
