Robin Hood is the new version of the series on BBC. It started successfully last year and is currently in its second season. Jonas Armstrong stars as Lord Robin of Locksley.
The first season was quite entertaining, especially since I was a fan of the series that ran on the BBC in 1980s. I remember that the 1980s series had a mystical element to it. The new series is really good. It’s a welcome change from some of the more dreary TV shows on American television networks.

Chuck is an American science-fiction television program created by Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak. The series is about an “average computer-whiz-next-door” who receives an encoded e-mail from an old college friend Bryce Larkin, a rogue CIA agent, which happens to embed the world’s greatest spy secrets into his brain. This is called the intersect.
While Chuck has to deal with his new situation, he gets to enjoy the company of Sarah, working for the CIA, and Casey, working for the DOD. They use him as an asset to accomplish their missions, which surprisingly happen around town (?).

The blondes decide to pull a U-Turn on Lorena and Jason. Lorena and Jason are already last because of the whole camel milk incident in the previous episode.
U-Turn is a new route marker. It’s similar to a Yield. Teams can only use the U-Turn once in a race. Once it is used on another team, which only happens after a Detour, the team must make their way back to the Detour and complete the other task before moving on.

I’ve got four days left until NaNoWriMo is finished. I’ve broken the 40000 word mark. It took me a bit longer than expected, but I’m still confident that I’ll finish in time. I’ve set myself a little goal today. I want to reach 45000 by the end of the day. I’ve already written 1500 words today.

It’s been a while since there has been a vampire show on TV. Angel was just a continuation of Buffy. Blade was an action show. Moonlight is somewhere in between. It’s gritty and romantic, which isn’t appalling. Unlike Angel and Forever Knight, Mick St-John isn’t that old of a vampire, so the flashbacks all take place in the 1950s to 1970s.
Alex O’Loughlin plays Mick St-John, a vampire private detective. He is a vampire who fully remembers what it meant to be human and longs to be human.
