Morning Coffee (10/15/10)Morning Coffee
Good morning! Friday! Finally! We're in the middle of a Nor'easter here, but I feel cheated because there isn't any snow. Boo.
The new Sherlock starts on PBS on the 24th, and NPR has a great interview with the co-creator and lead actor here.
Planet Money bought gold, and their story about it is surprisingly interesting.
More scripts have been ordered for a bunch of shows, including No Ordinary Family, Off the Map, Brothers and Sisters, and Life Unexpected.
Neil Patrick Harris is continuing his quest for world domination by directing a movie, and really, I'm okay with that.
Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke may be directing a Romeo and Juliet series for ABC and . . . I don't know, write your own joke. It's too easy. Two semi-serious things, though: 1) I would not be opposed to seeing Renaissance Verona on my TV every week and 2) how do you make a series out of something in which the main characters die pretty quickly? Like after a few days/weeks, right? What is this going to be, the 24 version of Romeo and Juliet?
The wristwatch is declining? Really? Huh. I feel utterly disoriented when I'm not wearing mine.
"Samuel Jackson," "the CW," and "Sherlock Holmes" are not entities I would usually put in the same sentence. And yet, this seems to be happening. I am baffled but intrigued.Posted by Kat at October 15, 2010 08:12 AM
