Adventures w/Netflix Instant Watch  
 Lie to Me - If you're not watching it, it's probably the best show you've never seen.  Really interesting stuff, and of course, Tim Roth is an amazing actor.  I loved it so much, I paid to download and watch the first part of S2 on Zune, so I'd be all caught up to watch the second part when it starts airing here soon.  So that hopefully FOX will renew it for a third season.

Merlin - Um, where do I start?  Arthur and Merlin growing up together?  Morgan Le Fay as Uther's ward?  Guinevere as her maidservant??  I love the Arhturian mythos an awful lot.  Maybe too much for this show to truly engage me.  We'll see after the first few eps if I keep going.

Go - Timothy Olyphant was the only reason I turned this on, and that whole I-could-watch-him-read-the-phonebook thing holds magic truth, because I watched the whole thing, despite him only being in it for...twenty minutes total?  Maybe?  

Monarch of the Glen - BBC has lots of shows on here I've never gotten to see before (Yay!), and you know, this is the sort of show that's right up my alley in an Anne of Avonlea kind of way.  But it's sort of slow and stuff, so I reserve it for background jewelry-making watching.  

But seriously, check out Lie to Me if you haven't yet.  I mainlined both season in a few days, because it was just that good that I couldn't stop thinking about it when it wasn't on.

It really, really is. Fantastic characters, fascinating subject, interesting stories, amazing acting...in a lits of pros and cons, I can't come up with a single con.

I have little faith in FOX's ability to stand by how fantastic it is, but I have a little hope, since they evidently only originally ordered 13 eps of S2, then added the back 9 when ratings proved good enough. Hopefully that means a S3 is not too otuisde the realm of possibility.

Oh, icon! I must get one, myself. :D

I *heart* Lie to Me. It is so, so good, and Tim Roth is mean to everybody! :)

Ooh...Merlin is on the Netflix Instant Watch? Now I know how I'll be spending my day off next week.:)

I really really really like Lie to Me, even though every time the spouse catches me watching it, he points in random direction and exclaims, "He's lying! She's lying! They're all lying!"

I always have to throw something at him to get him to stop.

At one point I said "It's ironic really that they are lying to each other about lying to each other."

And my husband says, "What do you mean?"

"They're actors, they're all lying.....get it?"

I received a pillow at velocity at that point. I do love the show, and I need to catch up I think the last half starts next Wednesday.

I will say that Merlin isn't remotely trying to be accurate to any particular iteration of Arthurian legend.

However, unrelated to that, I will also say that it is the woooooooooooorst. Hahah oh everything it chooses to be. SO AWFUL.

But I was stockholmed into watching it by Tumblr and Angel Coulby's face and hung around for the Arthur/Guinevere (and Bradley James' face) so how much can I really say!
