So we lost the Red River Rivalry to OU this year. On the bright side, at least I go to a real school. I went to the game for the first time this year, and it was surprisingly fun. We had incredible seats on the 25 yard line, which made the experience much more memorable. I think we had the two dumbest OU fans in the entire stadium seated behind us, however. The husband would yell “it’s a running play!” everytime OU tried to rush, while the football-retarded wife just yelled “cheaters” every ten seconds. They were dumb, even by Oklahoma standards. Thankfully the game was really close, and we could have won if it wasn’t for Jammal Charles being a douche-cock. But enough about football…
The passing of the LSAT has left me with more time to endulge in my television obsession. Instead of catching up on school work, I have been watching season one of Mad Men, season four of The Wire, season three of Buffy, and season one of Jekyll. In reverse order…Jekyll is a BBC miniseries about a modern day Jekyll and Hyde character. I’m have two episodes left, but so far they have handled everything in a way that’s both innovative and convincing. The lead actor, James Nesbitt, does a great job creating the split personalities of Dr. Tom Jackman and Mr. Hyde, and the supporting cast members are all strong. Moving on, Buffy really broke out in its third season with the introduction of Faith, Wesley, and mayor with a serious case of demon-envy. It was the last season of Buffy with both Angel and Oz, which is good news for anyone who has taste. I’m only one episode into season four of The Wire, but it looks like this will be the best season of the show. They are focusing on the inner workings of a political campaign, in addition to the drug and organized crime rings introduced in the previous seasons. Finally, Mad Men is an entertaining summer show. I’ve enjoyed the first five episodes, but I don’t think I would include it among my favorite shows at this point. That said, I’ll continue watching it until the end of the season, and look forward to seeing where the show is going.
SNL is back, and the first two episodes have been pretty good. I guess the rumors of a lifetime ban for Chevy Chase were wrong, because he was definitely on last night. The highlight of the first two episodes, as always, was the digital short last week. Andy Samburg made lyrical love to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad all over New York City in “I Ran”. My favorite line? “He ran for the President of Iran, we ran together to a tropical island.”
Darjeeing Limited sneak preview on Tuesday night, if anyone’s interested! I have passes, we just need to get there early because the crowds will be large. Let me know.
