Five things, in brief. 04.06.2007

A quick rundown of some random things:

  1. Murder Princess episode 1, despite a mind-bogglingly retarded name, was fairly decent. Nothing spectacular, but hopefully it’ll move beyond generic action tripe.

  2. The Office episode 19, The Negotiation was hilarious. Dwight with the pepper spray. Angela and the Epic Tale of Dwight the Brave.

  3. The BBC1 show Life on Mars is really, really good.

  4. Liu Yifei is going to be in the Jet Li/Jackie Chan film. Hopefully not in too major of a role. The girl’s pretty, but damn, she can’t act. The only reason she was good in Return of the Condor Heroes is because Xiao Longnu spends most of the time alternating between stoic silence and silent weeping.

  5. Andy Barker, P.I. is my favorite new show. I still enjoy 30 Rock, The Simpsons and The Office more in the comedy genre, but in terms of newcomers, this beats out the getting-old-really-fast Knights of Prosperity and I-don’t-get-why-this-is-funny In Case of Emergency.
