Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



For The Whole Trailer Park

It is bad enough that I was too busy lately to get by digital convertor box before the signal went dead on my cable TV, but I when I show up at the cable office I am only the third person in line at a company that can be slower than the DMV.

I think, maybe I won't starve to death before I get my boxes. Wrong.

The first person is taking a really long time talking about his TiVo box problems and he finally gets a different remote.

I think, ah, soon.

BUT I discover that the lady in front of me is there to get digital convertors for an ENTIRE trailer park. YES! I kid you not, the ENTIRE trailer park. But she isn't the owner. She becomes agitated because things start to go south for her when another rep suddenly appears and lets her know that the 37 devices are going to be sent to the owner and it appears she has driven from Pampa (30 minutes away) for nothing, not even "her" devices.

She begins to make a claim that she didn't realize she was going to lose her service if she didn't get her boxes. I am thinking, No, I think the cable company has been terribly clear they were going to cut us off on the 29th, and I say so. I think this got me points with the cable teleBision lady behind the counter and I was getting my boxes veRy soon after.

Fargo should be crystal clear tonight.

I have started to watch Fargo only I have only watched one episode of what I think is series two. The drawback is that I am not entirely clear what is happening yet. I may be forced to watch series one at some point if I can't work out who is dead and what the link is to Sherlock Holmes's assistant, Dr Watson. We have to watch it after recording it, as this way we can avoid all the adverts as it is on Channel Four (channel four like their ads). British TV is entirely digital these days. which is fine as long as the signal is good. But if it gets a bit weak which it can here on rare occasions, it then vanishes entirely.

Shelly: Truly!

Rob: The first Fargo was a movie, and the current Fargo on FX is a 10 episode teleBision show with entirely different characters. It is scheduled to be one season only by design. There have been four episodes broadcast in the US, and I think it started five days later in the UK. I noticed an interesting pattern in the choice of directors for the episodes. A director gets to do two shows, then it goes to someone else, so far with no repeats, out through episode 8, from the list of episodes in Wikipedia.
