Due to pressing work concerns, I was unable to go to confession for Holy Week this year. So much for being a devout Catholic.
As is tradition, most of the long weekend was spent watching a whole lot of stuff:
– I’ve been keeping pace with the episodes so far. The thing about 24: people die. A lot of them. And amazingly, Jack Bauer gets off every single time. They should have a season where Jack Bauer dies around episode ten or something (or at least gets hospitalized and taken out of the game) That would shock people. Still a very entertaining show.
– still need to watch the latest episode (18), luckily they decided to take a break so I can catch up. Heroes started out strong and with solid writing, but the plots and subplots started to get a bit messy after Peter saved Clair. It looks like they’re finally getting on track again these last few episodes though.
– I finally caught up to Kaizoku Fansubs, having started watching One Piece from the very beginning last January. I had to skip most of the fillers though to catch up. And from the pirated DVDs I’ve seen in some stores, there’s probably some other group subbing One Piece that are already at least eighty episodes ahead of KF. That being said, I think I’ll follow their pace for now, as their subbing is of really good quality. One Piece is an awesome series and continues to be entertaining. The best arc in the series so far has been the Alabasta arc, and I’m looking forward to Movie 7 which supposedly covers this arc.
– a new series that people at the office got to know from Jump Ultimate Stars for the NDS. It’s mostly a parody/comedic anime, often breaking the fourth wall and using a lot of puns, references, toilet humor and visual gags. There are some really funny bits that made me laugh out loud, but it’s a bit of hit-or-miss unlike, say, Excel Saga, which would have me laughing a good 70-80% of the time.
As I said, uneventful.
