Weekend Update

Fairly uneventful weekend — and the first that I didn’t work through in about a month and a half.

  • Watched Doctor Who – The Planet of the Dead, which aired in the UK on Saturday. Fun, but nothing particularly “special” about it. Felt like a mid-season episode (which, really, I suppose it is). Michelle Ryan was a nice short-term companion (and in a full season, would’ve made for a great long-term one). Some *very* interesting foreshadowing of what’s to come (in the form of a prophecy of sorts).
  • Major GeekScore at Half-Price Books on Sunday: Found still-in-shrinkwrap DVDs of Filmation’s Lone Ranger & Zorro cartoons, as well as one of the major loves of my childhood: Jason of Star Command!
  • Saw a bunch more Doc Savage and Shadow reprints at Half-Price, but didn’t have a list of the ones I already own handy, so I had to walk away.
  • Finished getting caught up on the past year’s worth of Green Lantern, Green Lantern Corps and Immortal Iron Fist. Good stuff — I’m not as big a fan of the new creative team on Iron Fist as I was of the launch team, but it’s still enjoyable, with nice easter eggs here and there for martial arts film fans (Example: A flashback to the Old-West version of Iron Fist, whose name is Kwai Jun-Fan — combining the name of Carradine’s character from the “eastern Western” Kung Fu, Kwai Chang Caine, with the Cantonese name of Bruce Lee, Lee Jun-Fan).

Finishing up some work today and tomorrow (including developmental stuff on Far West), before heading to Las Vegas for the GAMA Trade Show.
