I grew up watching NCIS, version 2.0 (with Ziva the main lead). So it was really good fun going back to the very first season and re-watching the entire saga. Plus, getting to know Special Agent Kate Todd was like a breath of fresh air. The mixture of Agent Gibbs, Anthony DiNozzo and the forensics team creates a dynamic cast and on-screen family that you immediately fall in love with.
The first season of Bones was everything I would expect from a great first season, so the second was a little lacking. Definitely not one of my favourite ones, but then again, it had big shoes to fill and it was still incredibly forensically and thematically interesting. Plus, my favourite Bones relationship began to bloom, so that in and of itself makes the entire season worth watching.
Bones is one of my all-time favourite TV shows. I love the combination of humour, mystery and (mostly) correct science. For someone who has spent almost all of her adult life studying science, the fact that the forensics in a forensic show are mostly correct, and never blatantly wrong is a breath of fresh air. It was actually the TV show that made me decide to read Kathy Reichs’ Temperance Brennan series.
I've watched live shows by The Umbilical Brothers time now. The first time was to see KiDSHoW (not for kids), and more recently, I got the distinct pleasure of viewing Speedmouse. Words can't explain how hard I laughed.
I don’t normally attend many Fringe shows. Mostly because I don’t have much money (the life of a Uni student), and partly because no one ever wants to go with me. But last night I decided to do Fringe at RiAus. And you know what? I’m so glad that I did. It was amazing and funny and just an all-round wonderful night.
