Settling in at the new office. There's new challenges and new stuff and new perks. It feels good.
I've been kind of introspective lately, mostly about Sci-Fi. Ever since Battlestar Galactica ended, I've been jonesing for more Sci-Fi. I've thought about downloading some Farscape, a series which I briefly had an affinity for, but did not follow closely.
I've also been watching The Next Generation reruns a lot on Space. It's always bittersweet, because I'm remembering what an excellent show it was. TNG was on when I was a teen, but watching it as an adult, it seems even better.
Just now I turned on Spike to catch the ending of Return of the Jedi, and couldn't help feeling bitter about how Lucas handled the sequels. It's sad to feel like the best days of Sci-Fi are behind us. Even with all its socio-political complexities, BSG couldn't hold a candle to a show like TNG.
Hopefully when Mad Men comes back this weekend, I'll be sustained for a while.

The best part about tuning in to catch the end of a movie on Spike is getting to watch the beginning of the same movie in the next timeslot.
