Entertainment Expectations

Okay, so I’m bored. I’m going to write a little about a few different shows, books, etc. I would suggest reading only those you are familiar with… it’d be even more dull otherwise. These are only my opinions and they probably DO CONTAIN SPOILERS.

The Office (t.v. show on NBC)
We’ve recently become interested in this, watching the first two seasons over the last couple of weeks. There was a British version, but I’ve never seen it. I think it’s funny that several of the characters names are the same as the actors name who plays that character. I hope Pam and Jim do get together and get married. I was a little sad to see Toby show interest in Pam. Toby is sweet and you have to feel for him, but it’s gotta be Jim with Pam. It’s a funny show… after a while even Michael grows on you.

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (book)
Here’s the deal: I think Snape is still good. He did what he had to do, and I think Dumbledore knew it was coming. Besides, Harry depended on Dumbledore too much. Could he have gotten the locket / horcrux without Dumbledore? I think not. It’ll be good for him to go on without the security blanket. I just hope he’s not a jerk to Malfoy. Him I do feel sorry for – I hope he can get away from the Death Eaters. I guess my only other thought on this right now is about R.A.B. (who had already stolen the real horcrux locket). I think it was Sirus’ brother (Regulus Black). I would rather that be the case than some new character.

Gattaca (movie)
I think this is my favorite movie. You should see it if you haven’t. I especially like the doctor (who works for Gattaca).

Dean Koontz (author)
He writes well enough, but has a happy ending problem. No matter what happens in the book, he creates a beyond-best-possible-scenario ending. For example (a REAL example… I won’t tell you which book, but so many have dogs this doesn’t give it away), the dog saves the day, but seems to have been killed. Flash forward about 6 months, the dog is alive! And has found a girl dog (yes, I know there is another word for that)! And they have really cute puppies! Are you kidding me? I can handle happy endings for books, but let’s try to stick with a little realism here. And can we please cut back on the reoccurring dogs-save-the-world theme? Please?
