I Can See Clearly Now...

As I figured, the doldrums passed quickly.

Yesterday being a good day of entertainment certainly helped.  In Time was great, Voltron Force tickled me with zombie ninja scientists (Ha!) and references to the vehicle force, and I watched the conclusion to the week-long miniseries of Clue.  Yes, based on the board games, and no, not a funny take like the classic movie.  They actually played things pretty straight.

It was a pretty cool ride, really.  Nothing great, definitely geared towards young adults, and the mysteries weren't THAT deep or complex, but had some good use of references to the board game that did get a bit TOO in your face, but for the most part they were restrained or appropriate.  I was surprised at how well it turned out, honestly, considering they were adapting a board game's concepts.  And it worked, for what it was.  I was grinning big during the finale with the kinda epicly cool setup for things to come, and I sincerely hope they DO come, since the universe they've built is intriguing enough in its own right.

Huh.  I didn't intend to babble about the Clue miniseries that much, but I guess it tickled part of my brain.  They're reairing the whole thing tomorrow on...The Hub?  I think.  Worth checking out if you don't mind watching something more teenish than my usual fare, and got 2 and a half hours to blow. ;)
