1. I need not have worried, of course. Peter Capaldi is just as good as we were all expecting him to be.
2. I am deeply bummed about the (surprisingly unceremonious) dismissal of the secondary team from Mythbusters. And not just because I have a terrible crush on Grant Imahara. Although I do.
3. On the DVD front, I've now started season two of Dead Like Me, and I've come to enjoy it enough that I'm feeling miffed that there isn't all that much left to watch. Up until now, I had not realized what a sad deficit of Mandy Patinkin there has been in my life.
