Good thing I had my DVR set for it; while I’D planned to watch it, Hurricane Irene had other plans. Irene was all but past Raleigh by Saturday night, but after very little sleep the night before, and feeling very discombobulated by the constant “power is on, power is off, power is on, power is off” situation that we had Saturday afternoon (took 45 minutes for our cable box/DVR to reboot; no sooner than it would try to restart, before it could finish, the power would go out again. Then come back on, then go out, then come on, etc. and so forth. For 45 minutes. Frustrating.)
Anyhoo, after the power finally came back on to stay last night, finally managed to finish watching Haven (great show on SyFy, if you’ve never seen it), then Episode 8 of Torchwood Miracle Day (Yeah, Jack, blame the ‘stache in that pic on it being ‘The Seventies’! LOL Loved that Ianto got a mention too), squeezed in that last episode of Wilfred from Thursday, then it was time for the start of the new season of Doctor Who. Yay!
Except that with all the weather excitement over the weekend, I dozed off on the couch before I got to the first commercial break (although DID wake up JUST long enough to catch Rory and Amy’s Motion Comic in enough time to check into it on Get Glue and earn yet another sticker that I’m sure I’ll never have sent to me. I’m sure watching me fumble with the app on my phone to check in while I was still half asleep was probably hilarious, lol). Saw bits and pieces during the rest of the night, but not enough that anything made a whole lot of sense. So in retrospect, setting the DVR to record what I was supposedly watching was a really good idea.
(Although a note for anyone else who missed the new Who due to Irene or any other reason, I see that BBCA is repeating both that and the Companion special that followed on Monday night. Yay.)
In the mean time, for anyone who missed the short animated Motion Comic that aired before the first commercial break, I uploaded it for a friend and thought I’d post it here too.
