Tonight I picked up volumes 1-3 of Wildstorm Comic's's <i>Freddy Vs. Jason Vs. Ash</i>. Wildstorm needs to hire a proof-reader worse than <i>Geek Monthly</i> does, because this appears on the very first page: "Take it from me, there's nothing you can do can take away the nightmares once you've lived through them." To quote a very wise man: "Doesn't anybody there <i>read</i> this sh*t?!" I've finished one of them so far, but can't say that I'm very impressed. Licensed comics suck, I guess.
Last night we watched the season premiere of CBS's fan-saved miracle child <i>Jericho</i>, which airs Tuesday February 12th. I really, really loved the first season of <i>Jericho</i> and was a little irked that they canceled it, but I wasn't about to mail any nuts or anything. I've been pretty excited for the new season to start, so I jumped at the chance to see the first few episodes before they air. Anyway, I don't have a lot to say about the season premiere because I was completely distracted by the fact that the show now has that cheap video look that <i>Dr. Who</i>, <i>Torchwood</i> and American soap operas tend to have. Everything is lit too strongly and looks like a set. I know CBS was strapped for cash, but was this really necessary? We'll be watching episodes 2 and 3 this evening, so hopefully I can get past the look. I'm really not sure why it bothers me so much, though.
