3rd time's the charm?

Subject: Noir
Blogger has been "bloggered" these past few days, and it has eaten 2 of my attempts at summing up the other stuff I watched over the weekend. It almost completely swallowed my "Incredibles" review, but it somehow appeared out of thin air hours after I wrote it. Now that it's behaving better, I'll try again.

"Bubblegum Crisis" (original series) disc 2 -- I dunno. It just didn't seem as fun as the first disc. Nor did it seem to advance in any way. In fact, I didn't even make it all the way through all the episodes. I'm pretty sure I was in a good mood and all, but it just wasn't doing anything for me at all. I might give the next disc a shot, or I might just skip to the more recent sequel series. But overall, I'm not really interested in pursuing this any further unless I'm totally bored.

To make up for bailing out early, I dug out disc 2 of "Kino's Journey" for a quick re-watch there. Ahh, that's better.

Also on the rewatching front, since the "Meine Liebe" ressurection is still slow to get off the ground, "Tsubasa" hasn't started yet, and I'm waiting for "Madlax" to show up, well, I've gotten into a bit of "Bee-Train withdrawl". So I started rewatching "Avenger". I tell ya, this one really grows on me. I don't know when the DVDs are finally going to get released, but it's definitely on my "automatic buy" list.

And speaking of "automatic buy", I had pre-ordered "Samurai Champloo" in hopes that it would have shown up on the 29th, which was yesterday, but it hasn't even shipped yet! Argh! The Criterion release of Kurosawa's "Kagemusha" did ship, at least, but it didn't show up on time either. Maybe today.

I've got some TV program thoughts coming up next, if Blogger doesn't eat those too...
