The weekend watch

Subject: Noir
Luckily for me, "Paranoia Agent", as excellent as it is, doesn't cause a "Post-P.A. Syndrome" like a marathon of "Noir" would.

Last night I had my usual pair of GreenCine rentals, and both were continuations of what I've already been watching all along. First up was disc 3 of "Nadia: Secret of the Blue Water". Not bad; the story continues, though it doesn't really go anywhere except to establish a few clues that I assume will be answered later. Otherwise, the characters are enjoyable to watch, and the overall scenario is enough to maintain a minimal interest. Not particularly challenging in any way, but light entertainment.

Next was the last disc of "Miami Guns", which was, well, okay. Still mildly amusing, with halfway decent action, but it's a good thing that was the last disc because it was starting to wear thin. Overall I'm glad I saw it, but I won't be buying it.

Finally, this morning was my Sunday morning "Tsubasa Chronicle" fix. Again, not a bad episode, with some interesting moments, and a pretty decent relevation as to how Syaoran is missing from Sakura's memories. As far as the overall pace, I'm finding that relaxing with tea and breakfast while watching it on a Sunday morning really helps me deal with it better. Though I am kind of secretly hoping that as it progresses, it gets progressively more intense. But I'm not going to hold my breath at this point.
