Odds and Ends

+ Nathan Fillion's new comedy-drama series "Castle" will make its debut on Monday, March 9 at 10 o'clock on ABC. This one's gotta last more than 13 episodes, right?

+ Also this March comes the return of "Reaper," on St. Patrick's Day. It will be introduced by leprechauns. Not really. Maybe a drunk Boston Celtics fan but that's still unconfirmed.

+ How awesome is this? A do-it-yourself R2-D2 dreidel -- or "droidel," as they call it. There's instructions and everything. I'm absolutely going to build one of these.


+ Remember that cute German polar bear Knut that everyone (including me) was ga-ga over last year? He's still cute but now he's brown and apparently he's the Corey Haim of the German zoo world, causing trouble and wreaking havoc.

The Germans are kicking him out but it looks like other zoos are lining up to adopt him, so all is well. I think he looks cute as a brown bear....

+ ETA: Last night on CBC's "The Hour," Dave Foley announced that Kids in the Hall have signed a deal with the Canadian network to produce an eight-part special called "Death Comes to Town." Can't wait!

When you do the Golden Age of Hot Canadian Actors...Nathan Fillion should lead the list.

so are you jewish? or do you just really like Artoo?

Liz said...

Not Jewish. Not anything, really, more just an uncertain agnostic who likes dreidels...and Artoo!

but but but.. Why did the bear turn brown? I don't understand!

Liz said...

Crone51, that's a really good question. I have no idea why he turned brown. Is it like a polar bear molting thing? I'm going to have to do some research...

Are we sure he's not just really really dirty?

The bear, not Nathan. Just, you know, for clarification.

The best part of the Knut article? "He was branded a psychopath by one zoologist." Colbert was right! They are godless killing machines!

Liz said...

LOL!

Okay, I gotta respond to your "twitter" - you HAVE to check out Shatner's talk show - catch the Tim Allen one - I swear the Shat is channeling James Lipton - it's a really interesting interview, and Shatner is practically low-key - I can't wait to see what he does next...

Did you see "Leverage" tonight with Christian Kane? I wouldn't have tuned in except that I saw him on the commercial. I didn't hate it and it even made the hubby and me laugh a few times. Hope they let him sing in an episode!
