+ More good news for Douglas Adams' fans: it sounds like the BBC is creating a TV dramedy based on the author's Dirk Gently detective novels. I'm still catching up on the whole "Hitchhiker's Guide" thing, so I've no idea if this is a "wahoo!" moment or an "eh" moment, but here it is nonetheless!
+ Apparently, Nathan Fillion would like to revive the 1980s classic TV series, "The Greatest American Hero." Which, for all my bitching and moaning about the lack of original ideas out there, is one thing I would absolutely love to see someday. I adored that show as a kid and I adore looking at Nathan Fillion as an adult, so it's a win-win, right?
+ Would you like to participate in the democratic process today? Then why not vote on vampires? The Paley Center is running a poll on favorite TV vampires. So far, Spike is running away with it but it looks like those "True Blood" boys could make up some (unhallowed) ground.
+ I kind of love this list on "10 Latin Phrases You Pretend to Understand" because I pretend to understand words I don't understand all the time. (What?)
+ The New York Times has an interesting debate on how the brain responds to e-books, with scientists and academics chiming in with their opinions.
+ Tonight marks the beginning of festivities celebrating the 40th anniversary of Monty Python. All of the remaining Pythons will be gathering in New York's Ziegfeld Theatre this evening for a restrospective, which you can watch live online here. And then on Sunday, ICF launches part one of its six-part documentary, "Monty Python: Almost the Truth," beginning at 9 p.m. EST.
