...The Next Day

     It's funny; I slept most of a day and most of a night and I'm still tired.  I could dive right back in for another six or eight hours and not mind a bit.  It's not an option.

     Fans of FX's irreverent animated spy-spoof Archer will perhaps be amused that in the second episode of the second season of Danger Man, there's a semi-retired British spy named Edmund Archer, who handles his fate with much the same off-the-cuff aplomb as Sterling Archer, and perhaps as little regard for the stakes.  Danger Man, the Patrick McGoohan series that preceded The Prisoner, is interesting in its own right.  McGoohan plays a secret agent more polished the James Bond -- and with coldly duplicitous superiors who might very easily have shipped him off to the strange, sunny, holiday gulag of The Prisoner.  --Yes, guess what I watched, waiting for the ibuprofen to kick in when I woke up with a headache in the middle of the night?

"fate witch"? Sounds like something that should either be burned at the stake or have a bucket of water thrown on it.

HEH! That's why I despise spell checkers. They always let more mistakes pass than they catch. Always proof read before hitting submit, advice I'd be wise to follow myself.
