SPN and a pic of Dorothy and Peter...  
Okay, so I finally gave in and have started to watch Supernatural.

I don't know...

I mean the guys are cute and I do like me some X-Files type TV, but the writing hasn't grabbed me yet. The brothers are good together and this so far is my favorite bit:

Sam: "When I told Dad I was scared of the thing in my closet, he gave me a .45."
Dean: "What was he supposed to do?"
Sam: "I was nine years old. He was supposed to say, "Don't be afraid of the dark!"

Well, I'm only 4 episodes in so I'll see how it goes but I've heard from some other sources that Lost might have been a better route to go...

And look!


I found the Life photo of Dorothy Stratten and Peter Bogdanovich (about a month before her murder).

I love this pic of her. I remember seeing it oh so long ago and just came across it.

She really was beautiful but sadly, had lousy taste in men. To put it mildly.

See? I decided to stop looking at it like House and Dexter (and even Six Feet Under) and just went with it. The beginning is dull and the boys are wooden but they do get better and the plots can be fun.

How could the show improve? Better writers (there are so many scenes where I would love to write the dialogue). The actors need some more coaching but they have the look.

I've heard the wank in the fandom is a bit much. :(

Dorothy Stratton was the Playmate of the Year in 1980. She was only 21 I believe at the time. She was about to leave her abusive husband/svengali/pimp for Bogdanovich when her slimebal hubby shot her in the head and then turned it on himself. It was quite the story at the time in Hollywood (where I'm originally from) but not as big as the Sharon Tate/Manson fiasco.
