Castle

Oh snowy ground, where have you gone?

Seriously, it's April. There are still plenty of scattered snow pockets, but the majority of the ground is bare grass due to the continued high temperatures (today: spring jacket, no gloves in late afternoon). Supposedly those will plummet by the end of the week, but at this point, we've vanquished about a third of normal winter.

Made a 3-day project of it and finished the first season of Castle! All the episodes sort of blurred together in one happy whir, so I don't know if I have a favorite (except that the pilot still stands out sharply) or any comments I can attribute to individual eps, but here are a whole bunch of general, random impressions:

Finally, since once a year or so I page through old tags and am reminded of this show's existence...surely Secret Life of the American Teenager reached the pinnacle of insanity in season 3, right, when it decided to let kids get married and/or live together prior to high school graduation? Mostly right, but also, according to Wikipedia here's what season 4/part 1 chose to best that with: surprise, Ricky is the class valedictorian. Sure. That's in line with every scene ever shown. Apparently everyone on the show is somehow even stupider than previously assumed.
