It was 74 degrees last weekend in Washington, DC. Some of the cherry blossoms poked their heads out. Daffodils were coming up in my neighbor's yard. I wonder what they'll do if January actually arrives.
I try not to talk about Boston Legal here too much, because William Shatner gets enough publicity on this site, but it's one of my favorite shows on television and this week was a perfect example of why. The main storyline was a serious, moving case about a woman doctor faced with dying patients in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. The secondary storyline involved an associate having to decide among all the lawyers at the firm who lust after her, ultimately deciding it would be silly to restrict herself to just one. Plus the cross-dressing lawyer is now a series regular, which probably means Denny Crane will hit on him to hilarious effect when he's dressed as a woman.
If only I could find a way to watch this year's Doctor Who Christmas special in some form other than an .AVI, because watching anything lengthy on my computer screen gives me a headache.

Executive producer Rick Berman denied that Paramount was unhappy with his concept for Star Trek XI, saying, "Unless there is something going on that I am not familiar with, the rumors are totally fictitious...neither statement, that something has been scuttled and that I have been asked to redevelop something, is true."
- Keating Hopeful of Fifth Season
Dominic Keating (Reed) said that he would be much more involved in upcoming episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise and was hopeful that there would be a fifth season: "I'd be very sad if this was our last year."
- 'Enterprise' DVDs Will Reportedly Include Outtakes
A report surfaced that outtakes and deleted scenes would be included in Enterprise DVD sets when they were released. The original series "blooper reels" have long been a highlight at conventions, but they were not included on that show's DVD sets.
