I read the first two GoF books before I saw the first season of GoF.
Perhaps that's why I'm not really impressed by the tv series. It's often difficult to beat the book version. (not that the books will go on my list of favorite books but it's still better than the series). I think that the tv series opts too much for the gratuitous scenes with not enough decent story telling to back it up. Perhaps Andreea will have better luck reading the books after she has seen the tv series. It doesn't work the other way round.
Yesterday evening, I saw the new tv series The Fall (it's a 5-parts series, I believe). The serial killer is played by a former Calvin Klein underwear model, the detective is played by Gillian Anderson
(it's good to see her back on tv). Quality combination, that.
On GM, Borg is quoted as having said something rather flattering of Nadal. Of course, this is reason to bash the hell out of the Swede, because after all, what does Borg know about tennis that the MTF experts in GM don't know, right?
