On a slightly happier note, I watched Veronica Mars tonight. God bless UPN for having no news service. The main storyline, while topical, pretty much bored me. As does the ongoing mystery surrounding Lily. She's not a compelling character. I don't give a rat's ass who did what to her.
On the other hand, I'm interested now more than ever in Logan's story. When he hands his father the belt and we see him lifting his shirt as his father closes the door? That's one of the most chilling moments I can recall seeing on TV.
I worried a bit about Harry Hamlin and his wife being cast as Logan's parents. It had 'stunt casting' written all over it. But, damn, if Harry didn't do a pretty effective job at playing a complete bastard. He's also got me formulating a theory that he's Lily's killer. ;)
