I've really been enjoying watching Republic of Doyle - some of it is nostalgia, some of it is how beautifully it's shot, and some of it is just enjoying the characters. The acting and writing have gotten better every week, I think.

Last night's can be summed up for me as "Jody! Hee!" It's been fun, watching the show and recognizing the actors - it seems like anyone at all connected to the arts community on Newfoundland is going to end up on there eventually - but seeing Jody Richardson was cool. It seems to me that I went to a lot of Thomas Trio and the Red Albino concerts back in the early 90s. I thought it was Jody, as soon as he appeared on screen, and then the granny referred to him as the Red Albino, and that confirmed it. Hard to believe it's been almost 20 years since the BBQs in his backyard in downtown Toronto, before he went back home to Newfoundland.

And next week they have Victor Garber! Victor Garber!?! How the hell is a little show on the CBC landing someone like Victor Garber in a role?

And on a completely different topic, last night's American Idol was a little strange, in that the voting was...exactly right, as far as I'm concerned. For my money, Lacey was easily the worst performance of the previous night, and she was the one who got sent home. I actually think she shoulda gone home a week earlier, and then we might still have Lilly Scott around, but at least the result last night was right. I'd even say that Tim was the next worst performance, and he was also bottom three. Hopefully, people will actually vote based on performance for at least a little longer. *g*
