Reading, Listening, Watching  
Reading: Red Seas under Red Skies - I'd been avoiding this book because I loved its predecessor, The Lies of Locke Lamorra and had been told the sequel wasn't as good. I told my sister this when she gave me this book for Christmas and she said something to the effect of "yes, but it's still a good book". So far, yeah, it's good but not as good as lies. And, note, I've now caught up in my to read pile with books I was given last Christmas and it's not even this Christmas yet!.

Listening: I tried out a bunch of new podcasts of which the only one that has stuck is Stuff you Missed in History. This one's current status is "I'll listen to a couple more episodes and see". It's quirky and interesting but a lot more obviously commercial and slick than most of the podcasts I listen to, and I'm not sure how high my tolerance is for what seem to be, essentially, random historical anecdotes.

Watching: The Space Pirates for the Randomizer. So far this is proving more watchable than anticipated.

I'd be interested to see what you think of The Space Pirates. I recall I reviewed it twice, once saying that it's not great, but more interesting than its reputation, and the second time reconsidering a little and being more critical of it.

Going in with low expectations may have helped. B. was even giving me a fairly spirited defence of Milo Clancy's accent last night.

OK, I'm definitely looking forward to the review now!

There's not much to watch;p I didn't find 'The Space Pirates' as bad as its reputation when I watched it. I don't think it'd stand up to repeated re-watching though.

It's certainly quite surprising how little has happened in the first few episodes though also surprising that its not as terminally dull as it could be given how little is going on.
