I'm supposed to be writing, but ...

I got an early Christmas present from a couple of dear friends. Mary Ellen gem65 and Steve - cygnusx1 on KSite sent me three seasons of the Pretender. I managed to get season one. So I've been having a bit of a Pretender marathon.

I cannot emphasise how much I love this show. It not only has an intelligent premise it has creepy villains and a hero with a dark side, not to mention a flawed heroine who you're just never really sure which side she's actually on.

I wish the network hadn't cancelled this show after four seasons. Still, there are the books to look forward to - I still have to get a copy of the first one. Then there's the graphic novels.

As much as I love Smallville, there is something about The Pretender that keeps me going back to it. Superheroes are all very well, but I have to admit I do like a hero who uses his brain rather than his brawn. I guess that's why I liked Macgyver in the beginning.

And I do get a kick out of Jarod's dark side too. Let's face it, some of the things he does, to Miss Parker for one, border on cruelty.

I agree with you about what you said about a hero using his brain. That's why I liked 'Macgyver.'

We're both glad that you loved your early Christmas gift. Of course you know why we sent it early in the first place. ;)

On a sadder note, Steve's cousin passed away on Saturday. We don't have any details yet but most likely the funeral will be around Tuesday. Unfortunately I'll be back home for the week helping Mom pack as well as my stuff. Not really looking forward to it. *sighs*

I'll be taking the train back home tomorrow morning. *sighs*
