Misfitted valentine


"a new union — salty British street humour with whizz-bang special effects" The Times

I've just finished watching the first two seasons of Misfits. I haven't been this excited about a television show since Community...or Mad Men... or Better off Ted...or The Wire...or Weeds...okay so I watch a lot of telly then.

Blue Valentine promo poster

I watched Blue Valentine last night - the film is an unrelentingly emotional rollarcoaster - it is not advised to go on a roller coaster after eating a family lebanese banquet for lunch followed by a Korean BBQ banquet for dinner.

I felt a little queasy during the scenes of domestic turmoil. But I think that could have been the brilliant acting and not the excessive baba ganoush.
