It’s Friday! That means it’s 12 Monkeys night tonight, and I cannot wait to watch tomorrow (no way I can stay awake till 10 pm… well I can, but I’m not really functional…). And, this week it seems Grimm is back. Yay! Lastly, while on the topic of TV, I’ve been watching a show called The Returned, an adaptation of the French series Les Revenants (France). It had been shown on Space here in Canada last year, in French with subtitles, but I gave up on it. The French vocabulary is a bit different from French Canadian, and I find it tricky to read and watch at the same time.
Anyhoo, it’s been adapted (for better or for worse), and by accident I caught the first two episodes last week, which were the two episodes I’d seen in French. It seems very faithful to the original and is very creepy. The atmosphere is very similar to The Intruders, to give you an idea, but perhaps the pacing is just a weensy bit quicker. But not much. It’s dark, brooding, and includes a smattering of horror, but not over the top. Seems to be very much a character-driven show, which I like… :-).
Back to my brief art update. The image inserts are the commissions completed this week – I back on commissions now, so for those of you waiting, merci mille fois pour votre patience, and I’ll be sending scans to you soon (or have already). Happy weekend!
