Autumn approaches

TIFF closes tomorrow, so I went down for one last film tonight: Bright Days Ahead. My TIFF movies this year have all had a romantic bent, which is a nice change from the really creepy and rather bloody Japanese serial killer movie I watched the last time I went to the festival. (I did not end up spending the day downtown the way I'd planned. When I woke up this morning and saw just how cold it was supposed to get tonight, I decided the better plan was to go home and pick up some warmer clothing, including a winter coat. Given how long I spent lined up outside, I think it was the right decision.)

Haven was back tonight! Except in Canada, where they've decided not to show it until December. Yeah, I'm not sure what they're thinking either. It's a little frustrating. But apparently we get Craig Olejnik as a guest star this season! It'll be interesting to see him in something besides The Listener. (Incidentally, the season finale The Listener aired a couple of weeks ago, thus concluding a rather disappointing season. I love the characters and I enjoyed some of the episode premises, but the writing and dialogue just weren't there for me. I'm not sure exactly what's wrong, but it's missing something.)

It's exciting to see the new television season starting up! The three shows I'm planning to pick up this fall are Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Almost Human, and Sleepy Hollow, but I'm also waiting to see if anything else gets rave reviews. (I'm also curious to see how new fandoms get incorporated among tag wranglers. And how Yuletide gets handled. Interesting times!)

Plans for this weekend: transcribe some interviews, visit with my sister and nephew, do some cleaning, and sort out some health insurance claims. Such excitement! Oh, and maybe I'll work on my Being Human US/Canada primer for [community profile] tv_talk. That'll be fun!
