Summer shows are arriving, winter shows are ending.

Was asked in comments if I've seen Prometheus.

Not yet, but I really want to see it.

I've avoided all reviews and trailers, so don't tell me anything!

I won't be going to 3-D Imax here in Bend though. Not worth it. The Imax effect seems minimal for paying 16.00 per ticket.

I've heard stories that some theaters aren't using bright enough lights, and it just seems unfocused and not very sharp.

Anyone else feeling that?

Meanwhile, did it seem to anyone else that True Blood has jumped the shark? I mean for a jumped-shark-in-the-first place kind of show.

No story development, new and random characters, gratuitous nudity and violence, (not that I'm complaining), abrupt story shifts, inexplicable character motivations?

Meanwhile, The Killing, has been driving me crazy with the way it's drawing out the conclusion. Gave us a clear indication of the guilty party in the penultimate episode -- which is why I don't think it is probably him.


He's the fixer, so he's probably there to clean up the mess?

I do kind of like they've followed the grieving parents for two years -- (three or four weeks in the show). But, it's the mystery that brings you back.

Unless they change that next year -- like resolve a mystery in every few episodes, I'm done.

It's been driving me crazy for two years, but yet I keep watching. Do you REALLY think they're going to reveal the killer next Sunday?
