It's been a good day today. I mean, I didn't get any writing done at all, due mostly to my getting up two hours later than planned, but had fun. One of my friends came round, we made pizza so that I could show her how to do it from scratch, making the bread and everything, and then we watched the Dead Man on Campus DVD that Jennie got me for my birthday.

We also watched Demons, that new program with Gene Hunt Philip Glenister. Not sure about that one. Going in, I had absolutely no idea what to expect, knowing only what I had seen on the adverts. The fact that it was on at 7.20 didn't bode well though. And I'd heard Gene Hunt's American accent in the ad and thought "wft, why?" But it wasn't that bad (the show, not the accent).

Don't get me wrong, it's not like it isn't a rehash of every similar program ever made before it, but it's done at least in a halfway decent way. The American accent grated on me a bit though. That's got to be for one of two reasons, either it wasn't very good (and I'm no expert, but it didn't sound that great to me) or it just sounded odd when I've got so used to the other one.

Now, I'm in no fit state to go into a deep and rambling analysis of the episode, especially as I'm not even sure of how much I like it, but I will say this: I enjoyed it enough to be planning on watching the next episode, and that is much more than I was able to say after watching the first episode of that other ITV supernatural-y show (that for some reason I can't remember the name of). This has interesting characters, a fairly cool (albeit many times recycled) plot and just the right amount of humour. It's just a shame that I've seen it all before.
