I wasn't home last night to see it myself, but Harlan Ellison called me to tell me I was on Jeopardy! reruns. If your local station does Jeopardy! reruns on the weekend, check next week. I have no idea if they are running all five of my days of regular play or not, but if they are, I'll be on for the next four weekends. I was disappointed when I seemed to be skipped over between the runs of two other people who were on the Tournament of Champions with me, but I wasn't the only one who got skipped. I'm hoping that we'll see Col. Dave after my run. And I'm also hoping that last year's Tournament of Champions gets its two week run during the weekday Jeopardy! reruns this summer. Original episodes generally end this week or next.
The reason why we weren't home is that we decided to catch Green Lantern last night. Len had seen it already and I decided to give it a try despite the critical hashing because I liked what we saw up in San Diego. Also, I wanted a chance to see one of Len's characters up on the screen, which he did not see when he went to the 3-D screening. Sometimes, it just takes two sets of eyes, because Len did not see Walt Simonson in the Valhalla scene of Thor on his own either.
First of all, the movie is getting a bum rap. It's quite entertaining and Ryan Reynolds is charming. It's not X-men: First Class, but few superhero films are.
We saw Galius Zed in one of the early GL Corps scenes peeking out from behind Hal Jordon, so you can pick up your GL Galius Zed action figure and help pay for Casa Wein-Valada.
