And a good morning to each and every one of you. Had a good weekend?

Mine was filled with hours of Fable 2. Unless the storyline goes horrendously bad during the last part, this will be my Game of the Year.By far more fun than anything I've played this year, and I don't look forward to completing it at all. I'm just doing side-quests now to avoid having to advance the main story for the time being. Though a bit buggy (I've played half the game with a furniture upgrade message at the top of my screen), its just so incredibly charming and funny - though I can see it doing nothing for other people because some elements are probably a bit of an acquired taste. Unless its just horse armor, I will buy every bit of DLC they release for this game.

    True Blood

    Pretty good finale. I liked seeing Rene's transformation. He was a pretty great character all around. The accent thing was hilarious/awesome.

    I felt like they really went out of their way to leave a lot of questions unanswered. Which was strange, because there were things in the preview last week for the finale that weren't in the finale at all.

    Some examples:

    -What's up with the woman who took Tara in? -How did she know Sam? -Why could Rene "feel" Sookie inside his head? -What was Sam doing with the cash at the end? -It seemed implied that Bill drained Lafayette. Did he know he was selling V?

    Anyway, I enjoyed the show quite a bit and don't regret watching it whatsoever.

    Entourage

    Really enjoyed the finale, but it didn't quite make up for the suck of the entire season. Seeing the boys in New York City was oddly cathartic. Gus Van Sant and Marty Scorcese were awesome cameos.

    Anyway, if the next season of Entourage is the last, and they do manage to go back to the awesomeness of the earlier seasons, I'll be more than happy.

    Didn't see Dexter or Cali yet. Were those finales too?
