Well, here we go again. I stayed up way too late last night. I dug into my set of The Fall Guy DVDs, watched the pilot ep and the two extras. One of those extras had interviews with Lee Majors and Heather Thomas.
It was a shock. Granted it's been almost thirty years, but Thomas looks like she's had some not-too-well-done work done on her face. Either that or the lighting and make-up were really bad.
Anyway, it's still a fun show to watch.
Phil and Kaja Foglio's Girl Genius (link at left) continues to be fun. It's updated MWF and is one of my regular reads. It bills itself as "Adventure! Romance! Mad Science!", and it delivers. It's the story of Agatha Clay, who turns out to be the last living relative of the Heterodyne Boys, legendary mad scientists and Good Guys of major renown that...well, it would take too long to explain. It all starts here.
The entire comic is available online. It's proved so popular that, earlier this year, the site used its entire bandwidth allotment for two months running. At the end of the month, you couldn't get into the site...and this happened TWICE. They since went to a better service and that ended the problem (matter of fact, they upgraded after the first time and were surprised when it happened the second).
You can purchase collections of the comic from their online store.
Here is today's page. And, like most of Phil Foglio's heroines, Agatha is definately female. For those of you who are fans of Foglio's other work, there's some sexy moments but no nudity. You want that, go get this comic.
If you're a fan of the steampunk genre and/or a fan of Phil Foglio, go take a look.
That's it for today. More tomorrow.
Be seeing you.
