Phew – made it through The Return of the King. Got the DVD from the library, and watched it over three sessions. Was getting into it by the time they finally got rid of that ‘ol ring, but, just like the first one, I was relieved when it was finally over. Perversely, I find myself inclined to read the books again, now I can put faces to the characters.
On the other hand, Tru Calling has also finished, after only 2 series, which is a little surprising. I can also understand it, as the concept ran out of steam after episode 2 or 3, and not even the introduction of new elements could really rescue it. I do have a sense of unfinished business about it though, and I reckon they could squeeze one more series out of it.
