So the first two episodes of Doctor Who were part of a two-part story. Castle did the same bloody thing. And we - that is my husband, my Brilliant Friend [ profile] kirathaune and myself - have been watching Jonathan Creek (blame binge-watching QI) and the episode we watched yestereday was a 2-part one. And then Bloody Doctor Who went and did it again with this week's episode. Arugh! I hate waiting.

At least this week's Castle wasn't a 2-parter. Although I'm less than thrilled with the whole story-arc thing. Still, the episode was fun, so I'm not too fussed.

In non-television news, unfortunately Charlie got laid off from his first ever job. I hope he's not taking after me in this case. The place he was working is very new, and they just can't afford bussers at the moment. I'm unsurprised, because he was only working 1 night a week. I have a feeling they kept him as long as they did because they liked him.

Fortunately Charlie's been working a couple days a week a my office. I quite enjoy having him around. It made me giggle a bit to myself, remembering the times I had to take him into my places of work for various reasons, and now he's here again, only this time as a grown-up!

Hopefully he'll find a new job soon. He's looking. He likes working. I know he likes having his own money.

Oh, I got my first royalty payment. Less than $20, but still. Go me.

Congrats on the royal check!

Where have you been able to find Jonathan Creek? I'd love to watch it to see Alan Davies (yes, QI is is responsible in my case as well), but I can't find it anywhere online.

Definitely not from a website like Pirate Bay. That would be wrong.

ETA: I asked my husband - he had most of the series on DVD, so that's where we got those, but the more recent one he said he got from the internet.

If you want, I can see if he can zip file them or something, and I can email them to you.

DW is almost all two-parters this year -- there are only two episodes that aren't (one of them is a one-man show for Peter Capaldi, which, awesome).

Oh, urgh. At least now I know, and can be prepared. One man show with Peter Capaldi sounds TOTALLY awesome.

I need a 12th Doctor icon.

You most certainly do need a 12th Doctor icon!

Hope Charlie isn't upset about his job finishing

Cheers. Yeah, he's okay. He seemed to take it in stride. Hopefully he'll find a slightly more stable job soon.

Too bad he can't work in your shop, LOL!

Sorry to hear Charlie lost his job, but I'm so happy to hear he's doing so well! I'm sure he'll find something else in no time!

By the way, I'm so excited you're back on LJ! Hopefully you'll stop by my LJ and comment, too.
