So our full day, by which I mean the day we weren't loopy from jet lag, we went to St Paul's, and did a wander around London proper. It was a good day. We hit our favorite spots - Millennial bridge for Charlie, The Globe for me, and the Tower Bridge for Dave.

Charlie and I were going to go to the top of the Shard, but it cost SO much money! 30 pounds, or something. Totally not worth it, so we didn't. I'm sharing this photo of the Shard cause I think it looks all clever and artsy. And a couple of family photos in front of the bridge.

The spot where we took those photos is another favourite of mine in London. It's a lovely area, even though the open air pub/bar thing that's there now inexplicably has fake palm trees. Still, it was a nice, warm day, people were all milling about, and it was good fun.

On Facebook I follow a Castle Feed. Not sure it's official, or what. They posted this article interviewing the new showrunners, who basically said that they are 'rebooting' the relationship to make it 'interesting' or something. I made this comment:

One thing I always liked about Castle is the writers and showrunner never felt like they had to 'reboot' the relationship to keep it interesting, and therefore Castle and Beckett always acted like real, grownup people. I'm a bit unhappy that the new showrunners are doing the classic 'oh, we're going to make it like the first seasons again.' We don't NEED the first seasons again. We've seen that already. If I wanted first season Castle and Beckett I'd watch my DVD.

So far over 50 people have agreed with me.

Makes me sad, because Castle was so good at not falling into the so-called Moonlighting trap. The relationship progressed naturally and logically, and they never insulted our intellegence by breaking them up for stupid reasons. I was happy when Castle got renewed for one more year, because I wasn't ready to say goodbye to it, but I should have worried when I heard the original showrunner was leaving.

It's too early to call, so I'm hoping they will turn it around, but I think Castle might be another in a long line of good shows that stayed too long past their sell-by date.

I'm also not sure I like the new Muppets, but that's a rant for another post.
