Endgame

After seeing several eps go past, and having run out of eps of... well. *Everything* else, I decided to give this show, Endgame, a shot.

Endgame's main character, Arkady Ballugan, is a chess Grand Master who has been struck by agoraphobia after seeing his fiance murdered outside their Vancouver hotel. Arkady is hilarious and awesome, and each of the episodes has managed to believably mix chess, puzzles, and fun. It also has great guest stars (Peter Winfield! As a heavy-drinking Russian cosmonaut in private spaceflight! Who is AWESOME too!), along with a wonderful supporting cast.

I pretty much always love Canadian TV, but this one is a jewel, and clever, too.

Couldn't agree more! And it has Ava from SPN - she should be on stuff I want to watch all the time, I love her voice for some reason.

I wrote this last night after only seeing maybe the first 15 minutes of PW's episode. I spent the rest of the hour wanting to come back and update with stuff like "Oleg! Bathtub! SEX TAPE! Muahahahahaha!" and fighting it back.

I'm about to start watching "XIII" mostly because of my largely inexplicable love of Stuart Townshend, which is all out of proportion to what I've actually seen him in.

*hugs*
