For those interested, the third season of the excellent show 'Perception' starts tonight (Tuesday) at 10:00 on TNT.  That's the 'cop' show with an FBI agent (Rachel Leigh Cook) who works with a consultant (Eric McCormack) who is a neuroscience specialist, and who is a (usually) high-functioning schizophrenic.

To dispel some of the misconceptions about head injuries you have developed from watching movies and TV, I wrote this: ...Some Information on Head Injury Effects

Danger Mouse Reboot Gets 52-Episode Order, Horrible Histories Writer
Quote from: Brendon Connelly
It’s been in the works for a while but the official announcement dropped overnight. Danger Mouse is being rebooted by Ireland’s Boulder Media, and Horrible Histories‘ Ben Ward is on board to write the scripts.

We don’t know – yet – who will be providing the voices, but that’s already some serious talent behind the camera… er, drawing boa… er… computer.

Some things will be updated, of course, and DM’s new eyepatch is going to be more Google Glass than Arrr! Me Hearties.

The original Cosgrove Hall series ran for about ten years and was, quite regularly, brilliant. When a nostalgia weekend on CITV led to some repeats a year or so ago, Danger Mouse gave the channel its highest ever ratings.

Fraggle Rock and Knightmare did very well too, you know. I’m just saying.

A run of 52 new Danger Mouse episodes, eleven minutes apiece, will screen on CBBC from next year.

What is CBBC, can I watch that here, and why is it not next year already?

Children's BBC.  It's the BBC's kids channel.

Depends on how high-profile the show is, I guess.  Teletubbies was a CBBC show originally, I believe.  So is In the Night Garden, which will guarantee to enchant a child and put adults to sleep with how relaxing it is.

Yep.  When Bruce Wayne returned, rather than asking Dick Grayson to return to being Nightwing, he asked him to stick around Gotham as Batman (with Damien) while Bruce acted as a globe-trotting Batman as the leader of Batman Incorporated.  I always thought it was a cool idea.  After all, it's so common for there to be only one super-hero at a time, but it makes sense that mystery man Batman could have more than one of himself to get shit done.  Shame that Dick went back to being Nightwing, though I head Kyle Higgins Nightwing run was one of the New 52's brighter spots.

The Wonder Years is finally coming to DVD!  It will all be in one big collection and most shockingly will feature ALL of the original music as it was broadcast.  It will go for $300 and will contain all 115 episodes.
