This (mostly) Just In...

Generation Kill Premieres Sunday - Wire fans, rejoice! David Simon and Ed Burns return to HBO with this 7 part miniseries about American soldiers in Iraq. Garney says the book is pretty great. I haven't been this excited about a war movie since Stop Loss promised copious shots of a shirtless Ryan Phillippe (which it failed to produce. Bastards). P.S. If you live in SD and want to check it out, we can have viewing parties (this means you, Liz).

The Office Webisodes are Back - After last summer's mystery of the missing money, Kevin, Oscar, Darryl and Stanley are here this summer with Kevin's Loan to fill the Office shaped hole in your heart. The first installment premieres today at 12 PST (that's 3pm for you east coasters, but I'm sure you knew that. If you didn't, you're a moron. Sorry. It needed to be said).

Robert Downey Jr. is Sherlock Holmes - Everyone's new favorite superhero will become Sherlock Holmes for Mr. Madonna, Guy Ritchie. Here's hoping it's good, unlike every other Guy Ritchie movie.

Teenager Finds Baby Bat in Bra - In news that makes my skin crawl, a UK teenager found a baby bat in the lining of her 34FF bra. 34FF! Holy Lord. How can that woman feel anything through those things?

Cristopha' joins Life on Mars - As the only person in America completely obsessed with the US remake of Life on Mars (before ever watching an episode), I'm totally jazzed Michael Imperioli will be one of the sexist 1970s coppers. I've really missed him since Tony rubbed him out.

When I first saw that one headline I thought it said, "Teenager finds baby BRAT in bra." I was like, well she's a brat, what's so odd about that?

I've never found any bats in my underwear, but there are probably a few cobwebs.

I thought it said "brat" at first two. I was thinking it was one of those things where the person doesn't realize they're pregnant until the baby comes out, but then I remembered babies don't come out of your boobies.

Seriously though, FF?!? Jeez God, share the love around a little bit.

That reminds me, despite loving the Wire, I've only seen the first two seasons. I should really get on that.

I can't believe they let you show your face near B-More when you haven't watched every season of The Wire, Pistols.

I know. It's embarrassing, because friends of mine worked on the show and were like, "Hey, wanna come see the sneak preview of the first episode of Season 5?" and I couldn't, because I didn't want to ruin seasons 3 and 4 for myself.

I should start having fun, because that makes for better stories than my canny manners of avoiding it.
