Went tonight to see Etta James at the Hollywood Bowl, which was great. Though it was a little disturbing to see her dance sexually with her chair. And there was nearly a bust-up between the people with one month old baby and the people with the world's most bored teenagers.

Courtesy of a link in [livejournal.com profile] meyerlemon's journal I've been reading the description for HBO's new series, Rome (http://www.hbo.com/rome/). And I am not at all sorry that I made the recent decision to cancel HBO based on what I read. I don't mind cheesy goodness, but any show for which someone can actually write the following lines is not something I want to actually contribute to the viewing numbers for:

"The die-hard leader of the hard line conservative faction in the Senate. Porcius Cato is a man in whom sharp intellect and high moral stature are made sinful by the fierceness of his zealotry."

I've looked at that description a few times and I can't make head nor tail of it. How on earth can high moral stature be made sinful by anything? Moral stature could be undermined, which is what the author seems to mean, but surely not made sinful. Having read this I think I will have kinder feelings towards badly written fanfic from now on. At least the authors of that aren't being paid.
