I've been so busy with juggling grenades at work and working over time, I've been too tired to really do any reading when I get home/on my days off. As a result, I'm as far into The Martian now as when I last talked about it, which is about chapter 11 or so. I'm hoping to be able to pick it up again this Friday as it really is a very fun book (that and I promised my wife I'd finish it before we went out to see the movie).

Speaking of my wife and her forcing me to read things I have no interest in reading, she saw me watching a few episodes of Longmire on Netflix the other month so she bought me Wait for the Signs by Craig Johnson which is apparently what the TV series is based on. I don't have the heart to tell her that I read a spoiler about the TV show that made me write it off as crap not worth watching, but I love her, so I'll begrudgingly read the book. Who knows? Maybe I'll like it.

Speaking of TV though, anyone ever see Hell on Wheels? I'm only three episodes in but I kind of like it. Is it worth sticking through?

I watched the first season of Hell on Wheels and then lost interest in the time between seasons. It was ok but not awesome. I've heard the second season is better so maybe I'll give it a try some day.

Hmm. I might see if I'll stick with it for a bit. None of the characters or the story as a whole is really pulling me in, but at the same time it's not awful either. To be honest, I'm just kind of killing time until Daredevil Season 2 comes out. I wonder if Netflix would ever be willing to release the series on Blu-Ray . . .
