Well, it had to come down to this. Star Trek has been such a huge part of my life that a list dedicated to its best episodes (at least IMO) had to follow here. *g*

Favourite ST-episodes and honorable mentions, of course )

Watching TV is a hobby of mine. I like being entertained by funny, complex, suspenseful stories that don't take up much more than 45 minutes (or 90 in one case *g*). I enjoy character development/interaction and seeing characters evolve throughout a show's run. Having said that, let's get to it.

My Top 10 all time favourite TV-shows - and honorable mentions )

I guess, next up will be a list of TV-series which I'm currently watching. I also plan to make up a list of Top 10 episodes for programmes such as Star Trek, Stargate. Maybe even include a list of favourite fanfiction. Let's see. *g*

Yes, I'm officially done with my residency. What a long and difficult road it has been, but it's over now. At the moment I'm relishing doing nothing, in a couple of weeks I'm going to look for a job... but not right now. *g*

So, I'm finally going to do what I have wanted to for the last couple of years - and that's making lists of anything that comes to my mind. *g*

Ex Machina by Christopher L. Bennett - 7/10

Overall, despite the criticism "Ex Machina" is a very enjoyable novel. Bennett's writing style has some quirks which I could certainly do without, but he does know how to build up an intriguing plot and keep the tension from the start right to the finishing line. And that almost makes up for the fact that we apparently don't quite see eye to eye when it comes to Spock's character.

After needing to be reminded which movies I went to see so far in 2006 - and it weren't that many to excuse forgetting one already! -, I decided to keep track of them, as well as of books I read, via listing them on this journal...

Today I had the first part of the Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English-exam consisting of reading, writing, listening parts and a part called "English in Use" which is basically proof-reading a text, filling in words in a gapped text etc. I applied for this exam because I'd like to have some way to proove my English skills for my CV, and on the other hand I did it for fun as well. The oral exam is on Tuesday... the results will be sent to me within the next 2 months.

Right now, I'm quite addicted to the new version of "Battlestar Galactica". Wow, what an intense programme. But I think it deserves its own entry in this journal. :)
