Shows: Entourage! causeways , I'm watching this show on your recommendation, and I could not be happier! It's not something I'll be fannish about, but it's so well done--I feel like I'm watching a movie, and it's something that my husband will watch with me. I think the Ari character is my favorite so far. :D :D :D I smile every time I think about it! :D
Books: I just finished reading Revolutionary Road, by Richard Yates. I'll admit that I only discovered it because Kate Winslet was on the cover (yes, I'm shallow). I read it, and wow. It's a commentary on suburban life in the 1950s, but it's told from the POV of a couple who feel like they're above the fray, superior to all those cookie-cutter couples around them. They are spectacularly unhappy as individuals, as well as being dissatisfied with life in general, and they make each other miserable. It was interesting, because I disliked both characters, yet read the book really quickly and enjoyed it. The author's descriptions are so intense--I've never read a book quite like it. The movie is coming out soon--here's the trailer.
