I have neglected to keep track of my Netflix movies over the past few months. I guess now is a good time to catch up.

Okay, correction: I will not be hooked to this show.

Apparently, Pretty Little Liars is the teen version of Desperate Housewives.

I wanted to like DH when it came out because of Teri Hatcher, but I don't think I ever made it through an entire episode. It's the same with PLL. I want to like it because, in addition to Annabeth Gish, it also has Holly Marie Combs, but, alas, there is too much soap opera in the mix. I did still enjoy their scenes, however.

ETA: I finished the episode, and it got a little better. A little less soap and a little more mystery. Also, AG had a couple more scenes, so that helped.

I'm downloading the first episode of the second season of Pretty Little Liars from iTunes...for FREE!

I've never seen the show, but Annabeth Gish plays the girls' therapist in a recurring role this season.

So far, iMDb only lists her in the first episode, so I was going to maybe purchase that one episode. But it's FREE! I love free.

Of course, now I'll be hooked.

Last weekend's Netflix dvd was The Celestine Prophecy, based on the novel by James Redfield, which I have not read.

It received generally poor reviews, and I can understand why, but overall I liked it. It has the look and feel of a tv movie, but there's some pretty scenery. The special fx are nothing special, but I liked the music. I thought the acting was good.

To people already familiar with new age spirituality concepts, the story might be dull. I myself was not familiar with the concepts. (I've tried to listen to Deepak Chopra, but I can't get past the accent. And I've tried listening to meditation cds, but they just sound so cheesy. My friend gave me some mp3 lectures from "A Course in Miracles", but I just don't do so well with abstract concepts.)

So for me, seeing them acted out onscreen gave me a better understanding. I've been thinking about how to actually apply it to my life or whatever, but I don't think I can put it into words at the present.
