Another nothing

No Alpha Protocol tonight: there's a new Shin Sekai Yori to watch. The more of it I see, the more obvious it becomes that I misjudged the early part of the show; what seemed like a pointless and overcomplicated detour into the social structure of the Monster Rats is now turning out to be incredibly important. I don't think I can write much more about it until the series is finished, but I think a rewatch is in order when it's done - there are bound to be a lot of hints and clues that I missed the first time around.

I've also been watching a show called My Little Monster which I really like despite the fact that it's about a borderline abusive relationship. It's cliche in a lot of ways, but the character design and art - especially the colour palette - are great. I only have three or four more episodes to catch up on, but the plot seems to be getting more complicated rather than wrapping things up.

I also tried to watch a bit of the BAFTA games ceremony, but the whole thing was an embarrassment. Dara O'Briain's jokes fell a little flat, the voiceover guy was veering between mild sexism and vague bullshit, and the first thing I saw was some pillock from the Sun talking about how FIFA 13 is perfect and deserves to win the Best Game award.
