The View From Monday - May 20, 2013

Happy Monday!  It's another relatively light release week.

I got very little reading down this weekend, but did see Star Trek Into Darkness with my kids. I really enjoyed the movie. I managed to avoid any spoilers whatsoever so audibly gasped at one point. (You can confirm that with my kids.) It was a great surprise. Star Trek Into Darkness was fun, campy at times, full of action, and it had an interesting plot. I watched the original Star Trek when it was broadcast on TV (yes, I'm that old). I'm enjoying the reboot immensely.

I also watched the Series 7 finale of Doctor Who several times.  I'm not going to say much about it other than it ends on a huge cliffhanger. *shakes fist at Moffat* At least I don't believe that there will be a regeneration as it has been reported that Matt Smith will return for Series 8. But really, who knows?

Back to books...  there are 3 debuts out tomorrow!
