It's a questionnaire:
Stoker, starring Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska and Matthew Goode, and is the authorial debut of Wentworth Miller, yes, Wentworth from Prison Break. And It's a very fine one.
ACTA in a Nutshell –
What is ACTA? ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.
Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”
What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

I think I'm going to do the first Grimm fics rec.
About the new series.
I watched the first episode of Grimm with no interest at all and after that I forgot about it. Please not another supernatural cop show!
Then last week I watched the third episode and something clicked. It's not about cops, one of them with weird powers and weirder ancestors but a show who give us an interesting take on the power of the wild in modern times.
It focuses on the relationship between Nick who is "a Grimm" - yes the fairytales - and a very dangerous man who is not a man but a wolf and got a wry sense of humor, meanwhile trying to relate to the dark side.
Hell now it's interesting.
David Greenwalt of my beloved "Miracles" is behind all that.

*a very sikret mumbling*
you are one of my favourite series - I love the imagery, the characters and the myth arch (well most of the time)
when you pull an episode so lame and stupid as Serie 7 -Time for a Wedding! I'd definitely go for violence.
Please don't make me punch you.
With Smallville ending its 10-season run this past May, the CW has made launching a new superhero franchise based on a DC property a priority. The network’s first effort this development season is Deadman, a drama based on the DC Comics books by Arnold Drake and Carmine Infantino, which will be written and executive produced by Supernatural creator Eric Kripke. The project is about the spirit of a murdered man, Boston Brand, who lives on as he inhabits other people’s bodies and helps them solve crises in their own lives.
“We’re looking next year to do a superhero show if the right superhero comes to be,” CW president Mark Pedowitz said at TCA last month, noting the advantage of having Time Warner-owned DC Comics in the family. (CW is a joint venture of Warner Bros. Entertainment and CBS). Getting Kripke to develop Deadman seems like a no-brainer as he is the man behind CW’s longest running scripted series on the air. Sci-fi drama Supernatural enters its seventh season this fall and Pedowitz recently indicated that it is not intended to be the show’s last. While no longer a hands-on showrunner (Supernatural is co-run by Sera Gamble and Robert Singer), Kripke continues to serve as an executive producer.
I don't know the books, are they good?
