Zzzzzzzz ...

Just got back into town from Cali and I'm dog tired. So, no Iron Man review yet. But our last day in LA was kick ass. We got to go on set for the filming of some scenes for the TV series Numbers in downtown LA. My wife's uncle, Martin Price, is the set decorator for the show. We met the director and the F/X guy gave us a close-up tour of the stunts they were running that day. I got some very cool pictures, including Alex sitting in star Rob Morrow's chair and on the camera stand. I'll get the pictures posted and more details of the day tomorrow. But now, to sleep, perchance to dream ...

Sounds like a great trip. Even with my generic antipathy towards television, the machinery geek in me would quickly jettison my principles to watch a TV shoot in action.

I'm curious to read your Iron Man review. I'm planning to catch a matinee tomorrow before heading off for work, so we'll see if we agree!

Cool, sounds like fun. As I read about your on-set tour I caught myself remembering the Diff'rent Strokes episode where Arnold and Dudley got stuck in a car on the set of Knight Rider that was set for demolition. Pfft.

We saw Iron Man this weekend too. I liked it a lot. My only complaint is that I'm getting a little tired of Comic Book adaptations where the first installment is merely a long setup for a sequel next Summer. But it was a lot of fun and I LOOOOOVE Robert Downey Jr.
