Excellent Background TV

I have lots of e-mail and teaching prep to get through, some of it pretty mechanical (copying over dates to a calendar, etc.), and in case you’re in the same boat, I’ll note that The Lord of the Rings makes excellent background TV — pause to watch Frodo offering to take the ring, the fires being lit on the mountaintops, Eowyn and Merry against the Nazgul…

And now I’ve finished those, and I’m watching The Hobbit — I only saw the first movie previously, and while I don’t really think it was the best choice turning this into three long movies, at least I can have them as background for this weekend’s work. Good way to close off the break, and prepare to return to teaching.
