Tonight's show. AMC's Hell On Wheels.

This will be it's last season. Curious to see how they will play out the characters.

After that maybe we'll watch The American West. Seems like an interesting show. If not, I'm taking my remotes, turn off the tv and going to bed.

Dark Forest Justice

Have any of you seen Dark Forest Justice? It takes place in Western Washington State in the Olympic National Park.

I went there once with some friends. Spooky is a nice word for it. I tried to go into the woods with my friends, made it in about ten feet and headed right back to the road. Moss everywhere, dark, damp, eerie beyond belief. I was warned about mountain lions, coyotes, and other wide life. That is all I needed to hear. I love the countryside, but this is more country than I ever want.

So while I am standing near the car, I see a huge owl just gliding over my head. Never even hear it approach. Then after a few more minutes, a full grown Bald Eagle flies overhead. The sight of that bird just took my breath away. Saw some smaller wildlife crossing the road. Okay, I have seen enough. I want out of here. The rest of the group showed up about five minutes later with a pail full of mushrooms.

So I am looking at Episode 3. Watching these folks head into the woods brought back all those feelings of fear I had that day. My heart is pounding like mad. But I can't look away. I watched Episodes 1 and 2 and had the same reaction. This program has me hooked. Tonight they are looking for some human bones. And it is pretty deep into the woods. They also are tracking down illegal tree harvesting. Because it is a tropical forest, it is constantly raining mist. That only adds to the eeriness of the place. But I will keep watching this series and try to get a grip on myself. It is on the Discover Channel.

Watching Rizzoli and Isles, I can't believe they are cancelling the show. That's the second one this season. I practically don't even care about any other shows, though I do watch plenty.

The show is actually Dark Woods Justice.

There was another show on for a while about the game wardens in Washington state. They pretty much covered the entire state, but a few times I saw them driving down a road near here. I don't know if they cancelled this show or not.

There's also Northwest Law, a show that focuses on the game wardens of Maine. I really like that one.

The Olympics are actually a rain forest, so maybe that contributed to why you felt the way you did.

We really enjoyed The Legend of Mick Dodge that took place in the Olympic rain forest, but sadly It's been canceled now.

I looked for Dark Woods Justice on Discovery, and it seems to have also gone the way of being canceled and no longer available. Bummer.

When the sun was out...all those green ferns with the warm brown tree colors...the forest looked magical.

I just loved the season's ending of Big Bang Theory. Also Doc Martin.
Well, I did catch the full final episode on rerun. I do wish they had continued the series. It would have been a howl seeing these two misfits raising a baby while she is pregnant in her first pregnancy in that crazy household. Nothing like bursting at the seams!

Returning the favor. North Woods Law. I am a sucker for any show that shows caring for animals.

Dark Woods Justice is just scary. Even the wardens that work it admit it when they are on foot. The one time I went there was once too many times for me. I couldn't wait to get out of there, cross over and get back on I5.
