Hannibal Season 2

This show is awesome. I'm so happy NBC renewed it for another Season. Honestly I didn't think anybody could play the title character as well or as terrifying as Sir Anthony Hopkins...Mads Mikkelsen* is incredible in this role. If you haven't seen Season 1, definitely check it out.

The debut is Feb 28th.

More Spiderman is better than less Spiderman

While I did enjoy the Tobey Maguire Spider-man movies, preferred in order they were released*, and did initially think that a reboot this soon after they were done is weird... now my thinking is more Spider-man is preferable to less. (unless they make a movie like Spider-man 3**, no thanks)

*especially that first one, something about it really gave it some great qualities
 **I want my money back, even though they introduced Venom.

aaand you will cry.

Just prior to WWII breaking out Nicholas Winton single-handedly saved 669 Czech Jewish children from their doomed fates at the hands of the invading Nazis. Many of the parents of these children ended up being killed at concentration camps. He was knighted in 2002 for his efforts.

From his Wiki entry:

Just before Christmas 1938 Winton was about to travel to Switzerland for a skiing holiday, when he decided instead to travel to Prague, Czechoslovakia, to help his friend Martin Blake, who was involved in Jewish refugee work,[4] and had called him asking for his help.[8] There he single-handedly established an organization to aid children from Jewish families at risk from the Nazis. He set up an office at a dining room table in his hotel in Wenceslas Square.[9] In November 1938, shortly afterKristallnacht, the House of Commons had approved a measure that would permit the entry of refugees younger than 17 years old into Britain, if they had a place to stay and a warranty of £50 was deposited for a ticket for their eventual return to their country of origin.[10]
