So.  This weekend I'm sitting down and doing a big push to get 80% of my reporting done.  Some of it can't be done until Tuesday night because of assessments.

If cricket were on, I'd "watch" that, but since it isn't I need some DVD help.

I can't decide whether or not to go with something I've seen a dozen times before, so I don't get overly distracted, but am still entertained, such as Buffy or West Wing.

I'm partway through a series of Alias, but I think that's not going to be quite fluffy enough, and I'd hate to miss something important.

Or do you have movie recommendations?

I hate most romcoms and stupid "satire" funny movies (i.e. anything with Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler etc).  Anything serious completely out.

If you have any adult music concert DVD or stand up comedy DVD they help with the motivation. That has helped with essays and studying.

I'd go with West Wing if it were me, or 6 Feet Under, maybe Entourage?

something that you aren't really needing to look at the screen... Something with a lot of musical or witty dialog that is just as good without the images would work...

Not comedy - it's too easy to lose the "formal report" language and let something inappropriate sneak in!

I vote for something you've seen many times so you can lose yourself in your work - that's what I do.

I will also be writing reports most of the weekend.  I will have Game of Thrones on when the kids aren't around as I have seen it once already.  LOTR would be good to watch as well.  Or Doctor Who, Veronica Mars.  Not sure which yet.

Not really looking forward to this weekend.

Will also need icy cold coke and snacks.
