30-day TV/movie meme, Day 2

This is a nifty meme where each day you cite something about movies and about TV for a month.

Movie Day 02 - The most underrated movie

Mystery Men. This is a movie that really came out three years too soon, as it was a parody of group superhero films that was released two years prior to X-Men. If it had been released after the X-franchise made big bucks, there would've been an audience for it, but instead it came out before the big superhero movie boom of the early 2000s. A pity, as it's one of the three or four best comic book adaptations out there, and is just magnificently hilarious and twisted, with some stellar performances.

TV Day 02 - A show that you wish more people were watching

Even though it's no longer on, I'm going to say The Wire, simply because it did what television could do, but rarely does, and is that rare television series that is truly novelistic in scope.

Haven't been able to get a good shot of Newk yet -- he's still a bit traumatized by the move, though the catnip we got him tonight has helped -- but Belle and Rhi have both been good enough to pose, the former on the blue chair, the latter in the hallway:

I hope to get Newk soon..............
