On a different note ... Is anyone else watching Traffic: The Miniseries, the USA Network production based on the movie (which, in turn, was based on a miniseries)?

I sheepishly admit to never seeing the movie, but I have seen the original BBC miniseries. The USA version updates and expands the concept, throwing in elements of the "War on Terror" and illegal immigration. I'm enjoying the hell out of it. I don't even mind Balthazar Getty.

USA will rerun the first two installments today beginning at 5 p.m. Eastern, capped off by the debut of the miniseries finale at 9 p.m. If you miss Traffic, I'm sure the network will show it again. And again. And again. I mean, it's USA. What else do they have to show besides Monk and reruns of Law & Order: SVU?
