Did anyone watch "Recount" yesterday? What did you think?

We're in for a slow night and a slow week (with the exception of the "Lost" finale) - lot's of repeats this week, including late night television. Tonight's A&E miniseries remake of "The Andromeda Strain" begins but from what I've read online from other reviewers is that the story has been butchered almost beyond recognition. Watch it at your peril.

7:00pm The Eagle Has Landed TCM - (1977) Great war/suspense flick, perfect for Memorial Day: a Nazi colonel (Robert Duvall) drops a colonel (Michael Caine), a task force and an Irishman (Donald Sutherland) into England to kidnap Winston Churchill. [Hey, would ya' lookit' and see all the "good" guys playing bad guys in this one!]
