Aw how could I forget Doctor Who! Ive only seen the revival series, but once I get old and have nothing left to do, I'll probably buy all the DVDs and go on a 3 week non-stop Doctor Who bender. I want to see the Astro-boy cartoons, but I want to read the Manga first...though if youll notice, all the volumes are like 10 cents on amazon, while volume 1 is like $20, and I'm not paying that much.

I also have begun to watch most of my favorite shows on DVD of Hulu or something equally legal... It's fucking impossible to watch shows that have a continuing plotline, because I can't watch if I missed an episode. Family Guy, kids cartoons, sitcoms, and etc, it's ok because it doesnt really matter that much. And yet those are the DVDs I own... Family Guy/Simpsons/American Dad/Invader Zim.. lol

old Star Trek...  runs at 3AM weekends here.  I tape it, and see how far into the episode
I have to watch before I know which one it is.
I have all of TOS on DVD now
Are yours the original-original version, or the ones with all the space FX redone?

If you haven't seen 'em, it's some pretty neat work.  They re-did all the external
spaceship-pix (and monsters, and planets....)pretty much shot-for-shot; the angles
and action all stay the same, but it's modern digital FX instead of the campy models
and cello-wrap stuff.

Ah I have this on DVD also. Again thanks to my brother. I like it, but I get the impression that it's probably a lot more fun to BE The Mighty Boosh than it is to watch The Mighty Boosh...

That could be very true. Although I would not want to be seen dressed as that.

The Simpsons
League of Gentlemen
Little Britain
Fawlty Towers
Bottom
Have I Got News For You

My Name Is Earl

Awesome series, I forgot that one.
Ya know, when this show first came out, I was completely prepared for it to suck in a Major Key.
I've spent way too much time around people who look like Earl (and his associates), or who act like
Earl, and Earl's ex reminds me WAAAAAAY too much of my brother's ex...

...but it's really a great show.  It's well written, directed and preformed, and they don't rely on simple
stereotypes to sell the characters.











oh, and Catalina.......   Muy Caliente!

Yes, I think it's a great show too. And Earl's ex is the best living barbie I have ever seen.

Speaking of muy caliente and cara mia: The original Addams Family 1960's black and white tv series (it's out on dvd) is fantastic.

oooh... Addams Family...  agreed.
...and while I'm on the pleasantly-surprised page, the Addams Family movies
were far better than I would have believed.

Earl's ex is the best living barbie I have ever seen.


She started out playing in movies like Poison Ivy: The New Seduction, so it was a huge surprise that she was so great at comedy.  Although she has had thousands of fantastic lines on the show, the one that really stands out for me is when she referred to "The Last Supper" as the "Jesus eatin' dinner pitcher".  It's the way she says things that makes it so funny.  I like Crabman a lot, too.  Jason Lee is just perfect as Earl - I can't imagine anyone else doing Earl without somehow ruining the character.  Earl's brother is from another planet and we wouldn't have it any other way.

My list:

Jeopardy, religiously.
Bones, often.
Earl, often.
House, once in a while.
Dr. Who, when I remember it's on, which is think is just about all the time.
And that's just about it....except for when HBO or Showtime has a good series.

Emergency One
Do you mean Emergency, the live-action program, or Emergency 1, the animated Saturday Morning show?



Also...  There was a movie (mighta been a horror movie?) and I can't remember which one it was.
There were two cops, very small roles, but the characters' names were Officer Milner and Officer McCord.
I thought it was funny, but it bugs me that I can't remember the film.

You wouldn't happen to know what that was, wouldja?

I don't really follow T.V. Meaning, I don't really have shows that I watch every week or that I follow on a regular basis. But I have enjoyed certain shows. My two favorite shows EVER are...





And these...
-M*A*S*H
-the new version of Battlestar Galactica
-The Office
-Jeeves and Wooster
-Flight of the Conchords
-Ace of Cakes. (I want to have Geoff's baby.)
-Gilmore Girls
-Blackadder Goes Forth
