I've been watching Eli Stone lately. I wasn't sure if anybody else watched it, so I didn't want to open up it's own thread. And we have a lot of television show threads. We do have those gems sometimes (like the South Park and Lost threads) which go on and on in discussion. However, more often than not, we have 5-20 post threads about shows that nobody cares about.

My idea was this: we have a test thread for television shows. This way, PEELers can test out certain shows for discussion. If a certain show seems to be dominating discussion, we'll simply create its own thread for it.


I must say that I'm hooked on Eli Stone. It's very imaginative. Does anybody else watch it?

Eli Stone's a thirty-something attorney who has odd visions which guide him to take certain cases, do certain things, etc. Many blame his visions as being caused by a recently discovered brain aneurysm, but Eli thinks that it might be something (or -body) more. Some of his visions include musical numbers. And he has a smart alec black secretary.

Well, it's after Lost so, I end up watching it when I'm too lazy to lift the remote and change the channel.  I like it alright, but I don't think it's going to make it past eight episodes.

Well not so few days but I did recently finish all of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in 12 days. Followed by the last 2 seasons of SG1 in 3 days.

I guess this lovely weather was good for something in old blighty.

"So no one told me life was going to be this waaaaaay..."
  • Female gets problems
  • Ross gets whiny
  • Ross and/or Joey is attracted to some woman
  • Could Chandler make a more sarcastic remark?
Act break
  • Female with problem gets frantic.
  • Joey does something stupid
  • Ross does something stupid
Act break
  • Female with problem gets support from other females
  • Hilarious consequences (graciously marked with laugh track) ensue for Ross and Joey
  • Oh...my...god...another sarcastic remark?
  • Fin.

I don't recall any Friends episode like that.

All the ones I've seen begin with "So no one told you life was going to be this waaaaaay..."

I watch both Lost and Eli Stone.  My mom watches both shows as well.

Eli Stone is, in my opinion, an awesome show! I love it every time Eli gets a vision.  The visions with musical numbers are hilarious!  XD 

I think this show is very original and creative, and I enjoy seeing how the characters interact with each other.

Oh, this show, nobody probably knows of... but I love it so much that I Tivo it so I can watch it every morning during the week while I sip on my one or two cups of "cuppaccino."

It's a little series that aires at dawn on Animal Planetcalled: Sunrise Earth.  It's as if one was sipping one's "morning joe" and looking out their window at an exotic vista out one's front door!!  They have been in the Far East This week, mostly.  That and Costa Rica.  Breathtaking views and it's literally an hour at dawn somewhere on the planet!!  Heaven!!

edit-  I don't own a TiVo;  it's a generic term for programming your VCR/DVDR/ETCetra to record stuff at a certain time and wot not.  Someone asked.

I really hope the show doesn't make a chanel move, if anything, maybe they should just wrap up the seasons remaining 6 episodes and air them this summer, i'd like the show to end with some dignity, especially since the last couple of seasons have been lacking in quality

Ahhh I too have enjoyed reams of Friends when I lived with people who owned all the seasons. Every weekend, hungover to shit, we'd sit through hours of it. Oddly, it didn't get old!

I've also borrowed the final season of Buffy from a friend of mine this week, funny you should mention that. I'm clocking through an ep or two every night.   smile

The answer is: 42.  The episode, Doppelganger is airing right now on SciFi channel of SGA, better known as Star Gate Atlantis.  They are directly hinting at   The Hithhikers' Guide to the Galaxy.  It makes me enthusiatstic for another viewing of said movie!  Which will be on my list when I go to trade in Sweeny Todd the Demon Barber of Fleet Street.  I don't know when that will be...  I am awfully intrigued with this genius performed piece of art.  But The Guide is up again because of SGA.  It's a good thing.

Either fake accounts like Hypnobrecky should be banned, or an ignore feature should be added to the board so that we can at least have the choice to not have to see their posts.

I just pretend there is an ignore feature, JoT, and hypnotise my brain to not see YOUR posts...  NOT...   you're a fun fellow, JoT!  ... And dude, I am definitely not fake... that's just something winna threw out to be funny way back in another thread and it took off as if a wildfire...are YOU a fake account, Jot?  I'm just sayin'... He who protesteth loudeth probably has issuethes over the subject.  People who keep yeeling and pointing and and sying, "gay, gay, gay...."  usually have issues to ponder in their own life... If you persist in this "fakey" thing maybe your account is one of fakisnm also... and maybe you should ponder being more yourself and not worry about acceptance.. They will like the REAL you anyway you present yourself.  Jo T, I would like you if you were the real you.  Realx and just says it as yous seees it and we will love you for your REAL uniqueness...  I'm rootin' for the REAL JoshTheatre to stand up for his real spotlight of love and likeability.  My friend, you are great.  And like I always reinterate... God don't make no junk.  You are one of his brilliant creations full of wonders and possibilities...I believe in you, JoshTheatre... you have every right to be an enemy Jo T, but man, that's a lot of overly expended energy of hate that will just EAT at... you  that's how hate works... a beast that must be fed or it dies and fizzles out of existence.  To keep it breathing and hating lots of energy is thrown at the intended target.. But you live with the affects, the intended most times is totoally oblivious of the malice and torment thet the hater has stored up for malice' sake. 

The human face has an immense amount of muscles.  It takes more mscles to frown than it does to smile... yet many people expend all this extra energy keeping themselves under a dark cloud of thier own making.  When one ccould let a little sun into thei innersanctum by just smiling, forgiving others and one's self and just be an entity of light intsead of a soul suker of malice.  You are a wonderful person who needs to lighten up for one's own sake..  Maybe I should go and be les this... Apologies, Jo T, Disreguard my rant.  I'm  sorry..

I dislike that quote so much. It's flawed in so many ways.
A) It's not a scientific fact. And even if you were to research it, it could be heavily disputed as to what constitutes a smile and what constitutes a frown.
B) The number of muscles involved in a task does not determine the amount of energy put into performing that task. It could easily take more energy to move one large muscle than it would take to move several smaller muscles.
Yes, I know I'm missing the bigger picture of the phrase, but I enjoy debunking that one.  smile

I didn't respond to the rest of Brecky's post because of it's formulaic and cliche content. Also the fact that it's meaningless.

So how 'bout them television shows?

So, did anyone else buy the Garth Marenghi's Darkplace DVD?

I would so love a second series of that stuff or something else along that vein (A late eighties attempt at a Soap Opera or GM shooting his own Made For TV Movie).

Haven't watch a episode of straight Law and Order for AGES. But the one where Jeremy Sisto comes in was on tonight, so i watched that, might make a habit of that. Loved him as Billy on Six Feet Under. Also, it's on after Good News Week which is hilarious.

Is Sisto a regular, now?  He was good in {b] Six Feet Under[/b]...  Billy got to be all carazzzzzy and incestuously perverted in his obsession with his sis  and then straighten his act up and be all redeemed by the finale and deaeth of said series...   Six Feet Under... haven't thought of that for ages!  Thanks, cha, I'm going to go rent the series again when I get done Marathoning Sweeney Todd Demon Barber of Fleet Street and   Hitchhickers' Guide to the Galaxy.  Good ole' Billy and all those corpses! wink
