I'm with Chay when it comes to the not-watching-many-sitcoms thing, but I watched "The Big Bang Theory" last night and was pleasantly surprised by how, like, not horrible I found it. It was actually pretty funny; maybe I'll try to catch it again next week (I have this really short attention span when it comes to most TV shows, in that I can't maintain a set schedule of "Okay, I watch these shows on Monday and these shows on Tuesday...", but a gal can dream).

Also watching Stephen King's Kingdom Hospital. I saw the end of it aaaaages ago on TV and always vowed to watch it's entirety. Also, cause Evangeline Lilly was in it smile But it turns out she was only in one episode known only as "Benton's Girlfriend" and was uncredited...

It's pretty good, creepy and weird, but kind of good.

Big Bang theory? Meeeeh.... it's not the worst thing ever, but I've watch a few eps and found it excelled only in it's blandness.

It has its moments. I think it tricks 'nerds' into liking it because it has "geek jokes" in it, but really it has the same basic storylines as every other show/movie 'created'.

Just started watching How I Met Your Mother.
Where the hell have you been?! It was on just before Lost when it first started. I don't care if you people only watch shows on the internet, you should know when a great show is on. mad But yeah, if Barney wasn't part of the ensemble it would probably only be a good show instead of great.

Stop watching Big Bang theory and buy the IT Crowd DVD boxset. It has geeky jokes and is generally amusing. Plus it also has Matt Berry AND Richard Ayoade.

And if you love that, Also get Garth Marenighs Darkplace. Now thats comedy.

Anybody see David Letterman explain the extortion attempt made against him this week? Some CBS employee was trying to get $2 million out of him by threatening to expose affair(s) he'd had with staffers on The Late Show. Dave reported it and participated in a sting operation. The guy was arrested.

He confessed to the whole thing on the air, including the boning of more than one female subordinate on the show (turns out one of them was an intern in her early twenties!). I have never seen a person confess to something so embarrassing in such a dignified manner.

Hell of a thing to come up just a few months after he finally married Regina after 'dating' for like two-hundred years. Cruel for her, but I can't help but feel some guilty admiration for a sixty-something year old guy screwing around with young interns.

I'm sure you'll be just as dignified when you expose all the twisted affairs and scandals you were involved in over the course of your life, when the time comes. For now - get cracking!

Okay, okay... here it is. I slept with a blind women by impersonating her husband. Yes, it's despicable, but in my defense she was absolutely smokin'!

Personally, I think that any good show could be made great by allowing Neil Patrick Harris to play a total sexual inversion of himself. It's double-hilarious because he's gay.

You get a Bill Bailey DVD and a Dylan Moran DVD and play them together and imagine they're talking to each other in a bookshop.

Heh, I was discussing Modern Family last night, I've only seen a bit of one episode, when the gay guys present their adopted kid to the Lion King soundtrack, lols

I'm adding it to my ShowRSS feed as soon as it comes back online (nooooo! )

Also, Californication is still great, plenty of boobs, Hank is now in a love square (not triangle!) with the college deans wife, his teaching assistant and one of his students, my hero.

And 30 Rock is back, yaaay! \big grin/

Speaking of shows on Showtime, Penn & Teller: Bullshit! is pretty funny.  Fewer boobs, but they're still there from time to time.

I loved the one episode where they lampooned the bottled water industry by have a water "Sommelier" at a restaurant.  Just brilliant.

Them messing with people presenting the "new recycling program" was my favorite.

And is it just me that's ready for october to be over so the channel formerly known as SciFi will go back to showing stuff that's actually ... enjoyable?

I caught an episode of Community a few nights ago.  It was fairly entertaining.  The Batman-bits were hilarious, especially the voiceover near the end.

Is he allowed to eat cookies again yet?

Aw man...can't find any "Classiic!" clips from Skithouse. But I did find this song from Tripod. I remember it being on one of the comedy festivals, I'm sure it was better with visual..

They don't really have many Skithouse clips online outside of Tripod songs. hmpf

I finished watching Primeval on DVD and frankly it can go rot.  The first two seasons were great, but the third was terrible.  I'm pretty much the only one here who watches the show, but I'll spoilerize it anyway.

Anyone living in Recession-land....oops the US and a fan of Avatar will want to watch 60 minutes Sunday. There will be a major section with James "I'm so great" Cameron and behind the scenes they will go, I've read.
It could actually make some money this could.
Cameron wrote the movie years ago and had to wait for technology to catch up.

More recent stuff. The last resident host before the switched to guests. The skinny gay guy with curly hair.

Also, Noel is awesome.
