All kids love their grandmas, what could they love more than a show full of grannies?

But enough nonsense, any fans of Nathan Fillion watching Castle?
Seems like it might be good, I only caught a bit of an episode last night.

DrT: lol post reading fail, I blame his silly avy.
I'm gonna start watching because Nathan Fillion is sexy dreamy a good actor.

I think Two and a Half Men is the most loathsome show on television and I do not understand why my father insists on watching it.

And yet Chuck Lorre created it, and he also has The Big Bang Theory--a show that I find really funny--under his belt. So I don't know. I guess this is what people who like Futurama but hate The Simpsons think about Matt Groening.

Strange, Gorky (also yay Gorky, but let's keep my excitement at a civil level, wouldn't scare the young lady), that the same man should be behind Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory.

But that is just by the credits.  Now, Gorky, there is this website called 'Wikipedia', which has some articles on both shows, and (much like I am trying to pull through on the Infosphere) they have production sections.

Oh, I'm sorry, only The Big Bang Theory has a production section.  But that is actually more enough than an answer; I bet Two and a Half Men was a show that they had to get together quickly because the production company was screaming for something new and stupid and cheap and all around public they could do.

Like The Simpsons.  When that was under way, Chuck Lorre had the good faith of the production companies to create a more... 'niche' show.

It's the strangest thing.  But for writers, actors, whoever in the industry (the biz), you gotta sell out at times.  Only way you can move forward.  And earn money.  And perhaps the notice of other producers and whatnot!

Two and a Half Men wasn't always so bad.  It was never as good as The Big Bang Theory, but back in the first season or so it was genuinely amusing.  It's unwatchable now, though.

Speaking of smug assholes solving problems while trading barbs with a brunette love interest, Burn Notice is a pretty cool show.  It's kind of like The A-Team with less welding and bullets that occasionally hit their intended targets.  Bruce Campbell, said brunette love interest, is hilarious as usual.

I withheld making mean spirited posts in the Big Bang Theory thread (because it's a terrible show), but now we're starting to see some residue seeping into the TV thread. All I'll say is you guys really shouldn't be feeling superior to viewers of Two and a Half Men. frown

chaydy chatterly's lover: the number of times this guy put on and took off his hat was greatly reduced from the previous seasons; the writers must have been running out of ideas.

To lazy to go to the Scrubs page to say: Kelso got fat and looks like he's about to die. Perhaps a metaphor for the show?

Just saw the initial episode of the new series "Justified", which is made by the same production company that makes "Sons of Anarchy" (it has the same visual feel as "Sons" which is very high quality for TV).   Timothy Olyphant stars as a US Marshall that's assigned to his hometown area in Kentucky, and it's pretty good.

We watch a lot of "true crime" shows at work.  They're usually one of the only things on during the god-forsaken hours I'm working.  I sometimes get angry at the criminals for making such stupid mistakes, like the guys who break windows from the inside to stage a burglary.  It's like, "What the heck, dude?  And you murdered someone?  Idiot."

I watch "America's Dumbest Criminals" occasionally, and it's amazing how braindead some of them are.  My personal favorite is the guy who robbed a 7-11 with a paper bag on his head (forgetting to cut holes out so he could see what he was doing, of course).

Oh man, anyone following the latest CSI season?
Dr. Jekyll is an awesome badguy, they nearly caught him in the last episode, EEEEEEEE!

Grissom had his nemeses (The Miniature Killer for example) and this is Langstons 1st one I suppose, but he killed a guy by drugging a him and putting radioactive seeds in his brain, making the guy go crazy and kill his neighbors and their dog.
Nothing like a good serial killer. evil laugh

I'm watching old episodes of Hey Arnold!, courtesy of YouTube, and I am reminded of how it was the first cartoon I loved, y'know, obsessively. If I'd been a bit older when it was first on, I think I would've joined the Hey Arnold-equivalent of PEEL. It really is a great show (with, I think, a better sense of continuity and characterization than either Futurama or The Simpsons), and watching it now takes me back to the carefree days of my not-at-all-distant youth.

Hey Arnold, eh? I actually just recently downloaded the whole series on a torrent website and enjoyed it very much. That show really doesn't get enough credit.

Also, just finished watching all 3 seasons of Californication. I want David Duchovny's babies.

A friend of mine actually has a punk band in NJ called Stoopkid. They suck, but they get bonus points for the name.

On a semi-related note, my band ended up jamming on a 8-minute version of "Killer Tofu" by the Beets at our last practice. Ah ee oooh, Killer Tofuuuuuu!

My friend used to have such a crush on Hey Arnold! Or Arnold himself, I don't know. I always loved Helga's bubblegum Arnold statue.

Also, just finished watching all 3 seasons of Californication. I want David Duchovny's babies.
Damn, I only saw season 1 then bits and pieces of season 2 and 3. The lone episodes I saw needed more context. I did find it hilarious to see Miss Honey from Matilda having an affair with Hank though.
