The Kids in the Hall
- I didn't discover this until last year, though I'd seen a couple of episodes when I was a kid. Strangely enough, I was motivated to watch it because I loved Kevin McDonald's voice work in "Invader Zim" and "Lilo & Stitch." It was only after seeing the show that I realized he played Pastor Dave, the best non-major character in "That 70s Show," and Santo, a director, in a series of commercials for a local used car dealer. I love the random- but not too random-ness of the series, and the Kids themselves are terrific.Taken
- Do miniseries count? 'Cos I adore this one. Dakota Fanning's a great actress, especially at such a young age, and she brings so much heart to this show. Sure, it's cheesy at times, but it was equally touching and, for a show about aliens, oddly human. I'm very, very happy it's been released on DVD. Newsradio
- I've been watching this in re-runs, and I really wish I'd discovered it during its network run. It's amazing the amount of brilliant humor they can derive from simple things. Phil Hartman's great, and it's truly saddening that we lost such a talented actor. I'm also surprised at how not irritating Andy Dick is. It goes without saying that Dave Nelson is easy on the eyes too...Invader Zim
- Why, Nickelodeon, why would you cancel such a great show? Not suitable for children? Who buys a Jhonen Vasquez creation, thinking it'll be good for kids? I'd show it to my kids, but I'd also read them Edward Gorey before bed and let them watch Sleepy Hollow
, so perhaps I'm not good at judging what's child-appropriate. Anyway, this cartoon was my reason for watching Nick, and I'm psyched they still show it on Nicktoons. The DVD's coming out soon as well.
I also like "Scrubs," "Will & Grace," "Twin Peaks," "JEM" (Yes, *that* "JEM" ) and "The Tick."
Oh, and "I Love the [Insert Decade]" is great too. It's the most addictive show I've ever watched.
Amélie still seeks solitude. She amuses herself with silly questions about the world below, such as "How many couples are having an orgasm right now?"
