I still watch it too even though it hasn't been remotely good for awhile now. I mean it was even sucking in the last two seasons with Carrel. I think the writers made Andy bad again to get him back for filming Hangover III instead of doing the Office. That's why for the first half of this season Andy was doing 1 minute cameos through skype.

I've always felt that dbag Andy was better than the nice guy character. But I agree its stupid to switch him back now since they built up his relationship with Erin for the past 3 or 4 seasons now.

Derek is a nice show. Pretty funny at times. I guess my only critique is the reliance on pop music to "frame" moods and situations. The finale uses it the most, but it's kinda nice sometimes.

I've gotten to halfway through season 2 of Game of Thrones.

Fucking thing is addictive. Its clearly a soap opera, written by a horny nerd, but its addictive. Its no way near as good as the Wire, Mad Men, Rome, Boardwalk Empire class of shows. But its a good time killer.


Sucks that the thread dedicated to it is filled with people who read the books that spend most of their time explaining how they read the books and how the books, well, they read them.

*no offense to those who've read the books.

he was feeling horrible about himself and expressed it by treating her like shit. He's done it to Lena a bunch of times last season. He also wants to break up with her and has Lena on his mind.

What's wrong with that? One of my ex's would sometimes tell me she didn't want me to bust my load in her mouth when she gave me head so she said I could blow the load on her chest so I did.

If your woman isn't letting you jizz on her chest, it's not love.

Enlightened is such a depressing show.

It makes "The Killing" seem like Friends.

Chosen - 10/10

Holy crap, I haven't seen a show that made me want to keep watching every episode no matter what, I mean I have with Mad Men, Rome, Boardwalk Empire and a very select few others but this one is just intense. Milo Ventimiglia isn't someone I consider a great actor, but he's damn good in this and the suspense is built up very nicely. For a "Crackle" show, it's done very well.

Crackle is like Netflix, but free. A few ads here and there when you watch stuff but it's not half bad. I have it on my 360, but I still watch Netflix over it.

i can relate to his character pretty well, having some self loathing myself, but what is definitely unbelievable is the size of his apartment.

Also I'm very concerned about what he's making.

The former students allege that Seibel, who lived and worked in one of the private school's dorms as a "dorm parent," held dorm-room sessions that he referred to as "AP Drama," which involved measuring the boys' penises with a ruler and encouraging the boys to masturbate in his and each others' presence.

Some of the men also allege that Seibel would often walk into the dorm's shower area and watch them as they bathed. Seibel allegedly remained clothed during these interactions.

Seibel is a professional actor, who according to his iMDB page, has appeared in the Big Bang Theory, D3: The Mighty Ducks, Knots Landing, and Murder She Wrote, among several other movies and TV shows. Ironically, he played a naked teacher in his role on Big Bang Theory.

Danger 5 - A+/10

Watched this after seeing the trailer in the random stuff thread in The Tool Box. One of the best things I've ever seen. 1960s super-team homage/send-up replete with terrible models, bad dubbing, cheesy dialogue etc. Makes Darkplace look like a load of garbage. Stop whatever you're doing and watch this show.

So glad someone else watches this too, it's pretty awesome. It reminds me of Archer, with accents and if the creators took more drugs.

It's really fucking annoying when US networks rip off/remake shows to make their own version. Censored, watered down shitty versions of good shows. This show would be great on HBO, but on Fox? Won't last a season.

Rake doesn't need to be remade with a bunch of shitty actors, it's good with the original in Australia. Greg Kinnear? Horrible casting. Worse is that it's going to be on Fox.

HBO has officially canceled "Enlightened" after two critically acclaimed but low-rated seasons. The half-hour series was co-created by Mike White and Laura Dern, who were also both a part of the ensemble cast along with Diane Ladd, Luke Wilson, Timm Sharp and Sarah Burns.

Actress Alexis Bledel is engaged to marry her former Mad Men co-star Vincent Kartheiser.

The couple began dating last year after meeting on the set of the hit U.S. TV show, and now the actors are set to wed.

They did show a lot of chemistry on screen, figures.

Two and a Half Men is still airing, it's just a really shitty show without Charlie Sheen.

Anyone check out BBC's In the Flesh? Interesting concept. The premise is there was a zombie outbreak, but they eventually came up with a cure. The show follows a guy who has been cured around.

Someone watch it and let me know if I should bother.

It's a flexible term, as far as I'm concerned.

Anyway, sad to hear about Enlightened. I haven't watched but I heard good things and was looking to get into it. Mike White had a good interview on WTF recently, too.

It might very well be, I'm only surprised to see it just as flexible in Dempsey's mouth. He's come across - to me, at least - as pretty inflexible in that regard.

I only ever managed to get through season one so far, watched it in two sittings pretty far apart one from the other; never had the urge to finish watching it. There was only one great episode for me on the lot and I found the rest wanting.

Did not mean to spark an endless convo about it either. Let's carry on.

Also, finished season 4 of NewsRadio a couple days ago. Girlfriend and I are debating whether to bother with season 5. I know things take disastrous turn after Hartman's death, and the fourth season's very inconsistent. Anyways, probably onto season 3 of Archer, which just popped onto Netflix.

I recognize that to many people, Enlightened's content is as brilliant as it's form, but it's just totally not my thing. Everything in its form is very, *very* well done, but it doesn't appeal to me. Parsing this out into film/media/literature doesn't change this whatsoever.


Well, that's exactly what I am not.

I simply misunderstood your original point. I did not read it as being "it's well done but totally not my thing", I got it as "great form, poor content = great writing nonetheless", which I found odd.

Don't ever put me and Westy in the same basket again.

Apologise and all will be fine.

All I know in the last page and half is that Macbeth is a superfan of Enlightened. Maybe I should watch the 2nd season then.
