watching basic cable version of "demolition man" from my dvr. haven't laughed so hard in a long time, forgot how awesome R rated movies on basic cable is. wish the movie would come to blue ray already, pretty good in a cliche over the top way
2nd season of "Scrubs" -- 4 episodes last night with dinner on netflix streaming. The Powell/Lombard "My Man Godfrey" when I woke up this AM. Japanese language print of "Destroy All Monsters" is spinning on my ancient LD player right now as I type -- and I am about to make popcorn. "The Killer Inside Me" on a netflix bluray tonight -- or perhaps "Red Cliff" the extended cut on two blurays which I just purchased recently.
Hellcats, Pretty Little Liars (MTV UK did something sensible for once and put those two shows back-to-back - the latter is everything The Event wishes it was), Make It Or Break It, 30 Rock, the new Hawaii Five-O, The Simpsons and Modern Family.
Is this the first time you're watching the series??? Season 4 was my favorite season of Lost.
Yep, first time!
Oh my. I envy you. Is Holly on the journey with you? What do you guys think overall? I know Allardyce just finished the whole series recently, and I've seen it all before but I keep thinking about the show (it really stays with you...if you dig it) and I have this strong nagging feeling to watch it all again. I have dozens of shows I have been wanting to watch and many on the ready line but there's something magical and wonderful about Lost that makes me want to jump right back in from the beginning and plow through. I know I'll enjoy the hell out of myself. I also have been meaning, since I've seen how it all ends and comes together, to go back to the beginning and look at the show from the new perspective of noticing and admiring the structure of the series and how it all works. I'm confident I'll enjoy it on that level. I randomly watched some season 3 episodes recently and was hit hard by how much I miss the show...
Since you're on season 4, I'll chime in with the fact that I love the badass character of Keamy. The action scenes with him are tremendously exciting and I've always thought that actor, Kevin Durand, was very interesting and unique.
I'm really loving it so far. Holly refuses to watch it, citing a complete lack of interest. I think she'd dig it if she'd only give it a chance, but alas, trying to get her to watch LOST is, well, a lost cause...for now, anyways. So far my favorite character in the show is Giacchino's music.
Saw a horrible episode called "The Susie" which even the writer's in the commentary said was really bad. So much of it just didn't make sense. Elaine creates a character that doesn't exist because a woman calls her Susie and in the end the only way to get rid of her, she creates a funeral for Susie (who doesn't exist) and there is a scene in a funeral home with lots of extras, there for Susie (who doesn't exist) So did how did Elaine get the funeral home to put on a phony funeral and where did all these people come from to mourn Susie ( who doesn't exist)? I'm thinking, who wrote this trash?
Just really stupid.
The other B and C stories were equally as idiotic. Jerry has a friend he doesn't like that becomes a "bookie" and then Jerry wins a wager and the bookie can't pay up, so Jerry accidently slams the bookie's thumbs in his car's trunk and then the bookie later gets trapped in the trunk. He later shows up at Susie's funeral proclaiming that Seinfeld murdered Susie.
Story C. Kramer sets his watch ahead for Daylight savings time and is either late or early to functions. Hilarious.
Yeah, the whole funeral thing is odd when you think about it, but I like the deal with the bookie and Kramer thinking Jerry deliberately broke his hands just because he couldn't get his money. But Seinfeld is my favorite show of all time, and I'll take a weak episode of it (which, IMO, there are very few of) over an episode of just about any other show.
As for me, not revisiting any older shows at the moment, although I have been meaning to sit down and rewatch The Pretender, as I've had all four seasons for awhile now.
I finished the first 3 episodes of Brisc County this morning(that includes watching the pilot twice once without commentary, once with the Bruce Campbell and Carlton Cuse commentary). I loved the show when it first aired. It is fun seeing again "old friends" Brisco, Dixie Cousins, Lord Bowler, Prof. Wickwire (the wonderous John Astin) and Aristotle Poole ("That's Socrates.") The latter played by a young Christian Clemenson in his pre-Boston Legal and CSI Miami days. And I can't forget Comet, Brisco's horse.
