I think I'm the only one watching the NHL playoffs considering both NBC and Versus have lost viewership since the regular season ended.

No, I've been watching, too. So that makes two viewers for a share of .00000001. :lol:

Due to a massive amount of rain (and snow) during my vacation I am now totally addicted to Robin Hood, the new series on BBC America. Can't even begin to explain why. It's just fun and who doesn't enjoy men in tights?
Thursday: This morning, I say to my wife and my girls, the waffles we face are real. They will not go away. Cornmeal waffles, buckwheat waffles, pumpkin waffles, chicken'n'waffles. The waffles we face are serious and manifold.

I have been remembering this man with some real vigor over the past couple of days. He was a miserable stinker, although now that he has gone on to his reward I can't say what I really thought of him. But if I'm any judge of these things, I'll bet he's hotter than Squeat Mungry. DebVanD

Unfortunately, the first two hours didn't grab me. Of course, I'll watch Nathan Fillion reading the phone book, so I paid attention when he was on screen, but unless this series has something more to show I'm already tuning out. Too bad, as I loved Firefly and would have loved seeing something in that vein again.


NUG!
Nathan Fillion alert! Just saw him sitting down to lunch at the Cleaver Co. in Chelsea Market.

Really, people will tell you all kinds of garbage. Don't believe it.

I am in love with the VH1 shows. Celebrity Fit Club is a hoot, watching pudgy c-list celebrities loose weight. It's actually inspiring on some level and hysterical watching nobodies like Dustin Diamond (sp) who is as relevant as Tang, act important.

I also LOVE Charm School with Mo'nique. A house full of rejects from Flavor of Love learn charm and poise, or at least try to. It's as fake as Ashlee Simpson but it's pretty funny.

And you guys have been arguing for a generation that public policy ought to essentially demean gay people as a way of expressing disapproval of the fact that we exist, but you don't make any less of us exist. You just are arguing in favor of more discrimination, and more discrimination doesn't make straight people's lives any better." -Rachel Maddow to Jim DeMint and Ralph Reed

Before or after the sex tape?

He's pretty big. And a complete pig.

Yes, thank you. It's in my plans for the weekend. And the movie got a lovely review in the NYT.

Lucky for Nathan that instead of reading a phone book he gets to have an affair with the beauteous Keri Russell.

I was pretty sad to find out that Adrienne Shelley, promising director of and actress in "Waitress," was murdered.

We totally caught that wave too! It's a great series. Evil sherrif (reminds me of an old prof) - lovely maid marianne - nice chappies in the gang - smart script, takes a little guesswork thankfully - good shooting and clever schemes. It's such a hit here at home we have to get back Saturday nights in time for the new edisode!

The Saturday night schedule was a problem for me, too, but I just got a DVR!!! My life is now complete. Not only do I not have to mess with the tapes, I've got 100 hours of digital, mind-numbing bliss at my fingertips and I still get to fast forward through the commercials. And the next best part, I don't even have to remember to set the DVR because it will simply record an entire SERIES if I want it to. It's brilliant.

My grandfather, who came over from Italy in the early 1900's, never did believe that we actually put a man on the moon. And I know if he saw this thing he'd say it was something from the devil. But I say pure heaven.

The America's Funniest Videos marathon on Nick at Nite. I have loved this show for years - it is so trashy but soo good (as trashy things often are).
