    such a great episode. rip torn really makes the show. i also really love the agent, stevie. "i'd like things to continue the way they are, only with more fucking". where they found the guy to play hank is beyond me. that guy is fucking PERFECT.

    Archer is great.

    DOES ANYBODY WATCH DR WHO? I fuckin love that show. The new Doctor is pretty good and OH MY GOD his amazingly beautiful redheaded companion. I am in love with her.

    The new Doctor (Matt Smith) is not exactly handsome -- he's rather odd-looking -- but he has a certain charm. We have been downloading the shows as they come. The episodes have been rather inventive this season, and if you have gotten to the last Doctor's episodes with that character River Song (played that British doctor on ER), well, SHE returns in a couple episodes too. It's almost like we're back to David Tenant's season with Rose Tyler (played by Billie Piper). I very much recommend this year's shows so far.

    stevie was great, too. always loved whenever he showed up. played by bob odenkirk, from my other favorite mr show with bob & david. i guess he based the agent character on the same person jeremy piven based ari from entourage. agreed about hank too.

    God Pete and Pete was so good.
    Not to mention appearances by Janeane Gerafalo, Steve Buscemi, and David Johanson. One of my favorite lines from the show is Iggy Pop saying with utter disgust "I hate canoes."

    Does anyone else watch...

    ?

    I've almost started a thread about it 3 times, but if you haven't heard of it, you should watch it starting with the first season. It is my favorite show, and everything I like is awesome so you are sure to like it.

    This. What is wrong with people? Why isn't everyone watching this?

    Lickity Spit turned me on to Snuff Box this weekend, but I don't think it's available in the US, so you're on your own finding it. It's basically a series of running gags...each episode contains a number of particular elements. This was one of my favorites, even though you can see them coming a mile away after the first one...

    Also, my favorite Mr Show bit. It's amazing how long they stretch this premise out.

    I download tv and use my ps3 to watch it. Convenience.

    Currently on episode 67 of aqua teen hunger force. If I could be Master Shake, I would. The last series I watched was Entourage. I thought season 6 was weak as shit. Nothing even happened.

    People who like Party Down might also enjoy Head Case, which is available on Netflix Instant. Or, they might hate it. I don't really care either way. This couch is really uncomfortable and it's masquerading like I'm not taller than it but I'm unfooled.

    Party Down looks funny. I keep meaning to check it out.

    Does anyone else watch Friday Night Lights? I've yet to meet another person who has even seen an episode. The show has always been popular with critics, but I don't think it's ever done well in the ratings. I'm kind of shocked that something so well written and acted has managed to stay on NBC for four seasons. I'm just finishing season 3 on Netflix right now. Looking forward to season 4. I keep reading that Zach Gilford does really outstanding work on season 4.

    So, if I had to pick one of these shows to watch on DVD next, which would you pick? The Wire, Damages or Deadwood? Oh, who am I kidding? The Wire, right?

    Except it would be awful and they'd get someone like Steve Guttenburg to host it and it'd only play at 10am on weekdays.

    Ms. Alchemy and I have been having marathons of Adult Swim shows lately. Mostly episodes of Home Movies, Look Around You, and Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!

    I think Adult Swim may be my favorite thing about TV.

    Mine too. I just finished the entire ATHF series last night. In the past year I have watched entire series of Metalocalypse, Venture Bros., Harvey Birdman and Superjail.

    I watched both seasons of Look Around You as they aired. Quality programming. I learned a lot.

    I plan on watching Sealab and Home Movies next.

    It took me 4 or 5 episodes before I even started to grasp the humor in the second season of Look Around You and since there's only 6 episodes I thought I wasn't going to like it. Once it clicked though, it was great and I have watched the episodes a number of times.
