    Damn. Just watched "The Body" episode of Buffy. That breed of television is exceedingly rare.

    The pilot's been online for awhile. It's relatively solid.

    from the looks of the trailer, they went as far as remaking the original pilot with a different guy playing todd's lackey. kind of strange

    Oh, I skipped over the trailer. If so...odd

    edit: yeah, they definitely reshot a lot of the same scenes and replaced the assistant. he also seems to be wearing entirely different clothing in the trailer.

    .Anya's breakdown is particularly heartbreaking. There are so many little details that kill me.

    Whedon's commentary is awesome in itself, too. Stunning bit of television. It seems to me that Gellar is a slightly underrated actress.

    I hate when she gets all outraged though. You know what I'm taking about. "HOW. DARE. YOU. THINK THAT I DON'T LOVE YOU." She has fine moments, but god does she have awful ones too.

    The second half of season 5 was pretty dark and nihilistic and brutal, thematically. Much improvement over the second half of season 4, that's for sure.

    I can't wait til this summer season is over and all my beloved shows are back on.

    Supernatural can't come back soon enough!

    after a few viewings of the garry shandling show, i don't think it stands the test of time. so, so dated. i mean, i'm sure it was quite funny in the 80s, but i don't love it nearly as much as larry sanders. it's weird to see garry shandling doing that tv show host thing he makes fun of in larry sanders.

    i finished arrested development this weekend. i really liked the show, but it was kinda the same schtick every week. i still laughed. marc, what was that david cross show you mentioned? i want to find that on netflix.

    I watched two episodes of Skins (on netflix instant). So far, I like it -- I think Chia recommended it?

    The Big C is really good - much better than what's left of the mishandled Weeds. Laura Linney is incredible.

    Frankie Boyle is getting his own show, which is the best news I've heard all day.

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2010...annel-4-series

    Boyle sprang to fame on the BBC2 topical panel show Mock The Week, and was censured by the BBC Trust after an episode in which he described Olympic Swimmer Rebecca Adlington as "someone who's looking at themselves in the back of a spoon".

    He also caused controversy with a joke about the Queen in which he suggested she might say: "I'm now so old that my pussy is haunted", and an appearance on the BBC Radio 4 show Political Animal in which he compared Palestine to a cake being "punched to pieces by a very angry Jew".

    The unapologetically offensive comedian appeared to meet his match at a standup gig earlier this year when the mother of a child with Down's syndrome objected to a routine in which he mocked people with the condition. Boyle was later said to have described it as "the most excruciating moment of my career".

    Boyle quit Mock the Week last year and went on to have a surprise bestseller with his memoir, My Shit Life So Far. He has since performed to more than 100,000 people on a 113-date UK tour called I Would Happily Punch Every One Of You in the Face. His Channel 4 show is expected to begin in November in a late-night slot.

    Boyle told the Sun the show was "originally called Deal With This, Retards, but for some reason they just felt, I don't know, that maybe advertisers would get put off".

    huge fan of that show when it was airing, but i think fx gives him complete freedom, as long as he stays within his low budget. not sure if he had that on hbo. his wife from lucky louie has been on a few episodes, so that was cool.

    Louie is way better than Lucky Louis, but it was still a fun show. It didn't stick with me like Louie does.

    louie seems better setup to cover a wider variety of topics, more so than lucky louie might have been able to. maybe due to it being setup in a sitcom-like format, even though it wasn't a traditional one by any means.

    the laugh track on lucky is weird, but i still dig it. i'm bummed though because the netflix disc is scratched for the last episode

    also, not sure if i've mentioned this or not yet, but i've been getting into battlestar galactica. the new one. i'm on season 2 and we just discovered xena the cylon. starbuck & gaius are my favourites.

    Battlestar Galactica started out ferocious, and then slumped dramatically later on. Redeemed itself a little, but I never quite got back into it in time for the conclusion. I really must make the effort, Baltar and Six were just awesome, generally.

    I have to say, I sort of thought Tricia Helfer was just there as nerd bait, but it turns out she's a pretty good actress. I like the neat little distinctions between the Six variants.

    I also have not finished this one up because of the slumpage. Season 3 was just abysmal.

    I'm standing on the VIP line for an afternoon taping of The Daily Show, the special distinction thanks to my not quite making it in with the rest of the rabble back in May. All the chumps who've been standing on line all day are giving me the stink eye since I've only just turned up and am still getting in ahead of them. I have no power and no connections, but am still thoroughly enjoying people wanting to stab me in the face.

    http://www.epixhd.com/invite/ gets you an invite to this site, which is showing the latest standup by louie ck. it's good for seven days, i think.

    edit: it's not the one he did for showtime awhile back, but a new one called "hilarious."

    I don't know if it's on the website, but I saw a new David Cross special on Epix the other day as well. I think Eddie Izzard did one too. It's a pretty good channel.

    New shows are here. I watched Raising Hope and Running Wilde. Hopefully it's a coincidence that they both are named "Verb-ing Punny Character Name." Hope is from the guy who created My Name Is Earl, and Wilde is from the creator of Arrested Development. Surprisingly, Hope is the stronger show so far, but they both earn points for originality. Hope had a complicated setup, but should now settle down, and Martha Plympton is great as a white trash former teen mother. Wilde may turn out to be too gimmicky, I can't see it going on too long, but I laughed.

    So, I just started watching "The Boondocks." Show is brilliant. "The Booty Warrior" is the best episode ever.

    Boris - 7/29 - The Mohawk
    NIN/Soundgarden/ - 8/14 - Austin 360
    Woods - 8/20 - Holy Mountain
    Jamie xx - 8/27 - The Mohawk
    Little Dragon - 8/31 - Moody Theater
    Ty Segall - 9/5 - The Mohawk
    Seth Troxler - 9/5 - Vulcan Gas Company
    Black Lips/King Khan & BBQ Show - 9/12 - J. Lorraine Ghost Town
