Watcha watching on the boob tube? (talk about tv shows)

Postby treat24 » Thu Oct 16, 2008 12:41 pm

There is probably a thread on it... dream?

I know lots of shows have their own threads, Just wanted to make this to see if there are shows I am missing that are truly awesome. I don't miss a lot of shows, but occasionally I do...

I was really diggin' some of the new shows this year, but they have started trailing off for me already. DVR'd but haven't watched My Own Worst Enemy yet... anyone seen it?

We recorded a show last night called 'Time Warp.' It's a concept that's been done, but it seemed interesting enough. Here are the two half-hour segments we recorded, and will probably watch tonight:

Stone Breaking
Time Warp cameras capture the force of a Kun Tao master breaking stone slabs. Mad scientists take the backyard trick of creating Diet Coke and Mentos geysers to astounding new heights. A frisbee dog shows off her acrobatic skills in super slow motion.

Will it Blend?
The Time Warp team's cameras capture the magic of juggling -- from balls to running chainsaws! The team then puts all sorts of things you really shouldn't in a blender...ike butane lighters. And they break a beer bottle with only their hands.

Oh I wanted to mention that I actually just finished watching every episode of the Office that available on Netflix. I had only seen one episode before and I ran through the series in a few weeks. That show is genius. ;-D

I haven't caught any of the new season and probably wont, I have a hard time watching shows while they're running. Has anybody seen the new season? Is it as good as expected? :-?

arguably the best sitcom on tv.

http://www.fancast.com/tv/The-Office/7370/main

weight loss is episode 1 and 2
business ethics is episode 3...

I know you don't like watching along, but you can marathon them after they are done and before the dvds are out :)

I watch many of those Dan, some I don't but I should check out. I singled this out because the premier was quality. I believe it's on tonight or tomorrow night, forget which, but that first episode was well worth it. Seems like the premise woulda made a good movie, we'll see how long they can stretch it. Honestly, the first episode reminded me of Quantum Leap in a way. Watch it and I think you'll understand what I mean.

Quality list there :)

good call on Bizarre foods, I really dig that show.

I pretty much watch like 3 or four shows: Mythbusters, South Park, The Colbert Report and Bizarre Foods. I'm pretty content. :-b ;-D

edit: how could I forget the office, I don't get to see it on the tube much but some of my friends have the seasons on DVD so I watch what I can, great stuff.
