Dude. You can save yourself if you tell us there's hot chicks on there. Otherwise... I've got bad news for you... :-b

Well there were a couple that I thought were good looking, most probably wouldn't think so. Actually the girl that won this season was from Portland and she's cute....kind of a bookwormy, nerdy girl but cute. :-D

I also like watching Top Chef that's on the same channel. ;-D

found it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Durian

Yeah that was the first episode I saw where he actually couldn't stomach swallowing even one bite. He looked like he was gonna hurl. He even says something about how he's eaten all kinds of weird and strange things and he felt a little defeated that what got him was a fruit. :-b

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 :)


i know it's a reboot of a British show, and also reminds me of last years Journeyman (which wasnt renewed :,-( ) hopefully i can check it out in the next week or so...it doesnt help that between me and my wife one of us seems to fall asleep at 9:00 and we both watch these all together

oh yeah...i also watched the Kath and Kim pilot...it wasnt anything special but i have a thing for Selma Blair so it made it tolerable

30 Rock also makes the list whenever that starts back up


Journeyman was ok, but he flipped back and forth through time and there was another time traveler and it was REALLY something that could have made a good 2 hour movie, but it made for a tv show with very little staying power. I can see the comparison. This guy seems to be stuck in 73 or whatever... it also appears it is in his head after being hit by a car... as he can hear the present day voices at times. It also may not have the staying power as people will want him to get back to Lisa Bonet.

I do give every show I can a few episodes, this one might sour, but the pilot was good and Journeyman's pilot was OK. However as it went for a couple it lost the magic for me.

I missed the Kath and Kim Pilot... I should catch that online. Problem: I like selma blair, I hate molly shannon... would you watch given that scenario? :-)

30 rock rules


she's pretty hot in it, i'd at least check it out

So... how big are all of yours? DVRs. I DVR a relatively small number of shows compared to what I've seen here and it seems like I'm always about to run out of space. I"ll clear a few things off in the evening, and the next night when I get home, I'm back to 98% full again. I was told it was ~80 hours of record time, but I just checked and I have 20 shows stored and it's at 95% full. Some are low-def, most are HD. Do you have huge hard drives in your boxes or do you have external drives hooked up or do you just spend hours and hours each night watching stuff and deleting it to make more room??

Same with me and til death... the retool killed the show and Kat Foster was very hot in it. I like Gary unmarried.

scott: my dvrs hold somewhere between 80-100 hours of HD it seems. I've never gotten over 70% and have had upwards of 50 shows. I almost always record in HD. I can not begin to comprehend how much regular tv that is. I think you need to ask your cable company for a new DVR. My old one from a few years ago barely held 20 shows like yours does now. DVRs have gotten much better and bigger in the last couple years.

You people clearly have no children. You wouldn't have nearly enough time to watch that much TV if you did, and even if somehow you did, your DVR would be full of kid's shows.
