This week's "Curb Your Enthusiasm".....the "Wheelchair Episode", if you will, was :lol: x 1,000,000. Only time will tell, but that might be the funniest episode in the series.....watched it again last night, and it was even funnier....great season so far.

Agreed on this week's Curb. Hilarious.

I watched The League on FX last night and thought it was hilarious. I never thought a show about fantasy football would be funny, but man the show had me crying from laughter in some parts. I've heard the second episode is even funnier according a friend who got to see a sneak peek.

Oh hell no....unless you're into melodramatic scenes and ridiculous overacting. The show is awful, and quite frankly, I couldn't look at Fiennes curled brow any longer....I think I made it three, maybe four episodes.

I like it. Fiennes is over the top, but I like the show. Interesting premise. If you like LOST, you won't find FlashForward to be a loss of time every week.

Well, I finished Season 1 of Breaking Bad. Really good stuff, but depressing as hell, especially the first few episodes. Also the first 2 episodes were painfully slow paced. I kept wanting them to just go on with it. But at the same time I applaud them for going so slow--it took guts to draw it out for so long.

Now I'm interested in checking out Sons of Anarchy too--hearing lots of buzz about that one lately too.

SoA's first season was kinda slow, but you have to watch it for this season to make sense. This season just gets better and better every week.

I was going to start in on SoA, but Kristina asked if I could get Two and a Half Men, now that we've finished HIMYM.

I would add in the following to my weekly rota...

After "V" last night since I was already in front of the TV, in bed, I watched two more shows afterwards. First "NCIS" then "The Good Wife". I found myself strangely engaged into both of them. That was 3 for 3. If TV is this good, no wonder ya'll watch so much of this stuff. I even forgot it was election night, and I had just voted. Plus I was a lot less pissed off and stressed out. Will be trying this again next Tues.

So it took a couple of episodes to reel me in, but the last two episodes have been f'ing hilarious.

The scene with Taco in the Mr. McJiblets costume literally had me crying tonight.

"oh you mean anal?"

"I wanna' drop my Lendls in her"

"May I ask why you're dressed as a Russian house DJ?"

:lol:

And those are just the ones I remember...I had a headache from laughing so much at tonight's episode.

I thought the first two episodes were great but last week's was underwhelming. Last night's was hysterical. Taco standing outside Kevin's window in the Mr. McGiblets costume holding the meat cleaver was so great and then he started stealing his stuff oh man. Pretty much everything Taco does makes me laugh.

I've reached the point on this show where I have it on in the background while I mess around on the computer.
