The Office, Earl, 30 Rock and that other show

The Office redeemed itself this week. Nice hat tip to Nashua, NH. I was hoping they would show some landmarks. Or maybe they did. I was carving a pumpkin and didn't have my on the screen the whole time. The Cornell bit was good and did you catch Pam saying she covered up the mark her ring makes with make up (or something to that effect)? I'm just going to ignore the whole Pam sub plot. Its tiresome.

30 Rock is brilliant.

Earl, solid as ever. Their writers have great imagination.

The other show, I'm not sold on yet. Perhaps in time. Good line from the girl with baggy eyes, "why didn't you come up with craigslist?" (or something to that effect).

"that other show" is horrible.

i'm not feeling earl anymore. ever since the writers' strike i don't think i've laughed out loud a single time.

season one of 30 rock has been on my netflix queue for awhile. i usually dont start watching a show til it's 2nd or 3rd season, in fear of getting attached to a show that gets cancelled. right now im watching season two of Extras. i recommend renting it.

do you still watch prison break? it has almost become a chore to watch. but i feel like i've stuck with the story for too long to abandon it.

I have to admit that I don't watch any of those shows. I think I got weened off American TV when I lived in the UK to the point that upon my return, there was no going back no matter who was in the show or how good it reportedly was.

What is "that other show"?

gagknee said...

that other show is kath and kim.

you know, heidi, now that i think about it i don't think i have either.

i gave up on prison break, mike, i might rent the dvds. i haven't decided yet. the extras is in my netflix q, but i'm watching curb your enthusiasm now.

I have to say I am warming up to Kath and Kim, although I don't think it will last. I think Selma Blair's facial expressions are hilarious, and my other favorite character is Molly Shannon's boyfriend. Sometimes the humor reminds me ever so slightly of Arrested Development -- like recently when Phil added a sandwich to the menu at work: "The Kath & Phil: The Sandwich That Tastes Like the Love We Make - Warm sausage and tuna on ciabatta with curly fries" -- all said with deadpan straight face and no laugh track.
