Any one else love Sports Night? Teriffic show; sorely missed. Sorkin/Schlamme >magic pre-West Wing. Awesome cast.

One of my favorite short-lived sitcoms, much easier to watch than the West Wing because it had elements of humor. Before Felicity Huffman was a desperate housewife, she was a take-charge producer. Much better character for her...and William H. Macy's guest appearance is one of the best in the history of TV.

THPJ: I agree totally! What a couple. A dream dinner party: Felicity & Bill, Pam & Jim (ok...mixing up characters & real people...sue me) and Danny & CJ from West Wing. Wouldn't that be fun??

I am almost halfway (sniff, sniff) through my season 1 "Arrested Development" marathon, and I am loving it. A great summertime diversion. I have a little ritual for it: kids go to sleep (not an easy task), dogs get walked, I get out the bag of buffalo wing potato chips and Pepei and sit down in front of the fan to watch two - only two - episodes with my husband. I will definitely have to get the season 2 dvd shortly.

I know I would have enjoyed it while it was still on the air, but I got so sick of Entertainment Weekly scolding me for not watching it that I decided to play to role of a petulant 6-year-old and not watch it. (No, seriously, it debuted a week after my daughter was born, and I was obviously preoccupied with other things AND severely sleep-deprived, and I just never got into it after that).

Anyone excited for the season premiere of Entourage Sunday?

The Office is the best show on TV, but Johnny Drama and Ari Gold are the two best characters.

Jun 8th 2006

A few pages back, people were talking about 24. Doesn't that show cover a day over the season? Does each season cover the next day? When do the characters sleep? These may be goofy questions to regular viewers, but I've never seen an episode and would like to know.

There is a gap in time between "days" (seasons). Otherwise, you're correct, they would never sleep. Either that or it would be the most boring show on tv. ("Stay tuned for the next episode of 24, when Jack ROLLS OVER.)

Me too, LT. I'm alternating between viewing The Office epsiodes and Arrested Development. I love your ritual. Mine is mid-evening too, while I workout. Maybe I should try yours for a day!

Hell yes.

The Office is the best show on TV, but Johnny Drama and Ari Gold are the two best characters.

While I do love Ari (well, love to hate him), I'll take Michael Scott, Dwight Fart Shrute and JAM and Co. over the Entourage guys.

FYI...Turtle and Drama are my faves.

Jun 11th 2006

I love Arrested Development (we are only part way through season 2 here), Veronica Mars, Gilmore Girls, Grey's Anatomy, Bones, Cold Case and some reality TV (Top Model, Project Runway and TAR).

My love for The Office is only challenged by my love for Veronica Mars. Easily my two very favourites.

Jun 14th 2006

I don't make time for many shows. Shows I watch in no particular order, other than "The Office". ~Boston Legal ~LOST ~Veronica Mars I don't have cable so I watch on DVD when its released ~Battlestar Galactica

I got yard work to do. Go to the gym. I belong to a men's league basketball team.

I don't have time or the interest to be a couch potato. I'll never understand the people who "make time" to regularly view nearly a dozen shows a week. But hey to each his/her own, right?

Jun 14th 2006

I am currently engrossed in LOST... I think I have mentioned this recently. I just started watching in the last few weeks, and am doing everything I can to aquire season 2 in order to catch up. Between Lost and the Office, I have some pretty crazy dreams these days.

stella, I too have recently been introduced to Lost...it's good stuff.

Jim's trip to Australia makes me imagine him as a character on Lost...I try to figure out which specific events would make it into his flashbacks...

Jun 16th 2006

Oooh, ooh! How about it? Season 3 begins like this:
Jim's plane trip back from Austrailia results in a crash on a deserted island. He is trying to figure out the island's mysteries while back in the Office, Pam has dumped Roy and starts to really realize how much Jim meant to her now that he has gone missing. Meanwhile, Jim meets up with the survivors of Oceanic Flight 815, and we have a crossover episode before Jim gets miraculously rescued and taken back to Scranton.

I hope you all know that I'm kidding. Just getting bored waiting for Fall.

Jul 16th 2006 edited

Okay, other than the Office, I watch: Seinfeld, Pardon The Interruption, Around the Horn, Cheap Seats, Daily Show, Colbert Report, Everybody Loves Raymond, Law and Order SVU, And pretty much any Philadelphia sporting event thats on (i.e. Eagles, Phillies, Flyers).

Jul 17th 2006

Nothing that different than what other people have said but: Arrested Development, The Office (UK), Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, Late Night With Conan O'Brien, Charlie Rose, Entourage, Strangers with Candy, Ebert and Roeper...I think that's it. I really don't watch much tv, and when I do it's either downloaded or on DVD, or OnDemand.

Aug 2nd 2006 edited

Is anyone else watching "Psych" on USA? I was discouraged by lukewarm reviews, but I am loving it. I think the lead character is very engaging and witty, but not so sarcastic that I want to smack him. I hope it sticks around. I could do without the curmudgeonly best friend/sidekick and the sourpuss police detective, but overall I really like it.

I've also started watching "The Closer," and I really like it, too. I'm even starting to get past Kyra Sedgwick's clown-like neon pink lipstick smile. Why don't they do something about that?

Aug 2nd 2006

LT, your lipstick observations are spot on! I don't get it either. Also, sometimes her southern drawl gets a bit much. Still, I love the show and am rooting for Kyra to win the Emmy.
This summer I am watching: Saved, The Closer, Project Runway, and Entourage. I have also rediscovered Seinfeld in syndication. Almost forget how funny that show was.

Aug 3rd 2006

Not sure if this is the right thread for this, but: I just noticed recently, and I don't even know if there's anything to it...but to me it seems like there's a high-profile, regular character on a successful TV show that could be an 18-year-old Jim Halpert. I'm talking about Eric Forman on "That 70's Show," played by Topher Grace. His mannerisms, timing, sweet disposition, puppy-dog eyes and mop-top hair all make me think "young Jim" when I watch the re-runs now. What do you think?

(My TV faves, of what's currently on: Curb Your Enthusiasm, How I Met Your Mother and The McLaughlin Group, which I've been watching for most of the 24 years it's been on. And I'll join the group that loved the dear, departed Sports Night).

Aug 3rd 2006

dear, departed Sports Night

Yes, DanBoy. I truly miss the show. I looked forward to it almost as much as I now do The Office.

I rented "Dead Poets' Society" last night, and had forgotten that it featured a future Sports Night actor (sorry...don't remember the name...the guy with the cool curved beak of a nose...) And that the lead student's role was played by Dr. House's sidekick, Wilson. Man, were they young in the movie.

Aug 3rd 2006

Has anyone seen It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia? I was thinking about downloading it since I don't have cable. I've been hearing good things. But clearly, you people have superior taste so I was just wondering what y'all thought. And can I just say, NBC airing Project Runway was probably the most exciting thing that happened in the last couple weeks. And I'm still upset they kicked Malan off. Angela should've been outta there!

Aug 4th 2006

Oh good! I'm not the only one watching Project Runway! It is a very good reality show. Besides, American Idol I generally stay away from reality tv. Yeah, Angela wasn't too great but she redeemed herself in a major way this week. I love Michael and Kayne's designs. I hope they make it to the end. Also, I hope PR wins the Emmy!

Aug 4th 2006

PurseGirl, I really liked Michael's dress from week 2. The judges weren't too impressed but I thought it was hot. And I really really hope they win the Emmy too. I really can't stand any other reality tv programs. Well, maybe The Biggest Loser. But that's it.

Aug 5th 2006

I really try to limit my TV watching - I grew up in house with a TV on in every room and had to quit cold turkey to break myself of the habit. So... no cable, and the only broadcast shows I watch regularily are Lost and 24, and - now - The Office. I manage to see Colbert and the Daily Show via the web or friends who tape them for me! Even though 24 and Lost are my "must see" series (actually I enjoyed 24 less each season... but I keep coming back), once I see an episode I quickly move on. Not so with the Office. I've watched several episodes more that once, and certain scenes more than I'd like to admit. It's brilliant.

I am usually a latecomer to any series, and I find myself catching up mid-season. At some point I'll start watching Veronica Mars (my wife's favorite). Last week my wife and I watched all 28 episodes of the Office over 4 days. We'd watch a couple episodes and my wife would say "that's not enough" and we'd watch more. I joked that she was an addict, but, man, I'm hooked evn worse than she is. Actually I think I'm obsessing about it. Here I am wrinting about it on a fan blog.

I came for the comedy and stayed for JAM. What a great romance.

After starting out with a marathon viewing, I think it will be very hard to not go crazy week to week between episodes during season 3.

Aug 5th 2006

For any of you who might not have heard about this... In 2008 Comedy Central will be airing 13 new episodes of Futurama.

Yeah! I heard about this a little while ago and nearly fell off my chair. I LOVE Futurama (but not quite as much as the office!). People look at me funny when I say it's better than The Simpsons, like The Simpsons is the be all and end all of TV shows. Not for me. I love The Simpsons too, but Futurama has it beat on so many levels.

Aug 6th 2006

Any fans of Reno 911! out there? I really like it, and last night Oscar Nunez (yes, our Oscar) guest starred as a serial killer. For real.

Aug 6th 2006

DanBoy don't you mean Oscar was on tonight? The new episodes are on sundays and it just got over in my time zone.

I am having a love affair with Arrested Development. I just watched all of Season 1 and 2 (I can relate to Buster sometimes). But no worries, The Office will forever be my number one favorite show.

Aug 7th 2006

I am having a love affair with Arrested Development.

Me too. Was given Season 1 DVD and am nearly through it. Must get Seasons 2 & 3 now. I've heard the episodes decline in quality over the 3 seasons...just a nasty rumor (anyone)?

I can relate to Buster sometimes

Oh dear...

Aug 8th 2006

The episodes definately don't decline in quality. Season 3 is great, and season 2 has one of the top 3 episodes in the whole series ("Good Greif"). The seasons are different tonally, just as the office's seasons are different. Believe me though, everything builds, and there's so many details and call-backs that are funny.
