My Name is....

I am shocked I have not seen anyone mention My Name Is Earl (grant it I got tired and stopped so I apologize to anyone who mentioned it first, the bees will get me soon).... one of the funniest, cleverest, well written comedies I have seen in a long time!

Life lessons simply put, "Do good things, good things happen. Do bad things, bad things happen."

if u have not caught this i highly recommend it!!!

don't know Hugh Laurie

so can't comment on that, but I sure do like LaPaglia. Just looked him up on IMDB (great resource!) and he sure is Australian. Also has some other interesting credits I should check out.

Yes, I do love mysteries. Books too, but only certain authors, and then i get mad because I'm done with the new book and have to wait another year for the next one.

Without a trace

I dig that one too marye. There are some really engrossing and more unusual stories in that one. Seems that we have that in common, eh? A liking for mysteries, based on the Lynley discussion from earlier, and now this. Didn't know that Anthony La Paglia is australian, but then I only know his German dubbed voice anyhow. Is he as good as Hugh Laurie losing his Brit. accent for Dr. House?

Ugly Betty! Grey's Anatomy! Without a Trace!

(or, What I watched last night.)

Loved 'em all.

Unfortunately it is just about impossible to discuss Ugly Betty without a dozen spoilers (and, to a lesser extent, Grey's Anatomy as well, at least as regards Izzy's unexpected medical adventure). And I've gotta say, whoever's responsible (and I think Salma Hayek has a lot to do with it), Ugly Betty has me completely hooked, despite being, in essence, a parody of the soap opera genre for which I've never had the slightest use. I mean, lame as it is, I care a lot about Hilda and Santos. I root for Clare. I love Justin. Etc.

And now that Without a Trace, which I've always loved, is back on Thursdays, it's a great TV night at my house. I do regularly marvel at how Anthony LaPaglia manages to lose his Australian accent without a trace...

Family Wars

I hope I'm not the only one here to have caught The Family Guy's season premier last night! Very funny parody of Star Wars, among other cultural tidbits, from mustard to Chevy Chase. OK, it's has been done before but I found it much funnier than expected. Peter as Han, Stuey as Darth Vader and Cleveland as R2D2 was a brilliant way to dumb down one of America's most loved sci-fi movies of all time. Bravo!

yes, you go Candice!

I actually like Tom Selleck, no doubt because I missed the movie in question but am a serious Magnum-head. I was once at a gathering of my nerd pals and somehow the subject came up of how funny it would be to have a sitcom of Magnum and his now-teenage daughter. Wait, someone said, Magnum had a daughter? And half a dozen people who had never said word one about Magnum before immediately fell all over themselves to tell the tragic tale of Magnum, Michelle, and little Lily. It was one of those moments...

Only saw Selleck in person once, at some Apple do in the '80s or '90s. He is REALLY TALL. Also, pretty easy on the eyes.

Never worshiped him exactly

But I kinda always liked his name! ;-) Very French cool, and VERY familiar!

And we can't talk about Boston Legal without mentioning Candice Bergen, who kicks ass! I haven't liked Tom Sellick so much since I saw "In and Out". Whoops-wrong thread for that comment perhaps?

Frumps rule! My daughter and I both revel in wearing bizarre and unstylish clothing combinations, in favor of comfort and practicalilty.

yeah, James Spader is a find...

and let's just say I've been worshipping at the shrine of Rene Auberjonois since he was at A.C.T. in the '60s, though (declasse though it may be for a guy who started out doing Moliere plays) my favorite remains his Deep Space Nine role. Odo rules.

Agree that TV Barbara is not nearly frumpy enough, and I say this as a world-class frump!
