Random Thursday.

* Okay guys, enough with the rioting. You made your point. You didn't like the cartoon. We get it. Sheesh. I see tons of crap I don't like every single day of my life, and I don't go burning shit up. Don't you people have jobs?

* The world is full of people who expect the world to revolve around them. I deal with them every day. Some of them are the doctoral students with whom I work, some of them are in line behind me at Dunkin' Donuts, some of them are in positions of high political power, or shooting their wives and children because their internet porn business failed. Here's how it works: The world does not revolve around you, you self-centered fuckwad, it revolves around lunch. Get over it.

* UPS? Adam Hersh Auctions? Still, really, fuck you.

* I can't believe House slept with Stacy and then sent her back to her husband. I think it was that embarrassing scene in the stairwell that did it.

* Has anyone else seen that billboard for the Sox that features Trot Nixon high fiving some fans? One of those kids, it turns out, was killed by a drunk driver on the day of the Red Sox World Series Celebration Parade back in '04. That's just...I don't know...dayam.

* Is there ANYTHING more ghoulish than a rock band having a reality TV type show to audition for the job to replace their dead lead singer? I don't think so. Gah. Fucking awful.

Here is what I think about House and Stacy: I am SO GLAD that biznatch is gone! I hated her and I hated the stupid House/Stacy storyline which was taking precious time away from House being mean to everyone else and almost killing patients just to see if they are lying to him. Now that she's gone he can start making eyes at ME, finally. Heh. Also, yeah, it was definitely that stairwell scene that did it. *cringe*

As to rude doctoral students: they can, indeed, stuff it. I hate them. Except myself, obviously; I am The Good One. (Well, sometimes. OK, not really. Kind of.)

So true. The FIRST thing to do when you want to ruin a TV show is have the characters get together romantically. How many sitcoms have died this gruesome death? Cheers springs to mind...Makes me want to puke.

Ah yes, characters getting together and spoiling everything. Me believe that am sometimes called the "Moonlighting effect" after the sitcom of the same name. Dave & Maddie had 4 great years, then they fucked and were gone in less than one.

HOuse slept with Stacey?????? God damn it, the new season hasn't started here in Europe yet. I think it is on next FXW next Tuesday.
I love Hugh Laurie, I was watching Jeeves and Wooster last week, you can scarcely believe it is the same chap.

FMC - So sorry! I had no idea the show was even aired over there. I will refrain from posting any spoilers from now on! I feel terrible. But you're right, that Hugh Laurie...we love him over here. But I can imagine some idiot stumbling on Jeeves & Wooster after watching a few seasons of House and going, "Wow, he can really do a great English accent."

Monstee - Yes, and now that I think about it, X-Files comes to mind too. THough I never really watched it, my impression was that once Scully & Mulder did the nasty and had a baby...OVER.

How about when Niles and Daphne finally did the horizontal bop on Frasier? That show was gone soon after, if not by cancellation right away by tired story lines and outright haminess. If they do one of those reunion shows in a few years they better find a way to put the never seen Maris in...She was part of the allure of the show.

Definitely was a huge fan of that show, but stopped watching in the last couple of seasons and probably it was because of that Daphne/Niles storyline. I don't think we should see we never saw Vera on Cheers. Given the jokes about Maris' whole gestalt...who the hell could play her? Some anorexic WASP chick that you can't see when she stands sideways? Eugh.

I meant put the never seen Maris into the storyline. I agree, she was infinitely more interesting when her real appearance was left to our imaginations. I think it took two seasons to kill the show after D & N got together, but there was some humor in the story when D's family from 'cross the pond were introduced, so they might have milked the extra season on that alone.
