Lets talk about our favories!
The only show I watch religiously is Lost. Although I am a fan of That 70's Show.
Only thing I have been really stuck on is BSG. Most of the good stuff is no longer in production. Still waiting to see something original and new that isn't a remake or ripoff, just like movies.
Drive! - Killer new show.
24 - Any show where the main character uses a cigar snip to chop the finger off a Russian Ambasador is OK in my book!
Robin Hood - BBC slant on the legend. Pretty good.
House - Sarcastic & Brilliant. He's what I aspire to become.
Heroes - VERY cool show.
BSG - Didn't like the 1st Season. Been hooked from Season 2 on.. Kinda miss Starbuck..
I gave up on Lost, all I have been watching regularly is BSG and Heroes but only because Chris tapes them for me since I don't have a tv at the moment.
But that doesn't matter since most of my favorite shows are on dvd, so I just watch them on my computational device.
As you probably have already guessed I love Futurama
But I also love Firefly, Keen Eddie and a lot of other stuff Fox has canceled. Also the Adult Swim line up and a lot of other cartoons, Spaced, Monty Python's Flying Circus, and Hetty Wainthrop Investigates.
As for movies here's my short list in no particular order...
Star Wars:A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, The Return Of The Jedi obviously
Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert
Lord of the Rings trilogy
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Evil Dead 2
The Sixth Sense
Ed's Next Move
The Fifth Element
The City of Lost Children
Hedwig and the Angry Inch
The Big Lebowski
From Dusk Till Dawn
28 Days Later
7 Faces of Dr. Lao
Army of Darkness
Harold and Maude

The Day the Earth Stood Still
Day of the Dead
John Carpenter's The Thing
Never Ending Story
Shaun of the Dead
Dawn of the Dead
Monty Python's Life of Brian
...ok I'll stop now
Ok... That was the 'short' list, lol
And that's not all, its the varaity in which I watch them,
the other night I started with "The Day the Earth Stood Still" then went on to "Santanico Pandimonium" (which for those who dont know is about a nun who has sex with the devil then starts killing people so she can become mother superior, and its from Mexico!)
Then I rounded off the evning with some Hetty Wainthrop Investigates!
For those not aware, 'Santanica Pandemonium' was the name of Salma Hayeks character in 'From Dusk til Dawn'. Inspired from a movie poster for the movie...
Oh yeah, She was REALLY sexy in that one movie where it looked like she had a caterpillar strapped to her forehead......lol
That would be Frida...
That explains why I have always found Chewbaca strangely attractive!
Chewie isn't really a Wookie but an italian woman. Take that Gia's mustache...
Ouch. Hey, fuzzy girls have feelings to.
I'm up tonight (because I was able to convince my manager to let me work from home two nights a week ) watching Episode III. I actually forgot how much I liked it. So many little subtle things..
(And then of course ther is the twelik at the concert... )
Seriously though.., very cool movie in the series!
Do you guys (and gal) agree that it was the best of the prequels? (I think this is a given)
oh yeah it was. Now as for my favorites:
TMNT (both...and the episode they were in Power Rangers)
Time Warp Trio
Smallville (just a little)
Sabrina the Teenage Witch
Krypto the Superdog
Tom and Jerry
thats about it for TV
The Scarlet Pimpernel
that's it (gasp I though i liked more!)
I don't have much good to say about the prequels in general, but as far as the best, I would have to say episode 2, if only for the attempts at building an epic battle scene. Still it makes me a bit sad to see these and think that a lot of younger kids think these new movies are better than the originals. They just have no substance.
All I am going to say for Ep.3 is
If I had to choose. I would say Episode III. Of the three it does have the most substance. Not quite as much substance as an episode of Power Rangers, but it's close.
YAY POWER RANGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and just so ya know I am of the new star wars generation but love the originals to pieces...LUKE IS SO MUCH HOTTER THEN ANAKIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Luke?Hot?Same sentance? DOES NOT COMPUTE!!!
I think you just broke my robot.
Watching Episode IV again, I realize that luke is almost as emo as Anikin. "if there's a bright center to the universe, you're on the planet furthest from it..."
"But I was going to the Tasche Station to pick up some power converters"
Well you know where you're gonna get a lot of sand when you live on a desert planet ...
You see, that was the thing that always killed me. Everyone always bangs on Hayden Christiansen, and I'm not saying he's a great actor, but, Mark Hamill was just as whiney. I mean when did Mark Hamill become Marlon Brando?
Oh, Biggs is right.....(throws tantrum, puffs out lower lip)It's just not fair.
Quick somebody call a WAHHHHHHHHmbulance.
But, at the same time Lucas always swears that's the character he wrote as is the case with Anakin. Is it Lucas covering for his product? Could be. Just my thought.
