Been watching the following on Netflix...


Portlandia... a gold mine of hilarious sketch comedy!
 

I love Portlandia. My dad hates it and thinks it is retarded. And Carrie Brownstien is such a hottie. She makes the perfect hipster, too. Her music is pretty good, too. She's a musican. YouTube it.

I looked her up a few days ago when I first got into the show. She is definitely both hip and cute.

Season finale was last night for season 1. It was only 8 Episodes because first season. Yeah, pretty much all the doctors are cute. I think my favourite is:



You have to love those Latina women. One thing I like in a woman is prominent cheekbones, something you are sure to find in Latin women.

Tonight I'll watch Welcome To Sweden on NBC.  The pilot was last week. It's a nice change from all the dark dreary crime shows.   It is in both Swedish and English, with subtitles at times.

The Hunt on History Channel which shows people hunting Kodiak Brown Bears in Alaska. Very interesting show. I wonder what the meat from those beasts taste like.

I've wanted to ask my neurologist, who works at the hospital, what he thinks of hospital shows. Same with lawyers. Law and Order is pretty fetched, especially the sequels, but The Good Wife seems to be less simplistic.

I love those bear hunting shows, JamesR. I wonder what bear meat tastes like, too. I figure it has to be at least decent. It would be a good way to live, food wise, since you could survive half a year or more on a whole bear--a family could! I want to start hunting. It would be a much less expensive way to get duck and goose.

I know that Grey's Anatomy was very popular with the gossipy nurses and techs for a while.  Everyone wants to pretend their life is exciting.  I'm reminded of my sister-in-law who was married to a soldier.  She loved Army Wives and wanted to create more drama in her life, which she didn't need.  I could watch a few episodes of Scrubs, but after a while, it's all the same.  It'd be like me trying to watch a drama show about computer server techs/customer service.  No, thanks.

I'd be interested in knowing what your neurologist thinks or if he even has time for TV shows.

I also was an EMT and all the firefighter/paramedic shows (Chicago Fire or Rescue Me comes to mind), boring.

I work in the legal field and I find shows about lawyers to be great, mostly because just about everything they do and say would never actually happen in real life. I imagine it is the same about shows about other professions.

Not sure I will ask him. I was thinking of my old one, who was younger and had a better bedside manner. This one is older, likely more experienced and everything but he's much less personal and nerdy. My old one was very interested in my interest in religion and Orthodoxy because he was really interested in the case of Fydor Dostoyevsky's epilepsy because of the writer's deep faith and interesting episodes during seizures. I think he might have wondered if my right brain domination might help determine the focal point of my seizures. They've tried to determine Dostoyevsky's focal point though it is all speculation for nerdy med students and so forth who want to write papers on the matter. So the conversation was much less formal, which is better I think. Still professional. This one I doubt I'll ask. I never got into Grey's Anatomy. My sister and mom were big into it. I am just glad they spelled Grey the right way. "House" was fun. I think everyone could like that one.

I've been watching House for about three weeks now, and I'm a few episodes into Season 5. I was a bit annoyed after Cameron, Chase and to a lesser extent Foreman got written mostly out of the show... but the three new doctors have slowly grown on me. I got a book about "House and Philosophy" from the library, which has been somewhat ok. There have been a couple fairly interesting chapters, but also a few that were written by philosophy professors yet seem like they were written by an average undergrad psych or premed major who is struggling to do a paper for a moral philosophy course. I have generally avoided the "X and Philosophy" type books, and having read this one is probably going to reinforce that tendency.

Just finished watching the second season of Vikings. What a great show. It is on the History Channel, so clearly it isn't going to be historically accurate, but the action is quite entertaining.

But people only act like real people in Cops. Or, you can file this under "One thing I don't like about House/Bones/etc." :P In regular TV shows the lawyer/doctor/detective/etc. usually has absurdly flimsy evidence for their conclusions, yet people fold in seconds because the episode is nearly over the hero must always triumph. On Cops you see what usually happens: they can have DNA evidence, 14 witnesses, including the suspect's own brother, and video camera footage from 3 separate places, all proving that someone is guilty, and yet they'll still be saying that it must be some mistake and that they weren't even in that area.

Better one is Forensic Files. Or to watch interrogation "The First 48". I feel like banging my head against a wall watching them on Law and Order do things that would get them fired among other things. And NCIS the suspect asks for a criminal and you have a sexy Ziva or angry Gibbs telling them why they do not need a lawyer and threatening them. When they ask for a lawyer on "The First 48" the questioning stops because they know what happens if it doesn't when they go before the judge. But Forensic Files shows how hard it is to get an arrest warrant for a suspect. They have to tail the person often, try to get a warrant for their DNA or obtain it by getting it when they throw away a straw in a public place or something. Often the case is strong, but only after a lot of work. They usually go through one or two suspects.

I kid, "Cops" is fun when there's nothing on TV, especially when I can say, "Hey, I've lived there!"

"First 48" is good too.

Every time I see a 'Cops' episode from some city in which I've lived, I have to smile. :) (Never been arrested, I just like to see stuff I know on TV.)

'The First 48' is really good, too. I find some parts hard to watch, like when they first tell the family of the person who died, and everyone just mills around in shock in front of the house.

Ha! I don't care for that show either. Anyway, I am watching



Mom got me into it. On the one hand I like it obviously, but of course it has the homosexual character in it, and it's a political White House show that is The West Wing plus some. And it really makes a caricature of a religiously conservative politician while glorifying the moderate, pro-immigration Republican president. It's also glorifies a woman playing god more or less because she will always do good in the end, even if she has to do a little harm first. Somehow, I like it. It actually makes the White House look virtuous though because it glorifies it and the sins are far too venial compared to the real sins on the west wing.

I'm watching Everybody Loves Raymond (got back to it recently after a long break from it -- I probably mentioned it several months ago in the "Sit-coms" thread) although it's not exactly one of my all-time favorite shows.

I'm hanging in there.. It does clear the room of people with good taste...Not me ! I'm simple

I kid, "Cops" is fun when there's nothing on TV, especially when I can say, "Hey, I've lived there!"

"First 48" is good too.

Every time I see a 'Cops' episode from some city in which I've lived, I have to smile. :) (Never been arrested, I just like to see stuff I know on TV.)

'The First 48' is really good, too. I find some parts hard to watch, like when they first tell the family of the person who died, and everyone just mills around in shock in front of the house.


The First 48 is very good, although very disturbing.

Not really watching it at this precise moment (or week), but I usually watch a couple episodes at some point during the month, so...

Thought on the trailer for season 5 of The Walking Dead?



*Spoilers (kinda)*



At first I was a bit annoyed about them showing so much after they leave Terminus, but then we all knew they would get out of there, it was just a matter of who and how and when. I'm also apprehensive about them doing a story arc that goes on for another season (possibly more?) about trying to get to DC. I'm not sure that long-term storytelling is their strong suit. Er... well I'm not sure what their strong suit is, exactly, but dragging things out over many episodes really isn't it. Also, Beth.

Salute Your Shorts, sometimes remembered as "Camp Anawanna," it had two seasons on Nickelodeon in the early 90s, and was in reruns afterwards.

Just started to watch 'Longmire' and 'MI-5.' Still watching 'Luther,' and I couldn't get through the day without a couple doses of 'Peppa Pig.'

Favorite comedy lately: 'The Vicar of Dibley.' :)

How It's Made: Season 13 (only one season on there now! :( )

I noticed that actually.

Although, in any case, I think I prefer "How do they do it?"

Walking with Monsters: Life Before Dinosaurs

Short series, but very interesting. I'll probably watch it for a third (or fourth) time, if I haven't already, one of these days.
