Observations

Gabriele Pauli, Germany's most glamorous politician, suggested that marriages should only last seven years. Of course, German Catholics (and some in America) got righteously pissed off at the very suggestion that marriages aren't sacred and powerful and should last forever and so on and so forth. Coming from a country where there are more divorces than there are marriages, I wonder what the big flap is. I mean, I know what it is, really, but come on. She's not exactly wrong. Germany has a high divorce rate, too. The real problem with her statement is that she assumes that Western Civilization isn't still made up of whiny, greedy infants who care more about appearances and giving lip service to traditions. The West isn't ready for that kind of freedom; there are still too many people out there who shake with rage and discomfort at the thought of anyone enjoying themselves. Nice try, though; I'm all for the seven-year limit.

A sort-of-related topic: I saw a bunch of Fay Wray movies recently, and I was delighted to discover that in each of the movies I saw there was a surprising amount of visible nipple. Ah, those pre-Code days. That's part of the reason I love movies from the twenties and early thirties so much. Er, not the nipples--not just the nipples--but the sense of actual adulthood, even in the trashiest and silliest movies. Can you imagine what movies would be like today if filmmakers of the 1930s had been able to explore creative means of expressing sexuality? I don't blame the Code for hampering them, though--I blame America. Sorry, but I do. America finds a disturbing amount of security and comfort in infantilism. There are far too many people in this country who want to spoil being a mature and intelligent adult because they think the body is icky. Why do we let them ruin our lives and tell us we need them to make our decisions for us? Why is every movie a PG-13 exploration of the plight of giant robots looking for a magic car battery? Why is the medium of film not anywhere near as emotionally and formatively developed as literature? And why is it just accepted that that's the way things are? The solution to keeping children away from things you don't want them to see is... well, there isn't one, they'll see it anyway. Just educate them, turn them into thinking people, instead of dumbing everything down so that no one ever has to use their own judgment.

"We're dumbing everything down to the level of a three-month old, because we're terrified that somewhere a three-month old might have a bad afternoon." -- Frank Miller

**********
This is the guy who is probably going to end up playing Captain Kirk in the Star Trek movie? Well, there went my last shred of interest. Another movie for children.

**********
Here's a cool Doctor Who spoiler that might not be that spoilery:
The fourth series will feature the return of the Sontarans. Their leader is going to be played by Christopher Ryan, aka Mike from The Young Ones. Which means the Sontarans are going to be really cool, right? Like the guy said who was looking forward to something, I'm really looking forward to something.

**********
Jim Broadbent is going to play Professor Horace Slughorn in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. I wanted Bob Hoskins, but since a character in this series has only been cast with the actor I wanted exactly one time (Imelda Staunton), I wasn't expecting that. Still, Broadbent's wonderful, so I look forward to that.

**********
A good way to make fun of someone who loves the new, super-serious remake of Battlestar Galactica: tell them the show inherently makes no logical sense to you without Muffit, the robot dog. Sci-fi fans are so pissy and serious these days they become infuriated at the mention of anything cute.

**********
Britney Spears was supposedly filmed having sex with a stranger she met while on vacation. Because that's the right move to take when you're trying to get those kids back.

**********
Brooke Shields told People magazine that she'd love to have a third child. Not that anyone's asked me, but I'd love to help her out with that.

... I know, but maybe one day a celebrity will take me up on that offer.

**********
How's this for your typical male paradox? Elizabeth Hasselbeck is a terrible person. She's the kind of woman who has no ambition in life other than to be a well-off wife and mother and have a place to spout her crackpottery. She has no opinions other than what Oprah, her priest, her father, her husband, and her president have told her to think. She is fucking evil. She is Kathie Lee Gifford evil.
So, naturally I want to fuck her incredibly hard. Don't ask me to explain why, but I just want to fuck the hell out of her.

**********
Oh, the curse of being a gossip blogger. To be born with an interest in boobs but to not be able to understand physiognomy in any way. No, gossip bloggers, Hilary Duff did not get her breasts done. She just found a really good bra and put a little weight back on. I'm going to explain this one last time: breasts are glands that are mostly fat and water. When a woman loses a ton of weight, they get smaller, because losing weight causes you to lost fat and water. Some girls have bigger boobs than others, just like not every guy has the same tiny little prick you do. Jessica Simpson's breasts can be that big because, genetically, she hit the Power Ball. Sometimes, like Duffster in this picture here, they're pushed up by a bra specially designed to push your breasts up. If a girl stays really thin and suddenly has enormous boobs--like Lindsay Lohan, for example--then they're usually fake--like Lindsay Lohan, for example. Every girl is not naturally flat until they buy their way to being curvaceous. Will you finally get that straight?

**********
See? It's all a rumor. Miley Cyrus isn't pregnant, so you can all stop looking at me that way. How many times do I have to tell you're we're just friends?
Seriously, though, the way the gossip bloggers (them again) went nuts over this story really says a little something about the decline of American standards. Who looks at that type (which doesn't even match) and the badly-written, badly-edited, grammatically-incorrect item and thinks it's real?
For God's sake, you idiots, "CD" isn't even capitalized! I know American magazines are bad, but they're not quite that bad yet.

**********
Speaking of sex and young girls--which I seem to be doing a little too much here--some people went crazy over these pictures of Vanessa Hudgens with her friends.
As you can imagine, there were a number of "Disney Star in Lesbian Photos!" headlines. Jeez, calm down, will ya? Photos like these don't denote lesbianism. Am I wrong, or is this just the way girls seem to goof for the camera these days? It seems to be the 21st century girl equivalent of giving the finger. Are we that repressed that we have to see teenagers fucking in everything?

**********
Natalie Portman is nude in this short Wes Anderson film. Apparently it's a 17-minute prelude to The Darjeeling Limited. Granted, I only liked one of his films, but I didn't think Anderson was that bad a filmmaker that he needed a 17-minute intro to his movie. Seriously, he couldn't work any of that into the movie? He's so insecure in his ability to tell a story, that he needs to create a whole supplemental work to get his point across? You can't just, I don't know, write? What kind of filmmaker is that? Answer: not a creative one. Really, more of a terrible one. But hey, at least he likes good music, people seem to find that an acceptible substitute for story and writing and character these days. After all, Cameron Crowe keeps getting shit made.

**********
So, in response to vetoing the renewal and expansion of the State Children's Health Insurance Program--in response to his personal decision that poor children in America don't really need health care--Presidenth Duh said: "No one goes without health care in America. After all, you just go to an emergency room."

So, basically: "Eat cake, bitches!"

As we know, using tax money to pay for health care is bad. Unless it's for politicians, who get health care that we pay for with our taxes. Oh, but they're better than us, I guess.

**********
Bravo! Check out David Letterman embarrassing and dismantling Paris Hilton on his show:



Absolutely brilliant. All she wants is to push her products and do her "prison made me a stronger person" catchphrase bullshit, and he checks her at every turn. He's probably pissed that she's even on his show.

And what's with Paris trying to cop Princess Diana's look now? Nice try, sweetie. You don't have that kind of poise. You have no kind of poise.

**********
I have to say, I'm still bothered by something that happened a couple of weeks ago on Real Time with Bill Maher. At the suggestion that Israel's continued existence is not worth American lives and American money, Bill suddenly went from his usual, interested self to the kind of dogmatist he usually detests. Instead of hearing someone out, he went right to the emotional response (Janeane Garofalo called him on it, too). This is a guy who, in the course of the same episode, said that skepticism of everything is important because "when you stop asking questions, it's a religion." But to jump right to Israel's defense on that... I don't know, I was surprised and disappointed by his kneejerk reaction to an important critical point. It's the same attitude that gets us into wars in the Middle East, frankly. And Bill's lame defense of Israel--"It's a democracy in a part of the world that has none."--was right out of the political playbook. Bill Maher has lost some credibility with me because of that. Not because we disagree on Israel, but because he was just so fervent about toeing the liberal line. He got angry, he said, because someone spit on his beliefs. Jeez, Bill, way to not be able to take what you dish out. So much for intelligent discourse...

Seriously, when is America going to be able to have a sensible, reasonable debate about Israel? We shouldn't have to equate all Jews together with Israel. In America, we can be critical of our government or our policies and not be anti-American. Why is someone who is critical of the Israeli government and Israeli policies always quickly labeled an anti-Semite? A lot of their policies flout international law, and they've committed a hefty share of war crimes. Historically, they've goaded other nations into war over land and sea access, and they've made a policy out of disproportionate retaliation, which is a war crime. There are a million unexploded fragments in Lebanon right now because of the cluster bombing of that country, and a lot of our politicians have no problem with that--Lieberman and Hillary Clinton make a lot of noise about Israel's right to defend itself, but how is killing thousands of Lebanese children in retaliation for the deaths of 17 Israeli citizens self-defense? Do you know that Israel has 1000 Palestinians in "administrative detention" right now? And yes, they are being tortured. How can we be against our own country torturing prisoners, but not our ally's? Jimmy Carter compared the way Israelis treat Palestinians to apartheid, and that's exactly what it is. And we count them as an important ally? A government with racist policies? Why? Because they're westernized and we think the Arabs aren't? That's crazy.

Is it really still Holocaust guilt? Because I notice in this country we don't bend over backwards for black people out of slavery guilt, and slavery is something we actually did. The Holocaust isn't. Yes, the Holocaust was a great moral crime but, as Jonathan Tasini said in an article in the most recent issue of Playboy, "the Holocaust should not be used as a moral shiled to suppress honest criticism of Israel." I'm not an anti-Semite by any means. But I do think that the Israeli government has no morality as long as it continues to occupy the West Bank and torture Palestinians for the great crime of already having homes where the Israelis wanted to live.

Sorry, Bill, but a little more critical thought would've been great there.

**********
Hey, you want to see something absolutely horrible? Bam!
Ha ha! Sorry about that, I just know a couple of readers who are horrified every time I put up a picture of this ass. How does he look worse than he did the last time I had him up? Dude, quit working out. You look like the Carrot Top from the Black Lagoon! Creepy!

Pleasant dreams!

Ashley Jensen Comes to Mars

While relaxing at my palatial Martian mansion after a long day of providing security at a nerd gathering, I heard a knock at the castle door. Always on call to listen to the citizens of my adopted homeworld, I answered and, to my surprise, saw Ashley Jensen, one of Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein's adopted actors!

I assumed she'd made the trip to Mars to bring some news of my old friend and candidate, the best choice for America, the future President Monkerstein. But to my shock, she said: "I'm afraid Monkerstein's kicked me oot of the hoose."

"Goodness!" I said. "But he adopted you, he did!"

"I know," she said, "but apparently I was impeding his work and now it's back to the orphanage for me. Unless some nice man, like a Martian Prime Minister or something, wants to step in and give a girl a break..."

I realized the poor girl was fishing. She must've heard what a huge fan of Ugly Betty I am and thought, what with the massive amount of space I've got here, that she could find herself a good home on Mars.

"But Ashley," I protested, "I've already got my hands full with ministerial duties, plus my long-distance relationship with Scarlett Johansson, plus my side job as a security guard at comic book conventions, plus my other adopted actors."

"Pleeeeeeeeeease?"


"And besides," I went on, "I've talked before about how I find Scottish women oddly passionless and sexless. Er, um... no offense."

"None taken... jerk."


Except for that little cutie Kelly Macdonald, she's the exception to the rule.

"What about Sheena Easton?" she asked.

"Well, obviously she's some kind of freak of nature. Like Tarzan among the apes. Um... no offense..."

"But don't you think that I'm unnaturally pretty for a Scotswoman?"

"Well, yes, but..."

"And I've got loads of British Comedy Awards. You're a fan of Extras, right?"

"Oh, yes, of course..."

"And I know how to make an entrance at parties!"

...

...

What the hey. Ashley Jensen, consider yourself adopted. Welcome to Mars!

Something Fun I Said to That Woman I Hate at Work

And now she's not talking to me. Success!

We were talking about how she refuses to acknowledge Halloween (my favorite day of the year), and my atheism came into the conversation. Pleasant work-related topic, I know.

SHE: "But don't you at least have some kind of understanding with the Lord?"

ME: "Yes. I understand that he doesn't exist, and he doesn't care what I think because he's not real."

It was like pressing a giant Shut Up Button. My day is already exponentially better!

I Love You, Princess Ardala!

Today is Pamela Hensley's birthday. Having just finished watching the first season of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, the dumbest SF show in history (that's not the original Battlestar Galactica), I can conclude that Buck was a complete fool for not choosing Princess Ardala. Not that Colonel Deering doesn't continue to be an object of fantasy and a terrific soldier... but, oh, Princess...

Happy birthday, Mrs. Vincent, wherever you are!

UPDATE 8:40 PM:
Apparently, Mrs. Vincent put out a cookbook just three years ago.
It's supposed to be pretty good. She also narrates audiobooks. As far as I can tell, that's all she's been doing. I have something for her for her birthday, if she wants to collect it.

Tiffany's Birthday

IT's Tiffany's birthday today. I'm still a Tiffany fan, and I have been since I was 11 years old. That was an age where teenage girls seemed so sophisticated and mysterious (and, thankfully, they were babysitting me). I'm glad she's still recording. So, since it's her birthday, I thought I'd put up her latest video, "Feels Like Love." I thought it was pleasant, and it's turning into a shitty day, and Tiff always makes me feel good.

The Health Report: Week 42

Gandhi

Today is the anniversary of the birth of Mohandes K. Gandhi. Someone sent me an email about it today and about how we should remember his work and peace and blah blah blah. I sent them an email back mentioning that Gandhi used to test his celibacy and libidinous urges by sleeping with teenage virgins (including his granddaughter). He was also a racist and engaged in classism. Famously, he refused to allow his wife Kasturba to take penicillin for bronchial pneumonia while in prison, instead leaving her fate up to God. Perhaps unsurprisingly, God didn't save her; Gandhi took it as a test of faith. Six weeks later, Gandhi had no problem taking quinine to get over malaria. No points for consistency in faith.

My point is, don't tell me that Gandhi is a great ambassador of peace. He said some good things and helped get Britain (a Britain significantly weakened by World War II) out of India. Let me mention something else Gandhi said: "I do not consider Adolf Hitler to be as bad as depicted. He is showing an ability that is amazing, and he seems to be gaining his victories without much bloodshed."

Just because a man helps do a great thing doesn't make him a great human being.

Halloween: Night of the Living Dead Hippies

I don't know if I'm going to put up a Halloween post every day like I did last year, but I wanted to throw this short up. I thought it was funny. The guy with the guitar is my boss's son.

TV Report: The 100 Best (According to Time)

Time Magazine recently put up a list of the 100 greatest TV shows of all time. Since I've nothing to do tonight, here are my own comments. Why? Oh, come on, you know you're dying to hear them.

Actually, probably not, but I need a break from something I'm writing, so what the hell?

This list is in alphabetical order, by the by.

1. 24 -- never seen it.
2. 60 Minutes -- I don't watch it.
3. The Abbott and Costello Show -- never seen it. I don't like Abbott and Costello; they're not very funny. Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein ain't bad, though.
4. ABC's Wide World of Sports -- not a sports guy.
5. Alfred Hitchcock Presents -- as far as anthology shows go, I actually never cared much for this one. I haven't seen it since I was younger, though. Maybe I should check it out again. I'm really a Twilight Zone kid, though.
6. All in the Family -- one of the greatest shows of all time. And then it got bad. Really, this should say something like All in the Family, But Only the First Eight Seasons. Once Mike and Gloria were gone, the show lost its focus.
7. An American Family -- I've never seen it, but I've heard a lot of good things. Isn't this on DVD now? It seems like it would be interesting to go back and watch. Assuming this is the show I'm thinking about--the documentary? It's a better artifact of the past than James at 15, anyway.
8. American Idol -- no. As a cultural thing, it'll be embarrassing one day, but it does make an interesting sociological statement. But as a show, it's a chore to watch. Please don't let me get involved in this next year.
9. Arrested Development --I would call this one of the greatest TV shows ever, but I wonder if something so recent and fresh can reasonably be called that? It needs some distance and perspective, I think. Overlooking the fact that the first half of season three isn't very good (those Charlize Theron episodes are awful), it's still brilliant television. But it's too soon.
10. Battlestar Galactica -- I assume they mean the new one, since the original is pretty terrible. I've not seen the new one, but I think my answer for number 9 is the same here. Too soon to call. Too trendy and commercial a choice.
11. The Beavis and Butt-Head Show -- fuck you for even suggesting that.
12. The Bob Newhart Show -- a true classic.
13. Brideshead Revisited -- I have to say, if this were my own list, I probably wouldn't count miniseries. It doesn't seem consistent somehow. I've never seen this, by the way.
14. Buffalo Bill -- odd choice. Never seen it.
15. Buffy the Vampire Slayer -- oh, fuck off and die. I'm so sick of this goddamn thing coming up as the high water mark of recent TV. I could never watch this show; Joss Whedon was never as clever as he thought, and Sarah Michelle Gellar was unwatchable. Shut up about it already.
16. The Carol Burnett Show -- yeah, it was cute. I used to love it when I was a kid. I couldn't watch it now, just because Harvey Korman and Tim Conway annoy the shit out of me.
17. The CBS Evening News with Walter Kronkite -- why put this on? Don't get me wrong, Kronkite was a cultural touchstone, and every archival piece of footage I've seen him in I can see why people love him, but as a show? As an entertaining or thoughtful TV show?
18. A Charlie Brown Christmas -- I wouldn't put specials on this list, either. Nothing against this classic, but it throws the list off.
19. Cheers -- one of the best shows ever on TV. I love it; I actually still watch it in reruns. And I never thought it suffered from Shelley Long being replaced by Kirstie Alley.
20. The Cosby Show -- it was good for awhile. The early seasons still hold up, but after a while it just would not stop.
21. The Daily Show -- meh. I haven't watched it in years. It's precious now, it's not funny anymore, and it takes itself far too seriously. I wrote a post once about how it was just a dull collection of the same formulae over and over again, and someone got seriously pissed in the comments.
22. Dallas -- never seen it.
23. The Day After -- TV movies, too. That opens up too many doors. I've never seen this.
24. Deadwood -- too soon, I really think it's too soon. Is this show really that groundbreaking? I'm asking seriously, because I've still never actually seen it. Again, though, I think the fact that it's so recent makes this a questionable choice; is it really that great, or is it just because it's fresh in the memory and people are still angry it got cancelled?
25. The Dick Van Dyke Show -- absolutely. One of the best.
26. Dragnet -- I could never take this show seriously.
27. The Ed Sullivan Show -- I guess. It's hard to say at this point, just because I've only seen a little bit of it. It's not like it's in reruns. Hey, where was The Dick Cavett Show? That's the best interview show ever!
28. The Ernie Kovacs Show -- I don't think I've ever seen this guy before. Didn't Jeff Goldblum play him in a movie?
29. Felicity -- are you being serious? Please. Why not add Dawson's Creek and whatever the hell that Jennifer Love Hewitt spin-off of Party of Five was?
30. Freaks and Geeks -- now that I've finally seen the whole thing, I'd say it's absolutely one of the best TV series I've ever seen. But I still don't know that it belongs on a list of the 100 best. Why, I have no idea. There's just something holding me back.
31. The French Chef -- Julia Child was great, but this is a cultural choice and not an aesthetic one. Maybe I'm just biased because I grew up on The Frugal Gourmet.
32. Friends -- I hate this fucking show. And I hate what it made people think was cool; have you ever worked in an office full of Friends fans who thought the show was just like their real life? I have. Those people are pathetic. Why did people keep watching this show for years and years?
33. General Hospital -- cultural choice. Who watches this? They just needed a representative soap opera and chose this one.
34. The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show -- never seen it.
35. Gilmore Girls -- it had its cute moments, but it was fucking irritating more often than it was cute.
36. Gunsmoke -- never seen it.
37. Hill Street Blues -- never seen it, but hope to.
38. Homicide: Life on the Street -- never seen it. Don't care.
39. The Honeymooners -- historically important, but have you ever seen it? It actually is a really great, really funny show.
40. I, Claudius -- another miniseries. I haven't seen it, and I really should.
41. I Love Lucy -- it's a fucking great show up until they move to the country. I wish Entertainment Weekly and TV Guide would stop calling every female comedian on a sitcom that they remotely like the "new Lucille Ball." There's never going to be another one.
42. King of the Hill -- I love it, but I wouldn't put it on this list. It's a pleasant show, but not a great one.
43. The Larry Sanders Show -- love it. Haven't thought about it in years. I don't know that any HBO series is among the 100 best, honestly. It's still going to take some time to find a place.
44. Late Night with David Letterman (NBC) -- it was a great show up to a point. I think it started to get less good in the early nineties; since he moved to CBS, his show is just like everyone else's late night talk show.
45. Leave It to Beaver -- culturally interesting, especially to aging Republicans who think this show represents the reality of the time. Have you ever watched this show? Because it is torture.
46. Lost -- no fucking chance. It's only had three seasons of questionable quality, and it's way too soon to say this is even one of the better shows on right now, frankly. Shenanigans!
47. Married... with Children -- I'm always surprised to find that I can still watch this show and laugh my ass off. No matter how outlandish it got, I don't think it ever really got bad. It was always true to its tastelessness without being gimmicky. I think I'd actually put this on my list.
48. Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman -- I've never seen it, but I know one guy who just loves it.
49. The Mary Tyler Moore Show -- yes. Excellent show.
50. M*A*S*H -- indeed. One of the best. I don't think this one ever got bad, either.
51. The Monkees -- fuck no.
52. Monty Python's Flying Circus -- fuck yes.
53. Moonlighting -- the first season was good, but not much else.
54. MTV 1981-1992 -- what kind of lame choice is that? MTV was good for the first couple of years, but you can't pick a TV channel. Cop out!
55. My So-Called Life -- lame. Just... really, really bad.
56. Mystery Science Theater 3000 -- while it was still on Comedy Central, sure.
57. The Odd Couple -- no.
58. The Office (American) -- one of my favorite shows ever, but it's too soon to call.
59. The Office (British) -- see above.
60. The Oprah Winfrey Show -- since when does talking about sexual abuse to get attention and using all of your power to tell women what to read make a great television show? It's not exactly great stuff; Jerry Springer is at least more honest about its exploitative intentions...
61. Pee Wee's Playhouse -- good stuff, but no.
62. Playhouse 90 -- before my time.
63. The Price Is Right -- I still don't understand this show.
64. Prime Suspect -- I've still never seen it.
65. The Prisoner -- alright, why not? I think it's great television, certainly one of the great science fiction shows (of which there are few).
66. The Real World -- no, that's just bullshit.
67. Rocky and His Friends -- yes, absolutely. Interesting choice, too.
68. Roots -- one of the greatest miniseries ever, but I still wouldn't count it.
69. Roseanne -- meh. Too whiny. Far too whiny.
70. Sanford and Son -- love this show. Even when Redd Foxx isn't on it, I still love it.
71. Saturday Night Live -- the first five years are classic, the rest is sporadic.
72. Second City Television -- it's not unfunny, but it's not as good as I think people remember.
73. See It Now -- before my time.
74. Seinfeld -- to this day, I still actively hate this show.
75. Sesame Street -- have you seen it lately? Ouch. They don't even care anymore. And why wasn't The Muppet Show on this list?
76. Sex and the City -- give me a fucking break.
77. The Shield -- never seen it.
78. The Simpsons -- for the first decade or so; the less good it gets, the harder it is to remember how great it once was.
79. The Singing Detective -- never seen it, but actively want to do so.
80. Six Feet Under -- any time I tried to watch it I could never get into it.
81. Soap -- the first three seasons are wonderfully hilarious; that fourth seasons is brutal. Billy Crystal becoming an old Jewish man? Was he that bored with the character?
82. The Sopranos -- I haven't seen an episode of this show since the first season; it bored me. There's nothing new to say about the Mafia.
83. South Park -- I love this show. I might put this on the list just because it's one of the few shows on the air with something to say. It's not so damn self-involved.
84. SpongeBob SquarePants -- no fucking way.
85. SportsCenter -- seems like a cheap call; not a sports guy.
86. Star Trek -- the first two seasons, sure.
87. St. Elsewhere -- I've only seen the first season, but it's a great show.
88. The Super Bowl (and the ads) -- aw, how precious. Puke.
89. Survivor -- please. If you're not going to take this seriously, why should I?
90. Taxi -- classic.
91. The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson -- completely a classic. There's no one close to his caliber today.
92. The Twilight Zone -- it had its share of clunkers, but it was a great show.
93. Twin Peaks -- never seen it. Seems like a trendy, Buffy the Vampire Slayer choice.
94. The West Wing -- I only saw the 9/11 reaction episode, but I thought it was terrible. I have a feeling it's overrated. Are there any other shows they can put on this list based on number of Emmys won?
95. What's My Line? -- kind of a boring show, wasn't it?
96. WKRP in Cincinatti -- I love this show.
97. The Wire -- I haven't seen it; I do think it falls into everything I've said about shows being too recent to judge.
98. Wiseguy -- never saw it. What an odd choice.
99. The X-Files -- no. The X-Files is shit. It's like most of today's shows; lots of atmosphere, but nothing's going on. Smart-assed and precious without being entertaining.
100. Your Show of Shows -- before my time.

Well, there you go. No Family Ties? Alright, fine. This whole thing was really pointless.
