    I stoped watching Heroes a long time ago, especially once i found out it had ripped of most ideas from the Hunter-Seeker comic book.
    Mostly i just watch Ghost in the Shell, re-see Titus, and watch chronicles of sarah conner.

    Ahh Lost... When the first season aired, I was sure it was the best television I've ever seen. Season two was pretty cool aswell, but season three was lame as shit, and season four was pointless.

    Here's a summary of what season four was:

    "We've got to get to that boat!"
    "Let's not go to the boat!"
    "Let's go to the boat!"
    "Let's go back to the island!"
    "Back to the island!"
    "Where's Sayid?"
    "He's on the boat!"
    "Where's the boat?"
    "It's on the island!"
    "Desmond's wierd!"
    "Back to the boat!"


    Fingers crossed for five.

    No Australian is allergic to Vegemite. We become addicted in utero.

    Oh, and I watch House religiously (to stay on topic).

    Will probably give the next season of "24" a few episodes to see if it's worth the wait.

    I agree. Being allergic to Vegemite would be like being allergic to Beer. This is because Vegemite is made from the dregs of the beer vat. To be allergic to be beer is surely un-Australian. :P

    Pretty much anything. These are some shows that come to mind:

    The Daily Show/Colbert Report
    Wilfred
    The McLaughlin Group
    American Dad
    Futurama

    New favourite TV show:

    Image

    Image

    "Boss"

    Kelsey Grammer plays fictional Chicago mayor Tom Kane. It's all about the corruption that goes on and he's a real bastard in it. I won't give too much away. The first season (8 episodes) just finished, and I love it to death. Beautifully shot, well-written, plus that blonde third from the top of that image gets quite nude consistently throughout. The actress also happens to be from the city I live in.

    Think Sopranos meets The West Wing.

    Yeah, I caught the first episode (it was free on comcast on-demand for a while) and it looked great, but I'm too cheap to get HBO or Starz or whatever premium channel it's on.

    Was it picked up for a second season?

    Boardwalk Empire: best series I've seen since The Wire.
    Boss is quite good. I really enjoyed the season finale's end credits music. (Beethoven's Moonlight sonata, but with modern instruments and kinda distorted)

    Black Mirror.

    Absolutely brilliant so far. Three (two shown so far) satires about the internet/media/etc. The first ep is great, the second is Brave New World for people with Xbox Live :P

    Funny, brilliantly observed, beautifully made and acted - highly recommended.

    I just found this, can't remember if it's been here before.
    Is it me or does Brian all but spill the beans at 1:47?

    Everything BH ever wrote was with a collaborator, save for his Truly Tasteless Insurance Jokes book, and even that one he had to run by daddy, so he could be referring to anyone.

    He aid that was with an author he never published with.

    Does he say "a writer that I've never published with" or "a writer that I'd never published with"?

    The second could be consistent with the writer being KJA. ;)
