Okay I am going to try and keep this as short as humanly possible… (In otherwords grab a drink and sit down cuz you and me both are going to be here awhile LOL).

1st- LOVE all the ‘guest stars’ and I am enjoying having a new episode to listen to every week :).

2nd- When talking about why the FCC approval of Comcast/NBC you guys were kinda asking why were people getting up in arms over the whole thing. Well I am one of those people.

I feel like the Comcast/NBC merger is a complete monoplistic creation that can only spell bad things for the industry. There are numerous things that comcast has done along the way that just seem like major red flags, and while I am sure that I could go on and talk about them here, the deal is done and there isn’t much more to be said. I just feel that giving this much power to one single company that is the ONLY option for many people to get cable/ interent is a very very bad thing, but we will have to wait and see what happens.

I am LOVING Primeval and I cannot wait for the next season, and I am not ready to say good bye to Greek 🙁 its soooo good and to see that Chuck Pratt is getting a new series (The Lying Game) but these brilliant writers are getting shafted just sucks.

Anyways thank you guys for all your hard work! Keep it up! and like always I am glad your back for the moment Rea!

Till next time!

WELCOME BACK RAE!

So far I haven’t liked “Mr. Sunshine” or “Mad Love”–they just hasn’t been funny. However, I have continued to watch them (ducking from Amrie) to see if they get better because they have some actors I like.

I can’t believe there is only 1 more episode of Greek! How are they possibly going to wrap things up! I really hope they do a jump forward and let us see what the future holds for these characters. It would be nice to see Rusty and Ashleigh together.

Nikita has been really good–I think I was really sold on it after watching their last episode before their Christmas break.

While I really enjoyed the Myles episode, I can see why that Facebooker might not have–the episode had a very different feeling. (This is may sound bad, but it’s not meant that way)–it was a much more in-depth, intellectual conversation rather than your usual lighter, more casual discussions. It had more of an academic feeling to it.

I am such a bad listener! I totally just noticed this episode! And there is already another one posted for me to listen to tomorrow! Yeah!
I gave up on Mr Sunshine half way through the 2nd episode. Mainly because I too live by the rule – if you hate it why watch? So it didn’t make me laugh and I stopped. However, i reserve the right to get back to it at some point because I love Chandler Bing.
I am love love loving Castle! Nathan has had some brilliant moments in the last few episodes and they can been quiet almost missable moments. I am so glad he is on a show that is more than 12 episodes!
Supernatural – I don’t LOVE it like I used to but I am enjoying it. I truly believe this is a great show to watch on DVD because the choppiness that the week to week episodes seem to have over a season make way more sense when you watch a tone of episodes in a row. But that’s just me. The TV on DVD lover.
Amazing Race is amazing! I love that this season seems to be way harder than it was before – as it should! If you have been through it once, they need to make it harder for you the next time. I LOVE when they have to keep racing! The look on the faces of ever exhausted team is great!
Rae, glad you came back for an episode. I know you guys are having a great time at Paley!
