i watched the first season of Arrested Development in 2 sittings, and it's a really great show.  i might like it more than LOST, if you can imagine, but i cheated and watched the whole thing without chad so now i have to wait for him to catch up before i can see season 2.

watched the Coupling marathon on BBC for a while, and found that i still can't watch it as they intended because all i can think about is how Jane's a porn star.  do people really think no one will notice?  unless she has a very identical twin that IMDB doesn't know about...

the power went out at my place last night, and it gave me an hour to think about how much the sound of the blood in my ears irritates me and how i need to get a battery-operated back-up life.  or a roommate/hired person to entertain me.

Now you know why I was so pissed when I realized I missed the season finale (and final episodes evar!) on Friday night. Good job advertising, I never heard about it until late Friday night.
Anyway, don't have any idea what it is you speak of about Coupling. (Then again I was never a big fan of porn.) Like that show too though. The US version sucked, ever see it? They definitely did a better job in re-working The Office for american audiences (depending on the episode I go back and forth as to which I like the best).

i didn't see the finale, but i'm sure it will be out on DVD soon enough :)

most of my porn education comes from living with 2 guys for 6 years and now it's filed under Things I Can't Unlearn (with the fact that i can spot Jenna Jameson's ass tattoo from 20 paces, etc.). i did see the american version of Coupling and it wasn't as good, though i don't think i've liked any of the americanized shows as much as the BBC versions.

part of the reason I wasn't as upset about this (compared to prince and steve m. on SNL) was I figured it would be on DVD soon enough.
So you are't into the NBC version of The Office?

i still have that SNL if you want to watch it. can't get it off the DVR until i get enough cables to hook up the VCR, but you're more than welcome to come over and watch.

The Office is like coke and diet coke to me. each is ok on their own, but i'd like one more if i'd never known the other.

Arrested Development is an awesome show, possibly the funniest I've seen in a long time (save maybe The Office) but comparing it to Lost is apples and oranges!

And to hear this from you- who indirectly got Steve and I both addicted to Lost at such a time that we couldn't just pick it up where it left off, but had to by the first season on DVD and now can't watch the second season until it comes out on DVD, and so on...

yeah, LOST is addictive... you can get the second season on iTunes, but there are only a couple to go now so the DVD should be available by summer.

i only compared the two in "amount of like" as opposed to "kind of like" to illustrate my point of how much i like it. 'cause everyone knows how much i like LOST.

hope you guys are doing well! i heard you might be coming to visit soon! :)
