I will if you remind me. I have a lot on my mind, ya know. OK?
That’s kind of a given, though, isn’t it? Barely considering their abbreviated seasons, don’t most British series have shorter shelf lives?
P.S. FX, while I understand the 13 episode season keeps story-lines tighter (and family man Nick Searcy happy), it’s sometimes not enough.
P.P.S. If Sons of Anarchy can do 90 minute episodes, so can Justified. Pretty and please.
Well, in this particular show’s case, the (mercifully) shorter run was justified (SWIDT), since I was unable to suspend my disbelief that Michael and Dwight would still be employed past the third season, let alone that for me the show ground to a halt every time Michael was on screen from that point forward. The show not only jumped the shark, but it left orbit with the “fire drill” episode in the fifth season, when they kept their jobs after faking a fire drill and an employee suffered a heart attack as a direct result! The UK version at least had the decency to portray some sort of comeuppance for David (Michael).
I only watch The Office out of habit these days. This season’s been more miss than hit, like probably the past 3-4, but when they hit, still pretty damn funny.
What’s cooler than being cool? goozer cool!!!
I stopped watching The Office several years ago.
I remember it fondly, but actually stopped being a regular view soon after they were taken over by Sabre.

Most, but not all. Dr. Who has been around since the ’60s, and Top Gear has been around since the ’70s.
Just a heads-up, “Windfall” the anti-wind power documentary, is out on Netflix Streaming and DVD. I commented about this movie a while back when it was in theaters; it made ultra-greenie Roger Ebert change his mind on the subject.
I’m really glad I’m not first today. The pressure was really getting to me.
I helped with that yesterday and as usual the men of 3D get no credit.
Well, I can report that California is still here and that stimulus checks have kept it from falling into the ocean. How will it survive if Uncle Sugar starts tightening his belt? The faults are waiting, building pressure, we could make the hurricane sandy relief bill look puny real easy. We’re just one crappy SciFi channel movie away from mega-quake to giga-stimulus. Governor Brown prays daily.
What ate you doing in SoCal?
Is that pesky skin eating bacteria back?? 😉
Visiting Family, I is….. and Feb is a darn fine time to leave Virginia for a week.
Sorry LGH…I thought you might be out there making a goat delivery to the California State House! 😀
You thought OC Guy was kidding?
” …as usual the men of 3D get no credit.” Wrong. I’ll be happy to give you no credit.
We’re not worried about earthquakes! We’ve all Some of us have learned where the gas shut-off valve is and not to bring the barbecue inside to cook; and we have some bottled water stored somewhere. What? Us worry?
BW merely points out the truth here.Chicago Rules!
La Tinka called it yesterday. And now that Woodward has shown his grit, Lanny Davis, Mr. Clinton Apologist, found his balls voice and has come forward, proclaiming that the WH did it to him, too. What a weenie.
The reason it’s been 600 years since the last Pope retired is they didn’t have the Wisconsin Teacher’s Union negotiate their pension!
Pass the biscuits,Pappy!
Maxine Waters says sequestration could destroy “over 170 million jobs”. For anyone keeping count at home, total civilian workforce is 155.7 million people. With math skills like that, no wonder they can’t put together a budget.
Congresswoman Waters is a national treasure!
Maxine Waters…the face that launched a thousand shits.
A bit of name dropping… I got to have lunch with Ralph Winter http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0003515/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1 producer of many of the X-Men movies, Star Trek 3-6; House, Lost, etc. Great guy — strong Christian — teaches a class at a seminary in Southern California and is a Nazarene (lapsed Presbyterian of all things)….
He’s producing a biopic of Ronald Reagan starring Jon Voigt which is not set for release yet. And also mentioned working on a biopic of Emperor Constantine, with Mike Piazza as a major investor of all people. He said Piazza was a “devout Catholic”. Never met the guy so who knows? The Gladiator screenwriter write this screenplay as well.
Anyway… Hollywood isn’t completely filled with douchebags.
Good for you!
Yeah, okay, I know it’s a sin, but gosh-darnit … I’m jealous!!
Next time you do lunch, tell them my novels are available for option. 😉
Mine too! (If they express interest and have a check book I may even write one!)
When Outlaw bragged about told us that he had lunch with Mr. Searcy (Outlaw called him “Nick,” but I’m too respectful of my elders star struck to call him by his first name), he said “Nick” picked up the tab. So, unless Mr. Winter (I call him “Mr. Winter,” you-know-why) picked up the tab, Outlaw wins … if it’s a competition … which I don’t assume it to be … even though it usually is with guys … but maybe it’s not … I don’t know … how was the lunch?
He picked up the tab the THIRD time I ate with him.
Floyd, did you relate to him how you worked on a big time documentary film as well?
Don’t even think of letting your AT&T star audition for the role of Ron, Jr.!
Achtung! Floyd there are a few, however. Joan Rivers on how to win friends and influence people:
