    This Sunday Little Britain USA premieres. If you've ever seen the British version of this show, you know it is super funny!

    In a nutshell 2 comedians play like 100 characters in short skits. Half the time you can't tell it's the same 2 guys they are made up so well. They range from a Weight Watchers teacher that belittles fat people, a flaming gay man, and a guy that pretends he's handicapped but isn't.

    I love The Life and Times of Tim. The 2nd funniest animated show on tv (obviously South Park is #1).

    Little Britain USA is fairly amusing.

    And True Blood has grown on me a little.

    I just finished watching the series on DVD. I can't say that I thoroughly enjoyed it, but I appreciated that it was trying to do something different.

    IMO, the show was too oblique to succeed. People seem to prefer overt explanations to symbolism, and JFC was laden (or maybe woy would say leaden ) with symbolism. I also think that people who dig symbolism the most would have been turned off by the rough language.

    One advantage to watching on DVD that HBO viewers probably didn't have was a DVD extra that showed David Milch's explanation of John's monologue at the end of episode 6, as well as his commentary audio tracks on a couple of episodes. The explanation helped explain what the monologue was setting the table for, probably better than the ensuing episodes explained it. Although Milch stubbornly refused to address whether John was an extraterrestrial or a deity. Not surprisingly, he was also quite annoyed that the series was cancelled.

    I'll tell you a hilarious show: Summer Heights High.

    Funny, funny stuff. I can see why it won so many awards in Australia where it was originally produced. Kudos to HBO for bringing it to the American audience.

    More Cathouse episodes. That show cracks me up. A lot of the girls are busted, but Dennis Hof makes me LMAO.

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
