    I say the same thing all the time. Every time I see him in a serious role, all I think of is the scene with him on the toilet in Dumb and Dumber.

    No, I'm mad that you're on like a neverending telethon of third-rate jugglers pie plate twirlers and off-key child singers
    broadcast from the Soviet Union and I can't drop you from my channel lineup.

    Yeah, the "new" you is such an improvement...

    You realize you are slowly slipping into dementia, right?

    (I was in the Hampur first, go back to the Politics Form and rant about the darkies.)

    From your post about the song trhat was #1 on your birthday, or carbon dating, you're the oldster here, the one with the weak osteoperotic bones your corpulent flesh couldn't cushion. Or was that a penile implant?

    However, I was "here" (as dubious an achievement that may be),
    long before you.

    Ranting about darkies, mmkay. Your words not mine. Why don't you go back to the Politics Forum and rant about the Catholic Church.

    Isn't it time for your Lou Grant rerun?

    It was pre-empted by news of the Youkilis trade followed by a rerun of the Celtics loss to the Heat.

    I think that you just need a hug.

    Was going to watch the 2d episode but decided to rewatch the first, since I was exhausted the first time and lost track. For some reason it was infinitely better the second time around (while awake). A great big thumbs up for Jeff Daniels in this role. Will watch the second episode later this week.

    Just finished both last night...

    Great show.

    To my surprise there was even more dialogue in the second show than the first.

    But I agree with Dcat. When I watched it during the day it was easier to follow. Even though 10pm on a Sunday is not terribly late, it is difficult to process all that dialogue while lying in bed.

    Anyone catch tonight's episode? It turns out Will's dating a member of the Jets' Flight Crew, Danielle. Such a random aspect of the show, and I love it.

    Great episode, much better and well-written than last week's. Knew it'd be good with Mottola behind the lens.

    Yeah, I liked that Flightcrew reference. Nice that they said "Flightcrew" instead of her just being a "Cheerleader"

    Ironing how the show is supposed to be about a show that delivers the facts and not the sensationalism, yet all they do is bash conservatives. At least Sorkin hid the agenda for two episodes. All downhill from here.

    But anytime the Jets get mentioned, that is a plus.

    He didn't bash conservatism to be fair... At least not completely...

    You'll have a valid point if at no time does he go after liberal ideology in the 1st season...
