I was randomly thinking about this show recently; I watched it when I could, but I was almost as amused by the person who regularly wrote into the Washington Post’s TV chat to ask for updates on whether or not it had been renewed.

I wonder how that person’s doing now. I hope they find this post about their favorite Read more

My Boys was great. I once dragged friends (who did not watch the show) to some shitty martini bar in River North because the b-list guys were there for a promotional event for it. According to FaceBook this is August 2008.

This show was so refreshing and funny. Never talked down to you, and as someone who has lived in and around Chicago her whole life, the references were spot on. Jim Gaffigan is a National Treasure (tm) and I’ll cut anyone who says otherwise.

They always had ridiculously good guest stars and cameos. In my mind, I hoped it was because everyone was just so goddamn nice to work with.

Sometimes I feel like my sister and I were the only ones who watched My Boys. It’s probably my favorite sitcom since the turn of the millennium.

I liked My Boys a lot, but there’s only two lines of dialogue that have stuck with me over the years: Read more

Wow, a lot of the male fashion here is... rough. 2006 was SO LONG AGO.

I really, really enjoyed My Boys, and agreed that it handled the relationship stuff in a very different way than most other sitcoms. Read more

I really liked “My Boys” and it really suffered from the airtime shuffling shenanigans. The cast was excellent and the comedy writing was sharp. I’m sure there are plenty of things that could have been done to make it more mainstream but it would have lost what I felt made it special. The Sex and The City comparisons Read more

Karl Malden sorted this shit out over 30 years ago.  Guilty!

Yeah it’s always seemed pretty obvious to me that he committed these crimes, and was copying the MO of the Manson family using details that were readily available in the papers.  I’m baffled as to why Morris is choosing to go to bat for this guy.

As someone from New Zealand I can say that our original Filthy Rich was also extremely goddamn awful. Notoriously panned more than pretty much any television show to ever be made here so it’s definitely not just a problem with the adaptation; the source material also sucks. Honestly I’m still confused as to why anyone Read more

Glad you mentioned Teenage Bounty Hunters. The premise makes it sound silly (and it is a little silly) but it’s also a lot of fun with really well-drawn characters and excellent dialogue. We were thrilled with how much we enjoyed it and how sad we were when the season was over.

It works a bit, because it could mean that Dumbledore for the first time senses things getting fully out of hand and letting his normal control slip a bit.  Not sure it was the correct move, but I could understand it.

I quite like how he toes the line between ‘public schoolboy you love to hate’ and ‘genuinely nice dude’, especially in this movie.
