I watched a bunch of Friends Thanksgiving episodes over the holiday, and it's pretty amazing how well they stand the test of time. "The One With Chandler In A Box" is probably my favorite of them all. I know you all must be wondering what to get me for Christmas, so I've made it easy for you, just click on the "be my generous friend" link in my sidebar, and click on any of the products, one of which is The Friends Complete DVD Collection. Go through the normal payment instructions and you'll be able to send to my address at the end. You're welcome.
I think the closest we have, or have had, to Friends is How I Met Your Mother. And you all really should be watching. This past week's episode was probably their best episode, and excluding South Park, the funniest episode of anything I've seen this season. If you missed it, definitely watch it on CBS' Innertube.
Haven't had a chance to catch up on a lot of the other shows. I tried watching a Veronica Mars episode from a few weeks back, but I got bored and stopped. Seriously, why must it feel so contrived this year? Is it just me??
The "Stanley's Cup" episode of South Park was pretty decent. My favorite line was when the Doctor says, "Well he isn't worse, but he isn't getting better. It's almost as if his cancer were tied." You can watch the episode here. But before you do that, you need to watch "Hell On Earth" here, and "Make Love, Not Warcraft" here. The two best episodes this season. For you dorks like me, here's an interesting article on how they made that Warcraft episode.
Meanwhile, Family Guy's been pretty off this year.
Grey's has been really solid the last two weeks. Nothing to break out the ice cream and tissues for, but still strong nonetheless. I'm really glad they finally got Christina and Burke's secret out in the open, they were starting to get annoying. And even though it's getting pretty intense, I find myself caring more about the Alex/Addison/Izzy storyline than anything else. Give me more Izzy, Shonda. Please.
