Top Five TV Shows of the Aughts

5) How I Met Your Mother

First off, Willow’s in it! She’s dreamy. Secondly, Doogie’s hilarious. Finally, it’s damn funny.


4) The Mighty Boosh

This BBC3 comedy focuses on Howard Moon (an incompetent, small-eyed jazz fan), Vince Noir (a fashion conscious simpleton), Naboo (a shaman), Bollo (a gorilla) and Bob Fossill (the manager of the zoo the main characters work in during the first series).

Each series has a different theme, during the first, the cast work in a zoo, the second, they’re roommates, the third, they work in Naboo’s shop. There’s not much sense of continuity to the series, but it’s fuckin’ funny.


3) 30 Rock

I love this show. This might just be my favourite sitcom, ever. There’s a nice mix of insanity and clever writing.


2) Battlestar Galactica

The reimagining of this cheesy 1970s sci-fi show was an unparalleled success. Ron Moore (formerly of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) created a universe, which borrowed only minor tidbits from the original series. Instead he created a new universe which paralleled our own and asked important questions of war, love, religion and family.


1) Clone High

I love this show with a passion. I can sit down, put the DVD in my computer, and realize five hours later that I’ve watched the entire series… again! It seems that I keep on coming back to this TV show, and it never gets boring.

My Fair Clavin Part II

I think I should revisit this post. I think the issue is the shoulder pads.

Being There

Four years ago, I, along with a handful of other amazing people started an online web magazine called Being There. We’ve been on a bit of a hiatus. It’s back!

Check it out!

Twizzle

I posted this on YouTube a while ago, and I constantly get emails saying someone’s commented on the video. Thought I’d share.

My Fair Clavin (6×11)

Been watching Cheers lately, I grew up on this show, and it’s always been awesome. Watching it as an adult you see very different things, like when Woody says a line that was very obviously written for Coach, or just how much of an asshole Sam is.

In this episode, Cliff gets a girlfriend… yes, that Cliff. He’s ashamed of his girlfriend, and won’t take her to Cheers, until after he puts her through a makeover. Am I the only insane one who thinks she’s much better looking pre-makeover?

Doctor’s adventures in time and space

The Waters of Mars

Screen shot 2009-11-16 at 6.31.41 PMI really don’t know what to make of this episode. At times it was silly, but not necessarily in a good way, at times it was dark, but kind of hokey. I don’t really find that the Doctor’s behaviour is really believable. David Tennant’s Doctor is not the Doctor to presume such might over lower-beings (ie. Humans), I could see Christopher Eccelston’s Doctor in that stance, but not Tennant’s.

Also, what’s with the burning fire on the surface of Mars? Yes, Mars has atmosphere, but I doubt it’s thick enough to support a burning flame.

Though, I did really enjoy the episode.

Seth & Alex’s Almost Live Comedy Show

Oh my god! I haven’t seen anything this painful and hard to watch in a long time.

SGU – Earth

Aboard the Destiny

Aboard the Destiny

Earth has a plan for the Destiny’s crew to finally get home… after only seven episodes. I have a feeling it won’t work. Focusing on Chloe and Eli mostly, it also throws more questions as to where Dr. Rush’s loyalties lie. The episode does seem to be a middle episode where not much of the story arch is moving along, but a lot of character development continues.

I just worry that Dr. Rush is going to turn into a moustache twirling villain, if they don’t let us see more of his motivations. He’s no Baltar.
