Oh, right... I forgot about the two versions. Definitely the British one.

I haven't seen any of the American version, but I've heard nothing good.

Let me know what you think.

I enjoyed DS9 a lot. It got into political stories that the ship-based shows didn't really get into much. Same reason I liked Babylon 5.

I watched all those as a kid, but MASH is the only one that I still love today. Poignant, brilliantly witty, and charming a way few shows have ever been able to match.

Watched the first episode. Good enough that I'm watching the second.

I think I like it.

Word.


And, as far as HFCS goes - I think that one thing that people forget about is that it's not just in soda and fast food. They're jamming it into everything they can find. Places that it really doesn't belong - where sugar shouldn't be added at all (like bread).

That was another one we started when the baby was still not really able to 'watch' TV and was busy bouncing around in various exer-saucers and the like. We never did get to the second season - some day soon I hope because I really enjoyed the character development and the plot line.

Anyone get to watch the season premiere of Game of Thrones last night?

Also, Sons of Anarchy is pretty good. TDGuy and I have been watching it on Netflix
