colossal waste of time

Recommended Posts

i just wasted 30 minutes watching 'sex and the city.'

i could have better invested that time procuring pornography, or taking a terrific shit, eating a burrito....ANYTHING else!

i really cant undertsand how ipossibly trite, shallow, and completely humorless this show is! why in the friendly ###### do people watch this?

really. how interesting are 4 whiny, over-dramtic, yuppie women in their 30's....:puke::puke::puke:

(one more for good measure)

What were you expecting?

The first time I ever saw a commercial for the show I knew it was crap , then I actually watched a full episode and found out that it really was crap .... But I was younger then and that was the best free TV nudity available at the time. :puke:

Speaking of American Cable shows, does anybody watch Curb Your Enthousiasm, I have heard good things and the co-creator of Seinfeld (Larry David) is the star. I haven't seen the show myself, but i am debating on getting Showcase so i can see re-runs.

does anyone remember the show "sports night?"

it ran from 1998-2000.

it was penned by the creator of "the west wing," aaron sorkin.

all of its reviews were outstanding but ABC pulled the plug on it w/ out reason.

i cant stand 99.9 % of whats on TV but this show was one of the best IMO....

they have the DVD set for sale and reruns play on comedy central.

Are you talking about this particular show?

I have Showcase and have happened upon the show a few times... it's ok.

I too had heard good things about it, that's the only reason I watched a little of it.

Problem is I'm just not used to going up to channel 40 when I'm channel surfing... so I regularly miss shows that play on Showcase.

Curb... is funny, but it has it's own style.

It's deadpan humor to the extreme, I don't remember hearing a laughing sound track... even Seinfeld had that.

It's mostly funny observations about every day life kinda things... in that way exactly like the Seinfeld character.

But no Kramer, no George... and so nowhere near as good as Seinfeld was IMO.

If you get Showcase the show I'd recommend is Oz, a also highly acclaimed drama from HBO.

Very good although Showcase is presently running the last season of the show, I'm pretty sure it's been cancelled. Too bad cuz it was really good, why is it that the bad shows stick and the good ones get cancelled?

Ah well.

hmm i was hoping it would be more like Seinfeld. Oh well.

Argh i need a good new comedy to come along, ever since Seinfeld there just hasn't been anything spectacular. Simpsons is good, but i need something else.

Well, for my first post on this board, I would like to say that "Sex And The City" is popular with a lot of women and geared toward them, which means that I will not spend even one second watching it!

I figured something was up when I saw the ads on TV when the show first began and took notice of the newspaper articles about it in subsequent years. Believe me, I won't miss this show once it goes off the air at the end of this season.
