I can watch a film I love whenever I want, but it's not everyday that the Twins are in the Series.
very very true. For any team I mean, that wasn't a shot at the Twins. I mean these games are live too, and like you said, you can watch a film pretty much whenever.
Here's to a Reds v Twins Fall Classic in 2010.

If I want to start watching Battlestar Gallactica, do I start with episode 1.1, or is there a movie that comes first?

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

My favorite tv theme song of all time is Friday Night Lights.


Okay, a question:

What would you choose to watch in most situations: a championship game of your favorite professional sport or a film that you love?

Considering the fact that my favorite teams are rarely in a championship game these days, I'd go with the film more often than not.  Unless it's a particularly compelling match-up.

If it's rewatching for both, then the film.  If it's watching the first time for both, then the game.  If I've seen one before, then the one I haven't seen yet.

The second season of Picket Fences better be better than the first, or its Emmy win over the first season of NYPD Blue will be ever more of a traveshamockery than it looks on paper.  Can Don Cheadle really make that much of a difference?

By the way, the first season of Picket Fences also won the Emmy for Best Dramatic Series, beating out Homefront, I'll Fly Away, Law & Order, and Northern Exposure.  Wtf are Homefront and I'll Fly Away?

No clue, but traveshamockery is my favorite new word. Thanks!

I'll Fly Away
Critically acclaimed but short-lived show set during the Civil Rights Movement. Created by the guys who made Northern Exposure, but this one isn't zany. I saw about 5 minutes of it once, it didn't grab me. Sam Waterston stars as a southern lawyer, I've always assumed he was playing an Atticus Finch type.

Homefront
Critically acclaimed but short-lived show set during the Second World War. I've never seen it and had only heard of it from reading Kyle Chandler's IMDB page a couple months ago.

I would watch a zany show about the Civil Rights Movement.  Too bad UPN isn't around anymore.
