PBS is Beating out american Idol for my attention span.
« on: February 22, 2006, 08:28:37 pm »
PBS is starting to show some really great shows all of the sudden. They're showing The Twilight Zone, They're Showing the Brittish version of the office, and now apparently they've started to show a Best of Monty Python Series type thing. Best Of Eric Idle totally beat out American Idol for my attention about an hour or 2 ago. :D And they all have legitimate excuses apparently. Twilight Zone is In a collection of "American Masters". And I they're doing a whole programming thing based around Brittish humor also, so that plus the added bonus of no commercial breaks, is actually making PBS into a legitimite choice for prime time programming. Errie.

Hm.
On another note, You know, Everyone assumed the Vikings like Spam, but that isn't really proven. True they seem to enjoy singing about it, but you never actually see them eating it, just singing about it...
*Continues on Random Tangent. Tangent sounds like Tangerine. Tangerines are an intresting Fruit...
**Continues rambling on in action Star.
(I'm in that kind of mood. ;))


What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

No commercials....just week-long fund drives every 2 weeks.

Heh heh. In England we get four channels of public funded broadcasting and we dont have to watch pledge drives because the BBC extorts TV licsences from everyone. Its compulsory. (Help help. The BBC have taken me, send help)
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Here, all of the good stuff on PBS is negated by "Keeping up Appearances."
"Fine. Don't believe me. I'm not lying. all your laziness which you mistake for something funney is driving me insane, quit fooling around!  dude this is just wrong, very wrong. reality does not consist of constrained language. go lock this thread malt. I love the payment."4MOD

Nova rules!!!

Yeah, and I listen to NPR. I have an NPR mug from supporting KVOD, my local NPR/classical station.

Wow, this makes me realize how long it's been since I was an active user here.
