    Congrats on making Dan quit the Internet. I enjoyed his posts and reaction but the pwning was complete.

    I'm watching Lilyhammer but the fucking thing is subtitled which makes it hard to surf and listen. I need to learn the Norge. It's about a mobster being relocated after he to Norway after he ratted on a boss. The mobster is played by the bald guy from the E street band that pretends he has hair. He's annoying and looks like a frog. and most of the time he needs subtitles too.

    It's like red cotton candy. You know cotton candy should come in many more colors than what is traditionally offered?

    Downton Abbey is a British fictionalized-historical series. I heard a bunch of hoopla about it and checked it out. It follows the lives of one family in nobility and their servants. It sound horrible based on the description but it is good. I think season 1 is on Netflix but I could be wrong.

    It's a drama but it is not boring. You have to acclimate a little to their British accents but after you do that, it's all good.

    downtown abbey is a good show. it is not boring and pretty fast paced. years go by within a few episodes. the description sounds terrible but it is really entertaining.

    The first episode was interesting ending with the scheming second footman Thomas' dark side being revealed as the visiting Duke rejects his further advances saying, "One suck does not a Summer make" and tosses the incriminating love letters that he recovered from his quarters into the fireplace. :munch:

    Turns into a poorly written soap opera after that.
