    "Arrested Development"
    A smart comedy, subtle, without a laugh track, quite original.
    It's on FOX, which sounds contradictory to the smart nature of the show, but that's life.
    They have a quota. They're only allowed one new smart show per season.

Maybe a bit of Turner Classic Movies, some G4/Tech TV, a dab of BBC Americia, maybe a dash of TV Land or SciFi. but I never watch the networks anymore - not even for the news or sports....there's simply nothing worth wasting your time on there.....all the shows are just vulgar re-writes of garbage done long before, more sex, more profanity now then in the past, but with less plot.
    For the most part I'll agree with you Charlie, except.....you might want to give "Lost" a try. It's a different take on 'stranded on a tropical island' with what looks to be an ensemble cast, mystery with possibly some SF thrown in, an overal story arc and interesting characters.

    Best of all, Daniel Dae Kim is on it and Mira Furlan had a guest spot last week with possible recurring role.

    I dunno, that show pretty much jumped the shark when Fonzy, erm...well...jumped the shark...

    The whole "Happy Days" thing jumped the shark with me.....I could never stand it.

    Give me All in the Family - or the Jeffersons, or better still, The Rockford Files for good TV of that era.

    I'm no prude, I ocasionally like sex and violence in movies, when it fits the story. I perfer good storytelling over anything else - which is why I like the B 5 series of TV, movies, and books.

    Frankly they are just damn good. JMS is perhaps in the same leage as Rod Serling at this point...( no, I'm not bootlicking here - it's just an private observation, ).

    Serling's shoes are tough to fill..perhaps impossible...but JMS comes remarkably close as a writer of compelling TV drama.

    And as much as I enjoy the graphic arts, comic books don't have the same impact or audience as a well written play, motion picture, or TV series.

    Whoops ! I got wordy here ! Sorry !

    Why am I here ?

    To escape bordom.

    What do I want ?

    Less bordom.


    ......ahem, why does anyone use these darned public " scribble boards " anyway but to escape bordom ? I mean, were talking about a TV show here.....a good TV show - but as the song goes...."It's just a TV show .." ( The B 5's....remember ?....nevermind.....)

    What do I really want ? happy days.....perferably more happier days than unhappy ones....who dosn't egh ?


    Seize the day children....make the most out of it that you can....they are finite in number you know.....make them work for your benifit and enjoy them as much as possible.

    Who am I? The SpooRancher.

    What do I want? Lots of money, and a job where I get more and don't have to work hard to get it. Oh, and MORE B5....LOTS MORE B5!!!

    Why am I here? Well, I like to get news and rumors about B5. I also think that I may find some friend type people. It's worth a try!

    An excellent point. That part of me which is here would very much miss that part of the rest of you that is also here.

    Other than that, I have no real purpose in coming here. The rest of the B5 saga will, or won't, play out acording to the great maker's designs, no matter what we do here. I am as much interested in where we have been as where we are going, and that interest is fulfilled here better than anywhere else.

    What do you want?

    For people around the world to accept each other for who they are and what they are.


    Why are you here?

    I have been asking myself that question for 62 years now and still don't have an answer. When I get one and it will come to me, I will let you know. In the mean time "I am here"

    The ultimate question to life, the universe and everything.

    The answer to which is "42."
    And I suppose once you have the question, you'd want the answer, since it would have changed. Then of course, you'd need the new question once you had the new answer...
