    *sigh*

    It's been almost 13 years since The Middleman was born and died.

    Yet somehow, the pain of the loss is just as fresh today as it was then...

    It's okay since she's not real but I enjoyed seeing the mayor's assistant suffer. The poor girl couldn't sleep unless the assistant mayor bored her, and that was the perfect way to get some sleep.

    I was impressed the mayor solved a mystery. He doesn't seem all that smart.

    I only watched the pilot so far, but thought it was funny. I realized I think I've liked all of Danson's shows (to differing degrees).

    I also JUST realized who the assistant guy is -- he was the 'middle aged' guy in that show who had kid/middle age/old (played by John Laroquette). I kept meaning to look him up on imdb but just remembered.

    Does this belong in the Regina King SNL thread?

    Especially as his real fame is from SNL!

    ("Me, Myself and I" -- I just looked it up.. Argh, needs an Oxford comma.)

    hah you're right but for some reason until you mentioned it, him being on SNL somehow went totally out of my memory.

    Bobby Moynihan's character's full name is Jayden Kwapis, which I assume was inspired by director Ken Kwapis (although he doesn't have any Tina Fey/Robert Carlock shows on his resume -- maybe the character name is an attempt to get him to work for them!).

    I thought last night's episode was the best of the bunch so far, but Jayden is still annoying. They need to tone him down.

    I feel pretty much the same. "Becker" was the exception and I never had any reason to watch "CSI".
    I liked that show. It shouldn't have been cancelled so quickly.

    I liked Moynihan on SNL but not here.

    I really liked the scenes with The Mayor and the daughter. And Nicole. She's been on a lot of shows I've watched and I really liked her. But the relationship won't last, which is a shame.

    The trivia competition? I was so happy to see the words "Season finale" referring to the next episode. Not because of The Mayor and the daughter, certainly. But I don't care to ever see the rest of them.

    Nobody ever forced you to watch, yet you still are. Outside of that one character, I think we are starting to get a good read on all the other characters. Sometimes it takes time, and that's where we are with this show.

    I have to get rid of the episodes because the Roamio is full. Anything I think I won't like goes to the Bolt because I might change my mind, except that's full too.

    I'll venture a WAG that 99.9% of us don't decide what to watch based on how full our DVRs are.

    I delete things based upon how full my Dvr is. Especially since there are so many ways to go back and watch stuff.

    And just like that, the season ends with this week's ninth episode. Gotta assume it gets renewed.

    You mean you DIDN'T like Becker? that's funny, since I think it was his longest running post-Cheers.

    oh and I quit CSI long before he got on (my usual "I know it's a popular show, it'll be on DVD or streaming some day"). Though of course the usual music problem fears come to mind with CSI.. (and another tangent, CSI:Cyber isn't avail and I actually had the eps on my TiVo when I lost a bunch of stuff ~1.5 years ago.. I actually had started watching my recordings again at some point then lost a bunch).

    I sometimes do. I'll watch the ~6 gigabyte show instead of the ~2 gigabyte show.

    It's weird in that I watch quite a bit of TV and I don't think my DVR has been below 50% in ages, maybe since my first DirecTV Tivo. I have the standard 1TB HD in my HR54, so it's not like I have a giant external HD attached. The only time the DVR fills up even down below 75% is when I go away and stuff piles up (or in October when I'm watching a lot of post season baseball). But I also don't save a lot of shows. After I watch I delete. I have a couple of old games and a couple of music concerts saved, and I think the last episodes of The Americans and The Big Bang Theory on there (and haven't gone back to watch them since they aired). But I also don't have any auto records set based on "likes". Just what I have set up on my Season Passes.
