To House.

Now for the rant:
Hulu.com only carries the last 5 episodes! ;-;

Ninja edit: The pilot episode of Parks and Recreation was decent, the second episode not so much. It seems like they are trying to force laughs, most of the jokes aren't even funny unfortunately.

I got you addicted to House? How?

I've been trying to push Dollhouse, but not House, M.D. that I recall.

Well I've already blamed Striker for my inability to correctly enunciate certain words. Following that pattern, knowing how much you love to watch TV programs, you get blamed for this addiction~

Well, if I'm going to get blamed, let me lay out the list then:

Battlestar Galactica
Bones
Burn Notice
Californication
Caprica
Chuck
The Colbert Report
Corner Gas
Dollhouse
The Daily Show
Dexter
Doctor Who
Fringe
Heroes
House
How I Met Your Mother
Lie to Me
Pushing Daisies
Supernatural
The Unit
Top Gear
Weeds

Where BSG and Corner Gas are over now. And Pushing Daisies is in the process of airing the last couple of episodes. Still, worth watching.

Why isn't Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles on your list, Doc? I think you'd definitely like it. I think it's my favorite show right now.

It probaby is going to get cancelled though, but they had a hell of a season finale last week. Smile

I got to about episode 7 or 8 of the first season and still really wasn't interested. The Summer Glau shiny just wore off. And what was left was just not good enough for me.

Oddly, T:SCC was one of the few shows that the writer's strike actually helped. They truncated a few storylines that really weren't going anywhere, which helped tremendously. I will seriously miss it if it gets cancelled--the producers have managed to keep the show within cannon for all three films (even T3 which everyone but me hated) and still were able to create their own storylines. It's a twisted timeline, but it works incredibly well. Second season only got better, and even though all the fanboys hated the arc that focused heavily on Sarah's psyche, I loved it more than pie! Very Happy

I think Mayeh is onto something here:

External debt is a measure of a government's foreign liabilities, capital plus interest that a government must eventually pay.
A useful measure of how a country's debt position is by comparing gross external debt to GDP, which offers a direct relation of a country's debt to the size of its economy.

Rankings of the worlds 15 biggest debtor nations:

Canada is not on the list as one of the top 15

at number 15:
United States - 95.09%
External debt (as % of GDP): 95.09%

a tie at number 10
Germany - 137.5%
External debt (as % of GDP): 137.5%
Spain - 137.5%
External debt (as % of GDP): 137.5%


at number 5: (Government must do a lot of TV watching)
Netherlands - 268%
External debt (as % of GDP): 268%

at number 3:
Belgium - 327%
External Debt (as % of GDP): 327%

at number 2: (It is said that the Stig got one of those new security tokens and is still pushing the button trying to get 70 more gallons of nitro for his aftershave)
United Kingdom - 336%
External debt (as % of GDP): 336%

and at the top of the worst: (and you thought you were in deep doo-doo)
Ireland - 811%
External debt (as % of GDP): 811%

the moral of this synopsis is:

The World needs more Tim Horton's to pull us out of this financial mess!

Some Oscar quotes from Corner Gas.

Brent: It's not just you. Dad once got mad at a butterfly. Called it a 'sonofabitch' and told it to get out of his garden.

Brent: That's right, Wes is nuts. This coming from a guy who once punched a skunk.
Oscar: He had it comin'.

Oscar: Who's punching your horses now?

While on my vacation back in January, I went to a friend's house and we saw the first six episodes of this on DVD. Freaking hilarious.

Oh yeah, gogo Supernatural, though my lack of having TV these days prevents me from staying current on it.

I got into House too, but it wasnt due to Doc. And Yes, its so annoying that Hulu only carries 5 episodes. Theyre doing it with every series, or soon will be. Even more annoying, is you have to wait 8 days after the release of the show on TV, to see it on Hulu.

This whole thing about Hulu surprises you?

(In the minds of network execs...) If they had it the moment it aired, less people would watch it on TV, less income from advertising.

(In the minds of network execs...) If they had all episodes online, less people would buy the DVDs.

I'm surprised Hulu is allowed to show stuff at all.
