Re: Fans of Le Television

I just wish they had an anime channel on Foxtel over here in Oz, even if its all dubs.

Re: Fans of Le Television

I don't know if it's the same everywhere, but for me, you can only get the Anime Network if you have digital cable. Whenever I'm at a friend's house, I go to Anime Network on Demand to see what they have. For us cheap folks, Adult Swim is the only anime I ever get. Well, plus things like Naruto on Toonami.

Speaking of fantastic Brit com, all I want to do tonight is watch Peep Show. But I gave my DVDs to my sister. emot-mad If you want to have some idea of what this show is like, observe: THE BEHAVIOUR OF AN ODDBALL. emot-rofl

Re: Fans of Le Television

I (finally) started watching Wonderfalls! It's really a great series, definitely cancelled well before its time. I think that in terms of Bryan Fuller created series (for me):

1. Dead Like Me
2. Wonderfalls
3. Pushing Daisies

I like Pushing Daisies, but I just feel that it doesn't have that same biting, sarcastic quality that makes the other two so enjoyable. The three are still probably my favorite tv series ever, nevertheless.


Boy, you're gonna carry that weight.

Boondocks. I really like Boondocks. Especially the episone with Martin Luther King Jr. and the one where Riley tries to save an innocent man from the electric chair.

I also like Robot Chicken. That sure brings back the old days.... they even have an episode with Sailormoon skits.  emot-tongueemot-rofl

Re: Fans of Le Television

I really love how much of a Monk fan girl my mother is. There was a new episode of Monk where he thought he was five years old again. He was excitedly eating pancakes and saying how his mother never made pancakes for breakfast, and then asked the Captain if they could stop to buy syrup on the way to a crime scene.

Because of that, my mom bought two bottles of syrup without us asking. To me, that's just awesome of her. emot-biggrin She may not be an anime fan girl, but I love seeing her display fan girl qualities over something.

You have no idea how much that torments me. However, my cable's out right now, and if it's not back on by Wednesday, I can't watch either of them.

If I do get it back, I'm watching Pushing Daisies. ANTM reruns on Sundays anyway, and there's going to be a marathon on MTV or VH1 before the finale.


Sometimes I wonder if I'm ever gonna make it home again.
It's so far and out of sight.

Re: Fans of Le Television

The only reason I haven't posted in this thread before is I thought "Le Television" was prob the name of some French show that had aired overseas before Aussie. emot-rofl

Adrasteia wrote: I grew up on Xena, and it just sort of stuck with me. It's such a great, campy show, and the directors really have fun with it - did you know that Xena not only saved Helen from the Battle of Troy, but also discovered Jesus and put Lucifer in Hell? etc-love And obviously she was the one who convinced Brutus to killed Caesar. emot-tongue Seriously, I can't express how much I love this show.

Quoted for truth. Xena: Warrior Princess (lol the name) has always been an amazing show to me, because of its shifting genres, campiness, Xena/Gabrielle relationship no matter what you think about it, and Greek gods written as sluts! school-devil
Xena seems to have been connected to every famous historical event which is hilarious,
not to mention everything in her dark and evil past happened "ten winters ago". etc-wankgirl Ooh I love that show...
Adrasteia, (shamless self-plug here) if you like Xena parody fanfic, or Xena AMVs check out the links in my sig.

satyr wrote: I'm an unapologetic Whedonite; I think Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Firefly were all masterpieces.

I'm another unapologetic Whedonite. emot-biggrin Only for me I rank those 3 shows: Buffy, Firefly, Angel. BTVS...*drools* it made fun of itself sooo well, and I'll never get over the clever writing inherent in the way that the characters talk. Talented stuff.

In fact Xena & Buffy are right up there with my SKU addiction. I've been a loyal fan of the shows and member of their net communities since they were released in Aussie, and I welcome any fans of them from here to chat with me about them anytime. etc-love

Adrasteia also wrote: Buffy herself was never one of my favorite characters, but she, along with the rest of the cast, had plenty enough development to make them sympathetic

I'm one of those rarer (I've found) fans who holds Buffy as my fave character. Which is not to say I like her emot-aaa...something I admire about how Buffy is written is I feel she has become distinctly unlikable by the final season! And that her role as slayer has forced her into this position.

SexingTouga24/7/365 wrote:Absolutely Fabulous-- etc-love etc-love etc-love It's not a show, it's a religion.

OMG Absolutely Fabulous makes me laugh so much. Such good writing of humor...I'm in awe. Patsy is my fave character since she's constantly stoned and drunk out of her slutty mind emot-tongue, but hey who couldn't feel sorry for Saffy? Her life SUCKS.

Lady Nilamarthiel wrote: I miss watching Fawlty Towers. emot-frown

*sigh* Fawlty Towers, a great show; John Cleese at his best. It elevated him to becoming my fave Monty Python member.

And like several fine people here, I too like Lost.
It hasn't become a disappointment for me...I've enjoyed every season avidly (remember Australia is a season behind US, so I can't comment on the latest...) But I find it hard to rewatch, since its such a "suspense by mystery" show and keeps moving forward.

EDIT: A word on the Lost computer game: what a waste of money! emot-mad
It's so linear and with massive "save freezes"...and yet, I was tempted about playing an original character along with the cast...
I've gotta say part of the reason it sucks for me is I'm BAD at puzzles. Heh.
Anyway I shouldn't be surprised at its suckiness - when has there ever been a good pc game made from a tv show/movie? They're so rare.

Damn you Nip/Tuck. Damn you for having possible similarities with Utena. Damn you for having a character that is creepily similar to Akio. Damn you also for being so addicting. And having Julian McMahan. Who is a hotty.

I'm talking about Quentin Costa. He is pretty damn close to Akio, it's a little unnerving. And yes the show is still going, though I have been watching the DVDs.
