Loll,

TV addicts you all are!

The only show i watch is Neighbours and for the rest sometimes the news, a documentary or something of that sort.

Actually, I watch My Name is Earl and The Office.
I used to watch ER, but stopped when it became a little to soap opera-y.

However, my TV habits resemble yours. I'll sit through pretty much anything on the History Channel.

I was just watching the Robot Chicken DVD and there's a skit where this guy gets shot in the head with an arrow, and then is sent to heaven where he spins the "wheel of reincarnation". One of the choices was 'Keira Knightley's underwear' and he wanted that one. St. Paul said everybody wants that one. It was funny. Then Keira was at the end of the skit. But it definitely wasn't Keira's voice. Am I rambling?

Haha, yes it was. There was a six-month old hamburger under the one kid's bed, and his friend dared him to eat it. He did, then died (obviously, because what else would happen? Diarrhea? What's Diarrhea?) and the blonde friend could see his buddies 'spirit' because of the inevitable guilt.

I specifically remember one joke, and that's it.

The original Batman TV show is more just hilarious than a quality Batman project. The animated series was all over the real comics. Same deal with X-Men the animated series, although X-Men was unbelievably confusing.

The 1st 2 seasons of Alias are awesome but its getting a bit tired.
