    I've seen every episode of Community. If you watch, only watch the Dan Harmon seasons (last season was not run by Dan Harmon, but he's back this season). The fantasy eps they do like the epic paintball ones are simply outstanding TV.

    I have Cosmos on my DVR but haven't had a chance to watch it yet, but everything I've read says it was outstanding.
    Insert pithy saying here.

    The first few seasons of Community are great. I stopped watched after the whole Harmon/NBC dustup. Even though he's back I haven't gone back to watching it. I wouldn't recommend any particular episodes because it's one of those shows where you have to watch a few to get the hang of it's style and energy before you start to appreciate it. Pointing out this episode or that would probably just ruin that episode for you.

    I actually really liked the first season of Rescue Me, for what it's worth. After that, not so much.

    Also, anyone catch that Cosmos show with Neil Degrasse Tyson? Howd that go?
    I liked it. It was a bit "light", in my opinion. Especially compared to something like Through the Wormhole. But it's pitched at the level of "lay people", for lack of a better term, and we need shows like that. Top notch production values, though I find the computer graphics stuff a bit hokey even when it's done well. I never really watched the original so I can't speak to how well it's carried on that spirit, even though the episode was written by Sagan's widow and she apparently wrote the originals. Tyson doesn't seem particularly comfortable yet. He's better being off the cuff, imo. Though I suppose he could improve. I'll record and watch at least the next two.

    Big ups to Seth McFarlane of all people for putting up the money to get it on the air, btw.

    I love this season of community so far. The last episode was great. Night and day difference with Harmon back.

    Broncos are unloading the chamber. Can't blame Elway, but he's gonna have to pay the piper once Peyton retires.

I mean, I realize there are studies out there that show that religious people on the whole score worse (in some cases much worse) on tests of scientific knowledge than people who aren't religious, but at some point you're going to annoy your base science crowd with too many asides aimed at the peanut gallery.

    So it looks like im going to have to catch up on Community, thanks. And heard about the Harmon flare up, cant imagine watching the season he was gone for. Cant imagine watching it sober at least.

    Agreed, it had a lot of promise. I actually enjoyed the first few seasons, though it progressively ground away at me. Out of curiosity i read up on the final season, to see if they resolved any of the loose threads they floated around. From my understanding, what they decided to focus on was....Tommy's drinking, fighting off retirement, whatever horrifying personal disaster they throw at his face just for the sake of throwing it at his face. So basically, the answer to my curiosity was: a whole lot of no.

    I cant figure out what television trope i despise more: shows that turn towards hurting the main character repeatedly instead of coming up with creative ideas or comedies that turn to physical humor or gags when they run out of humorous stories/jokes.
    "Ignorance is not an excuse" were the words Goodell used when describing why those involved in the Saints bounty scandal would not avoid punishment.

    Hickey signed a good tackle, decent defensive tackle. He also resigned Grimes and Starks. I don't see a troll thread from any of the members of Team Douchebag™ stating how great of a GM Hickey is.

    I'm disappointed. For shame, Team Douchebag™, for shame.

    Overpaid for a decent, aging, injury-prone OT and made the no-brainer move of re-signing Grimes. I'll wait and see what he does with the rest of FA, the draft, and see how his players perform before jerking off to the job he's done.
