Definition of pathetic ...

me driving around town paying the car rego and whatnot, and seeing a number plate DMP, and immediately thinking "Doublemeat Palace", and then a bit further on seeing another number plate FFL ("Fool For Love" of course), and then spending the rest of my trip looking for more number plates to fit a Buffy episode.  Note to self: please find a life.

Brief thoughts on TV (no spoilers) - thoroughly enjoyed both Veronica Mars (wah, only one more episode left), and Lost (I'm still not sure what to make of Locke), and didn't even bother downloading Gilmore Girls - I think, sadly, that it has not only jumped the shark, but also may have been eaten by it.  Haven't watch all of it but LMAO at the opening scene in the new series of Family Guy:

"Everyone, I've got bad news," says Peter "We've been cancelled."
"Oh, no, Peter," responds wife Lois. "How could they do that?"
"Unfortunately, there's no more room on the schedule. We've just got to accept the fact that Fox has to make room for terrific shows like Dark Angel, Titus, Undeclared, Action, That '80s Show, Wonderfalls, Fastlane, Andy Richter Controls the Universe, Skin, Girls Club, Cracking Up, The Pitts, Firefly, Get Real,  Freakylinks, Wanda at Large, Costello, The Lone Gunmen,  A Minute With Stan Hooper, Normal, Ohio, Pasadena, Harsh Realm, Keen Eddie, The Street, American Embassy, Cedric the Entertainer, The Tick, Luis' and Greg the Bunny. But I suppose if all those shows go down the tubes, we might have a shot."

Heh, heh, still makes me laugh ...

Yep... they showed all but the last one that they had in the can... decided we needed more Paris Hilton stupidity instead.

The thing is, season 2 was really shaping up to be strong, and then they booted it... they have no foresight or nurturing anymore. Sigh.

I've certainly read opinions here and there that in the current climate even Buffy would've made it past S1 or S2. I miss those sort of shows, something with intelligence, humour and a touch of quirkiness - thank heavens for dvds!
LOL... I got you. Buffy absolutely wouldn't have made it in this climate--and Angel wouldn't've had a full first season, either, I don't think. It's pretty atrocious--the procedural dramas and the reality shows are seemingly all they want to make. Gotta say, it's giving me time to write fic like never before, just because there's nothing to watch.
