    Funny how online the same topics are often repeated over and over again. I need to save more links to old threads that are often fascinating looks at choices and the whys.

    Anyone see "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind?" Recently close friends are divorcing and this movie came to mind. Long time relations that end seem so sad given the life investment and the friends, connections, and other complications.

    Not much on TV, love cspan Book TV and some of their coverage of the nitwits who by some magical formula actually get elected, and then sit on their hands except when money appears.

    Watch 'House' occasionally, it actually covers some tough topics and my wife watches it. Also HGTV has some interesting geography and living places. And of course News - the insane coverage of the simple made confusing.

    Edit: I forgot Current TV which has some fascinating stuff. http://current.com/shows/vanguard/ Vanguard piece on 'Arming the Mexican Cartels' was amazing. Having traveled to Juarez many years ago boy has that place changed. Drugs, nafta, and guns make for a bad recipe. Natgeo is great too as is Nova.

    Check out Fifty Documentaries too. Great great stuff. http://artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/08/29/the-one-must-see-documentary/

    Movies:
    American Beauty
    American Graffiti - our teenage years
    Being There - (and book) perfect political movie
    Birdy
    Blow-up - as a photographer fascinating
    Boxing Helena - bizarre love
    Death of a Salesman (play)
    Dinner with Andrea
    Dual
    Focus (more powerful than book)
    Groundhog Day
    In Cold Blood ( and book)
    Koyaanisqatsi (1983)Life out of balance - and subsequent visual movies
    Mad Max
    Pawnbroker
    Pink Panther - there was only one Peter Sellers
    Raising Arizona - LOL
    Waiting for Godot (play)
    You're a Big Boy Now

    favorite TV shows right now... Modern Family, Revenge, Prime Suspect...

    note... I get only the sub-basic caveman cable service...

    which means I don't get HBO, Showtime, or any other of those "premium" channels...

    hafta pay $50 more a month to get 'em...

    not worth it...

    thank you, Cox-uckers...

    I used to think that if I could just keep one series for watching over and over on a desert island ... a desert island with electrical power and a DVD player of course ... it would be X-files.


    But apparently I was wrong. X-files is on the shelf collecting dust and the series I've been watching from start to finish and then starting over again is Charmed.

    The only series I would like to have to watch over and over woud be all the seasons of the original Star Trek and also The Next Generation.

    Current TV shows we watch or kinda sorta watch when they are running in the background:

    Master Chef
    Hell's Ktichen
    Worst Cooks in America

    Project Runway
    Biggest Loser
    American Idol
    X Factor
    America's Got Talent
    Dancing with the Stars
    So You Think You Can Dance

    Expedition Impossible
    The Amazing Race
    Survivor

    And the Mentalist

    Movies there are WAY too many to list as I am an all time movie junkie but if it is one from the 50's through the 90's that just about everybody has heard of, and isn't slap stick or a slasher movie and/or doesn't have a lot of gratuitous sex and/or violence, it is probably on my list.

    Only a few really good movies have been made in the last 15-20 years, however, just like very little really good music has been written in the last 20 years.

    The pendulum will swing back though.

    Oh and add Harry's Law to TV shows we usually catch. We've really gotten hooked on that one. :)

    The current TV shows I watch are Survivor, Dancing with the Stars, and The Mentalist.

    And oh yes, I just started watching Once Upon a Time, which is two episodes into the series. I don't see how that series can last very long. Not that it's bad. It's pretty interesting. But the story arc looks like it would have to end pretty soon. Seems like it would be contrived and significantly less interesting if they took it to a second season.

    But maybe they will surprise me.
