I love Monk.   It's ok if everyone else hates it -- I'm used to it...

Not that much.

I've been watching the art series on PBS, some British guy is talking about Rembrant, and the other great masters, it's really good, and really funny:  "Ever the clever one, Rem-brant was happy to take the coin of the merchants of Amsterdam toward his own betterment, careful to clothe them in opulent cloth and just enough esteem not to belie their humble servant of God faces..."

That's a poor approximation, but the writing is really funny and supercilious and gives you a decent eye into the soul of the artist, if possible in 60 min., and not, of course, without a lot of florid prose and whoever the straight faced host delivering the lines is...

I like Tony Shaloub, and I used to like Monk okay, too.  I don't usually last with a show for its whole life, though; and the way they first had it on all the time, and then made it hard to find....well, I just stopped looking for it.

I think that was what they wanted to achieve.

Seems that I have the same habit that you mentioned toward viewing. You probably recall that Monk had a lot of PR post-9/11.  I don't doubt at all that there were some people who responded by telling the sponsors what they thought. Usually that's the kind of thing that causes the switching around of time-slots, etc.

Shaloub was terrific in "Barton Fink".

What does Monk have to do with 9/11?

By the way, the Networks might be showing re-runs but HBO is still strong Sunday nights with Entourage followed by Flight of the Conchords.  I've been catching up with FOTC on demand.  Its good.

It's not that they've moved it around...they just have a wierd deason.   They do eight or so episodes and then they break for several months and then they do eight new episodes.

It starts again this Friday  (13th) at 9pm on USA.   Psyche follows immediately after that.

season not deason...


not sure if it's 9pm in every time zone -- I suppose cable channels could do a better job of that than broadcast, but I notice HBO only has two feeds -- East Coast and West Coast.  So I guess the people in the middle get whatever...   Of Course Central Time ZSoners are already used to one hour earlier and Moutain time zoners are already used to nothing making any sense...

I've seen all of the FOTC episodes twice, and I am completely hooked.  I'm dreading the day, which I hope will never come, when it starts sucking.

T-Horse -- Harrie is right, I do watch a bit of the old boob tube -- Lost, House, original CSI, and Bones.   Others I watch sporadically -- Numbers (not about a team of anesthesiologists) and 2 1/2 Men.

Trojanhorse, re:#298

East and West HBO and the people in between.

They get it in Spanish language version.  As well as HD.

One of the funniest programs, I caught in passing, the other night was the Spanish Language channel doing  one of those Tibetan lama wandering in the lanscape things when a flying Taoist shaman shows up to talk with him. Both had exaggerated black fake eyebrows as part of their makeup while talking in menacing Spanish about things not occidental. I was about to turn it off and go back to this or whatever until I realized that my cat was in the official television viewing chair with her ears perked up alert and taking it all in as if it was the most interesting thing in the world. So I left it on for her and went on to mind my own business. We all have our viewing habits.

Well I'm kind of annoyed.  I got into Lost recently and finished NetFlixing the second season only to find out the third season isn't going to be available until December.  I believe the fourth season starts in January.
