I didn't want to clutter the baseball thread with frivolousness (I'd never dream of it), but I thought some of you might get a kick out of this:

I'm sure more than a few are apocryphal.

I still feel the need to point out that Hunter's song (on last week's The Office) was written and performed by Todd Fancey of the New Pornographers. My friend was a sound engineer and played bass. I would have posted it on Screen Jam, but it isn't, um, recent. This fact makes me feel insidery.

Huh? What's this thread in aid of? Any particular TV show in mind? Or will this be an everyday occurrence?

When I saw this thread title I was terrified, for a moment, that I was about to miss the return of Lost, but that's next week. Right?

I really wanted to watch baseball tonight, so in the absence to the Dodgers I'm having to watch the Angels. Rex Hudler ... painful.

Now I know why my son always uses a fake name at Starbucks.

6 I do to. It's amusing to me and nobody else.

That's what makes it funny.

Not my favorite episodes of 30 and Office tonight. Fine but nothing special, except for Jim and Pam. They were great.

Agreed. Office wasn't particularly memorable, and the Jim and Pam thread was pretty lovely. It's almost like they were in an entirely different movie, as it were.

Missed 30 Rock, because my Tivo update crapped out and so it didn't record it. Did anyone die?

9 - Mr. Eko died. No, wait ...

Richard Nixon died in 30 Rock.

I found 30 Rock heavy handed and thoroughly unfunny.

The subtlety of a sledgehammer.

30 Rock was quite mediocre and quite possibly the worst so far this season, but I thought the Office was actually pretty dang funny (especially compared to last week's). I hope the Jim and Pam saga doesn't get too soap opera-y though.
