Time for another Top 5

1. Simpsons-Pure genius. I love everything about this show. It has a heart, a brain, and really cool quotes. I haven't caught a new episode in many moons and the morons at the Honolulu WB affiliate That Shall Remain Nameless stopped airing reruns. My favorite episode is Lisa's Wedding, closely followed by the flaming Homer episode.

2. Law & Order-Sigh. I still can't miss L&O, even with the Femme-Bot (tm Greg) and the shamelessly unoriginal writing. I have quite a few favorite episodes, so I'd be hard pressed to pick one. I hate the L.A. three-parter, though, and to this day will change the channel if it comes on A&E.

3. Wiseguy-Does anybody else remember this show? Anybody? I think I may be the only one. Ken Wahl, who was sort of a proto-Chris Noth, played a secret agent who went to different assignments every few weeks. For a while, he was investigating the mob; a few weeks later, the music biz. I didn't miss a single episode. I was hooked, even after Ken ran off with a record exec's widow.

4. Moonlighting-Sort of a guilty pleasure, I guess. I like the one where they act out The Taming of the Shrew.

5. Red Dwarf-This is a comedy made in England and they show it on BBC America from time to time. Sometimes kind of gross, sometimes shockingly good.


FemmeBot isn't my (tm) -- it's Stella's!

Actually, Stella learned me "FemmeBot" in e-mail, but I used it publically on HIStories.

I LOVED the Taming of the Shrew episode of Moonlighting. What a pleasure it was to watch .Thanks for the remembering smile.

No offense taken, Greg and Jen! (Honestly, I don't know how or where I got FemmeBot, except that I started using the term after the posters at Jumptheshark.com voted "Barbie joins the show" as the #1 reason why L&O has, ahem, ha saltado el tiburon.)

I still have warm fuzzy memories about the "Taming of the Shrew" episode of Moonlighting. I do want to watch Wiseguy, though, if only to see that episode arc they did with Kevin Spacey as an incestuous bad guy.

And, yes, the Simpsons totally rule.
