    Hey Ben,

    Yeah I am worried about "The Office." I haven't reviewed it yet but I was deeply unimpressed with the last episode. I don't often say this about shows but I'm not sure there is much more for them to do.

    Michael has outlasted everyone above him at Dunder Mifflin and it now seems like a retread for him to deal with a new set of bosses. With Jim and Pam happy and no focus on the minor characters I can't see a good direction for the show to go in.

    "Chuck" is a tricky one for me. I do kind of turn off my brain and enjoy it because the spy stuff is so ludicrous that I don't get too worried about the storylines.

    I would have enjoyed Chuck and Sarah being a couple and working together but I understand why they want to keep them apart for longer. I've never been a huge fan of the way Jeff and Lester were written but I agree that I miss the 'B' plots now that they aren't always there.

    I don't have the energy right now to write about 30 Rock

    Were you ever a Buffy fan?

    Nah, I am not a Buffy fan, none of my friends ever watched it, so it sort of blew by me.

    I am rather intrigued that you have added it to the site, its not the kind of show I would expect you to review, should be interesting.

    A show I would recommend you to review or just watch is Death Note, its a great anime and it has a solid dub. I'm sure someone else on the forums has seen it.

    My housemate loves anime. Sadly all my network TV fills most of my time but I will keep it in mind...

    I just finished watching the first disc of Dexter season 3! Awesome stuff. I'm three episodes in and love it. The show is just so interesting. And the new (to me) character of Miguel trying to actually be friends with Dexter is great conflict.

    Of course, now that Lost is back, I don't really need much else for filler. Anyone else beyond happy that Juliet is officially deceased? If she comes back and starts talking to Hurley I might hurl.

    I have a feeling Juliet and Sawyer may be heading for some kind of happy ending by season's end. I don't think you should announce your hatreds to the world. Look what happened to Topher. As soon as you dislike someone they start to become more prominent in a show

    Well, since I completely bailed on Dollhouse, I never had to see Topher get all prominent and stuff. So that's okay. And I don't hate Juliet. I just think she should wear a bra and stuff. I hate Kate more, and she's still around. But at least Lost makes up for it with other good stuff.

    She should wear a bra? You have no idea what makes good TV do you?
