Questions For The Universe

::: Why isn't thirtysomething out on DVD yet? I love that show. It'd be great to watch from the exercise bike.

::: Why is Hollywood determined to ruin my Christmas? This is the first year in a long time without a lavish film spectacle to incorporate into my holidays. I'm actually quite depressed about it. I guess I'll just have to break out the LOTR dvds. You know, I've come to associate Spectacle Movies with Christmas so much that I'd go to a theatrical rerelease of just about any of the biggies. Except King Kong. That was celluloid excrement.

::: Is it fall or winter-with-orange-leaves? This weather makes me sad.

::: Why aren't auto-diallers illegal everywhere? I'm spoiled, because they're illegal in Indiana. I think Tennessee should take notice.

::: When will the entertainment world realise that the only show I want a "message" from is The Wire? I excitedly TiVo'd the newest Cracker outing on Auntie Beeb, only to have it start off with a screed against America and the Iraq war. Like, I get that many people hate us and the idea of the Iraq War. But if I want to peruse those feelings I'll just go to the internet, thanks. Don't need a fat alcoholic whose ruined his own family through his destructive selfishness to start opining against the war.

Hi Katherine,

This does not relate to your content per se, but I want to thank you for switching back to this theme. It is far, far easier to read than the previous two themes you had goin' there.

Respectfully,
Timmy W.

You and the other Tim. Hubs hated those.

I guess they must have looked better on a Mac.

I think my Template-tinkering days are over. ;-p

Did thirtysomething use a lot of popular music in it? If so, then that's probably the reason. There are a few other shows that would be out now if it weren't for that.

Yea, I heard something about thirtysomething not being out yet because of the music. Which is too bad, because it is an awesome show, and I will be very happy if/when I can subject my husband to it. I'm happy they finally released St. Elsewhere.

There really are no big blockbusters coming this Christmas, are there? It was nice with LOTR, each year we could count on something good. Greeks are all excited about that "300" movie, although I think folks are going to be disappointed.

We have a tradition of seeing Harry Potter I think the day after Thanksgiving. I don't think one is coming out this time.

I'm thinking that thirtysomething isn't out yet due to musical clearances from the shows. That seems to be a common denominator in a lot of shows from that time frame not being available...

It's why WKRP will never see the light of day on DVD, tragically.

You're forgetting that Casino Royale is coming out.

Also, that big fantasy movie Eragon is coming out.
