CRZ Big Brother Administrator Since: 9.12.01 From: ミネアポリス Since last post: 4 hours Last activity: 2 hours # 1 Posted on 8.1.11 0112.31 | Instant Rating: 9.31 Hello. "What new DVDs are out 1/11/11," I hear you asking, to which I reply: "Damn, that's a whole lotta ONES!" But ANOTHER way to answer that is with the following list of (count 'em) 297 titles! PICK OF THE WEEK Funny or Die Presents: Season One (The W at Amazon) (HBO, 2010) I didn't hold out a lot of hope for this show, but it was always on around the same time as "The Ricky Gervais Show" (see last week's PotW) so I would always watch it - and it was surprisingly good! It helped that almost all of the contributors were people I liked from other projects. Tim & Eric contributed a few films, "Drunk History" was always a treat...but I think the LOLest bit was the recurring "Designated Driver" from Rob Riggle and Paul Scheer. And, yes, Season 2 premieres...wow, this Friday (1/14).

Very happy to see The Social Network finally out, as I wanted to see this one. I probably would have seen it in theaters, but I was too busy watching Jackass 3D and other less-serious stuff. Speaking of the comedy, I watched the Comedy Central version of the Louis C.K. special, and it didn't really do anything for me. Too much alternating between sad sack and angry guy for me. Of course, right after that airs, the next thing on was the Roast of David Hasselhoff. And now after reading this thread, it all makes sense. "Put on your helmets, we'll be reaching speeds of 3!" "It was nice of you to give that dead woman another chance." "All right, look alive everybody...oh sorry Susan."- MST3K: Space Mutiny Click Here (myspace.com)
