Swingers

Finally, finally, I am watching this movie. Austin has been bugging me about watching this for a while, so I got it from Blockbuster Online. I think the only part I'd seen before was the very end. It was good. I liked it.

Love Monkey: Coming Out

It's really too bad this show was canceled. There were flashes of near-brilliance, and it was just not given the chance to really suceed. I think the biggest problem with the show was that everything always worked out for Tom in the end. They never allowed him to fail. Oh well, what could have been.

(I didn't keep/watch the "Best of Auditions" so that's why there's missing episodes. Plus I haven't found/looked for a comprehensive episode guide and I may not have the correct episode numbers.)

The Tick: The Tick vs. Education

The Tick teaches a class on being a superhero. One of my Top 5 favorite episodes. Love Sarcastro.
