This is your brain. This is a bad movie. This is your brain watching a bad movie. Any questions?

Ace has put our last month of Blockbuster online to the test. He has rented himself a doozie.

The Date Movie.

I don't even know who is in this movie, but I just watched the opening segment, and I had to leave because I physically felt the brain cells oozing out of my ear, screaming as they abandoned ship.

And he will watch the WHOLE thing. No matter how terribly poor it is. He watched some other movie a month or so ago. Stayed up past midnight just to finish it. Said it was the worse movie he has seen in a LOOONG time.

We have two rating systems.

As bad as The Island of Dr. Moreau and
Worse than The Island of Dr. Moreau.

The Date Movie... that falls in the latter category.

So let's talk about The Office instead. So if you Tivo'd The Office but haven't watched it yet, leave.

Ok. Now that the techie geeks are out of here (just kidding.. it really is veiled jealousy from which I speak), I have to say that this series has restored my faith in the television season. No, it can't make up for a disappointing Desperate Housewives, or a totally predictable Nip/Tuck.

It can, however, take my mind away for 30 minutes. And one more of these episodes, and it is the mother of all season premieres. No, not Lost.

Battlestar Galactica.

Yeah. I talk a lot about it. So what? it's my blog, right?

I cannot WAIT for it to start. Next Friday. October 6. 10:00 pm. I have a Stampin' Up party that night, and then I will be all primed and ready to go for some BG action.

Oh wait. I was talking about The Office.

I loved the British version so much that I didn't want to give the American version a chance. I started watching it in the middle of the first season, and now I just watch it every week. I love this show. I love Michael and Pam and Jim and Dwight. All of them. Just love them. And I hate to admit it, but I am rooting for Michael and Jan to hook back up. You know she wants to.

So now I will take my geeky self and go watch some outtakes from The Office because my television has been taken hostage.

Umm, could you fix my TT on my blog? I'm such a retard. I have somehow erased the link (that purple "Thursday Thirteen" picture) while I was trying to add the blogroll. Can you help me?

Okay, I've heard enough about The Office to be more than mildly curious to see it. Are back episodes on DVD?

Jenny. I don't know if there are any on DVD, yet. At least not the American version. I do know that the British (original) is out and rentable or buyable.

You are so funny. Battlestar Galactica? The Office?

I can't even imagine how bad that movie was;)

Now if you want to see a bad Blockbuster, watch the Adam Sandler cartoonl I don't even remember the title - something about Christmas. We thought it was a kids movie - NOT!!!

But I have to admit there were some awesome lines. For instance,
"Smell ya later, Poopsicle."

Which of course, my children repeated for a month.

The Office and Project Runway are all I watch these days.

The Office is so *on* as to office politics, it has to resonate with millions of people.

I loved the British version too (that part what the boss brings in his guitar and makes everyone listen?) but have to say Steve Carrell makes the American version perfect.

Kim, I couldn't agree with you more. I really think that Steve Carrell is perfect for the Ricky Jervais part. And there was that one scene in the British version where the boss is standing in the middle of a circle of his employees, doing this really bad dance. It was hilarious.
