Simply post the last TV show you watched, what episode it was, and rate/review it.

I last watched the Lost episode "Numbers". This episode is tied for best along with "Pilot" and "Exodus". 5/5

Out Of Practice ''Key Ingredients''

Lydie unwittingly makes a date with her lesbian cooking teacher. After Crystal mistakes Stewart lending her his keys as a gesture of commitment, he seeks advice from his two sons.

Unfortunately, this episode fell a bit flat, because I could see all the jokes coming and the two stories weren't all that exiting. But it did feature a nice little moment near the end between Lydia and Regina about her coming out.

I just hope Joe and Chris know that stories don't always have to revolve around misunderstandings.

3/5

Well I was watching a Seinfeld DVD so I think that counts.

It was season 3 episode 3 "The Dog" - Jerry is on a aeroplane and some man on the plane has a panic attack so Jerry has to look after his dog until the guy can come and pick it up, Jerry doesn't hear from the guy for ages which leads to the plans of Him, George and Elaine to see some movie called "something Prognosis (cant remember what the first name was now) go wrong. Every time theres an opportunity for all three to go see the movie one of them has to look after the dog.

This episode is good because throughout seasons 1 and 2 George and Elaine didnt really become social with each other without jerry, they were always part of the 3 or 4 group (incl kramer). This episode was the first time they were both social without Jerry because he had to stay in and look after the dog.
These pretzels are making me thirsty!

''Prognosis Negative'' was a reference to Larry David's screenplay of the same name.

Speak of the devil. I literally just finished downloading 'The Italian Bob' from bittorrent. Was it a good one?

It was definitely better than most recent entries. (I may be prejudiced because of the presence of KG, though.) :)

It wasn't bad. Nice to see Bob finally conquer the rake, which, sadly, is hereditary. Better than the previous episode, but nothing special.

Smallville - "Commencement" and "Arrival"
Excellent conclusion to the fourth season, and excellent start to the fifth.

Cheers - "Abnormal Psychology"

It was great seeing Lilith again after a short appearance in her first episode and the banter between her and Frasier was great. The ending with them finally getting together was brilliant, Sam and Diane continue to produce the laughs, although the sub-plot with Woody, Norm and Cliff's fishing trip felt a little flat. Other than that, it was a great episode.

Abnormal Psychology is such a good episode! The part where Lilith and Frasier are debating, is so funny!

Cheers Season 1 in full
Brilliant, can't believe I haven't really got into this show before. "Pick A Con. Any Con" was a particular standout.

9.5/10

Pick a con...any con is such a great episode!

Harry Anderson is so brilliant in that episode!

Yes, I agree. That is one of my favourite Harry episodes, he is just so funny, but because he was in Night Court, he hardly appeared in the middle seasons.

Ah I see. I looked at his IMDB profile wondering why a lot of his performances were in the first season; as a Cheers novice I didn't know he wasn't as much of a regular later.

Yeah, I missed him. His season 11 performance though, is fantastic!

Cheers - "House of Horrors With Formal Dining and Used Brick"

I think they could have picked a better episode for the 100th landmark. In my opinion, Carla, Cliff and Norm just don't work well together without the others. Unfortunately this show has the tendencies to have long scenes without a few characters, which is just a little annoyance I have. There were some funny moments though, but this isn't a standout episode.

Smallville - "Reckoning" (the 100th episode)
I would have much rather Lana died instead of the person who did... oh well. Great episode anyway.

Me too, Paul! We've been expecting that person (are we keeping it a secret?) to die for months now, but I was still hoping it would be Lana.

Poor Clark.

It was still a good episode. I personally think Lex is the real star of that show.

Edited to add: Did you download this episode from the internet, or is Smallville shown over there?

I watch loads it would probably be celeb big bros little breakfast this morning, but as far as DVD's go and quality comedy goes I finished watching The Complete Collection of the Vicar of Dibley last night that show is brilliant. My next DVD purchases will be Frasier Season 8 of course, Red Dwarf Series 8 out in March and I will probabley get The Royle Family Complete collection I think they only had 3 Series's, but there is a good deal on amazon at the mo I think it works out to 30 - 35 quid for the lot........ :wink:

Janey, I downloaded the episode. Unfortunately I'm not patient enough to wait - the fifth season premiere only aired here in the UK about two weeks ago. :)

I last watched the ER episode, "Next of Kin". It was good.
