Is it me or is the eleventh season really awful?


It may be you. I really love the 11th season. It's one of my very favourite seasons. The Frasier/Lilith breakup was fantastic, I thought.

I think season 11 is a good season, although my favourite is season 5, without a doubt.

I haven't seen too many episodes from the eleventh season, but I really enjoyed the episode - "The Bar Manager, The Shrink, His Wife and Her Lover" - where Lilith comes back to find Frasier and Rebecca in bed together, and then later on, her boyfriend turns up and takes everyone hostage at Cheers, including John Allen Hill and Paul! :)

An episode I'd like to see is "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Bar." I have the movie that the title/plot of the episode was based on ("It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" - it revolves around a group of people going on a madcap hunt for $350,000, which they learn is hidden under a "big W." So I've always been curious to see this episode, as I imagine it would be funny to have the Cheers gang searching for a load of money they believe is hidden in the bar.

catching up on Curb Your Enthusiasm. Watched the series one episode 'Beloved Aunt' on More 4 - the one with the dead aunt and the newspaper obituary - hilarious.

Even funnier, though, was the pains that More 4 was going to to warn about the use of 'extremely strong language' that was going to be in the second half of the episode :D

Can't get enough of this series at the moment

ER - "Be Still My Heart"
I knew that would happen to Lucy but it's still upsetting. :( She was one of my most favourite characters!

Just watched last night's American Chopper... Mikey running around at the station that shoots the show.

These guys make some cool bikes, and i'm not a biker.

ER - "All in the Family"
Another excellent although heartbreaking season six episode. I loved Lucy!

Scrubs - "My Buddy's Booty"
Worst episode ever. Bad acting, bad characterization and no funny jokes. I don't like this season at all.

My husband and I were in London from the 23rd to the 28th, visiting our daughter who is over there studying. We watched Life on Mars and loved it. I wish it would be broadcast here in the US. You get plenty of American shows, but we see hardly any British shows. Life on Mars is a winner.

Lost - "Maternity Leave"

Excellent episode! Some questions answered, more raised, and an interesting style of flashbacks. Like the first Claire-centric episode, this was a classic.

Hi...haven't posted here in ages, but checked the board and was taken by Paul's watching of Lost. I just love this show, it is totally mesmerizing to me and I can't wait for each new show. This past one was awesome, so well done and gripping.

Just watched My Name Is Earl. The episode with him trying to make it up to his dad for ruining his election campaign.

Not as good as previous episodes imo, but i love this series.

Frontline ''The Souffle Rises''

Mike, angered by accusations of being a lightweight, decides to editorialize. Such a decision sparks a rash of complications. Meanwhile, Brooke and Marty have their hands full on more important matters.

Frontline is one of only three Australian programs I watch. The others being The Games, a brilliant satire of the 2000 Olympic games organisation committee, and the gut-wrenchingly human drama, Love My Way.

Friends - The One With The Free Porn. (from my season 4 DVD)

I know a lot of people on here don't like it but episodes like this one makes me realise why it was so popular.

I love 'Friends'! I also love that episode, season four was probably my favourite. I've began to import the American season boxsets - extended episodes and special features :D

I'm not ashamed to admit that I love the show. I'm fairly open minded when it comes to TV - you just have to look at my DVD collection!

The Friends hate is unfounded. That's all I have to say.

I prefer the American boxsets. I have all of the UK boxsets (the older Manhattan skyline ones) and have the American region 1 DVD's of seasons 3 and 10.

I bought the skyline editions of the first six seasons, then the 'new' editions of seasons 7-10 (which promised extended episodes but didn't have them).

I've started to sell the skyline boxets on eBay so I can import the American versions instead.
