Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Hello [chat].

    I played Munchkin for the first time today. It was fun.

    Though I suppose the fun level of a game like this depends on who you play it with.

    I wrote an article about the fool's errand of ranking the 10 best TV shows of the last decade.

    http://www.aintitcool.com/node/42265

    there's a shit-ton of shows that didn't make the list that have great arguments for them, which points to my larger idea that the 2000's is by far the best decade for Television ever. We got an embarrassment of riches these past 10 years.

    I'm watching Hook right now. It's quite possibly still one of the best movies ever.

    Hook was the first film I saw at the cinema. My brother took me and bought me juice and popcorn (and it was then that we learned I don't really like popcorn).

    Don't get me wrong, there's plenty of girls with nice teeth here. Just... when I first came here to teach, I was surprised that I had a kid with braces. Surprised because from my previous time studying abroad, I thought orthodontics didn't exist here.

    I wonder if it has to do with the relative cost for studying abroad? Every Chinese girl here has a family that's something close to royalty ('cause the others can't afford it) and it seems like the Koreans are similar...

    Or do wealthy Japanese people also have shitty teeth?

    Firefly? Really?

    That one and my leaving off of West Wing seems to be the biggest sticking points.

    Some people are wondering why Sopranos or Curb Your Enthusiasm didn't crack the top 10, but not as many as I thought.

    Dexter is.

    Dunno.

    Although the girl who sells masks at festivals (that my elementary kids tried to set me up with, goddamn 4th graders) would've been a lot more cute if she kept her mouth shut >.<

    It's fair that there's too much good in the 2000s. But really, Firefly wasn't exceptional. It had a nice atmosphere and fun plots, but it was conventional.

    Wait, which season would you pick over 5? The one where Cox loses 3 patients in one day puts that season over the top almost all by itself.

    And I'll defend South Park Season 8 to the death. That season was fucking brilliant writing. Some of the targets were obvious, but even so, they perfected the characterization and the plotting/gag-writing was almost flawless.

    Sorkin just rubs me wrong for whatever reason. I'll say this - early drafts of the list had West Wing Season 3 on the honorable mentions, as well as Sports Night. First I cut West Wing season 3. Then I cut Sports Night.

    Well you just said it, "by itself"

    Yea My Lunch is an extremely great episode but the rest of the season is not nearly as good.

    I guess I'd pick season 2 or 3.

    Do people pronounce yea and yeah the same way? I say it like "yay", but in contexts like "though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death" and not "like, new shoes".

    I think 3 is better than 2, and you could make a pretty good case for 3 beating out 5, but I dunno, in the end, 5 just worked better for me. I remember plowing through the seasons a couple years ago and feeling that Season 5 was the pinnacle, that it was so OBVIOUSLY peaking. And then I saw Season 6 and knew that while it was good, it wasn't going to be as good as it was.

    "Yea" is correctly pronounced "yay," and is used formally. As a substitute for "yeah," "yea" is just a misspelling.
