Dave!I think the 18-20 hour work days are finally getting to me. Just one more day left before I am caught up and can go back to a more sane schedule. Thankfully television is in reruns, or else I'd be screwed. It's bad enough I'm two weeks behind on email, I don't think I could handle being behind two weeks on TiVo.

There is something new happening on HBO though. Six Feet Under is actually getting good again (after a disastrous run last year). The fact that they brought back the utterly brilliant Illeana Douglas for a guest shot is just icing on the cake. Would somebody please give her a series?

HBO's other brilliant show, Entourage, remains highly entertaining despite the fact that the main plot for the series has kind of stalled right now. Some of this has to do with the amazing writing talent behind the show's better-than-real dialogue, but MOST of the credit has to go to Jeremy Piven, who completely rules the earth as slimy talent manager Ari Gold. I wish that they would shift the focus of the show to him since his character is anything but boring. If not, would somebody give him a series? Or better yet, bring back the best show ever to air on television, Cupid?

And last on my television hit list... why did ABC stop re-runnning Grey's Anatomy? The more I watch it, the more I like it... even when it's an episode I've seen before. I could have really used an episode last night. The good news is that TV Shows on DVD is reporting that the series will come out on DVD soon. I wonder how soon is "soon"?

Argh. I'm falling asleep while typing this. Here's hoping I can get more than 4 hours sleep before starting all over again.

    I Think Ilieana Douglas is one of the most beautiful women i have ever seen. Her face is magnificent.
    Six Feet Under is my must see tv show.
    Sigh. Though not now, as it’s not playing here.

    Have you ever seen the movie “Grace of my Heart”? Illeana is superb in this film.

    Jeremy Piven on the other hand is just plain superb. One of the most underrated actors of our day.

  5. That is the best movie ever. (HiFi) – Just reading that little quote warmed my heart.

    I’m just now discovering “Entourage” in reruns. As usual, you have excellent taste.

    I’m a SFU fan, thanks to DVD. I will be watching season 3 next week and am excited about that. The current season is to be the last… not sure if you’d read about that?
