You obviously haven't found...
That's some catch, that Catch-22.

Are you kidding? The features are phenomenal.  It comes with the stageplay it was based on.

Went to a couple of libraries and a Hollywood Video.  It's finals week and I get out of school at 12 PM every day.  Most of the tests should be pretty easy so I'm not worrying very much.  And now the films:














Smiles of a Summer Night and Freaks are on VHS.  Ararat and Blade Runner are really scratched up, which worries me.  The only one of these I've seen before is Blade Runner.

Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Yesterday's conversation with my girlfriend:

gf: I love it!
me: :puke-sound:
gf: you never like anything
me: of course, just take a look at that boxset [points to sk boxset]
gf:  :yabbse-rolleyes:
me: it's sex and the city in a hospital
gf: it's not
me: it has the annoying worthless narration and tries to be too cute
gf: not every show is Six Feet Under, but whatever, 20 more episodes to come
me:  :yabbse-angry: [wonders who at xixax would be with him]

Grey's Anatomy really is a terrible overmelodramaticsoap opera and not in a good way. Even Sex in the city has better writing than this show. The negative about this, is that this show may manipulate the weak into watching another episode. But your gf is right, not every show can be six feet under, thank god. That show stands on it's own.
The Beatles know Jesus Christ has returned to Earth and is in Los Angeles.
