    Life on Mars could be interesting. Is it a comedy sprinkled show? Seems like there could be some situational humor in that.


    Do we really need more Tyra and Ashton?

    Why don't they boot the dancing crap and just give us a full season of Scrubs?



    What ever happened to truth, justice and the American Way?

    Couldn't agree more!


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    I enjoyed the original BBC version of Life on Mars but since I enjoyed the original I wonder if I'll like the Americanization of it?

    I watch Boston Legal. That show is a riot. Other than that, only football.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.
