By the way, I did not say it was not funny, just not in the same way as the original. Some of the same scenes were replicated in the US version, but they are so overplayed that it ruined it for me. That being said, I still find it funny. But as a comedy show, not as a "mockumentary"(which it was intended).

And I want to add that a lot of the US animation series are pure comedic gold!

Has the wire been mentioned? (sorry did not want to go through 19 pages)

Great show.

UK office was great, so was Extras. Have not seen the US version so I can't really comment on which I like better.

The Wire

@Twiddle

Looks like 3 other people agree with you. And I will throw in my vote as well to make it 4. I think it was one of the best dramas EVAR produced for television!

Rome was also really good. I stopped watching game of thrones after the 3rd one b/c it was brutally cruel w/o the redeeming qualities of a Rome , The Wire and Deadwood. ......

It all comes down to personal taste. I think Steve Carell has one the best satirical comedic timing and delivery I've ever seen, and I think Ricky Jervais is just plain silly. I'm sure you probably think the opposite, and I'm sure plenty of other people fall in both camps...different personal tastes.

Disney isn't what it used to be...

The episode was:

Who did it to Trina? from the series Victorious.

I thought it was funny actually. Maybe I chose the wrong clip.

Psych has me laughing out loud. Sometimes in embarrassment though.

re: Big Mike's post about children's TV.

It seems like the innocence is lost in favor of commercialism driven subject not overseen by today's too busy surviving to care, corrupting culture. Compare to watching kids shows in the 70's and 80's. You don't see shows anymore like "Battleship Yamato", "Battle for the Planets" and "Ark II". Even the original Transformers has been bastardized to an Foxx eye-candy Bayformers trash.

It just drives me nuts when I keep hearing "save the children" by teacher unions and the useless Dept. of Education while more taxpayer dollars are wasted. True, the U.S. still has the best education in the world, but that's only in the graduate schools of universities which are mostly attended by foreign nationals now anyways. While undergraduate GEd and grade k-12 are more than half filled with crap totally useless to students but instead funding the "save the children" "education" machine.

I don't really watch TV anymore. Mostly listen to political/financial talk radio/video. I'll catch up on Star Wars Clone Wars downloads sometimes which seemed more like an old fashioned cartoon,... until Lucas started having wide eyed in pain, characters gratuitously lightsaber impaled from behind like sticking his middle finger to us Gen X'rs, "haha, caught you GenX'rs still watching!".

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
