I don't know if it's simply the cyclical nature of the DVD market or something more sinister at work, but there are more exciting TV shows coming out today than there are movies, including two of my favorite shows of all time. The first one is pictured at left. Can you guess which the other one is? (Hint: It's British, and it's about nerds.) Good luck!
My recent experience watching an episode of Secret Diary of a Call Girl in a room full of fairly new co-workers reminded me all too well of one of the worst experiences known to man -- sitting down to watch a movie with your parents that you think is benign, but that all of a sudden takes a turn for the filthy worst. Not living at home anymore, I don't even notice how sexual commercials, TV and movies are until I go home to visit my unbelievably prudish Catholic parents. Then I notice, and I notice big. By way of PSA for all of you with similarly uptight families, I've compiled a list of the movies I watched with my parents that I wish to god I hadn't.
