I remember from an episode of QI that corduroy comes from the French "cord du roi" or something like that, I don't know I don't speak French. Fabric of the King. So it was so luxurious and expensive only the King (which King? who knows?) could wear it. Which is kind of hilarious.

WHOA WHOA WHOA. 'Indian Princesses' is defunct now?! Not that I am sad, because wow why did that even exist (most of my friends don't believe me when I tell them about how I was an Indian Princess god even typing it is ridiculous) but you just blew my mind.

Um, the comedy tour with Mick Jagger playing Denny Cumberbatch? Sounds like the SNL crew has been watching Sherlock!! Amazing.

Similarly Cora is Lady Grantham. Also you can call Old Lady Meany "The Dowager Countess". And the light haired maid Anna. And the Nobody Heir "OMG MATTHEW". And Mary is the best. I love/identify with her so much. See below re: Lady Asshole Genre. (To be fair to Kelly though, I vaguely remember being taken aback by her bitchiness in the first episode.)

I was waiting for him to do the creepy Herman Cain smile, waiting so desperately that I kept shouting at my computer: "SMILE! DO THE SMILE! DO IT! YESSSSSSSSS..." I've never been so excited by a creepy smile. (- my tombstone)

Not the Dowager Countess, like they call her in the show? (SORRY! I hate myself right now enough for the both of us.)

November 3, 2011 on Downton Abbey To Get A Third Season
I am inclined to give 13 a break because it's still written and directed by Géla Babluani (who did the original) -- probably just victim to Hollywood Trailer-itis (like say implying Sam Riley isn't the main character). But if anyone out there hasn't seen (13) Tzameti, get on Netflix right now and watch it and try not to have a heart attack from a good way.

The only way Sleep No More could have been improved was with more Jon Hamm cardboard cutouts everywhere.

For me it was more of a lovely tribute to the Office UK. Either way it was amazing. I was so surprised at how much my heart kind of broke when their cars missed each other in the Dunder Mifflin parking lot.

It can seem like (mostly) all actors from around the world can nail the American accent easily, but those are just mostly the ones that get cast in big Hollywood movies. You want to hear bad American accents? Watch British television. Or, I'm assuming, any other regional non-American television or smaller-budget films in which Americans are depicted. You'll feel a lot better. So many bad, strange, and confusing American accents that stomp from the Mississippi to New England to the Midwest in one sentence. It always makes me proud to be an American. (USA! USA! USA!)

Thank god Afterburner is Bullseye, I almost got really really upset at the prospect of Tomboy without Bullseye. THAT is going to be the jam of the year.

If it's anything like the original episode (which ranges from hilarious/ridiculous to absolutely heartbreaking), Chris is the kind of guy who will just take any pill he finds when he wants to party, and he ends up taking a few "Erectagra" (if I remember correctly) one night, getting absolutely wasted, and waking up in the morning with a boner that lasts...forever. And he gets violently kicked out of his own (wrecked, empty house by a hobo (while naked), so he has to run down the street, through Bristol, to his college (high school) to find some clothes. And it's sad, and pathetic, even moreso because this is a 16-year-old kid who idolizes his dead brother and has just been abandoned by his single mother and while I will not touch the US version with a ten-foot pole, I can only imagine that they fucked up this episode to make it some sort of hilarious romp.

Anyone else see this in NY Mag? "Hating Gwyneth became a sport we could all enjoy: Her videos are parodied on Funny or Die, and Videogum regularly catalogues her doings alongside a photo of the actress superimposed with the words 'I am the worst.'" It was like an early Christmas!

The Metreon is so much nicer than the Regal Union Sq. Aside from all Gabe mentioned, the Regal is actually rat-ridden. As in, I go there to see a movie, and as a plus I see at least one rat running in the aisle every time. Thanks, $13.50 plus fandango fees!
