Cash & the Star Wars fan film stuff was great. When I heard this had to do with Melanie...I wasn't too keen on the ep...but it was pretty good. Loving this show actually.

That episode was a mess. Lot of comic talent being wasted here.
Maybe I'm feeling nostalgic since I used to make my own Star Wars films as a kid, but I thought it was the funniest episode since the pilot.

Dutch not being a douchebag also raises questions about what Cam thinks he's doing. He's supposed to be the lead character and we're supposed to sympathize with him, but chasing another guy's girlfriend is kosher only if she's nice and he's a douchebag. Yet here we have a situation that is closer to being the reverse.

i wonder if you're biased because of TrekBBS threads ongoing joke of Clark being a d-bag, so the others are automatically not on Smallville, and that resonates in other roles (also factoring in Rosenbaum being a great, if not best, Lex Luthor)

Since I have no idea what you're talking about, that would be a no.

Re: Breaking In - New FOX Comedy - Christian Slater, Bret Harrison

Tonight's episode was full of geek awesome! We get Christian saying "we have a broken arrow!", Dutch picking up an "S" Shield t-shirt and using it and his allergy to pull-off a Sloth impression. A ninja turtle "ninja's" the movie. Cash's bedroom. Real properties seen at the Con. I think this show is moving into first place for my sitcom allotment.

I like that the geek jokes so far have gotten the details right. It's a nice contrast to big bang theory where it feels like the writers don't actually know the references they are using.

Such a fun show. Tonight was great. Dutch(Michael Rosenbaum) in the Superman shirt was awesome. The show gets better with each ep.

Tonight's episode was the first I've seen of this and I loved it...laughed at the "Broken Arrow" reference made by Christian Slater's character.

Turning the peanut allergy into Sloth was genius. Didn't see that coming.

Also, did Rosenbaum just wear the Superman S before Welling did?

And remember that Sloth wore the "S" as well in Goonies. So they got a double in-joke out of the shirt.

I thought this was funny and I've never even seen Goonies. (...peanuts?)

I read somewhere that Oz has a "five year plan" for his company, something to do with world domination. If the writing would get focused on going somewhere, this could evolve into a worthwhile show.

That sounds more like a rub at other shows that purported to have "five year plans".

With the ratings, this show doesn't even a need a one-year plan.
