  6. Funny how Carlton Cuse always gets tagged with the Lost association when, to me, he'll always be the man behind The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. :)

  7. I love the premise of Wild Oats. I could sure use an accidental check like that--although I have a feeling someone would come looking for it eventually...

  13. I loved Sex in the City, but I can not stand to see Sara Jessica Parker in anything else. She is so one dimensional it seems. I don't find her a particularly good actress.

    The Riot Club sounds great!

    1. and her character in SEX AND THE CITY was rather horrible.... a very bad person she was.... Superficial, selfobsessed, overly analytical, cynical, adulteress...

      Delete
    2. So true! I could never figure out why she was so beloved on the show.

      Delete
    3. me neither, and so many ladies take her for their role model even though most of the men hate that kind of a woman.....

  14. Wild oats? How wild? Jessica and Jessica... well, hello.

    3. Lucky you! Here in my country you cannot retire without 40 years of working experience of before you're 67 years old. And I have only 2,5 of official working experience :(

  15. The Riot Club almost reminds me of Skulls in some ways, but with less secret society. Loved that movie.
