    That win for him was more of a lifetime achievement award or something. I mean, he's made much stronger films, so it was strange to see that be the one where he finally won the award. 2006 not being a particularly strong year played a big part in it, though.

    In any case, as we've talked about before, the Oscars is one huge misguided circle jerk. So, yeah, there's that.

    Fair point but I'd still give it to Kevin because Joss still makes good movies.

    We're the only smart people so only we get to decide which movies were good and we're only picking the 'smart' movies.

    Do I irk you?

    I think Bear likes sitcoms because they are just kind of a release from real life in a humorous way... I don't know if it's a loyalty thing. I still like how I met your mother, I mean I would rather watch new episodes of ben and kate but HIMYM will do.

    I fail to see

    a) how they are a release and
    b) how they are "humorous"


    I guess I'm just not a "sitcom" kind of guy for what Hollywood is currently putting out, but I will admit to being a fan of some of the older sitcoms... Not because everything was "better back in the day" but because the writing seemed to be more interesting and you didn't need to look for the funny parts; they just came naturally.

NO! YOU'RE Marshall!!!") for episode marathons and discuss at length overly derived meaning from each episode and put so much energy into understanding Ted Mosby.

    Which is fine, if you have nothing else going on.
    Also, with some people, more of what they've come to love is essentially enough. It's like, well, one piece of pizza is good, so surely two pieces must be better. As long as the formula is still in place and the characters they like are still there, everything is all gravy. It's more about comfort than it is art. They don't care about worthwhile story arcs and organic character development. They just want to see retreads of the things that made them laugh in previous episodes. The shows become like old friends that they can depend on to be there, forever unchanging.
