TV, Part 2

So I'm cooking and waiting for Rob to get home from work; that's the reason for all the tube action. Anyway, I'm watching BBC America, because nothing else appeals, and I find this--a little thing called Goodness Gracious Me. Awesome. And amazing that you can have a show like this in England circa 1998, yet I can't foresee anything like this in the U.S. in even ten years. Even Margaret Cho's show wasn't successful.

Have you ever watched The Kumars at No. 42? It's not exactly the same at this -- this seems like a 'The Kids in the Hall' meets one of those really funny Latino comedies that was so short-lived in the 90's. Very interesting. I love watching BBC imports... you never really know what you're going to run across.

I have--in fact, I found out that the same producer/writer was involved with both of those shows as well as the BBC original version of The Office (which is one of my favorites!). Kumars, though, was a little too goofy for me.

Yeah... the Kumars are a bit much...
