time to move on.

on monday i saw the newest jim jarmusch film, "broken flowers". it was pretty good. bill murray is the man, and anything he does will always be ok with me.

however, i was a little disheartened by the film as well. this movie basically marks the fourth straight starring role in which murray has played the same character. it's a fantastic schtick, and we're all sorry he didn't get the oscar nod he so dearly wanted, but it's time to move on. bill, for the sake of all who love your work, let your next film take you in another direction.

agreed, ms. parson and I saw that movie a couple months back in detroit, and she had the exact same comment as we left the theater. I was too hung up on the nudity to comment as to the content of the movie.
ps. i seem to remember an endorsement for "freaks and geeks" from you mr. huevos and i have just started renting the dvd's.
maybe the best television show ever. good call

Yes! Freaks and Geeks is great. I recently watched the first disc of the Undeclared show. It's pretty damn funny, as well, and by the same people.

Haven't seen Broken Flowers, yet...

you are correct, ghostface: freaks and geeks is among the best shows ever. it is also the best depiction of high school ever to grace the small screen (apologies to laguna beach and happy days).

Can someone besides Sauce vouche for Undeclared? It's in my Netflix queue, but I need a second opinion.

i watched a couple episodes of undeclared when it was on the air. though it's no freaks and geeks, it's definitely quality.
