Well, it's true that a lot of people would see cartoons, even mature one's like family guy and south park, as mindless entertainment. I have to disagree. When the Simpsons were in their prime, there were layers of comedy, not just a laugh machine and quick one liners.......although the one liners works for Family Guy. South park as well has important and intelligent messages. Eh, like I said, what ever works for people. I like most of those programs also. Sometimes Robot Chicken is ehhhh, but sometimes it is freaking hilarious.

That show is so odd, because part of it is just for the kids, but part of it HAS to be for the adults. The humor on that show is NOT just for children.

What about you CJ?

I guess I am a rarity. I enjoy just about every movie or TV program that I watch. It all depends on what I read into them. I know within a minute or so whether I will watch it or not. What I enjoy most about them is looking for bloopers or oddities. In one show for instance a suspect who has his hands handcuffed behind his back, jumps out a window to his death. When the camera shows him on the ground he is laying face down with both arms stetched above his head, no handcuffs. Saying this , let's have some fun here. Can anyone recall strange incidents or bloopers they have seen in shows? If so we would, or rather I would love to read about them.

You lost me on the jumping to death thing............honestly, I don't get it, was it magic?

"Worlds Dumbest" is the show for you.

Let's see, how about.....the criminal that went to rob a bank, pulled the door to get in, the alarm goes off, and he pulls and pulls the door to get back out. He tries for about ten minutes until a customer unknowing to what is going on in the bank goes pulls the door from the outside to get in, and then he understands what he was doing wrong.

Yes, yes it can.

I would record that show and watch it SPECIFICALLY when I was depressed. Very good suggestion and option (because of my bias for it :-)

Of course I would put Casino on that list!!!!!!  Great movie - love DeNiro in anything that he does.  So great.. :)  p.s. also A Bronx Tale, L.A. Confidential, heck, even Meet the Parents (but definitely NOT any of the sequels to this movie - UGH) - I'm a HUGE DeNiro fan. :)  Also a huge Pacino fan - Dog Day Afternoon, Scarface, ..And Justice for All, Devil's Advocate.  All favorites of mine.  Haven't seen "Your don't know Jack" yet from HBO but will soon.

Oops - threw in L.A. Confidential although not a DeNiro film - but I love Kevin Spacey too.  At least with most of his movies (forget about KPax though - seriously BAD movie) :)

Pacino was in "carlito's way", but I didn't watch part two........pud or p diddy or puffy d or artist formerly known as P didn't seem to great in the movie from parts I saw........

Kevin Spacey is good, I like "The negotioator", and common, "The usual suspects" great movie.
