  1. I like Deutschland 83 which is on the Sundance channel. It’s like the Americans set in Germany complete with a retro soundtrack and less violence. The German general in charge of the base is skeptical of Reagan’s nukes. His son is into the Green party and his daughter is a soul singer.

    Honey Boo Boo was a good reality show. 🙂 This show where they taunt poor people with a briefcase of money is really scraping the bottom of the barrel.

  2. Oh, to have the second season of The Mao Tse-Tung Hour now that The Howard Beale Show is gone.
