  1. Happy Anniversary! Sorry Amrie, my gift must have got lost in the mail. πŸ™‚

    I know it’s a month later–wasn’t even aware of that Dawson’s Creek complete series re-release. That’s super cheap–I still have the shelf-filling original single-season sets. I wish they offered slim packaging upgrades for people like Amrie and I who buy loads of TV-on-DVD. Speaking of that, I completely understand Amrie’s need to complete a series on the shelf!

    Happy to have Psych, The League and Sanctuary back. Enjoyed Awkward and The Closer season finales, but it’s been so long since I watched them.

    I wasn’t really a fan of Family Matters, but thought that Stefan Urquelle was a genius move that allowed Jaleel to get away from that annoying role (if only for a few minutes)! Speaking of this show (Family Matters was a Perfect Strangers spin-off?!), did you see that the dad is now on Hart of Dixie?!

    Initially I liked Craig on Top Chef, but his incompetency was too much to handle and was glad to see him go. Thought, I do still like mini Woody Allen (Cochran) on Survivor.

  2. Hey! I listen to all the episodes. Don’t forget about me. I don’t comment on here though, just twitter. πŸ˜‰

    Since this episode was recorded so long ago, I’d like to know if any of you bought the Dawson’s Creek re-release. I saw it at Costco for cheaaap and was thinking off buying it. I don’t have any of the seasons and the idea of it being packaged so well makes me want it on my shelf.

  3. Weren’t the Emmy’s on like, a million weeks ago?
    Sorry about the lack of present. I honestly didn’t know your anniversary was coming up! Plus, I suck at presents. But I am going to start crafting soon so maybe I will make you something flashy and inappropriate.
    And HBC, if you don’t comment how are the going to know you listen! (twitter doesn’t count!)
    Now I need to listed to the next 50 minutes of this podcast! I will be back later!

  4. I love Awkward. I miss Awkward. And I loved the 16 Candles talk. I totally saw it in the theater as I did all John Hughes movies. Yes, I am that old.
    So who watched the New Girl last night and thought of Amrie when Jess could not say “penis”?
    Also, did anyone else thing Rae was going to talk about Stefon from SNL and not Stefan from TVD? Just me?
    I miss you guys. Post more podcasts!
