On the telly

Did anyone else who watched the Tommy Lee Show think that the show was not so much an "embarassment to a serious academic institution," but just boring? I did enjoy watching my friend Matt, though.
In addition to the Tommy Lee show, I watched all of the first season of The Office. I thought that it was absolutely hilarious--sort of a cross between Office Space and Christopher Guest mockumentaries. I think its success proved, though, what I have been saying for a long time about the problem with many zany comedies: the key to success is to have one (or, at the most, two) flamboyant characters, with the rest being quite normal. When everyone is silly, the movie/show ends up just being cheesy.


I didn't think "Tommy Lee Goes to College" was boring so much as just ridiculous. I was glad to see that UNL wasn't shown in a negative way, and it was fun to recognize 90% of the drumline from hanging out at Westbrook for the last 4 years.

I thought it was hilarious. Though as my sister said, "aww no one is good-looking. We have hot people too!"

No one good-looking? But they had the hot tutor!
