3/1     Watching Alias from the beginning on DVD, it's better than I recall.
        In particular Sidney kicks a lot more ass at the beginning of season
        one, she actually kills a few people in the first three episodes.
        I'm not entirely sure, but I don't think she kills people later in the
        series.  I suspect the network requested this to make Sidney more
        appealing to mass audiences.

        \_ No.  It isn't.  I just suffered through the first 2 seasons on DVD
           last week.  It almost drove me to drink.
        \_ Alias kind of sucked. Too much of a La Femme Nikita ripoff.
           \_ What's wrong with ripping of La Femme Nikita?  It was a good
              movie/show? -dans
              \_ Because it's a poorly done ripoff.  LFN rocked.  Alias sucks.
                 \_ Wooh, leverage that million-dollar vocabulary!
                    \_ Better to sound like Beavis and Butthead than an
        \_ I think she kills more people in later episodes...rather than
           just knocking out nameless, faceless guards, she actually KILLS
           people. Actually, i stopped watching alias about 5 weeks ago,
           but up to then i had seen every single episode and it was the
           only TV show i regularly watched.
           \- it's getting a little formulaic ... fly to high tech glass and
              steel bldg where a lot of people speak german and jump out of
              ceiling and fight 5 guards off and steal plans for "FOOtanium"
              device ... --psb
              \_ And wear ridiculous wig so she won't be recognised yet hang
                 out with lots of other agents who don't wear any 'disguises'.
              \_ Did you see the India eps? It was very amusing.

8/12    Bored, watching TV, and came across this synopsis nugget
        for a Three's Company episode:
        "[Janet's boss] Tina blackmails Jack into being at her
         beck and call; otherwise she'll fire Janet."
        The 70s were a weird time.
         \_ there is a _Friends_ episode that could be described zactly the same

6/21    "FIFA drops referee after dropped call" (
        "Belgian referee Frank De Bleeckere will prepare himself for the
        occasion by watching a DVD of the movie 'Gladiator' before taking
        center stage in a game that decides the USA.s destiny ..."
        I've never watched Gladiator.  What does a movie about Roman gladiators

6/9     Synchronized Macarana-esque dance after first 2010 World Cup goal.
        Oh no, the same disease that has plagued football here at home is now
        spreading to soccer abroad.
        \- You may be too young to remember ROGER MILLA and the DANCE OF THE
           CORNER. Did you see BISHOP D.TUTU dancing? That was pretty funny.

4/8     In addition to below, can someone recommend a movie or soap
        opera that describes the life of Kangxi Emperor? Netflix = useless.
        Mandarin is fine as long as there's subtitle. Thanks.
        \_ Not exactly a soap opera, but Kangxi Di Guo is a very good TV series
           featuring Chen Dao-Ming as Kangxi.  Whether or not it's accurate to
           history is another matter, though.
