    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Not sure if anyone has mentioned this before, but has anyone seen How I Met Your Mother?

    That show is one of the funniest I've seen in a long time.

    That is enjoyable. The whole two-hour block with Mother, 2-1/2 Men, the geeks and the hot babe and the other one I can't remember the name of have sucked me into the television vortex more times than I care to reveal.

    It's not earth-shattering, but it's probably the funniest conventional sitcom (not 30 Rock, not the Office, not Scrubs, etc., which are different) I've seen in a while. And the characters are very likable.

    30 Rock might be one of the most unfunny shows on television. i've given it an honest shot and sat through a few episodes. chuckled a couple of times, and thats about it.

    I can understand how some people could not like it, but 30 Rock is by far one of the funniest shows on TV, if nothing else it is far more original than most television. Television comedy is garbage right now anyway, crap like Two and a Half Men gets huge ratings. 30 Rock is pretty referential and there are alot of hidden jokes, some people don't catch all of the jokes since you have to operate from a very similar frame of reference as the writers. Your entitled to your opinion and I don't want to give the "you must not get it then" explanation because that's a cop out but I'm curious what shows you think are funny that are currently on television (god help you if your response includes Family Guy).

    I know. One of the first things I did with my best friend when we got back from college last week was watch some AD. It's just too good.

    Its been mentioned but That Mitchell and Webb Look is great. If your a fan of The Office be sure to look up Peep Show...It beats The Office hands down.



    Oh and Count Duckula Season 1...

    I got introduced to Trailer Park Boys a few days ago by a friend, and I'm already halfway through the fourth season. I can't believe this show never made it to the US, so damn funny.

    Good call! Last time I was in Canada, that shoe had me LOL'ing. The big guy that always has a drink in his hand kills me.

    When I went to the movies on Sunday, previous to the movie, they ran a little preview of the upcoming season. That was the first time I've seen any footage of the show (I'd heard of it but never watched it), and that was enough for me.
