Well, fooey.

I have become a recent fan of the TV series Sports Night. This is a shame, since it isn't actually on the air anymore. (When the series was actually on the air, I foolishly thought it was about sports, so I didn't watch it.) However, the entire series (both seasons, that is) has been released on DVD, and I gave in last night and picked it up. I took it to bed with me, since I don't actually go to sleep when I go to bed these days, and figured I'd start watching it while waiting to pass out.

It crashes my Apex.

Foodle. It happened twice, at the same spot, and then I fast-forwarded past that spot, and it happened again. The Apex is, however, a known-finicky system, and I have a fairly early model, so I'm going to play it in the living room DVD player today and hope for better results.

For some reason, something in my psyche poked me last night while I was enterting receipts into Quicken, and I kept the receipt from Best Buy, so if it does end up being a more general problem, I can return it. But I really hope I don't have to.

Oh yeah, and Josh Charles, one of the sportscasters on the show, always looked oddly familiar to me, but I never got around to querying IMDB about him. Now I remember where I know him from. He was Knox Overstreet in Dead Poets Society. Huh.

I'm sure you all care. :)
It's still on COmedy Central almost daily (albeit at 3:30am)
I do. I'm a huge Sports Night fan. :) Damn Comedy Central for getting me hooked.

But what is up with the laugh track? I know I saw a couple of eps on CC that had one, and it was incredibly distracting.
Okay ... so I'm late...
Catching up on LJ reading.

Note that Josh Charles looked "oddly familiar" to me too. Probably because I went to camp with him.

Actually, in Sports Night's first season, it came on right after Spin City, which, at the time, had Alexander Gaberman or Alexander Chapman or whatever he was known as at the time. Played James. I knew him from camp as well (although as "Sandy Gaberman"). He also grew up in the town next door and we had the same voice teacher for a small amount of time and he worked at Caldor for a bit in my town.

Anyway - I used to call that the "Stagedoor Manor Hour" (Stagedoor being where I went to camp).
