ITS Monty Python's Flying Circus - the only series to make me laugh so hard I actually fell out of bed, twice. One was the Upper Class Twit of the Year.
Rex the Runt - Early claymation from Aardman, the Wallace and Gromit people. The first episode ends in an endless recursion of universe within universe after the three dogs attempt to fix their pet dog's Random Pavarotti Disease.
Band of Brothers - Perhaps the best thing ever on men in combat.
I've never seen The Wire.
Thought the Firefly movie was better than the series.
Our reason is quite satisfied, in 999 cases out of every 1000 of us, if we can find a few arguments that will do to recite in case our credulity is criticized by someone else. Our faith is faith in someone else's faith, and in the greatest matters this is most the case.
- William James, from The Will to Believe, a guest lecture at Yale University in 1897
