You gotta shock the monkey...
But I won't heed the battle call...

Don't cry for me, Argentina...

Just a brief one for you, today. Sorry if you were expecting something grandiose, but c'est la vie.

This exchange happened this morning as Katie and I lay in bed watching Today Show reports on South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford:

Katie: Are you going to leave me and head for Argentina?

Me: No.
       ...Maybe Brazil.

You gotta be pretty secure in your relationship to have a convo like that one. ;-)

I love you, hon. (I fully expect her to smack me when she gets home tonight)

I saw this question linked on the Typepad homepage and thought it was pretty cool. If you want to answer on the page linked below, go for it, but I'd like to hear it in the comments here as well (if they're working today; I've heard of some people having issues). Here's the question:

If you could bring back a canceled TV series, which would you choose?

OMG. I think this is how I found you initially... I don't even have to think about it: "Quantum Leap!"

Kevin Spencer

This one's easy. Firefly. In. A. Heartbeat.


That's right! Nice choice.


Another good choice!


Quantum Leap is a good one. I think I'd like to have Family Ties back. Or! Party of Five.


LOL. I'm pretty sure she'll laugh and not slap you. :)


Party of Five... interesting choice. Not in a bad way at all. Just never expected that one. Cool.


No slaps thus far!


Nice one, sounds like my conversations with my husband.

I would bring back My So-called Life, in a heartbeat.

"Silent" Bob "Pappy"

Hmmm...I am thinking I would want The Six Million Dollar Man. I like cheesy sound effects. Or maybe Gigglesnort Hotel...or Banana said only one didn't you.


AND if she slapped you... you'd like it AND she'd have to do it all the time! ! !

I'd pick Seinfeld.... or the Muppets...


I forgot how much I missed that show.


Gigglesnort what?


My fear is that I'd enjoy it too.

"Silent" Bob "Pappy"

Hotel...BJ and the Dirty Dragon...The Lemon Drop Kid...::sigh:: I am feeling old.

I don't need the muppets to come back...I just can do the scripts and picture it in my mind. WOW...I REALLY need to get out more.


Yeah you do.


Late to the party as usual! Recently canceled, I think I'd pick either Eli Stone, or Women's Murder Club. One from a while ago, The Adventures of Brisco County Junior.

I know, I'm strange.


Ah Brisco County Junior! Nothing strange about that at all. I loved that show! And anything with Bruce Campbell is cool by association.


I've heard the Brazilian women look just like golden godesses and don't need money or anything like that.

Wait... isn't Brazil a long ways from Chicago? I'd stick with Katie. Besides, she's a good cook and sounds like a really cool woman.


Oh I'm not going anywhere.

Gary LaPointe

Roswell or Sports Night. Both were canceled way too quickly.

PS - When do we leave for Brazil?


Sports Night is one I've been meaning to check out on DVD.

Brazil? Are you nuts? Ha ha, get it? Brazil Nuts?


Hmmm...this is tough to answer. I think of Seinfeld or Cheers, but only from their hey day and not when they were petering out. As far as series that got canceled after just a season or two, I would've liked to have seen more of Rome on HBO.


I'm pretty sure the Captain and I have had almost the exact same conversation.


I heard good things about Rome.


I'm curious, will the Captain ever be promoted or would a trip to Brazil stunt his upward momentum?
