Well, everyone knows how good The Office and My Name is Earl are, but NBC has another pretty good comedy that nobody ever talks about. Scrubs has been around for a couple of years now and I think it's one of the better "lesser-known" shows on TV.

The acting and writing on it are great, but I think that the best part is that they're not afraid to take some chances and do different things. They've had an episode that featured "The Troubadour," played by Men at Work's Colin Hay, who performs an amazing version of "Overkill" throughout the show, and the last episode, which was full of The Wizard of Oz references. There are a lot of dramas on TV that try humor ... Scrubs is a comedy that manages to be serious and sensitive without being schmaltzy.

As if that wasn't enough, it stars everyone's favorite consultant, Bob Slydell.

Be sure to check it out!


P.S. - Regular Scrubs viewers know that Ted, Kelso's regularly-abused lawyer, occasionally shows up with his barbershop quartet. What you might not know is that they're really a band!

The Great Sopranos Marathon

So, I figure that I'm only about five years behind the times, but I'm embarking on my own personal journey with the wise guys of North Jersey.

See, I never had HBO, so I've always been on the sidelines when it came to The Sopranos. So, now that I've upgraded to Cablevision's Silver package and the 964 channels that come with it, I've decided to get "caught up" before the start of the new season next month.

How can I do this? The magic of Netflix. Not only do they carry movies, they also have television shows on DVD. So, I'm hard at work watching the first season.

Yes, this is WAY too much planning.

Back in the Deep Freeze

Well, I don't have a lot to say about Palm Beach. There were palm trees, there was a beach. You can see the Ritz on satellite on Google Local. I did manage to get on the beach for a grand total of about ten minutes, and the 72° was very nice.

But now I'm back in the Garden State and I'm just in time for temperatures to return to normal.

In wedding news, we're rapidly approaching the joy that is Pre-Cana. I'm sure I'll have a thing or two to say about that.

More soon, I promise.
