Does This Photo Mean Scoot McNairy Is Playing The Flash in Batman v Superman? | Ranking the 7 Best Characters on Television

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • John W

    You're right Heather Locklear is the living embodiment of the 90s.

  • Adrienne Marie

    Paget Brewster is no longer on Criminal Minds, btw.

  • The OC didn't premiere until 2003.

  • luckypete

    So does that mean Boss is no longer around? I saw it came on Netflix and I was going to enjoy a semi-long life with a mean, corrupt Kelsey Grammer, but alas.

  • jM

    Wow, TV Land has so many shows I'm never going to watch.

  • periwinkled

    Am I the only one who remembers Arjay Smith on The Journey of Allen Strange? Or remembers The Journey of Allen Strange at all? It was on the tail end of that Alex Mack set of weird sci-fi Nick snows.

  • laylaness

    I didn't even recognize Ethan Suplee.

  • janetfaust

    Did "Perception" get any better? I tried to watch a few episodes of the first season and it just couldn't hold my attention.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I really enjoyed Just Shoot Me. I liked the clever magazine titles. I like San Giacomo's character and how they weren't afraid to make her smart and awkward and poke fun at her earnestness - she did not ultimately have any higher ground than the other characters. I found it so refreshing.

    ETA: disqus update WHY. Why are you feeding me with news of every upvote? There's a reason I'm not on Facebook; I don't need to know every time someone likes my opinion. It feeds my ego in a rather unhealthy way (on something fairly pointless, to boot)

  • Dulce et Banana

    I know. The little grey thing turned red with "9+" in it and I almost had a heart-attack thinking "OK, what the heck did I say that p*ssed off everyone!"

  • Sara_Tonin00

    ha, yes, that was exactly my reaction.

  • Mrs. Julien

    It's like, how much more Pajiba could this be? And the answer is none. None more Pajiba.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Joshua Jackson's (RIP) not in any of them.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Damn it, pig, must you stick pins in my lovingly crafted quips? No, no it's fine. It's not going to affect my performance, don't worry about that. I just hate it. It really, it does disturb me, but I'll rise above it. I'm a professional.

  • zeke_the_pig

    My grandma used to tell tales of a cheeky cockney pin-sticking pig who used to roam the highways and byways of Victorian London, and who loved nothing more than to find a nice lady's quip and stick it full of pins. Which is odd, considering she was from Prague. But still, what chance did I have in life? And more pertinently: what chance did your quips?

  • Mrs. Julien

    I'm glad you're back. I missed you even if you are an unholy opposable-thumbed pin sticking pig.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Dammit I love that cartoon!

    But yes I do apologise for the absence: been a rather hectic life of late with no laptops; no stable, permanent residences; mad holidays; mad times at work; mad times with the band; some family drama, etc. etc. etc. I've tried to dive into Pajiba whenever I could but now some of those things appear to have stabilised somewhat let's see if we can make a right pigsty out of this place again.

  • Salasalu

    No cast pictures with the actors you're referencing?

  • Shouldn't Wendie Malick's TV credit be "Just Shoot Me"?

  • BWeaves

    Or "Dream On."

  • zeke_the_pig

    Man, Bad Boys III looks like it's gonna be awesome.
