"family" bad, "home" less bad....  
For some reason, I decided to vaguely watch a "Family Ties" marathon on saturday (I say "vaguely" because my concentration was mostly on playing World of Warcraft). Man, I remembered that show as being much better than it actually was. Wooden acting, lackluster writing. Hopefully it's just that they just picked some less than excellent episodes for the marathon.

Still, I'll choose to remember the episode where Alex was addicted to speed as being great regardless of whether it actually was.

Also, the girl and I saw "Prairie Home Companion." As a fan of the radio show, I found it fairly compelling, but I can't imagine what someone who'd never seen the show would make of it.

Listening to: Camper Van Beethoven - "My Path Belated"

A few years back there was a Family Ties marathon that played while my roommates and I were snowed in (fairly major blizzard). The first night of the snow in was when we were watching. We caught the one where Tom Hanks shows up as an alcoholic uncle. Terrible stuff-the acting was bad, and the script couldn't decide whether Tom's character should be serious or played for laughs. The rest of the weekend whenever one of us was drunk we would make references to the episode, or simply say "tonight, on a very special episode"....
