it's not tv. it's crap.
sometimes i don't mind paying a gazillion dollars for hbo. like the times when the sopranos, or six feet under, or even sex and the city are on. and the times when they actually show a good movie on a saturday night when i have no plans whatsoever, and not enough money to afford to go across the street to the "real" movies.

but, last night wasn't any of those times.

last night it was cold, and nasty and i just didn't feel called to watch friends, followed by the four-hour will & grace extravaganza (obviously a thinly veiled very special episode. i don't do very special episodes. nothing good ever comes from a very special episode. unless it's a very special episode of everwood. that's completely different.)

so, i snuggle down on the couch with my keebler fudge stripe cookies, secure in my knowledge that i will find something fabulous on one of my ten channels of hbo (or, in the case of hbo latino, atche-bay-oh).

hbo east: inside the nfl - total crap.
hbo east 2: harry potter and the sorcerer's stone - saw this in a theater. with about 400 hundred screaming kids who already knew all the words to the movie, and recited all of them. out loud. in unison. it was like going to some bizarro pre-pubescent rocky horror picture show. only this wasn't fun because i was actually interested in hearing the actors. plus, i wasn't stoned or drunk, and none of the 400 kids was stoned or drunk either. doubly not fun. i fear that seeing it again would only cause flashbacks, so i'll take a pass.
hbo signature: cast away - saw this in a theater, just like every other person in the entire world. and maybe the next time i have a couple of days of my life to spend watching the longest movie ever made in which absolutely nothing happens, i'll watch it again. but, until then...no.
hbo family: the king and i - i would watch the original (because yul brenner was so fucking awesome). i would even watch the jodie foster version (because chow yun fat is so fucking awesome). but this is some generic animated piece of crap. no thanks.
hbo comedy: cool runnings - hbo says it's "[a]n absurd concept--based on a true story!" variety says it's "highly entertaining!" i say "it's craptastic!"
hbo zone: daybreak - starring ted mcginley...the patron saint of crap.
hbo latino: inside the nfl - total crap in spanish.

so...friends was really funny.
