    I'm liking The Rookie also, mainly for Fillion (who, as he's gotten older, has really started to resemble my best friend IRL who also happens to work in law enforcement. :chris:).

    I'd still rather see it on a cable channel, though. It comes across as a bit too Disney-fied (literally, considering the network) for me at times and I'd like to see it a little more raw and with better action sequences. The CGI gunfights are cheesy as hell. :lol:

    Addressing Hall & Oates - how can such great talents be in such hackneyed & weak videos?

    MTV once picked that as the greatest video of all time. This was in the late '80s. Granted, music videos were in their infancy at this time, but holy shit were there much better videos to choose from.

    Yes, late 80s. It was their "all time greatest countdown." In the early days of music videos, I could see it being up there, since there were so few videos, but by the late 80s, there were a shit ton of better ones.
