Yikes, day-one patch to watch Blu-ray/DVD's? Shouldn't that be part of the system's firmware core? What next, day-one patch to use the controllers? I'm not surprised at a day-one patch, but I am surprised at a couple of features requiring it. Hopefully, by the time I pick one up next year, these stumbling blocks will have been fixed (and a whole new set will be in play).

Yes, I often enjoy a sandwich while masturbating.
Cowboy Bebop is in the lead? FUCK....
I vote for Curb
All the anime-likers are obviously going to vote for it. The votes of the non-anime people are split between the rest of the shows. I only ever checked out the first 2 or 3 episodes of Cowboy Bebop, but it didn't strike me as something that was so good that it transcends the genre. It's slightly above average for anime, though that is arguably damning with faint praise.
I love anime and it is what I primarily watch over all other shows, but I voted for Curb Your Enthusiasm because (A) it's funny, (B) this is Giant Bomb and its acceptance of anime has never been high and (C) sometimes I worry that people might forget it since other more popular shows have come along. I don't feel that any show has to transcend the genre in order to be worth watching. It just needs to be entertaining to the viewer for an hour or so. That goes for anime or HBO comedies.
Horror themed internet pornography. Count Fap-ula has arrived.
Do I need an excuse to ogle half-naked girls in costumes? I mean, that candy binge thing. Yes, that is what I meant to reply.
Well, I'm old so I'm going to go ahead and say The Beatles. My favorite albums are The White Album, Abby Road, Rubber Soul and Revolver. A Hard Day's Night is one of my all-time favorite movies. Of course, I like other classic rock bands such as the Stones, Cream, The Who, Santana and Jimi Hendrix. As I said I am old and I have a hard time classifying 80's music as "classic". That was stuff I listened to while in high school. Bon Jovi and Def Leppard just don't rate along side Neil Young or Led Zeppelin, but that isn't to say I don't like their music from that decade. I'm a big Bruce Springsteen fan and while I could slot Greetings From Asbury Park on a "classic rock" album list, I'd have trouble allowing Born in the USA in, as well.
Oh and my favorite album of all-time is The Allman Brothers Live at Fillmore East (1971). That's some classic rock.
I work at a branch office of our company and it takes me about 15 minutes to get to work by car each day. I'm good with that. If I had to work at the corporate office, I'd be pulling an 80 mile round trip, too. Let's see, 80 miles per day, 5 days per week, 52 weeks per year...that's about 20,000 miles per year on your car. You'd have to replace your vehicle every 4 years or so. I guess if you lease it wouldn't be too bad. I can't fathom what Jeff pays for gas every month.
Space: Above and Beyond. The first (and only) season started off with its fair share of occasional awkwardness, but by the time they got to the last leg of the season the writers and actors were really hitting their stride and the quality was taking a sharp turn upward.
This. Certainly a show ahead of its time. Too expensive and unexceptional ratings led to an early demise. What's worse is that it ended on a cliffhanger. I know everyone laments Firefly, but for me, Space Above and Beyond will always be the best show never given its proper due.
Wonderfalls was excellent, too. I loved its quirky charm but, like a lot of FOX shows, it got canned way too early.
One I'll mention which I don't think has, and it might be good for many of us that it did get axed is Richard Dean Anderson's Legend. It was similar to The Adventures of Brisco County Jr, so that probably contributed to its cancellation. I really enjoyed the interplay between Anderson and John DeLance. There haven't been too many western-comedies on TV and for a brief time, there were two. Of course, since it was canned, it led Anderson to Stargate SG1.
