Note: Sorry if you get the daily update email yesterday, as it didn’t go out. Things were set to post automatically on the blog, which they did, but the RSS feed apparently didn’t get updated at Feedburner before the scheduled time to send the email, so when the system set out to send yesterday morning’s email, it didn’t see there was anything new posted to send out.

Have you been watching Being Erica? If so, how has the second season been? I enjoyed the first season, but haven’t seen any of the second season yet.
Looking forward to the second season of Inbetweeners–I had bought the DVD of series 1 from Amazon UK way back and really enjoyed it. Held off buying the UK series 2 DVD after I saw a US DVD release of series 1 and that it was coming to BBCA.

Kyle, I have been watching the second season of Being Erica and I am enjoying it about as much as I did season one, which was quite a lot.

The Inbetweeners has been surprisingly good and also shows how different British TV can be from TV here in the U.S. I working on adding “brilliant” and “fit” into my vocabulary, but it just doesn’t sound right with out the accent.

Brilliant–I know what you mean–“She’s fit” sounds classier than “She’s hot”–especially if you have the British accent :)

Will need to add Being Erica to the pile of things to catch up on. Was making good progress (finished Buffy S6, Angel S3 two weeks ago) but then a cold for the past two weeks has found me primarily watching mindless marathons of Bravo reality shows. Need to get back to some thinking TV :)

Is the The Inbetweeners worth the time on a busy dvr?

5 Jason the TVaholic February 25, 2010 at 6:16 am

Kyle, Still have seven episodes of both Buffy S.6 and Angel S.3 before I finish them.

sprspndx, Yes, The Inbetweeners is worth checking out, as it won’t take up much space on the DVR. I’ve been watching them via Comcast On Demand, as many BBC America shows are available the day after they air.

6 sprspndx February 25, 2010 at 9:46 am

Would I have to watch season 1 first, or am I good to go to start now?

7 Jason the TVaholic February 26, 2010 at 4:05 am

sprspndx, I would say that you don’t need to, but it would be better if you did. Since it’s a comedy, it’ll still be funny, but might be better if you’ve seen how these four became friends.
