    I did not get a chance to watch Nurse Jackei this weekend so it looks like a Showtime night for me. And I guess I will have to watch Dave just for a clip of the Time Traveller’s Wife.

    Eric Bana is probably on promoting Funny People. But he is a definite must-watch guest for me :]

    I want to see Funny People too. I didnt’ realize he was in that too. Busy guy!

    I’m watching Weeds, which I am enjoying immensely, however I will say that I want the Mexican mafia to just GO AWAY at this point. I want it to get back to the core, with Nancy, Silas, Shane, Doug, Andy, Celia, Dean and Isabelle. I know it’s hard to go back to that given where Nancy is now, but it’s Weeds! They always come up with a nice tidy way to get Nancy out of a jam. It may not be realistic, but at least it moves the story along. Oh, and any time they want to bring Heylia and Conrad back, I’m all for it!
