  • Dexter, Low Winter Sun, and maybe the VMAs. I mean NSYNC is a big draw, as is Macklemore & Ryan Lewis for me.

  • Breaking Bad, Devious Maids, & VMAs are on my list, but I’m DVRing the VMAs so I can just skip ahead to the good parts.

    • I’m thinking of doing the same, Christy. ‘NSYNC is the only thing I care about. Either using the DVR or hoping the performance will end up on YouTube.

  • “Step away, Ross and Monica.” THE ROUTINE!!!! Priceless. One of the funniest scenes ever, right up there with Sheldon in the ball crawl and Danny DeVito’s striptease!
