On Ten Notable Comedies in the Public Domain

"I just love the title and that it involves cannibals." I thought at first you said "cannabis", but I guess cannibailsim is cool too.

On The Lost Roles of Gilda Radner

I'm very curious as to how Gilda as Alex Forrest would have gone. There's a long history of comedians playing psychos and villains, and sometimes it works out pretty well. Alan Arkin in "Wait Until Dark" is a classic example.

On Happy Endings Recap: "You Snooze, You Bruise"

Actually I'm pretty sure it's Dave who had the "definition of fascism" line.

On Casey Wilson on Doing a Birthday Suit Birthday Dance With Whitney Cummings

Sounds like a fun party. The morning after might have been considerably less fun, but oh well.

On So Louis C.K. Is a Women-Denigrating Pig Now, According to Greta Van Susteren

MI Black is absolutely right on this. Van Susteren is taking part in Fox's hamhanded attempt to cash in on identity politics and cast Sarah Palin as some kind of Joan of Arc martyr figure. And it's definitely a Fox News joint. If Van Susteren were self-employed or working for another network, I don't see her crusading against Louis CK.

On Yes, Dear < Taxi: What Older Shows Would You Like to See on TV Again?

Gotta be Barney Miller. Everything about that show clicked. I don't even know if MeTV carries it. Taxi, that gets a vote too. And I enjoyed Dobie Gillis and the Patty Duke show back when TV Land ran them.

On Happy Endings Recap: "The Kerkovich Way"

I loved this one. Not sure if it's the best episode of the season, but it's up there. And it's bilingual to boot!

On What Non-Comedy Songs Make You Laugh?

Not sure if They Might Be Giants would be considered a comedy band or not. They do have a lot of funny songs.

On What Non-Comedy Songs Make You Laugh?

@Joshua Ungerleider Good catch on Warren Zevon. "Lawyers, Guns and Money" is a hilarious song.
