  1. what's all the hype with mad men? nacu-curious ako gusto ko tuloy bumili ng dvd. pati 30rock, cos i havent watched it yet.

    and why is "how i met your mother" never nominated as best comedy? ahehe, gustong gusto ko kasi sha... i think barney deserves an award for his performance... :)

  2. I can't recommend you Mad Men kasi kahit ako I gave up on that show. It's too sexis for my taste.

    I will recommend you 30 Rock though. It grows better and better each season.

    That's the million dollar question. Pagod na ako kay Piven, as much as I like him. NPH sana nga.
