Hey Everyone! I just started my own podcast called "generally speaking." It will have a majority of shows devoted soley to Lost! My podcast is not going to be as great as LostCasts, The Transmission, or TV Squad, but will certainly be a new perspective on the show. I figured during this six week break would be a great time to start my podcast. Please check it out and let me know what you think! I Love The TV SQUAD LOST PODCAST! Keep up the great work guys!

I still can't get into Grey's Anatomy. And Bebop, I love that 'Diversity Day' episode. Don't we all know someone who quotes Chris Rock around the office.

Autopsy, huh? That wouldn't have been the ep of House I'd pick, but there you go.

The complete nominations can be read at the WGA site: http://www.wgaeast.org/awards/2005/12/14/television_noms_1/ What's the deal with the Simpsons getting every animation nomination? Since there are nominations for Weeds and Nip/Tuck I know these people get cable. Is their Cartoon Network broken? Does their FOX affiliate shut off at 8:59 so they never see Family Guy? Do they live in a different dimension where Spongebob doesn't exist? It's the dumbest thing I have heard since...well.. two days ago..when the four women from Desperate Housewives were all nominated for Golden Globes.

Yeah, more stupid meaningless awards. No other profession in the world hands out more awards than the entertainment industry. There should only be two awards handed out each year. Business person of the year, and World's Greatest Grandpa (or Grandma).

If the "Diversity Day" episode of the office wins, then star B.J. Novack(the Temp) will get the award, he wrote the episode.
