South Park is great. Family guy is one of the funniest shows of all time period. I hate Seinfeld, hate the characters hate the stories hate it all. Now the Simpsons-that's a classic. Can't go wrong with the Simpsons. Or NewsRadio-Phil Hartman was a god.

Isn't it amazing how people so easily hijack other people's threads? :-t

Come on guys, if you need to take about TV shows there is the General Talk forum or at least make up your own thread.

Whatever my reference to South Park reference tied in directly to insinuations Boone was on steroids, then everyone else's comments tied in to eftda's comment which tied in to mine.

That's why they call it a thread, it starts one place and often ends up in another place entirely.

Don't you hate it when people try to play fun police :-t

Thats not the point of a thread that asks a question. When I asked, I wanted answers to the question, not to have people talk about something completely different than whether Boone or Kent is better. Excuse me if I sound rude, but stuff like this is annoying when you are only seeking information and people take it upon themselves to "ruin" my 'quest for knowledge' by selfishly hijacking the thread for their entertainment. I have absolutely no problem with people joking around, just not at the expense of the thread maker's actual question. thank you

Allow me to respectfully disagree with your philosophy here. In any case, I think without the thumbs down smiley, I wouldn't have fired back at you. I think there's a better way to refocus the dialogue.

In any case, this stuff happens, the good thing is it keeps the thread on page 1, which attracts more responses, the bad thing is, you have to sift through a couple of third generation responses that don't necessarily relate to the topic at hand.

In any case, coming off as a "thread nazi" isn't going to do much for your case in my book.

I post on a couple of other message boards and I've never seen such anal retention about getting a smidgeon off topic.

I feel your frustration but if it makes you feel any better I was one of the first people to reply to your topic and I gave an honest opinion on it...then only later did I feel I had to defend South Park and give Homer and Hartman their dues. I digress.

Back to the original topic:

I prefer Kent. Higher ceiling in my opinion and a very hitter friendly park to hit in. It is close, but I give the edge to Kent.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I agree with Madison. Last year was an off year for him and I say he bounces back huge this year.

No disrespect, are you joking? I hope so.
