Picture this: A sitcom called "Coffee & Donuts" starring Joe Lynch and Adam Green. Ya, that was the same reaction I had. Apparently it will be based on Green's first short film, and had originally been pitched to UPN a few years ago.

This may be enough to get me back into watching regular television. Stay tuned!

Here's a way to get back at your father for all those chores you had to do when you were a kid... how about cut out his pacemaker with a pocket knife? I kid, of course, but the story at the link proves that it's actually possible to do such a thing. Read at your own risk.
