Truthful speaking would be a simple way to tell the truth, if the truth were simple and could be told.

TV Shows

Pick your five favorite TV shows (in no particular order) and answer the following questions. Don’t cheat!

1.  Pushing Daisies
2.  30 Rock
3.  Avatar:  The Last Airbender
4.  The Simpsons
5.  Mad Men

Who’s your favorite character in 2?
Liz Lemon.  That poor girl who's just trying to find love.  Yeah, I know it's a cheat to heart the main character, but whatever.

Who’s your least favorite character in 1?
Chuck.  She doesn't do a whole lot but complain and whine.  I agree with Emerson Cod about her most of the time. 

What’s your favorite episode of 4?
Tough but I liked the parody of Cape Fear (titled Cape Feare) quite a lot. 

What’s your favorite season of 5?
The third.  The season finale was like the best episode of that show ever.  EVER.

How long have you watched 1?
From the day it premiered to long past its abrupt and inhumane cancellation.

How did you become interested in 3?
Kept hearing about it, seeing toys of Aang, etc. popping up everywhere, reruns on Nickelodean, saw that there was a movie coming out, saw that the first season was streaming on Netflix, and then just got carried away.  Now I don't wanna see the movie for fear that it'll taint the TV show.

Who’s your favorite actor in 4?
Either Dan Castellenta or Hank Azaria.  They do the most characters, so . . . .

Which show do you prefer? 1, 2, or 5?
Number one.  Pushing Daisies is my favorite TV show of all time.  ALL TIME.

Which show have you seen more episodes of; 1 or 3?
Three, just because there are more episodes altogether.  But I've watched the episodes in one a lot more.

If you could be anyone from 4, who would you be?
Lisa Simpson.

Give a random quote from 1.
"Well just because it was ajar doesn’t mean it wasn’t a door before it was a jar which would indicate to most people to a-knock before a-entering."

Would a 3/4 crossover work?
Probably not.  Although they're both animated, their universes are so radically different.  I'm sure four would parody three at some point or another, however.

Pair two characters in 1 that would make an unlikely, but strangely okay couple.
No, because it wouldn't work at all.  In its brief run, Fuller paired up a whole lot of characters, even to the point of making them all awkward and ponderous, so no.  Or just Olive Snook with any of the guys other than Ned.

Has 5 inspired you in any way?
To smoke more. 

Overall, which show has a better cast? 3 or 5?
Probably five, just because Mad Men is live action and everyone is seriously seriously invested, and in Avatar, they were invested in different ways.

Which has better theme music, 2 or 4?
Four, obviously.  The Simpsons theme is a classic.
