Hebrew Humor

Jews are fun to laugh at. From Philip Roth's Portnoy's Complaint to Seinfeld to Adam Sandler's "The Hanukkah Song (versions ad nauseum)," the rule is tried and true: laugh at a Jew and you will be laughing for a long time.

ZeN-Trification

Almost Famous

In the beginning, Philly was all about the idea of exposing itself on cable by hosting The Real World. Seriously, we even protested in the streets to get the stupid show to come here.

Which TV network are you?

You know you're bored, you might as well find out... 1. You just got dumped. You: (a) Dissect the break-up the next day on your annoying radio show. (b) Drop some acid then go look at the bodies in the family morgue.

TV on DVD

Popular -- the complete first season This show was admittedly the poor man's My So-Called Life, with a typical teenybopper cast of characters (the rich bitch, the quarterback, the ambiguously gay guy, the weird activist) and supposedly witty one-liners like"Michael Jackson called, he wants his eyebrows back." So why does it merit preservation for posterity on DVD?

Reality bites

Stop the pretending; we know your secret. You skipped the company barbeque to watch the finale of Outback Jack. And then you went to the CBS website after missing an episode of the Amazing Race, just to see if those douchebag twins were finally given the boot.

Bye, bye, bye

Street has a lot of senior goodbyes to make as the Spring semester comes to a close. But really, rather than interact with precious friends for the last time, we have become obsessed with the final episodes of our favorite TV shows.
