TV better than Movies?

As drunken people do, over the weekend we talked about stuff and someone (a drunk Dan) said that TV is rubbish. Now I didn't agree with him, citing Buffy, Babylon 5, Lost, Firefly etc (I should have mentioned Dr Who but didn't, I wasn't exactly sober myself), Dan had some good points about how B5 was good but he wouldn't want to watch it again. His argument about Buffy floundered somewhat when Ester (his wife) mentioned him only seeing about half an episode out of 7 series. ;)

Anyway saw a link to this which discusses who certain people (who have worked in both) think that TV is better than Movies.

I'm not sure I agree but also I think that a lot of Hollywood films
are rubbish, and there is a lot going for looking elsewhere (ie non US
films), whereas with a few notably exceptions (and I'll include UK
shows like Office etc) the best of American TV is better than anywhere

The new year (Dan's off)

Well here is 2006 (yep I'm only 10 days late ;) )

Went up to Nottingham last weekend to see Dan before he and his wife Ester leave from Tokyo. This meant several things. Drinking quite a bit more than I should have but not nearly as much as Dan :)
Buying lots of comics from Page 45 which I didn't leave in every pub we went to, this is much better than Dan's stag where I did. Thanks to Stephen from Page 45 who kept taking me back to the every pub we have just left.

I also bought the latest Fields of the Nephilim album Mouring Sun, which is really good dodgy old goth.

Had a really good weekend seeing Dan, Ester, Rich, Tina, Tom, Denise, and Kip anywhere Conway (so named for being able to sleep anywhere and everywhere)

I hope Dan and Ester have a great time in Japan.
