King of Queens. I know it's not cool but...
I know it isn't usually cool around here to like sitcoms (Or American Idol, or SNL, or Mad TV, or Law and Order without Jerry, or Friends, or Seinfeld, or ..hell, you catch my drift), but does anyone else think that Jerry Stiller is fucking hilarious?

That dude makes me laugh at every scene he is in on that show. The show isn't really that bad, but I doubt I would watch it if Stiller wasn't in it. Just trying to pass time here at work.

2. I have this question
Is it cool to like L&O CI with Chris Noth. Next to Jerry he was my favorite detective from the L&O franchise, and I am not including Belzer as Munch. He will always be a part of Homicide: Life on the Street for me.

14. Did you ever see, "Salton Sea" ?
He was sinister in that movie ! He plays a totally psychotic meth dealer, Val Kilmer starred in it also. Check it out if you haven't already.

I should warn you that it is a shocking movie, not for the squeamish.

6. Did you see this past episode of Law and Order SVU?
Jerry Lewis did a pretty good job.

If he left, that show would be worthless.

12. He was on the roast for William Shatner on Comedy Central
He was really pretty funny on there, but yeah.. I've never seen his stand up, but I have heard it's pretty good.


Wow, I watch a lot of friggin' TV..LOL

That's when they run King of Queens and I'm here at work wondering if it's gonna be a funny one tonight when I get home. :rofl:

That is what made me start this thread. :no-life:

17. Patton Oswalt is hilarious!
I have his comedy CD and it is one of those "laugh out loud, tears rolling down your face" kinda funny. I highly recommend checking it out.

10. I like KofQ in small doses.
But yes, Jerry Stiller is hilarious.
And I will not hold back on my love for each and every L&O show on. I love all three of them and I'm not ashamed to admit it. mmmm....Vincent..
:loveya:

11. Jerry Stiller is great, and I love that sitcom.
I could not give a fuck whether it's "cool" or not.

And I loved Seinfeld also.

16. I agree!
That's one of the best sitcoms in a looooong time.

I like Curb Your Enthusiasm too.

18. I think it's a funny show
I catch it in syndication every now and then, but your right Jerry Stiller is the heart and soul of that show.

19. I am just thinking..
Last night was one when he wanted Doug to pass the ketchup, and he was pronouncing it cat-soup because that is how educated people pronounce it. Just thinking about that whole bit makes me laugh.

21. lol
I saw the episode last night where he gives his experimental psoriasis medicine to Spence's mom (and real life wife, Anne Meara) because he was afraid of the side effects. I love it when she guest stars because the way those two riff off of each other is fantastic

23. The other day was when he sold her the burial plot
And then that "hot chick" at the old age home wanted it so he took it back from Spence's mom. Then he took her to the cemetery to look for another plot and he saw a stone that said Ben Johnson. She says she used to know a Ben Johnson and wondered if it was him. He says "Of course it's him, how many Ben Johnsons can there be?"

20. who dat?
The dad in the basement?

I don't like that Leah Remini chick so I can't watch it at all. She's a scientology freak and obnoxious as hell in real life. Women like that are the epitomy of everything I was raised not to be...it makes me wonder how they ever get laid. But wait, I've seen her on some pregnancy show with her husband (she reproduced... :scared: )

She orders him around like a complete slave, just like my sister in laws do to my brothers. My brothers are both whipped as hell. WTF is that about, anyway?

22. I caught her on The Ellen show the other day while flipping thru
I'm not a big fan of Ellen, but while watching it I became a fan because compared to Leah Remini, Ellen rocks..LOL. That woman is so friggin' irritating to me.

25. the only show I've ever liked her on was Howard Stern
Edited on Thu Oct-12-06 02:58 PM by idgiehkt
She really took the piss out of those guys, didn't let 'em push her around one bit and actually left the most obnoxious one speechless a few times, which was highly entertaining to me. In that atmosphere she's cool but in normal life you just want to cram something down her throat.
