I guess when I posted this I knew it would be difficult to respond to. So, assuming that no one out there is just spending a really long time preparing a very thoughtful response :wink: , I'll try this again (probably just as likely to receive no replies): Anyone interested in reading what I have so...

Favorite over-all episode: “Self-Esteem” (but I love “Halloween”) Favorite moment between 2 or more characters: Brian and Rickie sitting on the stairs in ”Self-Esteem” …“He didn’t even see the difference between Enrique and Ricardo” “Who’s Enrique and Ricardo”… Favorite, like, quote: Way Too HARD to...

I disagree that Brian told Jordan. A good friend of mine dislikes MSCL because of the show's tendency to set up difficult and awkward situations and then cut to another scene without showing how these scenes are resolved, this scene in particular bugs him for that reason. While the scene does end wi...

I realize many out there will disagree, but I argue that Jordan, like Brad, “is surprisingly perceptive.” For as many times as Jordan misunderstands Angela, there are many when he does: “What, you miss him?” Jordan understands from just a look that Angela misses Rickie and needs to be reassured by s...

I don't think Brian let's go of his obsession with Angela when he makes the shampoo comment in "Life of Brian". I think he's just making an observation and that he would like to let go of his obsession but can't. First, YEAH! it is my first successful text quote!!! Anyway, what I meant was that Bra...

I really like where that first paragraph of Angla's voice over was going -- it could be reworked a little to sound a little more like Angela. I am not sure that the second paragraph is necessary. It seems like you're taking a harsher view of Patty than she deserves; also, remember that Patty had had...

Your proudest moments of MSCL Characters

What are your proudest moments of MSCL Characters? Brian at the end of "Life of Brian" when he lets go of his obsession with Angela and realizes that it might just be her shampoo. In "Pressure" when Angela and Brian are talking on the stairs and he says, "so is that like a problem you're having" -- ...

A long while ago on a chat thread (not actually on “Life of Brian” if I recall), someone that “Life of Brian” was not anything to “write home about,” I disagree. “Life of Brian” is one of the best episodes of the series. Besides being named after one of the greatest movies, the episode is excellent ...

I really like what Jack was saying-- seeing the story of Rayanne and Angela played out differently "with another roll of the dice" --rewriting what has already happened (very much like Huckleberry Finn -- the book, not the character). I have often tried to give a history to the Rayanne and Barsh sto...

Help developing certain character storylines

I have six episodes started, some are near the halfway mark, others are a little less than that, but I am finding that I am most comfortable creating storylines for Jordan and Angela, and Brian only in relation to Angela. I love Graham and Patty as characters, but still find it difficult to continue...

Everything by David Sedaris! He has four books: Naked, Me Talk pretty One Day, Holidays On Ice, and Barrel Fever (my least favorite). He also reads his stories on NPR, and publishes works in New Yorker, and a men's magazine (maybe GQ?). He and his sister Amy (from Strangers with Candy and Sex and th...

I love Still Life with Woodpecker! Robin's writing is incredible. A couple years ago some friends and I read an interview he gave -- very cool.

Help! I'm new and I can't Quote

Okay, Hello. I'm feeling pitiful, because as many posts as I have made (don't let the number next to my name fool you, I've been posting as a guest for a while) I have not figured out the super cool quote boxes - I just copy and paste. What am I doing wrong, and how do I do it right? Thanks!!!

I LOVE Collin Firth too! (Although I'm not sure about his short story...) Anyway, I was disapointed in the film, it was just kind of silly and didn't really develop all the characters that well. I liked the scenes with Liam and the little boy, and Firth and the girl, however, I felt the movie in gen...
