I took a stab at fiving series one some time back, got three episodes in, and promptly floundered. But it's still definitely on my to-do list, so never say never. Or "soon" either, for that matter.

I like the idea of Lost fivers, as well as Tru Calling and Farscape. And do you think Medium would work?

Hmmm......5MLost.....
"This section disappeared from Zeke's pocket....It will be uploaded soon."

Perhaps 24 fivers could be 24 lines long? Or all in multiples of 24 or something?

It can't -- believe me, I've tried. It's just too fact-based and packed to leave any room for mocking. The best fiver material comes from characters that you can caricature. (See: Kirk, Janeway, Troi, Phlox, Reed, Mayweather.) CSI just doesn't have enough character meat for regular fiving.
I also tried. Well, mentally tried, anyway, after Zeke said, "Noes, we've tried, it can't be done!"

I refused to accept it and as a result, got my ass handed to me when I discovered that it's just... not fiveable. D:

More accurately, what I said was that Kira had tried. Someone else might be able to do it. These things are influenced by personality and attitude and dairy products and such.

And if I ever say "Noes," you can safely kill me, because it means I've been replaced by a Cylon.

^ Actually, you'd probably start saying things like "Pie is Love" long before you got to that point.

Dude. A reality show. About models. That's just too easy. Besides, if I'm doing anything on UPN, it's going to be the amazingly kick-ass Veronica Mars, but topping that show's snark would be rough. ("Annoy, tiny blonde one. Annoy like the wind!")
One thing to say about that:



It's funny, too, because that's what I said in the chat. If I were a girl I'd want to be like Veronica Mars.

Um...I didn't say that earlier. The other thing. About wanting to see that show fived. That. Yeah.

You know, that sounds familiar, but I can't find the original on Google. How does it go?

Sorry, I got the author wrong -- Parker is always good for a witty quote, but this wasn't hers.

Bah. The ending of JAG is "The jury finds Rabb victorious."

I stopped watching that show back in season 5.

I recommend Payback and The Butterfly Effect... unless you have seen those and weren't counting them under good recent sf films.

All kidding aside, folks, IJD didn't just bring up movies as a way of poking fun at himself. One of the ideas we're currently floating around is doing more movie fivers. There's a good side and a bad side to that idea. The good side: movies are way more popular than TV, so we'd get some attention that way. (Know which single fiver shows up the most often in the referrals, and has gotten me the most fan mail? Nope, you're not even close. Five-Minute The Ring.) The bad side, of course, is that movies aren't the best way to get repeat business. Lots of people at the Ring forum liked my parody, but until a month ago, what could I do for an encore?

Nonetheless, doing more movies seems like a good plan. It's on the table, between BSG and a ham sandwich.

I've recently seen "The Grudge" and "The Amityville Horror", you could always try them. They might be a little hard, though.
