Suddenly there be audiobooks! Lots of audiobooks! I went from zero to
seven (and counting) in the blink of an eye. Okay, so maybe the "blink
of an eye" took a few decades but I'm there now and totally delighted!
It will take a few days for most of them to trickle over to Amazon and
iTunes, but here's the link for Audible.
So The Husband and I are watching The Sting
(I've still never made it all the way through to the end without falling
asleep) and I commented that Newman and Redford were prettier than any
of the women in the movie. Especially Redford, I said.
(I mean, the man was gorgeous.) Anyway, The Husband looked at Redford
on the screen then turned to me and said, "You really think that
pock-marked shrimp is good-looking?"
I'm still trying to come up with a suitable response that doesn't include loud whoops of laughter.

Totally agree that The Sopranos deserve the top spot. Brilliant in ways
I'm still discovering. I've never watched The Wire of Mad Men so I
can't comment on them but I would definitely move The West Wing into the
#2 spot. And I'd add Barney Miller. What do you think?
