    gotta throw Julia Louis-Dreyfus on there. Elaine is one of my all time fav sitcom characters!
    JLD is a very interesting one but I think Selina Meyer is a better comparison to Michael Scott. She also had to walk the line between being a terrible person and someone you rooted for. And she did it excellently with way more venom than Carrell. 
  • Eating Their Own. And their $$$

    I'll add my 2 cents even though I've banged my head against this wall several times before. I hate that the politics threads moved off the board. Don't come at me. I know exactly why it was done. However, it's also the reason I probably won't renew when my subscription runs out. The guys just don't really cover stuff I watch anymore and the politics thread was the one thing I checked several times a day. Like I've said in the past reddit is a non starter for me so as much as I love supporting small businesses, I'm just not sure what I'm getting out of this relationship.
