The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    I can't believe no one has mentioned Arrested Development. One of the best.
    Credulous at best

    Angels in the hearts of men.

    And give a listen
    Shouldn't have to say it all again

    You beat me to it.

    24, and Trailer Park Boys are also great suggestions. Prison Break is also a good show, although I've only just recently gotten into it so I can't really make a recommendation on the first season.

    "The Sopranos is one of the most critically praised show of its time.[14] It has been consistently hailed as one of the best shows on television and has been judged the top drama series of all time by TV Guide and appears as the fifth highest show on their Top 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time list (behind only Seinfeld, I Love Lucy, The Honeymooners and All in the Family). The show topped virtually every "Best TV Show" list in its debut season in 1999, with the New York Times calling it "the greatest work of American popular culture in the last 25 years". Newsweek has said in the past that it was "far and away, the best show on television".

    Nobody else watches this show?

    I've never really watched much of the show, but it does look good from the little I have seen.

    My University offers a 'Sopranos' class, which my girlfriend currently takes. I went to her class once to see what it was all about and it is actually a very complex and interesting show -- lots of imagery, metaphors, etc. There's tons writen about it on the net.

    no doubt, I can't believe noone else mentioned this. each show is like a short movie. Last season is coming in January. If you ever have an open weekends(its gonna take A WHILE) i HIGHLY suggest plowing through the first 6 seasons on DVD (6 just came out on DVD).

    That'll help land a 100k a year salary post-grad. Hope her parents aren't footing the bill.

    Band of Brothers was excellent. WWII series. Very well done.
    Rome is good. More about the characters and intrigue than action.
    Sopranos. Have only seen the first two seasons. Very good.
    Battlestar Gallactica, the new series, if you like sci-fi.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    Curb your enthusiasm is hilarious! (got all 5 series on dvd soon as i saw one episode of this on tv), arrested developement is equally funny.

    A little more serious, sopranos, band of brothers and prison break are all excellent.

    EDIT: scrubs is pretty funny aswell

    The Sopranos - Watched the first episode and I was hooked ever since

    Its always Sunny in Philadelphia (not on dvd yet tho but on the net if you can find it) - My stoner friend introduced me to this series and its actually pretty funny.

    Lost - you already know what all the hype is about.

    Heroes - This show "might" be better than lost. Well thats what some people say.

    Desperate Housewives - My excuse... My gf got me into it.

    Prison Break - Dunno if its out on dvd yet, but again its on the net. Definately worth watching. Every episode is a rush!



    Quick tip: learn to modify an xbox to play divx/.avi movies. Its just awesome when you can download the new episode of the show that just aired.

    Right, because you've never taken a bird-course right?

    It's offered at the University of Ottawa. It's actually called Italian Culture or something like that, but essentially they just watch and analyze the Sopranos.

    Sopranos - by far the best show ever invented. But only watch the first three seasons - after that it goes down hill.

    Curb Your Enthusiasm - hilarious!

    24 - excellent show for being on regular cable. Some of the story lines are getting repetitive/over the top as it ages, but overall still a great show.

    CSI - the Las Vegas version is the best, but I've warmed up to the Miami edition as well.

    The Ultimate Fighter - improves every season.

    King of Queens - recently started watching this on TBS and it's gold. Not sure if it's on DVD.
