Loved that show. Not a fan of Franco's character at all, but Bill MORE than makes up for it. :lol:

I watched that episode last night.

I agree though, I wasn't a fan of Franco's character. Watching it again, I'm really not a fan of most of them. Seth Rogen is just a cynical ass, and Segal is the same doof he always plays.

I am a fan of the Weirs though, and that's why I watch it. I like Sam's friends though :lol:

The more I watch this, the more I see how everyone in this but the Weirs and Bill are trash. Even Neal and Millie are trash.

Bill doesn't like jokes. He doesn't find them funny.

I think you would :lol:

I forgot to mention this, but on Hulu it has the original soundtrack again. I never watched it on broadcast TV, I only know it from DVD, and this music is way better.

Bill is the spokesman for this company called Shift that buys and sells cars online. I see him on the TV every day telling me to sell my car to him and I will get a big pile of cash. I am very tempted to sell my accent to Bill. I think Bill would enjoy it.

I love Bill. He's like a chameleon. I'll see him in a movie and it will take a minute for me to say, WAIT! THAT'S BILL! :lol:

Yeah, I think he's one of the better actors on the show. It's too bad he's not in more things, I think he'd be really good. Did you ever watch Life in Pieces? It was a comedy on CBS so I'm thinking you did. He was a recurring character on there about twice a season. He was a handyman who Colin Hanks had a man crush on. He was basically Bill grown up, and he'd have these WTF? stories about all kinds of things like trapping and eating possums, weird white trash things, etc. and looked like one of those guys who just smelled bad all the time :lol:

He is great on the show Party Down, which I recommend if you haven't seen it.
