The season of Fall is upon us. Lisa Tobias returns again to the
show. That can only mean one thing: It's time for the Couch Surfing
podcast, baby! It feels good to be back in the swing of things.
00:02:28 - Lisa is enjoying the updated version of 90210. John is
00:05:35 - The Fringe pilot caused unintentional laughter from
John, but Joshua Jackson is a bad-ass, so he's going to keep
00:15:16 - True Blood was a bit of a letdown for Lisa, but she's
still on board. John is reminded of Sundown, starring Bruce
00:19:34 - John is finally watching Six Feet Under. So far, he's
not impressed, finding much of Alan Ball's work cold and
00:27:52 - Free DVD rentals from the Library are exposing John to
mediocre entertainment such as the Amityville Horror remake and
Babel, but he strongly recommends the special edition of David

00:35:55 - Be sure to pick up the long overdue special releases of
Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club and Weird Science this
00:38:12 - At the end of this month, keep an eye out for the tenth
anniversary release of Can't Hardly Wait. Hopefully, we'll get to
see more of Amber Benson in the film!

deal with his first ever serious virus on his computer. A system
recovery (F10) was performed. Everything is fine, now.
00:42:25 - Due to the computer virus, John had to read stuff (!).
When all is said and done, he finishes the novelization of Can't
Hardly Wait, but was left kind of bored with the Brian Michael
Bendis graphic novel, Powers: Who Killed Retro Girl? (Answer: The
Butler did it. Just kidding.)
00:45:36 - John is curious to check out the reboot of Geek By
Night, and recommends listeners to do the same. He wonders how much
of his input remains in the show, if any.
00:49:38 - A shout out to Geek By Night and Buffy Between The Lines
alum, Rachel Ruzzo.
00:55:51 - We get our Neil Patrick Harris fix by watching Harold
& Kumar: Escape From Guantanamo Bay.
01:02:11 - John & Lisa are hopeful they can take Tim Minear up
on his offer to be on the show soon (call us, Tim! Let's do cyber
