One of them quit the first day and left for home. He banged in a Santro in Delhi roads citing 'I thought he might give me the right of way' LOL who is he kidding ? Then he scraped an Innova where the passenger opened the door w/o looking behind and the entire door was opened up in a fashion which should not have.
The other guy is tough but uses abusive language to see people driving like crazy w/o respect for life. The other one is a girl and she is not as mentally tough as the other one but still hanging on.
The truck cleaners or sporters or spotters or whatever you call them are deficient in English so they teach the Americans how to pronounce MC instead of f-words.

One of the truckers said yesterday 'I have driven in every state in the US and practically every road there is, but by far nothing comes close to this and that too in one day.
Looks interesting. What time does this come on?

Dexter Season 5 have started well and is turning out to be very very interesting.End of Rita in last episode of season 4 was shocking.Dexter and Prison Break are my all time favorites.

Anime
One Piece - my all time favourite series (TV/anime/cartoons). It is Anime/Manga close to 450 20 min episodes. Must watch in Japanese language with English subs. Looks like a child drama but it is super addictive. Brilliant comedy, action, awesome storyline. By the way it will take another 10 years to complete.

Deathnote is worth watching for first 25-26 episodes. Balance 11 slow it down a little.


TV series
Dexter is a brilliant series.
season 2,4,1,3 in the order of awesomeness. 5 has started of really well. I never expected Dexter to be aired in India. Good to see it coming here

Two and Half men just rocks. Birlliant punchlines here

M.A.S.H a brilliant comedy. Seasons 1-3 are a must watch.

A lot of Brit detective series are very good. American stuff is all about Gadgets and action etc where as brit stuff has very deep storyline. The way they make the shows most of the episodes will be censored in India. Hope we get some of them here at a later stage.

The shows I watch-Masterchef Australia-the tension is gripping. I miss -24-Anil Kapoor did an excellent potrayal of Middle Eastern President. Man versus Machine, Man versus Food, Man vs Wild, Raging planet and Breaking the Magicians Code. Except Masterchef rest is at the wifey's fancy-otherwise TV is tuned on Colours or Imagine.

I used to watch this when I was younger. Is this the same one or has it restarted with new characters. It was funny that time.

Of the private TV shows we should also watch for End Game and Loose Change on YouTube or TV. Be informed about what is happening around you. Ofcourse no one can do anything about it, but it is gripping the entire US one person at a time and sooner or later the filth might enter India as well in shady forms like BT Bringal and Medical Insurance which were non existant 10 years back.

Hall was absolutely brilliant in Allan Ball's Six feet under(seen it ) also.

I love watching True Blood also. Although based on Vampires it is way better than Twilight.

Dexter, the way the paces picks up is absolutely brilliant. Icetruck

Pysch is funny the first 3 seasons.

Monk is good in the first 2 seasons. but the detective is getting too eccentric these days. the replacement Sidekick lady is a pain.
