Wow, it's like a week of disclosures of missed media...
The joke simply wasn't going to work for a duet with Vampire Willow, so I needed the traditional triad sitcom format... but if it's going to be UPN, what's left? And what would I actually watch? Sure, I've seen an episode of "Gilmore Girls" (I have a wife, these things happen), but it's far more likely that I'll watch the three seasons of "Veronica Mars" instead of the seven of the former. (And she has all of these on DVD.) So "Veronica Mars" joins "Deadwood" on the list of "TV shows to load up on the new iPod to catch up on during downtime at work this year..."
I wonder what the Counselor would think of Lich Barrister if she interviewed him? :D
I take it Carlos here sees outside the fourth wall, like she and Captain Exposition can?
Yeah, he says it dismissively in the 2nd-last panel. The key (almost) was talking about where the Counselor's from more than from him.
And I'll keep myself away from the Counselor for the time being... but if she's meta-aware then who's to say that she's not already interviewing him/me?
