plagiarism[edit]

if you visit the tvguide article numbered 3 in reference you will see that an entire paragraph is nothing more than copy & pasted from text on tvguide.com.

"The pickup comes days after the show saw a ratings high of 1.1 million on Sunday, when it followed Curb Your Enthusiasm's Seinfeld reunion episode. Since its Sept. 20 debut, Bored to Death's pilot has been seen by 4.1 million viewers with repeats factored in."

the text on wikipedia reads: "HBO has renewed the comedy for a second season. The pickup came days after the show saw a ratings high of 1.1 million on Sunday, when it followed Curb Your Enthusiasm's Seinfeld reunion episode. Since its Sept. 20 debut, Bored to Death's pilot has been seen by 4.1 million viewers with repeats factored in." M8gen (talk) 02:14, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

This is Wikipedia. Just about everyone can edit just about any article. Be bold and fix things that are wrong. Here, I'll show you how. --Snaxe/fow (talk) 05:03, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

Notes section[edit]

Does anyone else think this section isn't particularly useful? This section says that Zack G. "made loose reference" to the show and references the IMDb quotes page for The Hangover. That's not particularly interesting unless we know what quote it was exactly; I can't find any reference to Bored to Death in The Hangover's quotes page.

Basically the same thing again with the claim that the show's been mentioned in The Office. Again, if it's not shown exactly what was said about Bored I don't see how this is of particular interest. And, it's not sourced.

I'm thinking of removing the section, what does everyone think? Or, if someone can expand it to show what particularly was said about Bored to Death in The Hangover and The Office, that would be cool; I tried and can't. - Jmartinsson (talk) 16:18, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

It is actually Three Men and A Baby they are referencing - He states that it stars "Ted Danson, Magnum P.I and that Jewish actor"

Easy to see how someone could have confused it with Bored to Death (if in the reality of the film it was Magnum P.I instead of Zach, but it should be taken down). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.169.74.105 (talk) 05:14, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

Classical vs Social Liberalism[edit]

Is George a Classical Liberal or a Social Liberal? Draykyle (talk) 18:19, 1 October 2011 (UTC)

The exact quote is that most people think of him as "an old-fashioned liberal" but he actually considers himself a "closet libertarian: fiscally responsible, but sexually out of control". I'm going to edit the article to reflect such. db26 (talk) 22:05, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
