My love for Daniel Manu...

Who the frak is Daniel Manu you ask? Is he some hunky new upincomer that was featured in peoples sexiest whatever? Is he a funny new addition to The Office crew? Did he get some hot TV star pregnant?
Actually no to all of the above. He is the new director of two of my favorite websites and, check them out! He also used to be the Editorial Director for and my weekly savior in the war that is the Monday morning commute. What the hell am I talking about you ask? I don't even know myself! All I know is that I miss him very much. You see, I used to listen to The TVGUIDE Podcast ( HERE ) like it was nobodies business. Dan used to open and close each podcast and somewhat moderate what went on during discussion.He had this sort of self deprecating humor that I love in people. After listening to the podcast all year long, I looked forward to hearing his opinions about all of my favorite TV shows, not to mention listen to him say very inappropriate things. It was on my trip to Yosemite in the middle of freaking no where that I got the bomb shell news that he was no longer going to be part of the podcast. I literally screamed as my boyfriend looked at me in sheer horror! Ever since he left the podcast I haven't listened to a single episode. I don't know if I can. Dan is seriously the BEST shit talker ever. If you are going to talk shit you have to be quick on your feet and witty, otherwise you just sound like a fucking asshole. He mastered the fine art of shit talking only like a few can. Not to mention he is the biggest comic book, TV, and pop culture geek (by his own admission). The rest of the trip home I introduced my boyfriend to my love for Dan and we proceeded to listen to the podcast for what must have been four hours.

If you guys are as bored as I am or looking for something TV related to listen to go to Itunes or TVGUIDE and check out what I am talking about. If you don't want to instantly become his BFF or geeky girlfriend then you can come back and talk shit. Just a reminder he left on episode 101 so anything after that is sans Dan.

If you need a Manu fix, I found him doing a weekly call-in to the TV Talk podcast hosted by Shaun OMac. Every Monday Dan Calls in, his segment starts about 20 minutes in, and lasts until around the one hour point. The rest of the podcast isn't great, but Dan is good!
