Kichern in der deutschen?

For his birthday, my dad wants DVDs of German films/TV series. But they can't be grim or weird. German comedies are the safest bet. Do those exist? [more inside]

Help me find a Spanish-language medical drama

Help me find a Spanish-language medical drama to improve my Spanish. Bonus points if it's available free and legally on-line (Hulu etc.) or via Netflix. I'm not looking for a telenovela - I would prefer something like ER or Chicago Hope. I've already seen some of Destinos. Spanish-subtitled episodes of ER, etc. would be a second choice. Please, save my patients from my gringa Spanish!

Tickets please...movie tickets, that is.

When I was in Japan about ten years ago, I recall seeing a movie on the VHS rental racks about a guy working at a remote train station, possibly in the north of Japan? I seem to recall that the cover/poster had the station agent standing in a snowfall, and I think he was played by a much-loved actor, but I can't recall the title or the actor. I believe it's a dramatic film from the mid-to-late 1990s. Does this description ring any bells? I'd like to finally see it.

How to deal with someone unhinged who has threatened our reputation?

Need some advice on dealing with a mentally ill person over whom I have no control. Several months ago, I along with other people that I know, agreed to help someone put on a show. We run our own community theater company, and we have a lot of contacts – volunteers of all stripes, a couple of professional people, etc. Without detailing everything to the point of giving myself away, there were points along the way where we really thought we should quit, but this person was a friend, and we thought it would work itself out. Long story short, it has not. [more inside]
