THE ORIGINAL JUST SHOOT ME WEBSITE
(www.angelfire.com/ga/hikeeba/jsm.html)
Though NBC’s giggly comedy about the madcap staff of a women’s mag doesn’t boast as much of a fan following as some of the Peacock’s other shows, Henry Hanks tries to compensate. Unfortunately, he tends to lay the text on a little thick (white space, hello!) at this childishly laid-out temple to David Spade and Co. The site does get applause for up-to-date info (episode guide, casting and scheduling news, linked articles), but it’s thinner than an anorexic cover girl when it comes to really innovative content.

THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH CRAIG KILBORN
(www.cbs.com/network/tvshows/mini/latelate)
Fans of this sarcastic frat-boy icon will delight in sections like ”Craig! The Internet’s Most Complete Craig Kilborn Search Engine,” which gives you a quasi-poetic phrase about the subject you’re looking for. Audio and video clips were inaccessible when we tried them, but you can scan the parodically retooled news clippings, and even unleash your own sarcasm by e-mailing Craiggers. Still, the real fun is Kilborn’s half-baked bio, where he purports to have based his senior thesis on a theory of good grooming entitled ”Magenta and You: Think About It.” B+

MY WB POPULAR SITE
(www.angelfire.com/bc2/Popular)
The WB network’s sleeper hit about the frictions between high school dorks and divas is paid erratic tribute at this fan’s Web shrine. The illogical, headachy design (blue type on a black background) does nothing for the full locker’s worth of photos of each cast member (including actual episode stills), the concise episode guide, or the extensive Popular links. The site might be wise to take some beauty tips from the show’s lovelies. C+

MTV’S HOUSE OF STYLE
(www.mtv.com/mtv/tubescan/hos)
Factors like vapidly minimalist design (think a disembodied blue torso floating on a blue plane), paired with uninspired content (tired info on the MTV Movie Awards and Spring Break 2000), make MTV’s official site for its long-running trend showcase about as current as a ratty pair of gym socks. Sure, you can find pictures of Lil’ Kim’s favorite swimsuits, but don’t plan on buying anything — the designers aren’t credited. The slide show of the fall 2000 ”fashion situation” features quickie reviews of a few designers’ trends as well as hazy runway shots. Actually, if you come here looking for fashion guidance at all, the closest you’ll probably get is that naked blue torso. D

MORK AND MINDY
(www.torget.se/users/s/swes/mork)
This Swedish fan’s retro-cool tribute — which borrows extensively from The Official Mork & Mindy Scrapbook — focuses on the more irreverent aspects of the ’80s alien-meets-girl comedy. For the child who has everything, print out the M&M egg mobile. Or consult the six-step guide to the Mork handshake (Step 1: ”Be sure each person has a hand to shake. Preferably a hand should have five fingers”). For the true devotee, there’s a glossary of Mork’s native tongue. Speaking of which, we think this site is quite durkiss — which to you earthlings translates as ”a lively time, packed with a grabable gusto in sight.” A-
