  • The show is pretty remarkable to watch, but I hope this is not going to turn into some sort of tragic "if only David had trusted his friends and explained more of what was happening" thing.  
  • Most unrealistic thing about this episode: Distance Io to Earth: 390 million miles. Speed of light: 186,282 miles per second 390 million / 186,282 = 2093 seconds 2093 second / 60 seconds= 34.89 minutes for light (or say..... super facetime waves…
  • "There is a mole at the very top of the Circus, Jim" " He's less pleased though, with our progress with our American cousins. You see, in their eyes... You're still a leaky ship." The Smiley miniseries and the books are excellent as well. king…
  • I had similar feelings about Isle of Dogs, but definitely not Grand Budapest Hotel.johnnytruant said: This movie was fine. The stop-motion/art was cool and at times stunning, but it seems to take priority over story and character. I've had th…
  • I happen to be reading the gigantic Chris Claremont X-Men Compendium 1, and I had just read Charles Xavier's first contact with Amahl Farouk in Cairo.  They cribbed a lot from that 1978-1979 comic book for the psychic battle.  Was pretty cool.  If t…
  • This is my elliptical watch.   Got to finish Longmire Season 5 first....
  • So then the general thread just show spoilers?  
  • Listened to the podcast.   I thought the actress playing Chrisjen is one of the better things about the show, actually.  
  • You know that mediocre generic sound you've been looking for? Well, listen to this!
  • Pocket Casts is very good, I like their speed up and eliminate silence algorithms and skipping intros etc...  I've apparently listened for 33 days, 4 hours since January 11 2017 and saved 20 days and 9 hours using time saving techniques (Almost 13 d…
  • Bosch is coming back on Amazon this month.
  • Isle of Dogs Beautiful stop motion animation and art design.  The plot and story is inventive, interesting and fun, it's just missing a little bit of something to really kick it to the next level to me.  Very allegorical movie.....
  • I'm not ready for the slide of the Orioles into irrelevancy.... One more year of competing would be nice, but everybody's about to leave next year, I hope they don't screw up the trade deadline.  I hope it's clear what the front office should do by …

  • Are you guys even trying?
  • Ugh, I need to watch this.  First exposure to him was the Gary Shandling Show, on Fox I think.  And then his Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee was really quite sad and touching even before he died....
  • I would be that Messenger gets all your phone metadata. JaimieT said: Good for you. I have Messenger on my phone but not the Facebook app. I'm hoping that delivers me from some data collection... but of course Facebook gets all my computer …
  • Finally saw this. Now, I’ve read the first two collected volumes of Ta Nehisi Coates’s Black Panther run and I don’t particularly like them, but I’m surprised no one in this thread has brought up the major issue he deals with over and over in those …
  • I have hopes that the name LaserDefender means it's a version of the old arcade game Defender which I love.  But it doesn't seem to load in chrome, even in incognito mode with extensions dismounted.  Anyone have that problem?
  • That's what I suspected from the start, and became more likely when the physicist was turning  into a plant. I wasn't sure about this part. I assumed she must have turned into one of the plant people, but then Lena said they grew that way, whi…
  • The Schezuan sauce meme may have poisoned the well....
  • I found some of my MTG cards.  Alpha and Beta sets have really taken off in value, the Beta lands are like $10 a piece.  So the truly limited stuff they did has beaten inflation by quite a bit.  I guess it just helps to get lucky on getting in on th…
  • Sounds like  I need to go find my boxes of Beta MTG cards. Who knew my Nobel Hierarchs from my obscure Bant deck from my glory days of MTG would be worth over 100 dollars while my foiled Nicol Bolas planeswalker that I shit my pants when I open…
  • Tough to tell.  I gave away a bunch of Elric pocket books a few years ago when I moved, then I decided I wanted them after all and they're worth 3x cover price now.  Apparently there haven't been many pocket books versions of Elric made.  Other old …
  • With the history of amazing front office moves an astute team building by my Redskins, something tells me the Vikings are in trouble now!
  • Remember your origins Highlander. Remember.... the planet Zeist.  Natter Cast said: The problem was they tried to turn it into a franchise. The parts that focus on showing Connor's life in the past (Revolutionary War, WWII, etc) are okay. Wh…
  • But there can be only one. 
  • This has got to be the best example of cosmic horror that I have seen on screen. The philosophy is that there is no mystery to solve. It just happened; planet cancer that came like a bolt out of the sky.  It doesn't make sense. They're not going to …
  • There's also some War Against the Chtorr in there with the alien ecology, body horror and mutations.  Waiting 25 years now for book 5, George R.R Martin is a piker....
