  • Cory said: How anyone can take the side of the players is beyond me.  By not taking the side of the players doesn't mean you're taking the side of the owners though.  I always take the side of the fans and say both the owners and players can …

  • Pretty sure ours was: Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Without free access to a babysitter we don't make it out to the movies very often. It usually has to be something I really want to see, and Tarantino usually qualifies. 
  • Also one of my favorite movies. Love that the guys are doing a cast on it!
  • It's funny how we always blame the players but not the owners. You're asking the players to take all the risk and a pay cut? Get real. I'll side with the people who mostly came from poor families and have a very limited window to earn a living (if t…

  • OMG! I can't believe the 3rd season is going to be coming out next month! EXCITED! 
  • If you like strategy games then I'd recommend Three Moves Ahead. They usually pick a strategy game to focus on for an entire episode. Occasionally they'll do a review that's more general, like the decade of strategy games where they looked at all of…
  • Garland is the perfect writer/director to me. His subject material is right up my alley and everything he's done is thought provoking. That's exactly what I want in my entertainment. I liked Ex Machina and Annihilation, but I thought Devs was even b…
  • How are you guys managing to get antibody tested? I haven't looked into it too hard, but the two times I've asked about it the provider didn't say it was an option. 
  • I love this series. My enjoyment of basketball began with the 90s Knicks. Those Bull's teams tormented me just about every year. Watching some of those highlights opens up old wounds, god damn you Charles Smith. Seeing Ewing always brings a smile to…
  • Underwood said: I've been on a True crime podcast binge the last couple of months. Some of the better listens were - - Cold - Over My Dead Body - Slow Burn (both Seasons, the 1st is on Nixon/Watergate, 2nd is on Bill Clinton/ Whitewater/M…
  • - belief that what is happening is unique to your society/social system (America is middle of the pack in most dimensions when it comes to this virus).”                               - Zaid Jilani Is this a joke? 6x as many cases as anywhere…
  • MichaelG said: Florida makes me sad. The USA makes me angry.  I echo this feeling. It really has been a disaster for the US. You would think a global pandemic might be the one time people would actually come together, but no. It got even w…
  • bizmarkiefader said: I dunno if other people disagree but I think if you aren't sold by the end of the second episode I don't know if there's anything that's going to change your mind. It never felt slow to me, I was gripped the whole series.…

  • A guilty pleasure of mine. I've watched everything so far. I probably wouldn't recommend this show to anyone but I've enjoyed it so far.

  • I found this of Reddit last week and thought it was funny: https://reddit.app.link/mYxK7O4gI5 Agree 100% with Chamath. The system is rigged for the rich. We created a socalist system for the rich and wealthy, but not the poor. For the poor and midd…
  • If I wasnt on mobile I'd write a long post with my thoughts. I watched episode 7 the other night and was blown away. There is so much going on with this show. The finale should be crazy.  I'm definetly off team Forest and Katie. They either believe…

  • lengmo said: Only problem with the show is you have to be careful to not look away for more than 15-20 minutes or you might miss something. I don't have any problems with the pace. I think it actually adds to the mood of the show. The lon…

  • Episode 6 was fantastic. I'm really interested in what they didn't tell Lilly, trouble for sure. I love how slow yet tense this show is. This is best series on TV right now.

  • CapeGabe said: Doctor_Nick said: Yes, the first book is one of the great works of science fiction for sure.  YMMV on the others, I read Dune Messiah and that was enough for me.   Many think Messiah is the weakest of the originals. I…
  • Man, I really should reread the series. I loved the first two, but by the final two books I'm not sure I understood what was going on. I think the older me might be more perceptive.  As a side note, I'm very excited for the upcoming movie. It's bei…
  • My grandfather was a blue collar worker (sanitation, parks cleanup etc.) and always voted Republican. As a kid I always thought the Republican party cared about the working class. What a sweet summer child I was. 
  • Hatorian said: I’m not saying 5% is low. I’m actually saying that’s pretty scary.  Hard to tell right now because of how many people have gone untested. Also, the death rate jumps drastically once the medical system gets overwhelmed. Emerg…
  • Really sorry about your job @JaimieT. Let us know if there is anything we can do to help.  Update on my health. We're in day 18 of our quarantine. Week two I developed some chest pains, started on my left and then right side. Luckily, breathing nev…
  • Episode 4 was excellent. This show is sooooo good. I love how quiet and lingering it is. They do an excellent job building tension in just about every scene. I'm always worried that someone is lurking in the shadows of some inevitable doom is right …

  • US now has the most cases in the world. That's saying something being on how hard it is to actually get a test for some of us.  But our president said it would soon disappear right? lol
  • Denmark's stimulus plan: https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2020/03/denmark-freezing-its-economy-should-us/608533/ Basically, if a company keeps a worker on the payroll rather than lay them off, the government will pay 75% of their salary. …

  • I agree with all the above. I liked it, but nothing that grabbed my attention. I'll continue to watch week to week as long as it holds my attention. 
  • My wife is getting better, but both my kid and I have fevers. Wish there was a way to get tested, but our state took the stance of only testing those who end up hospitalized. I understand the logic, but not knowing really sucks.
