  • A bit off-topic, but even though Outer Worlds sounds right up my alley I probably won’t ever play it because I can’t STAND first-person perspective. It gives me some kind of a weird claustrophobic/vertigo feeling that freaks me out. Bioshock Infinit…
  • I hate the concept of disney+ and had no intention of getting it, but when they announced the hulu bundle they had me. I mean, I’m already paying for that and I’m sure my sister’s kids will appreciate the disney login.    That said, Mandolorian and…
  • Personally, I think it’s completely fair to hound these guys out of the entertainment industry entirely, so I approve of all this. What I’m really not looking forward to is five-ten years from now when people turn all hipster-contrarian on this and …
  • Teresa from Concord said: So glad I clicked on this thread. The podcast sounds amazing, but it will take many hikes to catch up. I think I’ll start with Supernova I unless you all have a better suggestion.  Each series really stands alone,…
  • @Hatorian you’re definitely right, the game and league aren’t perfect, and I can see some of that already, but you have to understand that I’m from San Diego. Junior Seau’s death (RIP) made the CTE issue too real to accept the league’s still-tepid r…
  • I’d say it’s already the second biggest league/sport in the world. I can’t believe it’s not surpassed the nfl already domestically. Just a better game all around. After pondering my potential allegiances all summer, I’ve picked the Spurs to be my fa…
  • After losing my town’s nfl team, I’ve spent a few years adrift without a team or even a league to follow, but last season’s finals and all the news this offseason (as well as an unexpected obsession w 2k19) have brought me into the nba fold. The lea…
  • Dude’s comment about the potential tragedy of “so-called alt-right” people getting “lynched” is a pretty solid indicator that nothing else he says should be taken seriously or even honest. 
  • JaimieT said: ken hale said: At this point, I can’t say for sure I’ll even be keeping up with the rest, much less that it will be appointment viewing, and that’s kind of a bummer because I was really anticipating a knockout with this s…
  • The shootout at the end felt like it was tacked on so people wouldn’t think this was flat-out boring, but holy shit that was some baffling choreography and am I the only one who finds it wildly out of character for Jesse to blow those dudes away lik…
  • I’m somewhat surprised this show doesn’t generate more discussion here, but I just can’t stop thinking about it all week. Unfortunately, the more I ruminate on it the less I think I like that premiere and the less optimistic I am about the show in g…
  • There there  And thank you for not giving into temptation and spoiling us with your inside info. If it helps, to me Manhattan is the LEAST intriguing aspect of what’s been set up so far, so hopefully you will still enjoy the show?
  • Yeah, to @Doctor_Nick ‘s points, and I know it’s way too early to wonder this, but it kind of seems, thus far, like you could have told a very thematically similar story about alternate-present timelines, politics of policing, and racial tensions wi…
  • ETA: This review or comment sounds more negative than I really am about the show in general, and in hindsight I think that's just because I'm kind of nerdy about the source material and would have like to see more immediate connections. Ok, as the …
  • rkcrawf said: I'm grateful for the Instant Talk, even though I didn't catch it live. I completely misread what was going on with Don Johnson. I recognized that the "cops" on his porch were Kalvary men. But I thought they killed him, and Hoode…
  • I assume the Roman stuff is setting something up to drive next season, but why would Kendall be the fall guy? It’s got to be Greg or maybe Tom. Greg still pocketed a few documents and I got the impression when Logan told him to gtfo that he might ha…
  • Who’s the blood sacrifice? What the hell does that even mean? And what did Roman just get them into? I really don’t know where they’re going with it but this is starting to look like it’s building to some real calamity. 
  • Couldn’t be more bummed. In the back of my mind I always expected this but I was beginning to allow myself to hope. The Avengers are better and more interesting without Spiderman, nevermind that this character is a poor approximation of Spiderman.  …
  • It is a treasure.  And I know I'm being unfairly critical of Fleabag, which I'm sure is great.  I suppose it's a failure of marketing that I'm decrying.
  • Thoughts: I’m kind of inspired to actually finish Ozark now, I’m still not watching fleabag because that’s a dumbass name for a show and I still don’t have a clue what it’s supposed to be about, and the emmy’s are meaningless trash, specifically thi…
  • Evidently, I'm up to twice-annual Deadwood re-watches, because I started again this weekend, lol.  I've effused my love for this show all over these forums before, so I'll limit my praise, but every time I watch it I notice new things, like how Al h…
  • PBS is running a very good (surprise) Ken Burns documentary on the history of country music.  Sidenote, how does that guy look so relatively young in interviews? He's been doing this as long as I've been alive, it feels like.  In all, this series wi…
  • Like someone said in the other topic about this show, the sensitivity of the subject matter, based on the little netflix preview, has me reluctant to watch this, despite the universal praise I'm hearing for it.  I'll definitely remember it, though, …
  • Runnin through the house with a pickle in my mouth! Seriously, though, while watching it, I didn’t think this episode was big on laughs, but now I’ve been singing that song and breaking out in a little jig for the last several days. Great stuff. Al…
  • Yeah this got pretty uncomfortable toward the end, like the public humiliation Logan was so unused to just seeming to break him.  Not that he, or any of them, are totally undeserving.
  • Mofojones333 said: The Deuce! Hell yes, thats the one I’ve been missing! I didn’t realize it would be weekly on the tv feed.  Definitely looking forward to all those mentioned, @A_Ron_Hubbard , thanks!
  • I took a year off from season 2 for some reason before binging it last week. Such a good series, and the second season was better than the first, imo. I do wish it had a more expansive scope of the city, like how the Wire did for Baltimore, but you …
  • rhcoop said: Garthgou81 said: ken hale said: @Garthgou81 Braniac is in Superman 3.  Never forget, lol. Oh god. I can’t even consider that as a real Braniac adaptation. Though the climax of that is really frightening, or at l…
  • That’s some very insightful background info! Like I said, I don’t know that what I’ve observed is actual prejudice or something less sinister, but I can imagine tensions are different between the two populations in Mexico. 
  • It took me a while to get over the hump in mid-season 1, but once I did I've been all-in on this show.  It is very good television, overcoming all of my minor nitpicks with spectacular writing.  I agree with the apparent consensus that it would've b…
