  • Robert Forster died yesterday? Man, what a bummer. I loved that guy. Jackie Brown is such an underrated classic. And he passed the day El Camino was released? The world is a weird. RIP, man, you rocked in everything.
  • I know we have lawyers on the board, so I hesitate to say anything at all. But yeah, considering he was caught accessing those safe boxes, that goes outside the scope of what a lawyer would typically do. He could probably rely on the attorney-client…
  • Last week’s This American Life was all about the real story, which seems like they followed it pretty accurately. It’s worth a listen if you want to hear more about this story. 
  • Man, it is funny. I know people still really love the binge-mode. But it wore out its welcome for me a long time ago. These days I kind of love to sit and stew with a show for a week before hopping back in. If I were to binge Breaking Bad instead of…

  • PG&E is estimating my power won’t be back until Sunday night. 
  • The irony is I live in Camino, CA. 
  • Yeah, no end in sight up here. The real tragedy of this thing: Who knows when I will be able to get to El Camino.

  • Yeah, I’m positive everything in my fridge is toast at this point. The same thing happened last year when I lost power for 4-5 days. The food waste is sickening. 
  • I’m in (and work for) El Dorado County. Power has been out since about 1am. And from what I’ve read they are projecting for us between 24-48 hours. You forget how much you need this stuff until you remember that you are probably going to have to tra…

  • Man, what a nail biter of an episode. 
  • I have this really weird habit of listening to The Last Podcast... Dahmer episodes when I can’t sleep. Those three episodes are probably my favorite of theirs. Or I just find the material really intriguing. 
  • Cecily said: @neilfgks I am realllllllllly loving the idea of doing a Christmas Spooktacular some year.  It'd have to be a special occasion though, we can't just do that every year. Yeah, I think I brought this up last year actually. Ther…
  • So I started off just watching the final 14 episodes. But I knocked out the first 8 of Season Five. I was wondering how to best proceed as it seemed like I could knock out the other 8 just as quickly. I decided to go the Star Wars/Darth Vader origin…
  • We still have a couple episodes to go. I have feeling more will be revealed that may make some of Logan’s behavior make more sense. Or we could just be left in the dark as much as the kids are. We could just be seeing Logan flounder in his waning ye…
  • But at the end of the day do you want them covering something they aren't that passionate about? I've heard those podcasts before (The X-Files comes to mind, not that they didn't want to do it, but it was a disappointing show and you could tell), th…
  • It’s pretty unfun to watch Jesse right before then, when he was advocating for Mr. White to Mike. Especially knowing what was coming and knowing what a monster Walt was being to him. The last minute of real joy that he has on the show is when he thi…
  • Yeah, I just started the premiere of season 5. I figure I could manage to knock those episodes out with two weeks. 
  • Those are some great ones. Let the Right One In is a heartbreaker of a drop. Someday that one needs to be tackled. 
  • Hatorian said: Best quote in the entire series.... ”I didn’t ask to be born” I remember an episode of The Good Place Podcast, where the creator, Michael Schur mentioned he had done some reading/listening to schools of thought in the ar…
  • ken hale said: 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 approxi…
  • I saw the first two episodes. The first episode I liked quite a bit, but the second episode--while the visuals were amazing--it kind of felt like it was up its own tail. I understand that it is supposed to mimic the confusion that the main character…
  • I suppose this counts, I am seeing https://www.gameofthronesconcert.com/ on Thursday night. I am super pumped. 
  • Pumped and sad at the same time!

  • Vince, outside of being an amazing writer and show-runner has always pulled out the stops as a director. So, as interested as I am in the plot, I am really excited to see him direct this thing. 
  • ken hale said: 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. I was turned off by the name also. But then I just jumped in and forgo…
