  • Burned through all 5 seasons of Bosch in the last month and half. Very enjoyable ld-school hardboiled detective show, really well made and looks great, and very meme-able, worth watching for Lance Reddick's facial expressions alone.
  • Woj with a big one! https://twitter.com/wojespn/status/1140023139142971392
  • Was sad to see Klay go out, he was having a game.
  • Man you Canadians do get salty over the USWNT.  Deadspin with the sweet burn: "Considering Canada haven’t scored 13 goals in their last three World Cups combined, and have only ever made it out of the group stage at this tournament twice, it’s n…
  • What grinds my gears is that every time I see this thread in the forums I read the title in a Peter Griffin voice.
  • Goal differential matters in group play and seeding for the knockout rounds, why would they let up?
  • Travis said: We were only in Boston one time for a week, and I bet it's one of those things that's total touristy-ness and overrated through the eyes of locals, but goddamn those cannolis at Mikes were amazing. I thought about having them shi…
  • In Boston there is a solid seafood shack (caveat - it's been a long time since I've been there, might want to check if it's still up to snuff) near where the ships dock - Yankee Lobster. Good lobster roll and fried clams. It's also right near Harpoo…

  • Season 4 will be the last season  . Sad that we only get 13 more episodes but it sounds like it's the right call. https://twitter.com/nbcthegoodplace/status/1137180211798142976
  • Heading to Tahoe area for a wedding in August - we've never been so looking forward to that! Anyone have food and/or family-friendly activities around the north side?

  • Michelle said: Also @Chinaski, if you have a Roku or similar device, you can get the NBC Sports streaming channel and watch the A’s games live. (you probably already knew that though, but at least you can cut the cord and still see the games…

  • Chinaski said: you guys rock.  i did a search for 'cord' and there was several threads with feedback and tips on cord cutting. i'm at wits end with DirectTV (they've been so bad ever since ATT bought em) and am finally cutting the cord. i've …

  • The Terror just was released on Hulu if you never caught that. Has some other recent-ish seasons of good cable shows too, such as Fargo, Atlanta, Killing Eve, Legion, etc. if you need to catch up on those. They also have a very solid bench of comedi…
  • Caught up with the Storm of Spoiler rewatch through this week (watched Walkabout and White Rabbit) - season 1 is so f-ing good guys! I remember seeing Walkabout the first time and the Locke twist being such a great reveal. Locke is one of the all ti…

  • rhcoop said: It's kind of like Venom.  Reviewers hated it, fans loved it.  It's almost like reviewers will sharpshoot any super hero film that isn't a MCU production.  Haven't seen Venom so can't comment on that, but here are the non-MCU …

  • Last year I signed up for a renewable program through my utility. Basically bought in (no up-front cost) to large-scale solar and wind projects in the state); it costs me about 4 cents per kWh, but I get renewable credits back, so it nets out to lik…

  • rkcrawf said: @EMAW42 @MrX I saw the series about 3-4 years ago, and barely remember how it ended. Is a rewatch of the series necessary/recommended? Not necessary, but recommend if you have time. I didn't, so ended up just reading Wikipedia s…
