  • @emnofseattle You always present your arguments as though you're springing some kind of gotcha surprise. I always assumed there was no burglary - the woman was clearly in some kind of psychotic state. Still doesn't warrant murdering her within minut…
  • Ok I'm having trouble with the quoting feature...  But at any rate, this finale just falls apart for me, I loved last season and the season before it but at some point this season it's like Varga has just BS'd so much, he plays it both ways all the…
  • @Shum Okay...
  • Dr Horrible is entertaining, but I am that one person in the world who can't stand NPH. His smugness irks me no end.
  • Depends on the audience. I have drastically curbed cursing in front of my daughter, and at work.  Otherwise, fuckity fuck fuck fuck.   When my daughter was very young (like 4) I was taking her somewhere and got stopped by a train.  It was one of tho…
  • Speak to me at the end of any work day...
  • Plough through - it's definitely worth it!
  • In the beginning there's a lot of political wheeling and dealing with a bunch of various characters, and it's not really clear who is who and how they relate to Nucky. I found it confusing. For me, it kicked off about halfway through the first seaso…
  • @MrX Omg I had no idea they were making another season! I love pretty much everyone in it and I'll watch anything that involves Paul Rudd, so I'm in.
  • Although there were elements of this season I reallly liked, overall I found it a bit meh. The main story of the business takeover was lacklustre, and I really found it hard to watch the increasingly disgusting Varga.
  • Oh, and "How Did This Get Made" is the definitive bad movie podcast. That used to be my favourite podcast, but the live ones are insufferable and they're nearly all live these days. And the ads are getting ridiculously long. I love the live ones.…

  • @LordBy As a non-American, I have a question. If Emergency is free, does that mean people use it for non-emergencies? And if that's the case, are they seen, or turned away, or just charged a fee? How does that work? It seems you'd be getting clogged…
  • @bizmarkiefader How is there a movie and an upcoming series, then? Does he not own the rights to his characters?
  • It's probably my favourite show ever, though it did take me a while to get into it. Glad to hear you're digging it so early. :-)
  • @emnofseattle I didn't say I didn't believe you. I said you're not presenting relevant comparisons. A couple of citizens on a crowded train and a policeman caught in the mayhem of a terrorist attack are not comparable situations to two supposedly tr…
  • He's one of those weirdly mannered and overwrought actors that I dislike - in the pile with Meryl Streep, Al Pacino, Jack Nicholson, Dustin Hoffman and Calculon. He can go - that old timey ACTING is tiresome to watch.
  • (maybe if the liberal socalists in Seattle would stop spending money on having a climate change office or an official city poet both of which they really have and fund, they'd have the funding to care for a basic ministerial function like adequately…
  • Considering those were Good Samaritans and not police I don't know what point you're trying to make since they wouldn't have had access to a taser or baton anyways. I don't think anyone disputes the fact that knives are dangerous we're disputing the…
  • #YayHoward! That was a beautiful moment.

  • @MFG Chuck did some awful things, and in some ways I'm very much on the #FuckChuck bandwagon, but I never believed he was faking his illness. He was very troubled. That said, he was also a really shitty person and though he didn't deserve to die, …

  • @emnofseattle Well, the purpose of a taser is to disable someone without killing them (though of course, they have been known to cause death), so in that sense, yes - I stand by what I said. Two cops - one suspect. Two supposedly trained to deal wit…
  • I'm waiting for the articles about how he was a nice guy, driven to extremism by unemployment, lone wolf with mental health issues, blah blah blah...
  • @emnofseattle Police are not social workers, but they should certainly be trained to handle volatile situations without turning to shooting as their immediate solution. By all accounts this shooting happened within minutes of them entering the prope…
  • "She was also screaming about her kids morphing into wolves." Wtf? That is a massive indicator of some kind of delusional psychosis. So it's okay to just shoot someone who's clearly severely mentally ill? What a world.
  • I read the book before I saw the movie (both years ago when the movie came out), and I seem to recall the book ending was much more ambiguous about Teddy's outcome. Has anyone read it more recently and can confirm this or do I just have a terrible m…

  • Ok as a non US-er, I will chip in. WE ARE ALL DOOMED. Sorry. Only the French results are (mildly) positive. But Le Pen is up 50% on her dad, and Macron is completely an unknown. If he fails I fear for the worst. At least in the UK the UKIP nutters …
  • I already mentioned it in your other thread, but Answer Me This is a a good one. I also like Picturehouse Podcast (film reviews and interviews), though its release schedule is sporadic. NPR's Pop Culture Happy Hour can be good, but it disappears u…
  • How short? Answer Me This is usually 40 mins or so - people send in questions and two posh Brits answer them. One of the posh Brits also has an interesting news discussion show (UK-oriented news mostly, of course) called The Week Unwrapped, which is…
  • Oh, I'm not blaming anyone in particular, @davemcb - it's not like I didn't weigh into it myself. It's just one of those topics that takes over everything. :-/
