Re: Another 60 Minutes RIP OFF!

Try VICE. Friday nights on HBO plus specials. A very well done news show with 1-2 segments per half hour and sometimes with big hour long features. I find the reporting quite good.

GoT 5/29/16

I enjoyed the episode despite it.

I'm glad they sorted out the fleeing from the white walkers. Glad they didn't leave it at "and they escaped" from last episode.

Enough with the Sparrow, though based on what else [more]

Re: Time for a new car?

Thanks for the feedback guys.

I don't think I can do a mini-van. I know owners love them but.... a mini-van?

Re: The Night Manager - AMC

We enjoyed it in our house too however the relationships seemed to happen way too quickly. Also there were a few quirks that weren't well explained. I'm sure the book does a better job but it was a nice quick series.

Time for a new car?

Hey guys, first time here (not TMF, this board). I'm not sure what you guys do here but I'll ask the question and if I'm in the wrong spot please let me know.

So we have four in our family. I've been using a Honda Accord v6 [more]

Re: I feel so left out...

I think the biggest problem with Netflix and binge watching is that the whole cliffhanger is irrelevant.

Re: The Division is a bad game

I've had a lot of fun with The Division (PvE), but I'm glad it came free with a graphics card upgrade I bought.

Me too.

I've had some fun with the PvP too and in the Dark Zone, but it's a small MMO and it's an MMO. It may not [more]

What Jon will really have is an army of Wilders to prevent anyone from hurting him. The Wilders don't give a damn about the oath.

Dumped it based on the comments here. Haven't watched the last two episodes and thankful for that.

Thanks for saving me the time!

I'm Batman.....again

So I have finally got around to playing Batman: Arkham Knight. No technical glitches worth mentioning beyond what you would normally experience. Nothing game breaking, so they've fixed whatever was wrong.

I hate the Batmobile. The whole [more]

Re: GoT 05092016

So many questions still but we got some answers.

I'm presuming we're seeing some timelines sped up significantly while others crawl. My guess is the whole Arya timeline is taking months. For "a girl" to drop who she is is not an [more]

Game of Throne 5/1

Well, I was really rooting the the scenario in the YouTube video because it would be very interesting. Regardless, nice to see the Starks recovering. All of them (that are left).

I think I would have dropped my sword as soon as that giant [more]

Re: GoT - S6-E1 ..

My biggest complaint has to do with the Sand Snakes. They were standing on the docks in Dorne when the ship left. Yet somehow, two of them are on the ship at anchor outside King's Landing to kill Tristane? Way too much of a gap to assume they [more]

Re: A more interesting 'Jon Snow returns' theory

Oooh, that's good too.

Some people have way too much time on their hands.

Also, I think it might be a stretch to say minor things from Season 1-3 were foreshadowing Season 6+ stuff. TV is rarely planned that far ahead. Lines maybe, [more]

Re: Fear the Walking Dead - 4/10/16

I agree it's too early for the total collapse of civilization, but it's been more than a few days. They were under military protection a lot last season. Weeks would be my estimate.

Others probably weren't.

Re: The Division is a bad game

I hear you and know your frustration. Mine is different though. Mine is that progress, even in the dark zone, is PAINFULLY slow once you reach a certain level and at that level it's very hard to find something that either isn't too easy or too hard. [more]
