S26 Finale

I'm pretty happy with who won. It's hard to root against a team who seemed to really be enjoying themselves the whole race. Tyler, in particular, seemed to just be having fun most of the time.

Honestly, I don't think I disliked any team [more]

Re: Windows 10 to ship in seven different versions

It's like the Windows product manager saw the 5 (or so) of Vista and said, "More cowbell!!"

That's really kind of ridiculous.

Re: Remakes Better than the Original?

The "Judge Dredd" (Stallone/Schneider) flick I thought was really good. A few weeks spots here and there, but good. Then comes "Dredd" a couple years ago with Urban/Thirlby. Wow, really got the grit on film. Different story [more]

Re: Remakes Better than the Original?

I don't consider John Carpenter's The Thing (1982) to be a remake of The Thing From Another World (1951). The latter is plant-based life forms. The other is a life form that imitates organisms, individually down to the cellular level. Closer to a [more]

Re: Remakes Better than the Original?

And is there a difference between a remake and a reboot, as is the fashion these days?

I think that, typically, a "reboot" is starting a "franchise" over, rather than just re-doing a movie. So, "True [more]

Re: AT&T ad problem is back

Why not just use AdBlockPlus and never see ads at all?

Because as much as we hate ads, ads are what help pay for part of TMF's (and other sites') services. Without them, TMF will be forced to either go back to the pay model (which I [more]

AT&T ad problem is back

It looks like the problem of some ads (all apparently AT&T again) that prevent the page content from displaying is back.

Twitty, could you get the ad folks on it?

Thanks!

Re: "Jane" and "Last Man"

I'm assuming you mean "Last Man on Earth" as opposed to "Last Man Standing"?

I'm sticking with LMoE through the end of the season, but I doubt I'll be there for season 2.

Just caught the Trailer for this. Another reason it cannot match the original is obvious.

From what I've read, there really isn't that much CGI in the movie. Something like 80% non-CGI effects ( one source: [more]

He actually looks a bit different from when he was last on Big Bang Theory (maybe the end of last season?) and he seems to have put on some weight.

Big Bang (4/9/2015)

It looks like Wil Wheaton's been doing some eatin'. Maybe it was the thicker beard but he looked pretty chunky in the face.

Re: best way to cut cable?

I have posed this question elsewhere, how much is really saved going al la carte? The benefit of a TV provider over al la carte is in the bundling which in turn gets better deals. Out of the proposed $30-40 for Apple's streaming you are paying [more]

Re: S26 Episode 5 (4/3/2015)

These guys were just kind of boring.

And I've just realized we've reached a point in society where it's the gay couple who are the boring ones.

Re: S26 Episode 5 (4/3/2015)

They didn't show them even discuss that possibility.

I'm guessing that was editing not showing them discuss it. They may have decided that it would have taken them longer to go back and get it. Or, the one who had "given up" [more]
