Re: 2000 Kids Separated in Last 6 Wks

So some of these immigrants are fleeing countries where violent gangs force the sons into the gang and the daughters are kidnapped and put into the sex trade. The families get here and have their children taken away from them and the kids are kept in [more]

Re: Best Series' Finales

You should watch it from the start. And as someone who appreciates great tv I will echo the sentiments of others - YOU MUST WATCH THE WIRE! Now! Don't even finish reading this messa

Re: BR 2049 - Ending Explained

Did the ending need to be explained?

I thought it was a masterpiece, one of THE great sci-films.

General Thoughts on the Game

I've been watching some past, classic seasons of Survivor lately, my favorites are the R. Hantz, Parvatti seasons, and then the seasons of the last few years, not including this last season, which had some great moments but overall was only [more]

Re: GoT Prequel? No Thanks.

Are we going to actually get his ending? As I understand it, last season wasn't even from the books because he hasn't gotten that far. I thought it was ok, but definitely didn't have the wild flights of imagination that Martin brought to [more]

Re: The Good Fight - Season 2

Finished today. Turned out to be an ok-to-good season, not great. Wayyyy too much obsession with Trump. Listening to the characters act as mouthpieces for the Kings' political views (even if I agree with them) is just so obvious and became very [more]

The Good Fight - Season 2

Marathoning it this wknd. 2 eps in, looks to be another great season. Witty dialogue, believable characters, interesting court cases and of course, all kinds of goings-on at the firm. A really fun show and a worthy sequel to the original series. [more]

Re: RIP: Joseph Campanella

Ah, I remember him well. He must have guest-starred on just about every tv series during the 60's and 70's.

Re: not even playing for 3rd

Gak! Dom and Wendell still around. This season makes me nuts. I don't think I've ever rooted so hard for two likable players to be voted out. It's usually the jerks. But I want these two out because it's been so obvious for so long [more]

Re: Designated Survivor and The Crossing Cancelled

I'm beginning to think of network cancellations as self-fulfilling prophecies. I said in a thread earlier that they'd probably cancel The Crossing and the plot would never be resolved. Maybe that's why it had low ratings, maybe everybody [more]

Designated Survivor and The Crossing Cancelled

The only two network shows I watch (besides Survivor). Not because they were quality tv, by any means, but I enjoyed the silliness of both, sometimes even bad tv can be fun tv. I was watching The Crossing each week, doesn't seem much point now. [more]
