Damages

I'm only into the fourth ep of the first season but this is an intriguing, somewhat bizarre law/crime series. (I keep reading that it can be hard to follow, but, really, it's not.) It's certainly got my interest for now, I'll have to see if all the [more]

Re: Program Interface Won't Display w/Ext HD Powered

Btw, this only happens when I start the program up. If the program is already running when I power up the hd there is no problem.

Program Interface Won't Display w/Ext HD Powered

I have had some bizarre computer issues over the years but this has to be one of the strangest. I just bought a Seagate 4 TB external hd, connected to my desktop via USB 3.0. When the ext hd is powered up a stock charting program I have called [more]

Re: Season 9 Marathon This Weekend!

Done. Good stuff. Though I'm sorry it was an abbreviated season it sure did make for a much tighter storyline, without all the annoying, boring filler of previous full seasons. (The plot holes I can deal with but having one computer analyst [more]

Re: Jack is Back

Watched the first two eps. Glad to see it's still as silly and cartoonish as ever. My favorite scene so far was the drone attack at the end of ep 1. The conversation went something like this:

Drone guy: "Captain! You've got to get away [more]

Re: An Open Letter

Ha! That was hilarious. It reminds me of that AOL recording that was pretty famous several years ago where the CS rep just went on and on and on. It was insane.

To Time Warner Cable: When I called to downgrade my internet service your CS rep asked "What's the reason you'd like to downgrade your service, sir?" Seriously? The reason? Like I have to justify this to you? Like it's any of your [more]

Re: Season 9 Marathon This Weekend!

Hmmm, well, to each his own. I've always hated cliffhangers, both content-wise and because they're gimmicky. I also like marathoning because the story "flows" much better.

Re: Season 9 Marathon This Weekend!

TV has gotten so great over the last few years that I now watch more tv than movies and I pretty much marathon everything. Since there's so much great stuff I always have plenty to watch while I'm waiting for another series to finish its season. For [more]

The White Queen

Saw this as one of the Emmy noms for best mini-series and thought I'd check it out. I don't know how historically accurate it may be but it's a lot of fun if you like this sort of thing. It's a hoot watching all these rich, privileged folk, who have [more]

Sabotage

My vote for worst movie of the year, if not of the decade. It does, however, have one hilarious line that is such a classic howler it's practically worth sitting through the movie just for that moment:
Arnold Schwarzenegger is a DEA agent, his [more]

Re: THIS begins this Sunday on FX .. (!!!)

Agreed. Each was not as good as the previous one, but still pretty darn good overall. The first one, the beginning with the plane especially, was just great.

It was an excellent book trilogy, hope the tv series lives up to it.

Re: “Snowpiercer” Is the Movie of the Ye

Snowpiercer is certainly entertaining, but it's utterly, completely ridiculous. Nothing, not a single scene or concept in the entire film, makes even a lick of sense. It's a fun, bad movie. The fact that critics are falling all over themselves [more]
