Re: 2015-2016 college basketball

Sad I missed the game except for the 3rd overtime. Hield is ridiculous. Should be a fun game return game in Norman. If OU plays that well again, no way we'll beat them there.

Re: Star Wars Thread

Why are so many people criticizing Ford and Fisher for being old when they are old and playing old characters? Most of the bitching seems to be about Fisher, which I think is probably due to some inherent sexism. However, her "three pack a day" voice is distracting. Just doesn't sound lik...

Re: Star Wars Thread

im not going to quibble with a character being too charismatic . just roll with it Yes, I liked Finn a lot. It's a minor quibble.

Re: Star Wars Thread

Really enjoyed the movie except for every scene with Adam Driver without a helmet. Just didn't like his look, didn't like how he delivered lines and didn't buy him as a bad guy at all. Reading this thread, it appears I'm in the minority in that, though. Oh well. Still liked the film. that was the p...

Re: The General TV Thread

I know it's a toss up to be renewed/cancelled after this season, but I sure am enjoying Last Man on Earth. I like it. It was hit or miss for me in season 1, but this season has been fun. Opposite for me. Liked season 1. Two has felt very flat to me. The episode where they go looking for the bull wa...

Re: 2015 Holiday Gift Wish List

I'm having the same problem with my family. Curious to see what people are doing this year. I'm a fan of gifts that make your life easier. Debating getting something like a Roomba. I wouldn't mind one of those, but they're too expensive to ask for. That's my conundrum. Stuff that's reasonably price...

2015 Holiday Gift Wish List

My family members are huge gift givers, and every year I find it increasingly difficult to come up with things to ask for. (Generally, I just buy the stuff I want that I can afford at this point in my life.) So I figured I'd see what you folks are asking for, hoping it would inspire me. So what's on...
