Re: Politics & Current Events

"Cadet Bone Spurs" is pretty solid. Will Trump take the bait and call her Stumpy? You know he's just dying to.

Re: #MeToo

Always seemed like a douche to work with. That's one hell of an understatement. He is legendary for treating his st...

Re: ♫ Star Wars, nothing but...Star Wars! ♫

yes they do. And this is a weird ass thing to be hung up on. yeah, what a weirdo, wishing the two main protagonists spent more than 4 minutes in the movie together. Rey pretty much had to have the dynamic with Luke in this movie. Her story here with Kylo was great. Somehow shoehorning Finn into tha...

Re: ♫ Star Wars, nothing but...Star Wars! ♫

Remember Empire Strikes Back where Luke was barely on screen with Han/Leia? Just a bit on Hoth, and a bit after his battle with Vader on Cloud City. They're all on Hoth together for like 30 minutes. And if you start at the moment Leia sees Luke in the hallway, they're probably on Bespin together an...

Re: ♫ Star Wars, nothing but...Star Wars! ♫

I think they might have been better served reuniting Rey and Finn earlier in the movie than they did. As it was constructed, TLJ did nothing to develop the relationship between those two core characters. It's exactly where it was at the end of TFA except for what, maybe a hint of jealousy towar...

I've only read a few pages back, but I'm surprised by the lack of criticism of this movie here. I thought it was pretty clunky and chock full of head-scratcher decisions.

Re: The Cardinals

Does anyone ever venture over to Cards talk? Every series against the Cubs, someone starts a thread about Bob Gibson taking Rizzo out for standing too close to the plate. It seems they get an almost sexual satisfaction imagining it. It's weird. It's so dumb. I mean, Rizzo got hit by a Chapman fastb...

A couple of other McCarver gems: "Lackey was run from a game last year or the year after that." The year after last year...is this year isn't it? And during a discussion of Joe Maddon: Tim McCarver: The father of actor Jack Palance used to be Joe Maddon's plumber. Go figure that out! Dan M...

Was that McCarver today who said Contreras is a "hothead" and the Cubs are "very concerned about controlling his temper" and that "it's dangerous"? The clip is on ESPN.

Fun seeing Littlefinger die, but I always thought it would be more in the spirit of the ASOIAF for Littlefinger to survive everything. To me, he was always kind of Martin's middle finger to all the fantasy tropes: he wasn't a "good" guy, he wasn't a skilled fighter, he wasn't noble born o...

Re: Game of Thrones

I really doubt any of these highly complex fan theories are going to come to fruition in the show at this point. The show is getting less complex, not more. The majority of the people watching can barely remember the characters' names, I don't think they will pick up on the subtle hints that prove ...

Re: Game of Thrones

I have to say, I didn't love that episode. I mean, dragons wrecking horsefeathers is cool to see, but some of that was just so over-the-top. The seven dudes holding off 5000 in essentially an open field was pretty silly. Giving us 4 random bearded northmen so they'd have someone to kill was a little...

Re: TV thread

i think part of what made the first series so great was the whole "i can't believe we're doing this!" vibe that it had. this season felt more like "well, we're still doing this." it kind of felt like they ran out of gags and were just being absurd for the sake of being absurd. t...

there are a lot of real historical examples of knights in full plate dying in very shallow water/mud, especially ones who fell face first and whose visors got stuck in the mud. Jamie is not in full plate in that scene from the pics I've seen. He has a breastplate, gorget, and pauldrons (the shoulder...

One hot take I'm seeing and not comprehending is the idea that despite all the hoopla, there are no stakes for the main characters since none of them have died or are at risk of dying.

Boy, this THR interview with TJ Miller about leaving SV is sure something. They say it was edited and condensed for clarity, so, holy horsefeathers, the original must have been a nightmare.

It's definitely been slow (I mean, slow even for a show that is almost all slow burn), but I'll be pretty surprised if this latest one doesn't rock your socks. I think the biggest problem with the season is how they've been trying to keep Oleg on it. I get wanting to use an actor as good as Costa R...
