Re: TV thread

A Christmas Story live was seen by 4.5 million viewers and delivered a 1.5 rating among adults 18-49. That is really, really bad. It's going to be the lowest rated tv musical since they started doing these again with Sound of Music. To compare, Grease had 12.2 million viewers and a 4.3 rating. Was ...

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

Even if the prophecy wasn't BS, we just don't know enough about Snoke to draw any kind of conclusions about him. He's an uber force powerful bad guy that somehow corrupted Ben Solo while he was at Luke's jedi academy...annnnnd that's all we know.

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

No, not Kylo/Luke. Kylo/Rey vs the Royal Guard. That was awesome. I suppose since it wasn't a head-to-head duel that it didn't register with me. Agree that ESB and even RotJ had the most memorable light saber battles. The set, atmosphere, and stakes were superior to anything in the prequels. The du...

We can assume that [spoiler]Ren’s version of who Rey’s parents are is bulls***, right? This is what I thought at first as well, but upon second viewing last night, Ren tells her to "say it" to which Rey herself actually says "they're nobody" before Ren elaborates on them bei...

I know it's not cool to like anything to do with EpI-III, but Duku's battle with Yoda was pretty good.


That's the high point of the prequels.


The Ep 1 Darth Maul fight is better, imo.

We gave it like 30 min and bailed. Yeesh.

I know there's an actual musical of this that is popular...I don't know how true the show was to it, but it certainly didn't make me wanna buy tickets.

The only part that didn't work for me was The casino part. The theme worked - both sides are trash holding the underclass, who will never be free until everything is wiped clean, down - but it seemed insanely too hijinky given that Finn and Rose both knew there was like 6 hours until all their frie...
