  1. To dog owners--I have a puppy question

    That's the golden retriever in her. Goldens are notoriously mouthy. They will "mouth", but have very soft mouths and usually aren't destructive. Just make sure she has ample toys she can play with. It sounds like your puppy is only playing with what she is supposed to, so no problem. On the exercise front, get used to them having a LOT of energy, especially as puppies. 2-3 miles per day should be more than enough. Also a good fetch session during the day. Not sure about the poodle half, but golden retrievers can't get enough of that. Just make sure the puppy also gets enough rest and recuperation for her growing body. She's 7 months, so not too young anymore. I'm assuming she's a Velcro dog, so she'll do whatever you are willing to. Probably loves the water too. TLDR, everything sounds completely, adorably normal.
  2. You seem to enjoy the hard science of The Expanse. If you haven't already watched it, I would recommend The National Geographic Society's 6-part Mars series from a few months ago. http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/mars/
  3. March Reading 2017

    Fred Anderson's A Crucible of War: The Seven Years' War and the Fate of Empire in British North America, 1754-1766. Excellent history and Anderson can write.
  4. Legion (FX's Marvel tv series) [SPOILERS]

    I have to laugh at Cary looking more an more beat up in every scene since Kerry's been fighting the last two episodes.
  5. Anyone else think of Aliens when the Martians were dropping to Earth?
  6. Legion (FX's Marvel tv series) [SPOILERS]

    The revelation of David's past was completely telling and not showing, but the way the showrunners went about telling the viewer worked for me. The blackboard lecture was creative with his rational mind helping him figure it out. Also, David's rational mind being British, haha. @IamMe90 , I enjoyed the episode, but understand your opinion. Some aspects of the episode seemed rather straightforward and others a bit confusing. I'm chalking that up to differences between David's rational mind and all his irrational minds. Doesn't work consistently in all cases, namely Oliver, but works for most. The name drop of the villain is obscure for non comic book readers, but the explanation of David's past makes the name irrelevant. You only need to know the villains past with David. I also loved David giving us a glimpse of what he is capable of. And Oliver is awesome. Barbershop quartet
  7. Watcha Watching? Tell me everything.

    Damn, too many shows are competing on Wednesdays. I really wish so many of my favorites weren't crammed into Wednesday nights. They are now more stacked than Sundays for me.
  8. Iron Fist [SPOILERS - after page 3]

    Damn, I was really looking forward to this one. Well, at least I won't be tempted to restart my Netflix account before May.
  9. Skeleton Island and its back story(whether bs or not) were terrific, so atmospheric. Good to hear about Avery and Gates again. I knew Flint was bullshitting when he talked about how important Madi was. Haha, that straight face he gave Silver while delivering the lies. I realize the plot requires it, but why didn't Silver simply send men after Flint and Dooley when Israel Hands first showed him they were making off with the gold? It's funny that Israel Hands is the most honorable character in the show. Only one crown indeed. Damn it, Max. All that build up just for you to deny Guthrie for love? FFS, I was actually starting to enjoy her arc, as unbelievable a character as she is. The plot armor got her this far. She could at least carry out the most interesting story she's had for a long time. Next week looks fantastic.
  10. Tell Me About A Great Biography You've Read.

    I read David Hackett Fischer's biography of Samuel de Champlain, Champlain's Dream, last year and loved it.
  11. The Leftovers

    New trailer
  12. Watcha Watching? Tell me everything.

    Hap and Leonard season 2. James Purefoy and Michael Kenneth Williams are great together. "TJ on top!"
  13. But Cara's character(the head of security, no less) knew Dawes was trying to enlist help in securing the nukes since at least the last episode when he tried to get her on his side. I initially thought she may be working with him. And Dawes was able to escape with two ships. I could understand the one slip up, but not the second. Considering how many belters work on Tycho, you'd think security would be tighter with the increased threats.
  14. Security on Tycho is absolute trash. Cara Gee, however, was fantastic this episode. The spacing was an excellent scene.
  15. Legion (FX's Marvel tv series) [SPOILERS]

    She's felt like the protagonist the past few episodes at the very least. Perhaps David is affecting her subconscious and guiding her towards saving them all? I had to wonder after tonight's episode whether all of the characters are simply inventions of David. Well other than Lenny/King. This is a mind fuck. I love that Oliver seems to be aiding everyone. Multiple contradictory thoughts in my mind concerning the show, but loving it. Yes, Aubrey Plaza continues to amaze me. She is quickly becoming the best part of this show which is probably my favorite current series along with Black Sails.
