  1. This is probably the one show I have never seen, but most feel like I should, because I would probably really enjoy it. I've been waiting for years for some online streaming service to pick it up so I can watch, but it still hasn't been. Does anyone know if there's a reason for that? Seems like between Amazon, Netflix, Hulu, etc., someone would pick it up and offer it for streaming.
  2. So, I just watched this whole series over the course of the last 4-5 days. Wow. That was really some great storytelling. It totally captured that "I'm so horrified, but I can't look away" feeling for me. Poor June. And Moira. And Luke. And so many, many others. I can't wait for Season 2 already. I'm glad that's going to be a thing. But, I'm really surprised there isn't more to this thread. I guess, like others have said, it's because it was a show on Hulu. That's a shame. More people should watch this.
  3. Talk about surreal. For those of you who don't know (and most people on here don't), I'm the editor of a small community newspaper. I just got John's obit in my email to be included in our next newspaper. It's a pretty great obituary, so I'll share it here. span data-node-flag="true">a John Benedict Kenady, 42, of Louisville, died peacefully on Saturday, May 27, 2017, at Baptist East Hospital, with his loving mother and family by his side. He was born in Louisville, Kentucky, on February 8, 1975. After living in Trumbull, Connecticut for several years, John and his family moved to California in 1982, where he graduated from Los Gatos High School in 1993. He served his country in the United States Navy from 1993 to 1999, and was a Gulf War veteran. He was stationed on the Destroyers USS Fife and later, the USS Cushing. He was an ET3 and served in Japan, the Persian Gulf, the China Sea and the Philippines. He later worked as a civilian for Harris Corporation in Sunnyvale, California. John is survived by his mother, Ruth Rogers Haley (Barron) of Pagosa Springs, Colorado; father, Kerry M. Kenady of Russellville, Kentucky; sister Kathy Kenady of Boise, Idaho; half sister Kary Leann Leigh (Norman) of Louisville; half brother Michael Kenady of Louisville; niece Kyla Kenady of Louisville; stepsister Sabrina Haley of Oakland, California; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Gerald and Helen Rogers, paternal grandparents, Harold and Lillian Kenady, uncle Don Kenady, cousin Joe Rogers, and nephew Michael Hardin. John had a brilliant mind and a razor sharp wit. He was fiercely loyal to his many friends, and he lived an uncensored and unapologetic life. He was a sensitive and loving soul who will be deeply missed. Cremation was chosen. A Celebration of Life was held for John on May 29, 2017, in Louisville with his family. If desired, donations in John’s name can be made to any veterans’ charity. Please honor and remember John in your own meaningful way. Read a copy of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Cheer for the Giants, Sharks, or Warriors. Take your own small personal action toward social justice. Fair winds and following seas, John. We love you.
  4. Well, shit. This is the first I've seen this thread. John's dad lives in the same small town in southern Kentucky as me. Had some minor dealings with him at one point through work. For a while, John was living here with his dad and we messaged back and forth a bit about how we should get together. But we never did. And now, that makes me sad.
  5. I think the "plot" of the season was just how spent Phillip is at this point. And Elizabeth too, to a lesser degree. Phillip is just worn completely thin. I felt terribly for him at the end of the episode last night. But overall, it was mostly a penultimate season. It's just set the stage for all the plot threads to come together next season.
  6. I'm glad I read that. I'm not sure how I feel about it... but I'm glad I read it. Real life is messy and hard and sometimes, there's no good choices. I have a hard time blaming the author and his siblings too much. Yes, they could have probably done more to help Lola. But they are themselves victims of their upbringing. They were conditioned from birth to believe that the Lola's situation was okay. Because of outside influences, they did break the conditioning of their parents somewhat... but not completely. I'd like to think I would have done more or done better if I were placed in their shoes, but I'm not sure I would.
  7. After doing some side-by-side taste tests at home, I have come to the realization that if you know what you're doing, you can find some bottom shelf (at least according to price) bourbons that are every bit as good as bottles that cost 3-4 times as much. Heaven Hill White Label is a bourbon that costs $11 at my local liquor store and I would put it up against any bourbon in the $30-$40 price range. It's plenty good enough to sip either neat or on the rocks, but at the price; if I'm in the mood for a bourbon and Coke or an old fashioned, then I don't feel bad about mixing it either. It really is the perfect everyday bourbon, IMO. The bad news is that you can't really buy it outside of Kentucky. The Heaven Hill Green Label is distributed more widely, and is essentially the same thing but just at a lower proof. (White label is 100 proof, while green label is 90.) They're both aged a minimum of 6 years, so at that price - you just can't beat them. Old Fitzgerald Bottled in Bond has become my other daily drinker. Since it's a wheated bourbon, I'll have it every once in a while instead of Heaven Hill. It costs a couple bucks more than the White Label, but at $13 it's still a steal. Makers Mark is the most popular wheated bourbon (and maybe the most popular bourbon in world) but Old Fitz BiB is every bit as good as Makers in my book. It's also bottled at 100 proof, and there is Old Fitzgerald Prime, which is bottled at 80 proof and a little cheaper. Unlike the White and Green labels of Heaven Hill, there's a big difference between these two Old Fitz varieties though. I don't like the Old Fitz Prime nearly as much. I really wouldn't recommend it.
  8. I'm sorry to see American Crime go. It was pretty good for a network drama. Actually, it was damn good for a network drama. Which is probably why it didn't catch on, I guess.
  9. Something I've always wondered in the 4-5 years I've been watching English soccer... why do they announce the team of the year with a month still to go in the season?
  10. Same. I thought the first season was great, but just didn't care for the second at all.
  11. No problem. I get it. I'm going to have a more visceral reaction to this particular type of scumbag than most people. I understand that. Opioid addiction is probably the single biggest problem in my part of the U.S. It's affected my family in particular and family members I loved and cared about are now dead because of shitstain doctors like him. Add on the fact that he is also a rapist for all intents and purposes... yeah, screw him. It couldn't have happened to a nicer person. BUT... that doesn't mean I think United and the police are absolved in any way because they roughed up a scumbag.
  12. Except that, Dr. Dao has confirmed that he was the man dragged off the flight. I meant that last line somewhat sarcastically, mostly because I was pretty disgusted by all parties involved.
  13. It doesn't excuse the way United and (more importantly) the police handled the situation. But, after finding out his background, I feel no sympathy for the scumbag doctor. Both things can be true.
  14. The way I've read it, the cap is just how much they are legally required to pay if someone does not volunteer and is bumped from a flight. I don't think there is anything that would prevent an airline from offering more to get someone to not board voluntarily.
  15. So in your professional opinion, if this were to go to civil court, what's the likelihood that the defense would be able to bring up the doctor's prior convictions at trial? Is that something that's pretty likely, or could a judge easily exclude that?
