    Game of Star Wars: The Final Hope

    Damn, they got me! Fucking good example of how dangerous Disney owning everything is...it's impossible they don't have some kind of bait to lure in anyone.

  3. Anyone seen this? Poor Finn, he's stuck in the 80's, though for me it would be a dream come true.

    Back to my well, but I really don't know who can put things in better perspective:

    Best Sitcom Episodes Ever

    Seeing so many Parks and Recs mentions (which I totally agree with) I suppose this is as good a place as any for this:

    Best Sitcom Episodes Ever

    Most of the ones mentioned here, great episodes!!! Taxi - "What does a yellow light mean?" "Slow down!" "Whhhhhhhhat doesssssss aaaaaa yellllllllowwwwww lighttttttt meannnnnnn?" Latka's cookies episode Latka's split personalities episodes Latka the general All in the Family: Archie meets Sammy Davis Jr. Edith goes through the change. MASH - Col. Blake's Oak Desk "You know what this desk is made of?" "Oak?" "No, oak." The one where Harry Morgan (before he was Col. Potter) plays the insane general. The one where they made Leslie Nielson crazy. The one with Captain Tuttle. The one where they trick Frank into thinking there's gold by their camp. The one with Trapper and the boxing match and the ether. Night Court: The battle of pranks episode between Harry and another judge. The ones with Brent Spiner. 3rd Rock From The Sun: The one where Dick and Sally trade places. The one where Dick goes on an airplane for the first time "Oh my God, there's something on the wing!" subsequent one where William Shatner shows up as The Big Giant Head: They pick him up at airport: BGH: "I could have sworn I saw something on the plane..." Dick: "Same thing happened to me!!!"

    U.S. Politics: Moscow Mitch

    Can't help posting this guy, his perspectives are just so sharp, I hate the reasons why he's had to say this but I love the way he said what needed to be said.
  9. About 6 months back I renegotiated my cable package with my provider - Xfinity/Comcast. The offered me free HBO for 1 year and free for 2 years, Starz, Showtime, and Netflix. I took the deal. I was all ready subscribed to Netflix but Xfinity took over paying for it with a minimum of hassle. Me too. But I'm not a going on vacation type person or going out much at all, never go out to eat, go to concerts, sporting events, etc. I like to go out to movies once a month, that's about it. I'd go to Harrington Casino and Atlantic City more often if I had the opportunity and I enjoy seeing shows when I'm there, but as an introvert I still like being social, but I require much more time alone than I spend out in the world to recharge myself, I get physically ill if I don't do this. I know, I digress, just trying to say I feel no guilt for my television/internet/streaming viewing as it's usually what I'd be happiest doing in any case and I'm not going to feel ashamed for finding contentment. I'm not happy with Disney owning so much media and everything, somewhat concerned about it really, and I don't care for much of their business practices, but everybody has their price. With the Disney+ and Hulu (I couldn't care less about ESPN) deal...I all ready have Hulu (with ads), so I've decided if Disney offers all the Star Wars movies and shows, all (or at least most) of the MCU movies and shows including a lot of the Marvel movies, programs, and animated programs not part of the MCU, plus all (or most) of the Disney animated movies and Pixar movies...then they've got my money. So far what Disney+ is saying they will be offering doesn't have enough of what I want, but I expect their catalog to expand and I'll keep an eye on it.

    u.s. politics: sundowning on the american empire

    Beau of the Fifth Column He used to be in the military and he also used to train police in advanced tactics. He quit his job because he couldn't abide the current policies of law enforcement and advocates strongly for police institutional reform. As a YouTube journalist he usually makes a 5 - 10 minute video once or twice a day on current events focusing on politics, giving his left leaning viewpoints, sometimes he makes longer videos like his ones on law enforcement. He always seems to make great points and I highly recommend watching and even subscribing to him. ETA: His YouTube page: https://www.youtube.com/user/unvoicedproject/featured

    u.s. politics: sundowning on the american empire

    Yeah, all you have to do is listen and realize for most people who aren't white, straight, and a natural born U.S. citizen it's not paranoia it's legitimate fear. I don't throw the term "white privilege" around lightly, I know it exists though and a big one is feeling confident in being able to dismiss the well founded fears others are crying out about as paranoia or blowing things out of proportion. People are afraid for their freedom and even their lives for good reasons and the least we can do is believe them when they point it out. So then, No?

    u.s. politics: sundowning on the american empire

    After the title of last thread, this one should have been "Kamala Chameleon". Anyway, I'm still dealing with living in Trump country, people telling me what Trump said about Baltimore was not racist, what Kamala Harris said about needing more black voices was racist, and I'm disheartened as Hell. I need to pick my battles or I'm not going to make it to the election and this sucks.

    Recursion By Blake Crouch

    I had the exact same thoughts! I will check out Wayward Pines soon.

    Recursion By Blake Crouch

    From Amazon: From Deadline.com: https://deadline.com/2018/10/netflix-movie-tv-series-shonda-rhimes-matt-reeves-blake-crouch-novel-recursion-1202476097/ My take: This book is totally awesome. I mean I was literally awed reading this! It's got 4 and 1/2 stars on Amazon and I'd say it deserves it. If you like books like Replay by Ken Grimwood, The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North, Life After Life by Kate Atkinson, The Middle Falls Series by Shawn Inmon, The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, as well as other works by Blake Crouch (I've never read his Wayward Pines trilogy but I did read his book Dark Matter and I strongly recommend that one as well) then this book is for you. My opinion is, if you like any of those other books, just jump in and start reading and you'll enjoy it best that way. However, if you need a little more, I'll put this in spoiler tags but they are not really spoilers except in explaining a bit of the book's plot mechanics: So as a lover of time travel tales, this one gets my highest recommendation.
