  1. Like most, I was dissapointed with S2, but David Milch being involved with S3 would be enough to get me hyped. https://www.google.com/amp/ew.com/tv/2017/03/27/true-detective-season-3-david-milch/amp/ Let's face it, the Deadwood movie is never going to happen. He might as well help fix a series that desperately needs a return to form.

    NHL 2018-2019

    The 2018 HHoF class was announced today and to no one’s surprise Marty Brodeur will be leading the class. I know I’m biased, but to me he’s the GOAT. I won’t argue too much with anyone that puts Hasek or Roy in the top spot as you can honestly make a case for any of the three, but here’s just some of Marty’s accolades: 3-time Stanley Cup winner 4 Vezina trophies Calder trophy 10 All-Star selections 2 Gold medals Most wins for a goalie (691) Most shutouts (125)

    @12 0 5 5 Well, you guys avoided the sweep. Kind of an ugly game overall, with both goalies letting in some softies (that 3rd goal against Murray was particularly brutal). Thought the officiating was pretty bad as well. Pens got away with a too many men, and that interference call at the end was weak imo. Looked like he flopped. Oh well. Devils needed to cool off anyway after winning a couple in a row. Gotta preserve the tank lol

    True Detective Season 3 (SPOILERS)

    Looking at T Bone Burnett’s filmography, and I’m surprised he never has. Also, didn’t realize he’s worked with the Coen brothers a bunch. Colin Farrell was by far the best part of S2, and they killed his character off, so yeah, definitely don’t bring anyone else back.

    Good call. Like the casting of Michael Rooker as the main villain. He’s always great.

    I’ve always thought there should be a defensive defenseman type award. So many great stay at home defensemen get overlooked for the Norris because they don’t put up huge numbers. The fact that Scott Stevens never won one is ridiculous. Not that he was an offensive slouch. He had 900+ career points, and would have had WAY more if it wasn’t for the system the Devils played. As for the current Devils, man they are having a rough season. It’s obvious they’re in full on “Loose for Hughes” mode at this point. With Hall missing so much time, Nico Hischier has been about the only bright spot. He’s progressing nicely for all he’s being asked to do. Really good two-way player for his age.

    It’s not even the best HBO miniseries, that would be Band of Brothers.

    Basically, you want a Duncan with a TON of swagger?
  12. Not surprising coming from the people that snubbed Roger Deakins for nearly three decades...

    Star Wars Thread: I KNOW WHAT THAT IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Inside Llewyn Davis is his best role other than Ex Machina, imo. I was extremely disappointed with A Most Violet Year, and found it totally forgettable (not because of Isaac though). The HBO miniseries Show Me a Hero is worth watching.

    It really is. I thought the post-credits stuff where Jackson explained how they did it was fascinating too.

    Frank Robinson passed away at 83. One of the best baseball players of all time. Also the first black manager. http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/25946566/frank-robinson-mvp-first-black-manager-dies-83

    RIP he gave us one of my favorite scenes in anything ever.

    NFL 2019 Super Bowl: the restless shade of Mike Martz

    I’m excited. Wanted to go young and offensive minded and we got exactly that. I can see why he was a hot name (other than the success of the Rams), thought he came off quite well in his press conference.

    S2 was definitely frustrating, but you missed a great episode in Kiksuya (2x08).

    @Mark Antony you guys are getting a good one in Brian Boyle. Great character guy, and veteran leader. Doesn’t use that massive size as much as you would think, but he’s very effective on the PP screening goalies and getting tips. I’m glad he’s going to a team I don’t hate, and is an actual contender. If you guys don’t re-sign him I’d love to see the Devils bring him back.

    Watched, Watching & Rewatch Redux

    Watched a couple Netflix movies last night. First one was Velvet Buzzsaw. Didn’t care for it much. Jake Gyllenhaal’s performance was pretty funny, but that was about it. Disappointing considering it was by the same director that did Nightcrawler. The other one was Hold the Dark. Liked it much more. I remember people being very down on it here when it first came out, and it has terrible audience scores in general, but it worked well enough for me. I love movies with a snowy setting (especially horror), and I thought it was pretty atmospheric. Not great, but worth watching once.

    Yep. You’re right. So stupid having 2 teams there.

    Does anyone even show up to their games in LA? Pretty sure they were the only team with worse attendance than my Bengals this season. And our fans not showing up was understandable...
