  1. What has happened to the Oscars, this is now the 2nd or 3rd time they roll out something new, it gets a ton of backlash, and then they shelve it. Of course the idea that cinematography and editing categories would have been given out during commercials or otherwise cut down is nutty to begin with, so I wonder, who is in charge that they thought this was a good idea?

    NFL 2019 Super Bowl: the restless shade of Mike Martz

    I mean, maybe if he asked for $5million, that would be somewhat reasonable given his name recognition and supporter base, but $20 million when the rest of the players are barely making six figures is insulting and dickish. IMO.

    Because asking for $20 million in a league where everyone else is making $250K is a dick move, that's why. A move so dickish that an objective person would recognize it as such 9/10.

    Oh come on. Everyone else is making $250K, aren't they? I suspect that you know how to feel about Kaep asking for $20M, but you don't want to feel that feeling because you like him.

    I also loved the Tudors, even w/some of the historical issues, at least they were trying, LOL. For White Queen, I couldn't take anymore Margaret Beauford as a bat shit insane villain, and Richard III as a hero, so your mileage will vary depending on where you come down on Richard III I guess, minus the general silliness and ineptness of the show.

    I threw in the towel at 7, I had reached my limit. I am a sucker for Tudor period pieces, so I tried hard to stick with it, but, as someone who likes history to sort of remotely resemble history, I finally couldn't take it anymore.

    How far did you get? Are you still going, LOL? I sort of felt like there was a good show in there somewhere, trying to get out, but it couldn't get past the writing.
  8. I think you're reading too much into this. He's nutty. He has never compromised his entire life, when he loses, he always just sued someone or declared bankruptcy. And since the people around him are almost as dumb as dirt, he has no one capable of explaining to him, apparently, that the easiest thing would have been to use EO to reshuffle existing money, instead of creating a fucking constitutional crisis and setting a dictatorial precedent by declaring a national emergency. But, no, at least 75% of his base will never desert him because he's viewed as the last hope, despite that I believe, his base mostly knows he lies and is pretty unhinged.

    In response to criticisms of the series being "ahistorical", Gregory stated that "What [BBC One and Starz] wanted was not a historical series based on the documents from the War of the Roses. They wanted my take on it, so that's what they got. She should be arrested for crimes against history, or something, LOL [joking]. Yes, the time jumps were crazy, I had originally assumed it would be either a 3 or 4 year series, to get all the way to Richard III taking the throne , when I realized that they intended to cover the entire length of Edwards reign and into Richard's in 10 episodes, I realized it was going to be pretty bad. And of course, Elizabeth Woodville doesn't really age at all.

    LOL. It is still much better than The White Princess, which was unwatchable almost from the first.

    It gets much, much worse. I had to finally give up on it because the invented history was too much for me.

    The Child of Jon Snow & Daenerys

    The show has already strongly telegraphed that Dany will become pregnant, whether the timeline makes sense or not.

    True Detective Season 3 (SPOILERS)

    I agree, they made many of the same mistakes as Westworld 2 did, one timeline too many, and they inexplicably used these timelines to rob the story of suspense.

    weird, but then I'm still surprised that the no arm Peyton Manning was able to win another superbowl, I think Flacco is better than Manning with no arms, but I can easily be wrong about that. Elway should quit while he's still ahead.
