  1. As long as you don't wind up needing that corporate overlord later down the road! Not wise to burn bridges in an industry where most bridges are connected in some way.
  2. So I watched a few episodes S1 Slow Horses and so far it's been pretty good. It's always a little strange watching a law enforcement type show set in England as an American. I'm so used to everyone having a gun that when the one guy had one and no one else did it feels off. Also, is this set up a real thing in England, a lower level of MI6 for people who washed out? I had to rely on IMDB to tell me why Olivia Cooke looked so familiar, perhaps if she was wearing green I would've recognized her sooner!
  3. The hell you say?!?! I remember laughing at the lines and especially Vince Vaughn.
  4. I never really got into this show. I tried it weekly, then tried binging the last three episodes but never really mattered. I liked a few of the characters, Navarro, the young male cop and his wife but that was about it. One thing I must've missed. I do admit I wasn't wholly focused so maybe I missed how the leap was made in the about spoiler?
  5. Still had 2 more free tickets that expire in February so I went and watched Land of Bad. The title just still irritates me... War movie set in the Philippines, both Russian and Muslim bad guys. It telegraphed itself in the first 15 min, told you basically what the hero was going to go through. It has Liam Hemsworth and Russell Crowe in it for star power. Russell playing a role that he is way way too old for, and they explain it away, he still does a decent job in the role. If you have an expiring free ticket, go see it, if not you aren't missing anything. Also finished True Detective Night Country. IDK it just never grabbed me, there were events that should've but I was just never into it. I should go back and watch S1 since it was the only one of these that I was actually truly into. S2 sucked ass, S3 was ok, S4 meh. Has anyone watched Slow Horses? Spy show set in England. I started watching an episode last night but was just too tired and shut it off. Wondering if it's worth the investment.
  6. I am current on Masters of the Air now. The most recent episode finally had me feeling something, caring a little about the characters.
  7. Caught a clip of Red earlier in day and decided to watch it again. I saw it years ago and didn't care for it too much. This time around I appreciated it a little more. It had a Oceans 11 feel to it that I don't think I caught the first time. Not a bad action flick at all. I'll probably watch part 2 because of this.
  8. No, not so much. I'm current on it and it still doesn't feel like I want to watch it. It's almost like I am watching because BOB was so good and I am just hoping they can capture some of that. The Pacific was way better than this has been so far. The air scenes aren't even very good IMO, because it's just fighters flying past and bullet tracers. I believe they are going to introduce American fighter planes at some point and that will help it out, for me anyway. I need the air to air chasing I guess. There was also some promise
  9. I watched this SB with side eye. Don't like Mahommie getting goat talk after his 1st SB, even though since then he has started earning it. As a Cowboys fan I can't root for SF, ever. I bet on KC and if Kelce catches a TD I win several hundred since I hit the rest of it, KC to win, Kelce and McCaffery tds, Mahommes over 1.5 td, Kelce over 70 yards and KC under 34 points. Damn Kelce. I don't ever bet more than $10 so it's always really just for fun. Earlier in the year I had a 7 legger that missed by a TD also and that was a free $25 bet that would've been $2000+ On to the draft.
  10. Who needs the SB on Sunday, we can just log in here and watch these two titans go at it!
  11. I miss the says when all we knew was that if a receiver had 100 yards for the game he did really good. All of these metrics are a bit ridiculous to me, probably my age showing. I didn't and still don't need catch radius/separation*0.307 = DVR to tell me a receiver was good, my eyes tell me.
  12. RIP Toby Keith. Country music isn't my thing but a lot of his songs stuck with me. If there was a country singer I would see in person it would've been him.
  13. I also watched Mr. and Mrs. Smith recently. I liked the movie more but the series grew on me. I will be waiting for season 2. Watched Dune part 1. I never saw the original so this was all new to me. I guess I liked it, but I don't like it when I know it's just a set up for the next movie.
  14. IMO, it's because he is a pocket QB whose arm talent doesn't stand out. All he does is lead his team to wins, as if that's a bad thing.
  15. Watched Aniara this weekend. It's a Swedish movie I watched with English subtitles, didn't know that before starting it. It's a sci fi movie about people transporting from Earth to Mars. They don't say Earth is dying but do give glimpses of issues and many people have what appear to be scars from fires. It goes awry and shows their version of what would happen on a ship the size of a city that was meant for a few month journey that they are on much longer. What happens to the people, their mental states, water, food etc. Decent enough movie, nothing specifically remarkable except for one scene.
  16. While I'm enjoying the show there are a couple characters / actors who I am not liking, the main two pilots. Just something about their performances that feels fake to me. I have watched all three episodes and so far this trails The Pacific, which IMO was several clicks behind A Band of Brothers. Hopefully I get to know the characters better and the little nuances that currently annoy me go away. I liked how they showed the affect the cold air had on the gunners, a detail that other movies have not shown. Imagine being in that little bubble of plastic thousands of feet in the air and having it get shot out from under you.
  17. I've heard both, the story around here is he came back on his own choice. I think he wants big money to take that leap. wants it to be worth it. Also maybe wants a better situation. He also came back without a big raise so clearly money isn't the only factor.
  18. They didn't get tight at all, they did the opposite. Hell they had one drive where Sewell was basically a TE the whole drive. That's not getting tight, going for it on 4th down multiple times isn't getting tight. The "dumb shit" they did was the same shit they did all season. What happened is that a receiver dropped two very catchable 4th down passes and a ball bounced off a face mask on a 51 yard pass and the receiver made a one in a million catch. I do think they should have kicked a FG on the first drive of the second half though. Something he has to learn to do, take the points sometimes.
  19. 1st bold, well the bar was set pretty low with those two seasons! Underline, I think it's just the amount of sexuality, in just 3 episodes we see her have sex with her boss, she says she is on Tinder, then it's implied that she had sex with the young cop, hence Mrs. Robinson reference. 2nd bold, when I hear that term I reference it to the SE part of the US. Hearing it in Alaska seems odd, unless they are trying to tie those people in with season 1? Unless that's a common term used in Alaska?
  20. Thinking I am gonna skip next weeks and then binge two at a time, maybe it will work better for me. Also I clearly should've rewatched S1 because I missed the tie ins. Only watched S1 once and that was as it aired so none of it is fresh to me.
  21. This doesn't hold water. I liked Gump, still do and I've been given the nickname Liberal Dave.
  22. I also forgot cynicism but luckily for all of us we have you for that!
