  1. TV and movie mafia taking a hit this week. RIP Paulie Wallnuts
  2. All Stars finished last night, strong season, much much better than S1 where 75% of the cast were people who sucked before and were way out of shape. This season was more the the senior PGA? Still very capable but not in their prime if that makes sense? The Challenge USA also started this week and was pretty good. Will hold my judgement until I see it live up to the reg shows standards. I did see a clip that had hall brawl so that has my hopes up.
  3. Since they are doing a BB marathon leading up to the premiere of BCS I figure I'll bump this thread. Caught a little of one ep today to wet my whistle.
  4. Count me as one not glad she survived, I mean yeah she deserves to be alive and happy but it takes away from what she did a little bit. I mean if she lost her powers half way down the fall then how the hell did survive falling another 30-40 stories? It was great to see her more than holding her own against him in that fight. Black Noir = Boba Fett in original SW series? Just kind of there to look badass behind a mask then dies with a whimper? I loved the season overall but the way it ended feels like it was a let down. Main people are still around, no star died, Homelander still in charge. IDK the characters stories all moved really well and got better developed but it just feels off? I'm assuming next season is the big season, a Supe as VP who can play pop goes the President and just like that she is the President. Homelander and his son (who in an alternate universe was named Brightburn) playing daddy and his little demon brat. Next season will likely lead up to whether the kid goes evil or not in the finale? Assuming maybe 2 more seasons to come? Oh one more thing, as I was watching at the end of the fight I thought for a fleeting moment that Homelander was going to look at them and say that they were the team he deserved to have. But no, of course not because that would signal the end to the series.
  5. Finished the season of The Boys and it was an excellent trip, the finale was a little let down IMO but a strong entertaining season. Caught the first premiere of The Challenge USA. spin off of The Challenge on MTV. It lives up to the originals standards and so far isn't watered down. Also watched the finale for The Challenge All Stars and have to say it finished great.
  6. For my household it's two extemes of Caan. Sonny and Buddy the Elf's dad. For my wife he will always be Sonny, and for my daughter he is Buddy's dad. Although both characters were ruthless business men
  7. Really? Would you be ok with people stealing GRRM's books and publishing them with out him getting paid? That's similar to what those initial sharing sites were doing. Getting the site $$ and the artists nothing. I don't wanna rehash that whole debate but considering we are on a site devoted to someone who could be pirated it seems an odd comment to make. I have no issue with the artists getting more money for their work, good for them.
  8. To the bolded part, because it's meant to be tongue in cheek and didn't want anyone to get offended. Underlined part, would've loved to see that. I've seen them three times so far and the last one was by far the best, Comerica Park in Detroit with Avenge Sevenfold and Volbeat(who kill it live btw). Metallica sounded amazing, probably some back tracking or whatever but the show was amazing, probably helps that my daughter saw it with me. I wore out 2 Justice tapes and a CD.
  9. Oh, one last thing on the most metal scene ever... The actor actually learned the song on the guitar and was really playing along in that scene, shocked the director as no one knew he could do it.
  10. Probably a typo but didn't OBJ force his way out, not the other way around? I thought he had his dad make some comments that he knew could only end one way. I don't disagree on Mayfields' talent, I think he has been top 15-20 at his best, a middling QB. But he was the best they have had, won their first playoff game in a couple decades and I just think he got a raw deal from a team that has a history of screwing things up. I was actually rooting for them 2 years ago maybe that's why this burns me up, actually rooted for them.
  11. Can't blame him for Kitchens ineptitude and last year Mayfield was playing hurt. So other than those two seasons you say he was a top 10 QB, who was on your roster already and probably could've signed relatively cheap for a QB after proving it this season. Instead they traded away 3 num 1 picks and 230mill fully guaranteed to acquire his replacement, who likely won't play at all this season, his second consecutive season of not playing, Who knows when he will play again, and you had to pay Mayfield to leave. Who would I rather have, Watson of course, but not at that cost, and not with what he has done. Now if Mayfield lost the locker room then yeah you have to dump him regardless.
  12. I loved the song choice and fuck Iron Maiden while we are at it (jk, sort of)! The Iron Maiden fanboy in you is getting in the way of a great scene. I was listening to Metallica at that time, 13 yrs old i think, thanks to older brothers who had a tape, and they went to the Monsters of Rock tour in Detroit. They said Metallica sucked live then btw, too fast, and they didn't know their songs very well. I listened to their tape way more than they did. The song was perfect for the character and scene. Vecna was literally puppeteering his victims when he killed them, they were in the air and he was the Master of Puppets pulling their strings how much more on point could a song be! He isn't the devil and the mark of the beast refers to the devil. Now, about the actual season, loved it, felt like S1 again. Only real gripe is
  13. I'd say Mayfield was 3rd on that list. He was a fine starting QB before getting injured last season and playing hurt. Him playing hurt probably drastically altered things for the Browns. If he had surgery and missed the rest of the season he goes out on a relatively high note(?)(think he was playing ok before the injury) Do the Browns still target Watson as highly and do the Browns get more in return since Mayfield wouldn't have looked as bad as he did the rest of the season? I couldn't care less about the Browns than I do now. I hope Mayfield gets to play against them and has the best game of his career and plants a flag at midfield. After that he can fade away.
  14. Had 5 days off in a row so I caught up on some stuff. The Boys, still loving this batshit crazy show Watched the last two episodes of Stranger Things Overall one of my favorite seasons and loved Metallica! Watched a show on Prime, The Terminal List. Still have mixed thoughts about it. I think I really liked it, but it missed a few beats. Definitely worth a watch. They keep you guessing a little in the first couple episodes about what reality is but then it straightens out a bit.
  15. There is some valid point to the weather issue. Get those track burners outside when it's a snowy field and it reduces them to average at best because they can't sprint and make the same precise cuts that they have spent their whole lives doing. Now, their lines would still be as dominant, no doubt. Saban would just run it down the opponents throats and use those receivers near the goal line.
  16. B1G school get around 31 mill annually, under the current deal, it's going to jump since they just added the LA market and CBS will join in the bidding after losing the SEC. Only the new SEC deal is better. They can compete with $$ with anyone, unfortunately we cannot compete on the football field consistently!
  17. Why? It's still B1G vs Pac. Takes what little luster there was left off of it but it can still be the Rose bowl.
  18. https://sports.usatoday.com/ncaa/finances 3 of the top 4 from 2021 were Oregon, ohio state, Texas, Michigan..... and thats without the new tv deal that is coming for the B1G soon. Talent, yeah it's behind but revenue, no.
  19. Agree. This show without Homelander might not work, at least for me.
  20. I just wish they had the balls to break away from the NCAA and form their own league. B1G Ten will now have 2 east coast teams, 12 mid west and 2 west coast teams. I get the draw from recruiting and financial terms, that new tv deal will be ridiculous.
  21. Started Bosch Legacy today, accessing it through Amazon Prime, freevee? It feels a little different but still the same as Bosch when Amazon made it. Two things I noticed, they seem obsessed with F bombs, drop em like crazy. And the opening, who knew you could miss the opening to a show? The old series had a familiar song that I liked.
  22. It has been pretty entertaining so far, beaver being the new thing to hunt. Bear seems to always be the talk of the contestants because it's the one thing that can eat them and that they could survive on for a long time due to the high fat content. Green hair was smart. The fishing dock was done before and the guy even put a gill net out off the end of it. What kills me is the people who build log cabins that would last a lifetime and burn all their energy doing it and tap out after it's built! That said, my fat ass would tap out before the boat was even out of sight!
  23. I'd be happy with never seeing Obi-Wan again, he did his thing and we saw a little bridge between the movies. I've never watched any of the animated shows nor read any of the books so I'm looking forward to Ashoka because I know nothing about her and have no expectations other than what I've seen in these tv shows.
  24. Actually you may be right, but don't disrespect Ali from The Karate Kid like that!
  25. Yeah but she doesn't need to pop his head fully, just brain dead would work. She could do it from another room, no evidence yet that he can see through walls is there? Have her do that the next time Butcher and co. attack him. Then have her immediately pop Soldier Boy right after. OF course the show wouldn't be as good without Homelander so this isn't what I want.
