  1. Party of One: Unpopular TV Opinions

    JD was easily the most annoying character on Scrubs, which makes me surprised the med schook episodes after he left weren't better. Greg Daniels also co-created Parks and Recreation and you can really see a lot of similarities between Pawnee Indiana and Arlen Texas.
  2. What I find interesting is that the emmy awards have never considered mixing it up to give special awards to popular shows. Look at Mad Men, when it was on and with all the media coverage it was getting it still only had 1 to 2 million viewers. But it was cleaning up at the emmys, yet I don't remember anyone ever suggesting changing the award categories so NCIS could get an award.
  3. S06.E13: Be Free

    I wonder though. I've heard stories of bank robberies where a guard will shoot an accomplice or a bystander and if there is a surviving robber they get charged with murder.
  4. S06.E13: Be Free

    Wouldn't there also be the thing where Tastee committed a felony and that lead to someones death so it is considered murder. I'm no !awyer but is the link between her inciting the riot and Piscatella getting killed enough for her to be guilty of murder?
  5. The Marvel Cinematic Universe: The Avengers, etc.

    Interesting also read today that they are going to be using his script, which makes sense since I doubt they have time for someone to write a whole new one. I also read today that when they fired him he wasn't in breach of contract so Disney has to buy him out of his contract, which will probably mean a 7 to 10 million dollar pay day (not sure if that is on top of what they paid for the script). So considering they are using his script plus paying him up to 10 million maybe at that point it is easier to just let him direct. I would also imagine that the longer this issue drags out for the more Disney management looks like idiots, not just to fans but more importantly to shareholders.
  6. I wonder if it will become like the Animated feature category in that it becomes sort of a consolation prize. It could end up thata great blockbuster comes out and voters don't nominate it for best picture figuring that best popular movie is good enough. I am good with giving other awards during commercial breaks. Giving out awards for short films during the broadcast seems like a waste of time.
  7. Black Panther (2018)

    Speaking of the burning of the herb, it would be hilarious if in the sequel Panther and someone are talking about how it is gone and what they are going to do and Shuri just says something about how she figured out how to clone that plant as a science project when she was 8 years old.
  8. Watched this on netflix and mostly enjoyed it. It seems kind of like they saw the success of The People vs OJ Simpson and decided to make their own famous 90s crime miniseries. The acting was really good by everyone. The only thing that really bugged was how they framed it as one lone wolf agent who plays by his own rules is the only one who can catch the Unabomber. And of course no one recognizes his skills. I am pretty skeptical about criminal profiling to begin with so this series didn't help that, especially when they said they had a huge file full of different profiles. Bettany was good althougn even when he was doing his American accent I still heard Jarvis. The only other real little things that bugged were that when they needed the warrant signed they of course were stuck with the oldest slowest reading judge. That was like something out of The Simpsons. I also thought they could have done a better job explaining how Fitz ended up living in the woods himself. Was it just because some asshole took credit for his work?
  9. The Marvel Cinematic Universe: The Avengers, etc.

    Two of RDJs arrests, if I recall correctly were for driving under the influence and breaking into someone's house (also while high). Now both of those seem like worse things to me then spouting off shit on twitter (especially shit not targeted at anyone), but no way Disney wants that kind of PR mess associated with firing their top actor. Also I see Dave Bautista says he wants out of GOTG3 if Gunn's script isn't used. Pretty brave move since of all the main actors he is probably the one with the most limited career options outside the MCU.
  10. The Marvel Cinematic Universe: The Avengers, etc.

    Well they are under contract, with Disney of course, so I am not too worried about them not showing up. I'm more interested in seeing if they phone it in, not give their best possible performance or don't get into the kind of physical shape they have in the past. That and I wonder how the promo tour for Guardians 3 or even Avengers 4 might go, since you know reporters will ask about the situation. Was also watching the first guardianswith my kids over the weekend and was reminded how great the soundtrack was. My understaning is that those music choices were mostly made by Gunn. Hopefully they can find someone who can not only direct but find good music as well. Since that would really stick out if they didn't.
  11. S06.E10: Chocolate Chip Nookie

    Seeing the trial would be super interesting. I would just like to know if they went on trial together or did one sister flip or try to blame the other.
  12. S06.E07: Changing Winds

    Fig has been holding onto her hatred of Bruce since 1984. At this point it goes beyond that one song, so I can totally see her mentioning it anytime Springsteen comes up.
  13. S06.E13: Be Free

    What I don't get was if Blanca was not legally in the US, why wasn't she deported as soon as she was convicted of her crime? They also could have driven across state lines to kill their sister, that wouod have made it federal kidnapping/murder.
  14. S06.E10: Chocolate Chip Nookie

    She's a Maniac and Flashdance, the movie it was used in, both came out in 1983.
  15. S06.E10: Chocolate Chip Nookie

    One thing I am confused about is that the flashback with the sisters seemas to take place when they are in high school. It also seems to take place in the 1980's. But the math doesn't add up since both women seem way older than 50 or so.
