  1. What an emotional roller coaster this has been. I am thrilled beyond belief another network decided to grab it while it's hot (title of their sex tape). Thank you so much NBC!!!
  2. I was thinking the same thing! If they can give New Girl an 8-episode sendoff, then why not B99? This is one of the few shows that actually has me in stitches damn near every single time. I'm keeping faith B99 will be picked up by a streaming service. The writing is fantastic, as well as the ensemble. Capt. Holt Soundboard: Screw. FOX.
  3. S05.E20: Show Me Going

    "Oh hey Raymond, I can't wait for you and Kevin to come over and meet the baby. We're still on for Thursday, right?" "Screw. That." "I'm sorry, I thought you wanted to meet baby Carol? Her surgery was such a success." "Screw. That. Screw. That. Get. Some. Good. Bye." I definitely need a Capt. Holt soundboard, LOL!
  4. S03.E18: Local Vendors Day

    I can relate. One time my supervisor asked the employees to purchase a Christmas present for the CEO. Even though she didn't say anything outright, it was implied that you absolutely must or be excluded from the party that was being held for the company. I decided not to since I was only working part-time (15 hrs/week) and being paid minimum wage. Of course, everybody received an invitation while I did not. Other than that, it was parents trying to pressure colleagues into buying whatever their children were selling to help raise funds for school. I didn't mind that one so much since it was usually a cheap candy bar and the like. It rings very true to real life.
  5. S05.E17: Colors

    I always LOL seeing modern-day vehicles in a period that's supposed to be 1980-something. It was so blatantly obvious when the "Frentas" were power walking up the street in their neighborhood. I'm guessing actual people reside there. I've never seen the movie Colors (1988) so I can't really comment on it. Loved learning more about the real JTP. JTP!
  6. Just read about his passing. So sad. I'll always remember the episode (The Life You Save) in which his character has a near-death experience. Very fine performance. R.I.P. David Ogden Stiers.
  7. Suits in the Media

    ‘Suits’ Renewed For Season 8 Without Patrick J. Adams & Meghan Markle, Ups Dulé Hill & Gets 7B Premiere Date By USA
  8. This seemed like a good idea on paper, but after viewing this episode, I would have given the spinoff series a hard pass. I couldn't care less for Octavia Spencer as the narrator. Gigi (Summer Parker) was annoying. Coach Mellor is good as a supporting character only. Having him and Mr. Glasscott as the leads didn't turn out to be that great. Though, I did laugh at Johnny Atkins (RUSH guy) becoming a Radiohead fan in the 1990s.
  9. S05.E10: We Didn't Start The Fire

    I still don't know all of the lyrics to We Didn't Start the Fire (1989), even to this day. Same with Don McLean's American Pie (1971). Yeah, I could Google them, but I'd much rather hum the tune while listening. Great episode. Anything involving Pops is gold.
  10. Aaannnddd Gina is back. I feel like someone ripped my heart out of my chest and stomped on it a few dozen times when she answered the door. Maybe in a future episode she'll get hit by a train. One can hope.
  11. Nothing much to discuss other than The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was more of a '90s thing. I know Will Smith was a rapper prior to acting in the 1980s, but it seems as though the writers have been treading into the next decade, especially with the Girl Talk episode. This overbearing mom stuff with Beverly is getting a tad bit redundant. When they decided to have Erica go to college, it's like nobody knew what to do with her character. This seems to be a problem among other shows that tend to do the same. I was a little disappointed that there was no Pops in this episode. He's usually the one that has me rolling on the ground with laughter.

    Capt. Holt: "I only have one dream a year. Always on tax day. In it, I must file an extension. So, yes, it is best not to have dreams." Great episode! Loved it all the way through. Definitely made up for last week.
  13. Suits in the Media

    I believe that had a lot to do with the outrage from the loyal fan base. ABC knew the ratings would take a nosedive, so they decided to cut their losses and ax the show. Besides, I think the production budget for each episode was costly. I'm sure that also played a part in its demise. The last (eighth) season of Castle was a disaster anyhow. I had no clue Patrick J. Adams was leaving. USA should end Suits while they're still (somewhat) ahead, and give the Jessica spinoff a chance. I don't think I could tolerate more Donna if they decide to continue the series.
  14. I think Hayley Orrantia is cute, but the Erica character can be a wee bit annoying at times. Yes, we get it, she can sing. Don't need to shove it down our throats every season, especially twice in the same episode. I noticed Barry mentioned drinking Erica's Five Alive. It must have been a regional drink because I never recalled seeing it on store shelves. Ah, Burger Time! I remember that game. I think the whole purpose was to get the meats and buns down to the bottom of the screen. You would throw salt and pepper at the condiments in order to stun them. Gotta love those outdoor driving scenes. You can clearly see modern-day vehicles parked out on the street, LOL!
  15. If anybody here watches The Angry Video Game Nerd web series, James Rolfe made several references to Atari's E.T. game and even produced a movie revolving around it in 2014. I wonder if the writers are fans of his YouTube show. I was more of an Intellivision gamer pre-NES. I used to love playing Space Invaders. I do remember that ridiculous controller with the numeric keypad and buttons on the side/bottom. Of course, Intellivision was one of the consoles that suffered from the video game crash of 1983. Thank goodness Nintendo came along when it did. Wow, 33% interest on a credit card! My parents put a mortgage on a house around the early '80s that had interest rates through the roof. I remember them saying something about having to refinance several times over the years just to lower it. I suppose establishing any type of loan was costly back then. Yikes!
