Re: Penny Dreadful: City of Angels - 1930s followup series - premieres 4/26/20

I thought it was pretty darn good. Terrific sets, locations and story. Acting was generally good. Adriana Barraza was particularly terrific. Natalie Dormer ... wow, surviving her awful German...

Re: Snowpiercer (TNT) - based on the film - S: Jennifer Connelly, Daveed Diggs - premieres 5/17/20

And I don't understand how you don't understand the difference. Tell me there are aliens and I'm good. Tell me that the alien can fly and I'm good. Tell me that a space ship can fly at the speed...

Re: Jaws -- 45th Anniversary Edition -- 4K UHD/BD -- 6/2/20

This is just a general comment, not meant to be directed toward any one individual. But, I can remember when this forum would discuss everything about a video edition, except the film itself ......

Re: Snowpiercer (TNT) - based on the film - S: Jennifer Connelly, Daveed Diggs - premieres 5/17/20

Agreed. Parables are fine if you're 5 (or rather slow upstairs), but it's hard to invest in the show when it seems so preposterous. In Sci-Fi, if they tell you that the ship can move at light...

Re: Penny Dreadful: City of Angels - 1930s followup series - premieres 4/26/20

So true. For one city, they've created some story arcs that all could be their own comprehensive story ... all of them interesting to me.

So far, so good.

Re: Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian (Disney+) -- docuseries -- premieres 5/4/20

Agreed. The stories of how they got to this point and what they felt about the experience were worth watching. So ... if you're happy seeing directors, it's all good. If you're interested in...

Re: Westworld (S3E08) -- Season Finale -- “Crisis Theory” -- 5/3/20

Agreed.

However, it's arguably worse than that. It's one thing to believe that a bunch of corporate hacks (including Serac) could only hire the Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight. But, that's...

Re: Penny Dreadful: City of Angels - 1930s followup series - premieres 4/26/20

Yes ... because that's what I insist upon in a fantasy show ... historical accuracy. (sarcasm tag).

That said, I did enjoy the homage to Chinatown, most notably the protest at city hall, the...

Re: Ellen DeGenereres considering to end her daytime talk show

Jimmy Fallon is quite approachable. Every July 4th he shows up at the local parade and celebration and is great with those that want a photo or just talk to him or ask for an autograph.

Re: Westworld (S3E07) -- “Passed Pawn” -- 4/26/20

Exactly. We've been through so many shows with setups and brain-f**ks like this that it seems trite. Plus, just how many flashbacks of the Shrink over Caleb do they think we need to get the...

Re: Homeland (Showtime) -- The 8th and Final Season -- Premieres 2/9/20

But ... wasn't she always? After all, when she screwed up in the first season, she offered Saul sex to make it up to him. That's ho-low.

I liked that they tied in the jazz music at the end....

Re: Landlords on my case about my cleanliness!

Yes and no. Hopefully, we can (and do) care about people, even if they put up their own roadblocks.

Maybe I missed it in the sea of posts in this thread, but I've seen a lot about warnings from...

Re: The complaining about Amazon thread

That's not true. The key trouble is that Amazon puts its customers above everyone else. So, it's to the consumer's advantage that Amazon exists. Do others get hurt in the process? Of course.

If...

Re: James Bond Update

It's fine to feel that way, of course, but if bitching about the role is a big thing for you, well Sean Connery - while he was doing the role - bitched a LOT more than Craig has done.

So, without...

Re: Westworld (S3E06) -- “Decoherence” -- 4/19/20

Awesome news that Westworld will have a Season 4!

But, I'm still very disappointed that Angela hasn't been in Season 3 (at least up to this point).

Sure glad to see that the complaining about Amazon thread is alive and well.

Re: Landlord Trying To Rip Me Off?

I agree. The lack of needing a separate account is a plus. And that $7.80 would buy you a wonderful piece of crumb cake at Nancy's Restaurant (before it shut down).

Re: Landlords on my case about my cleanliness!

Aren't we all guilty of that to some extent? After all, inventory is cash in the wrong form.

Re: Landlord Trying To Rip Me Off?

I can only speak with clarity about Connecticut's rule. So, in CT, landlords are required to keep a separate interest-bearing savings account. This is a pooled account for all tenants. In an audit or...

Re: Landlord Trying To Rip Me Off?

Fair enough. There are strange outliers, particularly in liberal states or municipalities where logic be damned. For example, in Boulder, Colorado, the current rate is .39% based on the return of a...
