Re: In Search of a Flat Earth | A video about conspiracy theorists

I use to listen to the Art Bell show back in the 1990s, largely to get a laugh out of the X-Files-esque stuff they were talking about as if it was for real.

Re: Popular Movies You Just Donít Get

When I was really young, I didn't get Strangelove when I first saw it.

Dr. Strangelove was much more humorous/insightful after I read more about Edward Teller.

Re: The One and Only TV FAQ Thread Plus Renewal and Cancellation News

Does Netflix syndication deals still even matter anymore for recent rookie or sophomore shows?

ie. Are the studios now using such rookie/sophomore shows as fodder for their own streaming services ?

Re: The One and Only TV FAQ Thread Plus Renewal and Cancellation News

If their cash cow is now streaming on their own flat-rate vod services, then nielsen ratings are completely irrelevant.

Show cancellations decisions are entirely opaque to non-insiders.

This has been happening for a long time, whenever I only ordered one or two (or three) cd/dvd/bluray titles.
