Re: The Watcher (Netflix) S: Naomi Watts, Cannavale, C: Ryan Murphy - premieres 10/13/22

Difference is, many events in The Watcher actually happened. The Amityville Horror was a straight-up hoax (https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/the-amityville-horror/).

Re: The White Lotus (HBO) -- S: Britton, Daddario, Zahn -- Limited series created by Mike White -- 7/11/2

Cristobal Tapia De Veer is a genius... and that's not a word I just throw around. His score for Utopia was absolutely amazing, incorporating nature sounds that have been slowed down or sped up to...

Re: Devil in the White City from EP Scorsese/DiCaprio - Hulu

Seems like they started development on this a couple years after the actual World's Fair it's based on ended!

Re: The complaining about Amazon thread

My wife and I bought a patio table and chairs from Walmart. It was originally something like $375 for the table and four chair set, but when we bought it (mid August) they were clearing out the...

Yep... is it weird that Cristobal Tapia De Veer is the main reason I tuned in to this show?

He also did the BBC's Humans a couple years back. The guy's good!

Re: Fleabag (Amazon) -- created by and starring Phoebe Waller-Bridge

Not this show. She wrote, produced and ran the first season of Killing Eve, which I could easily see being near the Bond universe.

And, as far as Killing Eve goes, Waller-Bridge leaving is the...

Re: WGN America is gone and now rebranded as NewsNation

WTBS died in 2007. For 30+ years before that, WTBS (the UHF station in Atlanta) and TBS (the cable network) aired almost identical programming. But FCC rules required WTBS (as a broadcast station) to...

Re: Debris (NBC) -- S: Jonathan Tucker -- Sci-Fi drama from the Producer of Fringe -- Premieres 3/1/21

Not only that, but to me network shows all look, sound and feel the same, too. It's like the same 1,000 people work in network TV as cameramen, set designers, costumers, sound designers and writers,...

Re: Utopia (Amazon) - S: John Cusack, Rainn Wilson, Sasha Lane, EP: Gillian Flynn

I watched about half of episode 1 and just can't... I try not to be one of those "but the original is so much better" people, but... in this case, the original was so much better. The aspect ratio....

Re: Challenger : The Final Flight (Netflix 4-Part Docu-Series) - 9/16/20

I thought it was pretty well done, but honestly I didn't learn much from it I didn't already know. 60 Minutes did an extended episode about the Challenger disaster back in the day, and it actually...

Re: The Psychedelic Furs - "Made of Rain"

Yeah, I've tried to listen to this album 3-4 times, and it's just not clicking for me. It is a sonic disaster: Richard Butler's vocals are as good as ever, but all the instruments are the exact same...

Re: Anyone remember Eddy Grant and "Electric Avenue?"

It was better than Loverboy's "Queen of the Broken Hearts", which MTV played every 16 minutes the summer of 1983.

Re: Away (Netflix) -- S: Hillary Swank, Josh Charles - From EP Jason Katims, Matt Reeves & Ed Zwick - 9/4

Not bad, but it really strikes me as a Clint Eastwood-directed film, just cut into ten 50-ish minute pieces.For-sure more soapy than sci-fi\thriller.

Re: What happened to the Dixie Chicks?

No. The first Confederate flag (which doesn't contain the infamous battle flag) was the Stars and Bars (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flags_of_the_Confederate_States_of_America#First_flag). The...

Re: What channel that drifted from its original mission disappointed you the most?

Uhhhhh.. Turner bought MGM's library on March 25, 1986. AMC's 2002 format change had nothing to do with it.

Re: What the hell happened to The Travel Channel?

For the record, one thing I like about YouTube is that you can get specific-as-hell information about places you're going or want to go. Going to New York City? There are a million videos about that....

Re: Hightown (Starz) -- S: Monica Raymund, James Badge Dale -- From EP Jerry Bruckheimer -- Premieres 5/1

Meh. I know Cape Cod isn't Montauk, but the setting reminds me of The Affair. And the mostly unlikeable cast does, too. And not in a good way.

I mean, I don't know what I was expecting with a name...

Re: Is John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ the worst song of all time?

As a hardcore "Imagine" hater, it's two things:

1) The saccharine, yet dopey lyrics aren't a "moving poem", or an "examination of my role in the Universe"... "Imagine" is a shitty Hallmark card....

Re: Which "A" List movie stars are you surprised did a mini-series or something on the tv medium?

This was a bigger deal in the 70s and 80s.

The Thornbirds? Richard Chamberlain... on TV?

The Winds of War? Robert Mitchum... on TV?

That was a big deal.
