Re: Elementary (CBS) -- Season 7 -- The Final Season Thead -- premieres 5/23/19

Odin Reichenbach? He's no Moriarty. It seems like they are sleepwalking through this last season. I barely follow the plot most weeks. I watch to see Sherlock be quirky and Joan wear great clothes....

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

Re: Good old fast Firefox is back

I think I had to give too many permissions in NoScript to get Gmail to work with Firefox. Plus I just like keeping it separate from my general browsing.

Re: Good old fast Firefox is back

I use Firefox 67.0.4 with Adblock Plus, Ghostery, and NoScript for my browsing. It seems to block stuff well. Chrome for my Gmail account. Opera for porn.

Re: New! Improved! The 2020 Presidential Election Thread: It's Never Over! Edition

Re: Good Omens (Amazon) -- C: Neil Gaiman, S: David Tennant, Michael Sheen -- premieres 5/31/19

I loved the books but didn't like any of the other adaptations. Maybe it's sour grapes from never getting through one of the puzzles in the Infocom game.

Re: Do you watch full length TV shows and movies on your phone?

I once considered it when flying on a cheap airline (United) who didn't have seat-back entertainment. But their app didn't work with Android so I listened to music instead.

Re: Do you have time to re-watch old movies from your collections? (physical and digital)

I have 491 (yes I'm that kind of person) DVD's sitting in boxes. I live in Podunk and have Amazon Prime so I don't have to drive to Walmart. I haven't watched a DVD in ages.

It's hilarious that 20,00 Christians are petitioning Netfix to stop showing Good Omens.

Re: Too Old To Die Young (Amazon) from Nicolas Winding Refn -- S: Miles Teller -- 6/14/19

There is building atmosphere and there is a glacial pace. I found this the latter.

Re: The Fast Food Junkie Thread

This was the first thing I though of when I heard about the Whataburger buy out. I never ate Kashi cereal but a buyout is never a good thing.

Re: The Fast Food Junkie Thread

I wasn't so much annoyed as amused by being ignored at the Tommy's in Tujunga. It's one of my favorites. I like the old locations with just a window and picnic tables. Like the In-N-Out in La...

Re: Who Pays for a Teenager's First Car?

I bought my first car with my money in the late 60s. $50 for a 1954 Chevy from a friend of my Dads.

Re: The Big Bang Theory (CBS) -- Season 12 -- The Final Season -- premieres 9/24/18

I was a big fan of the early seasons and lost interest over time. I didn't buy Sheldon's conversion but I still very much enjoyed the last episode.
