I will make one prediction: There will be two shootings that bookend this series. The first was in S1E1, scene 1 where Raylan first told that crook that he would either leave town in 24 hours, or...

I'd give it 4.5 stars. As an example, the two series I like better are House of Cards and Breaking Bad.

Really. Downtown Chicago is a nightmare of one way streets. One blockage can halt traffic over several square blocks.

Bloodline - a NetFlix original series

Bloodline is a NetFlix original series that went online on March 20. It is good enough that I saw all 13 episodes over a 3 day stretch.

OK, you have a point. But I do like large butts. When Salma strutted out dressed in snake and not much else, she simply rendered the current crop of skinny-butted starlets obsolete.

I also think the movie was close to the reality of War and to the toll it takes on Americans. That is why virtually no one in the MPAA voted for this movie - those are experiences outside of their...
