I agree with Bill that John Ford's Wagon Master is an underappreciated gem. It starred the young Ben Johnson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Johnson_(actor)) long before we learned what a great...

Despite my fears that the NATHAN JAMES may be relegated to the background, I agree that the season finale was pretty engaging. I particularly enjoyed Alfre Woodard as the creepy survivor of the now...

Although I think that Mark Weber is a good guy, particularly by F1 standards, I agree that Ricciardo has been a significant upgrade for Red Bull. Weber was a decent driver but was never a threat to...

I watched the season finale of The Last Ship in nearly real time this evening. With the Nathan James being stuck at anchor in Baltimore harbor and the crew having been removed I am ready to dump the...

Didn't Vermeer play wide receiver for the Jets? Just kidding, although I don't know 'nothin' 'bout no stinkin' Dutch masters. :) More seriously, that scene was indeed beautifully done.

Couldn't agree more, both that it was a terrific race and that Eddie Jordan was absolutely right to chastise the overwrought Hamilton fans who were booing Rosberg. Just when I thought that no fans...

I have no idea what Usenet is like these days. Every time I have checked it out in recent years, it has felt like a foreign country. How soon we forget. :)

With all due respect I fundamentally disagree with your assessment. More than 52,000 IMDb voters (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0038355/combined) have thought so highly of The Big Sleep it is on the...

I spent the national debt on Compu$erve back in the day but after an arrogant sysop (an oxymoron I know but there it is) made me mad I quit. After that I got onto Usenet, which gave new meaning to...

I thought the first Amazing Spider-Man was little more than a tedious, almost frame by frame, retelling of the original Toby Maguire version. Amazing Spider-Man 2 seemed a lot fresher to me so,...

I rented the BD from Redbox yesterday and watched it last night. At first, I was turned off by all the preposterousness but finally realized that this is a comic book film. After I did that and...

I thought this week's episode was the best of the season so far. The depiction of Frank and Paul's walk back to HQ with the young soldier who Frank had disarmed was extremely well done. I also...

I agree that the writers could send the show in an ever more preposterous direction if they aren't careful. I just hope they remember that what gives the show its magic is that Arleigh Burke...

I hope you're right, God knows! A second GP on US soil would be a wonderful thing. Who Knows? Maybe it will really happen.

Seems like the show has already been renewed for a second season. I think I'm glad but that will depend upon whether the writers can find a way to keep us aboard the NATHAN HALE.

I worry about that too. When the gang comes back home, they will of course leave the NATHAN JAMES and whenever there is no NATHAN JAMES, The Last Ship loses its magic, it seems to me.

In any event we agree that Shaded Dogfood probably had to be remembering either Fat Man and Little Boy or Oppenheimer. Maybe with our reminders he can tell us which it is.

I too enjoyed this week's episode. In fact The Knick is on the way to becoming my favorite program of the summer. Clive Owen has been wonderful as the deliciously ambiguous, Dr. Thackery, a guy who...
