I wouldn't say the teens are getting joy out of life. They're just leading lives of noisy desperation.

I'll say this much for Lost: the first season was really exciting and intriguing and there...

In earlier ep, there was a tv commercial from a company that makes life size dolls of disappeared loved ones so people can bury them (or prop them up on chairs in the attic?)

Well, I finished finally.

Checked it out because I have a thing for Judy Greer but she's barely in it and plays a shrew. The supporting cast is I think too good for this show.

I thought it was going to be an adaptation of Shirley Jackson's famous short story.

Lifetime. Who knows, it could be good.

It's not a problem if you have God picking bets for you.

Btw, would a casino really give you $160k in an envelope. Would they even take $20k in cash.

Well we know the "departure" will not be explained. They've said as much in interviews.

They could make it dirt cheap and we still won't see it in TVs. Poor color reproduction and abysmal off axis viewing. It's only good for mobile devices due to low power consumption.

I use subtitle even for English shows. My hearing is fine. I just find a lot of dialogue in contemporary tv and movies muffled and overwhelmed by soundtrack and background noise.

Do the teams have to declare the shooting lineup at the start or can the coach pick who's next depending on the score?

I like the True Detectives opening title, but mostly it's the music.

Of course the greatest TV title sequence ever is The Brady Bunch's. Memorable, iconic, endlessly parodied and remixed.

Why didn't Ned coach put in Tim Krul for the shootout? He did pretty well last time. Why not go with what works?

Does Brasil have some kind of emergency response plan for a massive World Cup loss? This is too sad to watch.
