I'm hoping for a self-contained story that will tie back into and inform AoS and Avengers 2. If it's good enough, it can go on to tell more stories in later seasons. There has to be a reason they had...

The flashbacks were Sorkin's way of showing us (rather than just telling us, as eulogies would have) how pivotal Charlie was to everything that happened in the series. And that Mackenzie was his...

The fundamental problem with this new generation of NBC live productions is simply that they're essentially like the opening night of the first preview of a new Broadway show -- and not the TV...

I think they did that simply so that he couldn't run very fast when chased by walkers in the next episode. As soon as he started limping, didn't we all say "he's zombie bait?"

To me, it really depends on how the music was performed, and on the purpose of the recording.

IMO a multichannel recording of a live performance should normally use multichannel to re-create the...

Don't confuse "comedy" with "TV comedy." Did you ever see Carson's Vegas act?

The change is simply that audiences are more sophisticated now and know how people -- and particularly professional...

That's why I describe it as a fable, not as science fiction. Tortoises and hares don't actually race each other. But it makes a good story and gets its message across. There is a great deal of...

If you quote me out of context in order to make a point that's contrary to what I said in the body of the post, you're going to get pushback. Deal with it, or don't.

Sorry, Ralph. I'm done.

Like so many of these "dystopian" movies, it's not science fiction; it's a fable. There is virtually no element of it that holds up under rational scrutiny.

But as a fable, it is richly told and...

Stranded copper wire, with the jacket marked for polarity, yes. 14ga is more than adequate for any runs up to 50 feet. Even 16ga lamp cord will do the job with short runs.

I think that system will be fine in that size room if it isn't too acoustically dead, with an appropriate AVR. As always, though, the room is the single most important room in a system -- a bad room...
