I thought Sydney's description of the systematic execution of a hospital train full of wounded soldiers was a chilling reminder of just how horrible war can be. There but for the grace of God could...

I agree that Hell on Wheels has returned to the top of its game this season. I lost track of the number of scenes in this week's show that had me gasping, including Sydney's senseless killing of the...

I agree. There is a real possibility that Chandler's wife is only "TV dead," which is to say not dead at all. We never saw her dead body. Further Chandler's father didn't say she was dead. ...

I didn't get onto Doctor Who until the (brief) run of the Ninth Doctor, Christopher Eccleston. Then David Tennant came onboard as the Tenth Doctor and the rest is history. :) I have not felt...

I agree that the way in which the lady was maimed was a tragedy. Still, I can see the black humor in the situation too. A lot of bad stuff went on in those years, including typhoid fever, which was...

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. :)

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...
