Yeah, the show is really subversive. Its political point of view is somewhere to the left of Edward Snowden and Karl Marx. But that was a smart choice, it seems to me. It explains the crazy things...

I agree that the biggest mistake made by the writers of action thrillers is to lard them with a bunch of soap opera fluff. Unfortunately, it seems to happen more often than not.

Yeah, several of the girls could really sing. I hope that nobody thinks I am sexist when I refer to these women as "girls." It's just that most of them are younger than my youngest daughter. :)

I recognize that Birdman is a very smart film but had no idea it would anger anybody who didn't get it. What's to get upset about? Hell, it's only a movie, albeit a wonderful one.
