I'm sorry, you are right. I apologize.

There is probably no website that cares that every TV network now calls the team the Redskins. So posting there would be a waste of your valuable time.

Predicting the success of draft picks is dangerous.

After watching Watson beat Alabama, I think Texans won this draft.

I recently went through the DLP chip replacement. Also replaced both of the small (noisy) fans. And I also had a problem unhooking power connector mentioned recently. I just took a Dremel and...

I don't think the "people who matter" (unions and studio execs) care what those of us who have no problem with a writers strike think.

Why cancel a show that always leads the Friday ratings? Until the "talent" gets too greedy.

Does Moonves get $gazillions for high viewership (albeit largely old folks), or being with Julie Chen?...

Neat ending!

I initially thought Henry calling the guy with "I can't go to prison" was for assisted suicide.

Guess we'll have to wait a year to find out.

I wasn't aware they changed showrunners. I had just decided the fault with the last episode fell squarely on the showrunner for approving that script. Was the new showrunner in charge when this...

Doesn't make a lot of sense. They do a "gun control" episode, which appeals to those who don't watch this show. But it appeals to the writers and producers.

I'm surprised nobody noted the original question was wrong. An HTPC doesn't need a $100 power supply. A 320W is enough, and very cheap.

I'm confused.

Zeke says he was openly gay for many years. Now that he claims trans (to male?), that means he used to claim to be a lesbian.

Do I have that right, or backwards?

All that...

Yes. All taxes, fees, etc. My net cost for 2 years is $1032. No initial fees either. That only includes two devices, so >2 TVs would be extra.

Maybe in the long term. I have DirecTV satellite for $43/mo (fixed for 2 years). A lot better than YTTV, and cheaper. Except when heavy rain blocks the signal.

Good final episode. I consider TGF just as good as TGW. My only disappointment was Eli Gold didn't show up in the finale. But his daughter is becoming a star, and also Cush Jumbo.

It was "over-the-air addressable advertising" that scares me. But I realize that doesn't apply if I use an antenna. Hopefully.

I agree, but consider who is in charge of the show. Political correctness still rules.
