Why don't you get a handful of people in your local thread to send emails every time they mess it up. Enough emails and phone calls will get someone to start paying attention.

I wouldn't weep for HBO; their "picture" is plenty pretty. They just sold syndication rights to The Sopranos to A&E for a cool $2.5 million per episode and, because they own it, they get all that cash. Can't imagine who'd want to watch the emasculated version those episodes will be, but no matter. HBO is immensely profitable; last year their gross profit exceeded one billion dollars - a first for any network.

And still they refuse to give us OAR on theatrical HD movies. Shameful.

I heard A&E was going to show Sopranos un-edited in a late night time slot (in addition to an edited daytime or prime-time slot). Not sure if that's true or not. But they aren't subject to the same Federal Decency laws that non-cable networks are. Also HBO doesn't get all of the money for the syndication. It will be split between HBO Original Programming, Brad Grey Television and Chase Film.

BTW did you ever think that maybe their profit exceeded one billion dollars because they don't show all of their theatrical HD movies in OAR??? (Flame retardant suit on...)

Anyone catch the "creative" audio dubbing during the funeral procession? I swear, Bree said "Gotta hand it to those CATHLOICS. They sure know how to morn."

Not exactly appropritate for last night, huh?

Not really, but they had no way to know.

Was that what she originally said, or what was dubbed? If the latter, any lip-readers want to take a stab at what she orginally said?

I didn't remember Bree saying that, but then again wasn't paying a lot of attention to what she said, except when she yelled to keep the procession moving.

That's what it looked liked. It was definitely a bad dub, but with the passing of the Pope, it definitely would not have been appropriate to leave it the way it originally was.

OK, did I miss something? Why the settlement in the death of Carlos' mother? Did the hospital really screw up? Or something else?
post #340 of 740
No supervision and a slippery floor led to her death.
post #341 of 740
Yes, although in typical DH fashion, the hospital administrator thought Gabrielle questions about what happened when Mom died were related to a possible negligence by the hospital, when in fact all she wanted to know was if Mom spilled the beans on her...
post #342 of 740
I wonder if someone can refresh my memory...my recall is a little hazy on the events immediately following the accident. Did Gabrielle previously retrieve the camera that her mother-in-law used to take the pics of her with her toy boy?

Or was the camera part of old gal's personal effects that she casually suggested the hospital just toss out?

Just wondering if those incriminating photos are likely to surface down the road...
post #343 of 740
She got the camera right after the accident.

...which Mom did with her last words. You just know that won't be the last we hear from this particular nurse (nurse's aide?). more blackmail for poor Gabrielle.

Nurse in question had earphones on so it's unlikely she heard any of Mama's last words ...

Exactly, Mama's last words are forever buried...

I was going to say something about that...was there a camera in that stairwell?

Not with audio, probably.

But CSI:Wysteria Lane could probably figure out what she is saying.

Yup, in fact Marlee Matlin's character would do the lip-reading..

Trouble on Wysteria Lane?

After reading the article, click on the photo, notice how they billed Marcia Cross...

Incredible...maybe we could them all in a PPV mud wrestling match...
post #356 of 740
The cover of that mag sure looks nice, but you could see trouble from the success of this show coming from a mile a way. But those women sure look hot on the cover.
post #357 of 740
"although Cross and Huffman can't been seen when the cover is folded."

LOL

Teri ended up front & Center on the cover anyway.

Teri and Eva are in a class by themselves - the others should just accept it and move on.

Teri was on the left-side of the cover and Maria and Nicollete were dead center. I'll take Teri's and Maria's body over Eva's any day. Plus they aren't too shabby in the looks department either.

Nicolette was only dead center with the cover opened up - as it sits on news stands - Teri is right in the middle (head under the "TY" in Vanity Fair), Nicolette is on the right and Eva is down low. The other two don't even show up.

No surprise, but ABC today announced it had picked up Desperate Housewives (and Lost, Boston Legal and Alias) for the 2005-2006 season.
