Cyprian700, what's your favourite How I Met Your Mother character? I like Marshall.

Hollywood is utterly depraved and diabolical.  "They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one."

I hate and despise Hollywood, as all discerning Christians should, and I have no favorite shows or characters.  Every Hollywood production is laced with evil. Bar none.

You may be shocked to hear this, but having grown up in Queens, I know for a fact there were gay people and Jewish people in Manhattan before someone made a show about it.

Try San Francisco in the 1950's. 
Didn't care then and wish I was forced not to try and care now as well.

Isn't this particular quote referring to you and me as well?


Is there any secular movie or series you're into?

In the good ol' days of Rome (around empire height) actors were despised and near the bottom of the social rung, as they were considered unmanly with their career designated to be unworthy.
You Roman? or just like the Tradition?

Watching all the wonderful coverage of Muhammad Ali. Sometimes the media actually does good work. From ESPN to CNN to FOX News, everyone is doing Ali justice and offering worthwhile and honest insights on the life and legacy of The Greatest. I keep breaking down in tears. Along with Dr. MLK, Ali has been my hero from the earliest days of childhood.

National news got over Prince quickly.  I wonder who's next.

A friend got me into Person of Interest through talking over the finale. There goes summer break.

I'm watching Yu-Gi-Oh, it was a real mania as I was a little kid. Most nostalgic thing I've done.

I just got into Person of Interest (via Netflix) as well; watched the season 1 finale last night. Lots of wooden acting from the lead, crazy plots, silly characterizations, and dumb premises, but that's the price of admission. And dammit if, by the end of the season, they didn't have me really caring about that whole pre-show drama/relationship Reese had with that woman, along with the pre-show life of Finch as well.

I guess it's just you and me.  I was flipping channels and saw a cow getting bisected.  That was enough to get me hooked.  :)

I saw a person get bisected in a sci-fi-horror-movie once. It was a crappy movie to the 11th degree, but that single scene/special effect of the person getting split almost made it worth watching.  :police:

EDIT--to add, I guess getting cut in half isn't completely unique, but this was very clean and quick, it was some tentacle or lashing out or whatever, and at first the person didn't even know they were cut in half, and then... slowly... they realized... oh crap... and then plop, they fell apart.

I was recently surfing youtube and stumbled upon a vid of this scene. Not as cool as I remember. These things are almost never as cool as I remember.  :police:

As a follow-up, the whole "charismatic [jerk]hole" thing they do with John Reese is seriously starting to rub me raw as a pancake. At least when writers were doing that sort of thing with Gregory House it was a central part of his character. Reese just treats people like crap and glibly/sarcastically dismisses them while they put their careers, lives, and the lives of others on the line.


EDIT--to remove minor spoilers
