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?

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.

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

I'm a big fan of Invader Zim. I enjoyed Samurai Jack but I thought it was mostly style over substance. Great visuals, none of the wit or great writing that Zim had.

Just got around to watching Rosewood. Lighthearted fluff very much in the vein of my beloved Castle. Marvellous and untaxing.

Ugh, I really really wanted to like it. Alas, I couldn't even finish the series. I don't think I'm one of those overly persnickety victim-complex people who sees anti-Xtian conspiracies in everything, but I found it to be more of Bernard Cornwell's pagan leg-humping stuff. And people who have a go at Alfred the Great, particularly based on their sad, baseless speculations, deserve some harsh comeuppance.

But aside from that, I thought it was entertaining and can see why people enjoyed it.

House of Cards

Consider this spoilery

Didn't mind the slow pacing early on, nor the dumb ways people acted sometimes (plot needs to move along, guess this character has to become an idiot for an episode or two...)  Now a little over halfway through the 4th season and the grind of it all, along with (imo) less interesting stories, is starting to get to me. But in general I'm still hooked. Also, for the 2nd time in a couple years I had a 'mouth wide open' surprised moment, with what happened to Zoe. Oh, and I wanted to reach through the TV screen and kill Doug for what happened to Rachel; honestly, I just want to kill him dead even now.

I watched the whole thing and I don't know why. It wasn't what I was hoping.
