Scandal

The show just keeps spiraling into new abysses of ridiculousness and I can't look away.

I haven't looked to much into the subject, but it seems to me the superiority of the German tanks came primarily from their way of using them and not so much from the superior quality of the tanks themselves. At the beginning of the war, the French, Poles, and British all had tanks that were not too bad compared to the Germans' but they were only using them for infantry support.

I could write a long response but I don't want to clog up the TV Show thread with too much tank talk... ;)...but that is absolutely correct.  A large part of German tank superiority comes from the fact that to most Americans, the war started on June 6th 1944 when Tom Hanks hit the beaches and was pretty much over after he killed the only remaining Tiger tank with his .45.  In this period, the German tanks were in fact superior to pretty much every one else...so long as you discount the Russian front since that ended with the bizarre sex scene in Enemy at the Gates.  (In the same period - June - August 1944 the US, Brits, and Canadians were getting off the Normandy peninsula whereas the Russians had destroyed Army Group Center and had pushed deep into Poland.)  Otherwise, from 1939-1940 the French and British had superior tanks to the Germans, on the main, but they were poorly handled and piecemealed out.

I meant to comment on this before, but was too busy and got reminded of your post thinking about your pop's way with words.

Dude, I could totally see you writing some insane novelized WWII text. Working in scenes from various WWII flicks and stuff. A historical, satirical, WWII movie fan-fict opus. It could be pretty awesome.

You know, I had one once.  It was longer than the first two dozen Harry Plopper novels combined but then I feared that no-one would get the Tali-Ihantala/Skyrim panzerfaust to the chest reference and cried myself to sleep before throwing it away.


It ended like this:

Tom Hanks:  Where's my Matt Damon!
James Colburn:  You are my Matt Damon, Captain Hanks.
TH:  Fine I accept.  I'll show you how an American drama actor can fight.
JC:  And I'll show you where the Iron Crosses grow.

You gotta put money up. I know nothing about WWII movies really. Not exactly nothing, perhaps a little less.

As pretty much everything was either on Christmas break or over for the season, I've been watching stuff we have recorded over time. Mostly Sleepy Hollow and Agents of SHIELD.

It really goes downhill quickly. The writers got way too much freedom and killed whatever modicum of character development happened.

Waiting for Walking Dead and House of Cards to return.  Currently on the last season of Misfits (probably makes those who watch Six Feet Under look like a Saint)

I'm not a fan. It bugs me for reasons similar to the new Doctor Who series. However, my wife likes it so we'll be watching it.

I have been watching "Downton Abbey" since Season 4 started on Jan. 5th.  I am going to watch the first episode of "Sherlock" after "Downton Abbey" tomorrow night, since that is when my PBS station will be showing it.  I can't wait to see it.  I've read really good reviews of the show.  I may have to check the first couple of seaons out on the PBS website.

I can only extrapolate why you don't like it. I sorta like it, but I don't think it is very good outside pure entertainment (the guy who plays Watson I think does an excellent job). The third series might be more up your alley if my guess about why you didn't like the first two is correct. Then again, I think the very ending of the series will drive you nuts.

 Completely agree.  So much to explore and then... mediocre.  I heard an interview with the main guy (the writer, I think) and really enjoyed it.  He had some great ideas and mores to explore.  Not sure what happened.

Not really a 'reality tv' fan* (although Pawn Stars is neat), but there was a show that featured a single man dropped off into the wilderness alone with his cameras and survival knowledge.  I think it was Survivor Man.  That was a cool show.

Watched the first season of American Horror Story a bit ago.

Please don't do the same. So grotesque and convoluted to no end. They say the second and third seasons are better. The seasons are sorta stand alone from what I understand.

I can't believe Grimm is still running. Saw a bit of it the other day. Laughed the entire time. Garbage and I usually will watch anything that has an overriding arc except Dr. Who and now Grimm.

Ha, Grimm is terrible. It seems like there are about 30 different shows trying to be Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and none of them have a tenth of the wit to pull it off, leaving just dumb, cliche-ridden storytelling.

Yeah, I love The Good Wife. Kalinda is just plain sexy and the woman who plays her is a great actor. I looked into her because I told my dad, "Her accent tells me that she is British, but spent time in India." And sure enough I was right. But she is really good at accents and has gotten good reviews. I liked the introduction of Robin who is a nice contrast to Kalinda's harshness by being smart but clumsy, though with needing to keep her ob it's nice how they have made her more ambitious without taking away the gentleness of her character--compared to Kalinda's method as an investigator. Also I think the courtroom and cases are more realistic than Law and Order and dramas like that. The cases are not as clean cut. I really like the eccentric guy who always listened to Bach and was in love with Alicia.

I liked her in The Constant Gardener, even though she had a relatively minor role.  Not that I watched it for her...I watched it for someone else.  :P

The new lawyer for Lockhart & Gardner on The Good Wife is a nice addition, too. Adds a special fun to the show. Kalinda can't intimidate him like she can other men and if she tries to be sexy he plays along with it and even hits on her. I can't wait to see how the characters play out next season. With this new clown there is a new type of humour to the show, witty mixed with good old crude Irish fun.

Kalinda is just plain sexy and the woman who plays her is a great actor. I looked into her because I told my dad, "Her accent tells me that she is British, but spent time in India." And sure enough I was right. But she is really good at accents and has gotten good reviews.

She's come a long way from the airhead bride-to-be in Bend It Like Beckham. ;)

Great movie. Nowhere to go but down after it. The Good Wife looks absolutely reprehensible. I saw 10 minutes of the seasons opener and couldn't stop chuckling.

I can't believe Grimm is still running. Saw a bit of it the other day. Laughed the entire time. Garbage and I usually will watch anything that has an overriding arc except Dr. Who and now Grimm.

Ha, Grimm is terrible. It seems like there are about 30 different shows trying to be Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and none of them have a tenth of the wit to pull it off, leaving just dumb, cliche-ridden storytelling.

Jane Espenson I think has had something to with Once and other garbage. She is even on Game of Thrones I think which is almost worth watching for the first season.

She and Greenwalt are pretty much able to be counted to produce garbage.

Watched the first season of American Horror Story a bit ago.

Please don't do the same. So grotesque and convoluted to no end. They say the second and third seasons are better. The seasons are sorta stand alone from what I understand.

Gebre, please don't watch this.

The 2nd season is better; skip the 3rd season.

instantwatcher tells me the 2nd season is on netflix streaming, so I might give it a go.

I like Game of Thrones.

I like Game of Thrones.

Yeah, everyone seems to. Still junk. I've watched most of it. It is OK at times and borders once and awhile on the enjoyable, but it is pretty stupid TV.

I like Bones in a weird way but I also know it complete dreck.

Being an adult or having an ounce of critical ability is being able to separate who you like or dislike from that which good or bad.

When I say something is terrible, I relating a fact, which I can back up. When I say I like something it is really pointless personal information about myself.

I haven't seen the newest season of Bones. I feel like they left us hanging with Pelant (but maybe they've wrapped that up by now). And it is getting really repetitive. But I'll finish it out eventually.

Did you ever watch all of 30 Rock, orthonorm?

Bummer. They dragged it out way too long.
