    Chuck and Jimmy's relationship is a great story line.  Frankly, after outrightly despising Chuck for what he did to Jimmy, this season everything Chuck has said is true.  Nicely done by the writers.  There's a lot the writers have here to work with, so why rush it to the "Breaking Bad" precipice so quickly?  If they want a long life for the series, they won't rush it at all.

    True, but with a tiny 10-episode season I want something "important to the series" to happen in each one.  I'll be tempted to start skipping episodes if it's just going to be another hour of angry stares and chin-rubbing.

    And once they've driven me to the point of skipping episodes, I'll probably, reluctantly, stop watching.

    Not going to post spoilers but the first two episodes seem three hours long each.  So slow and boring.  Terrible.

    I can't bring myself to call it terrible because I love all the characters.   But it's going wayyyyy too slow for being 6 episodes in.  Disappointing.

    Dont forget the Members Only jackets. 


    And their socks never show above their shoes. And their shirts have little straps so their rolled-up sleeves don't fall down.

  4. Just my opinion-- I think they're the same..but each band's appeal comes from a different perspective.

    Zeppelin has an amazingly original sound that provides a clinic on Rock's blues roots. But personally I found them too edgy to really reach me. In their time, they seemed more tuned in to bullies and the 'tough guy' crowd.

    The Who's songs weren't as unique musically, and their sound was more 'pop'.  ...but Pete Townsend authored them to have interesting messages, and the albums often had continuity & storylines that were compelling.

  5. Sorry, can't be real.

    I've seen people on tv move their mike like 1foot away and their voice *disappears*.  

    This is way too loud, unless they mic'd it, and if they did, Chris wouldn't have been surprised.  I just don't see it happening.

  6. Probably too late to help, but I put this little gem on my roof and wonderful things happened.   For the money I don't think I could get better.  Just get it as high as you can, pointed generally in the direction of most tv stations' antennas.  There are websites where you can get them mapped.

    ...The box was missing an accessory bag with some spacers, but I called and they sent a bag free. I didn't mind the issue because the antenna works so well.  

    We use the antenna, Hulu, & Amazon Prime.  For cable series I enjoy, like AMC shows, I buy the season on Amazon.  We can also buy HBO now, which is cool.

    Sports is tough.  For me, it's either local, or I get more work done in the yard.  That's not so bad.

  7. With age, and just a little experience riding around on this planet, most of us begin to see examples of the lottery that is human reproduction.  The odds of something going wrong are 1 in a hundred, but there are 100 things that can go wrong. So you just never know.  Until it's a member of your family.  Your perfectly normal kid brother or sister, with whom all your earliest memories are tied, starts to get ...different.   You ache for that person to do better; to have a normal life they deserve. But it doesn't happen, and they don't receive it.  This planet loves to sh*t on some of us like that. So you do all you really can do; remind them you love them and you cheer like hell when they win a competition of any kind.  You're not cheering because they're great at it, or even good at it...you're cheering because there isn't a person on this f**cking earth who deserves to smile more than they do.

  8. I'm in Michigan, a few miles down the street from MSU.  I just want to say *thank you* for Shilique Calhoun.  The guy's been a rock star since he was a freshmen.

    As for the Jets, it would be sweet if he could help the team.   He's local and he's used to wearing green.  I think it needs to happen.
