  1. I had my doubts when I heard Clancy Brown was playing LBJ, but he was really good. I've seen a couple of movies about LBJ (one with Woody Harrelson and one with Bryan Cranston) and in each of them he carried on business while sitting on the toilet with the door open to his office. It's too specific a thing to have been made up. By comparison, this was tame.
  2. In the podcast they mention that the gates were secured with "The Club", which if you are of a certain age you might remember as this thing you locked across the steering wheel of your car to prevent it being stolen. Can Janets be unmarble-ized? It always sounded like a pretty final end to me.
  3. Just saw this in an ETonline article about the new cast and it was news to me:
  4. It's bizarre to see a CO$ follower referred to as "a parishioner".
  5. Yes, it will bring some balm for us poor Amazing Race fans who have to wait a year between seasons.
  6. I have no idea what that trailer means.
  7. Yeah, and unfortunately on the Bakeoff podcast about the Final last week, Jane made a reference in passing that made it obvious that whatever special she had appeared on she had won. Since this was about a show that aired over 10 months ago - in the UK - it could hardly have been considered a spoiler, but it was for me in the US. I wish we had the tradition here in the US of having a special of a series air on Christmas Day. It would sure beat 24 hour marathons of It's a Wonderful Life or A Christmas Story (the death of Matthew Crawley on Downton Abbey being the exception).
  8. In the last few days I've started to have this same problem. @SilverStormm, I read your post about updating the unread status in Activity Streams as a potential solution and I tried it, but I'm a little confused because I have never used Activity Streams. Should I only have to update this once and it will apply to all threads, or will I have to do it in each thread? Also, when I click on the Save Changes button it says I must name this new Activity Stream, and I'm unclear if I do this whether it will affect how I normally use the forums. (Apologies if this sounds incredibly stupid, but I use Manage Followed Content exclusively and have never experimented with anything else.) Dell laptop, Windows 10, Microsoft Edge.
  9. Surely one "I'm sorry" isn't enough to tip the balance?
  10. It wasn't just the 100,000 pounds, it was the "Give us 100,000 pounds so we can be self-sufficient." That was priceless.
  11. Knocking on more wood, I haven't seen them lately, either.
  12. Interview with showrunner Peter Morgan in the NYT Magazine (includes things that are going to be covered in S3 and S4 but no real spoilers): https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/06/magazine/the-crown-peter-morgan.html?action=click&module=MoreInSection&pgtype=Article&region=Footer&contentCollection=The New York Times Magazine
  13. I read the books but it was many years ago. I am quite fond of the movie, although I understand why it was a flop. There're just too many groups and story arcs in the book to condense it to 2 hours and have it make any sense. But the casting (Nicole Kidman, Daniel Craig, Sam Elliot, etc.) was top-notch and the special effects won an Oscar. That being said, I was underwhelmed by the first episode, but there is - understandably - a lot of stage setting going on. I find Lyra very annoying, and it will take some time for me to get on her side. I realize she's not meant to be a sweet girl. An ongoing criticism is that apparently here is yet another director who is entranced with natural light and therefore the whole film is too damn dark.
