    Ghostbusters (2016)

    I could be remembering this wrong but I thought there were some even older marquees during that scene. I assumed they were the actual ghosts of NY's past.

    The Casting & Recasting Thread

    I couldn't buy Adam Driver in Star Wars as the son of . He's too unique looking to be cast as anyone's child. I also had a hard time with Leonardo Dicaprio and Cameron Diaz in Gangs of New York - they did not look or sound (emphasis on sound) like poor turn of the century Irish immigrants.

    I found him totally distracting in the new Star Wars movie for this reason. He was so unbelievable as the child of .

    Characters You Love To Hate...or just flat-out hate

    Kit Keller in A League of Their Own - all around awful and the ending totally ruins the movie

    S05.E03: High Sparrow

    If this article , and a number of other scholarly works, is to be believed - it wasn't just men who were marrying slightly older in England during the seventeenth century.

    S05.E03: High Sparrow

    This isn't all that true - a number of factors seem to have affected the age of first marriage at various points in history across all cultures. For example, the age of first marriage in England was possibly higher during parts of the 17th century than it was in 1950. The age of first marriage in the USA was also much younger in 1970 than in 1890 which you wouldn't expect if it was all based on cultural mores.

    S05.E04: The Sons Of The Harpy

    I didn't interpret it as something that was deliberate. I don't see germ theory being common knowledge in the GoT universe.

    Party of One: Unpopular TV Opinions

    After catching a few episodes of Grey's Anatomy in rerun, the only character that I liked was the doctor played by the Halfrek actress from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Everybody else was just awful.

    S11.E16: Don't Dream It's Over

    I always thought he had a nose job - it also looks a lot narrower at the tip then it used to.
  11. Granted I've never seen Grey's Anatomy, but every time I see Ellen Pompeo all I can think of is the creepy role she had on Law and Order where she helped rape and murder her sister.
  12. Not all kids who attend Christian schools are particularly religious either, especially once you get to the high school level.
  13. I didn't think it was that uncommon for boys to not reach their full heights until their late teens/ early twenties. My husband and most of my male cousins didn't stop growing until they were in college.
  14. That shows how long I actually watched the show - I had no idea Kerry was even a lesbian.

    Glad to see crispy M&Ms are back. Still miss the habanero flavored Doritos.
