  1. Fascinating to watch right now not just because of the BLM aspect that probably most of us were thinking of even long before, but because of the pandemic/quarantine plotline.
  2. We just finished watching all of season four in the last week. Does anyone know if this was actually renewed? IMDB lists a season 5 but with no details.
  3. One of my favorite movies of all time. Really well made. A lovely film. One of the best films to deal with class distinction in American life. The scene where Paul Dooley talks about the school buildings: "I was proud of my work. And the buildings went up. When they were finished the damnedest thing happened. It was like the buildings were too good for us. Nobody told us that. It just felt uncomfortable, that's all." Just kills me every time.
  4. I also thought the "Bagman" episode from Better Call Saul drew from this, and also from The Searchers. I believe Three Men and a Baby is considered a remake. While I like this version (there were several) of Three Godfathers a LOT and have recommended it more than once, especially as a Christmas film, an even better version is the 1936 one - darker, more painful, and thus earning its redemptive ending in a harder, more moving way. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0028367/?ref_=fn_tt_tt_2 It shows pretty regularly on TCM, keep an eye out for it.
  5. The Scarlet Coat was shown at 8 am on Sunday July 5th.

    So, this guy thinks that Columbo was the only admirable TV cop. I can think of others but he's got a point. Plus Columbo is my FAVORITE TV cop. https://medium.com/humungus/columbo-is-the-only-good-tv-cop-66359478253a
  7. Oh man, your mom was BOSS. That was a MAD Magazine parody song.
  8. Chez Rat they are all referred to as "hair thingies" and a ruder name as well - but hair claws are also referred to as "thingies."

  10. Doctor Who is nowhere near as big an offender on this as the American and Canadian shows like Timeless, Legends of Tomorrow, Warehouse 13, Murdoch Mysteries, Frankie Drake Mysteries, etc. Of course I don't really take it seriously and just snicker through that stuff on the above shows since they are comedies.
  11. LOL. This is the TV crushes thread, you don't have to apologize for noticing and appreciating somebody's looks.
  12. I imagine that’s already the plot of a dystopian YA novel. I suppose so. It's part of the plot of Brave New World by Aldous Huxley.
  13. And geez, that's not depressing at all. 😭 The weirdest thing about writing this post was searching the Emoji Pantry and I'm still not sure I picked the right one. 😞
  14. Back in the day they would have THROWN SOMETHING INTO THE MIRROR and SMASHED it.
  15. Sweeter than a hungry cat in a chicken coop. Damn but that is weak. If I can't imagine Jim Ross hollering it at a wrestling match it just doesn't seem like much of a Southern catchphrase. "he's serving up a restaurant-quality slobberknocker!" "he's stompin a mudhole and walkin it dry!" "he's runnin like a scalded dog!"
