  1. So wouldn't it make more sense to buy the DVD?
  2. I hate to say it, but he was one of those people I thought had died a long time ago.
  3. His bio on WaPo says Columnist. Of course, it also says he's from New York. Oops.
  4. I don't know, but it's pissing me off since I signed up for the early deal but can only get Max on my iPad, and HBO Now on my boob tube. Supposedly my cable company (Cox) will sell it to you, but it's not included in their Contour apps and their fine print says you can watch it on your tablet or phone. Nothing about the TV. It's all gotta be $$$ since they had the Peacock app up and running on day one. Roku and Amazon and HBO need to grasp that they're not going to make any money if they keep effing with their customers.

    We've already had guys, some very early in their careers, say no to CTE and opt out of football, so it's only surprising that even more haven't opted out rather than catch a deadly virus. They should listen to players like Von Miller who survived COVID-19 but had a rough go of it.

    "Comfort Viewing: 3 Reasons I Love ‘Columbo’"
  8. Just watched Stephen Colbert's interview with Mary Trump, and I couldn't help thinking how much better Stephen, a comedian, did eliciting good information and Mary Trump's insight as a psychologist than did Rachel, a veteran journalist. And he even cited Rachel's question about ethnic slurs to get Mary to reveal more information about the culture in which her uncle was raised. So when Michael Cohen's book comes out (please, before November!), Rachel better be ready with slam dunk, bang up interview questions.

    Columbo

    The repeat actor I could have done without is Shera Danese, Mrs. Falk. What a horrible actress. She took me out of every scene she was in, and it seemed like she was cast every chance her husband got. I didn't like the one with the kidnapped niece (I think it's the only episode without an actual murder). I agree on the Case of Immunity. Columbo Goes to College is not my favorite mostly because the bratty killers acted like it was just dumb luck that they got caught. Unlike most episodes, where the murderer comes to realize (and ruefully appreciate) at the end how they've been played by the wily Lieutenant. And I didn't really like the one with Janet Leigh. Having her diagnosed with a brain tumor and therefore off the hook for murder seems like a copout.
  10. Given that 7% of Americans think chocolate milk comes from brown cows, I'm not surprised at the number of people who allow themselves to be sucked into whackadoodle conspiracy theories. Someone who should have known better sent me a text in early May, asking me to look at a video which I found out later was Plandemic. She said a doctor forwarded it to her. Based on what she told me about it, I said I wasn't going to watch it and suggested she talk to our mutual friend at the CDC. And then looked it up and told her it was garbage. "If I'm in on this conspiracy, that means my puppet master is AT&T. And what makes you think they can pull off a global conspiracy when they can barely pull off a complete phone call." 😹😹😹😹😹 Friends don't let friends use AT&T. I noticed that two of the four PSA hosts hoping to teach Americans not to be idiots are Canadian. Really touching that Alex Trebek took the time to participate, given how sick he is.
  11. Hooray, Amazon Prime has finally, finally added profiles. No more do I have to scroll through all the shows my daughter watches, or be bombarded with recommendations based on what she watches. Now if I could just get Netflix to stop its damn autoplay (yes, I have the settings correct, and it autoplays anyway), all would be right with the world.

    Beth Wilkinson, IIRC, is the same lawyer who's arguing on behalf of Judge Emmett Sullivan in the appeal of Michael Flynn's dismissed charges. Don't think she's gonna roll over and do Danny's bidding.
  13. I think we know that Rachel is not the best interviewer, despite the sucking up by her colleagues. (Chris Hayes running a clip, plus calling it "an exclusive prime time interview." When it's not exclusive and is only aired in prime time but recorded some other time. How hard would a live interview have been? This isn't "60 Minutes." And then LOD, like he always does, spending his time playing footage from Rachel's interview as if she'd gotten the scoop of the century and as if his viewers hadn't already just seen it. Ugh.) I think she actually does better in the live settings, like when she talked to Kellyanne Conway and got good marks for not letting her off the hook. We didn't learn a damn thing. And the pre-publication shows followed by the interviews, because they've pretty much told us everything in the book, have actually made me less eager to read it. I debated buying it versus getting on the waiting list at the library. I'm #86 on 31 copies at the library and I can wait. I've said it before and it's probably not popular, but I really feel like Rachel has grown so in love with her ability to read out loud, from reading all those court transcripts, that she's lost her ability to edit herself. We don't need her reading us irrelevancies, like the times she narrates the pleasantries between the judge and the litigants that pass before she gets to the meat, and we don't need her reading every single detail from a book she's read that doesn't add to our understanding.
  14. She spends way too much time setting everything up, most of the time. She apparently assumes her show is the only source of knowledge any of her viewers reference, and feels the need to provide complete context for every.single.thing. Like all the times she does a big setup, then asks the guest if she got anything wrong...instead of just asking the guest to provide the explanation in the first place. And of course she did that with Mary Trump, too. And maybe without the interminable setup, more of the footage could have been aired. Clearly the throws to commercial were edited in later. It looks like the same shirt she wore for the George Stephanopoulos interview, just in a different color. Rachel already read enough of the book to us last week that I didn't really need to hear the whole story of how Mary Trump got involved with the documents that went to the NYT. I didn't gain anything by hearing it in Mary Trump's voice. So far, the only takeaway in the media from the interview is the confirmation that her uncle used the n-word.
