Re: Elijah Wood

So although the premise of this series seems ... well, goofy isn't the right word at all. Ridiculously stupid is two words ... I'll keep trying.... Anyway, I think Elwood would actually be pretty good at comedy. I remember his stint as host on SNL during the ROTK hubbub, it was brilliant! He showed ...

These kids are so whiny, and the series is so ... diabetic. NTY. :roll:

Re: News Sources

I am an admitted and proud NPR junkie. :mrgreen: I don't find it as biased as right-wingers like to think. I don't try to say it doesn't have a progressive slant to its reporting, but it's not nutty like most media outlets. I still get a local town paper, but it's becoming more and more worthless. I...

Re: Guillermo Del Toro quits 'The Hobbit'!

I don't know about that, Keith. Seems to me that LOTR was the successful one of the bunch, I totally see the "suits" thinking they can revive the genre and make a ton of money. Plus, who in Hollywood can resist making sequels! The only thing I see as being risky and causing pause is doing ...

Whoops, I meant MGM (not sure where I got Warner Bros. from :? ).

Re: Guillermo Del Toro quits 'The Hobbit'!

It's sad. Reading into the story a bit, about all the troubles at Warner Bros., it's not surprising. They're basically owned by investment bankers now, and we all know how brilliant those folks are. :roll: Maybe it's better if The Hobbit never gets made. If bean counters are running the show, it'll ...

Re: Tea drinkers unite!

Earl grey & green tea for me. I also like certain varieties of spiced chai teas. Not a fruity tea guy (I don't call those "teas" at all :P ) or an herb tea guy. I drink probably 3-4 cups a day. I started it to stay off the soda. Soda, even diet stuff, is so horribly bad for you and (IM...

Re: Lost

It was also stated that the final shot of the plane wreckage on an empty beach was something added by ABC.


Pffft, leave it to the suits to screw up things by tossing in stuff at a whim. Damn corporate weenies!!! :roll:

Re: Gulf Oil Spill Map

This is bad, BUT to answer Cassie's question, I think that when you're working at depths like that, and given the catastrophe that proceeded this (when was the last time an oil drilling platform exploded like that??), and the depth of the water, I think it's perfectly reasonable to consider that you...

if there ever was a red-shirt I thought Miles was it!


LOL!!! Yeah, thought so too, but I figured he's far too annoying for them to kill off. :P

Re: Lost

So why couldn't anyone who got pregnant on the island carry to term? The fact that they couldn't would make sense if they were dead along - which I don't believe for all the reasons Locks outlined. Two reasons, depending on what camp you're in. If you're a physicist, it was the strong electromagnet...

Re: Lost

They didn't die in the plane crash, and that's one thing I was very glad for. Um, are you sure? The scene during the closing credits of the Oceanic 815 wreckage in total silence, to me indicates they really were all dead. There's nothing going on at the island except wind. Overall, I'm pleased with...

Re: Lost

I don't remember being this interested in a season finale in a looooong time. :D Usually shows jump the shark long before the end, I end up so disinterested I don't care. I'd have to go back to Star Trek: DS9 or Babylon 5 I think. But LOST , I'm going to actually watch it on Sunday night in its allo...

Re: Lost

I'm with ya, MerryB. They had a big "reveal" show, but it left more questions. What is this smoke monster really? Why can Jacob never die? Who was their mother? Why did they start betting on humanity? How did Jacob leave the island and search for replacements? Ugh, they almost shouldn't ha...
