  1. "Going"? ;)- But I think that's how they hook us. All we know is that someone is dead. No who, what. when, etc.
  2. This one is scaring the crap out of me so far this season. It's a little too "relevant". But the characters, dialogue and story lines are as good as ever.
  3. I never watched the original, and come to Legacy with no expectations or back story. But it's definitely worth the hour. Among this, Designated Survivor and Homeland (eerily relevant this season), Tom Hanks' Castaway island is looking really, really attractive. Though I'd miss Tiffany Hines.
  4. I like it. It's kind of old and formulaic (what isn't these days?), but Frank and Mike are amiable and interesting enough. It's another one of those shows where there's a lot to learn about people, places and things. That's especially true of Dani, who is SO much deeper than her pretty face and tattoos.
  5. Somewhere in the hinterlands of Siberia (is that redundant?), a 400 lb. 14 y/o is turning this into a story for the faux news empire
  6. Rude
  7. 'ello Love. I heard ( a little Danbird was spreading the news) you were here. Just wanted to pay my respects and give Dan his "woot". Since when are you old enough to be a grandmama? Happy, healthy new year to y'all. And in case things go south over here in the colonies, will you take us back, please?
  8. Art is like beauty and god rolled in one. It's in the eye of the beholder. And it's really serious, personal business for some. Those of us who have parented through the pre-school years recognize full well that the primary blue or yellow masterpieces hanging on the fridge are no less deserving of museum wall space than the white on white canvas that used to (and probably still does - it's such a masterpiece, dahling) hang in the MOMA in NYC. This big ape (5'x7') is called "Reclining Nude" and hangs in the Philadelphia Museum of Art (think "Rocky" steps). A poster of it used to be in my bathroom. Without uttering a word, this work says all l need to know about art. In the early 80's, NYC rolled out new trash cans that won all sorts of design awards. One of the city employees installing the new receptacles was asked his opinion of them He said, "It's a nice trash can. But is it art?" Then there's this oldie but goodie.
  9. Is anyone shameless enough to admit watching this Showtime series? It is so wrong on SO many levels (I think violent, physical child abuse is the only "line" they haven't crossed), but so funny and so good. I heart me some Emmy Rossum.
  10. It was fun while it lasted and exposed me to some new/different music.
  11. No. You just weren't high enough, apparently. I didn't get it either.
  12. HEY. Watch that. Why aren't the setlist threads up yet, Andrew?
  13. Have you met Doc? He's laughing his conservative ass off at that one.
  14. Hardly. He makes that stuff up; it's just he says it with such authority that we believe it. And to be fair, this isn't selfless work on his part; how do you think he's able to cultivate his hoard of chickies?
