That's pretty cool Six. How many languages do you know? I wish I was a polyglot. Anyway, I know that's still no excuse (subtitles). I just know me too well. I'm too much of a multitasker to stare at the screen nonstop. Only way is with audio assist. lol

Holy crap! The hail is coming down hard right now.:-\  Maybe I better turn everything off til this blows over?

I have reading knowledge of 4 languages, other than English.  I sound stupid in most of them.  But if I pay good attention I can understand them when spoken after a while.  It helps to stay in practice.

Hey Schmoogs, you should watch Barry. It has the insult "You are king of suckballs mountain!"

lol, on rewatch, I missed quite a bit in this scene. The shooter can't shoot, but was afraid to tell NoHo Hank because of power dynamics.

Hank doesn't know how to hire assassins, and makes a joke about going to John Wick Hotel

Hank was pretty solid with dying right there, because he respects Barry (Even though he just tried to kill him)

Hank is just fantastic. Interestingly enough, he doesn't shave his eyebrows, he just has no hair. Most of his acting jobs he has to wear fake eyebrows and wigs, but holy poo does he sell a character.

I will check it out. I wish the nurse would hurry up and dress it up so I can go home. Only took 2 stitches. I really need to be more careful.

My only complaint is that it's 30 minutes instead of an hour.

It's like, a soothing drink after Game Of Thrones kicks you in the balls with bad writing. (A lot of people are saying this online)

Ouch.  That reminds me of the Star Trek where Doc went back in the future with Spock & Kirk and freaked out over 20th c. healing procedures.  He said "they cut and sew people like they were garments!"

IV, he calls them barbaric, then gives an old woman a pill that makes dialysis irrelevant.


It ages extremely poorly. Nowadays it looks like they were gods acting like complete retards in the 1980's.


Also kind of weird they give so few shits, when previously, a Whacked out on drugs McCoy managed to end WWII, in NAZI GERMANY's favor.


Also weird that Joan Collins had to die, but Catherine Hicks can just hitch a ride to the future, where she'd be on the intellectual level of a four year old.

Oh, and the reason they're at the hospital in the first place is because they sent Uhura and Chekov, the ONLY DANG RUSSIAN ON THE SHIP aboard the 1986 USS Enterprise to steal NUCLEAR MATERIAL. With scanners that looked like C4 charges.


He fell off a ledge. Oh, but when he was being interrogated by the marines they thought he was retarded.


I did like that Dr. Taylor immediately dumped Kirk, he was a shitty date. Invite a girl to dinner, and then expect her to pay for him and his hippy friend? richard move, Admiral.

little c might be amused by the fact that apple computers are featured in the film, it's an Apple Plus.

I watched a couple episodes of Barry tonight as it was quicker than the usual two hour long episodes of Diablo Guardían.  It's entertaining enough.  I'm waiting to see if it develops into something more.

I'm so tired these days, that anything can entertain me at that time of day.

I think that might be why Barry takes the edge off Thrones, it's a very simple plot.

He kills people. He's good at it. He craves something else. Sadly, something else drags him back into killing people.

He's still good at it.

Everyone else is bad at everything.

I also think Sarah Goldberg is running over the Sally Character. Like Sally is a self absorbed narcissist, but more is being done with her than that.

I also heard she ran way over on her rant in the latest episode, and it's fantastic. You go from Barry doing his stupid "poo-pie" rehearsal to her just tearing down the Whedon style woman empowering poo that's always written by men.

And then they cut to Bill Hader, who had just done the "Who wants some pieeeee" line, and he's got the thousand yard stare on. Most shows would have cut that.

Ha, I'm VERY familiar with that Star Trek episode. I was even MORE of a Star Trek TNG fan. Jesus, that was 30 years ago. How depressing.

Hey, this scallywag hurts. It didn't hurt last night? At least I had a nice pork roast dinner ready when I got home last night. I'm gonna go in there and chow on  some more of it for breakfast.  ;)

I shouldn't have posted that pic. That's kinda gross. Sorry.  ???

Longer, Enterprise is coming up on 18 years now. Only thing I liked about that is they actually had a main computer for the enterprise.

Well, eight macs working in tandem.

Yup, NX-01 ran on Tiger. I used to have cool shots of the actual machines, but that's long gone.

I have a Powerbook 92 still plugged in.  It takes floppy discs.  Has a 256 Mb memory.  I like the background pattern and the Water Balloons game on there.  It has a trackball.  It works better than my Macbook Air.  That's got to have the crappiest trackpad in the history of the world.  That's what happens when Apple gets too comfortable and decides to throw their energy into cell phones and now, what next?  TV shows?

Other than Barry, nothing much going on in TV land.  Watching the end of GoT was agonizing, like going to the funeral of your drunk great uncle and knowing that he'd think the whole process was absurd.  It was hard to sit through it.  I'm done with Diablo Guardian and would be happy to find something else.  The Good Fight has gotten nearly unbearably stupid.  Not that it was all that good in the first place.  Just another nighttime lawyer drama on the CBS women's network.  Gak.  Sometimes I wonder why I watch it.  Maybe I miss my childhood afternoons trying to puzzle out As the World Turns.  At least when those soap operas were over we got good 4 p.m. movies with Godzilla, House on Haunted Hill (Vincent Price version), House of Wax, Mothra, you know, the classics.

CBS Women's Network? lol That's funny. Well, you know what I think about 99% of the crap on TV. I started watching the 'Naked & Afraid' reality shows on Discovery. 2 strangers, 1 male, 1 female are dropped off naked in the middle of the wilderness and they have to survive for 21 days. What cracks me up is when they guy drops out after a couple days and the woman makes it the whole 21 days. lol "I hope she doesn't drag me down man, but, I will try to help her along". 3 days later: "Boo hoo hoo, I'm tapping out man, I wanna go home. Waa waa waa!" LMAO! bless'ed cracks me up.
