  • Fringe will do for now- until it is finally gone after its next half season Is anyone watching Tron Uprising? I tried, but it looked really boring and repetitious, Couldn't finish the prequel episode. Ancient Aliens should be mandatory for all geeks with senses of humor about the origins of humankind The choices we have as citizens of Earth are interesting- we are either alien spawn -- or descendant's of Adam's Rib or some other God like deity, depending on your religious preference......OR...................anyone got any other possibilities?????????????????

    I've started my yearly summer Lost Watchback

    by Paul

    Watched House of the Rising Sun and was thinking, we know that Jin had a plan to escape and that Paik had him followed to prevent that as was revealed in a later episode, but what about Sun? Did Daddy know about her plan to run away? Was the same guy or even a second one of Paik's men following her also?

    Bill Maher GO AWAY!

    by Stygian

    For the love of Alice Eve, HBO: Cancel Bill Maher. Atriously unknown, unfunny hack "comedian" who chases women with a geriatric body less than half his age and is a general laughing stock. Bill Maher to HBO as Tim & Eric is to Adult Swim. Horrible!!!

  • May 25, 2012, 5:56 p.m. CST

    ^^^yep, yep!^^^

    by jay2517

    unfortunately, HBO doesnt function on ratings, if so, the racist, bigoted, misogynist etc. would have been fired a looong time ago....

    Bill Maher is appeals only to the stupidest viewers.

    by Atomike2

    If you actually enjoy him, your time would be better spend reading a book.

    I'm still giving Magic City a chance...

    by Chest_Rockwell

    After a few rough episodes to start with, it's starrrrrrrting to pick up a bit. Danny Huston is good in just about everything he does, and he's good here. And Jeffrey Dean Morgan is sort of evolving into a good character too. His sons, still seem a bit one dimensional, but after the first 6 episodes or whatever they've had, they are starting to flesh them out a bit.... It's not breaking bad, but, i'm still giving it a chance for a few more episodes.

  • May 26, 2012, 12:27 a.m. CST

    pa and mcgoo...

    by jay2517

    i forgot to respond to ur posts lol. the sheer idiocy and bile that comes from Maher does that to a man lol. mcgoo- i totally agree with ur opinion on Lost. absolutely the best TV show to date. i highly doubt there will be a show like that again because of the internet becoming such a HUGE force in peoples viewing habits. Lost was popular right before the second *internet boom* and used it only to enhance the experience of it. ie with the online stuff. with todays viewing habit no one will be patient with a show like Lost. its sad really... pa- i admire ur dedication to ur yearly watchbacks. wish i had the time brotha! with my little girl getting older im hoping she will watch it with me. she and my little one always ask me about the big Lost Complete Collection i have in the living room lol. i really enjoyed reading about ur watchback in ur old blog back in the day.

  • May 26, 2012, 12:34 a.m. CST

    Thanks Jay!

    by Paul

    I enjoy doing the watchbacks and talking about them! You have a complete collection? Man I'm jelious! I already had seasons 1 - 5 so it didn't make sense to me to plunk down another $200 for a set, Maybe when the Bku_Ray set comes out, if we haven't already gone digital already. Since I have to have something on while I draw its ideal for me to do watchbacks.

  • May 26, 2012, 12:37 a.m. CST

    Oh by the way I just got back from MIB 3

    by Paul

    Man I really had a great time! Just a fun movie. I enjoyed the first two, (1 better then 2) Felt that this one hit all of the right notes for an MIB and even had a tender moment at the end. Won't spoil it for you since "You don't want to ask questions that you don't want an answer to!"

  • May 26, 2012, 1:43 a.m. CST

    "jackdeth- from Maher." hahhahahaaa so true!

    You really showed me with that one! You're so funny and clever! I wish I could be just like you!

  • May 26, 2012, 9:32 a.m. CST

    pa- i done the reverse of u lol...

    by jay2517

    ...i had the first 3 seasons and when they announced they were doing 6 i told myself i'll just wait for the entire run. plus, i had seasons 4 and 5 on dvr i think and u could watch it on at the time. and they already have the Complete Collection on Blu Ray. i was debating on getting it at the time but didnt want to buy a Blu player just for that and low and behold my dvd player goes out a month later LOL! BTW- nice shout out to "Across The Sea" lol :)

  • May 26, 2012, 9:36 a.m. CST

    Fringe: John Noble Looks Towards the Final Season

    by Paul

    Fringe: John Noble Looks Towards the Final Season The Fringe star on what he'd like to see as the series draws towards the end. by Eric Goldman May 25, 2012 With the happy news that Fringe had defied the ratings odds and was renewed for a fifth and final season, I recently had the chance to briefly chat with John Noble ("Walter Bishop") at last week's FOX Upfront presentation. While production has not resumed yet, Noble told me his thoughts on going into the final year of the series and what he'd like to see resolved by the end of Fringe: Season 5. IGN TV: Congratulations on the renewal! What did you guys think when you heard it? John Noble: It seemed like the logical thing to do, for are all sorts of reasons - certainly story-wise. I think it’s a good thing for television to do to keep its audience. We’ve done on our job on Friday nights, what was expected of us, so there’s really no reason for us not to keep going. IGN TV: And as you mentioned when you did our podcast, you had that last scene in the season finale -- people would have been going crazy if we didn’t see what was going to happen next. Noble: Oh, God, yeah. I know. IGN: You don't go back to work for a couple of months. Have they given you any inkling of what's to come? Noble: Well, probably what I’ve told you already. I think that episode 419 that we did is the way forward. IGN: “Letters of Transit,” right. Noble: Yeah, exactly. Yes. That will show the way ahead. But I’m not sure yet. We've had preliminary talks, but that’s it. IGN: What's it like for you knowing that this begins the Fringe farewell tour? I was thinking, “Aw, this is Fringe's last Upfront.” It's a little sad, but at least you have that closure. Noble: No, it’s a wonderful feeling to have closure. We know that when we do things for the final time, we’ve done them. The last scene we do together, we'll be doing the last scene together. I’d say it’s glorious. IGN: Suffice it to say, I feel we’ve got to see William Bell again. Noble: Given that we saw his hand in “Letters of Transit!” IGN: Yes! Noble: I actually haven’t had that discussion with anyone, truthfully. [Leonard Nimoy] was terrific when he came back for those two episodes. He did a brilliant job, and I know he had a good time. I don’t know. I simply don’t know. But he would always be a popular choice, I think. IGN: Is there anything you’d like to see by the end of the show, either a character moment or a plot tun you’ve always wanted to see? Noble: There needs to be resolution of the Triumvirate. Basically, we’ve been pulled together in this strange, dysfunctional little family. There has to be some, in a spiritual sense, some sort of resolution of that. I think they’ll give us that too. I think Walter’s got to take responsibility of what he’s responsible for, and I think there’s something rather noble in that if we can make it work. IGN: Do you think that we’ll see the "other side" one more time? Noble: I don’t know. I’d like to, but I don’t think so. I don’t think we need to go back there. We gave them a really good farewell. IGN: Yes you did. It was very emotional. Noble: It was very touching, wasn’t it? We will miss them.

  • ... wasnt that a shout out to what the mother implied in that episode? i thought u were doing a rift on that particular scene lol.

  • May 26, 2012, 3:08 p.m. CST

  • repeat from last weeks TB: Same here! Holidays in Denmark - and the Internet mysteriously followed... and me and wifey going out to the beach... couldn't be better! Well, you know, Denmark is not exactly an island, where you can get lost... anyway, it's nice to have both: The beach and the interwebs. Update: Back from Denmark, having no beach, still having wifey with me, thinking slowly because drinking fast... hehe. But, Jay, i know where you were getting at with ATS. One of my favourite shows of LOST. (Well, Pa and Jay, you know how I felt about the following eps, so I won't cross that territory again.. LOL) Hope, all stays well with both of you! Your progressive friend... wait, Jay, there's something I have to tell a *friend* of yours - again! Coming right after this entry!

    Well said, Jay! Doesn't matter if lostASS or Creepy ASS!!

    by wtriker1701

    He's trapped anyway... in his own A$$! And yes, you and me share common sense - sadly not all of the Talkbackers do... SEE, how it's done, you Others? Sometimes you just have to follow a debate and recognize the failures of argumentation. Insult is not the answer - Listening (or Reading) is! Jay MAY have some insulting answers to MAHER, but to answer him is not to throw insults AGAINST him. He IS provocative, but that's EXACTLY what EVERY nation's citizen should BE! BE AWAKE! Conservatives or Progressives (Dermocrats)! FIND arguments that DO mean something! Am I content with Chancellor Merkel - HELL NO! Am I content with politics over here in the newly *reborn* European Union? HELL NO! I strongly believed, Obama would have been the rightful answer to George W. Bush... but the system failed to reach me. The politics never changed... no matter whether Republican nor Democrat. They seem to both sides of the VERY same medal. To be a democrate had a meaning some time ago... but all polish washed away the once proudly drawn lines... Liars are found on either side of the fences... and The Atlantic Ocean doesn't wash away any guilt of either side. It's in our own responsibility to find the guidelines (again) to be better persons than we are. To stand for the rights for EVERY man and EVERY woman living here on Earth, whether they live in Ethiopia, Bulgaria, Bejing or North Dakota! THAT'S what every single person on Earth should try to achieve. It has never been about the money, it's all there. Don't divide the banks by different currencies, get ONE currency for ALL OF THEM. The different economics will find a way to deal with it... AS LONG AS: All speculations, all tradings, all credit swap defaults will go TO HELL! NO virtual money swapping around the word, just REAL money for every country, every nation, every continent! The riches are not the problem, the virtual money is - as are the virtual debts every nation has. For WHOM are they? WHO are the debitors? Those are the questions that NEED to be answered. In every country, every nation, every continent. We, The People, EVERYWHERE around the globe deserve to getting along with each other! WAR was yesterday, NOW we have to find peaceful solutions for EVERYONE! You want to read it...? Here it goes! FACT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (That's for you, termy)

    I couldn't have said it better myself. Jay and I live down the road from each other and share the same beliefs on many things. I just want everyone to get along. I am a registered Republican, but I am disappointed in the whole system. Here in the U.S., it seems that politics has gotten to be a money thing. In my opinion, it has gotten to the point where the majority of them are crooks and will do what they can to get a few bucks. Peace!!

  • and because you think talking about Lost amounts to sitting around playing TIddlywinks -you should just watch Marmaduke over and over - and then come back here to talk about it I used to have your same attitude- I grew out of it - maybe you need to spend your time more wisely than just personally attacking someone, the same way, week after week- tyou might like yourself better in the morning

  • I am blessed with a few very good friends- and now count the 2 of you among them, even though we will never meet in the real world - be well guys and enjoy the holiday and the start of what is going to be a great summer!!!!!!!

    YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF FOR EVER LETTING JERKS LIKE JAY2517-90210 GET A FREE PASS. THAT is a FACT. A sad one. How quickly things change. :(

    I'm not trying to be funny. AND Who is MARMADUKE?? ?

  • I would hope in your real life you are a pleaseant chap to be around- your fake persona here is just a waste of anyone's time, including your time to type out your facts. And if you are not trying to be funny or clever, are you just trying to be merely insulting? What a waste of time for someone who must have better things to do than whatever it is you are doing here. I've had plenty of friendly and informed conversations with folks here, gave up on the futility of trying to talk politics here, but still find it difficult to give advice to people like you without an edge of insult. No one cares what you think of conservatives who don't like Bill Maher. Got anything else to say beyond whatever the hell it is you do here on this Friday thread? No? Yes? Her's you change to start a real conversation about something..... got it in ya, squire? Movies, TV, comics, any geek stuff at all..... likes, dislikes? How's the weather where you are? Are you anything more than your copycat format persona? You just makes progressives look bad.... give it a rest if you care about such impressions..... I'm suggesting this for your own good, but if you're just stuck in *teenage rebel* mode -- I can understand your juvenile sounding veneer, if that is what you want people to think ,that is what you are going to get, and you are now pegged as such.... enjoy....

    damn - too many typos - getting my post-op cataract surgery to remove scar tissue in my right eye that has blinded me, but have to wait 2 more weeks

  • try to learn from these observations-I have a feeling you are a better person than you are presenting here- can we see that side of you? Or are you just into the same insults over and ove, week after week? I guessyou might find some solace in such behavior- in any case, you can be better and better, every day, in every way- or you can just tell us your facts, but no one cares but you.... I agree with your stance by the way- there are just better ways of expressing it - unless you just enjoy being the punching bag object of ridicule that you heve firmly established yourself as...

    Hey MccGooToo

    by Paul

    Did you see Justice League? The Blue Beetle stuff was a little slow, but it was cool how its being worked into the bigger picture, just awesome writing! Anyways I loved the girl team with Batgirl, Wonder Girl Miss Martin and the Bee girl (forgot her name at the moment) I was thinking though where was Super Girl? I guess that Wonder Girl and Super Girl were too many super powered characters and would blend into each other? I love the super girl friends shorts with Batgirl, Super Girl and the other Wonder Girl. Thunder Cats was awesome like always and I loved how the Red Lantern attack on Green Lantern was handled. I would guess that now that they are back on Oa that we might get the Sinestro story along eventually the Yellow Lantern Corps. Maybe even later the Orange Lanterns.

    Hey Pa, maybe you overread me earlier... one question for you:

    by wtriker1701

    What happened to your forum? Greetings from Platjenwerbe!

  • May 27, 2012, 5:31 p.m. CST

    Well you know the phrase "Use it or Lose it"?

    by Paul

    The forum kind of died out after awhile, I kept it going just in case a need would come up, but I recently checked into it and found that it was gone with a message saying that since no one had been using it that they pulled the plug, so its gone now.

    paburrows_rises - yes indeed- another great animation weekend

    by Michael Lunney

    I also like The Atom short, even though it was too short!!!! Green Lantern & Young Justice are almost TOO good - too good for TV certainly. Superior SF AND superhero action defines Green Lantern, and Young Justice is so perfectly realized, my mind and hurt body are transported to a state of enraptured nirvana whenever I see them. I was never into Thundercats, so that is one I don't watch, but happy to see you are enjoying it. I guess I was just too old when the first incarnation aired. Were the Avengers and Spiderman reruns, or did I miss them this week? I have both series set to automatically record. Just wondering if you saw them as new episodes or were they reruns

    Hope that your eyes heal quickly! I have keratoconus which is an eye condition where the top of the eye goes cone shaped and the vision goes a little distorted. I have special glass lenses to help my vision.

  • Avengers and Spiderman, reruns? Do you see normally with the glasses?

  • Almost so that I don't think about it, but theres a difference between wearing them and not, more blurred without them. My glasses also have a slight tint to them since my eyes are extra sencitive to bright lights. (Car lights at night, etc.) Yeah I think that Avengers & Spiderman are reruns. Acording to Green Lantern supposedly was a Season finale.

    u REALLY have changed. at first i thought u were being flippant, but by reading ur posts the last few months...u really have turned over a new leaf! im honestly impressed. makes me think there IS hope on AICN and, by a little part, the world lol. im glad that u consider me a friend and u never know if maybe meeting in person is not such a far fetched idea. AICN cookouts with bitter enemies turned amigos has a nice ring to it :)

  • ...u STILL dont comprehend what i posted about u, do u LOL?? and u obviously have no perception of what the word deflection means, do u?? ill give u a hint....bringing up conservatives like El Rushbo and The Hannster etc. in a Bill Maher talkback is THE very definition of it little feller. and, BTW, i have NEVER endorsed or condoned anything they have said in in ANY forum. why must progressives ALWAYS resort to that? even if what u say is true, ur condoning two wrongs making a right *sigh*. i have free will and a free mind. maybe u should try it one day? LEAVE UR BASEMENT!!!

    Actually they did have a rough outline

    by Paul

    but the details like most shows weren't fleshed out. But ether way I was having a speculation discussion.

  • I do wonder about The Prisoner, though - the original- was that ending planeed in advance? THen again, it is British....

  • ...for the idiot whiners... translation- *Lost didnt end the way i wanted it to end, so it sucks*. it was a idiotic crybaby response then and it still is now.
