    by Itchy

    they need to feature Kathleen Robertson's tits every episode. They're fabulous. It worked for Shameless - it can work for Boss !

    by Norman Colson

    the characters Stonebridge and Scott is the best action tag team since murtagh and riggs, since chewie and han solo, since batman and robin... this show kicks ass and deserves more viewers. it's bullshit, because no one seems to talk about it here, all they care about is Dr. fucking who and warehouse 13...

  • Aug. 24, 2012, 7:28 p.m. CST

    Hi guys. Hope all is well for each of you. I had a bad moment a couple of weeks ago. I was on the way to the $2.50 cinema to catch a 9:20pm show with my girlfriend, and there was a wreck at a stoplight. A guy on a motorcycle had hit a car. It had just happened. I pulled over so my gf(who is a nurse) could help if possible. There was another nurse there also. They kept him stable until the ambulance got there. In the meantime, a lady in a SUV started screaming "Is that my husband?" oer and over. It was. She had two of their 3 kids with her. She did't have a license, only an ID, so the police woudn't let her drive(not that she needed to). So I drove her and the kids to Baptist with my gf following in our car. Poor guy didn't make it. So, we ended up going to see Total Recall(it was the only thing playing). That night will stick with me for a while.And Pa, I loved your vacation. I hope I can go on one like that some day. Take care guys!!

    Wow, Jay needs to get laid or something ...

    by Judge Briggs

    And he's begging to be banned by Herc with his pointless taunts in his direction.

  • Aug. 25, 2012, 10:44 a.m. CST

    Boss really needs to be on a better network

    by OutsideChance

    ...if it were on AMC, Showtime or HBO it would watercooler TV. Unfortunately, its on the equivalent of a UHF channel in 1972 when it comes to number of potential viewers.

  • Aug. 25, 2012, 11:24 a.m. CST

    wow, longbaugh, sorry to hear that amigo!

    by jay2517

    was wondering where u been. hope everything is ok. BTW- pa's vacation did look pretty fun :)

  • ...not surprised. and WHAT is it with all the sexual projection from u tb'ers on here?? just because YOU dont, doesnt mean others arent lol. yeessh! BTW- why would the fucking hack Herc ban me for posting the truth? hes IS a fucking hack. u DO read his partisan hack posts,correct? besides, he IS a "registered republican", so he obviously believes in freedom of speech. *rolls eyes*...

  • Aug. 25, 2012, 4:04 p.m. CST

    Good for you, mrlongbaugh. Hell of a great thing to do

    by angry kitty

    Many people wouldn't have gotten involved. Wonderful to know there are still some decent people in this world. You & your girlfriend are pretty awesome. Thank you.

  • I just got word today in the mail that my eye doctor died - so much tragedy lately - - He just operated on my eye a few months and he seemed fine then....... And Neil Armstrong,,, and,,,, and,,,,, and,,,, Life is so ephemeral - we are barely here and then the light switch goes off Be well......

    sorry to hear that, mcgoo....

    by jay2517

    it will be ok, buddy.

  • Aug. 25, 2012, 11:06 p.m. CST

    @Amigos and angry kitty

    by MrLongbaugh

    Thanks for your kind words. The next day I fopund out a friend of 25 years had passed away. He went outside to cut a watermelon. He came back inside and told his family he wasn't feeling well. He sat on the couch. About 25 minutes later, he was unresponsive. They called the ambulance and rushed him to the hospital. He died of a massive stroke. He was 45 years old with 4 kids. I am just blown away by these types of things. That is why I try to take life one day at a time, be the best person I can be, and treat others with the same respect that I want. You guys are great!! P.S.@ judge briggs - You don't know Jay and I personally don't feel that he has said or done anything to you to warrant you coming on here and making crude comments about his personal life. Herc knows how Jay rolls and his dislike for Maher. He doesn't make personal attacks on Herc. He calls him a Hack and has for some time. I am sure Herc is a big boy and isn't bothered by it.

    Hey Amigos I just got back from an awesome LOST party.

    by Paul

    A couple of LOST fans got together a whole bunch of stuff from LOST,Fringe, and other shows and started an organization call Cancergets LOST and are currently are having an auction with all of the signed stuff and all proceeds go towards fighting Cancer. Tonight they had a fan party to raise more mney for it. The actors who played Randy Nations (Hurley's boss), Neil Frogurt and Nadia were there and I had the chance to talk with them all. Supprisingly the guy who plays Randy is actually a really nice guy, he talked about how bad he felt picking on Hurley, but not Locke sincehe knew that Terry O Quinn could have easily given it back. It was a fun night.
