It doesn't do anything. Its bad television. The writing is so bad and the lines are so cliche and on the nose that I do wonder if its just an all out parody at this point. In any event, there's no...

So the Court (Scalia) said they are required to consider costs and cherry picked some quotes during briefings or oral arguments where the EPA said they did not consider costs at a certain stage in...

Yeah pretty dumb. The scene was kinda cool in an otherwise stupid, boring hour of television, but him living through it will cheapen it to the point of sheer stupidity. I mean birdman shot him point...

The SC decision striking the EPA rules is pretty surprising. A very poorly reasoned opinion, in my view.

What a conversation, the standout for me was something about not being able to fly fish if you don't know flies.

Well it is arguably referenced as such a few times. However, these referenced should be taken in historical and linguistic context. For a well researched discussion of the scriptural passages in the...

Yeah I don't know why I put it off for so long. The unflinching take on death in every episode makes for some great television. It does have a few so-so episodes and story lines each season but when...

I've been thinking about watching it. I was never a huge PSU fan but I grew up in north central PA so everyone else was. I spent a lot of time in Happy Valley but I was in Pitt during the scandal....

Mostly unrelated, but have you seen Six Feet Under? I just started season 4. If you've seen it, I'd like to know your general thoughts.

Hmm, maybe I'm just comparing too closely to the ones I've followed then (The Wire, The Sopranos, Deadwood, and Six Feet Under) which all have 12-13 per season. I just figured since those were pretty...

10 + hours per book is plenty. Compare that to movie adaptations of books. It takes good writing to adapt across mediums but the story is there. I also never understood why its 10 episodes and not 12...

So the long awaited Battle at Winterfell turned out to be worth none of the anticipation. Everything else was rather expected. Not a very good finale and a pretty bad season overall.

Malick is fantastic. You should definitely check out his stuff. Everything he's done is great.

Right, let's just say when you change the source material to fit your vision you're doing a Malick or Kubrick adaptation and move on.

"Like how" you both missed the reasonable part. It wasn't a long sentence.
Diminishing those two names to good adaptations is even more of an insult, so no I didn't stop reading. There's no...

That is not reasonable to think at all. Weiss and Benoiff are in no way comparable to Malick and Kubrick.

I did some quick research on this because it sounds way off and it looks like section 250.512(d) of the Landlord Tenant Act expressly disallows waiving the recovery of the deposit without going...
