    Lie To Me - season 1

    Last night I watched the interview that Paul Ekman - Cal Lightman's alter ego - gave five years ago. It was very enlightening about the path he took to his study of facial expressions. It is no surprise that he has advanced degrees in psychology. One thing surprised me when late in the interview...

    Lie To Me - season 1

    The writers can go in several directions with Gillian. They may play it that she is in denial and is using an ego defense mechanism to not confront the fact. It could develop that her subconscious is aware of the lies and that is the reason for the grips on the arm and back. It would be...

    Lie To Me - season 1

    Let me give this show the kiss of death. I like it. I also liked MY OWN WORST ENEMY, and I did in that show after its thirteen episode run. Tim Roth nails the part of Cal. He needs to be a good actor because his appearance makes Dustin Hoffman look like Troy Donahue. I have to listen...

    *** Official TAKEN Discussion Thread

    Well, not much discussion here. This flick had the most gratuitous violence than I have seen in awhile. Action fans should like it, but here-in lies the problem for me. The Liam Neeson character Bryan Mills is likely ex CIA, but his skill set argues that he had extensive training with Delta...

    My Own Worst Enemy - season 1

    I had the same thought about Henry being with Edward being the spin off. Actually they could both be a split from an original character that was imperfect with the traits of Henry and Edward split to perform different functions. Henry was left in Edwards apartment and "discovered" his alter ego...

    2008 NCAA College Football Thread

    Hate when it does that! TCU has to knock off Utah and Boise State win out to get a trip to the Orange Bowl. A long trip, but I have relatives in Ft. Lauderdale. The offensive line is a fire drill, but the defense is holding opponents under 10 pts a game outside of 32 to Oregon.

    BYU gets rolled by TCU so one more down ahead of Boise State - who I watched handle Hawaii easily tonight 27-7. TCU

    My Own Worst Enemy - season 1

    I don’t catch many TV series anymore, but the trailers for this were interesting so I recorded and have watched it twice through. Reverse and pause in HD is helpful to an understanding of the characters. Gratuitous sex and violence in the opening credits – who could ask for more! First; the...

    Meanwhile, further back in the pack, Boise State dispatched Southern Miss 24-7. We could rise to 8-9 and still not get a BCS bowl bid if BYU gets past Utah.

    *** Official CHARLIE WILSON'S WAR Discussion Thread

    After leaving the film I drove to the book store and bought the book. I have just finished it and now can post. The movie is a quaint rendition of the life of one of the most colorful and powerful members of the House of Representatives – not only of his era, but of all time. Seymour...

    NCAA College Football 2007

    If I hadn't gone to the Fiesta Bowl and to the Washington game I would have considered going to Hawaii for the greatest game in WAC history. If Boise State wins and doesn't get a BCS bid it will be disapointing, but not the end of the world. If the Broncos win I'll have to track down Dennis...

    A Mighty Heart

    My wife had read the book so she took me to the movie this week. In the aftermath of 911, there was concern that the Pakistanis might not be as motivated to pursue terrorists as was the U.S. Here is a story of a Pakistani police captain (Irfan Kahn) who is dogged in his investigation of a...

    The 'DIE HARD' appreciation thread.

    I have a question also: When Gruber goes upstairs by himself later in the movie and is confronted by McClane, does John recognize him right away and just pretend that he doesn't? Seems to me that McClane would recognize that very distinctive voice right away. This would seem to be the case since...

    The 'DIE HARD' appreciation thread.

    Dwayne: We're gonna need some more FBI guys. The DVD with special features provides a lot of great background information. I always loved the Nakatomi board room with the stone walls and the reception desk in the lobby. Great Japanese theme.
