    John from Cincinnati - Season 1

    As I said in my first post in this thread there will not be a season two of this "show". What a waste of talent (except for the kid and the surfer chick who should stick with surfing and leave acting to others). Personally I'd rather have had Season 4 of Deadwood instead of a chance to see...

    John from Cincinnati - Season 1

    I watched again last night. John has to be the most annoying main character in a show that I can recall ever seeing. The other main characters do not seem to very appealing or interesting to me at all. Some of the other minor characters show promise (the Vietnam vet, the retired Cop, the hotel...

    John from Cincinnati - Season 1

    They canceled Deadwood for that? I think the "Season One" in the thread title is superfluous.

    The Sopranos Season 6, Part II - April 2007

    Exactly! that's why its such a great ending. Sure I, along with everyone else, was expecting a Big Ending (and I think Chase structured it that way on purpose) but whackings and resolution has never been what this show is about. When the screen went black I thought my cable had gone out... I...

    The Colbert Report

    My understanding is that Colbert meets with the guest prior to the show and explains that "Stephen Colbert of the Colbert Report" is a character he plays and that he is not being serious and that the show is airing on the Comedy Channel. Obviously some of them get it and some of them just...

    Montoya to NASCAR!!!

    I don't know about Montoys going back to F1. I've always liked him and been impressed with his driving skills, but he's earned a reputation for making mistakes which is why he had so few options for next season. There are so many talented young drivers lining up for a F1 seat that it is hard to...

    Montoya to NASCAR!!!

    I think he has the potential to be quite successful in NASCAR, but it is so different from what he is used to he could easily be a complete disaster. If he does adapt, it will be a very smart move as he could be in NASCAR for another 10+ years. Even if he had lived up to expectations in F1 he...

    Montoya to NASCAR!!!

    No this is not a joke. Formula One driver Juan Pablo Montoya will drive for Chip Ganassi in Nextel Cup next year!!! SpeedTV news story If its true that he turned down a seat at Williams, they must be offering him a TON of money. JPM is very skilled and maybe his driving style will suit...

    Deadwood: Season Three

    My favorite scene from this episode was Jane teaching the kids though. It was amazing to hear her say more than three words in a row without swearing.

    Deadwood: Cancelled (?)

    I'm not sure how you get "won't ever watch another series he creates" out of "...not be willing to give "The Show They Canceled Deadwood For" much of a chance." So no, you didn't get it right.

    Deadwood: Cancelled (?)

    It certainly does sound as if Milch wanted to move on to this new show before Deadwood had completed its run, pushed by the HBO bean counters due to the cost of the show and the lack of product placement opportunities (see Sopranos, the). I am sure I'm not he only Deadwood fan who will not be...

    Deadwood: Season Three

    Another great exchange was Trixie explaining to Sol what the whole Adams house thing was about. hilarious. As was her previous conversation with Al... "loopy c___".

    Meyer's Dark Rum and....??

    I like dark & stromys too, usually I only drink them in Bermuda where the ingredients are easy to find. Gosling's Black Seal Rum (Their slogan is "Unavailable Almost Everywhere" but I can often find it in my local liquor store, so its not that unavailable.) and Barrits Bermuda Ginger Beer...

    Auto racing weekend

    They're on site for the USGP, and I've heard stories about people running into them around town over that weekend. Hobbs must have a hard time with people lining up to buy him drinks... The HD rumors don't make much sense to me either, but the story was that FOM wanted to try it out (maybe...
