    42' - 47' LCD (Under $1000) - Advice Needed

    My new question, upon looking over the various Samsungs (thank you for those suggestions virp), is in regards to 120 Hz. Is it as necessary a technology as one may be led to believe? Or, rather; in a real-world setting, is it something that I should have, given the amount of watching I will...

    42' - 47' LCD (Under $1000) - Advice Needed

    Upon some research, I quickly realized that it was going to be tough to do, based upon the price point. So, I've expanded my pricing to $1500. I also am open to a 40' Samsung, as what I've seen thus far, in regards to the Samsung, has been quite nice. Thank you for the reply, and I look...

    42' - 47' LCD (Under $1000) - Advice Needed

    I have decided that now is the time. Time for me to upgrade from my current 27' Sony CRT to an LCD. So, I thought I'd come here first, and see what advice could be given to me. I am looking for either a 42' or a 47', and am looking to spend somewhere in the realm of $1000 or less. I'm looking...

    ER season 11 thread

    I'll have to agree. Although, should he become CR, it could make for some interesting stories. I mean, having a chief resident whom no one respects, and is a failure at the job could prove for a rather compelling dynamic...

    Weekly RoundUp 4/26/2005

    After having quit my job two weeks ago, money is a little tight... However, there is no force on this Earth that will keep me from getting TMNT: Season Two. I've been awaiting this one for months.

    Stacked (Fox) - cast changes already?

    As far as I am aware, Najimy was never a part of the show. She was never shown in the previews that I have seen, nor has she been mentioned anywhere as being part of the cast. You're probably just mixing her up with Marissa Jaret Winokur, another actress who looks similar at a glance, and is...

    Thank you, as usual. Lone Gunmen Apollo 13 I will more than likely pick up Hook and The Truman Show at Best Buy, not only to bask in the glow of the 2 for $15 deal, but to also get my hands on a copy of the Sin City DVD...

    Thanks. A lot of fun. Having some trouble with: Dumb and Dumber vs. Shaun of the Dead Ferris Bueller vs. Raising Arizona A few others, but those are some of my hardest.

    Committed ongoing thread

    I too actually hope for renewal. It is one of the few shows left that I will actually take the time to watch consistantly. While not the greatest show by any means, it is a solid half-hour, and one that I would like to see come back. "From the mouths of clowns..."

    (Once again, an invaluable resource...) Friends: Season Nine Ladder 49 (blind buy) The Ring: Collectors Set (I'm unsure on this one - I already own the original release. Any reviews on this one yet?) (And I've changed my bookmarks as well. I was unaware of that as well.)

    Weekly RoundUp 3/1/05

    Mike, once again, thank you for the RoundUp. Quite the useful resource... For the second week in a row, nothing for me. Probably for the best, considering the amount of purchasing I'll be doing in the upcoming weeks.

    Weekly RoundUp 2/22/05

    Thanks for the RoundUp Mike. As always, good stuff. Nothing for me this week. Maybe Heat, but seeing as how I've never seen it, I'll probably skip it this time around. This will be the first week nothing came out that I wanted to buy. I quite like the feeling...

    Angel: Season Five Donnie Darko: DC Half Baked Oh, and I'd love to be able to buy Angel: Season Five, and get $10 off both Seasons Three and Four (which I have yet to get). (Thanks for the RoundUp, as usual. Always a great reference tool for me.)

    Joey ongoing thread

    A less-than-stellar episode, 'though still good. The best part was when Michael went over to the lonely heart's club of women, and said he was only over there because his uncle had sent him over. "Ooh, is he coming over?" "No, it's only me I'm all you get!"

    Weekly RoundUp 2/1/05

    Thanks again, as usual. Great post, and one that I always rely on... Anyways, a lighter-than-average week for me (thankfully). After last week (Predator 2, Sky Captain, Mean Creek, Superman: S1, Batman: V2, MacGyver: S1 - plus various other discs), I'm glad to have a slow one. This week...

    Monk Season 3.5 (now with Natalie, no mo' Sharona) ongoing thread

    The candle wax was a really bad miss. My mom picked it up, and she hardly pays attention to the TV. And I too thought Adrian was going to start panicking ('though, I knew something was going to happen when he brought out his weapon - the candle), but was pleasantly surprised when he began to...

    I really must echo the sentiments of everyone earlier... The new layout is simply great. Very nice job. For me: Cellular Farscape: Peacekeeper Wars Farscape: Starburst Volume 2 Aladdin 2-pack Friday Night Lights (maybe - worth a blind buy?)

    SNL 1-15-2005 Topher Grace

    The monologue wasn't bad, but the entire episode as a whole was. Hardball was decent, only for the fact that Forte does a funny Miller bit.

    Simpson lip sync on SNL

    The people didn't pay to see the entertainment provided by the singers, they paid to see the football game. How about the next time someone goes to see your daughter/sister/brother, etc in a school performance, they get up and begin "booing" if they didn't like it? Most people are simply...

    Simpson lip sync on SNL

    Yes, her performance was bad. However, I'm certain a lot of that can be attributed to the horrid sound system that was used. Kelly Clarkson's mic didn't even work at first, and then, when she received a second mic, the volume was hardly audible. Her backup singers were clearer and sounded better...

    *** Official OCEAN'S TWELVE Discussion Thread

    Am I the only one who thought that the real reason the sequel didn't work as much was because they focused too much on Zeta-Jones's character? It detracted quite a bit away from the crew and made it feel less "fun." I don't know. Just not as good as the first...

    Scrubs (season 4) ongoing thread

    Ah, tonight's Scrubs - what can I say? I've been a bit disappointed with the last few rounds of Scrubs (get it - rounds... like a doctor mak - fine, I won't give up my day job), tonight's episode gave me renewed faith. Very hilarious...
