    CSI: Crime Scene Investigation Season 9 (mild early season spoilers)

    That means about halfway through this episode the story will completely go off the rails and lose direction.

    BOOK REVIEW -- "RECLAIMING HISTORY: THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY"

    Interesting. The two-hour Kennedy Assassination special on the History Channel tonight was just the Peter Jennings ABC special for 2003, but without Peter Jennings' narration. It's nice that the channel has taken some steps to correct the damage done by their interminable airings of The Men Who...

    Bones, season 4

    Emily is four years older. I don't really know her sister so I'll take your word for it. Their mother, by the way, played Lara Flynn Boyle's mother in Twin Peaks.

    BOOK REVIEW -- "RECLAIMING HISTORY: THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY"

    You know... if we were really sick, we could probably come up with a JFK Conspiracy board game, sort of like Clue but with all the locations in Dealy Plaza (with side trips to New Orleans, Miami, Mexico City and Havana). Whoever uncovers together the largest conspiracy wins. We'll be rich, I...

    BOOK REVIEW -- "RECLAIMING HISTORY: THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY"

    I'm beginning to believe that JFK was killed by Colonel Mustard in the library with the candlestick.

    BOOK REVIEW -- "RECLAIMING HISTORY: THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY"

    Good point. They also represented Congress, not a cable channel. That probably gave them a little more leeway when it came to firing live ammo. I don't think it could have been blanks because part of the report of a rifle is the mini sonic boom generated by the bullet actually breaking the...

    BOOK REVIEW -- "RECLAIMING HISTORY: THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY"

    But even if you use identical 6.5mm Carcanos, you're left with the problem that bullets from one rifle will not match bullets from the other, again exposing the presence of a second shooter. And that's assuming the wound tracks would not have pointed in two different directions. Again, the...

    BOOK REVIEW -- "RECLAIMING HISTORY: THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY"

    David, Excellent review! After watching the show a couple times, I realized that they had to reposition the limo for each sight test meaning that Dealey Plaza was only being closed for a short time for each test and then reopened. I think that asking the city of Dallas to close off the plaza...

    BOOK REVIEW -- "RECLAIMING HISTORY: THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY"

    David, I'd be very interested in hearing your opinion of "Inside the Target Car" Please tell me you're going to post one of your insanely detailed reviews somewhere. The Discovery site doesn't say anything about a DVD of this show. I hope they release one.

    BOOK REVIEW -- "RECLAIMING HISTORY: THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY"

    That's not new. It's been available on DVD for since Jan, but I'm glad they're showing it again, especially now that I have PBS in HD.

    BOOK REVIEW -- "RECLAIMING HISTORY: THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY"

    You'll never convince the conspiracy theorists, but hopefully people will be less vulnerable to their crackpot ideas because of specials like this.

    BOOK REVIEW -- "RECLAIMING HISTORY: THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY"

    I was very impressed with the Discovery special. They effectively drove the last nail into the coffin of the Grassy Knoll Shooter theory (would have produced wounds totally inconsistent with Kennedy's wounds and would most likely have killed Jackie). I could tell that Jackie would have been hurt...

    Your 1st DVD player vs. 1st Blu-ray player: How much and when did you buy?

    I bought a Sony Player (forgot which model) in 1999 for about $300 (Actually it cost me nothing because I bought with Best Buy gift cards earned as a bonus from work). That would be about $390 in today's dollars. My first BD players will probably be the S550 which will be no more than $399...

    Please recommend a Blu Ray that can pass DTS HD via analogue outs

    You mean the lossless codecs right? (DTS-MA/TrueHD) Both the Panny BD55 and the Sony S550 will do it for about $400.

    DVDSpot Users - what will you do now?

    Fortunately I was OCD enough to use DVDSpot, DVDAF and Profiler simultaneously, so I can still keep using the survivors... I'm still bummed, because DVD Spot was so easy to use and well designed.

    NFL 2008 Regular Season Discussion Thread

    The last time Davis won a Super Bowl: Reagan was President Iran and Iraq were at war. Macintosh computers were not yet for sale. Dell Computers did not exist. Microsoft Word had just been released. In other words, what has he done for us lately?

    A Blu-ray player [Sony BDP-S550] that will do EVERYTHING! (Verified)

    I was wrong. Netgear makes one. It's not cheap but not outrageous.

    A Blu-ray player [Sony BDP-S550] that will do EVERYTHING! (Verified)

    There are dedicated wireless bridges and there are wireless access points that can be used in "bridge mode." The problem is that dedicated bridges seem hard to find and tend to be expensive (I've never even seen an N bridge). On the other hand, the Linksys routers/access points with bridge...

    However, people appear to be actually watching Fringe, but not SCC. You expect Fox to axe the higher rated show?

    Can't tell you. That night club scene in the opener overloaded my fine meter. Pegged the needle, really.
