    Dollhouse - season 2

    So that's why when I watched this episode, I felt like I'd missed one. Totally lost me. I'll have to watch that tomorrow, and then the finale again. Amazing just how good this show got once they new they had a finite end, and could plot accordingly. The first season, "Echo character of the...

    Freaks and Geeks Yearbook Edition

    Is this worth getting instead of the regular box set? I mean, besides the unique packaging, are the extras enough to make it a must-have?

    Iron Man (2008)

    I was really impressed with the quality of the CGI. There was only one short instance where it looked fake, I think in one of the shots of him flying by the ferris wheel. The rest it was spot on, almost like they'd built little robot models and filmed them. It really kept me in the movie, as it...

    help connecting two VCRs

    sorry, I haven't bothered to check out this thread since resolving the problem. I had it wired up properly, I just had a brain cramp and had forgotten that to receive a line-in signal from something other than the main source selected, I needed to switch the receiver's source input to...

    Alias Smith and Jones

    I've watched the episodes on the western channel over the past couple of years, remembering that i loved this show as a kid. To me, Pete Duel will always be Heyes, as the show seemed to lose a bit when Roger Davis took over the role. a bit unfair to him perhaps, as someone mentioned above, he...

    Sleeper Cell Season 2

    so, if and when there's a next season, are we gonna see a Fugitive-type scenario with Darwin chasing Fariq(Farad?) across the entire Middle East?

    Sleeper Cell Season 2

    you're assuming that Darwin is dead? i'm not so sure that that is a certainty.

    THE WIRE season 4 (see post #1 re: SPOILERS)

    i thought Marlo did see Bodie get into the car with McNulty, when he went down to booking with the lawyer to get Chris and Snoop out. the guy he was talking to afterward was just a sounding board about whether it was something he should be concerned about or not, and he decided that he couldn't...

    THE WIRE season 4 (see post #1 re: SPOILERS)

    i've gotta say, for some reason, this season didn't really grab me at first. i loved the police stuff, the Carchetti stuff, and the stuff on the streets, but whenever we got to the stuff at school, it just lost me. i don't know why, but for whatever reason, i just couldn't come to know and...

    HTF's Best Albums List

    these are all albums I like, I believe they are all rewarding listens. whether they are important in the development of the genre is a subjective opinion. first, i'll start with my list of ten favorite all-time that i submitted earlier this summer to a radio station contest. bear in mind...

    help with connections

    well, i took one of the S-video cables over to my parents' house, and connected their dvd player to the TV with it. got a friend who might be able to use the other one. luckily, they didn't cost me much. as for me, i'll just stick with RCA until i can afford to buy the Anthem pre-pro. ;)

    help with connections

    ok, one other question. while in the process of re-doing these connections, I also decided to upgrade my cables that needed it, although I didn't want to spend a whole lot of money. So after checking this site to see if AR cables were still well thought of, I ordered some from...

    problem solved. user error. or at least user incompetence.

    help with connections

    thank you. I just figured this out today, before I came to check on this post. I figured that if I was choosing VCR2 as the "source", and it was set to line-level, it was just seeing nothing, and then sending that nothing out, and then back in. source and destination were the exact same...

    help connecting two VCRs

    cross-posted from the "basics" forum. i'm not completely new to stereo and wiring stuff up, but i've only had my multi-channel receiver a few years, and have yet to take full advantage of it, since i only have a single pair of speakers. but yesterday, I decided i'd at least connect my...

    Nip/Tuck Season 4 ongoing thread

    i think the daughter's cutting off her dolls' fingers was actually a well-intended move on her part that both her parents over-reacted to, and she never got a chance to explain herself as to why she did it. i think her intention was that her little brother would, as he grew up, see her dolls...

    Crime Story worth picking up?

    Deep Discount DVD has this included as part of their "buy one set, get another free" deal. i've read a couple of past threads dealing ith the music replacement, picture quality, etc. is there anything about this set worth replacing my taped episodes for?

    Bands you discovered/liked before they made it big?

    U2-right away, when Boy came out. although October was the first of theirs that i actually owned. REM-when Murmur was released. saw them the first time later that fall. George Thorogood-his first three albums are outstanding, and then he did that I Drink Alone song that made him huge...

    good. i read somewhere, maybe in TV guide, that the mole had been revealed. guess they were talking about the entire two-parter, not just that episode.

    i missed much of this too, playing on the computer while watching. who turned out to be the mole in the lab?

    SOPRANOS Season 6: Season Finally!!!.. Episode 12: "KAISHA"

    for the same reason Vito went hightailing it back to Jersey in this episode. these guys just aren't cut out to make it in the 9-5 world. they don't want to put in the effort and sacrifice it takes to make it successfully in a legit business. the frustration of not having money to spend on...

    LOST season 2 discussion thread......

    yeah, i loved the huge grin on Jin's face. and i figure that it was more than just the character, that the actors got a real kick out of watching Jorge and Josh tumble around.

    Prison Break ongoing thread

    and i never made the connection between the two characters until i looked Knepper up on IMDB. i knew i'd heard the name before, but Tommy Dolan is about as opposite of T-bag as you can get. hard to believe it was the same guy playing him.
