    Lost Season 1 ongoing thread (merged)

    I just followed TravisR's instructions and it worked for me. The text you have to click on doesn't behave like a regular hyperlink. Your cursor might still look like a text cursor instead of the hand. If you click it, it will open. ;)

    The 4400 Season 2

    You're probably thinking of Jordan. Richard is the pilot taken in 1951, married to Lily, the (probable) father of Isabel, went to the funeral, etc.

    'Firefly' added to Sci-Fi

    Yes, there is a correct running order. And it's the order found on the DVD set. SciFi is supposed to be following that order. Yeah, but you can't put the widescreen back in. Get the DVDs. They're pretty cheap (

    Lost Season 1 ongoing thread (merged)

    I think the complaint is more prevalent with Lost simply because it's a different kind of format. Usually, even with shows that have a season-long arc, there's some kind of weekly payoff and resolution. Every episode of Lost always ends on a cliff hanger. And whatever resolution you get always...

    The 4400 Season 2

    First of all, we don't know that these are benevolent beings. Just future beings trying to improve their time by altering the past. They possess superior technology that enables them to not only time travel but improve upon man's evolution. Or...what if they aren't altering their past? What...

    Good Eats - Food network

    Yep, the science and the use of multitasking tools is what makes the show great and stand out from the rest. There are a bunch of other recipe type cooking shows. If that's what you want then watch those. Alton makes cooking fun and interesting. Who knew my workbench has some cooking utensils...

    Stargate Sg-1 and Atlantis newb question

    I watched all of Atlantis season 1 without ever seeing a single episode of SG-1. It works just fine on its own. Yeah, the finale has an SG-1 (season 8) spoiler in it (as I'm told) but I can live with that. And now I'm going back and watching SG-1 from the beginning. I've finished season 1 and...

    Why isn't SciFi broadcasting it letterboxed as it should be?

    30 Days (Morgan Spurlock's new show) - Let's Discuss

    Yep. And when the mother finally did try to confront the daughter towards the very end of the experiment the daughter just shut her down and walked away to go talk on her cell phone. All the mother was doing during the "confrontation" was showing concern and wasn't even getting in her face about...

    30 Days (Morgan Spurlock's new show) - Let's Discuss

    Binge Drinking A pretty good episode. I was wondering how the mother was going to try to convince her daughter of the dangers of binge drinking by doing it herself, so I'm not too surprised it had little to no effect. It's good that it did open up a dialog between them though (probably for...

    Stargate SG-1 New season

    She did say something to that effect right after she stepped out of the Stargate. Something like, "We haven't met. You I'd remember." Personally, I think these little nods just seemed forced. Except the pregnant one, that was kind of funny.

    That and the solar panels are produced in a polluting factory and delivered by a polluting, fossel fuel guzzling vehicle. The tools they use, the cars they drive, the materials in their buildings (except the mud and straw) were also mass produced in polluting factories and transported as all...

    30 Days (Morgan Spurlock's new show) - Let's Discuss

    Off the grid I've only had a chance to watch about half of it so far, but the half I've seen is so full of bull crap (literally) that I'm thinking this episode is the worst one so far. For example, they first make an argument for the use of cow manure ("poop power") as a viable, renewable...

    30 Days (Morgan Spurlock's new show) - Let's Discuss

    Well, I couldn't see where much doctoring of the outcome could have gone on in the Muslim episode. Other than the street interviews of course. I mean, those could have really represented 2% of all interviews but those where the only ones chosen to air because it helped to make the point they...

    Lost Season 1 ongoing thread (merged)

    Charlie did manage to get out of the bathroom and buckle himself into a seat though. He wasn't in the bathroom the whole time. And from the looks of how far the seat was from the bathroom, he must have been right behind where the nose broke off from the midsection. (The bathroom he was in was...

    30 Days (Morgan Spurlock's new show) - Let's Discuss

    More specifically, he was taking crazy doses of controversial suppliments: 20 pills a day, steroids, and HGH. So far in these past two shows they've had some worst case scenarios actually happen. I don't know if it's rotten luck or planned that way. In the minimum wage show they had to...

    CSI: Season 5 thread

    It didn't do a whole lot to further the plot, no. But it did make the story of each character better. It makes them feel more human, a little more real, to not only help us care more about each of them but to also add drama (and a little light comedy) to the situation. It's character driven...

    All the "extreneous" stuff was the meat of the show. Great episode.

    Grey's Anatomy ongoing thread

    I totally agree. ABC used to be a "fly-over" channel for me as I'd channel surf. Now half of the shows I watch are on ABC. I'm sick of unscripted shows (except Survivor and The Amazing Race of course) and I'm really liking what ABC has been offering. On a side note, has anybody been...

    Smallville Season 4 thread

    Hmmm... I wasn't really into this episode. It just seemed off. Either the writing or directing or something. Tom Welling did a good job though. He actually looked different as "amnesiac Clark." But the whole episode just didn't have the usual Smallville vibe to it.

    makeshift transducer

    Without moving some mass it's not going to create any vibrations. Here's a really old thread where I give assembly instructions on making your own TT. It's crude, but fun. These driver-based TTs take up a lot more room than something like an Aura bass shaker though. So that's something else...

    Inspiration of Babylon 5

    I did the same thing just recently. JMS is brilliant. I loved it. A friend of mine pointed me to the Lurker's Guide to Babylon 5 where you can read about each episode in detail. Also, be sure not to skip past the "jms speaks" section of each episode. That is where you can read all about JMS's...

    Survivor Palau: Season 10

    I suspect that Coby is just using the "because I'm a threat" line to soften the blow against his ego. I mean, he just got booted from his first team. I guess we'll find out at the final TC and see whether or not his statement/question has any venom in it.

    The Office (US) - Season 1

    After watching Ep. 1 of this season I immediately put the BBC edition DVDs on my Netflix queue. I just finished both seasons and the special and I fell in love with it. Excellent writing and the characters are believable and real enough that by the end I was really feeling for them. But I...

    Arrested Development Season 2 thread

    Just before the opening credits they had a "Viewer discretion is advised" notice. Hmmm... a request to act or judge for ourselves? Kind of a "this show is better than anything else on TV, but we'll let you be the judge"? Tobias: "Show us your bananas and nuts!" :D

    Eyes - ongoing thread

    I somehow missed the article in Entertainment Weekly, but I saw a review for it in the newspaper the other day. It sounds interesting so I've programmed it into the DVR. It seems like it might be a bit like Moonlighting but with gadgets.

    The Office (US) - Season 1

    And I found last night's episode absolutely hilarious. Not quite up to the high bar Arrested Development has set, but much better than the first episode and way better than most other comedies right now. I haven't seen the BBC version yet, so I can't make any comparison. The DVDs should be...
