    Harry Kalas has passed away 4-13-2009

    I just want to say, Harry Kalas was loved by us here in Houston for the years he was announcing the Colt 45's and Astros with Gene Elston and Lowell Passe. He will be missed.

    American Idol - Season 8

    Dog gone it, I was really surprised that Sarver got picked, I was pulling for Ricky or Anoop to slip in there. Danny and Alexis had inspiring performances Tuesday night, so I can understand their getting picked. As for Tatiana, she is truly gifted with a very good voice and she should not give...

    Tribute to Brunettes

    I thought I was the only one who didn't feel it either. Are we missing something or is she missing teeth??? I've seen better at The Mall Of America.

    Scrubs - Season 8

    This is so weird, there was a scene in one of the past couple of episodes( ABC's?) where I saw the Indian guy(is his character's name Ed?) reminded me so much of the young intern JD when he first came to Sacred Heart.

    Friday Night Lights - Season 3 (NBC) - No DirecTV Spoilers!

    I didn't see any recent posts here for FNL,so I thought I'd give this thread a bump. Enjoyed seeing more football scenes and Smash's storyline,thumbs up on Coach Taylor and Smash's acting!!! It wouldn't bother me a bit if the Lyla/Riggins thing just stopped,I don't see it going anywhere good and...

    American Idol - Season 8

    I like to record these shows and fast forward through all the junk and boy, last night it didn't take me long to watch an hour's worth of AI in about 5 minutes. I'm ready for them to get to Hollywood and cut to the chase.

    The Office season 5

    I have to agree, this last episode was a let down,I felt they could have done so much more with the road trip to Prince Paper and the Hillary Swank thing was just ridiculous,what a waste of half an episode. I thought maybe there would be some time spent on the Andy, Angela and Dwight snafu...

    Anyone get those annoying mortgage calls?..

    Get this. Some jerk called my CELL PHONE last week and left one of these stupid mortgage ads message. When I googled the number,it's to someone up in Indiana,and when you call the number, there's a recording that says it's no longer a working number.Go figure???

    Can anyone identify this tree?

    If you had a close shot of the flower,leaf, or bark,I could positively i.d. it. My best guess at this time is that it's possibly a redbud or even a crepemyrtle.

    The Last Templar miniseries on NBC

    After seeing the commercials the last 2 or 3 weeks,I was looking forward to seeing this. Needless to say, after watching the first 10 minutes, I was disappointed at how cheesy this show was going to be. Yep, Todd S. had it right about that opening scene, after the first cop got killed,there...

    Pushing Daisies - Season 2

    I sure hope ABC doesn't cancel this show, I find "Pushing Daisies" to be one of the most entertaining,innovative,endearing and visually appealing shows available on air or cable. It's hard to believe that the viewership has dropped off that much from last season to make the network just toss...

    The Office season 5

    I have to agree with you sdranger619, I had alot of LOL moments,and some of them were just from some of the looks from the characters without saying any lines. Loved the BSG part, and man,I knew when Holly mentioned something about the office coworkers not being like family to Micheal at...

    The Office season 5

    Lol,poor Kevin and his math. Another reason Holly probably continued to think Kevin was mentally challenged. Who was it that started this yarn about Kevin being challenged? For some reason I have a feeling Stanley has something to do with it.

    2008 Emmy Awards

    My favorite part of the show was Don Rickles,the guy still has it. I thought Josh Grobin did a pretty good job at what he was given,and it looked like he was enjoying himself. Can someone please tell me why these Hollywood elites continue to use these awards shows to voice their political views...

    Tim Russert died

    Ok, I'm putting on my flame retardant suit because I know I'm going to be catching some flames. I was never a big Tim Russert fan and it seems like the media is covering his passing as if it was the Pope who died. For the past number of days it seems like everytime I turned on the tv there was...

    Saturday Night Live - Season 33

    For some reason I want to say Phyllis Diller was somewhere in that mix,but I may be thinking of Hollywood Squares.

    My electric bill is way high..... why?

    Thanks for the info guys, checked out a couple of sites like powertochoose which showed various charges and plans, of course there's zero info on customer service or how happy their customers really are. with the cost of natural gas going up,looks like the electric bill will too. Jason L. ,lol...

    My electric bill is way high..... why?

    Thought I'd ask for opinions on what electricity provider to go with in Houston. I bought a used 1800 sq.ft house.Reliant is the giant of course, TXU is well known too. Spark is another one I've been hearing about and was approached recently about Ignite. What I want to get is real feedback from...

    Scrubs - Season 7

    Yes, this episode reminded me of the early years of Scrubs,found myself LOL numerous times,Ted was killing me!!! I'm glad I record this because there's things going on in the background that you can miss because you're laughing at what's going on in the foreground. It's nice to rewind and watch...

    Robert,thanks for your wonderful,thoughtful post on Richard Widmark's passing, he was truly a film legend and always a professional.

    Kind of a personal question - Have any of you tried online dating services?

    I've tried the online dating sites off and on for about 4 years now .Depending on where you live, if you're in an area that is well populated,you are going to have alot better luck on the sites as those who live out in the sticks. It's very competitive out there for us guys over 50.The thing is...
