    Right. I've watched ESPN3 numerous times. I have cable tv. They ask you the provider, then you have to sign in with your cable provider account information which includes a password and usually your email address that you've given them.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

Then, when we did finally get to the point of watching shows, it would be about 15 seconds of the show, 5 seconds of black screen, 20 seconds of show, 5 seconds of black screen, 10 seconds of show, 5 seconds of black screen, and so on. It had gotten progressively worse the last month or so.

    Trying out Hulu Live instead. Maybe we'll like that service better.
    This was my issue with Sling as well. I feel like it worked well when we first started using it, but about a month in it would take forever or would just not load things altogether.
    I'm not sure what the answer is for cutting the cord. Currently we have cable, Hulu (free with our cellphone plan), Netflix, and Prime. The only real reason we're keeping cable is for NHL network. It is our default channel (when you turn off the tv, you return it to NHL Network so that whoever powers on the TV next isn't subject to other ***** on a network that the last person watched -- too many times of turning on the TV to Bravo after Top Chef aired and getting some sort of Real Housewives horribleness). I'm also not sure that unbundling our services through Comcast ends up saving us that much money

    That's my issue. There are some shows that I could get if I got Hulu, YouTube, etc, but then I'm paying just as much as I would as if I had cable. I'm prob just gonna stick with Netflix (disc and stream) and if it's a show I REALLLLLLLY want to watch that's not on there (currently Saul and Mayans) I'll just get the season pass from Amazon Prime for $15/per.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Finished up The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann over the weekend. Pretty informative, and went into more detail than I knew about the case, even though it was one that I have followed for a while now. Like most documentaries of this kind, it is extremely frustrating to watch at times, but still brings up many issues that people should be aware of. I recommend it if you're interested in this kind of thing.

    Also recently finished the most recent season of Man in the High Castle. Really impressed with how this show has progressed. I found the first season extremely slow, and it picked up a bit at the end. Season 2 started to get good, and not nearly as slow. Season 3 was very good.

    Going to be watching Billions as it comes out, it is one of my favorites. And want to watch season 1 of Big Little Lies, since my wife is excited for season 2 of it, and I don't want to be watching season 2 not knowing what the hell is going on. Will keep up with VEEP too, another of my favorites.

    Looking forward to the return of Deadwood and of course, GoT.
    Having a clear conscience just means you have a bad memory or you had a boring weekend.

    I hope you like BLL. Itís a little soapy but I thought the acting was superb.

    I need to get Showtime and watch Billions. Does showtime come bundled with any other service?

    I don't know about bundled, but you can get it for about $8/month as a Hulu add-on. I did that for a while until about a year ago - just wasn't watching the Showtime content that much.

    I might add that for a few months later this year. Too much going on now with summer around the corner.

    Watched John Oliverís piece on WWE, very well done piece. Whatís sad is that, despite being very powerful and truthful, thereís probably another hours worth of stuff he didnít include.

    Yes, great editorial on WWE and Vince McMahon.

    Watching his interview where heís asked about wrestler deaths and he attempts to intimidate the reporter is sickening. Makes me wish Jesse Ventura could meet him in a dark alley and bring Brett Hart along as well.

    Killing Eve

    Been seeing this advertised. Tried getting it on Demand, was not available for free so I passed. Well, they had an encore of S1E1 last night and just watched it and glad I did. One of the better premiere's of any show I've seen. It's a BBC show but they're showing it on AMC. Marathon on AMC for the entire season 1 is next Sunday. Then the season 2 premiere is on Sunday right after the marathon is over.

    A Discovery of Witches

    Also, a British show from Sky One? Never heard of that network. Anyway, next Sunday after Killing Eve they are premiering S1E1 and I plan on checking it out. Seen it advertised for a while but it was always just streaming somewhere and now that I have an opportunity I am going to check it out.

    Oh there is way more than that. Pretty much everyone hates him but if they want to make any money have to work for him. The man is scum.

    It was great. I suspect the Venn Diagram of his audience and WWE fandom is two circles touching at one point on a tangent line.

    Apparently so does Oliver.

    Gotta admit, the clips he showed were amazing. I wonder how he was able to get the rights. Is parody "fair use"?

    I've had a soft spot for wrestling ever since reading Barthes. If you ever see "Mythologies," read the whole essay -- it's hysterical.
