    I don’t know why they have to f-ck with aspect ratios.

    Supposedly they added one spoken word by Greedo but it's not subtitled and seems to be a w.t.f.?

    Before he sold the franchise Lucas was editing the trilogy to be released in 3-D. It happens quickly but right after Han says, "I'll bet you have," and shoots Greedo the alien says, "Maclunkey," and then gets shot. No one knows what that is supposed to mean. Lucas made the edit then sold the franchise to Disney. This edit has been like a ticking time bomb for the past seven years and it finally went off Tuesday when people saw it. George has to be enjoying the fact that 1) the edit caused so many fanboys to lose their **** and 2) they're blaming Disney for the edit.

    Watchmen keeps getting better and better. Heard that they plan only one season. But, perhaps, if this season is a success they might consider an anthology series. Which would be ideal and very interesting.

    Dublin Murders is a couple episodes in. It's one of those mystery series where you're totally confused all the time cause they don't want to give it away. It's ok.

    Last Week Tonight and Real Time are now done for the year. I think they come back in February. Going to be a long time to be without them especially with what is going on.

    Is there a chance I would enjoy the watchmen just from loving Lindelhofs other work- primarily the leftovers? I also liked most of lost.

    I just don’t get into the comic book genre, but this one sounds like it could be a little different.

    Yes. But I would watch this first.

    It will get you up to speed with Watchmen mythology.

We both enjoyed it for what it was. It wasn't deep, but the CGI was crisp and the premise and quest intriguing enough I will give E2 a look.
    The ending of the episode means they're introducing the Force into a non-Jedi or non-Sith being. The only time beings of that race have been shown in other movies, shows, or canon books, they've all had Force abilities.

    That doesn’t bode well for Trebek, does it?

    New "season" of The Toys That Made Us on Netflix. The new one (4 separate eps) cover TMNT, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, My Little Pony, and WWF(E)/pro wrestling.

    These are nice little episodes, about 45 min long each throughout the series, about how the ideas came about, the struggles, etc. It's like a Behind The Music, except with toys.

    Interesting format - matches are back-to-back combined games like the ToC final, highest 2-game combined score wins the match, first to 3 matches wins a million. Not sure how that one will play out in practice.

    And I agree, this has to be the big sendoff for Trebek.

    And of course someone has posted betting lines: James +110, Ken +115, Brad +280.

    Surprising no one, Amazon has already renewed the LOTR series for a second season.

    I *thought* I had heard about it, but they didn't know how it was going to do, so they didn't overhype it. Especially with the GoT freight train going at the time.

    Huh. That is where my memory is messed up. No season aired yet, so no talking about it.
