Lived through it… Was a big deal in Erie in, what, 2003? I'll be watching this show soon as well.

I'd be really interested in what you have to say about this Erik - what the show got wrong and right.

Got the 2nd series of Westworld on my skyplus but it's going to have to wait till i've finished watching Ghost Adventures. Love that show.

The Expanse is such a great show, it kills me it got cancelled. Hopefully someone picks it up and provides it a decent budget. If not, at least we know the book series will be finished.

  Has anyone checked out The Staircase on Netflix yet?   My wife and I have been watching two episodes a shot for the last couple days.  

   I can’t decide whether or not this guy is guilty.

It's a fantastic series. I bought the DVD when it was released. He is clearly guilty.

SPOILER ALERT

The wounds Kathleen suffered were so violent - could you really have 35 lacerations like that from falling down the stairs? And his manner during his phone call was totally the opposite that you'd expect from someone with his personality and background.

The blow-poke was a red herring from the start, and I never saw that as the murder weapon. The fact that the police hid their knowledge of it is proof of their dishonesty and desire to frame someone who is not necessarily innocent, not something which excuses him. 

What about the German episode? Coincidences do happen, but really? Like that? TWO women dying after falling down stairs with blood everywhere? Come on!

I think the daughters were just pathologically dutiful and brainwashed to a point because the thought and fear of losing their adoptive father AND  stepmother as well as their mother outweighed everything else in their lives and I saw them as excessively needy and I think he played on their vulnerability and took advantage of them emotionally.

I think David Rudolph is extremely bright and competent, but he had an interest in winning the case that extended beyond proving Peterson's innocence. I think he was seduced by the production of the documentary and had to see the narrative out. I think he became very aware of how good he looked and sounded.

In the race of life, always back self-interest. At least you know it's trying.

Netflix releases so many standup specials, it's impossible to keep up but Nanette, was different than most and I didn't expect to be affected so deeply.

Yeah yeah, Tom Cruise, Mission Impossible Fallout.

But the original TV series was so good. Original theme the best. Good writing, teamwork, great cast.

I'm starting to like Westworld less and less. I'll watch season 3 when it comes out, but it's kind of lame. I compared season 2 to a bad M. Night Shyamalan movie, like they wrote contrived plots and bad character decisions just to work a twist at the end. It was kind of cool in season 1, but they really should have gone a different direction to drive the plot in season 2.

My wife and I enjoyed The Good Place. Can't wait for season 3. Just finished the 2nd season of GLOW, too. Great show.

Yeah, same here with WW. There were a couple of great individual episodes, but on the whole, disappointing, especially when sci-fi and westerns are right up my alley. 

I watched the second season of The Good Place a second time, so funny. 

Only got in the first episode of Glow. Too much tv.

I've been putting off watching season two of WW.  I struggled so badly to get through season one it's put me off of this one.  For those of you whom have seen it, does Thandie Newton still spend a lot of time naked?

I finished Succession, couldn't help but binge it and now I'm paying for it, wouldn't say I really liked the show, it was ok, but had to see how it would end, it's just full of terrible awful people. Watching it is almost akin to rubbernecking.

I watched The Americans religiously since the first season.  I have strange interest in Cold War era history so that only added to the fact that it was a wonderfully done show.  I'll feel empty inside once March rolls around and there isn't another season premiering...but I can rest easy knowing they finished the story before the show went to shit.

I didn't binge it - I watched it each week. I liked it, but didn't love it at all.

Ditto. I have the most recent season saved for watching here soon.

I recorded it because I honestly forgot what it was about, but saw it was Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman.

I'm glad I did.

Making It is hilarious, fun, happy, and uplifting. There's not a single bit of negativity, and the show makes you happier. It makes you feel good. It makes you feel like you want to go out and create something.

It's great. I'm glad I accidentally recorded it. If you can, record it now and watch the first two episodes.

    • With the testing results thus far it looks like Red Bull really just decided, "Yeah, the zero pods were actually a good idea but Mercedes is just stupid." Both Newey and GP (Max's race engineer) were grinning ear to ear as Max went out and smashed every other time on the board by nearly a full second despite not being on a qualifying simulation run.

    • DAY 3:  Swing practice in the Golf Garage (52°, PW, 7i) for 30 minutes.  A little fall off from yesterday's gaudy numbers on the shot monitor, which I'm attributing to a little fatigue in the swing.  Post-op rehab continues! ☺️
    • I know of only a few instances where players signed an incorrect score card and my gut is the vast majority of those instances were simple errors and not intentional cheating BUT these are "Pros" and they need to be held to a high standard.  If several thousands of dollars, or millions, is at stake they need to be the professionals they are and take care.  I hate it when it happens but I'll say I agree with keeping the DQ for incorrect score card submitted. AND, since I am not in favor of bifurcation on other parts of the game I'll also hold myself and other amateurs to the same standard. Oh, and I do not year Jordan complaining about the rule.  In fact he said "Rules are Rules and I take full responsibility".  Also, see Scheffler's comments near the end of the attached.  I think this debate is more about fans & the media complaining and not so much about the Professionals complaining. Following Jordan Spieth DQ, debate rages over incorrect-scorecard rule Spieth was disqualified after signing an incorrect scorecard following Round 2.      
    • A few more issues with getting rid of validating scores, and PGA Tour players doing their own scores.  1) The PGA Tour does not run all the tournaments. Example, the Masters is run by Augusta National, the PGA Championship is run by PGA of America, The US Open is run by the USGA, and The Open is run by the R&A. How do you handle these situations? What if the US Open and The Open do not want to use electronic scoring? Do you want golfers to bounce between having to keep track of their scores or not?  2) What if you are on a course where it would be difficult to have score keepers on every hole?  3) What about the Champions tour, Korn Ferry Tour, PGA Latin America, PGA Tour Canada, PGA Tour China? There are other organizations under the umbrella of the PGA Tour, that use the same rules, that probably can't have the resources to do scoring on every hole.  4) Will a score keeper be versed in the rules of golf to know how to score the correct penalty? What if they miss a penalty?  5) Would the players want to validate their scores after a round? I would.  6) People are like, well other sports have it. How many balls are in play in other sports? Football, one. Basketball, one. Baseball, one. In Golf, if you have a 120 golfer field. You could have over 8500 shots taken on the course. Are we sure the PGA Tour can accurately keep track of all those shots? What if a golfer takes 5 hacks to get out of the trees and the scorekeeper missed 3 of them?  It is much more reasonable to keep scoring as is.  I still believe the penalty should be DQ. You can't prove intent of cheating. Not signing for a correct score is worth the highest penalty.
