I have no tolerance for ficticious or reality TV. Waste of brain cells and free time IMO. Is it just me??

There's a ton of cr@p out there, but the best of the best, the cream of the crop shows are very good. I would argue that the best shows in the past decade are much more engaging than anything ever shown on the boob tube before and approach the best movies in terms of writing and engagement.

The Sopranos, The Wire, Deadwood, Game of Thrones, Justified, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Six Feet Under, Treme, Friday Night Lights, even Battlestar Galactica. They are nuanced, intricate, smart and entertaining.

Kill slow play. Allow walking. Reduce ineffective golf instruction. Use environmentally friendly course maintenance.

I'm sure you've seen this Erik, but if not, I thought you'd like it.

Edit: I thought I'd include the text that came with the this video as well.

This video is a tribute to the work of Aaron Sorkin: the recycled dialogue, recurring phrases, and familiar plot lines. This is not intended as a critique but rather a playful excursion through Sorkin's wonderful world of words.

Homeland rules. Sundays are quite the TV binge for me in the fall: NFL, Boardwalk Empire, Dexter, Homeland, Walking Dead, 60 Minutes, PGA Tour final round.

Brutal.

Although, binging on an entire season over the course of like a week is pretty darn fun too. Glass half full!

Mid level cable (golf channel isn't on basic here) Watch some others via Amazon live/Netflix. Breaking Bad is great. Really enjoyed The Shield and Game of Thrones. I watched season one of Homeland; Claire Daines' portrayal of a highly functional bipolar is outstanding. Was annoyed by the numerous bonehead decisions by superiors and last second misses/snafus to catch the bad guys (same issues I had with 24)

And now the full spoiler:

Jesse Plemons goes on another murderous rampage! Ahh, just had to get that out there. FNL season 2 serial killer Landry jokes have come full circle to Breaking Bad.

When you posted this (and the various other posts last month or so re: BB) originally I didn't know or care, as I had not watched a single minute on Breaking Bad.  Since then?  Hooked!  I have watched THE ENTIRE SERIES in the last month or so.  Holy Crap.  [Erik, you are cuh-razy for not liking this! ]  And that episode you are referring to in your spoiler was pretty shocking.

Love this!  And I am a big Aaron Sorkin fan.  Sports Night is my all time favorite show ever ... I've probably seen it 8 times straight through.

Speaking of BB and Sports Night ... anybody know the obscure actor connection between the two?  Hint:  He's in the video above.

Yea, BB kicks ass! I didn't catch the connection here, even though I watched the Sorkinisms clip again. What was it?

    • Day 322: lighter day with some mirror work. Working on the downswing feels to get the hips more open. 
    • A flushed towering 152 yard 8-iron that never left the pin to a foot and a half on the 17th hole after a solid drive. The ensuing birdie putt completed our two man team match claw back to even after being four down through 10.  Tied 18th and the match but felt like a win.
    • A gross 6 under for a scramble is not that good. I would buy it. Our gross winning score is usually 17-18 under. First time I've heard of a handicapped scramble.
    • Absolutely. If my skills were reversed and I was a better putter than driver of the ball, I would have made that 8-footer. For double bogey  Mine is completely blind because it goes downhill starting basically right at the corner of the dogleg with the fairway sloping left to right. I know the line to take from experience, but just to give you an idea how it sets up, I hit directly over the two trees that the white line on my screenshot passes over, with a draw. I'm pretty sure my ball landed on the left side of the fairway. The safe way is to just hit it 220 to the corner and leave yourself just under 150 into a pretty large green, but there's very little reason not to be aggressive on this hole.
