  1. I just learned that a relative that I'm very close with has a highly aggressive cancer. He's declining quickly and doctors have given him one or two weeks. I'm gutted and still trying to process it. Flying out soon to see him for the last time. I'm not sure what state he'll be in or how long I would be able to converse with him, but do I approach it? Is it ok to reminisce and joke about better times; do I focus on how he is doing in the moment; we have always had philosophical discussions, but do I even go near how he is dealing with his own mortality? Besides telling him I love him, what should be my last words when I leave? What can I possibly say to his parents (my uncle and aunt) and children? Emphasis of course being on words that somehow help them, not necessarily what I need. This is really the first time I've been in a situation like this. The previous close people to me that have passed either went suddenly, happened when I was a kid, or had dementia.
  2. Cornell cover of Whitney Houston - I Will Always Love You Cornell cover of Michael Jackson - Billie Jean Always thought his cover of Billie Jean was brilliant, but somehow hadn't heard the first one till today.
  3. I've been watching this and am now on season 3 - it's excellent. And it's nice to have a show with each episode having a stand alone plot/characters, and basically amounting to a short movie.
  4. In that last scene when Jimmy and Kim were eating pie, Kim had on a University of American Samoa sweatshirt
  5. I would think so. And I don't see why any other team would want him as their starting QB for next season.
  6. Pretty good season, but not great. Steve Murphy was the weakest part of the show, particularly for being one of the main characters. The actor for the part wasn't great, but it might have been because there was little room for character development and the dialogue he was given was at times cringeworthy - I just didn't care for Murphy much at all during his scenes. And I don't have a problem with narration in general, but the lines he was given was cliched and also at times seemed to state the obvious, as if the viewer couldn't follow.

  8. Just saw that Better Call Saul is on Netflix. Gonna have to send it to the top of my list.
  9. I think I get what you're saying, but I'm not so sure Avery represents poor. I don't know how much he paid for his defense, but I'm thinking it was a lot of money that the state awarded him for his earlier wrongful conviction. And that money got Avery very good representation at his trial, despite him losing. On the other hand, Brendan initially had that crook Kachinsky and then that second pair of appointed lawyers who, while not corrupt, were not in the same league as Strang and Buting. He didn't have a decent team until the wrongful convictions group from Northwestern got involved in his post conviction hearing. I think the larger theme, aside from just rich/poor, was alluded to in one of Strang's reflections about the system in a later episodes:
  10. Really? Yeah, really. How did he even know who Mike Milligan was?Was wondering this too. I'm sure I forgot something though. My first thought was the Indian (who was following Ed at the end of the previous episode), was forcing Ed to do it, in an attempt to lure Milligan. Though after Ed made the phone call, they never showed him with the Indian. Or maybe the cops, now working with the Gerhardts, caught up with Ed and are in on it.
