  1. Malcolm in the Middle: Dewey, Reese, and Craig Letterkenny: Shoresy, Reilly, and Jonesy
  2. Count me on the team that has hung on too long. My kids hated Coral, and they got their wish for him to die. Yet, Eugene, one of the most awful TV characters of all time goofballs on. Why couldn't Carol have taken Eugene into the backyard to look at the flowers? Well at least Coral/Henry has come back to annoy my kids
  3. I am from California, but I saw the boys on Sullivan live, and wish I still had enough hair left to sport a man bun
  4. Not sure if I should be proud of that accomplishment, but all I can say is "Cream Tangerine!" (I'm still wounded by the K4 ranking)
  5. ManOfSteelhead's Top 10 for KristaQuatro: In My Life Eleanor Rigby Dear Prudence Hey Jude Let it Be A Day in the Life While My Guitar Gently Weeps Across the Universe Strawberry Fields Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds If you haven't lately can you please post an updated list of everyone's #1 guesses?
  6. I was just recovering from the song-shaming of Savoy Truffle - now this. Oh the humanity...
  7. Ouch. This is definitely top 20 for me..... If I had to choose I would likely classify myself as an early Beatles fan, but have always really liked Savoy Truffle and Glass Onion.
  8. I didn't even ask for the additional $50 off per month; he just asked if I'd stay if my payment was $33 a month and I said sure! Didn't push it asking for free Sunday ticket. I have been with them for at least 15 years (which we know counts for nothing), and they also thanked me for being a customer since 2017 (which is when I disconnected for a few hours) haha
  9. A year ago I disconnected and then made the call. Got my Xttra package down to $77/month for the first 12 months, then $81for the next 12 months, plus free Sunday ticket and $200 gift card. Then last week get my bill for month 13 and it is $130. Immediately make the call to Retentions to cancel/negotiate. Am told that it went up $50 cuz they automatically added Sunday Ticket 2018. Told them to take Sunday Ticket off, and then he offers to give me an additional $50 credit per month for the next 12 months, plus reimburse me the $53 they overcharged me this month. My payment will now be $33 per month for the upcoming year, and I barely had to fight for it!
  10. The two worst I have ever seen I unfortunately saw consecutively. The first Blair Witch movie was getting heavy hype, so I was expecting something exceptional. Wow, was I in for a surprise. Just brutally bad from start to finish. I was actually mad that I stayed to the end. Followed that one up with a Midsummer Night's Dream. This is probably the worst of all time for me; truly made me want to scromit (a new word I learned this week). Just checked out Birdemic. Wow, they spent about $10,000 on it? That was about $11,000 too much.
  11. So here are the results of my annual song and dance: Cancelled service a week ago just shy of the end of the contract. Called the next day to see what new deals I was eligible for. Turns out there weren't any cuz it had not been a full year since my last great deal. Called back a couple of days later (ask for the Reconnect department ), and now I was eligible for the "All Inclusive Offer." I have the XTRA package with 3 TVs, and this offer got me $55 off per month, 12 month contract, free Sunday ticket, free HBO for 3 months. Said I would need the $200 gift card to stay, and the rep said let's just give you a $200 credit instead. Works for me! Considered switching to Directv Now instead, but was disappointed.
  12. So DirecTV was not scheduled to turn off our service until next Friday. Wake up this morning and we are disconnected. Go figure. So I call Retentions, and then they give me $47 off per month, free Sunday Ticket Max, free Movie channels, the $200 Gift card, and I asked and received a $33 credit for the extra that they charged me last month. 12 month commitment. All without a fight. Bottom line: I don't really see the point of putting your cancellation date out into the future if your contract is up. Just cancel now, then they will treat you like a new customer and you are eligible for all of the good offers. They would barely give me the time of day prior to cancelling. Thanks to all for relaying your experiences.
  13. My contract is up, so I set a cancellation date 2 weeks out with a goal of getting the $50 per month off deal and gift card (all they would offer me up front was $20 off per month). Waited one week; no email and no phone call. Called again today, and the best they could do was $30 off per month, and no gift card. Guess I may actually have to cancel to get them to offer their best deal...
