  1. Can we get some context here?No.Who peed in your graduated cylinder?
  2. Can we get some context here? I assume you're talking about something besides a bunch of kids jumping on each other.
  3. By all means, enlighten us about how this will go down.Are they sending a Congressman to Guantanamo, killing him, or just making him vanish? Notice the black bag they threw on his head as they took him out of the room? My guess is that they're going to try to use him to get to Abu Nazir. They're not going to take him to county and book him with all the rank-and-file criminals. and
  4. You guys keep talking about Brody's arrest like it's your local vice-cops busting a dealer. This is the CIA. Pretty sure this "arrest" isn't going to make the local blotter.
  5. :goodposting::goodposting::goodposting::goodposting::goodposting::goodposting: STOP COMPLAINNING, GUYS
  6. If they were making a movie about your life who would you want to be the key grip?
  7. What about the cinematography?Sorry I was getting a little worked up reliving the episode and had to take a break. After the show was over I went over to my DVD collection and threw away my copies of Raging Bull, The Godfather, and Citizen Kane. They all look like 8mm home movies shot by a 9 year old colorblind kid with AD/HD now.And the music montages?Now you're just mocking me.

  9. Last night's episode was the best 46 minutes of television in the history of television (I should note that it took me 54 minutes to watch the episode. I had to pause it during the scene between Nero and Jax discussing Gemma since I couldn't see the screen through the tears). Let's start with the writing. Anyone who ever wrote for The West Wing, The Sopranos, Lou Grant, or Mad Men should simply kill themselves after watching the latest episode of SOA. They need to understand the shame they have brought upon the profession of television writing. Compared to SOA everything else might as well be an episode of "She's the Sheriff". The acting? I shouldn't even have to say but I will. I had to remind myself that I was not watching I, Claudius or Breaking Bad several times last night. Is there any ensemble cast that can ever live up to what we saw last night? I once had the good fortune of seeing Dustin Hoffman and John Malkovich in Death of a Salesman. The mere thought of that production now almost makes me vomit. After watching Theo Rossi and Kim Coates last night I have begun to question the casting choices made in the production of every movie and television show ever. And has there ever been a better collection of action sequences in one place? I almost used the term "hyper-realistic" but then I caught myself and punched myself in the face for thinking such thoughts. SOA is super-ultra-hyper-realism. The Normandy Beach sequence in Saving Private Ryan looks like a Pokemon episode next to SOA. There were at least 3 occasions last night where my neighbors came to my door to ask me if I was OK thanks to my screaming. Last but not least has there ever been a more dramatic or compelling cliff-hanger as what we saw last night? 'Who Shot J.R.?' Who gives a ####? Will Ross and Rachel ever get together (again)? Hopefully in hell. Who killed Laura Palmer? Probably Tara Teller because she's so bad-###.
  10. Now that I think about it...you guys are right. I'm sorry.
  11. Uhhh...I don't think there was ever any quality writing to go back to.Between this and The Walking Dead, you sure love to watch shows you dis-like, huh? Why is there this discussion in just about every thread on TV shows?Yes, people watch shows that are flawed. The flaws are talking points. It doesn't mean people dislike the show. Just that they think it could be better. Unfortunately, with the way Sons has gone, the flaws are really the most interesting things to talk about. Yeah Christo, I think we all understand that. But when someone admits to watching both shows, and posts NOTHING but the flaws, that's a bit odd dontchathink?And this bothers you so much because...?A couple flaws sure, more than that (you) just crowds up the thread as others have pointed out. And as those others have said, at some point it's nitpicky/womanlike.But keep up the good work. Crowds? Is there some sort of internet shortage I'm not aware of? And @ 'womanlike'. Some of the worst shows out there are aimed towards women because they are more forgiving when it comes to lack of realism.

  13. Uhhh...I don't think there was ever any quality writing to go back to.Between this and The Walking Dead, you sure love to watch shows you dis-like, huh? Once again...where did I say I disliked either show?I guess I just assumed since I have yet to see you post one positive thing about either in the two threads where you have posted multiple times. In fact, the majority of them you are shining a negative light on both.You know what happens when you assume?Show me one positive post by you regarding either show. http://forums.footballguys.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=418116&view=findpost&p=14710242My link"It's one part soap opera, one part B-movie, one part video game, one part cartoon." Ahhh...I think I've figured it out. You don't realize that this show is full of flaws. You actually think it is "high quality". Sorry about that.
  14. because the chase scene had gone the allotted time and they needed to move on to the next one. And have you noticed that whenever there is a chase scene involving the bikes nobody ever thinks to simply clip or bump one of the bikes. Not to mention how terrible a shot anybody who is shooting at a Son is.Someone wipes out at least once a week, and they always seem to land somewhere soft.Jax did come up limping last night. I hope he's OK.
