Re: Ric Ocasek (The Cars) dies at 75

I just listened to All Mixed Up, probably my favorite cars song.

ABC's overnight news didn't mention it. NBC 4AM Today Show Did.

I remember seeing BOC at Tod...

New Season 2019/2020

The new TV season starts in roughly two weeks. Are their any new shows that might sound interesting to you? Are they their shows you're looking forward coming back? I know I do this every year but a thread like this always brings some traffic.

Re: Old TV and Movie Cliches

A minor detail introduced in the early part of the movie will turn into a crucial part of the end of it. Here's an example. Early in the film we find out the Villain has a peanut allergy. At the end of the movie the trapped heroine gets away by excusing herself to put on some sexy, finding some Plan...
