Wow.

1GB per Second Internet, and a $0/month Internet option.

Per a ****** comment, the $0/month option is still 5mpbs download... which is not bad at all.
And apparently all you have to do is live in Kansas City to get it...

It's pretty funny. Google started out as an awesome resource that promoted a free and open internet experience. For the past several years they've been corralling you into restrictive products, services and agreements. Google's awesomeness was that they weren't mid 90s AOL. And now, they're trying to be mid 90s AOL. Google as ISP. Sad.

I can understand not liking the end of the last season but when you say shows like that name one that was or is remotely like Lost, heh. Getting mad a show that is so unique and will likely never be duplicated and letting that madness drive you to reality TV...man...

The same company that provides a majority of the internet services that the average consumer uses also providing the internet connection. What could possibly go wrong?

Entourage pissed me off with the dragging out of the storyline. Sopranos was another that got really dumb towards the end. Back in the day my high school sweetheart got me hooked on 90210 of all things and that show dragged on. They're all the same. Basically soap operas, but on at night. Providing maddening plot lines and BS cliff hangers at the end of seasons to tease you to come back. I'm done with them.

Didn't say Lost specifically drove me to reality TV. Just certain reality shows like Deadliest Catch, Ax Men, etc... But I just rather devote free time for TV shows that are educational. Discovery Channel, TLC, History, History2, Military History, Military Channel, **** like that. But with Caps games on just about every night during the winter, Nats and O's on every night during the summer, and the Skins gearing up, I mainly watch sports.

I was more than happy for Entourage to drag out the story. Loved that show. Can't wait for the movie to be done. Script is being written now.


Reality TV is just horrible for the most part. No thanks, I'll stick to fiction for my entertainment rather than some scripted BS that's mostly faked for camera or edited to be more than it really is.

I am not remotely surprised.


Separately: Entourage was a very entertaining show, and I've seen all the episodes, but ******* are those characters unlikable. The only remotely likable ones are Ari and, a ways behind him, Drama. Drama is at least genuine and sympathetic...Turtle, E, and, far and away the worst, Vince are the most unrelenting tools ever. I guess Marky Mark did help create it after all.

About 30 minutes into the Opening Ceremonies and I don't know what to say. Didn't know Dr. Loveless was so big in Britain.



I it appears Dr. Loveless is MCing this fabulous event.

When will this become relevant to the Olympics? So far its been a British History lesson.

The Shark Tank is probably my favorite show right now. Probably b/c I'm a business major.

Paul McCartney saved the Opening Ceremonies for me. Grandpa Paul rocked it.

I liked the show because of the chemistry bit (I'm a chem grad student), but wow is breaking bad depressing. I get a crappy vibe everytime i'm done watching an episode.

After they killed off Paco (my favorite charactor in Training Day) I stopped watching.

The Canadian version is actually so much better.

another fine example of stellar officiating: NK players takes down a French player with a knee to knee, French player gets a yellow card for diving

5 - 0 France

Watching Women's Beach Volleyball is like watching soft core porn, IMO. Fabulous.

Really? Bummer.

I will wait for it to come out on DVD before I see it, but I got the feeling that this one was moving to close to the cartoon BS of the previous Batman movies when I saw Bain. That is one strike against before I even see it. Not a good start.

FWIW, I loved it. Definitely a perfect ending to the trilogy. A lot of flashbacks and emotional moments.

Was the opposite of Cartoon BS. Batman doesn't even appear for the first half of the movie.

My hope is partially restored. I am half tempted to go see it in the movie theater now. On second thought nevermind. The Wife informed me a troubled gentleman was just picked up in Crofton, MD for possibly attempting a copy cat of what happened in Colorado. House full of guns to boot. Crofton is 15 minutes from my house. I'll wait for the DVD.

Another topic, got bored tonight and decided to finally check out The Wire. 3 epiodes in and I am pleasantly surprised.
