Well, I've got brain damage on the side of my brain, and I don't know which side, left or right, where I huffed gasoline for ten long years.




Man, still can't bring myself to really watch that season. What a shameful follow-up.

I ducked out on episode 3 or 4 I think. I watched the poo poo out of that first season, I got dark drunk on it.

I saw when the cocktail waitress opened the sixth bottle, and there was a great beach theme night; and the sun became black as Goon Lust, and the whole moon became as blush.


Wow that is bad

My Boomer mom watches these kind of shows where everyone talks in paragraphs. They're like political cop dramas I don't even know what she's watching but it's like what you guys have posted.

No one talks like this that I've ever known but then I didn't go to college do people talk like this in academia?

Anywhere?

I've noticed from that scene and a few other scenes in stuff hes done that Nic Pizzolatto seems to think Johnnie Walker Blue is the pinnacle of whiskey. When its actually a poo poo tier blend that everyone only thinks is good because its $200 a bottle.

I don't think they exist. Conversational speech and performed (or written) text are just different in style. It's similar to the difference between Hollywood shiny visual production and on the ground video of actual events - the point isn't to feel like real life, but to be appealing on its own.

Of course, that requires the manuscript and actors to be, you know, good.

God drat it don't remind me about true detective season 2. The worst 12 hours I have wasted on TV.

Remember gay bike cop who maybe was banging his mom dying without finishing any of story arcs.

Do you remember anything about the lady cop expect she had a sex worker sister?

Other cum son and that whole plot line was funny though.

Its actually fine and way more accessible than the stuff that tastes like Band-Aids roasting on a campfire. I think its a good gifting whiskey because the receiver can break it out on special occasions and even people that aren't insistent scotch drinkers will enjoy it.

The problem is its a $50 bottle with a $200 price tag. Its hilariously overpriced for what it is.

Someone in TVIV posted this recently and it's so bad I genuinely cannot fathom another scene in television history coming close to stealing the title from it. And if there is, I don't want to hear it because this poo poo is so bad I'm still trying to un-cringe from it weeks later.

The scene where Colin Quinn beat up the bully's dad was a great scene and season 2 would have been better if they just limited it all to the events leading up to that scene and ended it there. Know when to exit.

I will not shut up about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I talk about them all the time and work them into every conversation I have. I built a shrine in my room for the yellow one who died because sadly no one noticed because she died around 9/11. Wanna see it?

Sure, they're visually impressive, but a lot of posters find large avatars physically uncomfortable. Furthermore, the owners of large avatars often rely on their size alone and don't bother to develop more refined posting techniques.

I got one of those JW gift boxes with little 200ml bottles of Black, Gold, Platinum, and Blue from a friend earlier this year. Gold sucks hard. Blue is fine but yeah lol at $200 a bottle. The Plat was really good imo though. Black is black, itís fine with some soda.
