Rewatching

Post by ed »

Seems like all the new stuff is a thin rehash of the old stuff. We started re-watching.

Currently:

Project Runway from Season 1 Episode 1 to season 17. We are midway thru season 8.

True Detective Season 1. Forgot how really good McConnnohey and Harrelson are in this.

Next up: 24. <-------- Guilty pleasure AND The Wire. Is it as good as remembered? Makes no nevermind, I remember nothing.

I couldn't leave without awarding you a few points for excellent usage of this rare idiom. Four Stuffy British Stereotype Guy points. Those are valuable.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"
