Net Neutrality

Yeah, my concern is for subscription based VPNs, not so much the VPNs that companies set up for employee use. I use NordVPN right now. Amazon and Netflix already block VPN with some effectiveness, so I'm sure ISPs could do utilize similar measures to identify them for throttling. There's some cat an...

Net Neutrality

I've had a VPN for a while but my fear is that they'll be the first target for throttling.

74178 What does boy Ford mean when he tells William "this game is for you". Just Ford teasing him because he thinks William will die by the hands of the hosts? I think it is clear none of this is for William, but he happens to benefit from a robot uprising because he wanted real stakes. T...

Westworld - s02e01

I thought this was a slow start for the season, but I guess it's expected that they would retread some ground and take their time to give viewers space to catch up. I didn't recognize the person in the water as Teddy but I guess that would make sense. The shot lingered too long to just be a random h...

Netflix Lost in Space

Yeah, I'm actually probably wrong on that -- PG is likely closer to the mark. It's been a while since I paid attention to ratings (no kids of my own, and my parents were always pretty lax in letting me watch more mature things when I was young). It's definitely less dark/scary than Stranger Things, ...

Yeah, it is pretty much a family show. It's thoroughly PG-13.

Netflix Lost in Space

I'd call this show average, shading towards good. The effects are excellent and used to good effect (the robot, the planet, some of the action sequences). It doesn't have what you'd call an airtight plot, the themes are really broad, and most of the characters are pretty bland and/or one-note but I ...

The one detail I noticed is that when David was talking to present Syd on the roof, she said "It's like you said, reality is a choice" which I can't recall David ever saying (though I could be wrong on that). However it does ring of what Farouk said to David this episode, about how they ca...

Westworld Producers Claim They'll Spoil All of Season 2 if Reddit Comment Gets Enough Upvotes

I see where they're coming from, but I think this is a fairly poor idea. It'll make it a lot easier for people to maliciously spoil the season, and it'll also spoil a lot of the fun for people coming up with and crowdsourcing theories if everyone knows the answer is already out there. It could put a...

Here's the post Quoted: Hey Reddit! Many thanks for your great questions and thoughts.

I don't think David is still in the orb. If that were the case the scenes with Syd where they talk how they found David (and how he might disappear again) would either make no sense or be for nothing. I don't have much of a clue what's happening with Oliver/Farouk/Lenny though. Why did David lie to ...

Watching Strategy for WW

I may discuss the show here but I'm thinking I'll certainly avoid larger forums, social media and news stories. I stopped visiting reddit after the second episode of season 1 but of course that was early enough to be exposed to the William=MIB theory, which I'd like to think I would've figured out o...

Poll: The Office vs Parks and Rec

I haven't done a full viewing of The Office but I think I've seen most episodes. I watched Parks & Rec as it aired and enjoyed it a bit more... neither are among my favorite shows though. I felt like Parks & Rec fell off in quality later in the series, or maybe it was just the way everyone i...

The idea of arming teachers is indeed an absurd and outrageous proposal. In addition to all of the logistical problems, the potential for accidents, the increased risk of suicide it would have, etc... when you stop to think about how an attack would play out with multiple armed teachers or faculty o...

The Tick exclusive clips: See the hero back in action

I just binged this show and enjoyed it quite a bit. I really liked the idiosyncratic villainy of the Terror, and the performance given by Peter Serafinowicz as The Tick. Pretty fun and funny overall. It reminded me a little bit of Chuck, from the upbeat intro animated intro sequence, the nerdy/reluc...

For a long time I was pretty ambivalent on gun control, seeing mass shootings and gun crime as more of a wedge issue and distraction than something that can be realistically addressed... but it's possible we'll eventually reach some sort of tipping point, and I hope we do.

Trial & Error - NBC Mockumentary staring John Lithgow

I liked Parks and Rec and saw that this show seemed to be reviewed pretty well, but over the four episodes I watched it hardly got a single laugh out of me. It think it's because for me it leaned too heavily on the characters being total weirdos for humor vs. being clever with characters that have e...
