We severely limit what they can access to a few sites that we've approved (pop tropica, webkinz world or whatever it's called, and a few other sites like those which only allow text based chatting character to character).  They do get to check the weather and search on topics for school or look up words and what not.

They NEVER browse into the wild. We do let them hit up youtube for videos about kid stuff and so far they haven't stumbled across anything terrible.

We do let them browse library sites and app stores and things.  We've had discussions in general that there are things they are not old enough to know about and things they should not see at this age. They take us at our word and haven't been pressing the boundaries yet.

Good call, there, POTUS. Actually, quite brave to do so publicly.

The militarization of our police forces should be disconcerting for the American populace especially given how the NSA is eating up all of our meta data to keep us all in line.

I hope the practice of putting military hardware into police hands is curtailed or stopped. If only the politicians weren't in the pockets of the military industrial complex.

Besides, the army will need the equipment when we invade Iraq again.

He can't be in witness protection if they're making a new show where he continues doing business as Saul Goodman, right?

Was curious, actually, about how they were going to do that...if perhaps the show focuses around Saul BEFORE he meets WW. That would be pretty interesting actually. Show how he connected with Gus and Mike but only as call backs to BB, not main plot points.

Could be an interesting show but I'm not sure it can support the weight of a whole series...

Why do you buy Destiny over and over and over again?

Oh lawd! I hope not.  If I am I can see myself not gaming for a while.

I agree that the first two seasons are a little clunky and formulaic.  I would say that it's the one-two punch of Gus and Saul that not only turned the show around but also opened things up, giving them new avenues to explore.

I'm glad to see these comments here, too, because I made this same statement the other day with three people in various states of watching the series (one was almost done, one about half way through, and the last was thinking about starting).  I mentioned the awkward first couple of seasons as a way of warning the guy not to give up on it (I would have, if people hadn't been raving so hard), but the other two guys looked at me like I'd said something blasphemous.

Saul was critical writing and plot device. Every time regular joe's walt and jesse needed something that a real person would have no idea how to do, it was explained away that Saul had contacts.   Plausible and an easy out for when the writers could have hit a dead end.

But this is also is why I kind of didn't buy that saul was in 'witness protection' at the end.

Spoils

Season 5 was easily the best season of the show's run. Can't imagine having had to wait a week between episodes.

I'm not a BB nuthugger as I think the first two seasons were pretty mediocre. However, when Gus came on the scene things really started picking up.

Season five took it to a whole new level of tension and depth.  Thought it was just about perfect.

Final episode was excellent and did what it needed to do.

Also, I'm going to say that this show has some of the best directing ever seen on tv.  I would occasionally get annoyed by some of the kooky camera work, but when I settled in and just watched, i realized that it would eventually lead somewhere.

Edit: there were also brave choices in the writing.  Having Gomie killed off screen was very potent...and the show consistently had people die who didn't 'deserve' it.  They did a good job in just a few scenes showing the weight and impact of Hank being killed.

I'd give the overall series a 4/5.

From what I understand Kojima came out in a bikini and he's replacing Lara Croft in the XB1 exclusive version of Tomb Raider.

They didn't even really have a plan for the war other than to race for baghdad.  If they had consolidated as they went it would have made things more secure, but probably more bloody and protracted for the original invasion.

Tomb Raider is an odd pick.

I don't see it as a big enough franchise to be a system seller so why do it at all? It's likely not going to drive XB1 sales...

and their actions led to the dilution of quality and eventual break-up of Infinity Ward.  

I think titanfall points to the fact that not all of the problems with the IW core were Activision's fault and they had ceded COD A game developer title to Treyarch quite a while before that.

I think Moliere's semi-serious point is that the dems have been blaming everything on Bush from the beginning and are still doing so.

Now obviously, he got us into this mess in Iraq by lying his ass off, but Obama has not necessarily been stalwart or focused or consistent in how he deals with foreign policy flares ups  in the middle east anywhere.

I went with a battlemage and a wayfarer as my two characters to avoid the cliche have one ranged guy and one melee guy.

However, they're inordinately weak in combat and have very few options spell/skill wise. I found a level 3 NPC and he had a host of more capable spells and such.

Did I just pick weak classes?

Listen to the Bombcast week in and week out but it's far less fun than it used to be. New blood seems to be making it more enjoyable, but Gerstmann has become so cynical about EVERYTHING that it just drains the life out of the show.

So naturally I type this and then finally get to the 7/22 podcast where Brad has taken over as host and it's the best show they've done in a long time. Lots of tangential conversations about movies, food and pooping.  Rykert is a character.
