The storm trooper thing was on purpose.. They were herding them to A. ( I kept thinking.. " the bomb has been planted")

I thought that at first, but the path didn't make a lot of sense.
Not sure what you mean? The path was pretty obviously marked with the letter A.. Hence my counter strike reference.

Terminous is just wrong. Where are the guards, where are the defenses? They just walked right on in. I'm betting on cannibals with a whole ton of hidden firepower.

That's exactly what I said when the episode ended. Look at all the vegetables and the big grill. Wait - where's the MEAT ... Cannibals.
Even my wife realized this! This was probably the most unrealistic thing I've seen in a while on this show.

As far as I know, zero chance of this happening. You have to pay an unsubsidized price for a new phone or give up the unlimited data.
This.... I've tried myself. In fact, I have heard of cases where if you buy a full priced 4G phone, they pull you off because the unlimited plan was supposedly 3G only.

Use your DL.. Then go out and commit several felonies and run, leaving your license behind ( mess up the pic first). Then when they steal your identity, they go to jail for the felonies and you take theirs!

What do you need a manual for? Most games don't have one (a real one) these days anyway.

So sue me, I like to read manuals Roll Eyes. Back in my day, the manuals were HUGE!!! Of course, they were on stone so even a GTAV size manual weighed more than Fred Flintstone's car. And don't get me started on how long it took to load a program from a cassette...
Ahh. Good old load"*",8,1
I am also disappointed in the manuals now adays.. Granted, you probably don't need them as much for most fps or 3rd person games, and there aren't any real simulator games.. although ARMA could use a good manual.. I still have my Falcon 4.0 binder somewhere...

Nope.  It does change sides once during the movie though with no explanation  icon_lol

I didn't notice a hand switch except for when they first show him to himself.. but that was a mirror...

Spoiler for Hiden:
There are obviously some kind of power issues but then some electronics work, so not an EMP like event, so why don't the radios work? Also sounds like some kind of time dilation going on as well.

Will probably give it at least 2 more episodes before I decide on staying with it.

Let me elaborate... I "think" I understand the concept of the ledger system, but I still don't "get" what a bitcoin is or how it has value. Or the mining stuff I hear about..
Also, I don't see how the security works.. If the universal ledger says we each have 100 bitcoins, at some point I would earn more bitcoins and that would be a single entry until it propagates... Sort of like DNS changes. With DNS changes they start on one server until they spread to the universal DNS "ledger.

Banshee, Bates Motel, The Americans, Cougar Town, The Following - looking forward to all of these!

Intelligence - it's Sawyer with a Chuck implant!

Helix - Ron Moore's new show, viruses, black goop, gonna give it a chance


So far Cougar Town, Banshee and The Following are back and have not disappointed. 

I was surprised by how much I like Intelligence, I had originally decided to pass.  It's nothing too far off a conventional procedural blended with Chuck, but thus far I like how they've used the chip, particularly the 3D rendering sequences.  Also it doesn't hurt that in the short amount of episodes they've already had two guest stars from Lost which of course appeals to my pathetic nostalgic sensibilities.

Helix has also been great.  Even though I'm not particularly fond of anyone in the cast (Rocketman is looking terribly old and wrinkly) and some of the "surprises" have been pretty obvious, the creepy/gory intensity has kept me looking forward to each upcoming episode.  Definitely looking forward to future episodes when 7 of 9 joins the cast.  I really have no idea how they are going to keep the show moving forward when they keep infecting and killing off characters, but I'm excited to see where it goes.
Just saw the 1st and 2nd show of Helix last night and.... I'm not sure yet... I had recorded the limited commercial version of the two episodes (recorded back to back and total of 1.5 hours with the few commercials they had..(WOW 1/2 an hour of commercial for 2 hours of show... never realized that)).. Anyway, with that viewing, I had to force myself to watch the last 1/2 hour... Usually if I am into a show, I have to force myself to stop so I can get some sleep.. I have 2 more episodes recorded, so I will watch them, but if the bug doesn't catch me  paranoid I'll be out...

And by the way the issue is not that the person is allowed to have the operation, it's that the state has to pay for it. A person outside of jail has to foot their own bill.
This! I think this wouldn't even be much of an issue if he was paying for it himself... This person is 64 years old.. Why wasn't it a medical issue before now? Maybe he feels uncomfortable in his body, but tough.. Prison isn't built for comfort...
