  1. It probably isn't a coincidence. If I shop online at certain retailers the ads I see on this board are geared to the exact products I looked at. There is absolutely no way it could be a coincidence, so they must be using cookies to generate ads now. They could probably do the same with the keywords of threads. I'm just guessing, but it wouldn't surprise me at all.
  2. I think part of it is airbrushing. The pic like the one you posted is totally "touched up" to the point of even changing the shape of her face, imo. On the show, she looks a lot more like that picture without the makeup. Of course, she looks much better with the make-up, I'm just talking about her facial structure. I think she looks very good, but I'm not sure she ever looked like the touched up picture, at least not in the last 20 years.
  3. I'm excited about it, HBO has a pretty good track record. I think people who see the show before they read the books will probably be happier with it than those who read the books first. But even if the show doesn't quite live up to the books (and I'm not sure it could without a Rome like budget) We'll, see.
  4. Clearly written by someone who hasn't read the books. There's tons of magic in them.
  5. I can't believe these people still have jobs. How can you work in the media and think it's ok to say these things? At least JW showed some joy in his his skating, which can't be said for Plushenko. http://tiny.cc/JaG1T
  6. Thanks so much for answering DaytimeFan. That's something I've always wondered about. I can imagine it's not easy to say no, especially when one is dealing with a high powered patient. If nothing else, I wish someone had been able to slow some of these people (such as Hunter Tylo) down a bit.
  7. Don't doctors have some obligation to put on the brakes when someone has gone too far and is making a mess of their face? Or is it a situation where, as long as what the person wants isn't physically dangerous the doctor can ethically let them keep going.
  8. He just left. I don't know if you saw the epi where his girl friend was killed, but after that he had a hard time. He left a note for Spencer up at the cabin telling him that he just couldn't continue with the job. We don't know where he went or what he's doing.
  9. That is such a sad, untrue statement. Hollywood has really warped people's self image. The saddest part is there is no going back. Going forward most people will likely have unrealistic ideas about what they should look like, especially as they age and will never manage to be happy with what they see in the mirror. All thanks to the smoke and mirrors the media puts out there.

  11. Unfortunately, this one is only a tiny step above a straight up procedural so far. Hettie is saving it for me, but at the same time these shows tend to work better with a tortured alpha male lead. I just hope that they manage to make this a better show over time. I'm not sure if it's going to work with the cast they have. For me, the only once that are working are Hettie, G and the shrink. The other female lead just doesn't have chemistry with the rest of the cast thus far.
  12. This latest episode was good. I'm glad they focused a little more on the characters personal lives for the holiday episode.
  13. I bet they will come through with a good 100th episode. This show usually doesn't disappoint.
  14. I am. I still like this show a lot.
  15. Me too. Despite my disdain for procedurals I've watched many and I think NCIS is really a cut above. Criminal Minds isn't half bad either (Matthew Grey Gubler is all kinds of hot), but NCIS has managed to create characters that are easy to care about. Now if only I could get just a little tiny taste of Ziva I'd really be happy. I don't need them to be a real couple. I just need a little more push pull kind of like Scarecrow and Mrs. King before they ruined the show by getting the characters together.
  16. I've heard it's the rerun marathons on USA. People see the show and then fall for the characters, which is something I can definitely relate to. I hate procedurals almost as much as medical and lawyer shows, but NCIS is something special. The cast has a ton of chemistry with each other. I don't think they've captured the magic with the spin off, but I guess we'll see.
  17. At Merlotte's sitting at table 4, trying to wave down Daphne.

  18. I love your posts as well mark. This idea of rating other people's opinions is silly.

  19. Hi Greg. I miss seeing you in the Y&R thread.

    I hope you stop by soon.

  20. I love Nathan Fillion, but I feel this type of show has been done to death. Sometimes I think original programming can only make it on cable.
  21. Love reading your OLTl posts!

  22. It's the music rights that are an issue. In the early 80's they started using pop songs a lot more and the rights to rebroadcast that music is prohibitively expensive. I keep hoping that issue will be worked out one of these days so we can see the last 8 years or so. I think Ryan's hope is very slow paced and that's why a lot of people find it boring. I always think of RH when people start saying they want more family scenes. RH was had such a strong family core, at least in the beginning. It's truly a character driven show. I wish there were room for another soap like it today, but I just don't see it. People expect a faster pace and more outrageous drama than shows like RH have. I find it so endearing because on RH a divorce was such a huge , scandalous thing and people actually believe you should be married forever. Now most main characters have been married 7 or 8 times, so things like affairs and divorce really don't create all that much drama.
  23. I enjoy reading your posts on the AMC board, but it's sad to see the show's biggest cheerleader discouraged. I hope you are back to loving the show again soon.

  24. Just dropping by to say hello to my fellow Ryan's Hope fan. I'm so thrilled it's coming back full time. Hope you are enjoying it as much as I am!
