Color me impressed. I was waiting for the first season to end and become available on Netflix.
Really cool. The writing, so far, is impressive.
Are there any more comic shows in development along the same gritty lines as this? I can easily see the DC canon as being more easily adaptable for t...

I already installed the "2nd keyboard" and can already use emoticons in text messages, but can we create or use animated emoticons, or use the ones TD uses (like :nana:, :banghead:, or :cheers:)?
TD.com has the best. Most other websites have emoticons (and some of the iPhone's, too) that look ...

Friend of mine wants to ditch Cox for this, and after looking it up it really looks like a shite deal with throttled speeds once you pass your data cap...80 GB/month for $99/month.:dope:
I told him to avoid it like the plague.
Sounds fricked up. They push the high speed but downplay the low cap....
| O-T Lounge|| Which car holds up better and has cheaper maintenance? - CCT on 7/11/13 at 7:31 pm|
I want a more solid feel to the car that does not get too rattley (i.e. Toyota, Nissan, Fords) and break down too much. I'm looking at used cars and these three all have over 100K miles but I've heard all are good, engine wise and should last a few more years, yet.
Lexus ES 350
BMW 525 series

Why the hell did those brilliant Apple engineers think it was a good idea to leave arrow keys off the keypad? Maneuvering the cursor is a fricking bitch with real, manly man, work-thickened fingers. Is there an app that adds arrow keys...preferably free? It's a company phone so I can't change phones...

Another good Brit show I found on Netflix; haven't seen any mention of it here.
Check it out. The show is set in the late 50's in London's dirt-poor East End, and follows midwife Nurse Jenny Lee. The production values are as good as Foyle's War and Downton Abbey, and the writing, acting, and dire...

I love the oldies they play (though they do some strange interspersing with new shite - really strange - but it sounds like the bass gain is turned all the way to fricking 11. The distortion makes it horrible for some songs that are engineered with purposeful distortion (Jumpin Jack Flash) or heavy ba...

Does anyone use the perculator anymore? Seems to me I got a much better flavor years ago than I did from the Mr Coffee drippers...closer to the Keurig, but there's still something in the Keurig that is lacking. I love my Keurig, don't get me wrong (and Newman's Own cups) and much prefer it to the dr...
| Movie/TV Board|| What actors/actresses other than Robert Downey have done rehab and got better? - CCT on 1/13/13 at 12:58 am|
Robert Downey Jr's life was going in a fast spiral down the shitter before he straightened up and made an successful comeback. Who else has done this? I think Dennis Hopper did, but he never really hit the depths that RDJ did...I think it was mostly his health. Can't even think of any actresses who...
