| Movie/TV Board|| I Need Well Reasoned Opinion on The Leftovers - VOR on 7/20/14 at 10:26 pm|
I watched the first three (I think it's three) episodes, but missed last week after the first few minutes and all of tonight.
Question. Should I give a shit? Should I make any effort whatsoever to catch up? Will watching it enrich my life? How about mildly entertain me?

| Food and Drink Board|| Question re Grilled Artichokes - Need Answer Today - VOR on 7/4/14 at 11:48 am|
On an impulse, I grabbed an "artichoke grill tray" from Whole Foods. It's basically two artichoke haves (de-choked) with some asparagus wrapped in plastic. Appears to have been pre-seasoned to some extent.
I've never grilled artichokes before, but I always thought it was best to steam or blanch...

From The Bird Writes. Just because . . . why not?

My mind is an absolute blank as to what happened the few times these guys were on the floor together.
In a worst case scenario, what if we played:
Besides sucking at the 3 point line.
Just thinking out loud.

| Food and Drink Board|| Suggestions for Deep Fryer . . . - VOR on 6/14/14 at 9:42 am|
I'm finally dragging out a Tefal deep fryer that we've had in a cabinet for years. Has a basket and thermostat for two temps: 339 and 374 (European silliness).
So I'm debating fish (maybe thin cut catfish), shrimp or oysters. And maybe, just maybe if I'f feeling energetic, I'll give onion rings...

| Food and Drink Board|| High Hat Still Rocks - VOR on 5/31/14 at 11:16 am|
We went last night. Started with the special garden salad with roasted squash, mixed lettuces, creole tomatoes and a really nice vinaigrette.
Pan roasted pompano literally caught that morning with creamy grits and a creole tomato and cucumber relish.
Shrimp creole with braised collards.

I say "obscure" only because I rarely watch anything outside of HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, PBS, Sundance, IFC and Turner Classics. Oh, and every now and then, regular network tv. And sports. And FX for Justified. Okay, that covers most of it, I think. :lol:
I started a related thread on the food b...

So tell, me what are some recommendations (and their respective channels) for shows dealing with dining or cooking...

It's been discussed before, but Brian Cox absolutely knocked it out of the park in 1986 in Manhunter (from the novel, Red Dragon) as Lecter.

| Movie/TV Board|| Under the Skin - VOR on 4/27/14 at 7:05 pm|
I had moderate to decent hopes for this movie, but . . . alas. It has an interesting premise, and Scarlett plays the character with a sort of dysphoria.
Really, though, it should have been a short film. In fact, there was probably less dialogue for 93 minutes than any film in a couple of years....
