I think Ava kills Boyd (after serving him chicken)and then Raylan kills her. He leaves the service in disgrace and becomes a security guard in Florida. He gets to see his daughter every other weekend, cause his super hot baby mama realizes she can do better than a broken down gun fighter..

Why wouldn't you want to join? The union is there for your benefit and protects you. It makes everything easier for the workers and management (everything has to be documented and witnessed). I know unions get a bad rep on here, but they serve a purpose and are necessary in many instances.. ...

I always kind of thought there was supposed to be something extraordinary about Oliver's abilities, strength, healing power, speed.. Maybe not quite superhuman (or meta), but something of a supernatural undertone. I assumed that the flashbacks would kind of show that somehow. Of course he is highly ...

Since this topic was posted..
Pistons have lost 4 in a row after getting beat by 20 by Philly tonight (only scoring 69 points)..
Rockets have won 3 in a row after beating the Mavs tonight without D. Howard (Smith led the team with 18/6/3 blocks off the bench)..
I guess the trend is over.....

Good episode, but I can't wait for Oliver to get back. Next week looks like it's going to really hit it off. Not sure he'll be ready for full combat that quick though..
Also, I can't stand that Laurel won't tell her dad that Sara is dead. It's just cruel now.. ...

I don't want to oversell it, because it's basically a low budget TWD. But it picks up and has a couple of surprises. I like the fast moving zombies ove...

Luther (quit after 3 episodes, the girl with the messed up lips bothered me)
Peaky Blinders (I just couldn't get into it)...

He was awesome in Hustle and Flow, which was just a great movie. My mom even got her church group to watch it and they all loved it. He seems to pick the right roles.
Speaking of "Z nation", I just finished the 1st season the other day. Started off really goofy, but actually ended up being good. ...

Weird question, but how about UCLA in 1980?
Center- Abdul-Jabbar, Walton, Nater
PF- Wicks, Vandeweghe, Greenwood

Aldridge's 6-8 week injury equates to 20-25 games. They are in big trouble if they are a 500 team (or below) during that span[/quote]
Portland is 18 games over .500 (31-13). Playing .500 ball over 24 games would leave them at 43-25, which is...

That's a shame. I used to listen to Carolla and Burr's podcasts at work when I worked overnights. Both are really good. So are Rogan and Mohr..
Is Carolla any different now? I heard he shook up his show a bit and got a different girl. I haven't listened to him in a couple of months though.. ...

I had to go with him. He has the ability to play 2-3 positions. Has by far the most playoff experience. Is the best defender on the list, so he doesn't have to score to be effective. Has a good reputation as a team guy and is unselfish, so he should fit in without m...
