My brother plays a lot of board games and introduced me to several of them over the holidays and it definitely made me want to play those a lot more. I had tons of fun trying the aforementioned 7 Wonders and Ticket to Ride.
We also played Small World and Jamaica which are a lot of fun too. For a...

[quote]True Detective and Fargo are anthology series so each season there's a new story, cast, and setting. It's a series that consists of a "miniseries" each season.[/quote]
I get that. I was just wondering why the Emmys nominated it as a drama series instead of a miniseries, which is what I thi...

Strange that Fincher is nominated for Best Director yet Gone Girl is not nominated (even with the comedy/drama split) for Best Picture.
Also interesting that True Detective is under miniseries and not drama like at the Emmys. I wonder if HBO submitted it as a miniseries or if it's the Foreign Pre...

Thanks for info everyone. I did feel it was unnecessary to get a smart TV given what my blu-ray can do. I'll just go for bigger/better instead!...
| Tech Board|| Smart TV benefits - Charleaux on 11/12/14 at 6:33 am|
My wife has mentioned that she would like to get a new TV for Christmas and looking online smart TVs seem to be pretty popular. We currently have a regular 40" TV and no experience with smart TVs so I was wondering what exactly do smart TVs offer that regular TV don't.
Is it just the ability to ...

[quote]Just dropping in to say that I absolutely loved the ending of the book. It was awesomely sinister. I have no idea why some people don't like it.[/quote]
I feel the same. Very refreshing from the usual happy ending most people want and expect. Glad they didn't change it for the movie....
| Movie/TV Board|| re: GoT readers: I just started reading Sanderson's "Mistborn" - Charleaux on 5/30/14 at 4:30 pm|
I'll also throw Anthony Ryan's Blood Song in the mix. It's the first book in (another) planned trilogy but I found it pretty entertaining. Similar to Rothfuss in it's structure....

The "YouTube" sensations also get on my nerves. And I hate how a lot of teams tend to group up for challenges the last few seasons. I'm happy to see Jet and Cord just do their own thing. Definitely want them to go far....

Thanks to my dual citizenship I'll be cheering for both Canada and the US. Really looking forward to see how canada fares in hockey and curling!...
| Movie/TV Board|| re: Anyone see the preview for the next Amazing Race season? - Charleaux on 1/27/14 at 7:29 am|
I saw that too. Between this and Big Brother, I thought we were finally done with Rachel and her man. Guess I was wrong. The "YouTube sensations" were also really annoying in their season so this could be a miserable season to sit through!...

May be hard to mess up Mexican food but Velvet Cactus in Lakeview certainly did it last time I was there. The people of this board have led me to some awesome meals before so i put my trust in them before google users.
Thanks for the info notiger! We were looking at the menu last night and there ...
