re: San Junipero - is it Elysium or Gehenna? (SPOILERS) - Baloo
And again, to echo Dawg's thoughts here, not only is in NOT heaven or hell, if it is anything, it is BOTH. The function of free will is that we can choose to make our eternity heaven or hell, even when it is the same place. Or, as I argued previously, Purgatory. The exercise of free will allows ...

re: San Junipero - is it Elysium or Gehenna? (SPOILERS) - Baloo
Great episode, great questions. Let's do this. [quote]Question #1: What was the point of Quagmire, the hellish club outside of San Junipero? Why would dying or dead people choose to go to a danceclub version of Hell? Different strokes, different folks? Did you notice that the deeper Yorkie walke...

re: We Need To Talk About Cartoon Parents - Baloo
Merida is proven wrong. That's sort of the point of the film. she takes responsibility for her actions and stops blaming others. It is her tearful confession that "mends the bond" to thwart the curse. Brave actually is one of the very best depiction of parent-child relations. Each party learns a...

re: Can we talk about the Dallas Mavericks? - Baloo
Also, as a transplant to Dallas and not a native of the city, I've got nothing against the Spurs. I wish y'all success. The Rockets, however, can get bent. Because Houston sucks....

re: Can we talk about the Dallas Mavericks? - Baloo
Honestly, I'm glad they kept trying to make the playoffs instead of going full tank. I know tanking is "smarter" when it comes to winning titles, but that's ignoring there is value to simply making the playoffs and playing enjoyable basketball. I've enjoyed the twilight of Dirk's career as Carlisle ...

re: If you could pick one series - Baloo
I wanna say The Wire, but it actually works better on repeated viewings, as you pick up more detail. The first time, you're sort of overwhelmed. So I'll say BSG. Buffy was a great answer. ...

re: Luke cage - Baloo
I think the OP's interpretation of the show completely falls apart when you try and account for the fact that the show's secondary hero, Misty Knight, is a cop. Furthermore, while the show does indulge in the standard trope that cops are on the take from the major crime bosses, that is not even remo...

re: Spotify X-mas Playlist: A Very Tigerdroppings Christmas - Baw to the World! - Baloo
Thanks. Fairytale of New York was recently voted by the viewers of the BBC as the greatest pop music Christmas song. It's a regular in my rotation, along with Christmas Wrapping, which was already on your list. I'm surprised I'm the first to bring up Father Christmas though. ...

re: Leeds and Rangers - Baloo
You need Leeds on that wall. Everyone hates the Whites, but everyone misses the team you love to hate. Leeds had a miserable August but has looked great since then. I know how this story ends because... Leeds fan. But I'm going to enjoy this season and its brief return of hope. But this team is ...

re: What is the consensus on Brad Pitt's acting skills? - Baloo
I think he's a fantastic character actor who has been cursed with movie star good looks, so he can't fade into a scene like a character actor can. Good for the bank account, though. But I love how he throws himself into roles. ...

re: Did Dottie Hinson drop the ball on purpose? - Baloo
I am a youngest sibling, but I've also seen a movie before and know how foreshadowing works: of course she dropped the ball on purpose. That's why the scene in the beginning in which Geena Davis instructs the two kids on how to play is there. The older brother is told to let the younger one score a ...
