re: Twin Peaks on Showtime announces May 21 premiere - timbo
I was a huge fan of the original, but man, I am dubious about this. Maybe because David Lynch hasn't done anything great in 10+ years, or the fact that the original series had some of the sexiest women on earth and a couple of them have aged horribly. ...

re: Breaking Bad - Walt was right - timbo
[quote].Was her OD the first real sign that he was really a bad guy willing to do anything[/quote] Yep. He stood there and watched a young woman die without lifting a finger. Then in that same episode, he skipped out being at the birth of his daughter to make his first drug deal with Gus. That's ...

re: So it's all about ratings.. - timbo
We live in a world where the president can't get a consensual blow job from an intern without the whole world finding out about it. And you want me to believe that some guys could rig a game without someone blabbing or Vegas notifying authorities when they saw strange shite happen to the line? Ever...

[quote]Two words: Non-compete clause Jaime Alexander is Sif in both the Marvel films and TV shows (she has appeared in Agents of SHIELD twice now as Sif). Her contract explicitly states that as long as she plays that character she is not to appear in any movie or TV show based off of a DC Co...

re: Wonder Woman rumored to be just as big a mess as BvS - timbo
I think both Nolan and Christian Bale are done, done, done with Batman. And there's no way Superman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the Justice League fit in the Nolan universe. I mean, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, the Flash all could have physically overwhelmed the Joker or Bane in the tim...

re: Wonder Woman rumored to be just as big a mess as BvS - timbo
They just need to put the DC movies on hold until someone who knows their arse from a hole in the ground is involved. Reboot the whole shooting match. And they should have cast Jaimie Alexander or Alexandra Daddario as Wonder Woman. Matter of fact, if I were Jaimie Alexander, I would fire my fricking...

re: U2 Live: How was your experience? - timbo
I saw them at Reliant in 2009. Muse opened up. It was a really solid show. Great sound and lights. They're good musicians and Bono is a hell of a performer. They played a couple of deep album cuts. Not too much from "No Line on the Horizon", which was fine. ...

re: Waiting till April 10th for Better Call Saul Season 3 will be brutal - timbo
[quote] Even better than the first season in my opinion. Rhea Seehorn became a third lead of sorts and was outstanding. The Chuck stuff progressed to a very interesting place. Mike's story, while divergent from Jimmy's almost completely, started to dovetail more and more with Breaking Bad. [/quote]...

[quote]Rasputin had a kickass New Year's Eve party one year. Great music and crowd. One or two other times I went, they still had nice looking crowds. The blood red velvet interior and gold chandelier was more like a bar in Greinwich Village, than a place in Baton Rouge. They had a dress code and di...

re: Biggest restaurant flop(s) in Baton Rouge history? - timbo
It's a Mexican place near a bunch of offices, hotels and a movie theater. That's why it's still open -- business travelers and office types want margaritas. The last time I was there was 6-7 years ago when I had drinks before a movie. ...

re: Memphis BBQ - timbo
Here's my two cents: Charlie Vergos' Rendezvous for ribs, Bar-B-Q Shop for pulled pork and barbecue spaghetti. http://www.tigerdroppings.com/rant/food-and-drink/trip-to-oxford-and-memphis/57081700/...

re: Is Blocking A Site From Providing Escort Ads Unconstitutional? - timbo
I wish people knew what the First Amendment actually meant. A private business deciding not to run ads that promote illegal activity isn't a violation of the First Amendment. Just like the First Amendment doesn't keep Twitter from banning your arse if you post super obnoxious shite and it doesn't keep...
