re: ER - all seasons - now streaming on Hulu - Baloo
I think people forget just how great the first 3-4 seasons were. I'll submit Love's Labors Lost as one of the greatest episodes of any TV show. And with a not yet famous Bradley Whitford as the dad... ...

re: 2017-18 NHL Season Long Thread - Baloo
Goal with 1.5 seconds left! Beagle! The greatest dog in the world! Wooooo!!! The Caps won a game in regulation in which they took a defensive zone faceoff with 10 seconds left in the game. Thats not supposed to happen. And of all the players to pot the GWG... Beags!!!...

re: Ross Tucker: Joe Gibbs is the GOAT, he won Super Bowls with three different non-HOF QBs - Baloo
You are on an LSU board and didn't list Jim Taylor as one of the best fullbacks of all time. You know, the guy who led the NFL in rushing the ONE season Jim Brown didn't do it when he was active? You should be banned just for that transgression. Jim Taylor was a boss. ...

re: 5 of the 8 teams remaining have never won a SB - Baloo
The Vikings are f'n cursed. their history is one of constantly being good to great, only to lose in usually the most agonizing fashion possible. If you're a neutral fan and NOT cheering for Minnesota, you have no soul. They had a stretch in the 70s in which they won at least 10 games in SEVEN of ...

re: Ross Tucker: Joe Gibbs is the GOAT, he won Super Bowls with three different non-HOF QBs - Baloo
[quote]Joe Gibbs and the Redskins Qb's definitely benefited from some dominant offensive lines. The Hogs.[/quote] This is also why its absurd Joe Jacoby isn't the Hall of Fame. If you made a list of the worst QB's to win the Super Bowl, all three of Gibbs' QB's would rank in the bottom half o...

re: Let the " Three Billboards" backlash commence.. - Baloo
There's been a steady backlash in film geek circles against Three Billboards for quite some time, it's just now getting a wider hearing. And it centers, of course, on the redemptive arc of Sam Rockwell. However, I think this sadly misunderstands the film's point. First off, no one is all good or ...

re: Tampa Bay Lightning - Baloo
The Lightning are great organization, and the scary thing is most of the team is locked up on team-friendly contracts, and their minors system is one of the best in hockey. They are going to get BETTER. Kucherov and Stamkos are going to split each other's votes and make a Hart win almost impossi...

re: 2017-18 NHL Season Long Thread - Baloo
Caps are on a five-game winning streak (nine games at home), have a 4-point lead in the division with a game in hand, and the Caps blogs are all in complete meltdown. I'm saying we've seen this movie before, and with better teams. The hockey gods are trying to set us up for even more crushing di...

re: It's clear... Dunkirk is fricked this award season... - Baloo
Nolan has done fairly well in the Directorial awards in the regional awards running up to the Oscars. The big tell will be the DGA's, which come out in February. winner there will be a huge favorite. It's a good 4-way race between Nolan, Peele, Gerwig, and del Toro. Based on the Globes, McDonagh ...

re: Appreciation thread: Mystery Men - Baloo
I think it is funnier now than upon release because superheroes weren't quite as mainstream then. Now, they are everywhere, so a town full of superheroes and wannabes makes the satire really hit with modern ears. And superpowers like I can turn invisible, but only if no one is looking is just ge...

re: 2017-18 NHL Season Long Thread - Baloo
The Blackhawks put Cody Franson on waivers. He's a right handed shot veteran D-man who makes about $1 million on a one year deal. He also is still pretty good at his job. Pretty much any team that doesn't put a claim in for him is incompetent, not actively contending, or is in contract/cap hell....

re: The Top 50 Most Critically Acclaimed Movies of 2017 - Baloo
I'm kinda amazed anyone can look at that list of films and call it prententious. It's a pretty good mix of everything, to be honest. You've got blockbusters, prestige indies, and even low budget horror/action. I like a list with room for Wonder Woman, BPM, and Brawl in Cell Block 99. Or Thor, K...

re: How in the world did I miss out on Whiplash - Baloo
It's the Paper Chase for music school kids. And I mean that as compliment. It will be quoted in music classes among band nerds for generations. But the final scene is wonderfully tense. What a payoff. ...

re: Black Mirror Season 4 (NO SPOILERS) - Baloo
Not quite as good as Season 3, nut I do agree it was an extremely consistent season with no real bad episodes. There's not a Waldo Moment. Black Museum is a bit of a grand unified theory of BLACK MIRROR which, to be honest, I didn't need, but I know plenty do. If you like Easter eggs, this is you...

re: Bernie (Jack Black movie) - Baloo
Disagree. Outside of the BEFORE trilogy, I think this is the best Linklater film. I think it is flat out genius, and i love how the town is essentially a Greek chorus which totally supports Bernie. I love this film to death. No pun intended....

Devils and the Caps, playing for first place in the Metro, just like we all predicted. It didn't make much of a difference in the game, but the Caps last goal was scored with 7 men on the ice. I know it's my team, and I appreciate the freebie, but I do want basic officiating competence. ...
