re: Anthony Bourdain DEAD 61 - TNVolinSpain
One of my favorites for sure. I'm really going to miss his show and his storytelling ability. As many on here have already said, he had my dream job. I don't know if this has been mentioned, but Parts Unknown is leaving Netflix on June 16th for those who want to watch....

re: Just rewatched Amadeus... - TNVolinSpain
Thanks for this. In the middle of my rewatch for the first time in probably 10 years. This is such a great movie. :cheers:...

re: Who here is bilingual? - TNVolinSpain
I learned Spanish while I studied abroad in Spain and Argentina. While living in Argentina, I lived a bunch of Brazilians. I learned Portuguese from them. I spent a year in France for work, so I learned French there. While in Spain, I made plenty of friends from Catalonia. So I picked up on C...

re: Is Rosetta Stone a scam? - TNVolinSpain
DuoLingo is the way to go. It's free too, so that will save you a decent amount of money. I tried to learn Tagalog on the Rosetta Stone years ago. After a while, I decided to try what I learned with my mom. My mom said I sounded too formal and that no one would say that. I speak Spanish and Fren...

re: Tennessee scores dead last on citizenship test - TNVolinSpain
I live in Tennessee and got 10/10. That was a fairly easy test, and I am fairly disappointed in my fellow Tennesseans that couldn't pass that. ...

re: Was Ed Helms the best actor on the office? - TNVolinSpain
[quote]Loved him his first two seasons. He got super annoying though. [/quote] That was intentional. I met the real Jim Halpert once. He told me how Greg Daniels named the character after him since they were best friends. He told me that their other childhood friend was disappointed that he didn'...

re: Narcos season 3 - TNVolinSpain
At first I thought it was my least favorite of all three seasons, but after a rewatch, I think I may like it more than the first two. I thought the acting was good too. It had way better pacing than the second season. The Jorge storyline also kept me intrigued. I just read At the Devil's Table, whic...

re: New season of Narcos drops tonight (Spoilers if you haven't finished season 2) - TNVolinSpain
After watching this season, I went out and bought a book about Jorge Salcedo, called At The Devil’s Table. It’s about his time with the Cali Cartel and joining the DEA. I’m a few chapters in and an excellent read for anyone who wants more insight into the season....

re: New season of Narcos drops tonight (Spoilers if you haven't finished season 2) - TNVolinSpain
Just finished the other day. The quality didn't drop with the fall of Pablo. Awesome season. I felt like Jorge really added an extra dynamic to this season. I think my only grip is they went straight to the end of the Cali Cartel. There was definitely some time between the fall of Escobar and the fa...

re: The Office - Initiation - TNVolinSpain
[quote]an underrated great episode: the party at robert california's house.[/quote] I recently rewatched season 8 for the first time since it first aired on TV. I found it to actually be way better than I remember it. It's not as good as the earlier seasons, but still really good. ...

re: Star Wars/ The Clone Wars - TNVolinSpain
I believe they have. From what I understand, the new book on Ahsoka Tano starts where the Clones Wars was supposed to end and how she survived Order 66 with the help of Rex after they went in pursuit of Darth Maul. This also would explain why Rex wasn't with Anakin as he marched on the Jedi Temple. ...

re: Star Wars: Rebels - Maul vs Kenobi - TNVolinSpain
I at first hated that Maul came back, but ended up loving the stories lines with him. As for the battle between Obi Wan and Maul, I initially hated it, but I'm slowly liking it more and more, especially with all the parallels with their first fight, and Obi Wan adopting Qui Gon's fighting style, an...

re: Narcos season 2 Friday - TNVolinSpain
What a fantastic season! That finale was great. I know a lot of people saying they didn't like episodes 8 and 9 because they were too slow. I honestly enjoyed the change of pace. Can't wait for season 3. Anyone else catch the real Peña and Murphy in the finale?...
