Is this modern German? If so, shouldn't there at least be an attempt to have them speaking some sort of proto-Germanic?

Oh well, there's probably at least some expectations of realism you have to toss out the door if you want to enjoy these shows. Or don't, and prune your watchlist instead to "documentary-first, drama-second" programs.

I had that same thought and actually starting looking up the origins of German after I read it. I get what they're trying to do, I suppose, but it does seem like you'll compound anachronisms.

Received a copyright notice from my ISP. My crime? Downloading Simpsons Season 1-9. I feel like a Metallica fan right now.

I got a notice last year for downloading Warcraft Reforged off a torrent site because BattleNet kept telling me I already downloaded it.

I also rewatched Better Off Ted this weekend and it was just as good as I remembered. Do recommend.

I don't ever torrent anything. So I figured that I could get away with it once without protection. The first time I torrent something in forever I ended up getting torrent AIDS.

Blizzard's pretty draconian it seems when it comes to invading your privacy in the name of their always-online/anti-cheat one-two. I'm surprised all they did was give you a notice. They've shut down accounts for less. Sometimes sent coupons to permabans inviting them back into the fold, for a fee. Lovely.

On a personal note, I got chewed out by a tech support guy once because my account while I was playing Diablo 3 was hijacked and there's no way it could've been them, had to have been me! Later on, oops I guess there was a data breach. Total snobs. All voices matter.

Didn't they also ban people for political views?

Very inflated opinion of themselves, I suppose. But Starcraft 1 and Diablo 2 were better.

The Expanse S6, 8/10
3 really good/great episodes out of 9 so far. One left. Kind of disappointing quality, S5 was expected to be the least going by the books.

Malcolm in the Middle. 8/10
Very consistent show up to S5. Even the worst eps were decent

Scrubs 9/10
It starts great honestly, most shows take a season to get right but I love the first few eps.
The JD/Elliot will they won't they thing is bad imo and the only thing that drags down the first few seasons
I'm only in S5

So at what part of MitM did it become Breaking Bad, or was it merging with Better Call Saul in later seasons.

i forgot i applied to be on a game show some time ago. I had a phone interview with the casting agent today. I have a zoom interview with the casting director on friday. We have to "dress for a nice lunch" (no patterns, well-groomed, no crop tops or revealing clothing, etc) and we (me and my two prospective teammates, who i chose) have to do a little mockup of the game show and answer questions. I'm sure they are way more interested in how our personalities play to a TV audience than the actual substance of our answers, but it should be an interesting exercise, and will get me familiar with the process for my inevitable Jeopardy run in the future.

What game show or type of game show if you don't want to answer the first question?

The question is do I want to beat KEN at Jeopardy or coordinate with him so that BF2s benefits most?

No one has ever beat me and it's not even close. I've been beating my parents and my friend's parents since I was like 10. Not saying it's impossible, but I've been interested in trivia for over 30 years. I was in academic decathlon for a few years in high school, and various quiz bowl type events in grade school.  I rarely lost in bar trivia when we used to play. I'll take me and two of my brothers against pretty much anyone.

I used to do bar trivia at this brewery by my old place, but they shut down. There were around 20 teams that would show up, and our win rate was probably over 90%. We used to battle with another team. Their 8 people against me and my brothers. Fast forward about a year after the last time we played. We are at a new brewery playing. We get to the end, and like a clock they read our team name as winners. I see someone come up to our table and he says, hey, you guys are Delta Delta Delta from Barley Forge! We stopped playing there because of you, and now you're gonna come here and kick our asses!?

The show is still around but they made it more convoluted because I guess it was too easy.

Currently working through every Red Dwarf episode, currently on series 5.

Not sure how I missed it when it was live, I think I caught bits and pieces, must have been too busy being awesome I guess.

Its lightweight low budget BBC, I don't care  notable bit parts so far by Koo Stark and Jane Horrocks.

i'm doing the same but with seinfeld. feels like a glaring omission in my tv-watching history. consuming a quick episode with my bowl of noodles every lunchtime.

pretty much the same sentiments. it's workmanlike and well-crafted but not all that memorable. a few lines here and there. maybe it'll grow on me.

I got Series 1-8 pristine unwatched DVDs for $30, 10-12 for $10 each, just need to find 9 which I know is still available.

It too was a hole I thought should be filled. For some of these things they were good at the time and the anticipation made them the highlight of the week and then watercooler chat, but there's not really a whole lot to them.

The making of DVDs are moderately interesting, I did sets and lighting here and there, sci-fi sets and modelmaking would be fun to do.
Custom weapon design for films is a nice niche.

If I get bored maybe I'll have a stab at some stop-motion animation just for fun - my thumb project is going great, watch this space.

i've always found american sitcoms as bizarre and exotic as bollywood movies or chinese revolutionary operas.

the canned laughter, the extreme tightness and claustrophobia of the cast and set, the now-dated 80s observational humour ... i don't really get it. but i'm trying.
