    What Irish said. There has been so much awareness about the way right wing extremists and Nazis put emphasis on communicating through symbols that are far from obvious that when you see it it is not a coincidence.

    I'm delighted to see Scrubs on your list. I don't know why that show gets hate. It's quick paced, witty and enjoyable.
    It had a great ending then went on like two more seasons. Still, hilarious show. Wife and I went through it with both newborns lol

    I really have no empathy for someone going in for a Buddhist Swastika and expecting a Buddhist reaction.

    I dare you to go to your tattooist and tell them you want a "Buddhist swastika" in a visible place. See what they say.
    You're not wrong. The tattoo artists I work with don't even tattoo the back of hands if the clients are unaware of their consequences.

    If all that shit on twitter is true, fuck that guy.

    Yet another Netflix product no one wanted!

    Meanwhile they cancel successful shows because they don't continue growing, even if they're the top show on thr service.

    Netflix is the bane of film as art.
    I know writers who use subtext and they're all cowards.

    Ever think MLB/NFL/NBA/NHL could form together a streaming package that would revolutionize sports and completely cut out ESPN/Networks? I'm sure there's billions and billions of reasons why they wouldn't do that, but how much would you reasonably pay to have all four of those sports on a streaming service, navigate at your own will, and have other programming?

    Maybe an insane partnership with ESPN/ABC (which is Disney, right?) would be the only possible way of that happening.

    Hey Phil, I couldn't help but notice that you seem to be watching The Shield for the first time, which is one of my favorite shows of all time; what do you think about it so far? Remember, it really starts kicking things up a notch in Season 4!

    Clancy Brown will be the villain in Dexter's new season

    He'll play Kurt Caldwell, the unofficial mayor of the small town of Iron Lake. Here's the show's official description of him. "He realized the American dream by going from driving big rigs, just like his father did, to now owning several trucks and the local truck stop. Powerful, generous, loved by everyone — he’s a true man of the people. If he’s got your back, consider yourself blessed. But should you cross Kurt, or hurt anyone that he cares for, God help you..."

    Sorry for not answering before, hadn't seen this post.

    Anyway, I was thoroughly impressed. While, as you said, is in season 4 when it begins to really run at full steam (and holy hit, that last season), the first three seasons are still electric and captivating from the get go, which shows one of the show's main strengths: it's consistency. The Shield is one of those rare shows I can recall that don't have a single bad episode, let alone season and to boot, had it's very best season last and had probably the best final episode I've seen; it was also very consistent with it's characterizations, I mean, even if the characters changed (and they changed a lot), none of their actions ever really felt forced, they always felt in character. And visually speaking, it had one of the best uses of the guerrilla style of filmmaking, both for how it fit Farmington's setting and how it was staged: it was never confused and didn't feel gimmicky.

    And thematically, like The Wire, it's one of those shows that feel more and more relevant with the passing of the years. Among our merry band of corrupt cops I found Shane specially interesting since I felt he was the most reflecting of the kind of policemen we've seen in the news: violent, short-tempered, racist and with a bit of a God complex.

    So, anyway, fantastic show. I'm actually surprised it's not on the public discourse the same way as shows like Breaking Bad, The Wire and Mad Men are, it's on that stratosphere.

    Oh yeah; one of the biggest strengths of that show is definitely how consistent the characterizations are, both in and outside of the core of the Strike Team; Vic is the bold, scruple-less leader, Shane is the reckless loose cannon, Acevada's fundamentally ethical nature keeps butting up against his overriding political ambitions whenever the latter is threatened, etc. It did a great job of making sure everyone stayed true to the core of their characters, regardless of how much their circumstances or their relations with others changed around them, and it is a shame that its reputation was never as high as the elites of the Golden Age Of TV, since its ratings weren't too great after it had been on for a while, but it's still one of the greatest shows I've ever seen anyway, as far as I'm concerned.

    Are folks still watching Cobra Kai? Just finished season 3. There are so many shifting allegiances that it's becoming a bit absurd. One guy breaks another's arm, then they're friends again as if all the other stuff never happened. Suddenly, hottest babe in school is making out with biggest nerd, but it's phony as hell. And the most ridiculous thing is that all that crap just bounces off my nostalgia deflection shield as if it doesn't matter one bit. It's just disarmingly entertaining. Roll on season 4!!
