ConfusedIn my opinion, probably the most disturbing 2-part show I've seen on T.V. (for maybe the umpteenth time) - Criminal Minds, "The Longest Night", which starred Tim Curry as 'Billy Flynn - The Prince of Darkness', an old serial killer. The show started at the end of Season 5 and picked up to start Season 6. 
This is a mentally-cruel story, only one Curry could pull off correctly - especially his last lines (below) as he talks of his own mother. As much as I always have a hard time watching this story, I absolutely love it, however MissyDWolf doesn't like this one so much; brings back too much of the past. She is an absolute master when dealing with mental deviates, both by nature and (as with both of us) by professional training.
Particularly ultra-violent, it could readily have been made into an 'R'-rated movie.
~~~
the infamous 'final exchange'
~~~
Morgan: It's over Flynn.
Billy: Five years ago, I would've just killed you right there in that bedroom.
Morgan: You couldn't.
Billy: Couldn't?
Morgan: I'm not afraid of you.
Billy: You really think that matters that much to me?
Morgan: Then shoot me. Go ahead. Shot me. You can't do it. I studied guys like you for a living I know more about you than you know about yourself.
Billy: Well you may not be afraid, but they are.
Morgan: You point that gun at them and I will kill you, and that is another promise.
Billy: My mother used to dance with me. You know who Cyd Charisse was? She kinda looked like her.
Morgan: Put the gun down and get up.
Billy: When I shot her, she looked at me with such, she was, I think relieved. I think I helped her escape. Was that really true or, or did I just imagine it, to make killing her easier to live with? Did I help her escape? Did I, set her free?
Morgan: Is that what you think you've been doing all these years? Helping people
Billy: Well no I suppose not. Do you believe in Heaven?
Morgan: This is your last chance.
Billy: Do you think I might see her there? Maybe get a second chance? I'd really like that.
<Morgan ensures Billy then gets his wish to go meet Mommy in style>

"American Gangster" episode about Chaz Williams - '50 Cent's' promotor and all-around bad guy - starring none other than Chaz Williams telling the world how he made a few youthful mistakes, but other than that, he's a shining example for today's youfs...Confused

(note: the Feds have him up for about 60 sort-of slightly-unsolved bank robberies, but, well...he didn't do 'em, doncha know, except when he needed to 'meet his needs' for family & friends, and, well, the gov't was blowing away the 'Black Panthers', anyway - so why NOT play 'Robbing Hood'? ...)

Smile...currently watching 'Cash Cowboys' (the Canadian version of 'American Pickers').
 
This show is just a lot of fun, but these 'pickers' just don't get anywhere near as dirty as the Americans. They also never spend anywhere near as much money, yet snatch stuff just as good.
The places they go - the scenery, the findings - are great.
The fact one of the 'Pickers' has one of my 'bad habits' (always shopping for the most atrocious, crappy, cheap gift available for a loved one), always gives me new ideas.
A lot of the old signs they buy tend to have been shot, more than likely by accident (imagine, way back when it occurred - "...ohhhh! This is a GUN!...").
The Calgary accents are a real hoot, too.

LOLSTILL watching 'Cash Cowboys'. This Canadian-version of 'American Pickers' is SO MUCH better than 'American Pickers'; not only are they picking neat and odd items ANYONE can afford, they also run across some that simply will drop you from your chair (and these two are awfully funny, to boot!).
I'm still beside myself after they were in Winnipeg and found an ornately-framed large color photo of Elvis, near 'The End of Days'.
Elvis is wearing a shiny, turquois suit and appears about 300 pounds - and it is REALLY him.
They found it in a flea market.
There was a huge argument about 'Fat Elvis' that was so damned funny that I was in tears and even had to leave a call. I was on. 
Wouldn't you know they find a 'Pee Wee Herman' treasure and decide to explain to the common viewers how popular Pee Wee was before he got caught in a "very unfortunate situation in a movie theater"... and listening to Scott Cousin's CowTex-Calgary accent explain this was simply hilarious.
Some things are just plain and straight funny...and a lot of things are simply amazing. You get a lot of both way up in the GWN.

Wink...although we are poles apart philosophically, I've always loved what Rick Steves gives the public, professionally. His is the genuine 'dream job', and, well - there is almost nothing I ever disagree with and even more I always give him a huge thumbs up for advising the potential tourist.
Now - he kicked off his career right after we left Europe; to this day, his shows ALWAYS make my heart ache to go back (which happens now and then) every stinkin' time I watch - and I don't care how.
PBS has a 'Rick Steves' Europe Travel Skills' marathon on, right now...

Maybe it's because I had the good fortune of being raised by a hearing impaired mother, but I've never had any issue with subtitles, be it for a foreign-language or native-language. It's not distracting, and I think oftentimes it aids getting more involved in the movie.

At the very least I like to use it as a failsafe. I can listen certainly, but if a line comes up I can't understand, or a strange word, It's easy to glance up, read the subtitles, and go, "ah, that's what they said."

Considering how many people have posted on forums making whole discussions, theories, etc. on misheard phrases, I think this is at least one good use for subtitles.

Finished Time of the Doctor...it was brilliant. The regeneration was excellent, and the farewell a fitting tribute to eleven without being disgustingly sappy, over the top, and destructive like....a previous someone...

Watching the Christmas special for Australian show, "Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries" now.

EDIT: Finished MFMM's "Murder Under The Mistletoe" Equally brilliant, and I'll definitely be watching the rest of the show (Two series to watch). It includes a very clever use of the "12 nights of Christmas" and a few familiar faces to our BBC viewers here.

Then, it was Citizen Khan's "A Khan Christmas" Which was, well, lovely. I like the show, and the Christmas Special did well at making fun of Christmas, making you sympathise with Mr. Khan as he suffers trying to make the impossible work, and in the end it's satisfying without being too smarmy...the end is incredible.

I think I'll just get in the Hebburn special to-night, and then do Midsomer, Mrs. Brown's, and Midwife to-morrow, along with the Boxing Day specials, like "A Gangsta Christmas".

The other night I watched the entire set of "The Fall," which was a little over 5 hours. It is a terrific show but the ending was kind of irritating. Anyone who lusts after Gillian Anderson should watch these. I had an old boyfriend who was a big fan of hers and I bet he has watched this many times

The story of the HMHS Britannic - sister ship of the Titanic. Sunk in 1916, after hitting a mine, only 30 lives were lost and those were out of stupid panic when 3 lifeboats full of people dropped into the water (without the Captain's approval) and got sucked into a giant exposed, fully operational propeller. Yea - like leaving the top off the blender.
One lady actually jumped out of a lifeboat and was uninjured.

^  As a matter of fact, there was a news item last night about a ship currently trapped in ice off Antarctica.  The guy Skyping from the ship didn't sound the least bit worried, though.

Watched Marley and Me on FX last night.  The true story (based on the book) chronicles the life of a dog from the day a couple adopts him, to the day he dies.  Sweet.  Jennifer Aniston starred.  Sweet, also.

^ Yea - Russan ship with LOTS of supplies and probably plenty of vodka.
They're making friends with penguins.
The Chinese have sent an icebreaker to free it, but nobody is in a hurry....

Maybe there's something about Antarctica that brings out the fun.  Might actually be the alcohol.  I know a woman who works down there half the year as a science writer and fitness instructor.  She has all sorts of funny stories about the people she works with and the stuff that goes on.  She hates going back down there year after year, but she adjusts pretty quickly.  She says it's like going back to school following summer vacation.

I understand there is a bar in Antarctica where the women drink for free if they will donate their bras. Supposed to be loads of fun.

The ratio of men to women down there is pretty high, but Karen says it's gotten a bit more equal over the years she's been there.  However, she admitted to liking it more when there were fewer women.  She said it was more sexist but more fun.

From an article about the base where she's stationed.

There are bars on McMurdo - Nicholas Johnson. author of The Big Dead Place, describes "a party where someone took a big block of ice and carved little 'ski trails' in it down which kamikazes were poured into the eager mouths of those wearing ski goggles and those holding ski poles. This was called Liquor Mountain. Women gave prizes to any man who showed up wearing a dress, so there was much cross-dressing. Myself, I wore a nasty leopard print number, with the nipples cut out, drank one too many kamikazes, and barfed up corn dogs in the snow".

Wow.  I see Karen's had a peak named after her.

Sushi Girl is on one of the Encore channels.
Bad language, violence, torture.  The nude woman is getting ready to sever the finger of the man who crossed her.   At least it's commercial free.

Hours ago I was scanning the program guide. 
Mama is home today [recovering] and feeling better so I said..."Which old movie,  Titanic  or  Alien?"
She said Alien, The 3rd in the series just started IFC.
We have an hour to kill till the game starts.  Watch out Mr. & Mrs. CW.
It's going to be a cold, dark night in the windy city.

Are you sure you're not watching the porn version entitled The Penist?

You'll know it's that one when he stands in front of the piano keyboard & starts playing "Chopsticks" with both hands at his sides.

Yes, his films are known for their exceptional length, throbbing tension, swollen drama & turgid plots that usually culminate in explosive eruptions.

Cigarette, anyone?

That is a creepy and lurid description but I kinda like it.
Thankfully the little woman will be home soon to wash all these dirty thoughts from my mind, but not the smile from my face.

Didn't really like LTiH.

Watched a little & found it kinda boring.

New Downton Abbey series starts tonight, though!!!

Woo hoo!!!

Sadly my "PBS buddy" on Facebook messaging is up in W.Va. with her husband visiting his family.

No internet where they are, so no FB messaging during the show. :-(

Will watch a Doc Martin rerun till DA comes on at 9.

I enjoyed the Christmas special, so I'm going to at least give LTiH a chance. Plus, Derek Jacobi is in it.

The Bourne Identity for about the 100th time. I just love they car chase scenes in this movie. I also think Damon was the best actor for this role even though he might not have seemed so at first.

^ The Bourne movies are one of those I will watch again if I can't find something new.
I just saw   Christine   for the first time, all the way through.
I am giving   Law and Order   a chance now.
I missed alot of good movies and shows when I was out chasing women and behaving badly.

I'm actually inclined to agree with you. I mean, in an over the top action movie like The Expendables, you want over the top actors like Stallone and Schwarzenegger. But for a movie where the lead is meant to be a badass that appears non-threatening and blends in, Damon works perfectly.

As for me, I don't post on the PC when I'm watching something, so I can't really answer this thread properly. I might have one of the Law & Order shows on in the background, but nothing I'm actually watching if I'm posting here.
