      7 hours of my life, vanished.

  2. Thank God NBC cancelled The Paul Reiser Show, that was some of the worst shit I've ever seen.

  3. Thank God the Star Wars people are smart and got Michael Arndt on board. I was hoping they got Pixar involved with the story.

      Will be really interesting to see who they put into the director's chair. Doubt that JJ will get to be the man behind this generation's Trek AND Star Wars. But who knows?

      It's a shame that Peter Jackson is busy and Spielberg has ruled himself out.


      They're the ideal candidates, in my opinion.

    3. aphid47


      There is so much baggage attached that the only real choice would be David Lynch.

  4. Thanks for the Justified Scripts!

    1. TheTypeBMBA


      Best show on television.

  5. Thanks to netflix, I just watched Rambo for the first time. Pretty fun film, can't believe I've never seen it.

    1. adlocke


      that movie was a bad mammy jammy in its day.

    2. aphid47


      Which ever the first film is ... probably first blood.

    3. Escapist


      First Blood is terrific. The rest get sillier and sillier.

  6. That new Chris Carter show After over on Amazon was reallllllly hard to sit through.

    1. Nic.Lishko


      With the exception of Patrelli, the acting was unbearable.

    2. Escapist

    3. aphid47

  8. The trailer for Fury looks pretty damn good in my opinion.

    1. benskelly2


      Looks like Pitt is embracing his age and could have his best years ahead of him.

  9. Trance was sumptiously shot, but story wise, was a huge fucking mess.

    1. aphid47


      I understand the story, I just didn't buy it.

    2. SeeriousTimes


      movie had a lot to sell and i'm poor.

    3. aphid47


      I'm not sure it had a lot to sell, it just wanted you to think it did.

  10. We'd been talking about it in chat, but here it is ... the TB Writers Group https://groups.google.com/forum/#!pendingmember/tb-writers-group/apply

    1. admin


      Great idea guys! I'm sure the TB guys will want to be included. I'd be sure to email them at [email protected] so they can get in.

    2. aphid47


      Sent the invite ;)

  11. What are the best competitions for original television pilots besides AFF?

  12. what are the chances of The Chicago Code getting renewed? Love the show, just heard rumblings that it's underperforming in Fox's eyes.

    1. tbblue


      I will cry if this gets cancelled.

    2. typistolero


      Ditto. (My money is it takes the midseason replacement slot, but who knows with the football situation.)

  13. what did people think of Game of Thrones?

    1. cardney


      Books were amazing. So far I'm not disappointed!

    2. mikeyP_73


      It's great - I think they sexed it up big time to appease the True Blood, Fantasy, Fan Boy loving audience it's meant for. The women I spoke to who watched it said it did objectify women - but hey, it's the dark/middle ages right? ;-p

    3. naugehyde


      ehn. a mile wide, an inch deep. maybe i was spoiled by DEADWOOD, ROME, and the SOPRANOS or maybe it just needs time (like those shows did).

  14. Who do I have to bribe to get my hands on the Hobgoblin pilot.

  15. who was it that was going to write an article about self publishing and when can I expect to read it?

    1. mebishop2001


      It was me. I'll get to it one of these days.

    2. joe_gillis


      Once I find a publisher for the article, I'll send you a link.

  16. Why does my wife's family eat such fucking terrible food for Christmas!!!! WTF?

    1. Nic8767


      Yikes! In my Mom's house everything is done from scratch. I surprised we all don't gain fifteen pounds after the holidays.

      Jib go grab CHEF from Redbox and maybe after seeing it they'll change the menu next year.

    3. aphid47


      Opine, no amount of butter and sugar can make a potato tortilla taste good. I grabbed Chinese food after their crap feast to make up for it.

  17. Will be attending a Black Swan screening in Austin today, I can't wait. I'll let you know what I think about it tomorrow.

    1. Bodhi1701


      I read the script and didn't care for it. BUT it's bound to be visually interesting.

    2. Cyber Hater

      Cyber Hater

      it's deffff visually ggod. CAA peeps said so

    3. aphid47


      It was pretty amazing actually. made my wife cry like a baby, but then again she was a dance instructor, so has an attachment to the story. I thought it built up really well, and had a great unsentimental ending. Reminded me of Rupulsion in many ways.

  18. Wow, Moonrise Kingdom bored me to tears. I can't be the only one, right?

    1. Hasmap


      Me neither. I really hated Royal Tenebaums when I watched it all those years ago. I simply do understand the acclaim it got. But I have to admit, I was a really big fan The Fantastic Mr. Fox and though he adapted it impressively.

    2. ... who are those guys?

      ... who are those guys?

      With the exception of Steve Zisou and Darjeeling, I'm a huge fan. I just saw Moonrise last night and I loved it. Having said that I can understand how someone could easily tire of his style. If it doesn't work for you from the start, it ain't gonna get any better.

    3. benskelly2


      I'm a huge WA fan and I have to admit I thought the pacing was particularly, almost perversely glacial. But it has wonderful moments and comes together in the end, I think.
