    I can't believe they're only doing 8 episodes of Succession this season and they haven't even filmed it yet. I thought it would be coming out soon, very disappointing.

    That guy.... I read all of the books after watching the first season and before the second season came out. I don't believe this book will ever come out.

    Btw if he can't get it finished under lockdown then wtf!

    He needs 2 more books to finish anyways. He will likely be dead before that happens. Sucks that the shitty HBO ending is likely the only closure the story will ever see.

    exactly and honestly he probably needs at least 3 more books to finish but I'd be shocked if we see another one.

    NY Post - He inadvertently spilled the beans on the iconic scene. “The Sopranos” creator David Chase accidentally spoiled the infamously cryptic series finale during a leaked interview for “The Sopranos Sessions,” his upcoming book celebrating he Emmy-winning HBO mob drama, reports the Independent. Spoiler alert: In the roundtable discussion, co-author Alan Sepinwall asked Chase, “When you said there was an end point, you don’t mean Tony at Holsten’s [the diner], you just meant, ‘I think I have two more years’ worth of stories left in me.’ ” Then, Chase, 74, dropped the bombshell: “Yes, I think I had that death scene around two years before the end … But we didn’t do that.” Noticing his epic leak, co-author Matt Zoller Seitz chimed in: “You realize, of course, that you just referred to that as a death scene.” “F*ck you guys,” replied Chase upon realizing his blunder.

    I am sure you’ve seen it, but there is an amazing shot by shot breakdown of that scene out there that really makes clear what happened.

    I HATED that ending more than I can explain. But I gotta say, looking back all these years later, it’s actually ballsy as hell, and kind of cool that he dared to do that. It was the ultimate “characters point of view” moment.

    Has there ever been a better sitcom than the Larry Sanders Show?

    Can't believe they haven't released it on blu-ray.

    I know it's there, although I don't subscribe to it right now because I have so many other streaming services at the moment.

    I have the full series on DVD, but the picture quality is pretty brutal. Just surprised they haven't released a blu ray.

    So for the NBA 2k people... apparently they got rid of the neighborhood in 2k21, leading people to speculate that the parks are coming back...

    Rivet City for life, baby!:)

    I saw where they are no longer calling it the neighborhood but I haven't read they are taking the idea away.

    Whelp, okay, we went at it.

    Best of three.

    First game was a nail biter... went back and forth, as Jimbo missed a few open shots and I bulled through him on a few. But eventually his speed with the ball allowed him to get past me, and a few good defensive plays burnt me, as he stripped me twice on spins. Final score was around Jimbo 21-14?

    Second game, I just leaned the shoulder in and went with a lot less finesse. Pushed him down and beat him up; even when the D was good, he was too small. Ball went back and forth a few times quick with some good D. Got on fire, and final score was around TheDude, 21-6?

    Third game was more of the same. I just beat him down, hitting a few pretty spins and dunks and got on fire. Again, TheDude, 21-5. Here is game point.



    So... yeah.

    The main point we can take away from this is that, you have to be pretty bad to be 7'3 and lose to a guy whos 6'5 :)

    Or that you have to be pretty bad to be able to score buckets that are worth 150% as much as the other guy's and literally dribble AROUND him too and STILL lose by a combined score of something like 56-32 ;)

    Don't encourage him.

    About 3 episodes in on the Epstein doc on Netflix. So crazy how he was able to get away with raping middle and high schoolers practically in plain sight. $$$

    Any The Last of Us folks going in for part 2 today? I am still working on part 1 after all these years. Such a good ****ing game, the new one looks amazing and features an amazing musician as well.

    New York Times had a front page, full page glowing review of the game in one of their sections.

    Most of the " bad " I hear is from a bunch of snowflake cry babies honestly. Opinions I trust have all said its a 10/10. Going to grind my way through it this weekend and will let you know.
