    Re: Things that annoy me

    Airport abbreviations that make it impossible to determine what city they are associated with. For example, BNA is Nashville. MDT is Harrisburg.

    Re: What are the Forum members reading

    I saw in the press today that Andrea Camilleri has passed away at 93. He is a famous Italian author best known for his Montalbano series. Anyone who likes lighter detective fiction with a lot of...

    Re: Hurricane Barry...

    I've never minded the cold too much so long as it's not windy. The wind can be absolutely brutal though. In terms of heat, humidity is a beast. I have relatives down south and summer can be...

    Re: Classic Sci-Fi on TCM tonight

    A really great spoof on the old sci fi movies is a film called "The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra." It has the bad dialogue, stereotyped characters, bad special effects and so forth. Hilarious. It came...

    Re: 2019 Baseball season

    I wonder if fans have to buy tickets for both games in a double header or do they clear the stadium after the first game? That would be murder to sit through both games. Particularly after a 19-2...

    Re: 2019 Baseball season

    The Dodgers beat the Phillies 16-2 last night. I wonder how many days it took to complete that game? They are now 4-0 against Philly this season outscoring them 34-8. The should have some type of...

    It feels more and more like this might be the Dodger's year. Things seem to be breaking their way most nights. They are playing with a lot of confidence. Young guys and veterans are all playing...

    Re: N.F.L. Season 2018-19

    I can't see it happening for all the reason you noted. It would be a joke. The TV ratings have been sinking as it is. Imagine what happens when the scrubs are playing and the stars are on the...

    Those Hammer films were great with Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing. They had some memorable leading ladies as well. Lots of violence and cleavage. They sometimes talk about violence in movies...

    Re: Classic Sci-Fi on TCM tonight

    I'm not sure if it is classified as science fiction but I always liked "Them" with the giant ants and great music. John Carpenter's remake of "The Thing" was an underappreciated film. In fact, that...

    Is it Forbidden Planet where they have the space girl in some racy outfits? They really knew how to sell tickets in those days.

    Those are some great ones that I can watch over and over again. It makes me laugh though to see how politically incorrect some of these older movies are by modern standards. They usually have one...

    Re: Fear The Walking Dead

    The only good I can say about this season is that they addressed some of the stray characters and story lines from TWD. One of those improbable TV coincidences that people could randomly run into...

    Some wild fights at the Cubs-White Sox game. The most excitement that I've seen in the stands this year. Given the brutal heat and beer, I'm surprised this doesn't happen more often. I saw several...

    The Dodgers somehow won a game last night by getting five straight walks with two outs in the 9th. I've never heard of that before.

    The flopping drives me absolutely crazy. And why always grab your knee? If they are going to fake an injury, then diversify. I can't get into a sport where games can end in a 0-0 tie. What that...
