The Big Bang Theory 5/16/13 "The Bon Voyage Reaction"

Thu, 05/16/2013 - 20:50
Kind of a middling BBT episode, IMO. And as season finales go, well, not much of one, IMO.

But they FINALLY cured Raj of his affliction. And great! Not much more to say about that.

Kinda don't care about Leonard and Penny for some reason.

Arrow - S01E23 - "Sacrifice" 05/15/2013

Thu, 05/16/2013 - 19:29
I'm amused by that fact that both Arrow and Supernatural had season finales titled "Sacrifice".

However, Oliver Queen, you have failed this city.

To be fair, I didn't see the second device coming either but Malcolm has been one step ahead for a while now so it's not a total stretch.

It looked to me like the second device didn't destroy all of the Glades but maybe half of it?
(Certainly the Arrow Lair was intact.)

Tommy, Tommy, Tommy. Well, I didn't see that death coming. And it was set up well.
I really enjoyed Colin Donnell's acting this episode for not only his death scene but his reaction to Malcolm playing his mother's voicemail.

And Diggle to the rescue!
I was a tad concerned that they might off Diggle when you consider how they seem to be playing up Roy (and it's also amusing that on last week's episode of Blue Bloods, David Ramsey's character Spoiler: was shot and possibly crippled .)

Also nice to see Quinten be a hero too and I thought his goodbye to Laurel was heartfelt as well.

With all that was going on, it would have been easy to miss Oliver's first kill back on the island was Fyers.

So what happens next season?
Rebuilding?

iPhone App Support

Thu, 05/16/2013 - 12:08
Has anyone been able to get v3.0 of the Tivo iPhone/iPad app to work with the minis?

After upgrading they no longer appear in the Select DVR list.

I followed these instructions http://www.iphonefaq.org/archives/971543 to go back to the previous version of the app, and can now control them again from my iPhone.

American Idol Finale - 5/15 & 5/16/2013

Thu, 05/16/2013 - 10:54
Surprised there is no thread for the 2013 finale...

What did everyone think of last night's performances?

I am about to hit the road and deal with the commute, but thought I would start the thread to get the ball rolling and check out the comments (and chime in) later...

What did you think of the Carly Rae Jepson song from the Coke influence?

Tivo Premiere won't let me scan,or restart

Thu, 05/16/2013 - 09:27
I recently bought a used Tivo Premiere,which I haven't activated yet.One reason being I'm waiting for Zap2it to update its TV Guide for my area -which I've been told,could take awhile,but,it will get done.Our lone analog channel flastcut to digital today,so,now the listings are out again...

So...

2 things I notice:

1)If I try to restart,I press 3 thumbs down,enter,then nothing happens,except the boom,boom,boom audio effect. lol

2)I tried to scan for digital channels,but,same as above.

Is this because I haven't activated the Tivo box?

Fortunately,I can dial in the NEW 12.1 channel direct and watch it.

Too bad there isn't a way to just add one channel,but,I have the same problem with my Sony Bravia TV,you have to do a new 'scan' for digital channels,yet with my parents Toshiba,you just have to dial it in and if it's there,it'll lock it in.

On another note:

I can sign up at tivo.com/activate ,right,have to commit for 1 year and,then,if I want to cancel,I have to phone the 877 number,correct?

Modern Family | "Games People Play" | 2013-05-15

Thu, 05/16/2013 - 07:49
So-so episode for me.

Luke's quote after falling out of the RV bathroom was the highlight for me :)

No inter-family scenes that I remember...

shark tank 5 10 13

Thu, 05/16/2013 - 07:15
wow the burger chicks were hard headed. why not take the money for more trucks then use those profits for the restaurant? they admitted this wasnt enough for the restaurant so it did seem like flailing a bit

i had the same reaction as mark when the movie was pitched. i thought it would be about racing bikes around a track like you can race cars at speedways now. plop down some money and get to ride like the pros

i thougth the photobooth was a bit silly and the guys were toooo slick. i didnt understand where all the props come from? do you buy them? no way could u rent as people will jsut steal them. i didnt catch the price of the photo array? they all did look funny in the outfits, esp the pimps

i think robert missed the mark on the bike one. there's a group of parents out there willing to spend to get their kids every leg up and while i wouldnt invest, she had some decent number

Supernatural - Sacrifice" - 5/15/13 *Season Finale*

Thu, 05/16/2013 - 05:08
I have so many feelings. That's FOUR brother hugs this season! FOUR!!!!!
Spoiler:
And that scene with Sam and Dean was one of the most powerful brother moments of the series. Sam's greatest sin is always letting Dean down. Dean telling Sam that nothing and nobody, past or present will ever come before his little brother. I just..... don't even look at me. I'm not crying like a baby right now.

I have to admit. I was pretty fearful of the whole Cas falling thing. I figured they would break continuity with Anna to do it and I wasn't going to like it. This though, this I can accept. I still don't love they are going in this direction with Cas because he's now just a "baby in a trenchcoat" and what the hell is he going to do next season? Just tag along with the boys? He's pretty useless like this. And I love badass Cas so much. I guess I'll just have to look forward to him getting his grace back at some point.

And hats off to everyone's acting this episode. Jared especially. That was emmy worthy. Mark Sheppard knocked it out of the park as well. I'm curious what happens with Crowley now that they didn't finish. Will he stay at this in between good/bad or will he eventually go back to his old evil self? I enjoyed his snark so I kinda hope the latter.

Jody lived! Thought when I heard she was making a guest spot they'd just kill her off too! I am bummed about Alaina. Abaddon survived but I don't see how she could ever go back into that meat suit again. And she was good, SO GOOD in that role. Maybe my favorite demon next to Crowley.

I'm not sure what else I have to say. Next season with no angels and all the demons still roaming should be very interesting.

Thoughts??

TiVo Desktop Plus no longer finds TiVo Premiere

Wed, 05/15/2013 - 19:53
My Tivo Desktop Plus application has always found my Tivo Premiere. It can no longer find it when I try to transfer recorded material.

It is connected with a Tivo wireless adapter. I have tried re-seating the adapter and it connects to the internet, so I know that it is working on my network, but it is still not seen by the Tivo Desktop Plus application.

Any suggestions?

Cheers,
Bob.

Premiere Q vs XL4

Wed, 05/15/2013 - 17:55
Was looking to pickup a used XL4 and instead found a Q for sale. Can't find any definitive explanation of the Q vs the XL4. They appear to be similar. Are they the same? If not, what are the differences? I know that it's an MSO offering and it was available before the XL4 Are these boxes the property of the MSO and only available for lease, or is this a legitimate end-user sale? Any issues with buying it and adding on a lifetime subscription? Thanks.

Thumbs Up / Green for Constructive Posts

Wed, 05/15/2013 - 16:35
Can we implement a feature where for every post we can give it a thumbs up or down, or green or red, like they do in other forums and display a net popularity score?

It would encourage more constructive posts, discourage "troll" or unconstructive replies, and give readers an idea as to what the forum readership thinks of each post.

KMTTG on OSX -> Custom Command help

Wed, 05/15/2013 - 15:13
Looking for guidance / help.

KMTTG on OSX and looking to have the file once processed as an AppleTV, ComSkip, MetaData put into iTunes. Encoder Out files have their own directory.

I played with using Automator to do this by moving any new files to
iTunes\ iTunes Media\Automatically Add to iTunes
where the file would autoload into iTunes Library. Issue is that the metadata file is put there first, before download/decrypt/comskip/encoding, and that file (the Metadata) is moved too quickly, and Automic Parsley does not have it to run at the end. --- I Could try to 'copy' the files, but would have a double storage need until I clean up the encoded files.

I then tried to write a shell script to move the file. The following in a text file named move-it.sh in the same directory as kmttg jar file;

Quote: mv -f "$1" /Volumes/Raid5-upper/iTunes/iTunes\ Media/Automatically\ Add\ to\ iTunes/ did the chmod +x move-it.sh

then on the Programs Tab of the Configuration of kmttg I put
Quote: move-it.sh [encodeFile] it did not work :confused:

So, does anyone have a working solution that moves the completed (post metatag) file to another directory?

Sometimes Records Wrong Channel

Wed, 05/15/2013 - 13:58
I Have A Motorola Cable Box From Comcast. Connects To A Series 2 TIVO Via A Serial Control Cable.
Problem: Lately The TIVO Occasionally Records Either 1 Channel Above Or Below The Desired Channel.
I've Checked The Cable & It's Properly Seated. I've Powered Off Of Cable Box And TIVO And Cycled Them. The Problem Persists, But It's Random.

Any Suggestions Appreciated.

Actors/Characters other people have a crush on that YOU don't get

Carried over from the other thread -

I do not now nor have I ever understood the Ryan Gosling love. He can act, and I appreciate that someone who can actually act is getting so much work. But the drooling baffles me.

For Goodness sake, GET RID OF THE ANNOYING AUTO SLEEP!!!

Wed, 05/15/2013 - 08:41
I dont know why this function isnt getting the proper criticism it deserves. Am I the only one who finds the auto shut off feature of the Mini, one of the worst ideas Tivo has ever come up with? For the life of me I cannot figure out ANY reasoning why Tivo included this useless feature.

20 Hit Series Return

CBS unveiled today its new 2013-2014 schedule, featuring eight new series - five comedies and three dramas - to build on the strength of America's top-rated network. Five of the new series will premiere in the fall and three at mid-season.

CBS will finish the current season as the top-rated network in viewers for the 10th time in 11 seasons, #1 in the adults 25-54 demographic and #1 in adults 18-49 for the first time since the 1991-1992 season.

For next fall, the Network is increasing its comedy lineup with four new comedies, expanding its comedy block on Thursdays from 8:00-10:00 PM and creating an encore hour for comedy broadcasts on Saturdays.

The new comedies are THE CRAZY ONES, a single-camera comedy from executive producer David E. Kelley starring Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar; THE MILLERS, a multi-generational family comedy from executive producer Greg Garcia starring Will Arnett, Margo Martindale, Beau Bridges and JB Smoove; MOM, an edgy family comedy from executive producer Chuck Lorre starring Anna Faris and Allison Janney; and WE ARE MEN, an ensemble single-camera comedy starring Tony Shalhoub, Kal Penn, Chris Smith and Jerry O'Connell.

Two new dramas have been scheduled for Mondays at 10:00 PM. HOSTAGES, the serialized suspense thriller from executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer starring Toni Collette and Dylan McDermott, premieres in the fall, building to a season finale in January. Soon after, INTELLIGENCE, a high-octane action drama starring Josh Holloway, Marg Helgenberger and Meghan Ory, moves into the time period for the remainder of the season.

The freshman series will be joined by 20 returning shows including NCIS, the season's most watched show; THE BIG BANG THEORY, the season's #1 comedy in viewers and demos; 60 MINUTES, the season's #1 news magazine; and ELEMENTARY, the season's #1 new drama.

The other returning series include: HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, 2 BROKE GIRLS, NCIS: LOS ANGELES, PERSON OF INTEREST, SURVIVOR, CRIMINAL MINDS, CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION, TWO AND A HALF MEN, UNDERCOVER BOSS, HAWAII FIVE-0, BLUE BLOODS, 48 HOURS, THE AMAZING RACE, THE GOOD WIFE and THE MENTALIST.

In addition, the proven hit returning comedy MIKE & MOLLY, starring Academy Award nominee Melissa McCarthy and Billy Gardell; the new steamy legal drama RECKLESS; and the new romantic comedy FRIENDS WITH BETTER LIVES are set for mid-season.

The new 2013-2014 schedule is:

On Monday, the veteran comedy HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER begins its climatic final season at 8:00 PM, providing a strong lead-in for the new single-camera ensemble comedy WE ARE MEN at 8:30 PM. The top-rated comedy of the night, 2 BROKE GIRLS, is at 9:00 PM, seamlessly leading into the new Chuck Lorre comedy MOM at 9:30 PM. At 10:00 PM, HOSTAGES will launch in the fall, building to a season finale in January. Soon after, INTELLIGENCE will take over the time period for the season.

On Tuesdays, CBS makes a key scheduling move at 10:00 PM, creating a powerhouse lineup in which the three top-rated dramas on television now air on the same night. The most-watched series on television, NCIS, returns at 8:00 PM, followed by the #2-rated drama NCIS: LOS ANGELES at 9:00 PM. The #3-rated drama and fastest-growing series, PERSON OF INTEREST, caps the night at 10:00 PM.

On Wednesday, CBS's strong lineup returns with the popular reality series SURVIVOR kicking off the night at 8:00 PM. The highest-rated drama of the night, CRIMINAL MINDS, returns at 9:00 PM, followed by the time-period-winning CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION at 10:00 PM.

On Thursday, CBS is expanding its comedy lineup from 8:00-10:00 PM. The #1-rated comedy, THE BIG BANG THEORY, returns at 8:00 PM, giving a powerful lead-in to the new Will Arnett comedy THE MILLERS. THE CRAZY ONES, featuring the return to series television of the legendary Robin Williams, opens the new comedy hour at 9:00 PM, followed by the return of the #2-rated comedy on TV, TWO AND A HALF MEN, at 9:30 PM. The #1-rated new drama, ELEMENTARY, caps the night at 10:00 PM.

On Friday, CBS moves an established drama to the middle of the lineup to strengthen a winning night. At 8:00 PM, the Emmy Award-winning and time period leader UNDERCOVER BOSS returns. The popular drama HAWAII FIVE-0 establishes a new beachhead at 9:00 PM, leading perfectly into BLUE BLOODS, the top-rated series of the night, at 10:00 PM.

On Saturdays, CBS has another hour of comedy. COMEDYTIME will feature encore broadcasts of the Network's hit comedies at 8:00 PM, followed by the popular CRIMETIME programming at 9:00 PM, and the night's top-rated broadcast 48 HOURS at 10:00 PM.

On Sunday, CBS's critically acclaimed lineup returns intact with the top-rated, award-winning news magazine 60 MINUTES at 7:00 PM, followed by Emmy Award winner THE AMAZING RACE at 8:00 PM, the critical favorite THE GOOD WIFE at 9:00 PM and THE MENTALIST at 10:00 PM.

The Comedies:

WE ARE MEN is a single-camera comedy about four single guys living in a short-term apartment complex who unexpectedly find camaraderie over their many missteps in love. Carter (Chris Smith), the youngest and most recent addition to the group, moved in after being ditched at the altar mid-ceremony, and is now eager to re-enter the dating scene and get on with his life with some guidance from his "band of brothers": Frank Russo (Golden Globe and multiple Emmy Award winner Tony Shalhoub), a successful middle-aged clothing manufacturer and four-time divorcée who still fancies himself a ladies man; Gil Bartis (Kal Penn), a small business owner who was caught having the world's worst affair; and Stuart Strickland (Jerry O'Connell), a speedo-wearing OB/GYN who's hiding his assets until his second divorce is settled. Jill (Rebecca Breeds) is Frank's charming and attractive daughter, who stands as the one positive remnant from his failed relationships. Armed with a hot tub, pool-side barbeque and plenty of questionable advice, these losers in the marriage department take Carter under their wing to impart their own brand of wisdom about the opposite sex. Emmy Award winner Rob Greenberg, Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum are executive producers for CBS Television Studios. Rob Greenberg directed the pilot.

MOM is a comedy from executive producer Chuck Lorre starring Anna Faris as a newly sober single mom raising two children in a world full of temptations and pitfalls, and multiple Emmy Award winner Allison Janney as her critical, estranged mother. Christy (Faris) is a waitress at a posh Napa Valley establishment who is four months clean and doing her best to be a good mom and overcome a history of questionable choices. Her sobriety is tested when Bonnie (Janney), her recovering alcoholic mom, reappears chock-full of passive-aggressive insights into Christy's many mistakes. Bonnie joins Christy's already complicated circle of relationships: her handsome, married boss - and lover - Gabriel (Nate Corddry); the restaurant's hot-tempered chef, Rudy (French Stewart); her pretty, 16-going-on-25-year-old daughter, Violet (Sadie Calvano); her sweet but overly honest son, Roscoe (Blake Garrett Rosenthal); her irresponsible ex-husband and Roscoe's father, Baxter (Matt Jones); and Violet's clueless boyfriend, Luke (Spencer Daniels). Christy tries to remain positive as she pursues her new path in life, but she faces an uphill battle, surrounded by a dubious support system - and a copious amount of dysfunction. Chuck Lorre and Eddie Gorodetsky ("Two and a Half Men" and "The Big Bang Theory") are executive producers for Chuck Lorre Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. Pamela Fryman directed the pilot. Gemma Baker co-wrote the pilot with Lorre and Gorodetsky.

THE MILLERS stars Will Arnett as Nathan Miller, a recently divorced local roving news reporter looking forward to living the singles' life until his parents' marital problems unexpectedly derail his plans. After Nathan finally breaks the news of his divorce to his parents, Carol (Emmy Award winner Margo Martindale) and Tom (Emmy Award winner Beau Bridges), his father is inspired to follow suit and stuns the family when he leaves his wife of 43 years. Already in shock, Jack is even more aghast when his meddlesome mom decides to move in with him. Meanwhile, his absent-minded dad imposes upon Nathan's sister, Debbie, her husband Adam and their daughter Mykayla (Eve Moon). Nathan's best friend and news cameraman, Ray (JB Smoove), was excited to be Nathan's wingman in the dating scene, but Carol manages to even cramp his style. Now, as Nathan and his sister settle in with their truly impossible parents, they both wonder just how long the aggravating adjustment period is going to last. Greg Garcia ("Raising Hope" and "My Name is Earl") is the executive producer of THE MILLERS for CBS Television Studios. Emmy Award winner James Burrows directed the pilot.

Academy Award winner Robin Williams returns to series television in THE CRAZY ONES, a single-camera workplace comedy about a larger-than-life advertising genius whose unorthodox methods and unpredictable behavior would get him fired... if he weren't the boss. Simon Roberts (Williams) is the head of a powerful agency, with the biggest clients and brands in the world, but even more important to him is that his daughter Sydney (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is by his side. As his partner, Sydney is Simon's exact opposite - focused, organized and eager to make a name for herself, but also too busy parenting her father, which she'd resent if he wasn't so brilliant at what he does. Joining them in the firm are the dashing and talented Zach (James Wolk); art director Andrew (Hamish Linklater), who's as hard-working as he is neurotic; and the beautiful and deceptively smart assistant Lauren (Amanda Setton). With his team and his daughter behind him, Simon continues to set the advertising world on fire, and it looks like they are definitely buying what these crazy ones are selling. Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner David E. Kelley ("Ally McBeal" and "The Practice"), Bill D'Elia, Emmy Award winner Jason Winer ("Modern Family"), Dean Lorey, John Montgomery and Mark Teitelbaum are executive producers for Twentieth Century Fox Television. Jason Winer directed the pilot.

The Drama:

HOSTAGES, from executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer, is a high-octane suspense drama starring Emmy Award winner Toni Collette as a premiere surgeon thrust into a chilling political conspiracy when her family is taken hostage by rogue FBI Agent Duncan Carlisle (Dylan McDermott). Dr. Ellen Sanders (Collette) and her family are held captive in their home by Carlisle, a desperate man doing the wrong thing for the right reasons, who orders her to assassinate the President (James Naughton) when she operates on him. His highly skilled accomplices include his brother-in-law Kramer (Rhys Coiro), whose loyalty to Carlisle will be tested; quick-tempered and intimidating Archer (Billy Brown), an ex-military man with a razor-sharp tongue; and the only woman involved, Sandrine (Sandrine Holt), a mysterious last-minute replacement to the team. With her family's life in peril, Ellen faces an incomprehensible moral dilemma in order to save her overbearing husband Brian (Tate Donovan), her secretive daughter Morgan (Quinn Shephard) and her not-so-innocent son Jake (Mateus Ward). In this high-stakes standoff between Ellen and Carlisle, fraught with tremendous national and personal consequences, the choices between right and wrong become even more blurred. Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, Jeffrey Nachmanoff, Rick Eid, Omri Givon, Rotem Shamir and Chayim Sharir are executive producers for Jerry Bruckheimer Television in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Mid-Season:

INTELLIGENCE is a dramatic thriller starring Josh Holloway as a high-tech intelligence operative enhanced with a super-computer microchip in his brain. With this implant, Gabriel (Holloway) is the first human ever to be connected directly into the worldwide information grid and have complete access to Internet, WiFi, telephone and satellite data. He can hack into any data center and access key intel in the fight to protect the United States from its enemies. Leading the elite government cyber-security agency created to support him is Director Lillian Strand (Marg Helgenberger), a straightforward and efficient boss who oversees the unit's missions. Strand assigns Riley Neal (Meghan Ory), a Secret Service agent, to protect Gabriel from outside threats, as well as from his appetite for reckless, unpredictable behavior and disregard for protocol. Other skilled members of the Cybercom team include Chris Jameson (Michael Rady) and Gonzalo "Gonzo" Rodriguez (James Martinez), two resourceful federal investigators. The brains behind the design of the chip is Dr. Shenendoah Cassidy (John Billingsley), whose son, Nelson (PJ Byrne), is jealous of Gabriel's prominent place in his father's life. As the first supercomputer with a beating heart, Gabriel is the most valuable piece of technology the country has ever created and is the U.S.'s secret weapon. Michael Seitzman, René Echevarria, Tripp Vinson, and David Semel (for pilot) are executive producers for ABC Television Studios in association with CBS Television Studios.

RECKLESS is a sultry legal drama set in Charleston, S.C., where a gorgeous Yankee litigator and a charming Southern attorney must hide their intense mutual attraction as a police sex scandal threatens to tear the city apart. Jamie Sawyer (Anna Wood) is enviously cool, confident and armed with south-side-of-Chicago street-smarts as she takes on the good ol' boys in the South. Her handsome courtroom rival, Roy Rayder (Cam Gigandet), a divorced father of two, embodies the Old South and is the newly minted City Attorney, thanks to his influential former father-in-law, Dec Fortnum (Gregory Harrison). When disgraced cop Lee Anne Marcus (Georgina Haig) hires Jamie to represent her in a lawsuit against the police department, Jamie and Roy discover that Lee Anne is at the epicenter of a sinister case with dire implications for the members of the Charleston P.D. Heading that department is Deputy Chief Holland Knox (Michael Gladis), a family man who radiates integrity. Working under him are Terry McCandless (Shawn Hatosy), a cocky and corrupt detective, and Preston Cruz (Adam Rodriguez), Jamie's well-respected boyfriend who might not be all that he appears. Helping Jamie is her confidante and paralegal, Vi (Kim Wayans), an expert at digging up case-winning information. As Jamie and Roy spar in and out of the courtroom, dark secrets simmer behind every door and threaten to tarnish the genteel facade of seductive Charleston. Ian Sander, Kim Moses, Dana Stevens, Corey Miller and Catherine Hardwicke are executive producers for CBS Television Studios. Catherine Hardwicke ("Twilight") directed the pilot.

FRIENDS WITH BETTER LIVES is a romantic comedy about six friends at different stages in their lives - married, divorced, newly engaged and single - who are outwardly happy, but secretly questioning if their friends have it better. Andi (Majandra Delfino) and Bobby (Kevin Connolly) are happily married with two kids but at times long for the days they had less responsibility and more fun; Will (James Van Der Beek) is newly single and preaching the bachelor lifestyle, but still pining for his ex-wife; Jules (Brooklyn Decker) and Lowell (Rick Donald) are high on their passionate new relationship; and Kate (Zoe Lister Jones) has a successful career but may take a swan dive into the L.A. River when she finds out her last remaining single friend, Jules, just got engaged. When it comes to relationships, these six friends are finding it a challenge to look at each other without wondering... who really has the better life? Dana Klein and Aaron Kaplan are executive producers for Twentieth Century Fox Television. Emmy Award winner James Burrows directed the pilot.

I notice that Debra Messing's pilot (called "Mother's Day" at one point) is not on the schedule (note "Mom" is a different series).

I also notice that there does not seem to be any provision for modifying the schedule (other than moving all of the shows up at least 30 minutes) on CBS's NFL doubleheader days.

This showed up in my ToDo list this week (I can't remember the date). I'm not a fan of police procedurals usually, but for some strange reason, I like this one. Glad it's back again. Use this thread for season discussion (or not, if you want to go week to week)
