The island back story interested me more than the current day story. I have no idea what went on back then yet but hopefully they'll keep filling in parts.
I didn't care for any of the current day Oliver story lines in this episode. I let out a mental "Child, please" when Laurel said that she and Oliver can never be together again. She wants it. He wants it. Writers, please skip the endless episodes of angst.
Apparently, Starling City looks just like Philadelphia. That was Center City Philadelphia whenever they showed the aerial view of Starling City's skyline. I could see the office building I worked in for 20 years.
the 2 parter with the sisters was interesting from the perspective of WTF kind of people are there in this world?
you can diss a customer from the kitchen all you want but to go in front of them and press their food and tell them it's warm and how did it warm up between the table and the kitchen is soooo rude! what kind of environment were these girls raised in? they probably fought over every little thing and had parents that constantly bickered too and the last word was most important
the chicken on the floor was pretty good..if gordo really wanted to nip it in the bud he would have taken the pan and put it in the sink or something but instead he left it on the stove for tv effect
as a somewhat irrelevant aside, there were times the skinny sister looked very good and other times she looked like a zombie..the cameras really do play tricks lol
and i loved the guy that pretended to be the boss or the manager..but seems like the girls played along with it sometimes ...they definitely had no chops to try to discipline anyone, just bitch about them.
that one waitress that wound up quitting seemed like she could be supernasty..intentionally sabotaging poor menu choices being chosen was pretty transparent.
It looks like we've gone back and forth with a season thread vs episode thread so I'm starting a Season thread but we can always change if people want.
I like the start of this season with the judges picking who goes.
Was sad not to see any Padma though!
now THAT was a funny episode....several lol moments for me. :up:
I am constantly getting V301 errors when I attempt to access various streaming applications such as Hulu+, Netflix, xFinity, Amazon etc, etc.
If I spend 2-3 minutes accessing the stream application (ie 50+ times) the Tivo Preimiere will finally connect, but it requires determination on my part to sit there selecting the stream application until there is a successful connection.
I have two Tivo S3, a Rulu XS, and a PC; when accessing the same stream applications (ie Netflix) I do not have any problems, thus its not a problem with my local network. I have been using these stream applications for several years without getting errors. It is only the TiVo Preimere that is currently failing.
Like some other folks, I had problems with my FIOS CableCARD. It was
activated, but not paired with my TiVo. So channels which are copy
protected wouldn't display.
Today I found a customer service rep who was willing to do as I
suggested. He did a "CableCARD reload", and almost instantly
everything was fixed. I just thought I'd pass this along. This was
mentioned here (http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...ad#post9233875
which is why I suggested it to VZ in the first place.
Your mileage may vary.
What is considered to be the normal menu navigation speed for Hulu Plus on TiVo?
When I attempt to use Hulu Plus, the menu nagivation is very very slow and tends to buffer commands, thus it is easy to mis-select menu items unless I go very slow, waiting for the screen to refresh to make sure the command buffer is clear. Basicly, I need to wait about 1-2 seconds between commands, otherwise I end up on a screen I do not want.
Other applications such as Netflix and xFinity have acceptible menu\navigation performance (not great, but acceptable).
Also, I have a Ruku XS device, and the Hulu menu performance is acceptable.
I've noticed in the first few episodes of the season that there's more meaning behind the imagery and placement of the actors' names than there were in the opening used in season 1 and 2. I decided to do an analysis and thought it would be fun as its own thread.
Expect spoilers through the currently aired episode, but please try to refrain from future spoilers or comics spoilers, or spoiler tag them.
Here goes! Hopefully I don't just talk to myself and you don't just make fun of me for analyzing the credits.
Abandonded cars on a country road. Evokes the traffic jam from season 2, as well as the abandoning of the farm at the end of the season. Everything is in disarry. Things are going off the rails - cars in the distance off the side of the road.
Andrew Lincoln (Rick)
A newspaper blows away to reveal the sheriff's deputy badge underneath. Rick has hidden or put aside his roots as a lawman - but they are still there below the surface. Could foreshadow his return to those roots - or at the very least that he will again stand on the side of good and righteousness against the Governor.
Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori) and then quickly
Laurie Holden (Andrea)
There is a centipede of some kind crawling over what looks like shell casings. The shell casings foreshadow Lori's death and could indicate that Andrea will need to fight or is in danger as well. Their names do not share the screen at the same time, but the same image is used for both of them.
Norman Reedus (Daryl)
Arrows - duh! Daryl's primary weapon is a crossbow. But, it is not just one arrow, it is two arrows. That could signify the return of Meryl, or it could foreshadow a relationship for Daryl, perhaps with Carol which they've been flirting with since the end of season 2. Generally, it just seems to indicate that Daryl is no longer alone.
Quick fade to a house, looks like the farmhouse from season 2. No names, immediately fades to the next scene.
Steven Yeun (Glenn)
This is a pocket watch with the clock moving very quickly. I can't remember where the pocket watch came from - was it Dale's? I do remember it being important to Glenn. Time on the watch is moving fast, which shows how Glenn is developing, from a kid who took risks into a man who has responsibilities a relationship, and perhaps now, a family.
Lauren Cohan (Maggie)
A graveyard. Maggie lost much of her family last season, and I wouldn't be surprised if she loses the rest of it this season. Hershel's already down a limb!
Chandler Riggs (Carl)
Flowers in focus in the foreground change to an abandoned house in focus in the background. I believe the flowers were the ones that represented Sophia and so represent Carl's childhood, lovely, happy, good, playing with other children, going to school. But Carl has had to grow up fast and is now better represented by the building. He is cold, hard, and alone. His mother is now dead and his father is as cold and hard as he is. Carl the child has been abandoned, just like the house.
Danai Gurira (Michonne)
The bottom of a closed door. There is darkness on the near side of the door and light on the far side. We can see shadows moving. This represents both Michonne's hidden strength - she is staying cool and calm, biding her time before attacking - as well as her ability to see the hidden danger in the Governor's town.
Michael Rooker (Merle)
Close up of an eye, looks as thought it is a black man. The eye is bloodshot and is looking away, blinks and then the camera changes and the eye is seen closer. Merle is looking out for his best interests. He is also one that needs to be closely watched because of that. He is also seeking his brother - looking for him. There could be something around T-Dog, since the eye is from a black man, and T-Dog was the reason Merle was left on the roof in season 1, but that's more of a stretch.
Brief shots of the interior of a house. Abandoned, in disarry. The camera moves quickly through a kitchen/dining room towards some windows.
David Morrissey (the Governor)
The Governor is darkness (the disarry of the kitchen/dining area) and light (the windows with the shining sunlight and the fluttering curtains). There is some hope and good he has created with his town, but it is surrounded by darkness and if light shone on those parts of the house (the town), the mess would be seen by all.
Now we are in an hallway of a house, facing the front door. The door is open with sun shining in. The camera moves quickly out the door and shows the middle of the woods. Various shots of the prison, abandonded towns, tattered flag as the producers and creator credits are given.
The Walking Dead
The Tivo and Guide button on the remote, and on the Series 3 box does not work. I would rule out any strange remote / interference / channel / code /1-2 switch issues since the buttons on the S3 don't work. The rest of the buttons, pause, whatever do work.
Power cycling usually works, but not always. It happens often enough that it is beginning to piss off the rest of my family and me.
So, I revived my old Lifetime Series2 540 by swapping out a drive from an unused box. After a 2 hour clear and delete, everything is setup again, BUT the remote address. There are two TiVos upstairs-- different rooms, but still. I have diligently followed the instructions to set the revived TiVo's remote to "2", but the box *keeps* reverting to "0"!! No other remote is being used in the same room-- the doors are even closed to the room during the setup. I tried fresh batteries as well as a different peanut remote. Same result. (I am not trying to use the same remote with the two boxes.)
I one thing I was thinking was an OS bug? The box is running 8.x, I think that is behind, even for a Series2. (I assume an update will arrive in time.) Could there be an old bug lingering there?
I really want to get this sorted as the room with DVR "1" normally has the adjoining door open and I don't want it to interfere with "2".
I guess I know who Jeff voted for President. :D
Amazes me how a person who by his own admission made $60 million in baseball can be so money hungry.
We are never getting our brother bond back at this rate.
Not that I blame Sam for finally standing up to Dean, he was right. Dean has been non stop. But I still don't get the not looking for him thing!! Is that really all we are getting on that? He felt like his world imploded and he ran? Really show? I might have bought that had this been the first time he's had to deal with Dean being missing/dead/gone/whatever. But he should never have expected that this time was the final time. Why? Why would he ever? Not the Sam I've watched for 7 seasons. Argh. This is frustrating me to death.
That sequence with the Soundgarden song was really cool.
I'm still so so on Amelia but I don't hate her.
Garth killed the tooth fairy! Why Garth, why?
I like that he's the new Bobby but I really miss the real Bobby.
I'm new to Tivo. I have a Premiere Q unit from my cable company. I'm also a DirecTV subscriber and so I'm accustom to their HR dvrs. That being said Sunday night during The Walking Dead and Dexter I had a power failure that lasted only a few minutes. After the power came back on the Tivo started up and resumed recording as did the HR21. However, the HR21 also re-recorded the two shows later that night as they were listed as partial recordings. The Tivo did no such thing. Is this normal for the Tivo? Thanks.
I just started using my Tivo (Premier) after several months of inactivity.
It said it needed to do a guided setup, which I did.
Now there is no program info for many channels.
These are not premium or HD channels. Major network channels like NBC are not there. Just for example, without naming each network, I'm missing channels 2, 6, 13, 19, 25 and so on. I have 5, 15, 17 23, etc. This pattern of missing channels goes all the way up through the list.
I can see this by going to search by time and channel. The "missing" channels show up with just the channel number and no program info.
In addition, some channels don't even appear in the list like 3, 4, 7-13, etc.
These are ALL checked in the channel list.
I'm on Comcast, Boca Raton/Delray Beach, FL.
Find the concept of a sadistic nun terrifying? Then this may not be the show for you. For those of you who like a good scare, prepare to be spooked out all fall with season two of the wildly popular horror-drama American Horror Story. The FX hit was created and produced by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk who are also the minds behind Glee. The show is an anthology so each season is set up like a mini-series that follows different characters and locations. The first season is set in present Continue Reading
What are the differences between TiVoGlo remotes models C00210 & C00212?
Both are available on Amazon, but the 210 is about $13 more, which seems odd since I assume 212 is newer.
I found a review where someone said the 212 "feels cheaper" and had some "button changes", but the writer did not go into more detail.
And will either work equally well with a Series 3?
Edit: Never mind, I found the close-up images on WeaKnees.
As there's no thread for last Friday's show, I'll assume there's not enough interest for a per-episode thread, so this can cover all aired episodes.
I thought the Mitchell Model's mustache was the most fake I've ever seen. How he fooled anyone with it, I'll never know. I wasn't surprised that he got called out in the CT store.
The biggest surprise was the generosity in giving $250,000 tax paid to the last girl along with a promotion giving her a $14k raise! I have to admit that I'm not sure this was in line with others and I thought it was more of a publicity stunt than a genuine attempt to help. I know she was living in a homeless shelter with three kids, but there are better ways to help her than to give her what amounts to a small lottery win.
I thought this was a pretty good episode.
Juice is making a lot of stupid mistakes.
At first I couldn't figure out why they were even taking a van, but then I realized it was to take the body.
Hi guys, I get this error quite a lot and it can be a pain to start the download again. Has anyone else experienced this?
Also, I'm not clear if downloads continue to run in the background while the iPhone is either locked or if I switch to a different app or just the home screen. It seems to me that the download stops when either of these things occur. Anyway to fix this?
