    Oh, I must have had it confused -- Emmys are given for the most BORING shows!

    My mistake...

    :rolleyes:

    You already know this but another thing is that the guy is a retired major. Normally that means he would have a standard retirement at 20 years. That retirement never goes away. You can't lose it.

    And to elaborate on your point, if you retired for reasons of disability not time you can't lose that either.

    Stupid. Almost as dumb as the idea that anyone would be left alone in AF1 long enough to have sex in the conference room.

    And if the coverage came from being retired military, it's TRICARE, not VA, and your family gets the coverage regardless of how disabled you are.

    I just wanted to throw something at the TV.

    Yeah, sure, a sponge brick is fine. A real brick, not so much. :p

    Couldn't agree more. It did set up the best intentionally funny line of the episode though - "wanna go again?"

    No, you're mistaken again. Emmys are given for "quality", or the "best" acting or overall show.

    Best != most interesting.

    Not that I think the WW is the best by a long show---I don't often agree with the Emmy voters. My whole point was that you gave your opinion of WW vs. CiC as though you believed it was a fact. I just hope you realize that it's not.

    Small nitpick from someone who has done work in visual effects... When we first see the bad guy looking at Air Force One, we see the reflection of the plane in his sunglasses. You can clearly read the lettering on the side of the plane. If we were indeed looking at a reflection, wouldn't the lettering be reversed? Why do these people have jobs and I am unemployed?
