Acting was incredible in season 1 and even better in first half of season 2. Then, terrible. Actors can't be blamed. No one could sell that. For instance, the scene where Brody is begging Abu for Carrie's life. That was idiotic. The entire fulcrum of this show is the ambiguity of Damian Lewis performance. When the mask drops and you can see him on screen trying to figure out who he is supposed to be playing, its over.In that circumstance, having Brody killed immediately...
I thought this show was excellent, right up until the point that Brody went home after being turned by the CIA. After that, there were a few exciting scenes but they basically sold out all of the characters to get to those scenes. To the point, where I lost interest. There were things that bothered other people that didn't bother me at all. For instance, Brody was texting to Abu Nazir from the control room where they were watching a kill team get the terrorist in their...
Richardson persuaded Bork to stay as Solicitor General. Had Bork resigned Nixon would have appointed a stooge to replace him. As Acting Attorney General, Bork was in a position to appoint a competent replacement for Cox, Leon Jaworski, who ultimately brought Nixon down. Bork has nothing to be ashamed of, in that regard.
Earl Morrall won w/Colts and backed up Griese for Dolphins. Started more games than Griese in undefeated season.
You called it.He should hide out in Northern Scotland. Watching him do a fake, fake British accent would be cool.
200 million dollar Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is still Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.
Lot of ridiculous behavior this season. A lot could be explained if it turned out that members of the deep state (Estes-F.Murray-rich dude who hosted Brody and others unnamed) were actually running Nazeer, helping him (for some reason) to kill the Vice-President.
Mandy Patinkin always quits TV shows after two years. Wouldn't be surprised to see him leave this one.
I stand corrected. The percentage of Full-time S&E workers who are foreign-born, by occupation with PhD's in 2008from NSF Science & Engineering Indicators All Science and engineering occupattion 39%Computer and mathematical scientists 52%Biological, agricultural, and other life scientists 39%Physical and related scientists 36%Social and related scientists 19%Engineers 56%So abstracting from social "scientists" , probably fair to say 40% Not 50%, but still likely a...
Point. Obviously, I was cartooning but I still think that there is a considerably bigger conservative press that stretches further into the middlebrow and tends to the hacky and boring. Hard to measure, but it seems like there is more than can be explained by the 60 40 split you cite. Maybe it is one of those women read fiction, men read non-fiction; he's reading redstate.com while she's reading 50 Shades of Grey kind of thing.FT is global papal writ, but yeah...
