I'm about to creme myself with all this talk about NYC girls--I can't wait to move there.

According to Spotify, there's a particular song I did listen to 23 times today. I get obsessed betimes. shog[1].gif

Thanks guys. My first grandchild. A beautiful little girl!

Regular birth Douglas.

It was a special time not only because of the birth but also being and feeling so close to my daughter and son in law. My wife was in the room during the birth (I was eating donuts in the waiting room reading GQ). Kind of cool being the first one to call my SIL a "Dad", kissing our daughter and holding the new little munchkin.

Everyone has decided that my role in life is to take her shopping and to be sure she appreciates the finer things in life. Sign me up for that duty and where is the champagne?

That indeed is the role of a grandfather. Save the shotguns and boy terrorizing duty for dad

Agreed. IMO series finals have to be some sort of closure for the viewers and bring the series plot to a reasonable end. Especially in a plot-heavy series, open-- often under the pretense that it's especially clever and thought provokig, which it often isn't (worked for Chuck though, imo, but it's not a plot-heavy series)--, spinoff-inducing endings are unsatisfying. I've had the unique experience to watch three seasons finals in two days (Boston Legal, HIMYM, Psych).

While HIMYM's later seasons lost a bit of quality, I was positively surprised by the finale. Not at all what I expected but it definitely felt complete. The gazillion jumps into the future and back surprisingly worked.

Psych's last season was pretty odd. The final, however, was pretty great and even though it screamed SPINOFF at your face, it still felt as if the storyline had found a reasonable end.

Boston Legal, well, despite the fact that they had to fight to get that last season out there, it was much fun. Over the top final? Maybe. But fun indeed.

Sure, all of those series are of a different format than Dexter. Breaking Bad had a final season that Dexter should've had too. I mean, who didn't want a great showdown between Dexter and the police? No way. Let's introduce a new creator of his code, let's introduce various sideplots that added zilch to the plot (Masuka's daughter; Quinn's relationships; ...), let's pair terrible acting (Harrison.. he's a kid, but still) with terrible directing (the threadmill scene--were they out of their minds?), let's make Dexter's decisions incoherent. And above all, let's shout SPINOFF at the viewers' faces. There's a reason--or rather a multitude of reasons--why a season's final gets 4.9 on IMDB (by 9k votes).

What do you think, @DextersMorgan?

HIMYM finale. I mean, wow. I just watched it last night. I don't want to go all Rambo/Harvey_birdman and call it the shittiest thing ever could definitely make a case for it..

When it comes to series finales, I still believe The Shield pulled it off the best. Breaking Bad and the Wire were serviceable. But yeah, HIMYM. Might be right down there with LOST with how horrible it ended

FWIW, I live next to the city and have a house with a yard.

Regarding HIMYM... you could be smart, avoid shitty TV and not watch it and have a vastly better life.

I never wanted Dexter to work in a police dept.


I wanted him to perhaps head security of some mega gambling joint.


I did not want MCH(michael C. Hall).   My original thought was to choose Jim Carrey as he fits my persona more closely.


Deb Morgan was based on my sister.   I showed my sister picture to Jeff Lindsay and thus the reason he picked Jennifer Carpenter.

Why can't one listen to jazz anywhere?
post #41399 of 58252
Because Conn is a pussy.

If the show had ended 5 seasons earlier, I honestly believe the finale would've been a lot more effective. Damn Britney for putting the show on the map
