07/14/2018 - 3:31pm Absolutely, and Stringer is…

Absolutely, and Stringer is too far down his list as it is.  

The Wire is the show I consider to be #1, and Stringer Bell is the deepest, most interesting and multifaceted character I’ve ever seen.  He’s easily my #1 character.

I don’t have the time to parse between #6-#25, and I’m sure I’d miss too many to  have a list that truly reflects my actual feelings, so here’s my top 5 (confirmed regency bias):

1.  Stringer Bell (The Wire)

2.  Bobby Axelrod/Chuck Rhoades/Wendy Rhoades (Billions)

These 3 are lumped together because the entire show rests on the interplay of these characters, and it is awesome, truly the best show on TV right now

3.  Walter White/Heisenberg (Breaking Bad)

The devolution of the white bread punching bag to drug manufacturing kingpin is intriguing, but the true revelation is when you rewatch the series and realize Walter never changed at all, rather he allowed himself to be who he really was the entire time.

4.  Lester Freamon (The Wire)

Under used and under appreciated.  Steals every scene he’s in.  The wizened elder who knows how it all plays out, but let’s the young pups learn on their own.

5.  Dr Perry Cox (Scrubs)

Really should be the entire Scubs cast, but John C McGinley has the hardest job being both a good guy father figure and an anti hero who pushed everyone away to make them prove they loved him.  For a comedic role, the depth and range of emotion this role showed pushes it as high as possible.

My top 25 would probably be all The Wire, Scrubs, and Billions characters with a sprinkling of Breaking Bad thrown in.

I said Lost, but since there is now no semblance of order to the comment section...but the last season knocked it down from potentially #1 to all the way down to an iffy #5 for me

Shows that I’d want to be a part of are completely different than the GOAT shows on TV.

 

GOAT shows on TV:

1.  The Wire

2.  Breaking Bad

3.  Billions

4.  Battlestar Galactica (Sci-Fi Channel reboot)

5.  Lost (I know, I know...)

 

GOAT shows I’d want to be a part of:

1.  Friends

2.  Seinfeld

3.  Malcom in the Middle

4.  Scrubs

5.  Silicon Valley

07/04/2018 - 10:09am Oh my goodness, you want to…

Oh my goodness, you want to be a part of The Wire and The Sopranos?  Are you a psychotic maniac or just have a death wish?  Great shows though

06/26/2018 - 12:24pm I understand where you're…

I understand where you're coming from...the fun part, I think, is when you participate in the discord discussions and then when you see the results and there are a ton of new UM territories.  I don't think the discord discussions (or the reddit threads) are near as much fun as my safe UM echo chamber here on MGoBlog, but that might just be me.

06/25/2018 - 10:20am I’m with OP here...the first…

I’m with OP here...the first season was interesting without being overly complex. This season was an attempt to be M Night Shyamalan from the Sixth Sense, but it just doesn’t land.  The whole season just felt....off, and the pacing of the season didn’t do the plot any favors.  After watching this season, including the final post credit scene, I’m honestly not convinced they have enough of a story to tell to validate a 3rd season.  It wasn’t as bad as season 2 of True Detective, but it wasn’t great either.

Couldn’t make the argument that West Lafayette market was important huh?

05/25/2018 - 7:16pm C'mon people...

I like you

Also love the name change to the Allied Forces...take down the Axis forces and purge our lands from the evil scourge

So the horde is being directed at Columbus right?

05/20/2018 - 10:20pm Bloodsport

This is arguably the best movie of all time to 14 year old me

05/20/2018 - 8:13pm Guns of Navarrone

Love that film! Harrison Ford in an early role before he became George Lucas’ carpenter!

05/20/2018 - 5:58pm Sure I’m too late to the party for anyone to see this

But here’s the 3 off the top of my head that I didn’t see listed in my limited scrolling (no particular order):

Rounders

Interstellar (I lied about particular order, this movie is the GOAT)

Return of the King (LOTR 3)

05/17/2018 - 5:41pm Pretty sure Chaos was nerfed

The same time all our new recruits at 1 star were. I think they are at 0.5x, not 2x

05/17/2018 - 9:47am I’m gonna say Doak Walker

Mostly because I have a friend who just got a job within walking distance of the FSU campus...angling hard to get tickets to the Clemson game in October

05/16/2018 - 10:26pm Congrats

Best of luck

05/16/2018 - 4:53pm That’s odd...

I was gonna say the exact opposite

05/14/2018 - 10:45pm I really like Amy Adams though

Glad she’s not my aunt...would cause me to have feelings that would be weird and deeply confusing

05/14/2018 - 6:46pm Money is money

$5 is better than $0...plus I’m not really an avid gambler

05/14/2018 - 6:45pm Do you supply the crab grass and nails as well?

Or do they use a separate supplier?

05/14/2018 - 5:36pm Went for the joke...

Swing and a miss I suppose

05/14/2018 - 3:19pm Great way to make a living

Separating fools from their money

05/14/2018 - 3:17pm Not so...

I never enjoy OSU games anyway, so getting paid when they win is a huge gain, while I am more than willing to pay to watch them lose, which is an enjoyable experience as well on its own. Creates a can’t lose proposition for me.

05/14/2018 - 2:07pm Then why did you make such an asinine statement?

Don’t click on, then post in a thread you have no interest in if you don’t want to get downvotes for saying you don’t want to get downvoted because you aren’t interested in a thread you had to waste your own time to click on and then post in, thus wasting others people time they were already wasting without any help from you.

05/14/2018 - 1:59pm Keno in Ohio

A ton of bars and restaurants like Frickers and BWW already run Keno in their restaurants, so a sports book in every bar sounds very likely

05/14/2018 - 1:33pm The only real question...

Is how much will you be willing to pay to watch OSU lose?

For me it’s about $20 a week until Thanksgiving, then it goes up to $100. As soon as Ohio makes it legal, I’ll be betting on OSU straight up and enjoy the result one way or another.
