αΩ | Φ | nobody said it was easy

You're feeling sleeeeepy...

I just caught up on the last four episodes of The O.C. and am feeling suitably sniffly. Also, Ben McKenzie looks about a million times better now than he did four years ago.

I think I may also have about four, possobly five, episodes of FNL to catch up on, but I'm not feeling it right now. Maybe I'll marathon the rest of the season after the finale in May. Or maybe I'll get bored with the upcoming hiatus of...oh, EVERYTHING (except The Black Donnellys!!!!) and catch up.

Still 4 (FOUR!) caps left unguessed, but if you can't wait any longer, Collapse )

Pop quiz, hot shot

Okay, so here's something that's been bugging me for the past, oh, 12 years or so:

At the beginning of Speed, when Harry and Jack are in the elevator shaft, this is roughly how I remember their conversation:

Harry: A terrorist is holding a hostage. You're ten feet away. What do you do?
Jack: Shoot the terrorist.
Harry: Okay, a terrorist is holding a hostage. You're a hundred feet away.
Jack: Shoot the hostage.

But in every single version I've seen since that first one in the theater, they've cut out the first part of the quiz, but they rest is the same, including the emphasis on "a hundred", which just makes the whole line-reading seem off.

Can anyone confirm or deny the existence of the first version so I can put these 12 years of unease to rest?

For some reason the "Team Piz" icons that keep showing up make me laugh. Probably because I don't get who exactly they imagine they're competing against. I keep picturing three people standing out on a rainy football field while everyone else is in the gym, holding a basketball rally.

I'm thinking of deleting all the votes at vm-caps, because I don't think they're representative of what people think. Take this cap for instance. Nine votes, with an average rating of 1.8. And before I gave it five stars yesterday, the average was 1.4. But judging by the number of views, that's not really how people feel about it.

In fact, I tried to see if there was a way of getting rid of the voting altogether, but I couldn't find anything. Does anyone know of a way?

I watched the first five episodes of The O.C. this weekend and you guys were right, it is fun again! I wouldn't say it's good, but then again I never thought so. I guess my one big problem with it is that I'm not really a Ryan fan (though Taylor seems to bring out his best qualities). It's not that I dislike him, it's just that I find him so incredibly dull.

Did anyone who wanted one not get a comment from me in my last post? Wow, that was convoluted, but hopefully you know what I mean.
