Now that it's over...  (I posted right after Quentin got shot, before the twist).

OK - The Carver is dead on the floor.  Nobody notices him still breathing?  Unless that weird jacked was supposed to suppress his chest movement.  Even so... Nostrils move.  Eyes move.  People usually don't die instantly from a torso shot.  That was just a little bit sloppy.

But let's say he's a good actor.  Or he pumped himself with tranquilizer.  Even so... a coroner would take and process the body... put him in the body bag.  He'd notice Quentin wasn't dead.  Then when he walked out of the morgue... somebody would notice. 

I know... it's nitpicky.  It was a good, satisfying ending.  I was hoping it was something deeper than just Quentin, but the circumstances around it really made it pay off.  But for a series with such stellar writing, you'd think the end would be a little more plausible.  I'm all for suspension of disbelief.  But that was just a bit too much.

I wish there was more follow-up on the racist guy, too.  Matt walked in at the end like he just got back from burying the body, but the dinner happened a while after the shooting.  Did they call the cops?  Hide his body?  Maybe we'll find out next season.  I hope this one's quicker to arrive than the last!

I hope I don't sound too negative.  I actually loved it.  It's just sitting down and thinking about it afterwards, you see the holes.

I know I said I'm avoiding this thread, but I figured it was safe since tamidala was the only one to post after me, and I wanted to get this idea on the record so everyone will know how smart I am come Tuesday.  ;-)

Maybe it's somebody we haven't seen, but who has been discussed extensively this season.  How about Christian's FATHER??!!!

Think about it - the Carver is roughly the same height and weight as Christian.  Genetics.  And he's a serial rapist.  Fits Christian's dad's profile perfectly!

So put that down as my prediction.  The best part is that it could lead to one of the all-time greatest TV moments... The Carver leans over Christian, and in his electronically-altered voice tells him:  "Christian... I am your father!!!"

Coke Zero is Diet Coke with Splenda instead of NutraSweet.  And it does taste MUCH more like regular Coke.

Same thing with Sprite Zero.

Wild Cherry Pepsi, Pepsi One, and Cherry Vanilla Diet Dr. Pepper all use Splenda as well, and all taste fantastic.

I predict the days are numbered for traditional Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi.  Splenda is just SO MUCH BETTER.

I think I may just avoid this thread for the next 6 days just so I don't accidentally stumble upon something I don't want to...

I checked it out in slow-mo on TiVo.  I won't spoil it for anyone here, though.

This week's episode was decent.  Nothing too stunning, but interesting.

But the promo for next week - Holy Crap!!

Was that Quentin all cut up on the bed with "I can't stop" written above him?  I couldn't tell, it went by so fast.  I know I'm gonna be glued to my set next Tuesday.

Gentlemen, I think we have a new candidate for those "Want to get away" Southwest commercials...

I've read about traders taking down their companies before... but never by accident.  Dude needs a do-over something fierce.  It's scary to think that one guy with a computer can almost destroy an entire country's economy.

Except she looks like she is about 15....

That's because she IS about 15.  Born in 1990.   :o

I'm leaning towards that being her as well.  A woman lying about her age claiming to be OLDER than she actually is... that's a switch.   ;)

Yeah, I never pictured Julia as the murdering type.  It was pretty ambiguous whether it was a mercy killing or malicious.  And her "Oh my God, who did I kill" expression when she saw her mom just raises more questions.

SHE'S THE CARVER!!!!   ;D

I loved the myspace/carver promo at the end.  Funny stuff.  It's pretty innovative to explore a non-traditional promotional avenue like that.  10 steps ahead of us, huh??

She'd be good until she opened her mouth.  I hear her stand-up comic act is the filthiest thing ever.

Looks like the Juggernaut is in the movie.  Big guy next to Magneto in the forrest (and locked up behind that door).  Beast just looks wrong.  I might get used to him, but right now he looks just a bit too human.  His face should be fuzzy.

Try this:

The original link was to HD trailers.  That can be very taxing on your system.
