Sonya's response, like: "What are you doing here?? We can't have sex in the office"

 

Back to the horse: I replayed it a few times to see if the markings were the same as the opening scene. Couldn't tell for sure. 

 

Oddity: The closed captioning was done by WBGH, my old Boston PBS station, the one that launched Julia Child.

I haven't watched this week's episode yet. Does the Spoiler tag work for this IP Board?

Thanks for the correction; much appreciated. At least I didn't use two S-es.

 

So, the score now is:

 

casual sex - 1

intimacy - 0


It's usually safe to talk honestly and openly with people because they typically are not really listening anyway.

I think you need a bigger scorecard, as there are a number of players here!

I also used to have to visit El Paso and Juarez as well although the bridge in the first episode isn't the main bridge b/w the two cities.  Going to Juarez is quite an experience.  Good show, though.

I went to El Paso last year and of course could not resist the walk to Juarez, was offered a ride to tourist sites and to see the ladies. I went by myself, did not take the cabbies offer was thinking what if I get mugged and get my passport stole how will I get home. Now if I was with some people I probably would take in some stuff cause of the excitment factor, I live in boring Seattle come on now.

Is that what the kids are calling it these days?

 

Yes, Seattle is boring unless your true love is bad coffee, but at least you will not spend 30 years in a foreign hell-hole jail just because you drove into the wrong queue (ending up in Juarez) and they found a single round of ammo buried in your trunk. Has happened to a number of folks.

Well, sure. But can't I comment about just one aspect?

 

I guess my point is that Sonya is indeed, as the other girl at the PD says, "an interesting girl". She seems to know exactly what she wants, how to get it, exactly how and how fast she wants it, how to enjoy it, exactly what she doesn't want, and how to avoid that. And I certainly would not be unhappy just because I didn't get to snuggle a little bit. Girls with a damaged social filter are my weakness, especially if they are hot, blonde, and stunning.

I just got this week's show but anybody know how I can play catchup back to the pilot and the next 2 shows? I can do VOD on Directv but that's only SD and I won't watch SD. Is Amazon or Netflix or somebody carrying the show in HD? And how come Directv only VODs in SD??

DirecTV VOD is in the format that the network provides it to DirecTV. There are some VODs that are HD. FX provides it in SD though.

As Merg says.

 

And I thought I caught a mention at the end that one could stream it from FX itself, or maybe some re-casts of the first eps. Wasn't paying attention, but you might FF to the end, then back up and see what info's at the end of the ep.

Yup. Although some parts were a little predictable.

FX only has the latest ep. And the streaming from their site is terrible, you need super bandwidth to get non-jittery video. So I found it on Amazon--my Roku box streams magnificently for the lousy bandwidth I have. I got "Maria" and on out in HD off sat, so grabbed the first 3 off Amazon. Looks like a pretty good show.

Oddity: The closed captioning was done by WBGH, my old Boston PBS station, the one that launched Julia Child.

I played at WGBH a couple of times, and ran into Julia Childs there in the stairwell. She was about as tall as me, about 6-2 then. Once I was there in a 3-man orchestra for a live radio broadcast of Archibald MacLeish's "Fall of the City", and the second time my band was playing for their yearly telethon. And I was on David Silver's "What's Happening Mr. Silver?" on WGBH-TV.

 

Question about The Bridge: What does Hastings do business-wise with Alma when we first see them hanging out at lunchtime? And how did Hastings know his wife and son were killed by hit-and-run scumbag Jr. Sol or whatever his name was? And what was the stripper scene at the open with Jr. Sol and Frye all about? It looked like Frye was playing him in some way.
