Re: The Videogames Tab

Re: The Videogames Tab

I figure you Videogames nerds might be able to help me here. I recently bought a 43" 4K smart TV to use as a computer monitor. It's been AWESOME to have that much screen real estate, but I notice...

So it's music written for the show then. I guess I just always scratched my head at that "woman singing in Norwegian" bit in the subtitles, since I kept wondering if that fact had any significance. :D

I do wonder if some of this is due to the CDC changing to five days instead of ten days for self-isolation. And I wonder how much of that change was because so much of the work force is currently...

Well, we live in a big house and I have my own huge home office all decked out with everything I need to keep away from him (couch, TV, computer, desks, etc.). Very comfy up here. And once he showed...

Okay, collective hive mind... I've been meaning to ask this for several SEASONS of this show now. If you watch with the subtitles on (and I do that with everything now), you've seen this every single...

Well, I thought it was a better ending than BSG or Lost, let's say. Or Dexter. :D Not saying much, though, is it? :D

They purposely stopped short of where the books all go, and I assume that just...
