    More about Last Chance U: I watched the first two episodes and they were really well done. Most of you know that I hate sports movies. They're so manipulative; it always comes down to the last few seconds, when our plucky little athletes, facing incredible odds, have somehow pulled within a single score of winning. Then the light go low, the motion goes slow, and the violins surge, and the hero slowly crosses the plane. But this docuseries is all true-- it really happened that way. And sometimes the protagonist doesnt win.

    This will be of interest to you ute fans: one of the main characters is a truly gifted running back named DJ Law. Like all of the other guys on the team, Law was accepted by a D1 program, only to fail due to grades, (they are all there due to grades or off-the-field issues, or insubordination with the coaching staff-- this is why the series is called Last Chance U). Law was supposed to play for the Utes, and in episode 1, you see him waving a Utah hat wistfully, like he knows he could have gotten to D1 had he just studied harder. (Actually, he's this guy who signed with both Utah and Ole Miss.) The camera pulls in for a closeup interview: Law admits that even with his athletic ability, he doesn't know how to study; he's so disciplined on the field and so undisciplined in the classroom. Later in the episode, we meet Law's father who is a common street thug, in and out of jail, and so young he seems more like Law's brother. Law says that in coming to JUCO, he has gotten farther in education than anyone else in his family, ever. I wonder how he even manages to get that far-- it is obvious that he was never given the tools to study and to read. This series does a great job in explaining how even the most gifted athlete on the gridiron can be crushed by the demands of collegiate life.

    There are plenty of subplots, involving the one woman in the movie, the QB controversy, the huge beefy lineman who is dumb as a box of rocks and who has learned that his size allows him to bully everyone. (Mute whenever he is onscreen, because he only knows 10 words, and 4 of them are versions of the F word). I like the player Isaiah, pretty laid back, but capable of some gutsy moves when it involves football. (There's a hilarious scene where he puts himself in the game on kickoff return, and he runs the ball back and scores a touchdown, with the coach on the sideline yelling "Who's that guy?") I like the offensive coordinator who doesn't really swear and seems to be a religious man. I like the white QB vying for the starting role-- unlike most of the other players, he is not there for bad reasons- he didn't get a shot at D1 and figures winning a championship at a JUCO will step him up to a decent program. But he has options-- he tells the camera that if he doesn't make it in football, he'll probably go to Ole Miss and play intramurals and graduate the average joe way.

    Just finished Stranger Things. Like most on here. I thoroughly enjoyed it and the homage to The greatest time in my life. Bey nostalgic..

    One thing I have noticed is that kids just don't ride bikes to get places or be outside as much. Gone are the days of kids doing that..

    Recently watched The Last Kingdom and very much recommend it. Historical fiction set in late ninth century England as different kingdoms fight to repel Danish viking invasions. It's done by the BBC and pretty entertaining. It's a more-tame Game of Thrones with less boobies and no dragons, but I enjoyed it for the semi-educational experience of learning about Alfred the Great and the formation of England out of Wessex, Mercia, and the other surrounding kingdoms.

    Brendan Dassey's conviction overturned by a federal judge. That's good -- the way he was manipulated by police and betrayed by his lawyers was so appalling.

They searched the home 7 times and it wasn't until the 4th time they found the car key in his room in the middle of the bedroom floor? A car key she had for 4 years but only his dna was on it, not hers. It had clearly been scrubbed.

    I think the cops found her dead and placed the evidence to make it look like he did it. Whether it was suicide or something else. She posted a video about living a good life and being happy if she died. Creepy thing for a 25 year old to say.
    Brendan's conviction was overturned yesterday.

    I think this is an attempt to retroactively establish a pattern of behavior in case somebody brought that up ^ again.

    People have posted shows that are up and coming ones that they have watched.

    I thought this thread was all things Netflix.

    There's a new show about drug cartels called "The Narcos." Looks pretty good.

    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    Damn, the Carrillo character on Narcos is ruthless.
    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    The woman playing Pablo's mom looks like Dustin Hoffman in Tootsie.

    The guy playing Pablo is a great actor. He's a Brazilian guy who's been in some pretty decent films out of Brazil.
