I bought my dad the last 3 seasons over the past couple of years as neither he nor I have Stars. It is a great piece of entertainment with sometimes great acting. I am still a believer that the first two seasons were truly the best, in part because of John Hannah.
Anyone not made contact with their giver and receiver?
 I can see winter madness has already started in Duluth.  Break out your Vitamin D light, get Into the Woods groove.
Nah, I am always a deliver right before Christmas type. I managed to track Tim K to his in-laws for his present a couple of years ago and it arrived about the same time he did.  I will start a bit earlier because who knows what the Canadian Customs and Imports office will do to me.
So, tonight, I am cruising Mordor, looking for some orcs to kill, when I see...   No!!!! Not my man, Singer. I put the heavy chomp on the vile Orc, but he retreats right as I get knocked down by some stupid rock. I never catch up. After I fail that mission, I see     If Crusader Kings taught me nothing, it is that I must seek revenge for Rain Dog!   Success and the orc dropped an Epic rune! Consider yourself revenged, Rain Dog!
So, with number 20, Nick just turned the knob to 11.  I could watch the collected works of Christopher Guest all day, but This is Spinal Tap is amazing.
So, playing with the awesome gift that Singer gave me, Middle-earth:Shadow of Mordor. It plays a lot like Arkham Asylum, but with much, much more killing. I am enjoying it. I am only 8 percent through, after a couple of hours of play last night. I am going to have to change some keybinds though. Using Left Ctrl is breaking my pinky finger.     Thanks Singer! Between this and earlier loving, I definitely owe you more than second base if we ever meet in real life.
I have to agree with mcNooj, Analog Olmos, and Bucho on this one. It was a hard film, but damn was it a great theater experience. The German women segment was needed: it showed us Pitt's character, it showed us what war had done to his tank crew, plus Pena's top hat and cane was magnificent. It's also a deconstruction of all the "young man goes to war, gets laid by the women they liberate, learns about life, and wins the war."  That final battle scene had my bloodpressure...
 Yeah...this sounds like a really long preamble to "We are not going to indict."
 Yep. Last year, tracking my giftee's growing desire to learn more about steampunk led to a great Christmas, even if its presentation wasn't up to my par. Flu knocked me down for 2 weeks.
