Haha, as it happened, I didn't have to talk him into it. It popped up on our Netflix screen on Saturday, and I asked hopefully if he'd be interested in checking out the first episode that I'd seen. We watched the first 9 episodes IN ONE DAY. Talk about a binge. ;) Wilson Fisk (Kingpin) is an awesome character. Great villain. Episode 8 (I think that's it) is a classic.

Yes, all the episodes are out although I haven't watched any others yet because my husband just doesn't care for super hero shows, and we're ensconced in several other shows at the moment (Mad Men, Game of Thrones, still getting through the new season of House of Cards ... would like to check out Wolf Hall, etc etc).

I am at episode 4 and I think you can tell your husband that this is only a vaguely superhero show. It is great and I am surprised how different it is from all the Marvel stuff they have done until now. It is *really* dark. Actually, this is what I call dark. I don´t think I closed my eyes watching something for some time but I definitely did it here. 
But it is also very addictive. I am sure I will end the season by the end of the week :D

Random Hugh mention on this morning's Fox5 morning show with Greg and Rosanna. It had to do with a story on a wolverine chewing through metal bars on his cage in the Newark Liberty Airport cargo area. Both co-hosts thought--as Hugh once did, I think--that the wolverine was a fictitious animal, dreamed up for comic books and movies. Rosanna asked, "Did they call Hugh Jackman?" Then they showed that ultra-ripped, sepia-toned photo that I think was making the Internet rounds during promotion of THE WOLVERINE. Greg comments, "Boy, is that guy ripped! Is that photoshopped? I don't think so."

Watched the first episode of Daredevil, out on Netflix today, and I'm on board. Really enjoying Charlie Cox in the lead role.
I forgot about it, until my colleague at work started about it. The whole thing is out, right? Because Netflix has always the complete tv shows out.

Really bummed that I can't get to Chicago to see the Lyric Opera's CAROUSEL starring Steve Pasquale as Billy Bigelow. Steve was royally robbed of a Tony nom IMHO for last season's BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY musical. Jarrod Emick, Hugh's erstwhile TBFO costar, plays the villainous ne'er-do-well, Jigger, in this production. I hope it comes to NY with the cast intact.

Yes while he is still very handsome, Hugh has aged out of that "pretty boy" phase of his 30s. Since I prefer men whose faces have been lived in for a while so you can see their histories for good or ill engraved, this is a definite improvement :)

narrows101: I just want you to know that I FINALLLY got rid of that "1" hovering over the "bookmark" word on the toolbar. I went into "profile" then "edit profile" and unchecked everything to see if it went away and it did. Then I checked everything one by one. Sept 19, 2013 20:35:27 GMT -5
narrows101: After "edit profile" and then "notifications" I unchecked everything and checked again. The culprit was "Forum" - "when a bookmark is update" - took that checkmark off and the "1" went away. Checked it again and it came back. So that was it. No idea why. Sept 19, 2013 20:37:35 GMT -5
ocycd: can anyone tell me why the photo I had for my avatar suddenly disappeared?? Sorry, I'm kind of a dunce when it comes to these things! Sept 21, 2013 15:14:33 GMT -5
narrows101: ocycd - I still see your avatar. Sept 22, 2013 9:24:14 GMT -5
Kristin: Ocycd - It's probably an issue on your end, with graphics not loading properly, because I can see your avatar too. Unless you can see everyone else's avatar and not yours, then I'll have to figure out why that's happening. Sept 22, 2013 20:37:44 GMT -5
Kristin: Pat - Awesome! It was bothering me that I couldn't figure that one out. Sept 22, 2013 20:38:07 GMT -5
ocycd: That is so weird cuz I can see everyone else's avatars but still not mine... and the same is true on my mac and my pc laptop... very strange. Maybe I'll try reloading it on my laptop next time I'm on it... thanks narrows101 and Kristin!! Sept 23, 2013 16:22:48 GMT -5
ocycd: My avatar is BACK! And I didn't do a thing... thank you magic virtual wizards!! Sept 27, 2013 15:01:45 GMT -5
24601: Kristin, what do you see below my avatar? Nov 19, 2013 22:53:12 GMT -5
nmb: :) Dec 12, 2013 18:42:47 GMT -5
24601: This is an absurd question. How does one post a new freestanding post within a thread? Using Reply button is all I know and more often than not becomes tedious, repetitive, bandwidth sucking reading. Feb 23, 2014 15:13:32 GMT -5
Kristin: You can't. You can only reply to threads or create a new thread. You can use the quick reply to just post something without responding to anyone in a thread, or quoting someone, but as far as just posting in a thread, you have to use the reply button. Mar 21, 2014 13:25:23 GMT -5
frances: The hair is one thing but I wish we had more opportunity to see that face without the beard. May 6, 2014 12:07:05 GMT -5
SueFB: Does anybody ever pay attention to this place here? Aug 11, 2014 15:24:05 GMT -5
Kristin: I forget it's here most of the time. Aug 12, 2014 6:59:17 GMT -5
SueFB: Yeah, me, too. I wonder what it's really intended for. For random comments that don't belong anywhere? I guess. Aug 13, 2014 8:12:31 GMT -5
ocycd: Here's my random thought... a week from tonight I'm seeing The River and I'm too excited to sleep! Oct 28, 2014 0:08:20 GMT -5
24601: How many times have you all seen the show or seen him at the stage door? Nov 5, 2014 15:53:50 GMT -5
ocycd: I only saw the show the one time... and I didn't wait at the stage door or before or after... but I'm thinking I might have to go back in January to see how the show has changed! Nov 9, 2014 22:10:04 GMT -5
24601: 2 River Ticket - Jan 25th. Good seats. PM me if interested. Nov 26, 2014 20:15:09 GMT -5
