I want to be the daughter on Homeland.
((Messing up my hair) "Um, like, I'm clenching my back teeth together and speaking through them in a monotone... except at the end of my sentence? Where my monotone voice goes up a little?"
(Knits eyebrows together) "Um (rolls eyes upwards, stares) I, like ... wonder if I should raise my eyebrows instead of, you know, like knitting them together? I wonder what my parents would want? Because, I would like, do the opposite."
"I'm like, totally manipulating my mother into letting me fuck my disturbed boyfriend, because my mom is like, 10,000 times hotter than I'll ever be. I've gotta get sex from somewhere, right? And my mom's not getting any. So, I'm like, winning? Right?"
I love this show the best of all.
I love Clair Danes.
Suppose her diagnosis is integral thread of the plot - but really am getting tired of "Lock 'er up, Shock 'er, Let 'er go. She remembers something then does her best work."
That said, NOTHING, is more tedious or annoying in this show than the teen daughter.
Lauren Ambrose & Sarah Gilbert played the best teenagers ever. Serious attitude with punk style and some kind of reassuring smarts.
R4 - You are right about Lauren and Sara.
i like quinn and will we see broady ever?
Exactly, where has Brody been?
Oh, that scene between the daughter and her hot boyfriend marched right up to the line. I almost felt dirty after seeing that. Isn't she supposed to be 16?
"This is what happens to girls without a strong father presence," said my inner Jewish mother.
That boy is going to be bad news, very bad news, before this thing is over. He isn't locked up because people don't understand him.
I hope that boy is legal, or I crossed a moral boundary tonight (and I think I became a lesbian).
In real life she would be preggers and her life ruined in this GOP woman hating world.
Is there another Homeland thread? I couldn't find one when I did a search.
What is the point in keeping Brodie alive? He's worth $10M if they turn him in. If they don't turn him in, he's worth nothing. So why keep him alive?
Shit, I didn't realize Season 3 had started already. Gotta go catch up.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
