Tring to catch some "camel toes".
That's the criteria I use for choosing shows too!
I'd have to get me one of those bathing suits, if I wore a bathing suit.
damn hard to find on today's programming!
Got Rookie Blue running in the background ...
I don't think I have ever seen an episode so chalk full of emotional scenes and the way it all ties together is brilliantly done.
It's the episode where McNally gets married, this is after she has her truck stolen by some young chick that McNally gave a ride to while speeding down the highway late for her own wedding. Turns out the kid stabbed some schmuck on the side of the road and jacked him bla bla bla
Right down to the closing scene song which was so perfect. If you are into this show you will get this, if not you are missing some good television with this show.
I watch it fairly regularly, I and have probably seen this one, but I am not sure. I preferred J Peck with longer hair, though
I could stare at Charlotte Sullivan if she were bald LOL. She is smoking hot.
I am a short hair guy. I like to see their facial features. Tell me she doesn't look hot like this :
She is a long haired brunette on a show I have been watching lately but can't place it right now. She plays a doctor but it might be Chicago Med or Chicago Fire.
An older episode of NCIS back when Zeva was still on the show. I was never really a fan of hers until I started watching the older eps again and she is actually pretty funny the way she mispronounces things lol.
This is the episode that the director (Lauren Holly) is kidnapped by a drug dealer.
And baseball ... opening day part 2

Good to have you back @Wafarer
I just watched APB. I like it for some reason ...
Taken is on. Like that show too.
`All points bulletin'? Probably not
You are correct Waf, that is what it stands for but it is a "futuristic type" cop show with a multi-billionaire that takes over a district and arms them with all kinds of "robocop" toys ...
It has a nice character development theme to it as well.
"Searching for Vimy's Lost" 2017
Families of some of the `lost soldiers' search for their remains in France, those that died during the huge battle that over 3500 Canadians paid the ultimate price.
fuckin French regional government stopped the dig! A bureaucrat did it, citing a law enacted during Nazi times, by the damn Nazis! Frenchies should not have done this, we fought to free their friggin country! Fuck those involved, damnable ingrates!
War Junk: 2015 Vimy Ridge--all four Canadian divisions fought here, under General Currie, the crew is on the battle site, and beautiful memorial.
11,00o names on the Canadian Memorial, lest we forget.
Typical, what couldn't be done in years took Canadians less than a week to do ...
the farmer was good(who owned the land) but the government overruled him
Vimy Ridge: 'What free people are capable of when the essential is at stake'
VIMY RIDGE, France -- They came together from coast to coast to coast, by the thousands, to say thank you and to remember.
Canadians of all ages and all walks of life, they gathered under the soaring pillars of the Canadian National Vimy Memorial on Sunday to mark the 100th anniversary of that fateful battle -- and reflect on its enduring legacy.
Exactly 100 years earlier, the scene here had been quite different. The sun that shone down on the masses on Sunday, forcing many to hide behind umbrellas lest they burn, had been non-existent in 1917.
Instead, rain and sleet and artillery shells had lashed what then was a muddy, bloody battlefield as 30,000 Canadian soldiers huddled in trenches and waited for the assault to kick off.
But there was one key similarity between that Easter Monday on April 9, 1917, and the scene 100 years later: Canadians stood together, shoulder to shoulder, proudly and unabashedly as one people.
"These ordinary and extraordinary men of the British dominion fought for the first time as citizens of one and the same country," Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in French as he addressed the crowd.
"Francophones and Anglophones. New Canadians. Indigenous Peoples. Side by side, united, here in Vimy, within the four divisions of the Canadian Corps."
The Battle for Vimy Ridge was a distinctly Canadian effort from the beginning, a true demonstration of all the best qualities that Canada represents: individual initiative; esprit de corps; gumption; enthusiasm.
Unburdened by a history of warfare, the Canadians looked at war differently and adopted new tactics such as the creeping barrage while entrusting the battleplan for the first time to even the lowliest privates.
But what really set the battle apart was that, for the first time in the Great War, the Canadians would be fighting all together as one single unit: The Canadian Corps.
Farmers from Weyburn next to miners from Cape Breton. Lawyers from Toronto with lumberjacks from Kelowna. Doctors from Montreal and cowboys from Red Deer.
And despite suffering horrible casualties during the four-day battle, with 3,598 dead and more than 7,000 wounded, they would succeed where the British and French had failed by capturing the ridge.
"This was and remains the single bloodiest day in Canadian military history," Prince Charles, representing the British monarchy, told the assembled crowd.
"Yet Canadians displayed a strength of character and commitment to one another that is still evident today. They did not waver. This was Canada at its best."
Yet it wasn't Canada's fighting prowess that was being touted as the legacy of Vimy on Sunday: It was the creation of a country committed to peace.
"Those spires stand for peace and for freedom," Gov. Gen. David Johnston said, indicating the white towers of the Canadian National Vimy Memorial behind him.
"They stand for justice and hope. And they remind us that one cannot exist without the other. Without freedom, there can be no peace. Because freedom without peace is agony, and peace without freedom is slavery."
French President Francois Hollande said the "blue ghosts of Vimy" serve as a reminder, not just of what happened 100 years ago, but what "free peoples" even today must sometimes do to protect peace.
"They tell us what free peoples are capable of when the essential is at stake," he said in French.
With all of those who fought not only at Vimy, but the Great War, now gone, it fell to other ways to remember them and their stories.
One pair of empty black combat boots for each of the men who died fighting for the ridge was placed atop the monument or on the vibrant green grass of the surrounding ridge.
Meanwhile, actors took on the personas of those who lived through that terrible time, bringing not only soldiers back to life, but also their mothers and fathers, wives and even nurses.
The ceremony itself was a mix of contemporary and traditional, as musical performances were followed by a lone bagpiper's mournful playing of The Lament and the laying of wreaths at Canada Bereft's feet.
There was also a clear effort to include Canada's indigenous people, who played a significant role in the First World War.
The emotion of the event was too much for some to bear.
Speaking to a reporter afterward, Second World War veteran Stan Egerton of Burlington teared up as he remembered his father who had fought at Vimy, and two brothers killed in the conflict that followed.
"I'd rather not say," the 91-year-old said when asked what he was thinking about as he looked up at the monument.
Others, like high-school student Chloe McManus of East Hants, N.S., who had come to Vimy with several members of her history class, struggled to find the right words to express what Vimy meant to her.
But others couldn't say enough, such as the citizens of the nearby French city of Arras, who were eager to show their appreciation.
Vimy just one part of the larger Battle of Arras in April 1917, but also the most successful.
During a ceremony in the city centre earlier in the day, Arras Mayor Frederic Leturque thanked Australia, Britain, New Zealand and South Africa for having fought during that larger battle.
But he saved a special thanks for Canada, telling Trudeau and the hundreds of others assembled that the Canadians' actions at Vimy were "a turning point for our city and our country."
An encore of 300: Rise of an Empire.
we learn of the suffering of Artemisia, the torture she endured(poor girl!) and the reasons for her bloodlust.
Still, such a turn on!
`Now sit on your golden throne, and watch the battle from the safety that I provide you' -- Artemesia to Xerxes
lines like this really add to the value of this movie!
`You fight much harder than you fuck!' what's not to love about Artemesia?

Flipping channels and am watching part of L.A. Burning: 25 years later on A&E and am sad and mad at the same time ...
I have now tuned this in...
It is one of those programs one might not necessarily want to watch but you need to just to form your own conclusions ...
When they pulled Rodney King out of his vehicle and threw the brick at his head my heart sank.
All those innocent victims due to a fucked up court system ...
Yes, but that poor soul was Reginald Denny, not King.
Thx Waf, I was just going to correct myself as I watch it. Kinda got names all jumbled together getting flustered watching it all.
I really like how after the initial rioting the city came together and started cleaning up and helping fire fighter carry hoses to put out burning buildings.
Rival gangs were putting their differences aside to become part of the solution and if bloods and crips can do it ...
25 years later there are still lasting effects ...
One of the few good moments. I am shaking my head at some of the rhetoric I heard about two minutes ago. They must be rappers to be so
creative with their words.
There was a sympathetic reaction by black youth in Toronto soon after this, the so-called `Yonge Street Riots'! This disgusted many of us.
However, the two most prominent black self-interest groups in To. at this time denounced this, disavowed themselves, which was good to read in the dailies.
I am having a hard time swallowing that the guy that took the video and helped prosecute the guilty had a bounty on him for doing the right thing in most peoples eyes ... except the problem people that spent time behind bars for it and their friends that thought it was all okay to do in the first place.
Streets of Compton is on A & E now, looking back to `61 at this time, and the racial divide of East and West Compton divided up by the landlords.
The weather sucking my money away.
Porn right now
Watching "Bull" with Michael Weatherley, the guy that played Tony on NCIS until last season. Yes I know it is TV BUT this show is loosely based on Phil McGraw aka Dr. Phil and how he goes about helping choose jury's ... stack the deck in the defenses favor, which btw is not too hard to do if the person is actually innocent and has deep pockets. I enjoy the way they employ stats and bio-metrics with "mirror jury's" and having taken part in a few jury trials (on both sides lol) it is quite accurate as far as the American justice system goes. We have a much different system here hence I tend to go bench trial (judge alone). Never leave your fate in the hands of 12-15 people full of emotion and rather take your chances with a judge that is bound by laws and evidence ... JUST hope he got laid the night before trial starts LOL.
Separate names with a comma.
