message 46: by Julia (last edited Feb 03, 2014 02:45AM) (new)

Julia (juliastrimer) My dad was a football coach in college--but professional football drives me nuts! It's a business, and this stat about the television ads during the Super Bowl is insane:

"In 2014, a 30-second spot is reportedly going for $4 million, up from $3.8 million in 2013." http://www.ibtimes.com/super-bowl-ads...

think of all the good the world could do with that money spent on ads!


message 49: by Jessica (new)

Jessica First a have to admit I am getting ready to go fan girl so get ready.

I LOVE SHERLOCK!! Omg best show I have seen (surprisingly topped Breaking Bad and House, which is saying a lot for me) any of you due hard fans? We MUST chat!

Who's getting ready for:
Hannibal
Mad Men and/or
The new Strain! So excited it finally made it to tv!


message 50: by Julia (last edited Feb 23, 2014 05:56AM) (new)

Julia (juliastrimer) My DVD of the third season of SHERLOCK arrived yesterday, and I marathon-watched all three episodes in a row!! What an amazing show :-)

I love that the parents of Mycroft and Sherlock in this season are the REAL parents of Benedict Cumberbatch, Wanda Ventham and Timothy Carlton. (I'm not sure who the girl with them is):



And when John gets married in the show, the actress playing Mary is his real-life partner Amanda Abbington.
