Well that was a fast turnaround.

Starts with a guy just popping up on my Facebook feed because he's in an MST3K group.  Posted a few things about the show, got some discussion going.

Next he just posts a pic of a Confederate flag...okay.  No text, no explanation, just the pic.  Not my thing, don't personally like people waving it, but for some they look past the bad symbolism.  Maybe he's just a Skynyrd fan or whatever.

Hey look, another picture with no text.

Isn't that? (checks Google)  Yup...that's a KKK badge.

So much for that guy on my feed.

Could just be a Kanye fan with just the flag, in all fairness... But yeah, pretty good indicator.

The flag was a literal red flag for me.  Didn't block him right away, but I was ready to watch carefully to see if he had to go.

The bulk of my TV watching is after the show is finished. The rental list currently has The Shield, The Wire, Chuck, Breaking Bad. I prefer to watch shows on my schedule rather than whenever they happen to be aired.

Also it can't be cancelled out from under you.

I usually do that too, like I did with Dexter, or accidentally, as with Firefly.  Every third shirt on most of the nerdy t-shirt sites refer to the show, but there was only one season.  Not sure how that happens, but I was a little surprised when I watched it on Netflix and the show ended just as I was starting to like it.

I see a metric shitton of Doctor Who t shirts also.  I wish they would move on to something else, but if thats what is selling I guess they gotta do what they gotta do...

Even as someone who isn't much of a Doctor Who fan, I wouldn't mind it so much if they were actually creative. But most of them are just inserting a Tardis into some other random geek property.

Yes and often it's Firefly the mashups are just so boring.

However Firefly is a great example of a show that's better to watch on disc than as broadcast; you can watch it in intended order for one thing.

Huh, this is cool.  So you know that old D&D audio sketch?  The one that everyone's heard?  This one:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/vChEPj0dXXk?hl=en_US&amp;amp;version=3&amp;amp;rel=0" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/vChEPj0dXXk?hl=en_US&amp;amp;version=3&amp;amp;rel=0</a>

It was a sketch by a comedy troupe called the Dead Alewives.  Amongst their members was Rob Schrab, the producer of the Sarah Silverman program (and he's done a bunch of other stuff I like).  But more interesting to people here would the other member, Dan Harmon, creator of Community. 

I always like finding connections between seemingly unrelated things that I like.

Well Harmon is all over the place so there's a good chance that if you like one thing he's connected to you may very well like some other things.

How do you feel about crazy old inventors/scientists and their grandson having wacky adventures?

Don't think I know what you're referencing, but I'd like to.
