So during the football game that was simulcast on CBS and Nickelodeon today, someone dropped an F bomb... and it aired on Nickelodeon uncensored and without a tape delay.

I've heard a few F bombs and other swear words watching games this year, with no crowd noise you can hear all the stuff the players yell at each other.  Funny that when I'm watching an Eagles game and have the local radio guys on I don't hear them because the field noise is turned way down.

Damn.  So many of the wonderful actors from this series are gone now.  (Shit - she was only two years older than I am!)

The 6 year project to remaster Babylon 5 is done, but you can only get the remastered series streaming, no word on a blu-ray release.  It's on HBO-MAX, and you can buy it on Amazon and iTunes.

$30 a season X 5 seasons = $150...

I may buy one episode just to see how it looks, then see if I feel like spending that much for the series, the DVDs do look kind of terrible on a 55 inch TV.   

Edit:  $30 a season not $40, and I did some digging and Vudu has a bundle of all 5 seasons in HDX for $70.  That is much better, probably about the same cost if a blu-ray set ever comes out.

Yeah it's worse on a 75" HDTV..
I might wait to see if they do produce a Blu-Ray set :-\
