SERIOUSLY.
When I typed "Steve Agee" into Google just now, "Steve Agee height" popped up first.
He's...
...6'6".

If anyone watched the most-excellent show The Last Kingdom on BBC America last year, season 2 is now up on Netflix.

I got it partly from that. I used to lurk there a lot but haven't since they shut their message boards down. Are they any good message boards that cover a wide variety of TV and movies like they (and TVWOP) used to?
Answering here instead of LL73 where it was originally posted since the answer may be useful to more than the limited audience in the LL thread.

Plus, it's a good reason to bump this thread off the bottom of page 2.

It's pretty good for TV shows, the J! thread caters to more reactions about the contestant personalities than J! Board does, and movies are hit & miss for useful discussion.

My time on IMDb has greatly diminished since the loss of the message boards.

Oh man that jeopardy thread is a nightmare. I've ventured into it a few times over the past couple years and keep forgetting how horrible it is, every single person just insistent on telling the world why they hate every player. "I had to root for the player with the Swastika tattoo on their face today because Erica didn't take the clues in order and Dave said please after some of his category selections. Ugh, get off my tv, please!"

I saw a Twitter post from Andrew Pau saying he was going back to California, so I'm guessing he's taping the TOC.

I saw some FB chatter that speculated the M-Tu taping is in order to wrap it up before Rosh Hashanah following on the 20th.

And now they're going to rescore the fight, but will not change the result unless they have clear evidence of fraud? What if they rescore and Pac ends up winning? Why do this is the rescoring if irrelevant?

Drum up attention for a rematch.

The best part of the fight coverage had to be Timothy Bradley, Jr., who won a similarly controversial decision over Pacquiao five years ago, trying to justify Horn's victory while Teddy Atlas gave Bradley the business.

CNN will be showing The Nineties beginning Sunday, July 9th: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Nineties_(miniseries)

It's the usual format with clips and commentary making it impossible for a trivia person not to learn something while also getting a refresher course during the trip down memory lane.

The first one is TV:

Ally McBeal
Doogie Howser, M.D.
The Practice
Picket Fences
Spin City
The X-Files
Blossom

and on and on
