Yeah, me too, I never watched much because of Regis though. Still don't watch actually.

Be glad when Fargo TV on FX comes back on. Last years 10 parter was excellent, this year new characters and new story.

Posted this under "suggestions" earlier. Hope I see some response.

Not long ago AMC really pissed off hundreds, if not thousands, of regular posters by changing several things in a negative way. One was going to a black background which almost universally was hated. Here are 3 things I know will attract those TV fans.

1. I tried to get everyone to move to TVRage but most didn't like that they couldn't drag and drop links and photos for one thing. Please make that simple change.

2. Another complaint is that there was no way to reply to a post below the post (like FB and AMC do). Please make it possible to do that.

3. Add a "like" button, that is such a simple way to get each others approval and everyone (!!!!) complained when AMC took that away from all posts except the header post. We all need our approval it seems.

I love my TVRage and try to get people here when I have a chance, but TVRage needs to make some changes to attract new people. I can remember when this place was busy busy busy.

And these posts need to be marked in some way so that we know they've been read. When suggesting improvements to TVRage it's wise to acknowledge a members concerns.

Forums are definitely a dying medium. People are all about instant gratification nowadays, something that Twitter and Facebook, to name a few, are so great at doing.

#2 and #3 would be nice features.

I think finding ways to improve the community is crucial, otherwise this site will just be a database and nothing more. As one of the former most active users in the forums, I find it hard to post, only because I know I won't get any responses nor have anything new/worth viewing. I miss having tons of posts and replies. The best solution would be to integrate the site more with social media in some way, or instead of having a forum, have a "wall/page" where thoughts and stuff are streamlined and aggregrated in some way or another - with hashtags used to categorize them (i.e. #bugs for issues, #suggestions, #question, #television, or more show-specific or actor-specific topics like #GreysAnatomy or #GeorgeClooney.

This place (TVRage) is much cleaner looking than FB which I hate even though I'm a member, mostly to keep in touch with family.

My 3 suggestions are a must, IMHO, to keep TVrage current with popular ideas.

Here's me with Billy West and John DiMaggio. Both are voice actors on Futurama (Billy is Fry and well, most of the cast, John is Bender and a few others). John is also Jake the Dog on Adventure time, and many other TV series. So glad to have finally met some of my fave voice actors.

Happy Fourth of July everybody !!!

The Boston Massacre (March 5, 1770) is considered the beginning of the American revolution. The Boston Massacre actually started when a group of kids heckled the British solders protecting unpopular customs officials. Unruly bar patrons joined the kids and eventually one of the patrons, Crispus Attucks an Indian-black mixed-race sailor (some think a pirate) came from the bar Royal Exchange and clobbered one of the British soldiers. Attucks was then shot dead along with 4 others and several more were wounded.

John Adams (yes, that John Adams) and Josiah Quincy defended the British solders. Adams labeled the crowd a “motley rabble of saucy boys, negroes and molattoes, Irish teagues, and out landish Jack Tarrs” and stated that the "appearance of Attucks would be enough to terrify any person.” The British solders were all acquitted except for two who were branded on the hand. (not much punishment for killing 5 people and starting a war is it?)

John Adams (yes, that John Adams) later signed a letter about liberty to Massachusetts Gov. Thomas Hutchinson with the name Crispus Attucks instead of his own. ( I assume to honor Attucks’s memory.) These bar patrons were drunks, gamblers, pirates and prostitutes and average working men. Yet the 1787 Philadelphia Convention that drafted the Constitution was dominated by wealthy conservatives. Some of the early acts passed by the new United States Congress were about controlling the population.

The struggle begins anew.

From the books “A People’s History of the United States” By Howard Zinn and “A Renegade History of the United States” by Thaddeus Russell.

saucy boys = impertinent or disrespectful
molattoes = mixed race
Irish teagues = Irish Catholics, meant as an insult.
Jack Tarrs = sailors
