    Man, the lights going out really killed the Ravens' momentum and turned it into a legitimate game.

    On another front, the commercials sucked this year.

    Yeah, that was fortuitous for the 49ers. I think they'd have been blown out if it wasn't for that power outage.

    Yeah, I agree. It's been a long while since I thought the SuperBowl ads were very good.

    And fortunate for fans! Because as much as you want your team to win, a lackluster Super Bowl is a real downer.

    It really has.

    And godaddy.com hit a new low this year with their nerd sucking supermodel face ad. Thanks for making the SuperBowl not only an uncomfortable experience for families everywhere, but really gross, too.

    The Iron Man spot was a huge disappointment: what felt like a five second ad telling us we can see the whole thing on Facebook.

    Because after loading up on wings, nachos, and beer, everyone wants to rush to their computer so they can see the last half of that ad!

    Well, I personally would have been okay with a Ravens blowout victory.

    It really has.

    That GoDaddy ad was horrid. I'm sure someone was amused by it, but I wasn't that fellow.

    Maybe it's because I just wasn't that invested in the outcome, but blowouts tend to be boring. It's great to see your team seal the deal in no uncertain terms, but the experience itself falls kind of flat.

    I'm sure the nerd got a real kick out of it! So that makes one.

    My friend's roommate bet 500 bucks on the Ravens at the beginning of the season at something like 28-1 odds, and ended up winning 10k last night when it was all said and done.

    I need to start a gambling problem.

    Not a bad bet! The Ravens were a solid pre-season pick this year, I think. They really should have been in the SuperBowl the year before, too.

    So, Community, that was okay. Slightly worried about future episodes though.

    I've been wondering about how series have handled departures of showrunners/ writers, and it seems to me that there are often two problems.

    The characters are no longer as nuanced as before.

    The new writers are sometimes afraid of doing anything new. So it's just variations of what we've seen before.

    I saw a few episodes of community, did not like it, thought it's very distasteful

    Why should I want to make anything up? Life's bad enough as it is without trying to invent any more of it.

    Actually, I'm really, really enjoying the stuff DC is putting out.
