TV Thread: Mayweather/McGregor, Game of Thrones, Twin Peaks The Return (FINALLY!), MTV VMAs, etc.

Some big TV stuff this weekend.

The "Video Music Awards," anachronistically still given out by a channel that no longer plays music videos, were an orgy of anti-Trump virtue signalling.

Did you see it? I sure didn't. But, it happened.

Any of you watch the Mayweather/McGregor fight? I didn't. Wanted to, but conked out early. Some of you must have: It only made $700 million at about $100 a rent.

I didn't watch it, but apparently it was a good fight. McGregor, I read, actually won the first three rounds, but Mayweather used his boxing skills to make sure he didn't give McGregor that one Golden Punch that could win the fight for him, and wound up winning in the tenth round on a TKO.

Vox advised everyone that they should not watch the fight because it would be terrible. And racist. (Yes, really.)

You know, when you want to know about sports, combat arts, or anything manly at all -- Vox is your go-to source.

Incidentally, there may have been some code embedded in the feed to help track down people who were illegally streaming it.

I won't get into Game of Thrones or Twin Peaks because anyone who cares actually watched it and knows what the deal is.

Caution: It's pretty much impossible to speak about the latter two without giving away spoilers so if you haven't seen them yet, maybe just skip this thread until later.
