Q. How do you make Mr. D. Spatchel, Esq. holler OH FUCK YEAH at the television screen when it's not baseball or wrasslin' or a show about, uh, ice cream or something?

A. Be Turner Classic Movies and show Day of the Jackal, Three Days of the Condor, Marathon Man and The Boys From Brazil back to back to back to back.

This is one of the best television nights I've had in a long, long, long, long time.

The best part of the film was when a call was being traced around New York City, and the machine that did it displayed a map of New York on a moving microfilm plate, and it looked just like a mechanical version of Google Maps.

It balanced out the futuristic credit card number typeface.

if I were to ever make such a list, 3 days of the condor would likely be in my top 25 greatest movies of all time.

Also, totally unrelated, but has anyone pointed this out to you?
