How? If they explained the entire plan before they did it you know it goes wrong. If they don't explain anything, then you know it will work out. Both of these suck.

So the best way to do it is have the plan explained while the plan is executed. This allows things to go wrong unexpectedly.

In the episode when Christopher becomes a made man. After he gets a call from Paulie to get ready and dress sharp, Adrianna is afraid it's a trap, and Christopher responds by telling her she's seen too many movies. Later on, when Christopher shows relief once they get to the place, it's Tony who tells Christopher that he's been watching too many movies. Michael Imperioli was in Goodfellas.

The montage in The Empty Hearse, where Watson's seeing patients. One comes in looking like Sherlock in disguise (specifically, he looks like Basil Rathbone in disguise from Hound of the Baskervilles) and is selling DVDs with titles taken from the Holmes story the episode is based on. Watson assumes it's Sherlock, but it turns out it's not.

That same episode also has a great bit OP would like where Sherlock says that Watson told him to "Fu--" and then a hard cut to Watson telling a patient to "Cough".

This actually is an ok lesson to tell, but not after you've just watched a 2 hour action movie of the protagonist murdering countless mooks.

The entire premise of the moral rings hollow when you combine it with the naturally high body count of an action movie, and yet they insist on only putting that concept into that genre.

Race relations are shit, I agree but I don't think you can blame Obama for a bunch of racist cops shooting first.

There aren't too many legit arguments for the failure of obamacare. Uninsured levels have dropped, the premiums for those of us already insured are rising more slowly than they ever have and I refuse to believe that the system is going to fail, although I don't have anything to back that belief up.

Besides the initial hike that fucked a lot of people out of their plans? Care to somehow back up this incredibly broad claim which I don't even know how you could come to?

It's set to if nothing is done. The young and healthy that were supposed to sign up and subsidize the old and sick aren't. If it isn't reformed or there is a huge spike of young healthy people signing up for it, it'll implode.
