Another Reason to Like Nick Offerman

I am a big fan of Offerman's character of Ron Swanson on Parks and Recreation...

In the most recent issue of Entertainment Weekly, he contributed some comments regarding some movies. Below is part of his excerpt regarding 'Highlander':
Highlander was very exciting to us as teenagers. It came out in 1986. My Dungeons & Dragons compatriots and I all traipsed into Joliet [Ill.] to see it. And it was, and still is, the greatest film about becoming a man that I’ve ever seen. For Sean Connery alone — one of the most magnificent specimens of manhood we’ve seen in this modern age.

An article featuring someone who was upset with HBO

An article featuring a statement by someone who was upset that HBO showed the killing of a wolf and a pregnant woman in the most recent episode of AGOT...he said he was cancelling his subscription because of it.

Best quote from the comment thread:
Joe Concha is ok with paying to view  constant beheadings and cut throats, incest, prostitutes used for target practice, torture, slaughtered babies, beheaded horses, a guy who has sex with his daughters and gives his babies to creatures in the forest, rape, faces melted off by gold, little farm boys burned to death, a child thrown to his death from a tower, an old man kept in a crate by a eunuch, a 12 year old still nursing, and let's not forget pedophilia." 
But wants to cancel his HBO because a dog was killed behind closed doors and out of the viewer's sight.
