Reasonable DiscussionsHere’s your weekly open thread. Thank you for making our site’s community vibrant, intelligent, and fun!

Two very different Conans top this week's episode: First, Conan (the O'Brien) is struggling with poor ratings for his new show—but does it matter? Conan (the Barbarian) is a terrible movie, and we offer some thematically similar alternatives. Also: Breaking Bad is ending in 16 episodes—does that deadline help or hurt the show? And of course Extracurricular Activities, various bons mots, hashtag shenanigans, and more.
