  • pavlovsbell said: How weird. I just happened to search for a Good Place podcast earlier today and found this one: http://multiverseradio.ca/forkinbullshirt.html Good to know there's something to tide us over since we have to wait until J…
  • Coyote_Starrk said: (Plus, I think he's faking being sick so he can rescue Maggie's doctor, which would give him a reason to want to get into the sanctuary without the Saviors just immediately killing him.) Why would he continue faking bei…
  • gguenot said: Your sample size of anecdotal evidence is small. If I smear feces all over myself and don’t get sick the first 3 times but the 4th time I do, am I going to wonder if another agent other than the feces made me ill? edit/addition…
  • gguenot said: Gabriel had a ton of decaying and rotten flesh on him, it’s not farfetched to think that’s what go him sick. Well, I'll go as far as to say maybe we're supposed to accept that guts from multi-year-old zombies are toxic, but g…
  • joepinetree said: Also, the writers have zero faith in the audience if they have to explicitly discuss getting sick from guts the scene before Gabriel gets sick from guts. Except nobody in TWD or FTWD has gotten sick from wearing walker …
  • Felt like there was more time spent on each of: Micro complaining, Micro's family, drinking, and bashing a certain amendment and organization than The Punisher shooting bad guys. Call it The Origin of Micro with Special Guest The Punisher i…
  • Just FYI, there's a podcast about The Good Place: https://www.theincomparable.com/teevee/goodplace/
  • I think TWD had to fire all this ammo in eps 1 and 2 so they can go back to talking all the time in the remaining episodes.
  • toncica said: A few days ago I binge watched the second half of season 3 [...] and now I'm perplexed at how good it was. How is that possible? TWD continues to disappoint in all departments and the smaller spin-off reinvents itself and fixes …
  • KingKobra said: While I didn't mind the action, it seemed almost unconnected from last weeks action. So was this before or after what they did last week? Not only that, but we know they were looking for a weapons depot(s) (was it everyone loo…
  • Yes, it's nothing deep but it is enjoyable.  I'm not sure about the latest detective (Ardal O'Hanlon); maybe the writers have yet to figure out how to write him.
  • SomeBiscuit said: Season 4 is worrying though - the showrunner is leaving and being replaced by two new ones, and Gimple is joining as an executive producer. Can FTWD survive that kind of regime change and avoid falling into the same traps as…
  • I think Holden is supposed to come across as awkward.  For the show he seems deliberately modeled on (pre Benedict Cumberbatch) Sherlock Holmes.  Take the scene where he analyzes his GF for ex. Tench is the most interesting character for me.  You c…

  • Personally I thought the first season (a whole six episodes) was weak, but S2 and S3, while they had their ups and downs, are far superior to the last several seasons of TWD.  Even if you aren't crazy about the characters, it's hard to ignore how mu…
  • Here is how I would get rid of the need for the WWs to have a bunch of large chains on hand. Jon and the Dragon are in the water. Why not have the Dragon bring Jon out, but die before getting too far. Then Jon could escape, and the Dragon could eas…
  • But Jon isn't on Drogon, so there's no reason to think that killing Drogon would effect Jon being killed. If he kills Drogon, then the heroes climb off of Drogon and another dragon quickly swoops in and they climb on. Except for the giant fireball i…
  • Where exactly does a small band of Crastor's white walker spawn and a hundred thousand skeletons managed to find some 8 inch thick chains that are hundreds of feet long north of the Wall? Especially when we know the Children of the Forest didn't fo…
  • I wonder if LF is somehow intercepting the messages from Jon to Winterfell.  It's hard to tell with the clumsy writing, the last Sansa/Arya scene does seem like Sansa passed Arya's lie detector and they are on the same side again, even if Sansa do…
  • Presenting a wight will lend some legitimacy to Jon's claims. Even if it doesn't sway Cersei, it might change the minds of some of the remaining Southern lords.
  • Amazing episode.  One thing which bothered me about the episode, between the trick cart for the scorpion and Bran's wheelchair, is that they added a slight Steampunk feel to the show.  I've not read the books; maybe contraptions are more common in t…
  • I feel like I was the only person very underwhelmed by Neagan's appearance. I wasn't impressed either, but I seem to have a high bar where that's concerned from watching a lot of HK movies where the villians were demonstrably badass.  Either show me…
  • @lengmo The thing is that Rick is a sheriff from Georgia. He probably got a hard on for special weapons and tactics. @TheEconomist He's a small-town sheriff.  I got the impression Shane was the Soldier of Fortune reader of the two. I agree the char…
  • @AmandaG With the manpower the Saviors have, as well as the communication network [...] in addition to the seeming ability to constantly ambush even a badass like Daryl [....] The idea Rick & Co don't use scouts, hardly bother with comms when g…
  • So bat boy has the resources to mobilize all those people, move all those giant logs, etc. on short notice just to impress 50-odd people?  Why hasn't bat boy rebuilt more of civilization then?  I'm guessing season 7 is going to be all about bat bo…
  • A 15-round magazine fits inside the grip. Yeah, I am very aware of the 33-round magazine, but as I said in my original post, "...that held the 15-20rds she fired at those guys." Maybe I'm just missing your point, but 15 rounds does fit in a magaz…
  • She didn't have much room for the magazine that held the 15-20rds she fired at those guys. http://www.military-today.com/firearms/glock_18.jpg That's a 33-round magazine.  A 15-round magazine fits inside the grip.  And I'm sure someone, somewhere …
  • What kind of automatic weapon hides inside a jacket sleeve?  And boy, Carrol's a good shot! Glock 18, perhaps.  The state they're in and ones they've traveled through have many military bases, gun collectors, and (in VA) three-letter agencies.  Ri…
  • Some random thoughts: Now we know how Glenn will survive this time -- he'll pull a Eugene on Negan. I wish the show would skip right over the war with Negan (if next season ends with Negan in jail it's going to be a painfully slow season) and get …
  • It's definitely a powerful movie.  Been over a decade since I've seen it, but one little detail I remember is the size of the beer bottles. However for tearjerkers, nothing else I've seen compares with http://asianwiki.com/Failan
  • Overall liked the episode, but I felt the tone was too far towards the comedic.  I think the show works best with some action and some drama lightened with a bit of comedy. I don't know why they don't both just stay primarily at the compound (God k…
