  • Still not sure what your _complaint_ is WRT the mid-season finale.  You wanted the show to not heighten interest in what happens in the next half of the season? As far as the new big bad, I don't think you will find it fits "the tired formula we've…
  • hitmy said: Essentially, we have a classic "SUPER MEGA CLIFFHANGER" that smacks of recent season. And also have whats looks to be another BIG BAD, which kind of falls into the tired formula we've seen so far. What cliffhanger?  They literally…
  • It's sad to see Jesus go but I can understand why his character wasn't much used. When you have a character who can take on 3x the amount of foes using fancy moves that a normal character can...you need 3x the amount of stunt people and a …
  • redlancer said: I just wished they had waited more than 1 scene before the reveal. I would have taken an episode of them freaking out over whether or not the walkers are becoming sentient before figuring it out. A scene of them getting chased…
  • Michelle said: She's talking to the others like she's the HBIC, but who appointed her such?  That aside, I'm really interested to see what happens now that [ spoiler ] [...].  My exact words at the end were "ohhhh shit....oh no". From the…
  • Angela Kang saves TWD.  Best episode of TWD in years, maybe in nine years.  The group finding, fighting, and figuring out the [...] was solid entertainment.  My only issue is the lighting of some of the scenes with Daryl, Jesus, Eugene, and Aaron on…
  • redlancer said: They seem to be pulling off the Whisperer's in a legitimately creepy way and am interested to see that story progress. Not looking forward to 7 episodes of backfilling story behind an arbitrary forward time jump. If they were goi…
  • Unsurprisingly, traveling to Hilltop takes longer by wagon than Winnebago.  I thought it was a pretty good TWD episode, which makes the dumb stuff ("I'll sneakily mess with this priceless violin in the dark while traveling with people who don't trus…
  • Nancylyn said: As for little RJ, I’ll chalk it up to bad casting. The child looked too young but maybe when we finally see him dressed and in the light and interacting he’ll turn out to be 5years old.  Or maybe the show runners are more co…
  • On balance, a good episode.  The council meeting was painfully drawn out and I hope Judith takes a back seat for the rest of the season.  But an episode where the plot is meaningfully advanced and people go places and do things?  More of that, pleas…
  • SomeBiscuit said: Seriously. It was so terrible that it actually wrapped back around into being some kind of deranged genius. This episode was like Z Nation without the fun parts. -- My big question about the Rick Grimes movies is, are they …
  • Michelle said: Gimple just confirmed that this is the end of Rick Grimes on TWD.  But it's not the end of his story,  They're creating AMC feature films and his continuing story will be part of the AMC feature films.  But he won't be back on …
  • ZoSo said: Pretty convenient that there was a 20 foot deep pit, with a completely level bottom just off the side of the road, and there wasn't a single walker already in it. Most walkers avoid pits, that's why the characters on the show ra…
  • It's unfortunate that the quality did drop off after the first three episodes sent to reviewers early. Rick run through with rusty rebar...really? Even if he gets rescued from the walkers he's gonna die a horrible death from infection.Nah, Enid will…
  • Doctor_Nick said: I guess we’re supposed to just pretend the Kingpin doesn’t get put into some super high security solitary the moment he cuts a deal with the government, right? Yep, because in this comic book world Kingpin can predict wha…
  • Dare I say the first 3 episodes are some of the best of the series?[...] three good episodes in a row [...] These three episodes were sent to reviewers early, so they may be ringers.  If the next three maintain real forward momentum and don't becom…
  • I didn't care for DD season 1 and 2 for various reasons, but this season impressed me.  They turned down the gore and did a good job in a number of areas.  Fisk was shown to be a dangerous villain, Dex made a good secondary bad guy, there were a num…
  • Everyone should watch the final ~10 minutes of Iron Fist season 2. The setup for Jessica Jones season 3 has me hopeful it will be much better than JJ season 2. I guess don't be sad Luke Cage and Iron Fist are cancelled, be happy Mike Colter and Jess…
  • The first three episodes were made available to some reviewers early so I would expect any quality decline to happen after them. Are various deaths going to make Daryl more inclined to stick around?  Can't see the show splitting into him and a few o…

  • YMMV but I've enjoyed listening to The Walking Dead 'Cast and Sistah Speak The Walking Dead.
  • hitmy said: nah, this "make you strong" dirty crazy lady is super-meh in my book. more of the same morgalizing stuff. The romance between cowboy guy and blond haired lady is actually good though. Martha's not particularly interesting (oth…
  • I found it a vast improvement over Iron Fist s1; it was actually watchable and had a good plot.  I found it was about 1/2 filler, though, so keep the FFWD button handy.  If you aren't planning to watch this season, at least watch the last ~10 minute…
  • Credit where it's due, the last couple of episodes have been free of much of what went wrong in s4.  Some of the situations have been interesting, characters different, etc.  It's possible the show runners might be figuring out how to run a zombie s…
  • BBC Global News Podcast; can't recommend it enough.
  • Glad companies seem to be developing processes to investigate accusations.
  • Meta: Pixie Davies (Sophie) and Billy Jenkins (Sam) are amazing.  I'm not sure where the show is going; feels a bit like they've taken a wrong turn. How does adding "synth blood" equal more than an enhanced human, not a synth or any real kind of…

  • The Wirecutter is a big fan of TCL: https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-tv/ For your price point, have you considered a projector?  If you aren't watching a lot of 4K content, it's nice to have a screen measured in feet, not inches: https://thewi…
