  • Just finished listening to the podcast; I think the hosts got the same amount of enjoyment out of the episode that I did.  In hindsight the episode marks a turning point in the series.  There will still be stupid stuff in episodes but the show is ba…
  • I'm glad others are enjoying it as much as I did.  The first five issues of the comic (basically the story in the movie) are collected as The Old Guard Vol. 1: Opening Fire (USD5.99 on Kindle/Comixology).  It's a bit better than the movie in some wa…
  • Some pros: You would have access to a near-infinite amount of games.  Depending on specs, you could also have a PC capable of making games or digital art/music if any of that interests you. Some cons: It's somewhat to a lot more complex and expensiv…
  • TBINKANSAS said: The point is that the entire concept of The Whisperers substantially contradicts the first eight seasons of the show and what it's told us about Walkers. The idea that these people can just put masks over their faces and "fo…
  • Freddy said: Started season 9 tonight as an act of solidarity. Not even a quarter of the way through the first episode and the nonsense has already reared its ugly, poor written head. Like I said upthread, I recommend starting with s9e8 if…
  • I think it depends on the writing and the actor as far as who could lead TWD.  I bet a lot of people (not me) would like to see a reluctant Negan in charge, fighting his inner demons to not return to his old style of leadership. Only killing off Ca…
  • TBINKANSAS said: I've heard A. Ron say he's heard the show has gotten better. I don't know who's telling him that because for my money it's worse than ever.I don't know who is telling him either, but I and the critics agree (for once) that seas…
  • [Removed; didn't want a jokey comment about what music would fit the scene misconstrued as a comment on the OP's entry]
  • j0n1c4 said: [....] but hey, at least he didn’t rape the girl robots, so that proves there’s “good” in this world... Giving the writers more credit than they deserve, let's speculate that action got Caleb on Dolores' "good" list.  Then w…
  • Alkaid13 said: I’m not speaking of objective show quality though I’m speaking of what the basics of the show are. TWD is basically the same show it is now that it was in S5 that it was in S3. If you weren’t a fan of the earlier seasons then S…
  • If someone hasn't watched seasons they crap on, what percentage accuracy should we assign to their views? ;-)
  • WaidHere said: While TWD is still hot garbage [....] I bailed watching after Season 5 [....] You're certainly entitled to your opinion about seasons you haven't watched.  Others may disagree. https://www.rottentomatoes.com/tv/the_walking…
  • The movie had one big problem for me Would mercenaries really risk all their lives and a helicopter on their own dime to rescue the son of someone who double crossed them? It would have made a better ending instead to have the double cross happen…
  • The longer this season goes, the more I wonder why Dolores doesn't just print a copy of Maeve's daughter after pulling her back from the sublime and give her to Maeve.

  • TWD still usually has some dumb stuff every episode, and episodes can vary in quality, but starting with season 9 episode 8*, TWD has gone back to being a show I enjoy.  There's been an increase in classic (as in good and proven, not old and tired) …
  • Don't bring a knife to a drone fight. Did the EMP wake up everyone in suspended animation, or kill them?  Also, the Westworld universe has suspended animation, no biggie. The overall conflict between Maeve and Dolores seems increasingly forced.  Wh…
  • Maybe Westworld will move to being made the way The Mandalorian is made to keep costs in line with viewership.
  • fidoz said: No shame is punting. I watched and really enjoyed it all but I can see why someone would be bored by the show. I had to give up on Westworld earlier this season. I realized it was never going to be the kind of show I wanted it to …

  • JaimieT said: Yeah, I think I'm out then. Thanks for letting me know. The only bad news is watching a show you don't enjoy!  Maybe have it on while doing something else?  Except for episode 5, that one's worth your full attention.  It's an i…

  • JaimieT said: I'm gonna watch this show, but I'm also gonna fucking kill someone for how unnecessarily slow the pilot was. I have seven more episodes of bad news for you on that front.

  • Just one measly riot control unit, so I can give this episode only 98 out of 100.
  • manhattnik said: 'Also, I am guessing the whole “dead mouse” thing was an attempt to scan? and build a simulated simulacra of the mouse if it hadn’t died, as, what, a step to recreating a real living mouse? Which is kinda sorta what happened to Lil…

  • Despite the slowness, I was enjoying the show until the ending, which had almost exactly the same "isn't that nice" unrealistically happy ending of Westworld season 2. Lily and Forest leave their physical bodies behind and have their minds uploade…

  • I've watched the first ~5 episodes and to me it seems to be a trashy soap opera with a heist background instead of a tense heist drama/thriller.  Nothing wrong with that, of course, but not what I was looking for.

  • fidoz said: However, the only real but huge issue I had with the series is Lily. I never bought her arc. There was nothing to inform us that she had the strength or fortitude to stand up against powers well beyond her. IDK, I've known 3-4 …

  • I've watched the final episode three times and it's the same each time.  Am I doing something wrong?

  • Did the Genre drug trip serve any purpose?
