  • I thought it was fine, but it felt more heavily aimed at a younger audience than the episodes in S1.  Early days, of course.
  • awookiee said: Yeah I just rewatched that part and on 2nd watch it is clear she grazes his head. Still not sure how that would knock a person out but it's much better than what I made it out to sound like. Still doesn't change my feelings abo…
  • awookiee said: Specifically about this past Sunday's episode (#6 I believe). How did Gaetano not die from getting shot in the back of the head. When he is tied up it almost looks like it was just a graze but then how did he get knocked uncon…
  • Miller's CrossingWatched because of the discussion on the Fargo podcast.  The main character was a little too cool for school for any tension to build up about his repeated interactions with the same group of characters with conflicting goals. O Bro…
  • On another forum people were complaining about episode 2's corridor (why didn't they just close the gate and kill the zombies inside) but I think there were too many zombies and they would have come through the weak points in the corridor if they di…
  • Andrew said: The last episode seemed to be a microcosm of everything that was weak about the show to begin with; problems with the narrative, forced character motivation, really obvious, ham-fisted writing, and trying to cram too much into to…
  • Teresa from Concord said: Storefront’s daughter did not have superpowers. Well, Storefront could only encase criminals in giant paper or plastic bags, so not much in the way of powers to inherit. (I know it was just an autocorrect typo…
  • I keep expecting to see Tic and Leti driving through town, arguing and pointing at a map.
  • Hunkulese said: Kind of silly that the show was too high risk because of the wrestling, but actual wrestling still hasn't missed a show.  Look at it from the perspective of a potential lawsuit: Netflix has a lot more money than the wrestl…
  • Thanks for fixing the issue!
  • asmallcat said: I don't think it's scientology redux that has the head popping super, since they would likely use them on the ex-members who try and turn against them rather than just doing smear campaigns.  I like the idea but wouldn't th…
  • It's cinematic plumbing. Bending the handle made the handle indicate the opposite of what it was supposed to, so the handle pointed to filtered/clean water when it was actually letting in unfiltered water.
  • I'm wondering if it's the church/cult which has the super who can pop heads, though I guess the more likely organization would be Vought.  Both find value in supers and want to use them for their own ends.
  • blue_sleeve said: With these extended seasons and spin-offs, what is everyone's thoughts about the potential movies? I mean, the Daryl and Carol roadshow could be what potentially kicks off the movies. But assuming that is not the case, would…
  • Can't wait for the Daryl and Carol show "Bike and Bake" Overall it seems a smart move: 1) Spin off a show with the two most popular remaining characters allowing them to continue some continuity for returning characters, story arcs, etc. 2) Have an…
  • Doctor_Nick said: Christina paid off the real estate agent as well.  Though it does seem like a plan that requires amazing knowledge of Leti's circumstance and family relationship... Yes, there's the scene with Christina and the real est…
  • Sure, Christina could get the money to Leti, but then trusting Leti would buy that particular house is a little much.  OTOH, Christina could have bought that house and been seen around town, so Tic and Leti would follow her to the house and been put…
  • "Lovecraft Country is executive produced by showrunner Misha Green along with J.J. Abrams, Jordan Peele, Bill Carraro, Yann Demange, Daniel Sackheim, and David Knoller." LC's success or failure is more on Misha Green's shoulders than Peele's.
  • After the second episode did anyone else have this in their head: Giant steps are what you take Whitey's on the moon I hope my legs don't break Whitey's on the moon We could walk forever Whitey's on the moon We could live together Whitey's on, White…
  • "Listen to Ashley C. Ford and Lovecraft Country writer Shannon Houston as they share their thoughts on the ties between the horror genre and Black culture and explore how the show’s themes connect to contemporary social issues." https://www.hb…
  • The car being totaled and then being largely restored does square with "magic" though.
  • Did episode two wrap up the Ardam storyline?  Is episode three going to be the same characters but a different horror (besides the continuing horror of racism)?
  • Was this covered in a Bald Move podcast?  Given their deep knowledge of Groundhog Day, I think their take would be particularly interesting.
  • 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…
