Watto's Junk Yard / Re: The Walking Dead
« on: November 16, 2015, 09:34 AM »
I'm more in McMetal's camp than the others... 

I didn't really care for this episode.  I also I didn't really understand what was going on with the episode.  I get it that it must be a "bridge" to something else but it seems like there will be two different groups to face - the Wolves and now this new group.   I haven't read in the comics much past when Abraham joins the team so I have no idea what could be coming but this episode left me scratching my head.

I didn't watch Talking Dead last night.  Did that shed any light on it?

I can't believe Darryl will go that long without having his crossbow though!

I'm not buying it...yet. I still think Nicholas fell on top of him.
That was my first thought too... Okay second thought after "oh crap"... But I'm not sure how even then he could get away.

Anybody have any clue who the Inhuman hunter is modeled after?  The character wasn't familiar to me at all.

I read somewhere this was Lash who was also an Inhuman in the comics.

Um...... so........ meh.........

That was my general reaction as well.  I liked the three "zombie scenes" but the rest was a snoozer.   Frankly, the most interesting part for me was the montage clip of coming this season at the end.  Show still has some promise but it wasn't as gripping as original walking dead premier.

I have two relatively new machines each running Windows 8.  I hate it so I'll probably look to do the upgrade soon... I'll be curious to see how long it takes all of you to get it up and running.

Well after 7 snoozer episodes in my opinion the last 3 were outstanding.

The Red Woman showing up just before he's killed is the only thing leaving the door open to me... we certainly all know by now that this series isn't afraid of killing off major characters, I'd assumed Snow would be different, but at this point who the hell knows, especially with the show having out run the books.

I'm with you guys on Jon.  I can't believe he's Dead dead.  It seems very suspect that Melisendre just left Stannis's side because of the mutiny and getting shrugged off.  She needed to be back at the Castle Black for a reason (since she was still there in the books).  I'd be surprised if Jon doesn't get the Red God treatment... 

I also never thought for a moment that Sansa and Theon were dead.  If they wanted to commit suicide there were fair easier ways to do it... they were trying to get away. 

I didn't think about the Stannis angle...   Maybe he could still be alive. 

I assumed that Myrcella bought it... no reason to believe the poison wouldn't have killed her.

I also never considered that Dany may join with a new Khalasar.    Interesting to consider that though. 

Not mentioned yet... I loved Cersei's walk of absolution.   I heard that the showrunners got a lot of grief filming that scene from the local governments.

Moment of Silence for Count Dooku and Saruman.   He lived a full and amazing life and has hundreds of acting credits but he'll always be these two characters for me.

The Wights (aka Army of the Dead) seem very much like they're mindless and under the control of the While Walkers.  But I get the sense that the White Walkers are very much aware and in control of what they're doing.

I agree... I didn't pick that up that distinction until last night's episode.  Makes the White Walkers even more intriguing to me now.

So was that giant Wun Wun?  You had to love the line he said to Dolorous Ed!  And those were definitely some of the fastest zombies I've seen since Zach Snyder's Dawn of the Dead.  Is it me, or does the Night's King look like an icy Darth Maul?

I think it is Wun Wun...  I thought I heard Tourmand call him that as they were running out at the end.

Until this episode, I never thought about the White Walkers having a "consciousness" and just sort of thought of them as zombie-like killing machines.   And yea... definitely had a Darth Maul vibe.

Best episode of the season by a mile.  I enjoyed the scenes with all the major players, especially Tyrion/Dany/Jorah , Sansa/Theon, Cersei, and the whole Hardhome Scene at the end.    Really great stuff this week.  Sort of like books 4 and 5... plodding along all season until we get all the juicy bits at the end.

As for me, well, I didn't hate it, but didn't love it either.  It was a good movie for a rainy Sunday, but probably not the kind of movie I'll watch again on DVD or cable or whatever.

(not quite the ringing endorsement you were probably hoping for, Brian :()

I saw it too and felt very similarly.  Liked it, didn't love it.  It was refreshing to get a movie with an original storyline (as opposed to an adapted story) but it certainly didn't blow me away.

Loved that Cold Play Bit... There is an extended version of Peter Dinklages's song that they previewed before the red nose event.

I enjoyed tonight's episode... It's sort of refreshing to have so many divergent stories from the book now. Keeps me guessing as opposed to trying to remember if that's what happened.  Big fan of the Sand Snakes now  ;)

Overall, I think this season has been a real snoozer... sort of like the majority of books 4 and 5 so I guess I shouldn't be surprised.   I still think there is too much dilution of the multiple characters and their storylines; however, at least the last couple of episodes have been a bit more streamlined in the character stories. 

I do constantly find myself checking with the internet sources for departures from the book (so that I don't think I'm going crazy and mis-remembering!)

At this point with the departures from the books, I'm almost looking forward to next season when all the stories will be fresh and I can just sit back and watch without comparing to the source material!
