I just think there's no real impact.  I see bald white dudes every day.  Lex was invented back when it was considered shameful to be without hair.  A sign of disease or old age.  That Superman caused it was a big factor in Lex's obsession.

Now, it's like "Eh..."

Reminds me of the Seinfeld issue where Elaine was dating a guy who shaved his head.  Jerry was like "Is he from the FUTURE??"

Yes, Jerry - he was.  He was from 2009.

Don't they have a pretty stout supply of ammo?  I remember racks of rifles and a freezer full of handguns, but I don't remember seeing ammo boxes.  I think if there was any hint of a shortage the quartermaster would stop handing it out.

Russo Brothers set to direct Infinity War

Can't argue with the quality of Winter Soldier, so I think the franchise is in good hands.

Sasha was looking at the crowd rush to see the fight.

I think the loose limbs are somehow associated with that truck full of torsos they ran into earlier in the season.  I'd guess they're trying to weaponize them somehow, but I can't imagine how being limbless would make them effective.  Maybe they fill a pit with them and toss in enemies?

Doesn't make sense at all how Rick's lost his ****, but I expect a lot of people are going to suffer as a result of it.

Actually, vampires have very little to do with Preacher (other than his best mate being a vampire - a classical one allergic to sun and drinking blood).  The main story is about a disillusioned minister who gets possessed by the offspring of an unnatural celestial coupling, which grants him the power of command.  Basically anything he says, you do.  And if you piss him off, he might command you to count every grain of sand on a beach.  He and his pals decided to go and find God, encountering all manner of insanity along the way.  It was a rip-roaring yarn.

I wouldn't call this casting "against type."  All I really recall of Tulip was that she was a junkie, abrasive, and competent.

So last night's reveal was pretty big.  I was certain Mockingbird and Mac were working for Talbot.  But it turned out they're working for the "real" SHIELD.  Pretty clever way, IMO, to have SHIELD as a viable player in Age of Ultron (and a legitimate "secret" agency to boot).  Not looking forward to seeing how the TV squad reacts when they find out they've been a decoy for the past year.

Ruth Negga is half Irish.  Is the fact that she isn't blonde really going to kill the series for you?

Preacher female lead cast

I'm a big fan of her in SHIELD.  It'll be interesting to see if she can pull off a character who's less stable.

I'm not sure if anyone else watches The Flash (which is the best comic book series on TV right now, IMO)... but is it as painfully obvious to everyone else that all the huge reveals and events from last night's episode will be reversed by the very convenient time travel event?

I could see Nicholas lying about what happened to get Glenn and Eugene in trouble.  Deflect blame for Noah.  That could put Alexandria and Rick's group at odds.

Another episode of which I wasn't a big fan.

Carol gets snuck-up on by a fat cookie-seeking kid?  Rick ready to pop a cap in some physician's ass so he can get some?  Daryl becoming the least suspicious of the core because some dude likes horses?

I get Rick going darker, and that's an interesting turn, but the rest of them becoming incompetent this quickly just doesn't sit well with me.

The comic book Inhumans (who we presume live on the other side of the moon) aren't who the SHIELD humans turn into.  I don't think all the powered individuals we'll see are based on characters from the comics.  Seems like they have some creative freedom on that front.
