This past week was an OK episode. At least it was better than that terrible Beth episode. 

I don't get why Abraham's family would abandon him after killing those guys that raped them. I don't read the comics, anyone has insight into that?

I think actually seeing someone beat multiple people to death with their fists long after they've stopped being a threat might make some people uneasy about what they're capable of.  Might have made more sense if the wife and kids were remotely able to defend themselves from zombies or scavengers, but they literally weren't going to make it 20 feet without Abe. Personally, I want someone like that around when the world turns to crap, but I think that's the gist of what they were trying to sell us.

Man, you had me right up until those garbage TDs for Kelvin Benjamin.  At least you still have a teeny tiny shot at the playoffs.   ;)

I had no idea TRU was so PC about their figures.  I guess this is a good time to place a few calls about the disgusting flesh-baring. underwear dolls they call "Wrestling Figures."

We went to see Big Hero 6 this weekend... no surprise, all four kids loved it.  I loved it too.  Great story, very fun.  A lot more fun than a lot of summer blockbusters I've seen in fact.  Boys are hoping for a DisneyXD series as they want more Baymax...

We checked it out yesterday as well - both kids thought it was amazing.  It's really well done in every aspect.  Good story, great visuals, but also really funny with perfect comedic timing.  They didn't overdo anything, which could have been really easy in a film like this.  Sammy put it on par with Guardians of the Galaxy, so definitely worth checking out.

I'll bring it to the next MN group meeting so you guys can check it out in person...

That might be creepy having all those guys putting their hands all over your body... even if it's a toy.

That was wholly unnecessary.

Images of ML Allfather build-a-figure wave

I want almost all of these figures.  Thor, Hawkeye, and the Witch look amazing.  Looks like two different sets of arms, so you could avoid getting Machine Man or Sentry...Tough to decide between two really weak characters.  I might decide based on the arms vs. the figure.   :P

I couldn't resist getting Aliens S1 and a few Terminator figures.  I thought they were cool at first, but might return the Terminators - $20 for two dollar-store type figures doesn't feel like as good of a deal as it did when I bought them.

Can't get over how good the likeness is.  I gotta get one of these.

Have to go with Tom Brady this year

For?    ???

Not a surprise that AP gets off easy.

Yeah, but I was glad to see he didn't get immediately reinstated by the NFL.  Vikings seem to be doing well in the run game without him - I'm not sure they'll want him back.

I've had the opposite luck this year, fortunately.  I have a winning record despite scoring fewer points than points against and I think I might have the lowest overall points scored in the league at this point.  It has definitely been a year for close games though.  Out of my last five, win or lose, the spread has been only about 10 points or less.  I'd actually have one more win if not for a 2pt loss to Patrick back in week #4.

I heard last night that he's recently changed his tone on that and would consider an IM 4 if the story line is good.  He seems to revel in being Iron Man from his social media posts, so I hope he comes back for more.

I'd love to see a solo Hawkeye film.  He's got a number of solo books to pull from and the current comic focusing on what Hawkeye does when he's not an avenger is excellent source material.  As a guy without crazy super powers, there's a lot more opportunity to character build versus the non-stop action we get from most of the Avengers.  Truth be told though, I'd love to see Phase 4 be a "West Coast Avengers" storyline where Hawk creates a sister team out in California.  I thought I heard mention of Mockingbird, so maybe they're already going this route.  In the comic, Stark handed the IM gig over to Rhodey, so Black-Iron-Man and later War Machine were a big part of that team. Would be a cool way to keep the Avengers going if RDJ and the other big names want a break or just limit their involvement to cameos akin to Sam Jackson's Fury.

Jeff - that number of Superhero movies is pretty insane.  I'm going to need a separate savings account just for Marvel & DC based movies.  It is crazy to see everyone jumping on the bandwagon, but that's a credit to all the great work done these past few years with the Avengers flicks.  I can't see every one of these being major hits, so it will be interesting to see what succeeds and what flops.

Anyone else hate the new numbering/titles being used for the team movies?  Why can't we just have Avengers 3 and Avengers 4?  Pretty soon we're going to have Avengers 5 Part I Chapters 1-3...

Looks good, hope we get some Thanos though.

I bet we get some, just not much.  I thought I heard that he was lined up to be the main baddie for #3, so we should have another wave of Marvel flicks building up to it in 2018.  I hope Downey changes his mind about playing Iron Man for more flicks...
