We only have the last episode of Jessica Jones to watch, and it has been a pretty fun show.  I think they may have stretched out the plot a bit to fill out episodes, but overall, I like it.

I echo the thoughts here.  I even said while watching that the Carol-Morgan stuff was stupid.  This was underwhelming.

I saw a video on this attraction...  These are indeed replicas, not actual props.

What is the music behind that video?  Is that from one of the prequels or a video game?

Thanks for hooking us up!  You have definitely earned plenty of collecting karma, and if there's anything we recipients can do for you, don't hesitate to ask!

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Disney Buys LFL

Lucas has lost it in my opinion.  TPM and AOTC were boring movies.  If you are making a kids series, you don't talk about political disputes over trade routes in the opening credits.

A major problem with the prequels is that he ignored the OT.  Kenobi states that Yoda trained him.  Sure you can retcon it into Yoda trained all the younglings or that it is easier to tell Luke that Yoda trained him instead of telling Luke that Yoda trained the guy who trained the guy who trained him, but he deliberately ignored that link to bring in Qui Gon as Kenobi's master.   Leia's memory of her mother is laughable as well.  The whole three seconds that she saw her does not a memory make, regardless of the Force. 

This X 10000.  I don't hate the prequels as much as most, but there were so many lost opportunities.  For example, the Falcon should have been in there, somewhere, and Kenobi should have been on it.  Fans went CRAZY when they saw the first shots of the Falcon sets for TFA, and even more so for the appearance in the trailer.  For a guy so keen on compositing a shot to call back to a scene from a previous movie, Lucas is totally tone-deaf sometimes.

Ward and May's relationship is complicated and intriguing . One of the hilights of the show.  It is the Sky/Daisy character I can't stand. She's hot but dull and a really crap actress.

I'll go you one better, Pete. The portrayal of C-3PO in AotC makes Jar Jar look like genius. How they totally got that character so wrong is mind boggling.

So far, it looks like there will be deals aplenty on BF for the new consoles.  Both XB1 and PS4 seem to be going for ~$300 with varying perks depending on the store.  One store has the WiiU at $250.

I think the "mid-season finale" ends with Glenn at the gates.  Season picks back up with the happy reunion of Glenn and Maggie only to find out that Glenn has been bitten and he will die as Maggie tells him she's preggers.

I thought the episode was great.  The theme of being in one's own prison was fantastic, complete with Morgan actually locking the Wolf in his "prison."  I think that Morgan's character arc will be very much like Eastman's, and at the end he will be sacrificed to bring Rick's humanity back.

I don't love the idea that a "chip" made the clones obey Order66.  I liked the idea that this was always part of their "programming" by the cloners.  I was further evidence that Palpatine was playing a LONG game.

I had $ at TRU expiring so I stopped by today and they put out a new case of 2-packs so I got bb8 set for $2 and change. :)  Been a busy weekend.

Has anyone else noticed that these boxed figures can easily be opened, and then resealed?  It is a MOMC nightmare.
