Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Ye Olde Nintendo
« on: January 14, 2017, 05:44 PM »
My wife and I decided because we haven't been able to find the NES Classic for Christmas that we will try to get one for ourselves in lieu of Valentine's Day presents this year.  So here's to hopping Nintendo finally pulls their head out of their collective asses and will actually get a good number of these into the pipeline.

I didn't have a problem with this episode.  I was glad to finally see them jump from place to place and allow me to see everyone, and not just focus on one group per episode.

It was also nice to see Rick regrow his cajones and start making a plan...even better when Daryl handed him his beloved Colt Python.  I've hung on all season, although very critically, in the hopes of seeing the group back together and forming a plan to rid themselves of Negan.

So it was all brought back together in a nice fashion.  I have no worthwhile complaints about that episode.

However, I do think it makes sense that the other members of the Saviors like that they have a steady supply of goods coming to them from other communities and don't know that if they overthrow Negan that the other communities will fear the new leader enough to do so.

I've thought of that, but also wonder why a person would subjugate themselves to that kind of abuse.

Wow...Negan is a bad guy...haven't we covered that?

I guess this episode was marginally better than the past 5, but not by much.

I see Negan's people and I keep thinking, they can't stand the guy, why not just overthrow him.  It's not that hard and they have the numbers.  If he died, they have supplies already and a network to continue gathering. 

I loved seeing Rick for like 5 minutes.  Wow, does he have much of a role this season?

Michonne/Rosita are redeeming simply because they aren't taking any crap and rolling over to die.

The best thing from that episode was it didn't go on and on and on with Negan showing how much of a bad person he is.  He wasn't in it, and I didn't have to listen to him.

Other than that...I wonder if it did anything for the story.

Did anybody else find that episode to be mostly craptastic?

I understand the need to build the suspense and fill in the backstory, but good lord this is getting to remind me of season 2.  No action, a lot of talking and drama, a little snippet of something here and there, and then a cliffhanger.  I hate to sit and complain, but the point has been pretty well drilled home that Negan and his guys are bad, egotistical, and rule with an iron fist.  Time to push the story forward.  It's no wonder the ratings have been falling off the past few weeks.

That episode was boring as hell and while it may have built a few things for later on, it was still like pulling teeth to watch.  I can't say it really got me amped up for next week.

JDM is incredible as he plays out the role of Negan, and Lincoln is still doing an incredible job at going from extreme to extreme.  But, I don't really buy Rick bailing on everything after he has completely dug in against other baddies and in one way or another handed them their ass.

In the end, I was really disappointed with that episode.

And if enough people feel that way, this show doesn't have more than a season or two left...

Yep.  I'm assuming many people watching the show are like me in that they wouldn't leave it on the DVR if it were a truly gripping show.  The writing isn't that great.  The acting is cardboard.  And the story pace is very slow.  With that in mind, why would I race to watch?

Rob, I think that nails down what I've thought overall.  I keep watching just to get my zombie fill, but even that is fading.

I'll probably just stick with it to see what ends up happening, but unlike TWD, this gets put on the DVR and watched as time presents itself.

I wasn't terribly impressed with any new revelations.  However, I wasn't disappointed either.  Travis finally realized the way things are and took care of some business.  The plot still moved at a snail's pace, but it did offer some hope that Season 3 will have some good stuff.

Why haven't these idiots started digging through homes looking for useful bits of...I don't know...guns, weapons, bottled water, food, etc...  I know they're in a hotel and all, but dear god they are dumb.

Too many stupid people.  Too many non-decisions and too much BS.  This show drives me nuts with how you think something is going to happen, something builds, and then nothing happens.

Dear god it looked like FTWD was going somewhere, then it did, but nothing happened.  Two more episodes to hope something happens.  Seriously, is anything going to happen?

As for Z Nation, I'm about halfway through the episode and I love the hokiness.  It doesn't take itself too seriously, and is for the most part an enjoyable zombie show.

Well, I felt this week was a pretty "decent" episode.  I say that loosely.  However, the mom/daughter relationship looks to have potential.  Nick looks like he's getting his head screwed on and could go somewhere cool.  So we'll see.

Maybe the writers are finally figuring this out and will make a decent show out of this yet...I'm being optimistic.

I did not realize he was the host of that show.  Damn I feel old.

I didn't make it five minutes into Talking Dead. An hour of people talking about a boring episode of a series with a weak concept.

Good summary!!

I can't stand Talking Dead.  Chris Hardwick is a boring star struck homer and is terrible to listen to.  I fast forward through that show just to watch the sneak peak of next week.
