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.

Hey, guess what's back tonight??

 :D

I watched and...listened...and watched...and waited for something to happen...and then nothing exciting happened.

This is so much like Season 2 of TWD.

Cool.  I thought I had read it was going to be available in Netflix the day after it aired.  In this case, will it be released in a weekly basis or all at once?

Sucks because I'm not getting a streaming service for one show when I don't religiously watch anything except baseball and TWD.  Everything else sits on the dvr until I find time.

I'm being lazy right now.  Can anyone explain how the new series will work with Netfilx in the US?

I'm still in.  Although it is not priority watching.  I watched "almost live" last night simply because there wasn't anything else to watch.

Last night had potential, and then it went to crap...kind of like a bunch of episodes.  The entire thing with the barber talking to ghosts was stupid.  (You can tell how awesome it is when I don't know his name).

I have said it before, this show does have potential to be good.  But it is so ADHD and won't focus on anything in particular except the craziness of a couple of people.  It's a lot like Season 2 of TWD in that there is so much standing around, talking, and then something gets going, only to be picked up again the next week....and then to be let down because nothing really happened.

I guess I'll keep doing what I'm doing.  I'll watch when there is time and when there is nothing else to watch.

FWIW, I DVRd "Colony" from USA and have enjoyed it after two episodes.  I know that is not remotely related to the subject at hand, but it jumped into my head.

Interesting.  The Star Trek franchise has taken an interesting turn from space exploration to confrontation.  I hope the story for this one is good and not just a series of look what we can blow up.  Seriously, how many times can the Enterprise get tore up before somebody loses their job permanently?

I would certainly be interested, but I'm not going with a subscription service for one show.  I imagine there are a lot of people that think the same way.  However, lots of people are paying for Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc., so who knows how it will work out.

I watched Sunday's episode and it really wasn't bad.  They finally introduced some other characters and have finally created a real situation that has to be dealt with.  Again I go back to Season 2 of TWD and see it here.  It took a while for that season to get going and maybe this one finally is moving.  However, the characters are still a little stiff and haven't really hardened to the situation yet...except the druggie kid and the guy from Mexico.  Other than that, too many people still don't know what to do.

Finally got around to watching this last night...........

and.....

that's about it.....

Seriously, this season reminds me so much of Season 2 of TWD.  Nothing happens the entire show until the last couple of minutes and you are left wondering what is going on, but you really don't care because none of the characters are really interesting.  It seems our meth head figured out really quick how to walk with the zombies.  However, he started running through the herd and nothing happened to him.  When Rick and Glen started going through the herd in Season 1, if they moved too quick the zombies would key on them.

I'll stick with the show if for no other reason than there is nothing else I'm interested in watching yet.  However, it won't be like TWD where I will  have to watch that night.  I'll get to it when I get to it.

I didn't recall a gunshot...  but then again my ability to actively pay attention to this like I do TWD is like night and day, and I'm sure I drift in and out of consciousness during FTWD frequently.

You're not the only one.  The gunshot was as everyone was getting back on the boat.

I don't remember the airplane crash tie in.  For me, that must have been one of my frequent moments to zone out.

I just read FTWD has already gotten a Season 3 greenlight. 

I hope the acting and storyline improve dramatically in the next couple of episodes.

I was hoping for something....almost anything.  Ultimately I found it.

I felt like I was watching an episode of TWD Season 2 on the farm.  A lot of nothing happened, then something happened, but I didn't know what.  So I'll come back and see what kind of nothing happened that really isn't a big deal because it was nothing.
