I thought he said Morgan couldn't do it (kill him), and that he should have.

Yeah, that was my take.  Both the guys that recognized Morgan (First in the group fight, then the ambush guy in the home) were from last season, right?  Weren't they the hiker guys that had Morgan trapped, but he fought them off and stashed them alive in a car?  I think this episode was all about Morgan getting to the realization that Rick is right about not letting dangerous people live.  Morgan is pro life and Rick is Pro Choice.   :D  The Ambush guy figured out that Morgan could have killed him a couple of times, but couldn't, and this guy was just going to keep coming.  By the end I think Morgan has come to the realization that he is going to have to kill the living, but is pretty unhappy with that realization.  I also think that him letting the group fight guy survive and run off with a gun is going to come back to haunt him. 

That episode was awesome.  Huge crazy fight out of knowhere.  I like the horn reveal - not intentional, but not some silly accident either.  Carol is awesome/psychotic.  Awesome quick thinking to disguise herself as one of them and then start taking them out one by one.  I loved seeing more of Morgan's stick fighting as well.  A second week with someone asking who trained him?  That's got to be leading to someone.  I like how they are introducing new characters like the doctor slowly and not making the whole episode about them, though I wish the doctor had been able to save Holly.  Both have bigger storylines in the comics. 

As for the wolves, what is up with these guys?  Definitely a bunch of nutbags as they keep hacking away at people after they're dead.  It's a weird dynamic that they're crazy and yet seemingly well organized to take Alexandria.  And one of the guys referenced that they had no choice, but to attack?  I wonder if the same pyscho from the comics ends up being the baddie in charge of these guys.  They sure seem a lot more like the Scavengers from the comics based on the attack.  And did it seem to anyone else like Enid was in on all this?  I wonder if she was sneaking out to pass along information to the Wolves, and she clearly seemed  prepared to leave at a convenient time.  JSS indeed.  Can't wait for the next episode!

I think that I've sort of caved in on driving all over for these 6" figures...  I recently ordered the Wave 2 and subsequent cases of TFA figures on Entertainment Earth.  While it means I may wait a little longer and pay about $1-$2 more per figure, at least I'll get them in the end - and the extra cost is really covered (if not exceeded) by what I spent on gas driving all over town.  If I happen to come across something in a store, then I'll get it, but its nice having that piece of mind that in the end, I'll get what I want :)

Yeah, I'm burned out on making store runs these days.  Its not like 10 years ago when there was new stuff hitting all the time and less tech to track everything.  You're better off checking stock ahead of time or ordering online, though in cases like the Target 2-pack I think you still need to track them down at the store, right?

Is anyone doing the 24 hour Marathon Viewing of all 7 episodes?  I really want to, but am just seeing the 7:00 with family and friends this time around.

Thanks Nick.  No difference in paint aps that you know of either?  Much cheaper to pick up the first versions if they're identical.

Yeah just today I think.  No word on the DPCI yet, but I will repost it here when they get to it. 

Anybody heard of this before?  I just saw it on Faceboook...

$40?!  What?  Is this supposed to be a TRU exclusive?  I found it on the TRU.UK site.  Are these more like the 5 POA Avengers figures like the scarlet Witch figure or the more articulated figs that would fit in with the Marvel Infinites line?  I cannot tell from the pics - almost seems like a cross between the two.  I never got the Falcon from the Captain America line, so might be interested in grabbing this...if I can find it for about half that price.   ::)

I finally watched it last night and thought the whole episode was awesome.  "Carter" plays a chump on Once as well, so loved seeing him get his dues towards the end.  I'm not sure what else they could have done with the zombies.  Leaving them there as the hoard grows wasn't ideal, and they can't really kill that many of them off.  I was thinking back to the prison and how they had fencing up to just kill them one at a time, but that would take forever.  The comic eventually has them luring herds off away from civilization, so cool to see that on the show already. 

Obviously they went this way to support the plot, but I think maybe they could have diverted the hoard sooner or immediately got them moving in another direction.  They had a car, so why not just use that horn as the noisemaker instead of all the gunshots and flares?  In fact, why not use the horn to offset that other noisemaker at the end?  They should have just used all that construction equipment to make a big pit and lured them all in there.  I didn't really understand the big rush, but it was all fun and exciting.

As for Morgan and the Bo Staff, that was a really interesting, deliberate question from Rick on who trained him.  I wonder if Morgan is really on his own or scouting for some other group.  This might be how they bring in *SPOILER* Jesus, who could have found and trained Morgan.  Interested in seeing how that one plays out.  As for the horn, my money's on the Wolves.  They made a point of showing that Wolves Are Near sign at the beginning and those guys are obviously well experienced with controlling/redirecting zombies.

There is a 6" SW Collector's Club on Facebook and several guys from there reported calling in and successfully placing orders over the phone.  Someone mentioned that they had stock and it just wasn't linking to the website for some reason.  I tried yesterday and the rep didn't do anything to help, but might be worth a call for anyone still waiting on these.  A friend just found him for me at retail, so I'm moderately happy again until I have to start worrying about the next exclusive.

I read on Facebook that people were having luck calling in to order versus using the site.  I called, but the rep said she couldn't find them in the system and could only put me on the email wait list.  I got an email notice that they were in stock at 9pm tonight, but when I went in at 9:05 they were sold out. Fun fun fun!

And now everyone has a win and a loss!

Bah, good game this week Nick.  Not going to complain much about my season, but stinks to score 95 points and still lose.   >:(

I love zombie everything, but this series was terrible.  I finally finished it last night and was angry at myself for watching it.  As others have pointed out, so many dumb plot holes and wasted screen time.  Flashing light in the window eluded to what?  Nerd who figures out everything ahead of time ends up where?  So many plot lines unresolved.  Young kids trashing a rich house?  Pointless.  Adding a new character and him conveniently needing a druggie?  Cripes, use him to steal something or classify drugs or whatever, but there was no point in that.  Wounded soldier boy catches up with them?  Really?  The zombie hoard following Salazar in nice neat mob just steps behind?  Yeah, that makes sense.  Could the zombies even walk that far that quickly given they were so short on time?  And don't even get me started on all the wasted lives and resources from that stupid plan at the end.  They didn't feel like warning ANY neighbors or taking ANY of those supplies?  And the nurse wants to be killed immediately?  Didn't characters that were bit in TWD make a point of showing when you're dying you want to hold on to every last second you can?  It feels like the whole show intended to make the point that the druggie kid felt lost in the pre-zombie world, and now everyone is catching up to him.  Awesome message.

I really can't stand any of the characters and have serious doubts about watching another episode let alone another season.  They so badly missed the mark with this show - I think they'd be better off just cancelling the series.  I really didn't enjoy any of the 6 episodes outside of actually seeing the military try to fight zombies and the initial random zombie outbreaks. Even those were irritating at times though, since the soldiers knew to shoot for the heads and probably could have wiped out that whole hoard with the number of rounds they were firing.  Just lame and disappointing.  This will definitely make whatever they put on TWD look like genius material going forward.

February should be ideal for a big movie launch.  People are past the holidays, but it's still too cold to hang outside.  They need some kind of window between Christmas launches and May without landing movies right on top of each other.  That's essentially Valentine's weekend too, so either a good date movie or a place to go if you don't have a date.  Tying into Black History Month for the panther is icing on the cake.

I hit a few rural Walmarts on a business trip this week and found all five of the wave 1 figures on the pegs.  If you're trying to find these might be worth a little road trip to the country.

My son got it for his birthday.  So far we have Ahsoka, Ben, Anakin, and Sabine.  All the characters are fun with new moves and loads of new playset options.  Our favorite is a random dispenser that gives out an enemy, new vehicle, landscape change, etc.  Also fun to see captain America battle Obi-Wan. Totally worth getting if you're a fan of the 2.0 stuff.
