I'd heard Gotham = NYC and Metropolis is Chicago or midwest. But NYC exists in DC?

Keystone City should be in the Keystone state...Pennsylvania,

Saw it last week and enjoyed it.  Surprising, since I thought Man of Steel was kinda so-so.

Someone said this is  mediocre movie with a good movie trying to get out of it. That's maybe fair. I think the R-rated cut or longer cut will redeem it more, though....at some point Zack Snyder racked up a hate tab with nerds and critics that's gonna stick with him. But hey, so did Michael Bay and he's still going.

In regards to Marvel comparisons. "This is just a set-up for Justice league" Well, that's what the title implies.
I mean Captain America First Avenger felt like a going-through-the-motions prequel to the Avengers.  BvS seemed like a condensed adaptation of a multi-issue comic book story (like the Watchmen movie was, but messier here), and to a degree Age of Ultron felt like that too, with less subplots.

I was most surprised that I liked Affleck's Batman.

Spoiler comment:
Why are Gotham City and Metropolis so close to each other?
The future dream sequence was awesome.
If you haven't seen it yet, find the released cut scene with Luthor is about to get arrested. It sheds light on his ending rant a bit more.

I enjoyed it thoroughly. No, wait...I meant barely.

 A-holes acting stupid on a yacht that for some reason stops moving so idiots can jump in the water near a shot-up boat that was probably sunk by the military (would anything else make sense this early in the poccy lips?) It's not that the coast guard can't save anyone, it's probably they've been ordered not to. The military still thinks this is something to contain.

Which reminds me that Los Angeles is burning because "our heroes" decided to release a zombie horde on the army's command post. 

There's also how come the undead are fleeing the bombings and fires...oh, they say because they aren't as decayed or  mindless or something yet. Sure...change the rules and pretend that's how it's always been.

Strand, the junkie and Cliff Curtis can live, the rest can sleep with the fishes.

Oh, and if The Talking Dead occasionally got tedious and dull after the Walking Dead, now it's pure snoozefest.

I'm confused about people's shock at a cliffhanger in a tv show

And I've said this before and I'll be a pain in the ass again,  why do people watch a tv show they hate so much?  Just to bitch?

I'm confused that you'd even ask that question. Is this your first day on the internet?

I had a longer response. But it would probably be interpreted as "bitch bitch bitch". So why bother? I mean, I got tv shows to go "hate" watch.

Cheap tactic reused again. They made this season very uneven with their gimmicks. First was Glenn and the magic dumpster (Has anyone found a dumpster in our reality that you can crawl under?), second was the mid-season "finale" with its non-ending (leading to a mid-season premiere that picks up where it left off, a rarity for this show), and now we have EENY-MEENY-MINEY MOE---CATCH A TIGER BY THE TOE...SEE YOU IN OCTOBER!

Morgan wasn't very convincing at first, but the benefit of letting him talk for 20 minutes help push his character. Shouldn't he have been clean shaven?

An episode consisting of them driving into roadblocks and Negan talking, I felt the Morgan/Carol bits were a decent diversion. It was odd she finds the library that was recently sacked. Small world.

The way they keep bringing back Darth Maul gives me hope that Han Solo will be in Episode VIII.  Seriously...he was cut in half and fell into one of the bottomless pits that seem to be everywhere in the Star wars Universe!

I did like the face off between Vader and Asohka...even though I wish she had never been in the Rebels cartoon (I never liked the newer clone wars cartoons because of the Hanna Montana Jedi, also making Anakin Skywalker a Master in the first episode thereby negating his motivations in Revenge of the Sith).

They made Anakin a KNIGHT in the rebels cartoon, so he could have a padawan.  He's not a Master. (Original backstory for Ki-Adi Mundi was that he was just a Knight on the Jedi Council, not a Jedi Master, but that got thrown out with ROTS).

Only a fool's hope.

SPOILERS...of course

The double-blade lightsaber helicopter bit...a SITH secret.

The Kylo Ren type saber... proving that Ezra is really Snoke. Or something. Or nothing.

Just who was that 3rd inquisitor?

Why aren't Kanan and Ahsoka allowed to actually kill anyone? If Maul wasn't there, they'd have lost...well, more-so.

Maul constantly surviving makes him the canon version of the EU Boba Fett.

Why did the temple have the voice of Assaj Ventress?

How'd anyone survive that 'spolsion?

They used misdirection in last week's previews, we were meant to think Daryl went after Carol...when he doesn't even know she's left.

Also, Negan's peeps know about Alexandria. How long have they known? HOW LONG? ENID'S A SPY!!! (Are people still saying that, because it got old...)

4? What about Carol and Morgan who could also get captured....so potential casualties could go as high as six. Imagine all six getting whacked like t-balls.

Tonight's episode, Everybody runs out of Alexandria and gets into trouble for no logical reason. Well, not everybody, just half of them.

Morgan justifies his actions as all part of a circle, never mind if it weren't for him saving the Wolf that Denise never would've been put in harm's way to begin with.

I thought maybe he got bit and didn't want to tell Rick.

A HORSE! A HORSE! MY KINGDOM FOR A HORSE!! Rick and Morgan encounter Richard the III. This after they meet Carol's stunt double in a clever SPACEBALLS reference. (The walker was played by Carol's stunt double)

Carol is still a murder machine. Next time we see her, one of her limbs will have been replaced with a weapon of some sort. Maybe a flame thrower.

Daryl's city living has made him SOFT again.

Where's Aaron in all this? Sorry, only allowed two Alexandrites at a time, this time Tobin and Enid. Next time Deanna's son and I dunno.

And Fear the Walking Flight 30 (seconds) part 105...and we still don't care. Should've made them webisodes. How come none of the past webisodes ever tied back into the series? (Besides bicycle woman) WHAT HAPPEN TO STORAGE UNIT COUPLE?  ???

The non-mystery of Chopper Base. I agree with Zeb, keep those spiders away from me. Convenient they were virtually blaster-proof...even to heavier starship blasters...except the eyes. I was waiting for the spiders to be intelligent and the rebel pilot to be alive anything to subvert the MONSTER OF THE WEEK bit, but no...very large spider-things that even Ezra cannot connect with. Funny their main prey were small snail thingies, they must eat a lot of them to support such a large spider colony.

Yes, who'd sign onto the rebellion knowing their pilots are expendable.

Did they go back for her A-Wing or what?

Dark side music because Ezra doubts the force and wants to make friends with hideous monsters...yeah...that must be it.

Found a few Buffy the vampire slayer figures at Meijer for $1 each. That was the only Reaction line they carried as far as I ever saw.

Never have so many, given so much...for a can of soda?!?

Seriously, I hope they at least bought that damn can of pop back to Alexandria so they could bequeath it to Tara. "Hey, your girlfriend is dead but she wanted you to have this RC...drink up, baby!"

And she just took the one can and left the others. Because it's not like soda has calories and people need those in a town that had a dwindling food supply.

Well that was a  set up to a shocking moment. Apparently not exactly what comic fans were expecting I gather.

And people acting stupid. Let's not all take the same path, let's try and prove ourselves in dangerous walker kills....Carol, you know Daryl won't accept that!

I give Morgan credit, the prison cell isn't really a bad idea, but such labor needs to go towards defenses.

Confused by Dwight's burns, to me it implied he was at the safe house and burned by Carol but survived. But then I read about his comic character, so....(this means, you don't have to tell me, because I know....just saying that I was initially confused.)
