If you take TWD and change it for Keeping up with the Kwhorda$$hian$, then he'd have a point.  TWD isn't a huge deep drama, but it does have some social commentary.

Trailer is up

This looks awesome.  I'm just not psyched for Thor 2 for some reason, but this has me jazzed for more Marvel.
This does look awesome. 

When the first Thor film came out, I wasn't all that motivated to see it, but I was really pleased with what they did, never having been much a fan of the character.  I feel kind of the same now with these two features.

That is an interesting take for sure, I interpreted that as more of a spiritual/ethical type comeback than a mental one. Like "how can you reconcile the horrible things you have had to do to survive with your personal sense of morality?" That was kind of the thrust of their conversation, they had both done bad things but Rick was still willing to reach out and help a stranger whereas she couldn't make that leap and had crossed over to pure survival mode.

That is what I took from it too.  Could the soul come back from being inhumane, not really the psyche.

Nothing at Kohl's is full price, ever.  There is always at least a 15% coupon available and most times 30% is not unheard of.  That would be in addition to the sales that are constant.  I bought Logan a Thomas Trackmaster set there that was priced at %79 and after a series of discounts got it for around $25 (just one train alone is "worth" around $10).  Bargains can definitely be found there.

Wow!  That looks awesome.  Can't wait!

I agree, Bill.  They also run the risk of overly bloating the plot with too many characters/details.  We nerds LOVE stuff like that but the average movie-goer gets annoyed and gives up (see The Hobbit).  Sooner or later the whole thing will collapse on the weight of its own complexity.

Someone cleaned this WalMart out.  In fact, they had a TON of UltimateFX sabers marked down to $15.  I let my son pick one out (he picked red).  I went back to grab a Luke and an Anakin for him so he'd have all three colors, and they had one Luke saber left and two Anakins.  They blew through these.

I'll bet that the new show is centered around Darryl Dixon.  He's not a comic creation, and the fans (especially the women) LOVE him.  In fact, I saw a cool "Team Darryl" sticker on a car (complete with crossbow).

I can't believe no one has posted an R-rated picture of figures posed here yet.

This store was in Lisbon, CT.  I'm going there today and I'll see what's left.

Today I saw Kwinn, Duke and Flint from this wave.  Left them for someone else.

My son is scared of these huge figures.  I have put Supes, Bats and now Vader in the shopping cart with him and he tries to trow them out of the cart.  LOL.

Looks like my Wally put the new wave directly to clearance.  I grabbed the awesome new Storm Shadow, Snake-Eyes V2 and the incredible Cobra Commander for $3 each!  Left Firefly behind, and Crimson Guard rang in at $10.

They can do anything their parents wallets allow.  The price is right.  Its all always available.  It's diverse.
Plus every set can "add on" to a previous set.  Compatibility is never, ever an issue.  There is so much more upside for Lego, it is ridiculous.

You can get a Chinese knockoff that plays NES and SNES games in the same unit for around $50 or so.
