Watto's Junk Yard / Re: '67 Shelby Cobra found after 45 years

I think if the defense found out a case was being funded by a GoFundMe drive, they'd end up using that to get the case thrown out.

It seems like Phurby is in a good position, able to absorb the legal costs.  And as soon as he makes it to court, he'll have the Shelby and can easily recoup any outlays.  The hassle sucks, but it is what it is.  Better this than settle for half the value splitting the vehicle with a thief.

Crazy stuff, man.  It sucks that someone can use the legal system like this to try to get away with theft.  It's good you have the resources to fight back.

I don't know - his dad got to go out doing something he loved with him.  Bittersweet, to be sure.

Pretty good way to go out, too.  Playing hockey with your son when you're almost 70... a lot better than years in a hospital.

Was the note found with the stash just referring to the lack of ammo? I was expecting something more ominous from the ' lose' part.

I took that more as a "the world is doomed" message than and specific reference to the supplies.

Here's a look at the Vulture action figure.  Apologies for the horrible auto-play ads...

By the way I read somewhere that it's not coming back until 2018!!!!!!!!? WTH

Two primary reasons:

1)  Westworld got a late order for season 2.  HBO got burned by renewing Vinyl before the first episode aired.  Going forward they're waiting for full-season ratings before renewing new shows.  That added 3 months to the development cycle.
2)  The showrunners said they have no clue how Game of Thrones can churn out a season in one year.  They expect an 18 month gap between their seasons.  Hopefully, they'll learn some tricks from GoT heading into season 2, so there's not an 18-month break until season 3.  I expect HBO will give them every resource (and encouragement).

You can build up secondary characters in much more interesting ways.  This latest episode was just dull and badly written.  First, unless you have superhuman strength, pulling at a duffle bag on the bottom of a pile of sand isn't going to cause that pile to collapse.  You want to UNLEASH THE SAND ZOMBIES then find a believable way to do it.

Then you send two women out to shoot Tara in the back.  And when her back is turned, they DON'T shoot her in the back.  They wait until she's far enough away to miss her.  More believable would have been for Tara to run off unprompted, but I guess that'd make her character suspicious instead of the free spirit she is.

Then the two women charged with ensuring the safety of the colony and the lives of everybody living there GIVE UP because there's a dozen walkers on the bridge between them and Tara.  These two women each strapping semi-auto rifles.  But she's 50 yards away now... it's a lost cause.  Let her spread the word of our secret colony to the people who murdered all our menfolk. 

My point - they could write much better, more engaging episodes.

Horrible writing.  A lesbian wakes up in a town full of only women... and leaves.   :P

Snark aside, it was a pretty awful episode.  I'm really happy I watch this on DVR after Westworld these days.  I'd be pissed if I wasted an entire hour on this show.  But maybe it'll pick up next week.

Here's a pretty good interview that digs into the difficulty of acting as a host.

I still think Peter Abernathy's diagnostic in the first episode is the best acting scene I've seen in years.
