I dropped Gotham as well.  There are a two or three actors in it that I really enjoyed, but there was so much other garbage I didn't like that it wasn't a fair trade-off.

Supergirl premiere tonight! At 8:30? Screw you, CBS. I watch Gotham.

Supergirl...all you had you wasted!

Who watches live TV anymore?  Unless it's Steelers football or The Walking Dead, it's DVR for me.

As far as Supergirl goes, watching the extended trailer was more than enough to show me this thing would be excruciating.

Yeah, I was taken back by the heavy steel gate that Michonne climbed over.  How was that gate there?  It was also annoying that it took her like 45 seconds to pull free and climb over.

The chain-link dead end made more sense.  Though I don't know why, when you were on the dumpster, you wouldn't just climb across the fence to the roof.  I saw the barbed wire on top of the fence, but the roof seemed pretty clear.

My first reaction was "why are his intestines coming out of his chest?"  But I took it at face value as death.  If he's under a body and a hoard of biting zombies, I can't see how he moves much less gets away.  But it sounds like all indicators are that he does.

I typically don't watch the previews for the next week, but they stuck one in mid-show as they were promoting their Preacher trailer.  And the feel I got was the next episode is going to be a flashback on Morgan.  I hope I got the wrong impression, because I don't think that'd be compelling TV for 90 minutes.  Especially with double cliff-hangers.

We shall see...

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

JSS...I thought it was Jesus without the vowels.

Just Survive Somehow

Absolutely fantastic episode, from the first frame to the last.  It's looking like the Wolves are fanatics or zealots of some sort.  Talking about freeing the people from Alexandria, and that dude at the end saying he didn't have a choice.

Carol is no joke.

I could really tell which building Morgan was walking into, so I was completely expecting him to walk into the armory and get popped.

Seems like it'd be a pretty rough endurance test leading a shambling hoard for 20 miles.  That's like a full day of non-stop driving.

It's amazing just how much better this show is written than Fear was.  Sure, there was the convenient "truck falling while we're watching" thing, but for the most part things made sense.  Real personal motivations.  Real characters.  I think one of the best moments was when Morgan spoke to Carol.  Shows how Morgan isn't blind like the rest of the residents, and Carol caught off-guard.  I think "Aren't you sweet" was code for "I'm gonna have to pop a cap off in your ass at some point."

I agree the plan wasn't the best plan.  They may not have explosives, but they have fire at least.  They also had those frontloaders parked at the place Glenn cleared out.  Those things are impervious to anything flesh-and-blood zombies could do, even in the tens of thousands.  Just go for a joy ride.

Deadpool is coming out this February.  Maybe they're trying to make it a viable month?  I know Titanic did monster business in February, mostly because there was zero competition.

I just don't see a reason why the military would see rich dude in a suit and conclude "trouble."  Especially rich dude who's an expert at reading people and manipulating them.  The only reason that would make sense is if the military was overtly racist - but I can't imagine they'd write it that way.

The first two episodes have been top-notch.  My wife actually gasped when their hands came apart in the portal world.  Very tense stuff.  I'd read somewhere that the portal issue was going to be resolved in short order, and I also saw Simmons on the Season 3 poster, so I had a good idea how things were going to play out.  Still, it was very compelling even for me.

Anybody have any clue who the Inhuman hunter is modeled after?  The character wasn't familiar to me at all.

As far as Daisy becoming a leader, I think it's pretty clear she's set to become the leader of the Secret Warriors.  I don't know how closely they'll follow the comic universe, but if you look up Marvel's Quake you can see what she went on to do there.

SPOILER.... ish







Apparently Jesse Eisenberg isn't playing Lex Luthor.  He's playing the late Lex Luthor's son, Alex Luthor...

So instead of being a self-made billionaire, he's a trust fund baby billionaire that revamps his dead dad's company.

I was just thinking about something after the finale - how did an intelligent, extremely savvy, able-bodied multi-millionaire end up in the prison for junkies, psychos and dead-meat?  A prison that's nowhere near his mansion and yacht?  In what universe does that begin to make sense?

Actually, I was just going for the Indy Jones joke.   ;)

Yeah - "let's abandon our neighbors and massacre the military."  Fine up-standing group right there!  Totally the type of people to root for!

I never said the barber was sympathetic.  I just think he's a legit badass.

Overall, I think the season was lame as hell.  In the end the only "loss" was the ex-wife.  Just paltry.  There were a couple bright spots, but I really don't like the cast at all.

I was really hoping the distraught barber was gonna pick up the gun and take out the dad for being an idiot.  That would have been a shocking and interesting ending.
