Just like with the Alexandrites you have to wonder how those idiot Hilltoppers have lasted this long. No fighters? No ammunition? Shady ******bag guy in charge? Seems like one herd wandering through would have ended the whole thing.

A round fence like they have would deflect a herd without incurring any damage.  Just gotta hole up and keep quiet.

I'm waiting for reviews before I decide if I'm gonna see it, but I think the theater version will only contain PG-13 levels of violence.

When you find the mother lode of supplies in a box truck, what you do is drive directly back home via the safest known route - i.e. - the way you just came from since you didn't see any trouble.  You don't continue exploring.  That aggravated me to no end.

Otherwise, pretty strong episode.

Zombies don't make sense. They don't have working digestive systems, they keep going without food, water, blood pressure, oxygen. They are rotting away but can bite through denim. They have no reason to be stealthy but sometimes are. They can smell the living...over their own stench? They can and cannot see well.

Here's a great article by Cracked on why zombies would be awful:

I think you just gotta embrace that they make no sense.  They exist to tell a story.  They act however they're supposed to act to scare you.  There are a few rough guidelines, but outside that, the writers have a lot of freedom.

I would not be surprised to see Deadpool in the last Wolverine movie.

And I agree that Hollywood will learn the wrong lesson.  The lesson isn't "do R-rated, goofy superhero movies."  The lesson is "these characters are popular for a reason - make a good movie that respects that reason."

I always hold the cherry.  That flavor clashes horribly with the mint.  Disgusting.

Grabbed one dahntahn.  Kinda cold to be walking around drinking a shake, but it was tasty.

Yeah, they were popular when we were kids in places with lots of people with Irish ancestry - places where Saint Patrick's Day was big.

I still remember the commercial:

I think they did the best they could to clean up a very messy situation.  And it seems like this'll be permanent for a change.  The core Secret Wars book was hit and miss.  Some pretty shocking deaths, but it seems like they're not gonna be permanent.

I'm surprised they opted to go with old-man Hawkeye, old-man Logan, and old-man Hulk, and replace the main characters with their kids (and some random Asian guy).  I'm not sure how long it'll take before they each find their fountains of youth.

I prefer this solution to DC's "everything before is non-canon" new 52.  At least they didn't nuke 75 years of legacy.

Marvel completed their reboot a couple months back with the Secret Wars cross-over.  Basically, Molecule Man was a time-bomb created to erase all off history across the multi-verse.  Doom finds out, defeats the beings who created him, and does what he can to salvage the few bits of reality still existing.  So he creates Battleworld, where he rules as God Emperor Doom.  Everyone believes Battleworld is how the universe always was (false memories) save for the few people who helped create it, and a few people who survived the destruction on high-tech life boats (Reed Richards, Thanos, Black Panther, Miles and Parker, among them).  In the end, Battleworld falls apart in a battle between Reed and Doom (which I haven't read yet since the core book is running a few months late), and the new, single Marvel Universe is created.  In it, they've cherry-picked their favorite characters from the Ultimates Universe, '90s New Universe, classic Marvel Universe, and random parallel timelines (Spider-Gwen, Maestro Hulk).

Judith might be a much more effective tool to paint Negan as a monster than just about anything else.
