Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

So last night's reveal was pretty big.  I was certain Mockingbird and Mac were working for Talbot.  But it turned out they're working for the "real" SHIELD.  Pretty clever way, IMO, to have SHIELD as a viable player in Age of Ultron (and a legitimate "secret" agency to boot).  Not looking forward to seeing how the TV squad reacts when they find out they've been a decoy for the past year.

Ruth Negga is half Irish.  Is the fact that she isn't blonde really going to kill the series for you?

Preacher female lead cast

I'm a big fan of her in SHIELD.  It'll be interesting to see if she can pull off a character who's less stable.

I'm not sure if anyone else watches The Flash (which is the best comic book series on TV right now, IMO)... but is it as painfully obvious to everyone else that all the huge reveals and events from last night's episode will be reversed by the very convenient time travel event?

I could see Nicholas lying about what happened to get Glenn and Eugene in trouble.  Deflect blame for Noah.  That could put Alexandria and Rick's group at odds.

Another episode of which I wasn't a big fan.

Carol gets snuck-up on by a fat cookie-seeking kid?  Rick ready to pop a cap in some physician's ass so he can get some?  Daryl becoming the least suspicious of the core because some dude likes horses?

I get Rick going darker, and that's an interesting turn, but the rest of them becoming incompetent this quickly just doesn't sit well with me.

The comic book Inhumans (who we presume live on the other side of the moon) aren't who the SHIELD humans turn into.  I don't think all the powered individuals we'll see are based on characters from the comics.  Seems like they have some creative freedom on that front.

First photos of Kingpin

Looks spot-on!

So WTF was that girl doing outside the camp? I'm guessing she is meeting someone outside and feeding or passing info to them. Maybe the strange woman in the house outside the gate that Carl glimpsed briefly.

I'm pretty sure that was the girl he glimpsed.

And yeah, Carol's performance was awesome.

Something I forgot to ask - back a few episodes when dude was describing the wall, he mentioned the frame was built from "4-inch, rolled steel."  Does anyone know if that was a deliberate reference to Game of Thrones?

So kind of a filler episode last night.  Seemed like they were planting seeds for future arcs.  Overall enjoyable, just not much to react to.

The "demo" ratings weren't quite as good, but overall viewership was even.  I expect they'd announce season 2 when they announce SHIELD.

I thought it was great.  My wife LOVED it.  When it ended she said she's going to miss it.  I'm really hoping for a second season.

Looks like all the roads are made up.  They'd likely take Route 1 into Alexandria.  Route 611 runs roughly parallel to it.  And I don't think you'd see the DC skyline while approaching Alexandria, as it's about 5 miles as the crow flies between cities.

This week's just seemed badly written to me.  The melodrama over "do we trust him or not" was strained.  I did like Michonne kinda taking over.

I don't know how you "clear" Route 16.  I didn't see any sign of walls or guards or anything else.  Given that they drove down days ago, prior to the tornado, I don't know how they'd have any clue of the number of walkers there now.

The whole thing with the car plowing through dozens of walkers I think was meant to be cool, but came across as stupid.  Brakes, maybe?  How do you not wreck when the glass is covered in blood and guts?  Arrow-straight road?  In Virginia?  Have they never driven through Virginia?

And then they drove by hundreds of walkers, leave the car, and have to kill maybe 15 or 20?  Glenn machine-guns down about 8 of them and they're safe?  The other two hundred walkers aren't attracted to the noise?

The flare was dude's partner, I guess it was meant to signal trouble or something.  I don't know how Rick & Co found the others based off the flare.  I'd guess it was a rendezvous point set by the two guys, but the one with Rick sure didn't seem to know exactly where he was going.

Just sloppy all around, IMO.

The flare gun in the face was pretty awesome, though.
