I've got a bad feeling about this...

Was that Agent 33 from Agents of SHIELD as the fingerless Savior? Sure looked like her.

That was not Maya Stojan.  According to Wikipedia, the role was played by Jeananne Goossen (though not credited on IMDB).

Preacher premiere date - May 22 at 10 PM.

Quote
An encore presentation of the pilot episode will air the following Sunday, May 29, with back-to-back airings beginning at 9 PM. New episodes will resume Sunday, June 5 at its regular 9 PM time slot.

So I guess it's going to premiere after the finale of Fear the Walking Dead, then take over the prime 9 PM slot.  I'm skipping Fear this time around - season 1 was garbage, and I can't imagine the characters are gonna get any better.

Carol is taking stock, and not liking the balance.  So yeah, that might point to her end.

I thought it was a great episode.  Very tense.

Kinda odd with the cult-of-Negan.  Still trying not to spoil the show with the comic, so I don't know if that plays out the same.

And funny how a whole group of people will pile into a room that must reek of gasoline without so much as a second thought.   ;D

I haven't read the comics either, even tho I've heard that someone dies, but I wonder after all the fighting each other how do you even team up again as Avengers how do you be 'friends' again?

He's called Thanos.   8)

And I get the sense that the government wants to hold both of them responsible for the creation of Ultron which led directly to the Sokovia incident.  I think it is precisely because of that particular incident and it's causality that leads Tony Stark to play ball with the government regarding the registration and control of super-human activities.

OK, I'll buy that.

Okay, maybe I'm the only one but I don't get it...

Why not just put Hulk in there and call it Avenger 3?

Because contracts.   ;)

It'll be interesting to see how they adapt the comics to film.  My main problem with Tony agreeing to be controlled is that he knows that Hydra pretty much controlled the whole government just two movies ago.  The World Council.  Everything.  So that's who he wants to put in charge of the Avengers?

And each of those big destructive events - what would have been the outcome had the Avengers not acted independently?  New York City nuked & the world conquered by aliens.  Every special/consequential human on earth executed.  And total global extinction.

So it just seems there has to be a breach in logic to go along with the "we caused this destruction" argument.

So if you're stabbed through the eye while sleeping, you don't make a peep?  I'd think there'd be screaming.

And also, unless you get the blade perfectly through one of the gaps in the back of the orbital, the knife isn't going to slide in all smooth-like.

Still, a decent, tense episode.  I'm guessing this building is just one of Negan's satellite offices...

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:
http://www.cracked.com/article_18683_7-scientific-reasons-zombie-outbreak-would-fail-quickly.html

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.
