She was always fun to talk to.

I always wondered why Luke didn't just run up behind each walker and cut their legs out from under them with his lightsaber when I was a kid. 

It would have blown the FX budget.   :D

Turns out I was cancer in her intestines and spleen.  At least we were there to say goodbye.

I might be going through exactly the same thing you are Rob.  We took Cora in for emergency exploratory surgery today because an x-ray showed a mass on her spleen.  If it's benign, they'll remove the spleen and she'll live for a long while.  If it's malignant, they give her 1 - 3 months, and if it's spread to other organs they will euthanize her on the operating table today.

I may have said goodbye to my dog for the last time this morning.

Sorry for your loss, Rob.  Take some time to grieve, and when you're ready, there will be a dog just waiting to give you their love and devotion!

I just got back from Apocalypse and thought they did a good job overall.  I saw some reports that people were complaining about Sophie Turner's accent, but I thought she did a good job.  I also love how they handle Quicksilver's power!  It was awesome in Days of Future Past and it's just as enjoyable here!

It's just a way to sell more product.  ;)

I'll be interested in seeing how these walkers perform in the grand scheme of things.  Will they be easier to destroy (lighter armor?) than the ATs?  To me, it felt like the Rebels first encountered the ATs on Hoth (even though they knew of them) since they had inadequate firepower to take them down and only realized using the tow cables would work if they could get close enough.  The Rebels seemed unsure of how to defeat them.

My read on that was that the speeders couldn't take them down.  I thought perhaps an X-wing or Y-wing could do it, but they needed the X-wings to escort the transports.  Never saw a Y-wing on Hoth.

This last episode was not a good one to air going into hiatus.  Why the hell has Daniel gone bat-crap crazy after basically an afternoon at the hacienda?

Don't even get me started on Chris.

I just don't like how everyone in this show is acting like the folks in TWD when the apocalypse has only been going on for about 5 weeks in Fear.  TWD is at least 2 years into it!

In three months you'll find out this is actually a clone of Steve Rogers.

I watched the pilot and it's interesting.  I've never read Preacher, but I've read Crossed and The Boys, so I'm a fan of Garth Ennis' work.

If anyone missed the pilot, they are going to re-air it this Sunday at 9 pm EDT.

Anyone watch PREACHER?

Not familiar with the comics at all. Seemed a mess o'weird to me, but enough to get me to watch again.

That's Garth Ennis for ya!  I heard that Cinemax has picked up another one of his titles...The Boys.  If you haven't read it, it's worth a look!

The Wookiee Arcade / Star Wars: Uprising

I don't know if anyone else is playing this one, but I have for a while and it's got a pretty good story taking place right after the events of ROTJ.  Basically, the Regional Governor of the Anoat sector has set up an iron blockade and has supressed the news of the Emperor's death at Endor.  As you grind through missions and advance, you eventually find a blocked transmission from Princess Leia about the death of the Emperor and you go on to try and liberate the various systems in the secotr.

There's a lot of grinding and resource gathering and leveling up.  But the story is pretty fun.  There's also a guild (known as Cartels) system, and I recently started a Jedi Defender cartel if anyone ese is playing.

And with that cape he obviously hasn't been paying attention to Edna Mode.

If we shot it to Neptune, it would almost be there by now.  :D

I finally got to see the new Capt America yesterday.  I absolutely loved it!  I am having a hard time trying to figure out which is my favorite Marvel movie at this point, it's a toss up between Civil War and Winter Soldier.

Also, after being a Spider-Man fan fr over 40 years, I have finally seen a good and accurate Spider-Man movie.  :D
