Kinda cool insight to the episode on the talking dead.  The zombies hanging in the country club was a result of the staff fighting with the country club patrons...also the one in the pro shop with the rich bitch sign.

Pretty cool that there was an interesting back story there!

I liked the episode even though it was paced very slow.  It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but these types of episodes are needed to develop the characters...so you care when they are eventually eaten by the zombie horde.  :D

Darryl and Merle are not in the comics at all.  Carol is much different in the comics as well.

I don't know if it's the medium or if Kirkman's writing has evolved, but the characters in the comics are much more one-dimensional...but the stories can be much more brutal.  There are some plotlines I just can't see how they would make the television show!

That blows.  He was one of the better EU writers.

Jocasta's Reading Room / Re: Star Wars comics go back to Marvel

I love the current Star Wars series set post ANH.  I really hope Marvel keeps it going with the same creative team.

I agree, the Legacy Volume 2 stuff is good as well, but I think they are ending it soon.

The 2:5 mark shows you the Boba Fett view of Godzilla!  :D

Definitely a good episode, I'm glad to see Abraham, Eugene and Rosita are pretty true to form from the comic.

This whole "Darth Icky" nonsense reads as beyond ridiculous at face value.  And it really left me wondering about a couple of things. 

First, is the story legit?  Without knowing any of the sources involved it's tough to make that judgement.  If it's all true it has to leave you with some serious questions about just what GL was thinking.

And second?  Is it possible this happened but GL had ulterior motives in judging things?  Because the names alone sound preposterous.  To a degree that it comes across like some sort of put-on.  Is it possible that GL went into this meeting with a totally ridiculous proposal in an effort to judge his own people?  Had he grown in stature to the point that nobody within his companies was prepared to challenge him on his creative ideas?  To someone with a background like his own that would probably seem like he had finally become what he had railed against in his younger days:  a studio apparatus that was out of touch with the work of the people on the artistic front lines.  Lucas's work with Francis Coppolla and American Zoetrope tried to buck that Hollywood system in an effort to do something new and different in film.  And effectively the Star Wars films, with the exception of the first, wound up being independent films.  But Star Wars had grown into something SO BIG that it seems like George Lucas had become the very thing that he had fought against for so much of his career.  It must be an eye-opening thing to be in a position where nobody will speak truth to power, and YOU are the power.

So, witness the sale of Star Wars/Lucasfilm to Disney.  And the fact that GL is going to be putting the bulk of that money towards philanthropic pursuits.  That, combined with the fact that he's stated that he wants to work on small, independent films say to me that GL probably recognized that this thing had grown far beyond even his own imagination, and perhaps it was time to move on since he couldn't find people that would be partners with him in a creative collaboration.

If only he had sold the franchise in 1997.

What a shame that those games were not developed properly.  Hell, I'm still disappointed that KOTOR II was released unfinished (still a fun game though).

The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: Toy R Us Vintage Republic Gunship
« on: February 19, 2014, 10:43 PM »
This ship arrived earlier in the week and it looks fantastic!  I've always wanted one in my collection ever since they created the pod cannons, and to have them all in one package is awesome!  Although the clone pilot and the Yoda are pretty lame, the phase one clone that comes with it is awesome as well as the rifle and carbine with paint apps on them!

I purchased a couple of more TBS Clone Pilots to fill out the ship and put my other two phase one clones from my two evolutions sets in it and it looks really good.  I might get another phase one clone from somewhere to put an entire squad in it for deployment, but it barely has the room!  :D

Can someone explain why the younger girl's shoe was at the scene of the walker attack when Daryl got there, but she was still wearing them as they walked down the train tracks?

Thanks, I was wondering that too and never could figure it out.

RE: the bus - maybe it just ran out of gas? Esp if the bullets hit the gas tank...just thinking out loud.

I figured Glenn had just passed out from exertion back at the prison, he is still in pretty rough shape getting over that virus.
They were showing different segments out of sequence.  It illustrates that the survivors are all somewhat near each other and their paths keep crossing, but they have yet to link up.

If you notice, there are bullet holes in the back of the bus....it was being shot up as they were driving away.  My guess is that some people in the back were killed, turned, bit others and no one got out in time.  The folks on the bus were a lot of the old and others recovering from the infection.

Great episode and awesome to see that there's a hint of another sanctuary out there as well as seeing Abraham Eugene and Rosita!

I think you should read them.  The show is different enough at this point where, although you'll get a sense of what might be coming, the show will still surprise you.

I know.  If you look closely, you'll see items from The Phantom Menace too.   :-X

TPM is a little more forgivable...f course this is coming from a guy who has an entire shelf dedicated to the Gungan vs Battle Droid ground battle!  :D
