I agree with the general sentiments here as well.

The only take-away that I thought was interesting was the fact that the Boyfriend/Step-dad character (sorry, I don't remember anyone's names) showed some serious balls by going into that church by himself. Yeah, part of it was probably just "blind courage" but minimally, it could have been a drug addict on a really bad trip, violently lashing out - either way (walker or dude high on bath salts) - he still was willing to put himself into harms way for the sake of his family.

Kind of gives insight that he's a resourceful, survivor type, so that way when it comes to the end of the six weeks and he's still alive we're not left thinking "how the hell did the high school teacher survive?!?!"

And for anyone not liking the drug-addict son of the female lead - I'm pretty sure I caught a shot of him with a bite on his foot in the coming attractions, so his days are probably numbered. Would make sense, even if they wanted the show to be about a "family unit" and how they survive a zombie apocalypse, that unit could simply be the two leads, the female lead's daughter and the male lead's son from his previous marriage.

Here's a perfect example of what Scott Gimple was talking about us knowing more than the characters.  Travis went to the old church just thinking his junkie soon-to-be-stepson may have seen something, but his account is unreliable because he's an addict.  He didn't expect more than a bunch of strung out junkies zoning out after their fixes.  We know there was at least one zombie in their earlier, because we know what's coming.  They don't....and their primary source to the "there's something odd going on here" plotline is a junkie.

Now, when they see Calvin...that's the game changer.

I enjoyed it.  We needed a set-up episode, and these people have no clue what is going on yet.  It should be interesting where they go from here.

In some ways I think I would have preferred a Ep7 BMF re-do... but for what this is, I'm kinda glad they put a little effort into making up a new Falcon too. 

Yeah it's got action features and stuff, but I think it looks like a fun toy.  I know my 5yo will be all over this thing... especially the shooting nerf missile thing. :P

I'm in the same boat for this.  Hell, most of the TFA stuff I've seen so far will be in my 5 year old's room!

I'm waiting for the Sphero version of BB-8.

Other than that, nothing.

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Star Wars: Rogue One

It's weird because the two dudes on the right make this feel, to me, like a goofy adventure flick instead of a Star Wars movie. I like the OT elements in the rest of the cast, even the PT elements in the background. ;)

It's like Star Wars meets 47 Ronin!

Is that a micro machine version?

They have the moulds for the BMF still...all it needs is a new dish!

I agree Jesse, 2007 levels of articulation would be great.  This 5 POA is such a step backward!  Honestly, it's unforgivable on a figure like Kylo Ren.

By the end of Episode IX he will be nothing but Bondo and Primer.

Check this out KOTOR II fans!

My hope is that they will also release it on iOS devices like the original!

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: The Force Awakens Trailers

I think its Domhall Gleeson's character and he's wearing an officer's hat.  If you look at the reverse of that scene from the 2nd teaser trailer, you can see him from the front.

They've been showing ads during Halt & Catch Fire and Humans.  It's looking like it will be pretty good!

Has anyone else watched the show Airplane Repo on Discovery?  I swear, I think I've found my calling in life!  :D

Looks good Paul!  Thanks for the update.

Thanks Dale!

I would definitely need to redesign my collection room for that!
