I thought this was another great episode.

I can't figure out what is going on with Abraham, except I want to see him kick somebody's ass.  I've always loved Michael Cudlitz as an actor, especially in Southland and Band of Brothers.  Hopefully we'll see that before he meets his demise.

Tactically, they did everything right.  You have to leave security back at your vehicles for your return trip, otherwise it could be an ambush in waiting.  However, the personnel choices left something to be desired and this certainly sets up Glenn for a head bashing.  (Yes, I am well aware in the comics he gets offed).  I love his character so I don't want to see him go.

Bill, I'd guess if you penetrate the brain quickly, there won't be any sound or screaming.  Is it possible to get a clean knife through the eye kill?  Yes...very likely without noise, I doubt it.  But then again, headshots through the eye drop a person on the spot.  There are many, many factors that would go into that.

I enjoyed this episode, despite the "slower" pace than the previous episodes.  You knew a story episode was needed to set up what is coming.  And I thought Rick had a couple of really good one liners.

On top of that, it beat the hell out of watching the Oscars.

Jesse, I read the comics up to the abandonment of the prison.  I am of the same thoughts as you regarding spending on comics.  Luckily, I found the 1st volume of the Compendium and read that for around $30 and then turned around and resold it.  Eventually I'll get the other two volumes and do the same thing.

I can't justify spending on one issue after another.

Damn good episode!!!

Did anyone get a little Pulp Fiction vibe?  The scene where Rick and Daryl popped the walker while standing over Jesus certainly made me think that.

Didn't really see the end coming but I guess it makes sense seeing how the episode began.

Well, the next one should be good.  The odd number ones are good, the even...not so much.

I've said this before, although not in this a nation, we have led the way in space exploration.  With all the programs, and all the flights, it is amazing that only 17 astronauts have lost their lives on official missions.

I've kind of been sucked back into the Sci Fi channel and started watching the Expanse.  The first two episodes have aired, and the pilot is readily available on Youtube.  It looks pretty good so far.

I started watching this and had my DVR set to record the series.  I got through the pilot after two sittings and then started on the second episode and watched about 15 minutes before I was bored to tears and cut it off.  I was really hoping for something that would suck me in, but no such luck.

Finally got to see the movie today.  First, my dad took me to see the OT and now I'm taking my little girl to see the ST movies.  Thought that was cool as a daddy.

Awesome movie.  I can't say that enough.  I freaking loved it.

Han dies!!!  That hit me in the sad feels.  He's been my second favorite (behind Indiana Jones) movie character for 35+ years.  However, it fit with the mentor dying as we've seen in the first movie of each trilogy.  I loved seeing Chewie get pissed off and open a can of whoop ass on his way out.  It was really sad seeing him in the cockpit of the Millenium Falcon all alone. 

It was great seeing the MF finally do all the tricks we've wanted to see it do since 1977.

I thought the intro of Luke was just really, really cool.

Again, awesome movie.  I'd rank it just below ESB.  I felt it was  great mix action and characterization of the OT, the special FX of the PT, as well as having its own feeling.  Great movie and it sucks I have to wait a year and a half for the next installment.

How many times is Starfleet going to let the new Kirk get the Enterprise and destroy it?  That is one thing that will get old rapidly.  Three movies, three times the Enterprise gets trashed.  I think it would be cool to see another angle besides blow up most of the ship.

Really good episode.

I did have the same question about the RPG.  But at the same time, if we must get technical, Abraham is toting around and M16 and the military transitioned away from that particular model years ago.  The giveaway on that is the flash hider and triangular shaped handguard. 

Anyway, I thought this was a really, really good episode.  (I still want to know what happened to Glenn).  I would hope the story with Darryl and Abraham hasn't run it's course yet as this seemed to develop their characters, especially Darryl.  I suspect it will not end well for the bike thieves.

I also wondered about the guys who were looking for the thieves, who were they?  Being that I haven't read past the fall of the prison in the comics, could that have possibly been an introduction to Negan?  I'm thinking similar to the Michonne intro where they never showed the face but you knew who it was?

Is it just me, or is it hard to focus on the background because you are simply watching the Millenium Falcon gracefully maneuver...something we have wanted to really see for a long time but the technology just wasn't there?

I didn't think that was a crack.  I thought it was blood dripping from somewhere.

I agree with the rest of your assessment.  Not a great episode.  I think the plot developments this week were all about who's hooking up with who.  Not super interesting to the members of this forum, but they gotta cater to their female viewers at some point.

I didn't totally negate the possibility that was blood.  My only thought was why would it matter if that was blood?  Who's was it going to be that we'd miss?

Did anyone see the cover of the book that Tera kicked across the floor to the new "doctor?"  It was blue and had gold embossed lettering that said "Gray's Anatomy."  Stupid ass show, but still pretty cool to see.

The sewer walkers were pretty cool though.

Overall, I thought this was a craptastic filler episode that didn't seem to drive the plot anywhere.  I get that the Alexandrians aren't familiar with having to fight to survive.  They whine about the whining, I get that.  It has grown old quickly.  There was virtually no plot development, to my knowledge, last night.  The only thing that seemed amiss, was the crack in the steel wall at the end.  I saw all the walkers banging on the fence and was thinking back to the prison when the walkers eventually pushed the fence down.

I don't see how skipping over Rick escaping from the horde was passed over completely.  They could have at least done something with that.

Oh well, on to next week and then I'm guessing the last episode of 2015 we will find out what really happened to Glenn.

I thought it was a pretty good episode.  I am a little irritated there was nothing from the Glen or Rick end, but I expected that.

With Morgan walking away from the cabin, I felt there was a little "hope."  I'm not sure how that will play out, especially with the Wolf who said he'd kill as soon as he got the chance.  But all in all, it was nice to have a little glimmer of sunshine, because we know this show does nothing but rip you apart.
