I just think there's no real impact.  I see bald white dudes every day.  Lex was invented back when it was considered shameful to be without hair.  A sign of disease or old age.  That Superman caused it was a big factor in Lex's obsession.

Now, it's like "Eh..."

Reminds me of the Seinfeld issue where Elaine was dating a guy who shaved his head.  Jerry was like "Is he from the FUTURE??"

Yes, Jerry - he was.  He was from 2009.

Plus, Coulson basically planted the seed that took out several Hydra heads a few episodes ago  (after Whitehall's death).

Walking up on a camp of unknown people at night would be dangerous.  Aaron waited until morning to contact Rick's group.

Disagree.  I don't think there's any more danger coming up at night versus the daytime.   Daryl can flank Aaron as backup and they would have a greater element of surprise.  Remember Aaron was watching Rick's group for days and was close enough to overhear conversations. Coming up on a group in daylight without any recon seems like about the most dangerous thing you can do in the WD universe.

The problem is that once they introduce the "new threat" they're done. They're out of material. They are very close to catching up to the comic now. The next bad guy is the last one. I think they need at least another season of "Farmer Rick" type filler to let the comic forge ahead into some new territory.

I think it might seem that way given how fast they have covered comic material, but they're really still years behind.  Assuming they even go that route, the bad guy you refer to in the comics was around for 3-4 times as many issues as the Governor.  They can easily make a couple seasons out of that storyline if they want to.  There's a ton of material there depending on what they want to cover.  The comic is also several issues past that and on to another threat that would be even cooler to see on TV IMO.  That's three seasons worth of TV if the comic stopped today.

I'll go on record as confirming that is NOT a good look for Jesse.  Wow.

This is season 5. TV shows don't normally last that much longer even when popular (ie breaking bad). The bad guy, soo excited,  will be hinted if not named, but not shown, on Sunday. They can cast him soon. I think they could do two seasons of him and let the comics jump ahead if the show is still running then and then have more material to base things on

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Celebration Anaheim 2015

Too bad no panel but yeah, the timing of the movie has basically thrown everything off and with Celebration sitting in front of what they probably originally thought would be the release date (May)... what are you going to do. I scanned some of the FB comments on the news there's no panel and... yeah. I don't know what people want or expect anymore when it comes to this hobby, except apparently everything delivered to them on a platter. Last I checked that's not how the world worked.

Anyways, maybe Hasbro does end up showing something and surprises everybody. I read an interview with Simon Pegg last night and he mentioned visiting the set and his daughter playing with the BB-8 (basketball droid from the trailer) model and I thought, this thing is going to make a great, life-size toy. Hasbro would probably be ok showing something like that early on, seeing how it's out there.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Celebration Anaheim 2015

Celebration coming up in just a few weeks...  but no Hasbro panel.   :(

I felt bad for Hasbro yesterday as it was a no win situation for them most likely.  They haven't been given the green light to show off the Ep7 toys, so they were kinda stuck - host no panel and get accused of trying to avoid facing the fans or host a panel showing off farting furby and foam lightsabers and it's Toy Fair anger all over again from the usual suspects.   :-\

Anyway, just starting a thread here in case Hasbro does manage to show off something new at their Celebration booth... which may still happen even without a big 60-minute panel.

Why is it ever since "The Fringe" Kirk Acevedo is always cast as an ahole?  :(

That was a terribly weak backstory for the other SHIELD too. Transparency really? Maybe Hunter should have reminded those dopes that if Coulson hadn't found and flooded the city that Hydra would have taken it over. Or asked them WTF they were doing when Whitehall and HYDRA were kicking ass and taking names across the globe the past few months.

Time for Fury to pop back up and collectively bitch-slap those morons.
