Hmmm, interesting.  I mean for some reason new Tolkien stuff doesn't interest me quite the way new Star Wars does, but at this point I should just look at it similarly and realize it was inevitable.  I'm not much of a streaming guy, like ever, outside of Youtube videos, so I don't even know what I'd do here.  I'm not a fan of paying for a bunch more stuff on top of my cable bill, but at the same time I'm not a fan of ditching my cable either...  But I'd kinda like to watch this if it is actually decent.

Anyway, just another franchise making something we may or may not like.

What Scockery said on Shiva...  this show makes $ hand over fist and they killed tiger for budgetary bulkshit.  Wanna be mad be mad they took something interesting and fun on the show and **** on it cuz some asswad at amc doesn't let them have a better budget.

If we are talking unrealistic junk though, beyond the usual, it was that whole chase.  From the opening and setting up a .50 a team of 30 couldn't do expeditiously at the building to suddenly one bald dildo can do it alone in a moving truck in a minute, all the way to the .50 hitting the engine and only puncturing the rad.  If you've seen a round to one of those, you'd know it would've stopped Rick's early 90s Wrangler YJ like it hit a brick wall...  not just popped the radiator. ::)

This wasn't this shows finest moment by any stretch.  And I genuinely still enjoy it and overlook the lack of realism sprinkled here and there.  My only major bitch with this whole ep was Shiva.  She was interesting and bold in a show that's on a loop right now, and you can't tell me they offer the tiger with so little use simply for the same reason GoT runs its dragon budget into the ground after like two scenes in a season.

I love that shoulder holster.  Wonder why all the hands?  I see fist hands but I don't see anything to make all the other hands unique.  He'd look pretty at home in my Cantina I do believe.

I dunno man, CoD usually has innovation in the game be it parkour crap or whatever it takes to make it feel new.  I couldn't see going and playing MW after all these other MW replacements.  There is usually some improvement.  Not always tho. :-\

The Legacy Collection / Re: The Big Vehicles - Did You Buy Them?

That's a good deal for sure.  They're selling for fairly insane $ on eBay I think, like all the bmf ships.  I think how funny it was all this was on clearance and new movies and new generations of collectors are willing to so grossly overpay for this stuff.

BC on CoD always blows my mind that people are interested since, for the most part, new CoD is usually better CoD

I'd normally have agreed on that and the thought crossed my mind, but that was all Lucas and his unending dreaming.  Much like teased video games from a dying entity, it became just talk.  This though is Disney, and Iger specifically, and so far they've not given the lip service or just been dreaming out loud. 

Lucas always had his logistical issues with it and other excuses.  To my mind this is a whole new ball of wax being that it is now Disney saying this is a thing and is happening in conjunction with their streaming service.  Short of that falling through, of course.

I feel like this is a much more concrete thing than Lucas was trying for.  I'm just curious if it's going to be at all related to what he wanted to do or not.

Shockingly this news seems to be sorta flying under the radar some, but for me this is as interesting (if not more) than the announcement of a new Trilogy, and I was flipping my wig over a new series of films! 

I've not watched Gotham religiously, and I'm not a Super Hero fanatic, but the shows and things for Marvel and stuff seem really nicely done, and I'm anxious to see what can be done with Star Wars.  I'm really hoping it's the rumored underworld focus.  This is an interesting thing to watch and see how it plays out.  Disney has boundaries they don't appear to like to cross much at all, but I'm anxious to see if they'll take Star Wars outside itself with something grittier and edgier.

I've been feeling pretty bad lately but this news really perked me up today!  It's kind of mind-boggling how far this could go, and how Star Wars could basically be unending.  I mean, I have to say, I'm kinda bummed I may never see all of it because it may simply go on beyond my life with more and more stories, and at one point that was never a thought I'd ever considered.

I am very excited though.  I love going to see the new movies with friends and family...  I can't say everything about them is great to me, but they've been pretty damn good to me, and Rogue One was just fantastic.  I feel like I will like The Last Jedi a lot, but I've really come to like the characters and I'm just excited to see where their stories go.

But a whole NEW trilogy?  New areas?  Possibly new eras?  New characters?  I don't even know what to think because the possibilities are endless.  I could see them doing a longer term galactic civil war focused movie series, or pre-Clone Wars era.  Just so much to think about that they can do. 

I can only imagine the complaining already from some circles, but I just like going to the theater to watch some good old fashioned Star Wars on the big screen.  I envy you guys with younger kids, for being able to share this.  :)

Saw!  Yeah that's probably as good a price as Big Lots would have on a large multi set like that.  There is like 3 sets there if you think of the figs vehicles barracades and the Quonset all as kind of individual stuff.  The large building is $40 or $50 now...  and that's it, with some figures, not with what amounts to some figure sets, vehicle sets and that small barrier set that was out

The only issue waiting out people in a fire is the attention it draws from walkers...  and far away.  Not that gunfire doesn't do similar. 

I guess all the slaughter is to parallel the viewer desire for payback on these people as we watched the Negan/Rick cuckold film we saw up to this point, but yeah I mean it's kinda dull and seems wasteful to boot. 

The only story movement seems to be the Carol/King relationship, the "who is a revenge bent psycho and who is a borderline psycho and who is with Jesus and semi normal" setup going on...  oh and weaker half of Aaric dying.

It took a while for someone to nonsensically wander off.  If you bet on Morgan collect your $.

I like the show and the payback and the slaughter of people who were and are still dickheads.  They're going down some similar paths tho with like Jesus soaring a dude who you knew was bad, and people killing fairly indiscriminately while others will argue with them till there is an internal rift appearing and stuff... *cough*shane&Dale*cough*Shane&Rick*cough* and a bunch of other variations of that conflict.

I have my issues with some custom sellers anyway.  This kinda stuff just enhances it.

Sure coulda used those .50s in a reasonable place...  like say the sanctuary...  where they could do what they basically do and rip the shot out of those tincan uparmored Toyota Camrys.  But nah let's take them as far away as we can and stuff.

.50s aren't a wonder weapon either...  I mean everyone has machine guns.  Not having the guns at the key point you need to protect seems like bad planning.  Sure they kill Kingsomers and all that but they didn't need that firepower for that job.  They needed it at the main base and wherever the Alexandrians were attacking.
