I think the Savior leaving the firefight was out of chronological order - a flashback.  That's how I read it, at least.  It was his blood that Morgan and Rick tracked.

They did a good job lining up four different possibilities for the baseball bat.  It'll keep the Internet guessing all week.  I wouldn't be surprised to see quite a few casualties.  I don't expect Rosita or Abraham to make it through.  They might wuss out and save both Glenn and Daryl.

Overall, kind of a stupid episode.  Stupid on the part of every character.  They're expecting an imminent attack, so half a dozen of them leave for mostly stupid reasons.

Looks like you're not alone in your dissatisfaction.  BvS came in with a "B" CinemaScore.  That puts it a notch below Sacha Baron Cohen's The Brothers Grimsby and on par with Dirty Grandpa and The Divergent Series: Allegiant.

Man of Steel managed 56% positive, and I thought it was terrible.  Reading the reviews so far, it looks like BvS makes many of the same mistakes that bothered me in MoS.  Even the positives have qualifiers.  They talk about "great moments" that make it "worth" sitting through everything else.  I have no desire to sit through 2 hours and 15 minutes of grating garbage for 15 assorted minutes that make me say "Ooooooooo!"

Sure, I'm kinda biased as I was severely disappointed with MoS.  Fool me once...

Sadly, 40% on Rotten Tomatoes means I'll be saving my money and waiting for Netflix.  Sounds like it's about on par with what I expected after Man of Steel.  DC/WB really needs to launch Snyder into orbit and retool.  Maybe build up their TV universe and use that to launch some feature films.

If you're a fan of Olivia Wilde, this week's episode of Vinyl on HBO is excellent viewing.

I'm interested in hearing reviews from people who aren't emotionally invested in the movie being a huge hit.  I've been reading a whole lot of "OMG THIS IS THE BEST MOVIE EVER" stuff from people I know are huge DC fanboys (and who didn't think MoS was a crapfest).  It's coming across as a bit desperate.

Was that supposed to be a child predator thing?  I was too busy thinking "what's this idiot doing" to really take in the scenery.

I generally don't feel the need to point out unrealistic/illogical scenes in fictional tv shows but the Dr. in the pharmacy and with the car was just plain dumb.

They're doing all kinda dumb stuff.   I think with the doc she was trying to build up courage or something.  Extremely ill-advised, but somewhat understandable.

Eugene is extremely lucky they ran into Daryl's group, otherwise he'd have been the only leverage they had to get into Alexandria, and that likely wouldn't have boded well for him.  And I'm surprised Daryl didn't notice a dozen guys creeping up on him.  City life is making him dull.

What? Last Crusade was good.

It was good when I was a kid.  Watching as an adult, there are some pretty big flaws.  Most of the franchise characters become cartoonish caricatures, which is unfortunate.  Even Indy is buffoonish.

Kind of a weak first couple of episodes.  Entertaining, but not very consequential.

Any updates?

That's what happens when you do all the stuff on a computer instead of dragging a dude on a rope behind a truck.

I've got a bad feeling about this...

Was that Agent 33 from Agents of SHIELD as the fingerless Savior? Sure looked like her.

That was not Maya Stojan.  According to Wikipedia, the role was played by Jeananne Goossen (though not credited on IMDB).
