    S05.E13: All's Well That Ends Well

    I think the point is that zombieism is completely voluntary. If you don't like it, take the cure. If someone's a zombie and they try scratching people, those people can be cured and the zombie gets shot. I guess the only ones who can't take the cure are ones with fatal diseases in their old life. Before, a zombie brothel could start a pandemic. Now, it's a shot and a lot of explaining to your wife.

    Hulu is the only paid streaming service I have, back when it was "discounted" to $6/month. I like it because they pick up cable shows I used to watch before I cut the cord. It also has shows like the older Treks which are only available on paid streamers. Plus, it's my DVR when I miss recordings of OTA shows like The Rookie or The Orville. I think all the paid services have different models. Netflix charges $9-$16 a month, but there's no ads and everything is available. Amazon Prime video is $9 a month if you don't get regular Amazon Prime for $10 a month. They have no ads and a limited free selection, but you can also buy (or rent) new movies and TV shows a la carte. Stuff like DCU and CBS All Access have a very limited selection and seem to only be worth it if you really want to see the specific shows available.

    Depends on the mothership channel. For me, METV is on 3.2 and often is preempted by 3.1 to re-air their own local news or syndicated shows they think get better ratings. Hope that doesn't happen too much for your COZI station.

    I think I name checked Connor when Diyoza went into the anomaly.

    Is the COZI box in the corner of the screen? There was a massive digital channel switch last week and the number might have changed. You may need to do a rescan if you're using an antenna.

    I still see the ultimate result of the streaming "wars" being a pay as you go system. If you want to own The Orville, you can buy episodes from Amazon for $3 each or buy both seasons for an average of $1.50 an episode. Buying licensed content digitally is probably the closest we'll get to avoiding another subscription. The days of Netflix as a one-stop shop are over. Their success was in monetizing something the other content owners didn't think was valuable. Now each one thinks they can squeeze a little more money out by subscriptions. Frankly, that may last for a while in a country where people would pay $200 a month for cable TV before cutting the cord.

    Which principle?

    Hulu also had a Black Friday special (which I missed by 1 day because I signed up earlier) of $1 a month for 6 months. For now, Hulu is $6 a month. If you wait until all the episodes of Orville air, you can just get the free month and binge. Last I read, they will be premiered weekly, like Discovery did.

    S06.E013: The Blood of Sanctum

    I still don't know where Jordan was, but in the end he was there shaking his head about how Clarke and company blew up a society that was happy in their delusion. Like father, like son. Diyoza's daughter comes out of the anomaly and stabs Octavia, who then disappears. I didn't actually know this was the season finale, but the events pointed that way. I guess they did "better" in the sense that they didn't kill everyone in Sanctum and they are technically free of their false gods. Crazy Russell is the only prime left, I guess. The Dark Commander is in the Eligius computer, I assume. Finally, people give a crap if Octavia dies. Abby is also all the way gone, which was inevitable. I have to wonder if they go to any (or all) of the other planets next season, especially since it's the last.

    S05.E12: Bye, Zombies

    The whole thing makes as much sense as a big room in the CDC with a vault in the middle of it.

    Well, that's it. I can't imagine a faster way to get ABC to cancel a show. Look at Roseanne.

    It's kind of funny. Regardless of all the Renegade crap, Ravi is the savior of the world. He started the series as a discredited CDC scientist who warned about exotic biological threats and became a coroner. A decade later he's in charge of the CDC. He invented one cure, discovered another AND created a vaccine for zombieism. Loose threads like the zombie hookers in Las Vegas and the Senators that were compromised are irrelevant because Ravi was able to mass produce the cure. Plus, the terminally ill can have a second chance at "life" providing the brain supply doesn't run out.

    S06.E012: Adjustment Protocol

    The age thing was accounted for because they had that 6 year time jump before the 125 year cryo jump. But these former teenagers are now into their 20's. Of course, the ones left have experienced (or committed) murder, torture and near genocide, so it's been a rough life on the ground.

    In the pilot, Liv said that even a short term lack of brains made her feel meaner and dumber. I take that to mean the zombie mind deteriorates quickly without brains to replenish it. Curing a feral zombie would probably just leave you with a brain dead human. The chemical cocktail was straight Max Rager. That was all it took to make them understand commands.

    I liked when the chair was set on fire and dropped off the balcony. Then Frasier has one rebuilt exactly the same, which made it the most expensive piece of furniture in the apartment.
