  1. Star Trek Discovery: In today’s episode, Michael channels help from Mr. Rogers......
  2. I cannot explain it, but the Guardian scenes and his portrayal, just kept giving me a Doctor Who vibe....
  3. Since there is enough profanity to fill a book, if this would air on CBS, there would be enough “fudge” for you to open your own Annies Fudge Franchise.
  4. I am developing the fine skill of how to use the fast forward button to efficiently skip the predictable tripe and cliche’ story telling this show serves up...FFW through first meeting, stop at interlude, yup it didn’t go well. FFW through second meeting, stop at conclusion, yup it went well. FFW through all teary eye hugfest crap and all the “will Tilly or wont Tilly” CW drama because, I could not give a Fiddler’s chance what the outcome was. The one bright spot of seeing Leonard Nimoy made it worthwhile. A Cliff Notes 10 minute viewing of this 50 minute piece of juvenile sensibilities is all that is required.
  5. OK Episode despite ignoring lore....
  6. Unfortunately, since the rooftop set was worse than what a prop department at your local high school could manage, I kinda realized no helicopter was going to land the moment she went “outside”...though I must say, I appreciated the Ed Wood jump cut to some stock footage of a helicopter.....
  7. I really enjoy seeing Giancarlo Esposito, but whether it is here or the Mandalorian, I cannot help but thinking "Fring-Lite".
  8. Decent episode, but I am not a fan of cheap fake outs which soured my enjoyment.
  9. Unfortunately, for me, everything you cited was very mildly amusing at best.....
  10. This show needs a gratuitous fan service moment. I want to see, standing next to Beta from the horde, Zombie Jim!
  11. Actually I found the Season finale cliff-hanger extremely satisfactory for the exact same reason you cited. Because it will take years for the finale season to appear, this rather ho-hum cliff hanger allows me to move on and forget about this series until I see it pop up on AMC again. Having zero anticipation for the return of a series is a good thing...
  12. I referenced Carnivale’ when comparing the idea of the opposing forces of two Avatars, and now, Messiah too is cancelled prematurely.
  13. Sometimes the writers are trying to be too clever for their own good. In the final scene when we were to believe that Frodo, Sam, uh, I mean Alpha’s daughter was in the room that the Ring Wraiths..uh..I mean Alpha was approaching, the fake out was ruined by having Negan walking behind her with his hand on the hilt of his knife. Whether the daughter was in the room or not, I knew he was going to kill her.
  14. I am grateful that these hack writers were not painting the floors in my house. For, every time that they painted themselves into a corner, they would look at each other, shrug and say "fuck it!", and leave a trail of footprints in their wake.....
  15. Along the same lines, I recall when I would have to watch the show a day or two later, the need to avoid spoilers. Whether it was a bunch of You Tube vids, Google News items, or reading the papers, I would need to dodge spoiler articles. Now, nothing shows up....no one cares about this show anymore, but I guess enough people still watch which keeps AMC satisfied.....
