    bit of an underwhelming ending. I felt we should have had some more hiding on Danny Street. Maybe see where Flex got the others to safety. I thought they were going to get Admiral Whiskers and Ezekial fight each other to become God.

    I know I'm replying to this a year later , but for any future posters I'd like to point out that from the points on the scoreboard Penny was leading as MoH and Bernadette as Best Man/Woman

    Allah wouldnt have a visible personification. He'd exist but be invisible since that how his followers perceive him.

    So after a couple of slower episodes we're back with a doozy. 1. I replayed the whole Ace of Base scene a few times. Really Jane could be a series all by herself. A question. Is the Karen alter played by a different actress to Jane ? Or is it just hair colour and makeup ? 2. They really didnt think through the whole lets free everyone bit. They should have realized some of the inmates would actually be dangerous. The butts scene resembled the Flood from Halo. Are they going to have to blow up the facility? 3. Mr Nobody is Heath ledger's Joker with reality warping powers. Its a bit of a pity he wont ever make it to the big screen.

    Isnt this what you are accusing Seth of doing ? Altering the plot to take the easy way out ?

    regarding making Kelly seem younger, remember it works the other way too. Putting bulkier clothes on present day Kelly to make her seem "thicker". Giving her slightly harsher makeup. Even posture works. Older Kelly was standing more rigidly and tended to raise her chin more.

    So follow your own line of reasoning. If there is a group of people who are not useful to me. Am I then free to oppress them ? There is a reason why various Bills of Rights all start with "Everyone is equal". Ie just by existing you have rights. If people had to prove thier value in order to have rights we'd be living in a very different society.

    Query . Why should they have fighting spirit at all ? Running and hiding is as valid a response as fighting back. Fight or Flight after all. Thats why we have boot camp to recondition people's instinctual responses to run away or freeze up. Its not having two more rifles that makes the difference. Its having a disciplined person to rally behind. Yes I agree Kelly was a bit overpowered. But I find the calls for a successful physical resistance to actually be imposing masculine ideals of heroism on them. (Also a minor point from previously . Since the Moclans sent 4 shuttles we can assume a larger force than a dozen Moclan soldiers. )

    So they were failing just like most slave revolts did when the actual military showed up ? What does fully armed mean in this context ? How many women are armed ? They arent manufacturing weaponry so theyre armed with whatever they smuggle in. Who trained them? Whatever training they had would've been ad hoc. And once again they'll have zero experience in actual combat.

    And how many slave rebellions succeeded ? There Haiti and thats it. The best a slave uprising could hope for was to run away or die. As for the Moclan women being disorganized and in in fear , Well they are all of them inexperienced civilians facing an actual military. Consider if any of those warrior women have even been in combat before.

    Unfortunately you've fallen into a trap. If a person only has value because they're useful to you, what happens to people when they arent useful ? Also I find calls for more agency unrealistic. Oppressed minorities dont have agency. Thats why they're oppressed. Would you say the emancipation of slaves lacked agency because it was done by white abolitionists or liberation of the concentration camp because it was done by non Jews ?

    Just started watching . Maybe its just having Dalton around but I cant help wondering if this show could work if it was set in the 1910's as a Penny Dreadful sequel. Aside from Cyborg nobody has any powers that require them to be in 2018. Or even 1970.

    However try finding a betamax, VHS or laser disc player right now. The laptop i bought last month doesn't even have a cd /DVD drive. We could wind up with storage devices we can't read.

    Yes but the initial comment referred to scheduling. Which remains the purview of Fox broadcasting which is not Disney.
