Quote from: Bullwinkle on October 31, 2016, 04:04:02 PM

Carol's reaction to Renaissance Fairburg was pretty perfect, although I was surprised to see her back to her old fake-nice ways, given the dramatic shift she went through at the end of last season (which is clearly still going on, given the zombies-as-people hallucinations she's experiencing).

It was nice seeing the Bullshit King see straight through her bullshit.  However, I have to wonder if his artificial throne will be able to hold up over multiple episodes, from a viewer standpoint.  Maybe Carol will rub off on him (and vice versa), and he'll stop with the pretentious verbiage.  It just seems silly, honestly.  Carol called that out immediately, though, so the creative team is certainly aware of it.

And maybe Carol and the King are going to hook up, being two sides of the same coin, but damned if I wasn't seeing some Morgan Carol love forming in this episode, which is something I wouldn't have thought much about previously.  I could definitely see them growing old in the apocalypse together (certainly it's a better pairing that Rick and Micchone...blech).

Loved the pomegranate stuff. Bitter on the outside, but sweet inside and worth the effort...who does that remind me of?

Hehe, good catch.  I didn't notice it until the actor who played Ezekiel pointed it out on Talking Dead.  Speaking of which, nice ep of TD with the tiger costume and the scrotum tie, it was hilarious and a nice way to exhale after last week.

I'm pretty sure they are setting up Ezekial + Carol, based on the actor's response last night.  Plus he was with Michonne in the comic so it makes sense a suitable replacement would be a character that died in the comics and is extremely popular smile  Daryl will have to get some other younger chick lol.

That's a mighty pretty thumb, BJ!!   icon_twisted icon_twisted icon_twisted

I've tried a number of clear cases, and I just can't seem to settle on something I really like.  I want something that I can see the jet black finish but the cases I tried all seemed to add some weird glare or giant bubbles, etc.  Presently I just have a "skin" on the back and a shield on the front, then use a thin bumper around it.  It's not bad but the back skin I chose is not working out well.  I think I just need a simple back shield that's similar to the front and keep the bumper.

Buh-bye, Bryan Fuller!! Seriously, I wouldn't be surprised to see this killed off before even premiering.

Ever since the TNG movies ended, I've been begging for a new forward-moving Star Trek show set in the timeline around or after those shows.  Yet all we've been given is prequels and reboot BS.  I can't imagine I'm the only Trekker who wants to see "bold new" adventures instead of one rehash after another.  Isn't the whole point of Star Trek to allow us to encounter the unknown frontiers of space?  Why are the producers/writers to afraid of venturing into new territory?

I say kill that show off and give the franchise to SyFy.  Let them make a cheaper version or something if necessary, at least they aren't afraid to take some risks.  Has anyone watched Dark Matter?  I love that show.  Sure it's been cheesy at times, but it's so refreshing to have a ship-based show that isn't afraid of its own shadow.

I guess I was "lucky" that I was pretty much emotionally prepared for the outcome (see my Spoiler predictions above).  I don't know if it would have been better to watch it "cold" with no expectations, or if it would have just been too heart breaking.  Either way it was still a pretty incredible piece of television, just riveting from start to finish.  With all the arm-chop teases throughout, I thought for sure poor Carl was gonna take it for Rick.  The acting and direction was just all around fantastic.

I really appreciated the extra long Talking Dead to help bring the emotions to closure, it would have been hard to process all that without it.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I think the biggest thing for me was Steven Yuen saying he wanted the death to stay with Glenn, as it was so pivotal in the comics he didn't want to give that up to another character.  Who knows if he really meant that completely, but I appreciated the sentiment.

I have to disagree that the show is just following into the same repetitive themes.  I think as this season unfolds, it will play out differently than people might imagine.  Sure there are some shared elements with the Governor storyline, but really he was small potatoes compared to Negan.  Basically our "star group" is discovering the world outside is a lot bigger than what they thought.  Their experiences having survived "outside" for so long has made them pretty awesome in our eyes, but not so much in the bigger world.  Don't forget they spent a lot of time just hunkered down in camps, Hershel's farm and the prison with very little outside interaction.  How they fit in and adapt and eventually help to evolve within a society filled with actual people are all major thematic changes from the earlier seasons. 

As the producers mentioned last night, this episode was kind of the reset button to help launch and emotionally drive the next big set of storylines.  And I think fans are really going to enjoy it.

Falling Water seems interesting thus far, but I'm not ready to make a recommendation.  I've watched about 1.5 episodes, and it definitely has some intriguing elements.  I just don't know if it's sustainable though.  There's a bit of the Netflix Sense 8 vibe in terms of different characters interacting in dreams, but far less sexy. 

Finished the rest of ep 2, and the show is definitely moody and interesting and seems to have a lot of mysteries to solve.  I guess my question is whether they are just too interested in being moody and mysterious and don't follow through with a coherent plot.  There are so many dream sequences it's hard to tell when you are watching something that's "real".

The acting is Designated Survivor is pretty bad.  It feels like a Summer TV series more than a flagship series.  Keifer is alright, but everyone else is so cliched, and bland.  I think the would have been a better summer series than a regular series.

Well... as much as I love Kiefer, I never considered him that good of an actor.  There's a few things he's good at, but that's it.  Ditto on Maggie Q.  In this case it really boils down to how much you enjoy the premise, and/or the basic persona/charisma of the main leads.  For me I would pretty much watch either of them in ANY show, so having them both on one is a bonus.

I really enjoyed the pilot episode of Timeless. I was busy watching baseball Monday, and forgot to catch episode 2.  retard

I found it sort of a hybrid of stuff like Nicholas Myer's 1979 film "Time After Time" (H.G. Wells using a time machine to chase Jack the Ripper into modern day San Francisco); Stargate; and to some extent the alternate reality-stuff in CW's The Flash. I guess I wonder if the network will support a show with what looks like a really expensive costume, settings and FX budget over the long haul.

I liked the cast/characters right away. Hope to catch up on it soon.  icon_smile I'm not saying the show is genius, only that it hooked me quickly and I guess I'd call it easy to sit down and watch.

Agree with that.  It's a fun show with a likable cast and premise, so as long as you don't get too caught up in the time travel paradoxes it should be a nice one to follow.

I'm interested in Falling Water, which I believe starts tonight.  The previews looked really cool, but I don't remember the exact premise.  Something about peoples' dreams converging.
131  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] The Walking Dead Season 6 (Careful there will be Spoilers!) on: October 13, 2016, 09:47:33 PM
Well, if they follow the comic to any extent, which it appears they are, the show should shift dramatically.  Instead of the on-the-run from one pseudo civilization to another, as BJ describes, it starts to deal with different societies existing together and how they interact and work with one another, or don't.  They've essentially started down that road by the end of last season, and it looks like they are pushing that direction in this one.  Negan is, of course, a big part of that.

Admittedly even the comic is starting to feel a bit repetitive at this point, but I think the TV show can still milk another few solid seasons before it gets to the point where the comic is at.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Maggie has a huge role in the comics, so it would be pretty shocking to see her go now, but they've certainly made major divergences in the past (like Andrea).  The question is who would fill the role that Maggie has in the comic, and there aren't too many strong choices.

Ugh, saw a new analysis that shows what appears to be Daryl's poncho/blanket on the dead body, but worse what appears to be Maggie's engagement ring.  I don't know if I could handle Maggie being the victim, I think that might be the most devastating loss for me.

Not to mention, that would be a big mistake, IMO.

I agree, but then I imagine Daryl and Glenn fans would probably make the same argument, depending on who their favorite is.  From a storytelling standpoint, I could see arguments for all of the characters.

This is not a "who do you want to win" poll, but a who do you think would win.

I honestly have no clue.  Seems to me like there are kind of 4 parties/factions floating around so I was wondering which might have the overall greatest numbers.  Don't forget to consider that people who might not normally choose to vote may be more inclined to vote because it's not an electoral system, just a popular vote.

Not sure if it was just bad timing or too dense (or I'm too dense lol), but I found it kind of boring and just couldn't stay awake.  I will try watching it again.

Finally watched and re-watched both first two episodes.  Definitely an intriguing show and premise, but there are some things that nag at me when I'm watching. 

I think from a gamer's point of view, it's really interesting because it's essentially the ultimate "living" MMORPG, more so IMHO than an "amusement park".  What I don't get is how/why it resets every day, meaning how do you create a truly immersive story if it's just going to reset within 24 hours?  Wouldn't it make more sense and be much more entertaining to have something like a "season" where an entire storyline plays out and characters actually have full story arcs and evolutions?  That would encourage more repeat business as well over the long haul.  Anyway, I guess that's probably not important to the overall story.

So if I'm reading it correctly they are saying everyone on Rick's left is safe because the blood splatter is from his right?  So Sasha, Aaron, Carl and Eugene are all safe I guess.  Not too surprising.

So Maggie, Abraham and Michonne are in the clearest spots, the others seem too far for splatter but who knows.

Spoiler for Hiden:
If the rumors hold true, Abraham gets it first, and then Glenn either also dies or dies later.

I'm really enjoying Warlords - Call to Arms, it's a hex based TBS that plays in very quick/small battles.  It starts out relatively slow but there seems to be a lot of progression to enjoy if you like that sort of thing.  The IAP is pretty unobtrusive.  There are some timers to recover units but in general the better you play the less it slows you down, if it all.  On a side note, I really like the splash screen artwork.  Also, it doesn't seem to have anything to do with any of the original/old Warlords games in case you were wondering.  My only complaint is that they don't do anything with units helping each other like they did in some older hex games.  I don't recall a hex game that does that in quite a while, can anyone think of any recent ones?
140  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] Fall 2016 Season Begins! on: October 04, 2016, 05:17:27 PM
I'd give the Conviction premier a solid B.  If you like Hayley Atwell, you definitely get to see a lot of her  Tongue  The show itself doesn't go too far above a general procedural, and the premier ep had to do a lot of exposition to set things up and give you background on all the side characters.  I think they would have been better served focusing all on Hayley and then slowly introducing the rest of the cast's subplots, more along the lines of Blindspot.  Luckily the cast is generally very likable, otherwise I'd be giving it a pass.

Designated Survivor wasn't as good as I'd hoped, but I still love the premise and it's nice to see Kiefer try to give a more nuanced performance.  Unfortunately as ever his strongest moments are when he's yelling at people, and you only get to see glimpses of that.  Maggie Q has been pretty much wasted in the first two episodes and there haven't been many standout moments. 
141  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] The Walking Dead Season 6 (Careful there will be Spoilers!) on: October 04, 2016, 05:11:24 PM
Just in case anyone is confused, Jimmy is referring to Fear the Walking Dead - I agree with the assessment wholeheartedly.  Particularly the thing with the blood, they use it so cheaply it's crazy.  Having just re-watched TWD Season 1, remember Rick takes a long time to hack a body up and put the guts all over him, and even then it starts to run out when there's some rain.  Here they just take a few seconds and it seems like they are totally immune, and apparently everyone can do it at the drop of a dime.  Overall, the show still doesn't reach the levels of the original for me in terms of making me care about the characters, but in general the back half was a lot more fun to watch. 

Spoiler for Hiden:
Ofelia!  Yeah!  She went from a nothing character to what I'm guessing is Fear's version of Michonne.  At least I hope so.  Also enjoying the sister's level ups in personality and skillz.

So glad they killed Chris, I couldn't stand him.  Although his character was just finally becoming interesting, so I suppose that might have been a missed opportunity.  Ditto with his "bros" - I feel like there was a more interesting story there that was wasted. 

Still can't stand Travis, although watching him turn psycho was pretty fun.  I'd be fine if they eliminated him.  Ditto on Madison, she seems all over the place now.

Druggy Son is starting to grow on me, and I liked his girlfriend too, hope she isn't dead.  Same sentiment with Strand.

Here's hoping for a reunion back in the good ol USA!

Sure it's a bit gimmicky of a start, but of all the gimmicks they've used, this one seems to, at least in Ep 1, be panning out the way it's intended.  The generational differences really seem profound, and the Millennials for the most part behave the way I might have imagined.  The Gen-Xers seem a bit more diverse thus far, but kind of hard to tell.  Anyway I found the first ep pretty amusing.  Actually I have a number of millennial co-workers and friends, and we get a long great, but there are times when something comes up and I can just feel the generational gap.  Half of my group had never seen Star Wars, so that's saying a lot.

LOL, I don't think they are that crazy, Bull.  I think that was a specially tailored trailer featuring the Kingdom, and showing Ezekial, only because they don't want to give away who died.  The previous trailer I saw had Carol in it as well, and a lot of other stuff again not including anything involving any of the victims.

From everything I've heard, they will show/resolve who dies pretty quickly and then move on fairly quickly as well to get this year's plots moving.

I have to agree with this review.  I'd long given up on WoW and only rejoined on a fluke, but thus far I've enjoyed my time in it more than I have in most of the newer, fancier MMORPGs I've tried these past years.  The caveat (sorry to be repetitive) being that I have been playing exclusively (solo) from 100 to 110 (almost there!).

lol seriously!!!!  Thanks for the support  Tongue

I caught "This is Us" last night after seeing a lot of buzz about it.  It's a drama centered around 4 characters who all share the same birthday, and in the pilot are turning 36.  I know it doesn't sound exciting but it is extremely well done and worth the watch IMHO.  By the end of the episode I think you'll see what the fuss was about.

Tonight things start heating up with Kiefer's show, probably the most hyped/buzzed about this season.  Also Modern Family and Survivor (Gen X vs Millennials) return, and Blindspot, AHS are already back.  Wednesday night is probably my biggest TV night.
150  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [TV] Fall 2016 Season Begins! on: September 20, 2016, 10:47:00 PM
So here we are with another new season of glorious TV.  Admittedly things are much different from the way they were in the past given the emphasis on cable channels and streaming.  Hopefully the big networks still have a few good things up their sleeves. 

The one new (network) show I'm most looking forward to is Designated Survivor.  I would have watched it just for the concept, or just for Kiefer, but I just found out Maggie Q is in it too!  Jack Bauer AND Nikita?!?!?  Count me in!  I do realize they are going to try to neuter Kiefer but I can always hope.  But even the premise seems like it could be a lot of fun.  I guess some of the ground might have been covered in The Last Ship but I'm expecting a lot more from this show.

Other than that, the only show I am considering is Conviction.  Not really sure I need a generic crime show, but the cast has Hayley Atwell, Emily Kinney, Eddie Cahill and Shawn Ashmore, so I will give it a chance.

I know there are some time travel shows (Timeless?) and various sci-fi/horror series (Exorcist, Van Helsing) which I will probably give a chance to as well, but I'm not too thrilled about any of them in particular.

Anyone else keeping an eye on the new season?

Delayed until May!

The important bit from the press release:
The highly anticipated STAR TREK: DISCOVERY will now launch in May 2017. The new premiere date is driven by the belief of the creative team that this gives the show the appropriate time for delivery of the highest quality, premium edition of the first new “Star Trek” TV series in over a decade.

Weird.  I'm not sure who is "highly anticipating" it though.  None of my friends, and pretty much all are/were huge Star Trek fans, seem to be too interested. 

Between the wacky monthly fee crap and it being another prequel series, I've pretty much stopped caring.

That is good news for me. Not to free up space but not having apps icons that I never need or use is nice.

I generally just create a folder and dump all the Apple app icons into it.  Just one fits all of them now I think so it doesn't really impact you much but you still have access to all of them just in case.

This is not really a spoiler but more of a conjecture/spoiler.  Based on who supposedly has been in the cast for the first episodes of Season 7, Negan's victim is likely:

Spoiler for Hiden:
BOTH Glenn and Abraham!!!   crybaby crybaby crybaby

I also watched some long analysis on Youtube which indicated it was Glenn.

Anyway, I've gone back to watch Season 1 from the beginning, and wow is it ever a different show.  I had forgotten how many they started out with.  The only character who hasn't changed too much is Daryl.  Carol is so freaking annoying in the first two seasons.  I love knowing how she evolves and I'm excited to watch how it happens.  In fact almost everyone is whiny and bitchy about everything all the time, it's pretty hilarious thinking about how much worse it's gonna get.

I just started Season 2 and I loved Maggie's horseback scene.  It was interesting as I was watching FTWD, I was thinking it was finally getting better.  Then I watched a couple of the old TWD episodes and realized it was still a long ways away.
