What an interesting episode of The Walking Dead!

In this episode a lot happened. We get to see that poor Bob, as I am assuming we all already knew, was bitten. You didn't have to read the comic books to figure this out, like someone told me was the way they knew it had happened. It was aptly foreshadowed in the show by Bob walking out to the woods and crying by himself.

I liked the fact that Bob had that creepy laugh with the Terminus people. However, I was a bit disappointed that we didn't get to see that played out. Would you get the zombie virus faster if you ate tainted human flesh? I kind of wanted to know the answer to that one.

Am I the only one who thinks it's weird that the military dude wanted to leave right away? I sort of got it when he wanted to protect weird/smart guy. However, once that situation had been taken care of, as in killing all of Gareth's people, what was the problem with waiting 24 hours for Daryl and Carol? The original threat was gone, the gang fixed the initial problem of a direct threat to weird/smart guy. I thought that was dumb. Also, why would Glenn and Maggie leave with military guy? Haven't they all been through enough together with Rick to stick by his side? Didn't they all agree to not leave anyone behind? Glenn, Rick's group, your group, are the people that saved you numerous times. You are just going to run off with this new group of people? Plus, Rick agreed to go with them if they just wait a few days for Carol and Daryl's return. Glenn, these people won't wait for Carol, the lady that saved them, what makes you think they would risk their lives to save you? Carol, Rick, Daryl -- these people have proven time and time again that they will risk their lives for others in their group. This decision made little to no sense no matter which way you looked at it.

It is clearly just to move the plot forward in some absurd manner.

I'm not sure if it was just me and the device I was watching the show on, but the church massacre scene was annoying because it was shot so darkly. I couldn't see a thing. It was very irritating so it took a little bit of the essence away from it.

Also, did Gareth not just say there was no reason to try and beg for his life, then goes on to do just that?

Shut up, Gareth.

Plus, from a writing standpoint, this is just overkill. We heard their explanation from Gareth's mom to Carol, and also Gareth in the boxcar in the flashback scene. Too much needless reiteration from TWD writers.

I am curious who is going to come out of those woods.

There better be a fantastic story behind Maggie and Glenn leaving to justify such bad writing to get them to go with the group.

My The Walking Dead Thoughts Blog thanks to GoDaddy coupon 149scott

This blog is made possible thanks to the great people over at GoDaddy. I got my very own blog, this one, for super cheap. You can get your own right now for $1.49  thanks to GoDaddy coupon 149scott.

I just finished watching TWD. The episode titled "Strangers" was a good one. However, I do have some problems with it.

I get that we are going to be debating this season what's too far and what's still within reason, morally speaking. That's fine. The problem I have is the changing arc of everyone's characters.

Rick has been annoying for so long because while everyone else "got it', Rick was always lagging behind. Always with the is this right? Should I be a farmer and just opt out? Then kicking Carol out of the group (smh). Well, as the seasons progressed, Rick painfully became aware that this is the world we live in. He even states it in this episode to Bob -- something along the lines of, "this is reality" to Bob's "this is a nightmare and nightmares end".

I'm annoyed because why are we even having this discussion? It's painful. Bob being so gleeful and hopeful? Annoying, but he can be happy, that's fine. Yet, to be thinking at this point that this isn't reality, is just plain stupid. Be happy finding the joy in the world, but know what your world is.

Michonne is the best. She doesn't think of the past. This is the new reality. Doesn't mean she doesn't miss Andrea. She misses what has happened since the apocalypse. She does not dwell on how things should be in relation to the old world.

Carol going to a place now where she doesn't trust herself is simply idiotic.

Carl is the worst. He goes from sweet. To being okay with killing Shane. To knowing he has to kill people or be killed. To hating his dad. To now being wishy-washy about finding the good in people and all people can't be bad?

This is like the stupid nature-versus nurture argument. Can't it just be both?

Not killing the people at the sanctuary is stupid. They don't deserve to live is absolutely reasonable. Going back and killing them is not reasonable because it puts your group in unnecessary harms way.

Yes, sometimes the lines are going to be blurred, but I think most of the time they would not be. If someone threatens you, they die. Simple. If people eat other people, they die, simple. Don't know if this priest is telling the truth? Perhaps hold off. Not hard people, not hard. Let people out of trapped boxcar? Yes. Kill the governor? Yes. Forgiving the girl from the governor's group because she made a mistake. Yes.

Ask me another, I bet I get it right.

I beg of you to not let Rick go back to questioning who he has become. He is their leader. He is doing a great job. His story arc at least keeps pushing forward. The others and the back and forth is awful. This is your world. This is what you have seen. Haven't we left the delusions behind after the governor? After Andrea made terrible mistakes in that regard? After having to kill your own mother? Almost losing Judith? What about for the rest of them? The list goes on and on...

I hope this doesn't go too off the rails.

My The Walking Dead Thoughts blog thanks to GoDaddy coupon 149scott

This blog has been created with a GoDaddy coupon. I love GoDaddy. They make it so that I can blog about my favorite tv shows, and The Walking Dead definitely fits that category. If you would like your own blog, check out GoDaddy coupon 149scott and get your own blog for $1.49.

This is not a recap, this is my thoughts on the show. It's for those who have watched.

Our Scooby-doo gang have found themselves in quite the pickle. I think the way the show opened was great. I mean, right to the action. That was perfect. I loved how beat up the group looked. Great job by the makeup department. It looked real. It looked like sweat dried upon sweat. I really liked it. I liked how even Daryl looked nervous, and why not? The shits going down!

What I did not like about this scene was something I found out later, after googling. I've watched every episode of the series, so I'm not oblivious. I kind of knew the guy at the end of the trough was important, but I didn't know how or why. It was only after I read online that it was the guy from that couple Rick and Carol had met. The ones that they gave the watch to and told them to meet them at a specific time? Well, we saw his girlfriend, Ana being devoured by walkers, but we never saw Sam, until the moment at the trough.

I guess maybe there should have been something more defining to Sam, because I did not know who it was until I sought it out on the internet.

Now I know, later, when Carol picks up the watch, she recognized it as the watch they gave Sam.

(FYI, in between writing this blog, I just watched The Talking Dead and people in the audience didn't know either, so I feel better)

It seems a little cliche that Glenn is saved at the last second. I would have liked to have seen this done a bit differently, so it was not so much knick-of-time. Also, the double fake-out didn't help either.

This brings us to Carol. Her story arc has been absolutely one of the best. She was an abused wife who could barely speak up for herself and is now such a warrior. She gets kicked out of the group by Rick, who thinks her killing of the group members went to far. Now, Rick is of the same mindset, realizing sometimes you have to make the hard choices. It's also interesting to note here, that Rick's arc is always a bit delayed from others. He comes to conclusions much slower than say Shane, Andrea, or Carol.

Speaking of Rick, I like this new Rick.  He is the guy I would follow. He makes hard choices. He knows how to handle himself in a fight. He is there to protect the group first and foremost. I wouldn't follow a guy, like he was before, who was so wishy-washy he couldn't make a decision because he didn't know if it was right. A guy who would wonder if it was morally okay to kill someone, even though they are trying to kill you.

The world has changed buddy, glad you are all caught up on that.

Which leads me to my next thoughts.

In some regards all the characters on the show have had to change their moral compass. What is too far? What needs to be done? What is, under these new rules, morally okay? No, this isn't the same society, and people will have to be killed, but coming up with reasons for and against are becoming more murky. Remember now, when the Governor killed that leader because he was going to make them all get killed? That was clearly the wrong choice to kill the guy, but taking him down as a leader would have been justified. Sometimes, you have to do what you have to do. Glen, stating that they had to let the people out of the cars was the right thing to do? Yes, that was the right thing to do. Killing the people at Terminus, in my opinion, was the right thing to do. Going back and putting yourself at risk to do so was not. You kill to stay alive. You do not go back and kill people for vengeance. Yet, it's a small, fragile line, because now you have to ask yourself, will those terminus people, shall they live, go on and do that again? That's not okay.

an oldie but a goodie
And finally, Tyreese. He doesn't want to be a killer. Yet, he has to be one. It was pretty awesome/awful to see him get to that conclusion by beating a mad to death with his bare hands.

I'm excited for this season. This is the best premier yet. Like other people, I was super expecting to be at terminus all season. I was very pleased to see us move quickly through that. Not because I didn't think terminus was a good idea, but because in life the terminus would have happened this way. They would be cannibalized quickly, or they would have tried to fight there way out. I liked it.

My The Strain Thoughts blog thanks to GoDaddy coupon 149scott

This blog is made possible thanks to my addiction to television watching, love of scary television shows, and GoDaddy coupon 149scott.

I just finished watching the season finale of The Strain.

First off, I would like to say that I so appreciate the old man telling the little boy what was going on and challenging Eph to tell his son the truth. I mean, come on. How about inserting a little reality into a fake television show. If I had a son Zach's age, I would most certainly tell him everything that is going on in order to protect him. My God, vampires are afoot. It's not time to coddle.

The show kind of goes downhill from there, in my opinion. Eph and Vas find the liar where the Master is hiding out and at least they have a moment of clarity and go back to get the rest. They do, tow Zach along, and enter.

Honestly, why do the not buy more of the ultraviolet lights? My God, it works. They have time. Jeez.

Cut to the chase, they find the Mater and he is all by himself in an attic. Eph, old man, and Annoying Zach break all the windows, an bit too easily a might add. Really? This Master can't fight them better. SO random. Then the Master somehow winds-up outside and everyone just stands there, watching him. Cut his stupid head off people! What the hell!

No, the Master scurries away. God. They all deserve to perish.

After seeing all this, Zach, like an imbecile, fakes a damn asthma attack and the dumb-ass gang goes back to Kelly's house to get more inhalers.

Cut to an utter ridiculousness, Zach is faking to get a photo album. One, that's stupid. Two, that kid is, what, 9? All his pictures would be on a computer, not in a photo album.

Kelly is there, and Eph does not shoot her right off the bat. He does shoot out the glass, but Kelly just lurches away.

The show might be more stupid than the books.

Yet, I watch. I don't know what that says about me.

I hope in season two Zach isn't so doe-eyed. It kills me. Toughen up.

Thank God the show is over this season, it will give me a break from the just plain awfulness of this show. It will come back, again, when absolutely nothing is on to DVR and I will end up DVR'ing it again. Ughh.

My John Adams Miniseries Thoughts blog thanks to GoDaddy coupon scottgot

This blog is made possible thanks to GoDaddy coupon scottgot. Get your own blog for the rest of September for just $1 a month.

I have been actively watching the John Adams miniseries from HBO.

I know, I know. I'm a little behind. However, I have been enjoying HBO shows lately, so I thought I would give this a try. I also really, really love history, so I thought this would be a nice experience.

Here are my thoughts. I can't stand Paul Giamatti. He is such an annoying actor that he essentially ruins the series for me. He overacts, you can tell he is acting, and I just find him gross.

However, Laura Linney's turn as Abigail Adams is excellent. I haven't really seen much of what she has been in so I have no bias. She is superb in this role. I love every moment that she is on the screen and I find myself wishing that there was more time devoted to her.

What I do really enjoy about the series is the interaction between the founding fathers. I like seeing Jefferson interact with John Adams, I like seeing the relationship with Hamilton. It really helps the history you learned in school jump off the page a dazzle your mind.

However, I really don't feel like I learned much. As strange as that sounds. I don't feel educated by this series and I don't feel dazzled by anyone's performance outside of Linney's. I feel like a lot of hollywood friends got together and it was the "cool" thing to be in this series.

That's my take on the series. Overall my recommendation? Skip it.

My Veep Binge Watching Thoughts blog thanks to GoDaddy coupon 149scott

This blog is made possible thanks to GoDaddy coupon 149scott. Get your own blog for just $1.49.

I must admit, I did not get a chance to watch The Strain yet as I have been binge watching Veep.

I totally understand why she keeps winning Emmys for her role.

What I like about the show is Tony Hale. He is so funny. I don't even mind that they basically took his Bluth character and gave him a job next to the vice president. I could watch Buster/Gary every single day of the week.

I love the reaction of Amy on the show. You just root for her even though she is pretty evil. You root for her because she is no where near as bad as Dan.

The one guy that is so perfect at being a chump is Mike. You vacillate between wanting him fired and hoping he gets fired so he doesn't have to put up with Salina anymore.

I love the fact that they have brought into the fold some of my favorite character actors. The boss from Office Space (Gary Cole) is in the show and I just adore him. I love Kevin Dunn.

I have deduced the reason we all like the show so much is because Salina says things that we wish we could say. She has no restraint. She swears like a truck driver.

I just hope that Gary gets truly recognized some day and that Amy becomes POTUS and Dan has to get Amy coffee. That Mike gets to have ducks with his new wife and that Jonah is forced to live with his mom.

I'm not sure where the relationship is going but I was loving Kent and Sue. I was literally smiling ear to ear every time those two had an interaction.

I have one episode left, the season three finale. Yay!

My "The Strain Thoughts" blog thanks to GoDaddy coupon 149scott

Make-up artist should be fired. Looks like a mask over a dude's face.
I was able to write this blog because of GoDaddy coupon 149scott. By using that code, I was able to create my very own blog. I use my blog to talk about show recaps, well, sort of, I mostly just say what I think about the episode. If you are reading it, you probably watched it. You really just want tot know what someone else thought.

You can get your own for just $1.49 today!

This week's episode is pretty representative on the books. It just lacks any imagination and highlights the fact that we really don't care. Oh, and the fact that Eph is super-duper annoying.

Outside of the books, this kid can not act and his candy cane attitude and big bright eyes of "where's mommy" is just f'ing killing me.

The end scene where he is looking at pictures of his mom, I'm just so sick of his naiveté that I want to shout at him "you stupid moron! Grow up! She's a vampire! Do you really think she can't return a phone call?"

But what do I expect from him? Like father, like son, as they say.

He goes out, albeit, I'll give him he started his search during the day and finds her phone. Okay. Then he goes back to the apartment, no ex-wife - fine. Now it's dark. What? You go to her friend's house? At night? Go in a basement where it is pitch black? No backup? His shit should have been killed for pure stupidity.

This is how people died in all the 80's movies. Maybe that's why people my age can't stand this shit. Because in the 80's when you went into a dark basement that you didn't even KNOW were filled with vampires, your shit got killed. Now, in the whatever it is we are calling ourselves now ...  20-fourteens, people can go into basements with 95.9% probability has vampires and their shit doesn't get killed? So freakin' stupid. Completely unbelievable.

Then Eph comes home, well, home-base to old man's weird lair. He proceeds to tell his son that he has not given up hope. FFS. Stop it already. This universe exists after Night of The Living Dead. After The Walking Dead. After 28 weeks later. After From Dusk Till Dawn, and every other vampire movie you have ever seen.

Get it together.
