My "The Walking Dead Thoughts" blog thanks to Godaddy coupon sigler295

I don't care
GoDaddy coupon code sigler295 is a wonderful coupon because it gets you a domain for $2.95.  

This weeks blog about The Walking Dead is for the previous week, not the latest episode. I need to wait for the hubby to watch that one with him. 

Although, I think he is falling out of love with the show. 

I don't blame him. The show seems to drag now. I know they are trying to do more character development and all, but it just doesn't seem to be in a way that is intriguing. Lost was a show that did flashbacks and character development to a T. 

For example, I don't know why, but the scene with Daryl and Beth just didn't work for me. I know they were trying to show the fact that Beth was finally going to cry over something. I GET what they were TRYING to do ... it just didn't have the emotional impact that the writers, I guess, thought it would. So tell me, is it a writing issue? Is it and acting issue? Is it a directorial issue? Please! I want to know. 

The other thing is the big-bad this season. I wonder if this show, like so many others, just gets tiring after so many seasons. Remember Dexter? How great was the Ice Truck Killer! Super sweet, right? Then there was the John Lithgow character, Arthur Mitchell. Pretty awesome, right? Yeah, but then there was the Lumen season, and the Colin Hanks season ... yawn. You just stopped caring by the end. I sort of feel like that is what is happening now. They introduce that new character to Glenn and the new settlement to Carol, and we are just supposed to jump on this bandwagon of disbelief again? I'm not sure I really care anymore.

To prove my lack of interest, in a way, when Maggie went into the bus to find her boyfriend Glenn, I sort of almost wished he was just dead. I didn't care anymore. I also thought it was pretty unbelievable that she was just going to let one walker out at a time -- like anyone would do that in real life. No one thought that MAYBE the walkers might be too much for them to handle by just closing the door on them?  

You all have probably seen the next episode of The Walking Dead. I certainly hope that it improves from here. Otherwise, I'm gonna have to start watching a new show, like Orange Is The New Black. I hear that's good ...

My "Why The Oscars Ratings Haven't Improved" blog thanks to Godaddy coupon sigler295

GoDaddy coupon code sigler295 is a great code that will purchase a domain for $2.95.  

I read an interesting article the other day that stated the reason the Academy added more movies to the best picture race was to help improve television ratings. The thought was, that the more movies that people have seen, the more likely they would be invested in watching who would win. 

They also stated it was a ploy by the movie industry itself to make more money, since people would go to the movies in order to be knowledgeable about the Oscar race. 

The article stated that more movies are released closer to the Oscars to receive a bump in theater attendance than they ever were before. 
I feel like they sort of had it right, but missed the most obvious fact.

People aren't as invested in the Oscars because they haven't seen all of the movies. Plain and simple. If the goal is to increase television viewers of the Oscars, then the obvious way to do this is to stream or provide a way for people who can't go to the movies to see the movies before the Oscars. 

I, like so many others, can't go to the movies. My reason is because of my back. I can't sit in the movie theater that long. Therefore, no movies for me. Other people can't go because of the incredible cost of going to the movies. Also, it truly is way more enjoyable to see a movie at home. Still, others can't go because they have small kids who aren't old enough to even go to the theater, old enough for the content, and/or small kids then require obtaining a babysitter just to go to the movies  -- which is far to expensive. 

If those involved really want a spike in viewership, then the industry needs to release the movies so more people can watch them. Fine, charge more to stream the movie. I don't think that is fair, especially since the reason it's not available for home viewing is because the industry wants to force you to the theater to pay theater prices. Yet, at least it would be available. 

I have downloaded and Netflixed every movie I could so far. That means I have only seen Captain Phillips, Dallas Buyers Club, and Blue Jasmine.

The movies I can't see? Gravity, 12 years, Nebraska, Philomena, American Hustle, and The Wolf of Wall Street. 

I like to be able to pick and root for the people I think deserve it the most. But how can I? I'm not able to see most of the movies. 

If the industry wanted more viewership it's simple. Release the movies sooner. Otherwise, unless you really like an actor, you probably won't watch.
