The most implausible thing in the ep was the number of rounds the Saviours fired at the truck Carol was hiding behind without hitting anything.


This ^^^

If it wasn't apparent already,  Roll Eyes it annoys me to no end.

One of the guys shooting at Carol had a gun that is in .308 calibre. It'd pass through the car easily.

As for the 'death', this thread isn't spoiler free is it? No? Well I thought Shiva's loss was pretty pathetic. It felt like there was at best 10 or so zombies to deal with. Didn't feel overwhelming at all. Not to mention if they got across that stream and up the embankment they'd have been okay

Not having Amell as Green Arrow in JL was a huge mistake.

Paint drying may be more exciting than a new X-Men book.  Color coded to boot.   Roll Eyes

I've been enjoying the new Astonishing. But that's just me.

I'll give Tom Taylor and X-Men: Red a chance. His All-New Wolverine has been good. He actually has a really good grasp of writing age appropriate dialogue. He handles Gabby, the young clone, really well.

X-23 - "The most dangerous sword ever made. Our healing factor is useless against it. The Murimasa blade was forged by the greatest swordsmith who has ever lived, and was infused with a part of Logan's soul"
Gabby - "I'm sure I'm supposed to be afraid right now, but all of that sounds so freaking awesome!"

I'm sure you're right GARD.  But I often wonder if the writers are pressured to lean towards things that have happened in the movies.

You mean like Nick Fury suddenly becoming a black guy and looking suspiciously like Sam Jackson? Or Jessica Jones suddenly having black hair?

Well George Miller is the guy they have to please, so if they do a good job on the Fury Road figs, then logic says George will expand the license for them.

You may just get your 6" Tina Turner figure after all.  Grin

Nice one Eng.

I'm pretty much in agreement with all of your points. I can deal with most, but the holding the helmet without the thumb touching is weird. The other odd thing for me is the size of the pistol grip, it looks small compared to his hand. Maybe he just has big hands? Dunno?

A great property. Here's hoping they can up their game with the quality that Max and Furiosa deserve.

Star Wars Black continues to be all sorts of fun. Though the army builders are killing me.

Everyone's thinking it, everyone's saying it, but no one at Marvel is listening. They're the loud mouth know it all kid in the class who eventually takes a fall.

And I (for the most part) think that Kirkman has done a pretty good job with the whole dystopian future thing.  I'm pretty sure this is how human civilization would look after some sort of extinction event.  We would become almost tribal again.  Aside from some gaping gaps in logic (where is the gasoline coming from?),

And I've said this before;  I understand that any sort of civilian government is gone, but some elements of the US Military have to be left somewhere.  Why hasn't some Colonel or General reasserted control over some portion of the country and created a "safe zone" with protocols to actually prevent creation of more Walkers and to suppress warlords like the Governor or Negan?  The whole show is a logic gap sometimes.       

Exactly. Fuel goes off after six  months. it's designed to do that. There would be no "gas" by now.

The shooting scenes in this show annoy me to now end. Once again, the highlight of the show were the zombies that rolled down the hil. Some great work by Nicotero's team to make them look gaunt and hideous. Though when they were rolling down the hill all I could hear was the Yakkity Sax music (Benny Hill theme song).

Is Morgan's slow descent into madness driving anyone else crazy? I wish he'd just get it over with.
