Knocking over the ladder was so 'c' list movie script writing. A sprained ankle? Really?


I didn't understand why he was in hurry to get down. She'd have been better to just climb up with him and let him pass.

Two time jumps in one season.  Two major characters gone (for now).  A new status quo (just like an event comic).  Buncha new characters (just like an event comic).  And a nine year old girl who carries a .357 Magnum.  Like it wouldn’t knock her down if she could even lift it.

Seems like a lot of holes to backfill.


This one felt really, really jarring. As a mid season finale this jump would have worked much better.

And you forgot happy helpful Negan. Which feels right after seeing broken suicidal Negan last week.

Okay......so apparently it's not zombies speaking.....it's most probably the introduction of The Whisperers. A group who wear zombie skins and guts and move within heards as cover and protection, etc.


What about the "They are evolving" line?

Dunno? The implication is that they're no longer easily distracted by shiny things (noises, lights, etc)

Squirrel! What was I saying?

What the great googily fuck did I hear? Did one of the zombies speak when the humans were hiding in the mud? Did they? Huh?

I was wondering who leaves crates of dynamite just sitting around? Why was it there?

But why does hiding in the mud work? What if they don't have lungs to push air through rotting vocal chords?

I thought that explosion was a little much for dynamite. Also, why were the walkers just lemminging through fire and off the bridge? Wouldn't this just mean all the walkers would eventually walk into the ocean or the Grand Canyon?

Why would a single bullet set off dynamite?

Why didn't he just take his shirt off to make a bandage instead of pulling some nasty ass piece of cloth out of an abandoned building that was nothing but a pinch point for directing the walkers to him?

Yeah, nothing says Zombie apocalypse like a nine year old girl bad ass.  The suspension of disbelief continues to get harder.

You mean like nobody notices a helicopter in the sky even though there are no other aircraft?

And best of all...Hit Girl Judith!   Roll Eyes

Yeah...wasn't quite expecting that.

I guess for the marketing material "Rick Grimes last episode but we're going to leave him alive possibly to do more with if our ratings tank instead of finalizing it" was a bit long.

And Fishdude picked up on vocalizations from the zombies in the upcoming scenes. And another ................................time jump

I typically don't binge watch TV -- but I have been watching several episodes of HOHH per week. Only the finale left to go -- but I've heard that I may not like it.

I liked the end. Thought it was pretty much the best ending they could have had for it.

I'm way behind in Marvel shows. Not sure I'll bother with Luke Cage. Maybe I'll watch Defenders next -- then Jessica Jones season 2, and finally DD season 3. I'm not thrilled that he's gong back to the look from season 1 though. I like my heroes dressed up -- that's part of why I have little interest in Luke Cage.

His costume makes sense in context and actually the change in costume plays into some of the events (all I can say). But definitely watch Defenders first. It would be really confusing without it.

Good to know this is worth the effort.

We're about to get underway. Just need to finish Daredevil, Mayans M.C, and The Good Fight first.

No Making of a Murderer in the mix? We finished Daredevil last night and Making of a Murderer the night before. Haven't watched the Mayans from this week yet.

10 episodes on Netflix.

I've watched 6 so far. Very good 'haunted house' story that 's being called a spooky version of 'This is Us'. I think that's because the storytelling is told with a mix of present day and flashbacks. And a lot of family drama. The haunting part can be subtle and limited -- but is done to great effect.

Completely agree with this. We watched the whole thing in 3 nights.

At least Gregory is gone. I'm not sure I agree with Maggie's change in personality. I also don't know if I buy into the group being so fractured in their governance.  Definitely feels like writer/direction shift.

season two wasn't bad.never did watch the first season.

I told Mrs Nerd I still expect him to turn up. I really expect Misty/Colleen to be spun off.

Scotty and Adam have a wacky time discussing new things! And then things take a weird turn at the end.
