M. Morden is a big fan of the HAWT CHIX, so no, not everyone wants that!

And hey, last night's episode had HAWT CHIX and even a little NE(a)GEN too - so...


...yeah, not a very good episode.

The Eugene 'revelation' was not shocking.

At this point, I'm kind of glad that there's only 2 episodes left this season, even if it will just be this lurching buildup to TOTAL WAR for...next season.

Prrrrretty sure the show is gonna have the next death follow the comics.

I didn't hate the episode, it's just that most of this season has felt like filler episodes in an anime series.

Agreed - the Song of Ice and Fire novels are now a poor pale shadow of the show.

Ok so Walking Dead - Urghh that was a dull tedious episode - again.

Without going completely off topic I strongly dispute that as would many of those who have read the books and watch the show. I loved the first few books but as the series continued it seemed the author lost his way and began to spin out the books as much as possible, focus on so very many characters that were of dubious worth and whom often stalled the story progression. He delighted in long and tedious diversions from the main story, teasing reader that pivotal characters and story lines would intersect and advance and then made sure they didn't. The books increased massively in length but reduced proportionally in quality as the years went on.

I have no problem with book length - I read quickly and enjoy a good long tale - however trudging through the last two books was an effort because of the poor characterisation, constant addition of nothing characters and lack of plot progression.

In contrast the show has shown some focus and ability to advance the plot whilst still staying true to the original concept and themes. They have had misteps - Dorne - certainly but nothing compared to the truly awful last two books where pretty much nothing happened. In particular my fav character in the books and show - Dany:

Both show and books have a wonderful character that appeals to so many different people, but in the show they stay true to her character progression and development whereas in the books, GRM seems to be bored of her and wants to have some other Targaryians (who suddenly all appear) take over -consequently she transforms into a feeble puppet for whichever pretty boy is in her bed. The Merrem story arc is a million times better in the show than in the books and Dany behaves as the earlier books suggested given her previous experiences and trials.

ok back onto Walking Dead - It does seem like they will just spin it out until the end of the season and then have the war next season - I guess that's what you can do if you have little fear of being cancelled.

Seems like Eugene is the total dick I always thought he was.

I wondered if Sasha

will be captured and then exchanged as one of the women was in the comics - I forget her name - it would also mean they could do the whole bit with Negan and the guy who tries to rape her - showing his somewhat twisted code

Yeah, definitely a filler episode. The "bonding" between the ladies was also laughably bad. My wife, who loves Hallmark movies, was rolling her eyes and commenting how lame it was.

Rosita's character has taken the spot of most annoying, but it may be temporary. I doubt it will be fatal.

Really, there was just a lot of predictable stuff- Saviors being jerks, taking the doctor (so now Mags has no baby doctor), Eugene reveling in his power and refusing to leave (shocker), etc. But not much actually happening.

I was really hoping they would at least get to the last settlement this episode, but my guess is they want to leave the season on a "cliffhanger" with the war starting. And by war, I, of course, mean slaughter of a bunch of no names and a few characters.

I doubt the war will start this season. I see it ending with the duel speeches & declaration, kind of like the train car scene at terminus. so I'd expect a few more sluggish episodes.

Eugene is going to do what's best for Eugene, after seeing the doctor tossed in the fire, he's not going to do anything to antagonize Negan because he knows someone he loves or himself will die horribly.

Well, last night was predictable. Had to get there some time. Another slow filler.

Did anyone else notice how the angle of Negan trying to force Sasha (a strong woman) to join was eerily close to Rick's crew trying to force Oceanside (lead by a strong woman)? The whole "get on your knees" at the end also seemed rather Neganesque.

Also, Rick's plan was horribly dangerous (explosives tend to be very indiscriminate and shrapnel is a thing. A good blast will make wood chunks into lethal projectiles.) and without them caving inexplicably fast, should have spiraled into disaster. Also, leaving them without guns and giving the guns to some rather uncertain allies seems questionable. But because Rick is always right, it will work.

The zombies looked neat. Though, I wonder how crabs hadn't devoured them.

It is typical Negan - straight out of the torso-jerking school of method acting.

It is like the only thing JDM knows what to do with the role?

So, Sasha?

Looks like:

Spoiler:
...she'll be playing the role of HOLLY here.

Only question is, since Denise is already dead, who gets to play the role of "Denise" to Sasha's "Holly"?!?

I don't know about that episode. I think Rick & The Gang's actions in it were downright villainous but it's all tied up with a neat bow at the end because one of the characters thanks them for robbing them. Perhaps it would have been more compelling if their attack ended up killing some people and they had to live with that. Another in a long list of could-have-been-interesting moments but nothing can break away from the Rick is the good guy no matter what he does.

Yeah, the Rick is never wrong/always good guy schtick is getting very tiresome. At least they could have the self awareness to show some people having moral qualms and maybe add some depth (he who hunts monsters...), but nope.

When it comes to the Walking Dead, Game of Thrones and Supernatural type shows (ongoing arcs etc) I always find it's best to hold off judgement until one has the chance to properly bingewatch.

What feel like interminably dull episodes often contain gems of plot and nuance, which aren't fully appreciated until consumed in a oner.

Why is the CGI so bad in this show?

It looks like they have a great makeup effects staff and terrible CGI staff. It's interesting because early on, when budgets were lower, they often played stingy with the zombies. Now, they have a big budget and are solid on standard effects, but use some really questionable CGI. Now, CGI is generally very expensive, which is why TV sci fi generally has pretty cut rate stuff. You can do a lot with standard effects, but it requires some pretty talented folks and usually time. Unfortunately, CGI makes it easier to throw some money at some subpar effects and call it a day. CGI abuse is very easy to do. At least they haven't gotten obnoxious with lens flares and motion blur, right?

They got the best makeup in the biz but that dear they had on the other week was the worst CGI I've seen in 20 years. Can't have it all I guess.
