TV Wasteland: Submitted For Your Approval (Article) - 12/31/2012 6:08:55 PM

Strongly disagree that "The Dead" is "fairly indifferent."  Very effective chiller about an American soldier navigating his way through the zombie apocalypse in Africa.  Part of what makes it so effective is that the zombies are back to the early Romero silent variety; none of this loud moaning crap.  Silent, deadly, killers that . . . just . . . keep . . . coming. 

Shock-O-Rama: Complete Guide to Cabin in the Woods (Article) - 9/23/2012 10:38:16 PM

No list of monsters is complete without the Woodland Critters from South Park.  Hail Satan!

10 Greatest Moments in Batman History (Article) - 7/18/2012 6:46:24 AM

BetenoireVagabondster - Resurrection started when Superboy-Prime altered reality from the paradise dimension in which he was trapped, causing Jason Todd is restored to life, breaking out of his coffin (Wiki page quote, but in my memory).  He was then in a coma, had memory loss, and then picked up by Talia and put into the Resurrection Pit.

Abraham Lincoln's Five Oddest Traits (Article) - 6/20/2012 7:43:15 AM

redvector: That's complete nonsense that Lincoln was bisexual in any way.  It is based primarily on the fact that Lincoln shared a bed with other men on a regular basis prior to his marriage.  That was quite common back then, given the dearth of hotels in rural America.  I was recently at a Laura Ingalls Wilder museum in De Smit, South Dakota, and the home that she used to live in, they would border approximately 20 people a night who would all sleep on the floor in a 20x20 room.  That's just the way things were done back then.

Slam Dunk Amazing Spider-Man Clip (Article) - 6/13/2012 6:16:03 AM

Looks incredibly lame.  First off, why do the writers think having Peter Parker showing off amazing skills while he's trying to keep a secret identity is a good thing?  Secondly, if they're going to have him dunk a basketball, that's the best shot they have of him doing it?  Not encouraging.

Walking Dead: Beside the Dying Fire Review (Article) - 3/20/2012 11:24:33 AM

8)  Forgot to add that I agree with the commentator from above that Michonne was much too far away to have struck the zombie.  Additionally, she supposedly swung her katanna with only one hand and with a shoulder-width stance, not stepping into it.  Sorry, that's just plain lazy writing.

Walking Dead: Beside the Dying Fire Review (Article) - 3/20/2012 11:20:08 AM

1)  The zombies were not eating Rick's (or anyone else's) horse in the beginning of the episode - it's a dog.  Hence, we have no idea when the zombies began to venture out of Atlanta.

2)  Dr. Jenner told the group that it takes about 2 hours to re-aninmate after death.  So it makes sense that after Rick killed Shane, he was by the body for a few hours before Carl found them.  That gives the zombies 2 hours to head towards the shots, and thus not be in the woods when everyone was walking around the woods.

3)  Biggest error I saw was that it was established the zombies were coming out of the woods behind Rick and Carl.  Then it should have been easy for them to run to the house.  But when they start to move away, they notice that the zombies have already moved out of the woods ahead of them, and blocked their way to not only the home, but also the barn.  Lazy writing.

4)  Lighters cannot light gasoline.  Not hot enough.  Would be nice if that movie/t.v. trope were retired.

5)  Get rid of ninja zombies on the show - where did the one that grabbed Patricia come from?  They were out in the open.  And if they did see nearby zombies, why weren't they running?  Nice nod to a recent zombie kill in the comic book, though.

6)  Hopefully the writers will be reading all of the criticism of Lori's reaction to Shane's death and flesh it out in the first episode next season to make it more rational why she acted that way.

7)  Unless the actor who plays Carl stops aging, how much longer can he be on the show?  Going to age rapidly, particularly with 7 months in between seasons.  Perhaps they'll just ignore it.

Good season.  Look forward to more.

The Walking Dead: Judge, Jury, Executioner Review (Article) - 3/5/2012 1:50:19 PM

Forgot one huge bitch about last night - like in Buffy, where every time someone got turned into a vampire they also acquired Matrix-like Kung Fu moves, it seems that the zombies here all acquire ninja stealth techniques.  How in the Hell does Dale walk up to a partially eaten cow, turn around and face the direction he just came from, and see a zombie standing right there.  Very, very lazy writing.  Also, why would the zombie leave a partially devoured cow to attack something else?  It's already got its meal.  Could have easily had Dale happen upon the zombie (or perhaps more than one zombie), turn around to run and trip.  Much more believable.

The Walking Dead: Judge, Jury, Executioner Review (Article) - 3/5/2012 1:40:41 PM

invisioner - Kirkman has already said that if he had known the comic book would last this long, he'd have kept Shane around a lot longer.

ddiaz28 & Johnnyathm1 - good points about Daryl just not giving a rip; missed that for some reason.

Last 2 episodes should be great to watch, and it'll be fun to see who else gets it besides Shane.

The Walking Dead: Judge, Jury, Executioner Review (Article) - 3/5/2012 12:42:16 PM

You guys are all missing the boat about why Dale was killed off - it's fallout from Darabont's firing.  Remember when Darabont was first fired, there were stories about how cast members were in an uproar and ordered to shut up.  Further stories came out that at least one long-time Darabont associate was so upset he wanted out.  We can now confirm that was DeMunn.

Something like this is probably why Sophia ended up being killed off.  In the comics, it's obviously easy to keep kids around, in the background, and not have to worry too much about them.  But in tv/movies, these are actors/actresses who get paid a lot of money, even for menial roles.  While Carl has a storyline, there wasn't one for Sophia.  As stated by others, following this logic, what the Hell is T-Bone still doing around here?  Serves absolutely no purpose.

Regarding Randall, it's apparent that he's hiding his true nature.  I don't see him as a Linus-type, only because Linus was the leader, and I think it's apparent he's not.  Surprised they didn't have a scene with Maggie asking him questions to see if it was true that he went to school with her. 

One revelation that hasn't been discussed is how Daryl knew that Shane killed Otis, and he is absolutely fine with that.  Interesting development.  I wish they had explored this before offing Dale.  In the comics, remember that (spoiler) Rick kills another human when that person became a threat.
