The Walking Dead: Still Review (Article) - 3/4/2014 12:11:05 PM

 Totally agree on the music part, Stoned. That might be why some of the scenes felt like a miss this week and last week. Beyond the song at the end when they're "burning Darryl's past", they lacked that creepy tone score that was there anytime the Governor was doing his thing. Music is a big part of any great drama..

And yep momitchell, TTD behind-the-scenes clip showed that it was a class warfare thing. Guess both staff and wealthy members were there when the zombie incident took place and decided to stay there instead of going home? 

Going GOT is totally fine too as long as they do it right. At the moment, IMO, they're giving too much screentime to filler vs. character development.

 Pretty much what Hanso and your responses say above. Yet again, the writers chose to waste 45 minutes of an episode and have maybe 10 minutes of key character development between Darryl and Beth.

This comes a week after they spent 40 minutes with Rick hiding under a bed. 

As Hanso says above in the recap, if the writers' goals are to bore us to tears before everyone gets to Terminus, they're succeeding. 

I'm all for character development too. But it seems every episode is a quarter character character-driven vs. three quarters wasted air time that could be better spent towards the other characters...

 Enter the Cesar Romero laugh somewhere here.... I love thee, Cesar Romero...

 Stoned, I understand your mistake there. But here's the issue...Hanso has to place a grade. There needs to be a grade...And that's not his fault. As a former managing editor of this website, I made this clear in the comment section of Hanso's first recap. In order for it to show up under the Review section, there needs to be a grade. That's not Hanso's fault...that's something that the CMS requires.

Again...Hanso is providing these recaps so we (the fans) have a place to discuss TWD every weekend. He's doing it for free too. He's not doing it for professional accolades. That's basically why I asserted myself for him in this discussion. He's writing this weekly piece because he's a fan like us. Not for a check.

And now, back to the show itself..Not the last 5-7 comments siderailing it...

Alien, maybe Talking Dead is on Hulu or Xfinity's OnDemand? I know TWD is On Demand...I would imagine we could watch TTD sometime during the week if we miss the Sunday broadcast. Comic Book Men is definitely on OnDemand...and it was rather humorous this weekend. The Clerks staff went up against The Stash staff in a bowling match...

  Yep, Alien...That was a question on Talking Dead too. If these bikers do return on the series, that one guy may remember Rick hiding under the bed. Due to the fact he was under a choke hold at the time he may not remember anything when he wakes up. But one never knows..

They could all meet each other at Terminus...These signs are everywhere apparently. It's to be expected that evil humans also see those signs, not just our TWD heroes...

 Stonedtodeath: "You're going to criticize the writing in a T.V. show with bad writing of you're own?"

Ugh...Pot...Kettle...

Hanso is just recapping a show so the readers have a place to write down their thoughts at our website. He's not looking for professional critic awards.. If you want to call people out on grammar, you shouldn't make mistakes on the post calling them out.

 No problem bro. I totally get it because Jeff is one of those types. You recognize him but can't point him out and it drives you nuts trying to remember where you've seen him lately. He's like Tommy Flanagan (Another Sons of Anarchy alumn). the actor with the facial scar that always pops up on our shows too.

And you're right, Alien...It would have at least made the show more memorable to have Rick sneaking around taking them out one by one like some ninja...

I was talking about my frustration with it with a co-worker today...It would be one thing if this series had 22 or 24 episodes like other series on TV. But no...it doesn't. It only has a certain amount of episodes. With that in mind, the writers should make each minute count... Not spend 30-45 minutes going back to a character hiding under a bed...

The Walking Dead: Claimed Review (Article) - 2/24/2014 2:30:28 PM

 Yeah Hanso...the actor you're talking about is Jeff Kober. He's been in a lot of genre shows and movies...Most recently known for his role as Jacob Hale in Sons of Anarchy (definitely brings out the Biker Gang vibe).

I'm sure we'll see Jeff Kober popping up again. But even with that in mind, I'm in total agreement of what you say above.

Did we really have to go through an hour of Rick hiding under a bed? Couldn't they have spent that time focusing on some of the other characters...like Daryl, Beth, Tyrese, etc.. All those characters were not in this episode. Instead, we get Rick hiding in a bed and sneaking out of the house.

And I get the point...The point is that there are evil people out there. But we've already heard that point, writers. Instead of wasting half an episode on it, you could have showed other characters doing more exciting stuff.

Still enjoyed the show of course. Just wished they showed more screen time to other characters than Rick hiding..

I think I'm going to love Abraham...Michael was right in his Talking Dead commentary...His character brings a little more humor and that's good. There needs to be a little more humor.

Best lines were Mr. Mullet Eugene though...

Sgt. Abraham Ford: So you tell how in the holy hell did you possibly kill this truck?
Dr. Eugene Porter: A fully amped-up state and an ignorance of rapid-firing weapons.

And..

"I'm smarter.." in response to walking back the other direction.

We need a little more humor in the series. Hope Abraham delivers. Great choice of actor too...Michael rocks.

Heroes Reborn: 2015 Teaser Trailer (Article) - 2/23/2014 8:26:39 AM

 And this time....the writers will hopefully keep a tighter leash on the storylines. Like others, I'm optimistic about another go at the concept. The last attempt lost me around season 3 with the multple lives of Sylar..Start over with new actors/characters and don't Jump the Sylar again. 

The Walking Dead: Inmates Review (Article) - 2/21/2014 10:19:14 PM

You are mean, sir. Truly mean. I can't believe I ever vouched for you....I...was....mistaken...
