Marvel Live Event Dropped Major Bombs! (Article) - 10/30/2014 7:48:53 AM

I'm more of a Marvel fan, but I'm not a DC hater.  Really big fan of DC's Vertigo books back in the day.

Marvel Live Event Dropped Major Bombs! (Article) - 10/29/2014 8:32:26 AM

Just makes me depressed that Marvel doesn't have the X-Men and Spiderman movie rights. 

The Walking Dead: Four Walls and a Roof Review (Article) - 10/28/2014 11:15:26 AM

Pointing out the past episode's going into the watery basement and not using the highground to their advantage reminded me that when that happened, I was thinking no way I would go into that water that you can't see the bottom of.  We've seen too many walkers still trucking on, even with no legs.  Who's to say there weren't any along the floor covered up by the murky water waiting to chomp on a shin? 

As far as who is with Daryl?  I'm just positive it is not Carol.  So either Beth or an unkown person is my belief.

I've read that the body count will be higher this season and we may lose some regulars.  So, if I had to guess, I could see Carol being killed off, maybe Glenn or Maggie.  They may get rid of Tyreese's sister, to drive his character.   I don't think they will get rid of Tyreese, as he is kind of the suragate protector to Judith.  Speaking of Judith, I don't think they will kill off the baby, since they didn't do it at the prison.   Too many people would be pissed if they got rid of Daryl, myself included.  Like I said in other comments, I only read the comics a little past this point in the show, so I really don't know what they may do. 

Constantine: Non Est Asylum Review (Article) - 10/27/2014 7:23:15 AM

I'll keep it on the DVR schedule.  I guess I'm the only one that thought the lead over acted a bit at times.  I also picked up a few times the actress playing Liv had her English accent pop in, but otherwise I kind of wanted her to stay and be a regular.  I only read a couple Hellblazer comics, so I'm coming into it as a newbie.  Maybe that is why I didn't mind the Keannu Reaves movie.

The Walking Dead: Strangers Review (Article) - 10/20/2014 8:01:14 AM

I too thought Bob had been bitten for a bit by one of the underwater walkers, and maybe that was why he was crying and was going to leave the group.  But it seemed too much time had passed between the scene in the watery basement and then back at the church.  I think they ususally turn quicker than that.   So yeah, there must be something else going on with Bob.  

When we first saw trucker hat Terminus dude, I thought we were seeing a flashback, because I was sure Tyreese beat him to death.  Though I thought it was strange that they would introduce that guy to kill him in a single episode.  The actor has kind of familiar face and seems to be one of those that you kind of know will be around for a little while at least.  Sometimes casting itself gives away a spoiler.

Like Eldogg, I read maybe 10 to 20 comics past the point we are at now, but I just don't remember it all.  The spoiler was deleted already, so I didn't see it.

The Walking Dead: No Sanctuary Review (Article) - 10/15/2014 7:20:34 AM

 A lot of problems could be solved if they updated the commment section coding and a few moderators.   Use UBB boards that allow for hidden spoilers that you have to highlight to read, and then mods who can delete/edit posts.  I guess money at Mania could be tight though.  I remember during the Cinescape days when there was actually a print edition.

The Walking Dead: No Sanctuary Review (Article) - 10/13/2014 12:37:27 PM

My dvr picked up the intro to Talking Dead, which I normally don't watch, but when I saw it was going to be Conan, I decided to look for the replay and set my DVR to record it.  Haven't watched it yet but will later.  I watched one when Andrew Lincoln was on and one with Yvette Nichole Brown (aka Shirley from Community) and I think Norman Reedus. 

The Walking Dead: No Sanctuary Review (Article) - 10/13/2014 10:06:23 AM

Pretty good ep.  I normal queue up several episodes so I can binge them, but decided I didn't want to wait.  I suppose we aren't done with all the Terminus peeps as the leader (Gareth or Garret?) was only shot in the leg.  I'm sure they'll be back later in the season, maybe the half-season finale?

I read some of the comics, but only up past this point to the next major city but its been a while so I don't remember the details.  This show deviates pretty far so it doesn't matter anyway.

I have to agree about the firework shot  igniting the gas cloud being unlikely.  Though as one who was a teenager who did idiotic things, such as bottle rocket wars with friends, it is not out of the realm of possibility.   As I have been hit and have hit people at slightly shorter distances than shown.  Though we're talking one in ten or fifeteen shots.  Though I guess the gas cloud is a much bigger target than a person and that was a much larger firework than a bottle rocket.

Mania Exclusive Interview: Katharine Isabelle from NBC%u2019s Hannibal (Article) - 9/10/2014 8:45:18 AM

I thought she did an excellent job on the show.  In fact, I can't really think of any weak performances on this show.  The people in charge of casting choose actors well.  It doesn't really have anything to do with her performance, but yeah, I find her pretty attractive too.  

One of my current favorite shows and hope it continues on for a at least a few more seasons.

The Walking Dead: "Never Let Your Guard Down" Trailer (Article) - 9/8/2014 2:38:21 PM

I could be wrong but I don't think there would have been a fine, since it is a cable channel.  Even Comedy Central, at times (usually very late)  will air uncut version of the South Park movie with all the profanity.  I think they self-censored.  I've read that AMC put Breaking Bad on a quota of using the f-word at only once per season.

Either way, while I usually save the first half of the new seasons of Walking Dead until the Spring half of the season starts, I don't think I'll be able to hold off this year.
