Man, this show is getting better and better. I am not sure if satellites are disabling the world, or the machine Randell has underground. Who knows? I want to know more about the other parts of the country. Its obvious Monroe is going to get offed at some point, and Neville will take over. Just the how and when is in the fun of the details. Isn't there only two episodes left in this season? They have a lot to wrap up!

 I'm really digging this show too, but there is some lazy scripting. For example, when they set off the explosions to rescue Nora's sister, all the troops just walked away and left her unguarded? Even my wife called BS on that one. There's usually about one of those moments every show.

Also, I'd really like to see Myles kill more of the big bads. He seems to be knocking a bunch of low-mid tiered guys off, but missing the payoffs with some of the bigger bosses. I'm really hoping this will turn into a big ol' Game of Death fight-through at the end.

My money is on Myles killing Monroe.

 Has Charlie become tolerable?  If not I'm still out.

Believe it or not, Hanso, Charlie has become tolerable.

 Cyanide, if i get some free time im going to check a few eps out.  U better be right :)

 @Rogue. I thought that too, but I think it more likely that he doesn't kill him, and the season finale payoff is having Gus Fring take over the militia.

 My main peeve is why at the end of the ep Myles didn't kill Schlosser. He was down, Miles could've grabbed his sword or a gun and killed him. Problem solved. I was also expecting Schlosser to be Nora's dad (star wars anyone? lol). I don't think Monroe's going to be killed off. They're going to play the high level intrigue for a while, perhaps a season or two before a regime change comes. The whole Grace and Randall thing has a Second Foundation feel to it too, and I like that. Read Asimov if you wonder what I mean. Overall. The series is coming along nicely, they're building to a nice season ending finale, like Heroes was. I just hope, unlike Heroes, that season 2 isn't ho-hum.

Fuck that I wouldn't call her tolerable yet!  She has had some good moments and at least this episode wasn't a total dedication to her "manning up" so she was restricted line and character wise.  BUT the show is becoming more tolerable to the point where its worth suffering her a few seconds here and there to see the rest of the story.  They need to get bigger than this brother and sister story, so far it's dominated the series and it needs to expand and focus on the overall picture.  The ratings took a dive on Monday as part of it's steady decline, so if I were you Hanso, I'd wait until the spring and see if it gets renewed, cuz if it doesn't, then don't waste your time!

Also, if they want people to believe that there is validity in the story, then they are gonna have to get the actor that plays Aaron to start losing weight, they've been walking for weeks and they don't carry the pounds of crap food that it would take to make him as fat as he is, he's got a belly like he's carrying twins and not one other character or extra on this show is even chubby!  I don't care how good his character is getting, being that fat in this world is just too much to ask anyone to believe.

Hanso, Charlie is tolerable. She has definitely been less whiney the last two episodes. Holy crap, Wish! My thoughts exactly. That dude has been on the road for quite a while and being so big is not very realistic.
