Hey... ? How about the Final Rose ?

I read Juan Pablo was a pain and the production staff hated him. It really showed in the interview after the finali.

I give the relationship two days.

Claire finally showed some common sense... You go girl.

Andi will be  the new bachelorette.. She is a D.A. and prosecutes gang members..   I usually dont watch the Batchelorette but maybe this time.. I dunno.. I  need to get a testosterone patch I think.

I'm really having a hard time coming up with a motive for kidnapping someone in a zombie apocalypse

Breeder .... It's lonely out there after the apocalypse... I will refrain from getting more specific

Daryl and his new gang rescue her..

My guess is that they all make to next year.

Breeder... good point. I hope Daryl rescues her, but I don't like the new gang. I hope they all make it.

Quote
I will also repeat that I think Lizzy is the real killer of the two infected people and it gets Carol off the hook.

This season... so ... slow... ugh. I have defended the show in the past, when it was admittedly slow, but I tried to point out that this was never meant to be an action/adventure show, but a drama.  And it's not that this season is going nowhere exactly, they are dangling that carrot. But man... they're taking forever to get anywhere. And if Terminus doesn't turn out to be a huge payoff (good or bad), that's just gonna kill it.

More on the slow pace. Last season when it was slow for a couple episodes and they focused on the governor, I was fine with that. In fact those were some of my favorite episodes of the series I think. But the thing is, that was a really interesting character, and the entire story I found interesting, and it had a great payoff, and the episodes were like fairly long short stories. This season there are moments of character development sprinkled in, but it's more like we get a couple pieces of flash fiction each episode with one or two significant moments. Looking back I'm gonna think "hey, remember when Beth got kidnapped?" or "That scene with Carl eating the pudding was great."  But... will I ever want to go back and rewatch the entire season, or even individual episodes, start to finish?

What really brought home the pace to me was when Carol shows up again with Tyrese and the kids and he hugs her and says, "I was wondering if you made it out. I didn't see you." and she's like, "Oh, I didn't make it back yet from my supply run and just saw the end." (/paraphrasing). Seriously. Carol has been gone for episodes, but in TWD time it had only been a matter of hours. Rick gave her the boot and came back, only had time to tell Daryl and bam there's the Governor at the gate with a tank. They have been dragging stuff out a LOT.

What if...

The Rick/Michonne/Kwaarl sequence was shown out of order.  What if Beth and Darryl are doing their thing while Rick is recouperating and him running into the gang happened before Michonne met up with Papa Bear and Little Bear? 

What if...

Darryl was in the house.  What if he was the guy they were beating up on in the basement??



Note: I have no previous knowledge of this.  If this turns out to be true...I'd just like to say I called it here first.

Wow! What a good theory. When they surround Daryl, look who's there:



Bandana guy that saw Rick under the bed! Was he killed when he was strangled or just made to pass out? I assumed he was dead... but if he wasn't then this photo doesn't prove your theory. If he was killed, then I like where you're headed with this.

How many could one group have after the Zombie Apocalypse or how many does a prop department have who is making a TV show about the Zombie Apocalypses ?

Right...and the guy Rick killed is not in the pic of them in a stand off with Daryl..

I vote..No flashback. They will add Daryl to the gang, find Beth and turn into good guys and rescue her.

I am out of town Sunday and may not be able to watch... Considering cancelling my trip..

After Zombie apocalypse: Still limited by numbers in circulation. 

Prop department numbers:  Touche.

Still, it's a detail worth looking at, even though they likely overlooked it...we'll see.

Probably should.  We have to make priorities!   Grin

We shall see if it is a flash back or not.  I still think it's possible.

That's as good a theory as any, I think. I'm really interested to see how this episode plays out, and bracing myself for inevitable disappointment. Any chance the writers have pity on us and leave our characters intact after the loss of Herschel?

A good producer knows that you cant keep an audience emotionally drained and have them keep coming back for more. There is a limit.

I think they will end this year on an uplifting note or two rather than killing off another main charactor. They already faked Rick's death ( he was just unconscious) and it was too much.

They may kill off Bob or Sasha but that is to be expected.

Portlandia....glad I don't have to watch the first three seasons to enjoy it. It's a great way of poking fun a leftist hipsterism, something I have a soft spot for because I am into all that sort of stuff in some degree even though I am right wing. I even lived in a small community like Portland once. Best neigbours I ever had, even though they were mostly liberals. They were hipster hippie types. We even agreed Obama is a (removed - Mor).

Yeah, I like it too. The first few episodes were great. The rest of it not so much, but still pretty good. It's a rare thing to have a TV show that actually mocks liberals.

Still watching The Wonder Years because it's on Netflix. I should be done with it but like I've said a couple time our internet is limited because of satellite. So I am limited on enjoying Netflix. We are going to go back to AT&T in the next couple months though. I still find Winnie Cooper amazingly beautiful and immaculate. I mean as a character and archetype more than anything like I wrote here:

http://politicalanimalman.blogspot.com/2014/02/ave-winnie-gratia-plena-dominus-tecum.html

Winnie Cooper is the wise woman that Proverbs speak of. "A wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish will pull down with her hands that also which is built." (Prov 14.1)

The grace of a diligent woman shall delight her husband, and shall fat his bones. [17] Her discipline is the gift of God. [18] Such is a wise and silent woman, and there is nothing so much worth as a well instructed soul. [19] A holy and shamefaced woman is grace upon grace. [20] And no price is worthy of a continent soul.[21] As the sun when it riseth to the world in the high places of God, so is the beauty of a good wife for the ornament of her house. [22] As the lamp shining upon the holy candlestick, so is the beauty of the face in a ripe age. [23] As golden pillars upon bases of silver, so are the firm feet upon the soles of a steady woman. [24] As everlasting foundations upon a solid rock, so the commandments of God In the heart of a holy woman. [25] At two things my heart is grieved, and the third bringeth anger upon me:" (Eccles. Ch 26)

It's a great show for creating archetypes and all sorts of virtues which Aristotle points out in "Poetics"

I have a strong feeling that your theory is far more correct than my last one. 

***SPOILER ALERT***

My strong feeling comes from having read a bit of the future in the comic books.  Yes, the show doesn't exactly follow the comic books, but it seems to take the themes and runs with them.  So if you can read this, I am pretty sure they are the cannibals who would have killed Dale if this followed the comics.

Double Post...

Will just use this space to admit that my theory was wrong. I actually like how they did it better, though.  Rick & Co. is a man on the run, and he doesn't yet know it.

Especially for me, since the last time I saw her before this episode was a few weeks ago when I saw her playing the role of a murderous nurse in the series Dexter:

Anyone see the end of the season for The Good Wife last night? They killed Will off, which should make the next season interesting. The actor is going to talk about his leaving the show on David Letterman tonight for those of you who watch the The Good Wife. It was not something I was expecting. They were saying it was going to be a big episode last night. I was guessing Peter was going to get kicked out off office or arrested or something. Never expected Will to die, especially like that.

Aristotle says in the Metaphysics that "in mathematics goodness does not exist." It is a rather great quote to show to any math teacher when they tell you how important math is. Give them a riddle: I am not tall, I am not short, nor big nor take up any space but simply am. I have no name but I am.

Still watching The Wonder Years because it's on Netflix. I should be done with it but like I've said a couple time our internet is limited because of satellite. So I am limited on enjoying Netflix. We are going to go back to AT&T in the next couple months though. I still find Winnie Cooper amazingly beautiful and immaculate. I mean as a character and archetype more than anything like I wrote here:

http://politicalanimalman.blogspot.com/2014/02/ave-winnie-gratia-plena-dominus-tecum.html

Winnie Cooper is the wise woman that Proverbs speak of. "A wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish will pull down with her hands that also which is built." (Prov 14.1)

The grace of a diligent woman shall delight her husband, and shall fat his bones. [17] Her discipline is the gift of God. [18] Such is a wise and silent woman, and there is nothing so much worth as a well instructed soul. [19] A holy and shamefaced woman is grace upon grace. [20] And no price is worthy of a continent soul.[21] As the sun when it riseth to the world in the high places of God, so is the beauty of a good wife for the ornament of her house. [22] As the lamp shining upon the holy candlestick, so is the beauty of the face in a ripe age. [23] As golden pillars upon bases of silver, so are the firm feet upon the soles of a steady woman. [24] As everlasting foundations upon a solid rock, so the commandments of God In the heart of a holy woman. [25] At two things my heart is grieved, and the third bringeth anger upon me:" (Eccles. Ch 26)

It's a great show for creating archetypes and all sorts of virtues which Aristotle points out in "Poetics"



I like that show a lot too.

Random TWD thoughts...

- Wild speculation ahead. Did that guy who got beat and then was killed (who Daryl had issues with) really do what he was said to do? Is it possible that the leader framed him? The leader seems less crude, more stable, and has gone out of his way to treat Daryl well. But he also seems to have significant power in controlling and perhaps manipulating the group. If he wanted that other guy dead, that would have been a good opportunity to do it since he knew everyone would buy a dispute between he and Daryl. Or, for another speculation pulled out of thin air, maybe he saw that Daryl and that other guy weren't going to get along, and he figured one of them was going to kill the other, so the leader chose to protect the awesomely awesome Daryl and got rid of the other guy. One other thing about that scene, they did a quick shot of a guy by a car, and the look indicated that he knew what was up before it played out. Ok, probably not actually anything to any of this. Certainly. Probably.

- I thought Terminus was abandoned when they got there. I mean, it just looked like a run-of-the-mill building at first. I had thought it was going to be a military base or something all this time. Then they just pushed the gate open, so I thought 'well that isn't good.' I assume they had people watching, but I didn't see any. Then they just stroll into town. What post-apocalypse group allows more than half a dozen armed strangers to stroll into their home? Definitely more than meats the eye. (har har) Don't know what it is though, and I'm not one for speculating, so I'll just leave it at that.

- How long is Glenn going to have to sleep alone on the couch ground when Maggie finds out that he lied to her about the girl that was with the Governor's group, and even let her hug her, sleep in the same place, etc.?

- So who dies? At least one significant character has to, and I'm not thinking Bob is significant enough. Do they toy with us by having Sasha meet up with Tyrese only to kill one of them? They wouldn't kill Michonne would they? Rick and Daryl will always live (unless they want off the show). What happens in the comics with the geek guy? Does he ever get to Washington? Would they kill him as well?

With all this drama drama drama I don't understand why orthonorm doesn't like this show. TWD is like Buffy, only cooler!

As to who may die, it wont be Daryl. he has a significant female fan base now, so he's good. Some say Carl but that would suck...  They were going to kill off Carol but the actress talked them out of it, so she has been on borrowed time this season.

Btw.. Mary ( Denise Crosby) is Bing Crosby's grand daughter.

While puppy-sitting at a friend's house I am watching 'a young doctors notebook'

With Daniel Radcliffe and Jon Hamm playing the same character, a Russian doctor sent to the middle of nowhere.

it's dark comedy with good folk music. Wink
