JUST SOME ADDITIONAL FOOD FOR THOUGHT Also the song playing on the radio in Rye's car (turn on the captions) and when he first enters the diner is about space invaders and war machines, vis a vie "WAR OF THE WORLDS" I just went back to Episode 1 and the sound in the back ground while Rye was heading to the Waffle Hut was the same sound in the original George Pal movie "WAR OF THE WORLDS" (starring Gene Barry and AnnRobibson) that the Martian War Ships made. Also, Rye was distracted and didn't notice that he was about to be hit by Peggy's 1965 Covair by what we might consider a UFO. INCREDIBLE SERIES,WONDERFUL ACTING,PHENOMENAL SCRIPTING andAMAZING DIRECTING and CINEMATOGRAPHY
with the slow music and long look from the dad to the captain... I knew it wasn't him lol
I was really enjoying the Emma going dark storyline and I even wished they'd taken it a few steps further. This season made me excited again after some pretty awful storylines in years past. I liked that they turned Hook evil but it gets hard to care about villains if its just the same darkness being used over and over agin. They've basically recycled the same plot 3 times over and even though I think its inventive it really is more of an echo than anything else.
I would love someone to corner Andrew Marlowe and Terri Miller to get how they feel about what the two exec producers are doing to the show they created.I know AM is credited with Consulting Producer, but that is a mere formality to get a paycheck. it is doubtful he does any writing or producing.
I found it a bit lackluster as well, but to answer a couple of questions in the review:1 - they don't do the walker guts all the time for VERY good reason (and Kirkman actually addressed that since the episode). The odor fades, and therefore doesn't mask their "human" smell as well; they have to move incredibly slowly with it to blend in, which can pose a danger, and at *any time* something can go wrong - a sneeze, hiccup, whatever - that draws attention and then you're toast. It's an EXTREMELY high-risk tactic which, I'm sure we'll see when it comes back, can and does backfire. 2 - a headshot would not get off in time to not get Denise's jugular stabbed. Almost no one, not even trained marksmen, take headshots that close with a knife to the throat. Even if they got him, a) they could have missed and gotten her, b) he could have even inadvertently stabbed her artery in reaction, or intentionally taken her out in the process. You have half a second as you watch someone start to pull the trigger to respond. I think they needed to give Deanna more to do before she died, so I was okay with this. Her explanation on the Talking Dead was helpful, and I also saw it as a clear support to building Michonne's character. She's been differing from Rick for a while now, and this will make it even more so. Tovah Feldshuh said that she saw them as President and General, and worked best together; Michonne can take over that role. Balance Rick out. I too think it will be Morgan or someone else to get offed by Negan. Morgan needs more to do as he was really only recently "added" permanently, but he was also dead by now in the comics. Someone on a different site even said Maggie which would be horrible! I don't know what I'd do with a terrified kid like Sam. He should have been closer to Jessie so she could cover his darn mouth if needed. All that being said, I don't think the episode was as bad as you seem to think, but I didn't think it was great. I've been a little ticked since the Glenn manipulation (and let's be honest, that's what it was) so they're on a short leash with me right now. Suspense and cliffhangers for the purpose of a good story: excellent. Just to manipulate your viewers? aholes.
I don't know if I was the only one who noticed, but did anyone else see the hangman game that was on one of the windows in the phone booth Ed used? The puzzle spelled out Sioux Falls and had a partial hanged man next to it. I thought that was very interesting.
Hanzee killed the people who were being racist to him. The cashier wasn't racist and he wasn't a threat (since he didn't recognize Hanzee until after he left), so he got to live. It leaves some small hope for Constance, although she has witness potential, and is probably dead. Among the other slurs Dodd issued, he called Hanzee half-breed, so I wouldn't be shocked if he was Otto's son.
That whole scene between Amy and Sameer was a real tear jerker. When he asked if that counted as rape, I was floored. Smh. The whole thing was tragic.
That scene touched me too. The look on Samir's face...wow. Yes, men can be raped...gay or straight. It is good to see a show address that. I watch another show where a woman basically raped two men and it was totally dismissed and never addressed as the rape it was.
Wait a minute, Allison is a CIA Station Chief and she answers a knock on her door at night (Saul) without looking to see who's on the other side? She deserves to go down.
Natalie jumping ship happened too quick. Every step in this process, Alex has looked more and more guilty to the public, while everyone on the inside is getting more convinced that she is innocent. I did not really understand how Liam was able to get custody of Alex again, I felt like it was because they had proof she was innocent and we plotting to loor the bad guy out. I guess I'll have to go back and rewards that part. Not sure why Doctor was part of story other than to point out Simon's persistence and maybe what got him kicked out of Quantico. I don't know where everyone is getting that Liam falls in love with Alex....
Miranda asked Liam what did he see in Alex "the agent he fell in love with or the terrorist who rejected him?" in the pilot I think.
