@TM2-Megatron Yeah, it is like @TheMightyMollusk says. The catch is that usually means they can contain beef, and I confirmed it by pushing my luck. XD So... yeah, if going to the theater was about watching the film, it might be worth potentially resting on the balls of my feet while technically sitting in the chair, but put it all together... and I just wait to watch it at home. Oh, and ticket prices, always ticket prices.

It's meat scraps. Whatever's left over from cutting up the more choice cuts.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 May 2018 - 11:26 PM)

Well, the hot dogs Cineplex has (pretty much our only big theatre chain) around here are quite good, but I have no idea of the composition, and honestly, it's probably better that way.

@  Otaku : (18 May 2018 - 10:01 PM)

@TM2-Megatron In my case, shouldn't risk the hot dogs, either. Maybe if they are guaranteed to contain NO beef (can't digest it anymore >_<).

We did that amongst ourselves in German class in college. We just called it "Germish", though.

Nevermore, you've peaked my interest and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter

@  Nevermore : (18 May 2018 - 04:04 AM)

The term itself is an example: "English for Runaways" is supposed to mean "English for advanced speakers".

@  Nevermore : (18 May 2018 - 04:03 AM)

Think of it as the German variety of Engrish, only done completely on purpose for maximum hilarity. The target audience are bilingual German native speakers who a) understand the intended meaning and b) realize the absurdness of the end result.

@  Nevermore : (18 May 2018 - 04:02 AM)

It's basically the official unofficial term for deliberate mistranslations between German and English, done for the lulz.

@  Nevermore : (18 May 2018 - 04:01 AM)

Has anyone ever heard of the term "English for Runaways"?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 May 2018 - 01:13 AM)

Okay... Seriously.. The Mystic Knights need a DVD release already.. I keep seeing them pop up in the most random of places.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 May 2018 - 01:03 AM)

Unfortunately no Squidkids at Sea World so no splat zones. Now that would have been a good brand deal to advertise in the park, and would have made more brand sense than friggin' Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 May 2018 - 01:06 AM)

I used to work at Sea World in Florida, in the stroller rental warehouse, where we would regularly have to hose wet popcorn out of strollers. Popcorn hasn't really appealed to me since.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 May 2018 - 06:15 PM)

If I couldn't eat popcorn, I have to admit that would remove part of the appeal for my going, as well. Although the theatre chain up here still has decent hot dogs, I guess

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 May 2018 - 06:12 PM)

Yeah.. Stomach issues is one of the big medical reasons for me as well.

@  Otaku : (16 May 2018 - 05:55 PM)

I rarely go to movie theaters anymore: besides being too fat to sit comfortably in the seats, I have digestive health issues. No popcorn at all. >_<

@  Otaku : (14 May 2018 - 06:31 AM)

The sad thing is that I sometimes think a little social drinking by others puts us on even footing. I'm sure you're all shocked (which emoticon do i use for sarcasm again?) that I'm not good at social situations, and either I clam up or say too much, can't read the room, etc.? XP

@  Nevermore : (14 May 2018 - 12:21 AM)

I don't drink for a variety of reasons. Family alcoholism, can't stand the smell, don't like what it does to people, etc.

@  Waspinator : (13 May 2018 - 11:15 PM)

It's not always other people caring about you not drinking that makes it awkward. You can make yourself feel awkward by not doing something everyone else is doing without anyone even trying to make you do it. Peer pressure doesn't have to be intentional, the desire to fit in can make you do it to yourself.

@  Plokatron : (13 May 2018 - 10:57 PM)

@Pennpenn Same here. I just don't see a need to drink hard stuff even if it's as simple as one sip. Two reasons one I'd probably be as much a lightweight as Doc. Brown and two my uncle was killed in a car wreck due to a drunk driver and I've made a promise to my mother to never drink unless it's very special. I'm even less tolerant of Smoking or chewing Tabaco since my dad had cancer twice due to chewing learned his lesson after he survived round two. And before I get the naysayers on this the doctors specified to him that it was chewing that screwed him up. His genes did have a possible trigger in them that coulc of gone off but according to the docs it only mutated after he started chewing.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 May 2018 - 08:06 PM)

Pretty damn good to. It was significantly better than all of last season save for the pilot. I hope this season is more consistent. A lot of the stuff last season felt like it was just filling time. Stuff that had little to no character development, action, or suspense. I didn't really feel like there were any wasted scenes in this one.

Edit: Oh yeah, if you missed it don't worry they seem to be showing it about a bajillion times it looks like.

Whats with all the dead people on the road in their cars? I thought that once you died, you re-animated? I kept waiting for one them to get bit while salvaging supplies.

They need a campfire scene to establish them though these aren't the same characters from the comic, this lot would probably have awkward silence.

This is exactly what I was hoping the first season would be. A suspense filled character show that takes its time in telling stories. I'd be happy if they took an entire season to tell each story that's contained in one volume of the comic. The first season seemed a little rushed to me, but like Kal says they need to do a lot in the first season to establish the characters and get the audience to the point where they could do a show like this.

We showed the episode for free at our theatre and sold out our largest house - capacity 256 - with the help of the local comic shop.
Yep.

My favorite parts of the episode:

The opening talk: "The journey's been hard, and it's going to get harder, but it can't be as hard as it already has been can it?"

Such poetry has not been spoken since my 5th grade English class.

Then theres:

Lori: Carl, put the knives away.

Carl: Shane, tell her to let me keep the knives, Shane!

Shane: No, go give them to Dale now.

Lori: WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT WHY ARE YOU SO MEAN TO MY SON??!?!?! Also, I'm more mad about that than you trying to rape me.

Before that:

Old guy: "I'm going to go up on this RV and do nothing but look through binoculars but not see the zombies walking -300 miles an hour until they're like 20 yards from us."

And the ending I saw coming a mile away, and no I didn't read the comics, but I figured that would happen because people were smiling and this is basically "Crying Dead" at this point. I mean that in the sense that the writers of this show think that crying and whispering in a gravely voice as a talking voice is A++ television.

I liked the first 2 episodes of this show, but after that I can't take it seriously. It almost seems like the writing team from Season 2 and beyond of Heroes.

In the comic Carl and Sophia had become cute characters though things took a unexpected twist when Carl killed Shane who went off the deep end in issue nine he was shot and it served as a precursor to introduce more characters.

Homer: Pffft, English. Who needs that. I'm never going to England.

It does play service to the story as it plays out. Just wait...

Ok...I absolutely loved the first season....didn't even know it was a comic until well into the first season...read all 89 issues last month in the way of catchup...and to be honest, I found the season opener to be fairly boring.

Sure there were some attempts at character development, especially with Andrea and Rick, and less so with some of the others although still present, and I realize that character interaction is a huge part of this show, but for a season opener, especially one 90 minutes long, I expected more...
To be honest, it fell more to me like a way of intentionally trying to throw comic fans off...

Without spoilers: It seemed like they were putting situations in that were similar enough to some comic scenes that you expected certain things to happen...and then nothing did.

I still liked it but I was really hoping to see a certain HIGHLIGHT to view:
sword wielding, zombie leashing character show up...or maybe see them stumble upon a prison.

I know the show is different from the comic, which is a good thing, but if they make it TOO different it becomes a bad thing. Not talking about the last scene here...more thinking of scenes with Shane and Rick, and the church...

Oh, yeah, and what IS the deal with the bodies in the cars, anyway?...if there isn't some explanation there, that just makes no sense at all based on what we know so far...

The boyfriend pointed this out on netflix over the weekend, and we watched the whole first season. Coincidentally the 2nd season premier was on the same day. So now I've sat through 7 episodes of this thing, and really the writing is not so great.

The first season started off great and had me intrigued, but it just went downhill after the first two episodes. It's hard to believe these things so easily overran the military when the small pack of main characters is able to kill any of them with the slightest thump on the head. I also don't like some of the mechanics of the zombies. Seems oddly inconsistent. Okay, so they're hungry, but they'll just patiently wait around for seemingly infinite periods of time until a plot character strolls by so they can be spooky and jump at them? Like the church scene. Are we really supposed to think the zombies just decided to sit there that whole time? And if everyone gets this horrible thrashing fever before dying and coming back to life, then they sure handled it well by sitting up perfectly straight at church in their Sunday best. I will give them credit though; the zombies in this series seem more capable than any series I've seen, which gives them more fright effect.

And as already mentioned in this thread by theEvergreen, this episode had some bad plot in it. I found myself doing a few double takes and saying, "Wait, did they really just do that?".

Really everything just feels predictable so far. Not a damn thing in this episode was the slightest bit surprising. I'm hoping this show gets better cause I want to like it, but it's getting less watchable with every episode.

I was a little dissapointed with this, I think its just a little too much drama for me. I kinda liked what the blonde girl said to Dale though, he had that coming. I don't get the deer thing at all, was the boy going to pet it?

Hard to believe all those people would have just sat in their cars and died of thirst. And, yeah, regardless of cause, their deadness is a problem in itself.
