Think about the implications of it though, robots in disguise themselves infiltrated and paranoid by the recent shifts in the status quo.

I'm kinda glad. A couple tie-in stories aside, Secret Invasion was a mess.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:17 PM)

I always interpreted that scene to mean that asgardians weren't capable of breaking down problems in the same way as humans.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 06:58 AM)

I mean, SG1 was a good show on balance. One of my favourite things was Thor admitting he found humans good to keep around because they so often came up with stupid ideas that nevertheless worked out.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Those episodes were 1969 and 2010.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Stargate sg1 was loosely based on the movie, it thrived on continuity it was impressive how old situations and solutions would come back in unexpected ways. Continuum had it's villain use the characters own solution in two previous episodes against them.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:39 AM)

And yeah, name is based on a part of my surname. Can't remember why I picked it. Lost to memories of the primordial early 2000s.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:37 AM)

Like how Abydos in the movie is in another galaxy on the far side of the universe, but Abydos in SG1 is the closest world to Earth (and that was the only reason the gate could still get there) and even getting to other galaxies was impossible with the normal gates.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:35 AM)

I was very tired when I said that, but what I meant was a lot of stuff that is in the original Stargate movie is contradicted a lot in Stargate SG1.

No, I am referring to before Beast Wars: Uprising. I swear Swindle was a lawyer in a story before "A Brush With Infamy".

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:47 PM)

i cant get the link to work for the life of me. just go to the wiki and type "a brush with infamy" in the search box and itll come up

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:40 PM)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

I swear I've read the story but now I forget which one it is.

When has G1 Swindle been a lawyer before?

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2017 - 07:20 PM)

All I know about PennPenn is he's so good they named him twice.

The other reason to watch shows on DVD is that you can just bust through them at a good pace. I watched the first season of Walking Dead online in a matter of a week. After the first few season 2 eps, I saved the last 3 and watched them in one sitting. For LOST or 24 this also worked very well. Some shows are just better when you watch them in bigger chunks, because the episode-by-episode structure just makes you hate them for dragging things out.

Yeah, not enough zombies. The new humans were neat, as was the entire bar scene. It just goes to show why Rick is awesome and the leader.

Lori, and her wreck, I couldn't care less about. She shouldn't have went off alone, nor should she have been driving and looking at the map.

The Daughter, with a fever and being bed ridden, I am betting is infected. No way its a coincidence. I just think its weird that no one else is saying anything about it. Shouldn't they have seen this before?

Shane, I still don't see as a negative character. Sure he was harsh, but it took that to finally get Hershal to realize what was going on. So far the only things that he did that were negative is passively aggressively threaten Dale and shoot/leave Otis as bait. And for that last one, he was willing himself to stay, but Otis wouldn't leave him.

On Talking Dead, Dave Navarro gets on to the executive producer about the first half and this episode seem to drag on and not enough zombies are around. His response was that this episode was to show the reaction of the characters after the mid season cliffhanger, and afterwards it would ramp up on Zombie action.

HIGHLIGHT to view:
Beth's having a pretty standard delayed shock reaction. If it is the infection, I'm curious as to how she got it. I watched the scene with her mother pretty closely and zombie mom didn't get a bite in. If she had, there would have been an obvious injury, which Beth lacked.

Anyway, for an episode with only two zombies and a whole lotta talking, this was actually less disappointing and boring than I initially feared it would be. See y'all next week.

It was an okay episode, but splitting up the season hurts it , as it has very little punch as a "premier", even a mid-season premier. The bar scene was nice, but in all honesty...that was about it. I agree Lori's car crash didn't really convey the desired impact, and I'm finding I care about her character less and less. Carl's starting to be slightly more interesting, but only slightly, and I'm ready for Dale to just die...

Also I can't believe how many stupid things Andrea does in this episode...even if you think all the walkers are gone/ dead...they had JUST shown how dumb of an assumption that was, and she walks into the barn by herself with no visible weapon...how does she know there aren't any more walkers lurking in there? I'm not riding on the back of the tailgate with them either...dead or not.

This is also rapidly becoming a zombie show without any zombies. I know, "it's not about the zombies"/ We get that, but you really need some zombies, or it gets boring fast.

Still, I think this ep was better than pretty much the whole first half of season 2. I'm also wondering how much truth there really was in anything the guys in the bar told Rick, and how much they were just fishing for info. Maybe this is setting up an into for the Governor? not counting on it, but I'd like SOMETHING interesting to happen...

It happened too fast for me but was the guy in the bar really was reaching for his gun? So Rick was right to shoot him? That bar scene was intense and it was just the conversation.

Shane tried to rape Lori when he was drunk and he did put Rick in his gun scope sights once.

A friend said that Glenn put on some muscle. I don't quite see it.

It's somehow cathartic to have every single character in this show each have their own moment to say that the entire first half if this season was a stupid pointless mistake.

I can sort of see more drama coming, but still this was a heavily fast-forwardable episode

Yeah, I didn't see it until I watched the replay it happens very fast but he goes for his gun, and the other guy just seemed to be setting of warning signs the whole time.

Pretty much this.

After I saw her wreck I said that she is officially the stupidest person on the show. She had absolutely no business going after them in the first place!
I think this whole car accident is just a plot device for her to lose the baby and have no moral qualms brought up about it by the other characters or the audience.
Personally speaking as a new father, I do believe that keeping the baby would be the biggest mistake ever. A screaming newborn or crabby infant are going to be nothing but a big "dinner bell" for any walkers in the area.

Well, the entire thing was just stupid anyway, they could have written in a bit better reason that she needed to run off. Basically Rick and Glenn are sent go to look for Hershel, knowing where he's probably at, and suddenly she needs to go look for Rick?

I was yelling at the tv for her ridiculous reason to run off so quickly. They were barely gone. Also how stupidly she was driving, emphasizing that point even more *with* the windows rolled down.

The bar scene was probably the best scene in the show. When the guy took a leak *inside* with them, that pretty much told Rick all he needed to know, the comment about looking for women backing that up even further about how these survivors were surviving.

Edit: I think the other group is going to find Lori.

So the set-up with Lori last week was just a way of allowing for zombie action this week. Bleh. Though, to be honest, the zombie losing it's face to the windshield was pretty cool.

Meanwhile, I'm guessing they leave the farm at the end of the season. Yeesh.

I thought the barn thing was what would have gotten them evicted from the farm. Interesting that it hasn't, and that Rick and Hershel seem to be fast friends.

Shane is still a bit too over the top, and Dale is getting more annoying. Most of the other characters are being better though, because they're doing a lot less sitting around and ruminating. All the stuff in town was solid.

Lori's whole car thing was just plain dumb. When it went airborne, it was like the writers were shouting "We don't know what we're doing with this character WHHHHHEEEE!"

Overall, it still bugs me how safe the farm is overall. Having a genuinely safe home base that's worth them thinking about protecting and "going to war" over just doesn't feel realistic enough for the direness of the situation. It's easier to produce for TV by staying in one place, sure, but it doesn't seem to be serving the story after this long. It'd be better if they kept on the move, finding interesting things week to week, and giving us a look at the world at large, revealed bit by bit.
