Best season of The Walking Dead so far! 5 Stars! A++ show! Would watch again!
I saw a terrible and terribly popular movie the other night and I told the person I was watching it with that it could have easily come from the mind of *.
I will take the "terrible" part if I can manage the "terribly popular" part some day  :angel:
I'm guessing the person he was watching it was terribly confused why someone would go by the name of Asteriktos.
They know who * is. The movie was the legoS movie.

Clever enough for everyone to recognize that they made at least 10 of the jokes in the movie and panders to the dominant ideology whilst pretending to do otherwise.

So yeah: *

Since when do Lego movies pander to any ideology?

Everyone knows that Lego movies are all about adding more bricks to the wall.

Getting closer . . .

Further info, Shiny evidently is concerned I would harm him in RL, so much for that affair.

lol! orthonorm is nothing but a big ol' teddy bear. Maybe a teddy bear that no one understands most of the time, but at least not one that would harm anyone.




or would he?

This is probably the ultimate blasphemy, but I don't like The Walking Dead. I think it's a garbage series that hasn't added anything new or original to the undead genre. My biggest criticism with the series as well as 99.999% of zombie films and media is that they all take place after the world has been overrun and the apocalypse has unfolded. They are post-apocalyptic. IMO, I find this to be boring, lazy, and overdone. I don't want another survivalist disaster movie; I want a pre-apocalyptic film that starts at the very beginning of the zombie epidemic and shows how it gradually progresses and how society deals with it while slowly crumpling. The most intriguing part of the zombie lore is speculating how society broke down; what happened to the military and civilization? What happened to the man in the shower when the dead started rising? What happened to the kid on the school bus? What were humanity's final days like?

Most zombie lore ignores this entirely and fast forwards to the very end of the apocalypse where society has already been destroyed, the world overrun, and none of these questions have been answered. And it revolves around a bunch of boring post-apocalyptic survivors who just try to survive. Bleh. Boring and unoriginal.

My favorite zombie moment of all time was in the original 1978 Dawn of the Dead where the National Guard trucks and armed rednecks are seen patrolling the countryside and trying to maintain some semblance of order (I always wondered what happened to them btw); honorable mention goes to the apartment SWAT raid scene. This is what I like to see. It's the apocalypse in its beginning stages gradually unfolding and this is how individuals and society at large is dealing with it. This is society's last days. It's much better than that post-apocalyptic garbage.

Started watching this season (10?) of Bones on amazon video. I guess this'll be the last season, based on how they're talking and the downward trend in ratings over the years.

Currently watching Harvard vs. Yale in football. Later, I'll catch up on "Blue Murder," a British detective show.

I about banned the person above. Clicked in the wrong place. In any case about to start watching The Blacklist. And speaking of that I wish they would put Boston Legal on Netflix! James Spader is awesome in that. Oh and The Practice? Anyone remember that great show? It was the prequel to Boston Legal. James Spader started his legal career on the small practice in The Practice and when that got cancelled he had moved to a big firm there in Boston.

I am finishing up The West Wing. About finished with Season 6, the next to last season. Toby gets on my nerves because he so moody and self-righteous, but I like him still. I like President Bartlet best I think. And Donna. Donna reminds me of a woman I was in love with. She's got the angelic aura about her, like the girl did. She pairs well with Josh, too, helping temper his smug arrogance with her humble gentleness. They playfulness between them is well played, as if the obvious love between them. I am angry I was a clip on YouTube where they kiss though.

I agree on that being a good (and probably more interesting) show/movie idea.  WWZ does this (and I shouldn't have to specify that I mean the book, not that abortion of a movie).  But I don't let it take away from the goodness that is The Perambulating Deceased.
