    Meh, not even sad I'll miss this. Female Spock rip off, and on top of that all I can see is Sasha. She wasn't a good actor in TWD, and I don't see that changing here. Too many aliens as crew... it makes zero sense timeline wise if this took place before TOS. We go from Humans and a Vulcan on Enterprise to a diverse alien crew on this series, back to humans and a vulcan on TOS.
    The "I can sense death" guy already bothers me. I feel like its something that's going to be overplayed, and unlike Counselor Troy, there is no way to be vague about his abilities in a way where he could be wrong and it be believable.  The captain isn't the anchoring main character, and seems weak in this trailer... if "Sasha" is always questioning her orders, it will make the story worse.

    there were some really awesome moments
    Lagertha and the queen laughing it up over her killing the earl, then Lagertha showing up and taking her out. 
    Loved it when Siggy hands Ragnar the knife Horik gave her to kill the children. Mwahahaha
     
    I think that Ragnar didn't want to say forever and ever Amen because he thought it might be blasphemy to his gods

    I'll have to go back and watch the eps again but I think the guy that killed Sigvard went to war with Lagertha. If so he's seen her prove herself worthy of Valhalla while her shitty husband just sits around pissing and moaning. It is in his best interest spiritually to follow a warrior if he wants reward in the afterlife. Sending in three dudes to beat the crap out of your sleeping wife is some pretty bad form, the tension of the feast goers at the sight of Lagertha all fucked up is palpable. He got what he fuckin deserved as far as I'm concerned. 
    Invading a former allies turf and then expecting him to blow it off is more bad form. I was kind of hoping Rollo was going to kill Horik, pretty obvious Siggy hates him. Maybe she'll get fed up and start stabbing eyes herself   Hopefully Jarl Borg will get his come upins as long as asshole Horik doesn't get in the fuckin way. Ragnar wont need him if there are ships and shipwrights in Lagertha's territories (we know she has the man power).

    When coming to understand that one religious delusion, in this case blood sacrifice, is interchangeable with another, cognitive dissonance falls apart. He shows an almost contempt for the bread, crumbles it and throws it down. Its insignificant compared to what he has seen. When he tries to get back in with jebuz a devil attacks, but when he really goes looking for the thing it is not there; another delusion confronted.  I vote Athelstan will be the first to go full blown atheist. I'm also wondering what he is eating/drinking. Contaminated food made people trip their balls off and alcohol was safer to drink then the water.
    Aslaug named the baby after her father and his, Ragnar has a "snake in his eye",  Lagertha. He still isn't over his first wife and Aslaug is letting Lagertha know that she knows.

    If M. Night Syamalon was the director he'd hopefully have the brains for the plot twist to be the trainers actually being slaves to poke'mon.... Thus somehow breaking the 4th wall when it comes to people playing poke'mon.... Because they are somehow slave to it....
     
    Still I'm waiting for the reboot of Dragon Ball. Where JJ Abrams directs it. The ultimate finishing move in it will be Solar Flare. /sarcasm

    I was hoping Bjorn would though an axe in that douches chest at the dinner table. I can't believe Lagertha puts up with that.

    it was good to see Ragnar and Bjorn reunited. And what Lagertha had to do to convince her new husband to help clearly shows how much she still loves Ragnar. As for poor little princess Aslaug, who had to suffer the dirty conditions..geesh, I'm not liking her character anymore than how she started. She can learn a thing or two from Siggy and Lagertha...theres more to life than having babies...i hope they kill her off soon...frustrating to see her complaining...ok we get it, your father was Sigurd

    Emotionally devastating episode, brilliantly done. They build up the feeling of comfort and family unity (we could stay here/ Tyreese telling Carol he trusts her etc) and then the bottom drops out and the fall is hard.
    It became painfully obvious as the episode moves along that Lizzie can't escape her psychotic delusions, she probably has had some kind of therapy before, look at the flowers/count/breath are taught coping skills. There were flowers in their cell at the prison.Maybe her parents, maybe a professional. Looking back on her not stabbing her dad it was because she wanted him to come back. I thought Lizzie might throw Mika to the walkers, let her get bit kinda thing. I couldn't help but see people saying she was going to kill Mika, but I didn't expect she would straight up gut her sister. For the mentally ill it is a small step to go from killing animals to killing people. That was a tough scene to watch.
    When Carol said Lizzie would have let Karen and David turn, then I knew it was Carol. Her distress in those eps was her guilt at what she had done, Tyreese wants her to live with that. They will share the pain of Karen's loss together.  Carol did what she thought was right for all of them at the prison, did what she had to do with Lizzie. Tyreese understands that. He knows she loved the girls. She thought about taking Lizzy away but they both knew that would just screw them all. They knew what they had to do.Carol stepped up again.  He could forgive her because Carol didn't act out of malice, it was necessity, maybe even mercy. Carol says Do what ya gotta do twice, she was ready to die if he so chose. Karen didn't suffer or know what was happening, it was quick and that was enough for Tyreese because he knew how sick she was. Lizzie didn't suspect or feel anything either. He knows he needs Carol and he does trust her and like her. She helps fill the big sister void he has with Sasha gone. I think this whole experience has bonded the two in a special way.
  17. Ladywriter liked a post in a topic by Sledgstone in Music Recommendations?   
    Over the past month I've been listening to a large collection of top hits from the 90s. Its 250+ songs that I've listened through a couple times now. I thought I liked the 90s, but honestly over half these songs were crap to me. Mostly because there were so many love songs and rap songs in the mix. Some love songs were ok, but after listening to so many they become annoying to me. This mix must not have been that good because it was lacking alot of rock and hit country songs from the time.
     
    I've listened to some rap in the past, but I can honestly say that I can't stand the genre at all now. After listening to the hits from the 90s, almost all rap seems to follow the same patterns. First off, there is no actual singing unless its the chorus and almost every chorus is a woman singing about something that doesn't appear to have anything to do with the actual context of what the rapper is talking about. I know rapping is people stringing words together, but I realize that I want to hear actual singing in my music and not some guy talking fast.
     
    Anyway, in the majority of rap songs I've listened to.. the rapper is always talking about 1) How hes better than everyone else in terms of: has more money / hoes / material possessions / drugs / best raps / etc. that are all better than everyone elses and everybody is jealous and wants to emulate them. 2) Is talking about abusing and taking in excess: sex with random women with no love involved / smoking the hell out of some weed / drinking alcohol. 3) Violence such as: Shooting people that talk shit about them / glorifying themselves in terms of killing people in their past / potentially killing more people.
     
    So.. yeah.. Rap music seems pretty shitty to me. Of course, much of this can be considered gansta rap and that other rap could be more wholesome or have better context. Will Smith had some decent rap songs, I also enjoyed Tupac's "Dear Mama". Mostly because it was about the guy's past and the song was actually about something instead of just talking about being an amazing person that throws money at the cameras while wearing gold chains in music videos. There was also a song from Bone Thugs N Harmony called Crossroads that was decent. I couldn't make out half the words, but at least these people were singing and it was about their dead friend.
     
    P Diddy / Puff Daddy / Sean Combs seems to be one of the worst rappers I've ever heard. He is literally talking in almost every song while sampling everyone else's songs. I listened to "I'll Be Missing You" and I can't stand the song because its a sample / remix of The Police's "Every Breath You Take". P Diddy should have never touched that song. I've also listened to some Eminem but I can't seem to enjoy it that much. I think his best song was "Stan".
     
    I watched and rewatched the videos posted in this topic.. So far I really enjoyed the Hair Metal videos the best. Rob Zombie seems a bit too harsh for me but not as bad as Nirvana. I've owned an Alice in Chains and Stone Temple Pilot cds in my past and those are still good to me. Bloodhound Gang has some funny songs and I own one of their cds, but they don't interest me that much now.. Pantera has a couple good songs like Dragonforce, but some of their other songs are too harsh or I can't make out what they're saying. I think I'll try a few more of their songs tho. I liked that "Aint no rest for the wicked" song. I like the Vikings theme probably because I associate it with the show. System of a Down seemed a bit to broken up with political moments in the videos, but some of the lyrics and beats were good.
     
    That Remind me video reminded me of Habbo and Portal because of how the characters and buildings are presented.. other than that I didn't like any of those songs Pchan. I think the main reason is because most of them had a repeating beat that gets stuck in my head. Once a beat becomes the most noticeable aspect of a song instead of lyrics or tempo changes, it starts to drive me nuts.
     
    Thanks again everyone for helping me narrow down some of the songs that I now enjoy. Next, I'll try listening to some top hits of the 2000s+ and trying some more rock and hair bands. Maybe some Metallica and some older Godsmack. I remember I liked Godsmack's first CD, maybe they had a few more that were good that I missed.

    I don't think Carol killed Karen and David I think Lizzy did. It happens right after she couldn't stab her fathers corpse so she took her frustration out on helpless people. What Carol did was cover for her. She took the blame, accepted being booted and wanted to go back for the girls but Rick said no. She stuck close by anyway because she knows Lizzy aint right. Go back and watch Carol in those episodes and you'll see it. She is really struggling with something (spilling the water) snaps at Lizzy when she calls her mom. When Rick tells Daryl he is pissed and says "That aint her" in regard to the killings. Daryl does not believe she did it and Tyreese finding the cut up animal confirms it for him.
    I think Rick will see Carol with Judith and not say anything to Tyreese and then Carol will have to tell Rick the truth about Lizzy. Shes going to have to confide in him or Daryl because she can't do this solo, the kid needs to be dealt with one way or another. I'm thinking Carol will shoot her ala Of Mice and Men. She couldn't do it for Sophia, Rick had to do it. I think this time she'll step up. She probably feels some responsibility for teaching the kids how to use knives. She did it to protect them before she knew there was a psycho amongst them.

    Beth annoyed me. I understand be on a mission, but a mission for booze instead of trying to find the others like she wanted to so frickin bad last time we saw her? Knowing what booze did to Hershel? The only bottle she shoulda been looking for is in Judith's bag.  Everything just went to shit and her coping mechanism is a drinking game with hardcore booze for a first time drinker that didn't make her spew.... right. The episode is much slower then if it had been Daryl and Michonne or Carol or pretty much anyone but Beth.
    wtf happened here anyway, they were right motherfucking behind Carol and Tyreese. They coulda should gottta catch up to them. I'm interested to see how it will play out when Rick/Daryl see Carol w Tyreese. Will Carol give Lizzy up as the stabber cuz she HAD to have seen her smothering Judith. She's going to have to deal with that kid.

    Hey Abraham, stop taking orders from a dick. Follow Glen. I'm guessing he's long time military because he appears to seek out the top of the known hierarchy to get his orders from. He didn't want to lose the civi's either. Protect and preserve human life. Looking forward to getting to know these newbs
     
    Rick...running around upstairs...giving me twelve heart attacks. Him and that dude eye fuckin each other as the guy was getting choked out. That was some good suspenseful shit. So glad he got to Michonne and Carl and they gtfo. Are these guys the group thats going around beheading people or are these guys the group the head hunters are after? I'm not asking! I wanna know when they tell me but its so much fun to ponder. Mwahahaha 
     
    Carl is so crushed over Judith. Michonne loved her too. Talking with Carl about her child was grief therapy for both of them and it brought them closer together. I don't think she is his mom's replacement, more like the cool aunt, but they are really becoming family. I can't wait for them to see Judith alive. I'll cry and it will be so worth it
     
    Glen will find Maggie.

    I do want to read it!!!!!  but I've been forcing myself to stay away until the show is a little further along so I can read the stuff slowly so it doesn't catch up to the show. I want to be able to enjoy both tellings of the story without my "the book was better!" getting in the way lol.
    When visual media is done right you can extrapolate volumes of information in one conversation. Body language, tone, setting etc. Art by its very nature is open to interpretation. I like that they have deliberately done things different between tv show and graphic novel. When a Stephen King book gets movied up he usually screws w the ending somehow so it is different then the written piece. When you switch mediums with a story the delivery of some things has to change. You can't read a chapter of back story, you have to do a flashback or have the characters talk about it to deliver that information to the audience. Story format and script format are miles apart. The point is telling a good story worthy of being shared and retold indefinitely.  
     
    BSG pulled off the whole post apocalypse story brilliantly in mutherfuckin space. They changed some things from the original, the big one was making Starbuck a woman. It worked amazing. There was great balance in the show; Bill commanded the military, Laura the citizens. Guias is pushed to greatness by  Caprica 6.Lee outranks Kara but she runs those pilots and he leaves to go into politics.Character growth and relationships on the show was unlike anything I'd ever seen on tv. Series ended well, we got closure and cried a lot. As the show went on a bigger budget gave us awesome battle scenes. Bear McCreary did all the music for BSG and is also doing TWD, SHIELD etc.
