I think your last paragraph illustrates why this is such a matter of consternation for us older folks. At 21 my biggest problems were how do I get money and how do I get girls aside from any long term considerations. Guys like Zeke and Thomas have those things solved plus a good start on the long term considerations and basically all they have to do is be gracious and not stupid. 

I'll stop now or I'll go into a version of the Crash Davis bus rant.

That is also part of what justifies the exorbitant salaries. In a manner of speaking these people (celebrities of all sorts) "can't" go out in public. These guys make all this money because their lives are no longer normal. It is now in a manner of speaking Zeke's job not to get into the sorts of messes being reported here. 

Also Twitter needs to be nuked from orbit. Just to be sure.

I thought the alts for Wisconsin were the 2010 TTUN game alts... worn in 2011? (Brax with the hail mary for the win.)

The only alt really left out is 2016 Nebraska but the helmets made it. In both cases for this it leaves and odd number of entries.

I see. 

Well keep working on it. Knowing how to be forward with men but not seeming needy, clingy, desperate, generally crazy, or like a "woman of ill repute" is a skill and demonstration of feminine confidence that few women even understand exists. Learn it and you'll set yourself apart from the dozens of other women throwing themselves at him or other similar sorts of boys. Remember he'll be asking himself why he should date you (i.e. time, effort, and generally not treating you as a disposable whim) when other gals can be had with a bag of skittles.

So you're not actually looking for a prom date but something more on the lines of a fashion accessory? 

Comment 13 Mar 2017

I love all of Morgan's episodes because Morgan is most explicitly the character speaking to what I think the show is about, "What kind of a person will you be after the world ends?" Morgan also speaks to another interesting question. Not so much how do you make peace with others as how do you make peace with yourself. 

The irony in this episode was just delicious to me. At the end Morgan's "We get it." Loved that. Great episode. Lennie James is a terrific actor.

There isn't enough time to get all the groups in a single show and really tell any sort of story for each group or move the entire story forward in that manner. It would be very disjointed. It also wouldn't really feel like the pace of the show had increased as each particular subplot would cover less ground each week. 

Comment 01 Mar 2017

For you "unexciting" is the same as "uninteresting." Things that you find "unexciting" and thus I'm guessing "boring" in the episodes are still interesting to me. There are speeds of story telling other than full throttle. Slow down. Let the story breathe a bit.

You don't just go straight for seven.

Zeus isn't a myth. You'd better take care when speaking that blasphemy. Odin and The Flying Spaghetti Monster save you should Zeus catch wind of your treachery and become angry. It is only Zeus's divine benevolence that allows the co-opting of his image by the upstart. Heed my caution and make an offering to Fortuna that you and the upstart might keep the good fortune of avoiding Zeus's wrath. 

But come let us set aside these troubles and I will tell you the story of the 12th Son of Ohio who stemmed tides and slayed badgers and ducks and brought glory to his portion of a beautiful and wondrous continent. 

In all seriousness though. 

Comment 01 Mar 2017

Last season's finale cliffhanger brought the highest ratings ever to the show's season premiere. Not wrapping all of this up by the end of the season would not be suicide. 

Neegan is awesome. I love every minute the dude is on screen. This isn't an "experiment." Neegan is what the tyranny of evil men looks like. How do you think order is brought from chaos? 

I'm guessing there just aren't enough machetes to zombie heads for you? Go to the movies if you think this stuff is "slow." The movies these days don't bother with being about anything or taking their time and filling in the gaps. They just careen from action scene to action scene to action scene. The plot providing barely enough motivation for that and falling apart even under cursory examination. Mostly I guess they're action scenes since nothing is ever held in frame and there is a cut every .75 seconds. 

The only corner visible here is your lack of imagination. 

On the one hand everyone seems fed up with the old style of episodic television where everything is reset at the end of the episode and there aren't really any continuing threads yet I keep hearing about how Walking Dead doesn't wrap up every dangling thread by the end of the week. 

What's the longest you've gone without checking your phone? (While awake.)

CGI costs a lot of money so that limits the screen time. Mainly though the trouble with the tiger is that six hundred pounds of obligate carnivore needs to eat a lot of meat and it is the end of the world. How the heck are they feeding it? Less tiger, less asking of that very pertinent question.

That's why Daryl didn't tell her what Neegan did. He knew it would push her off the deep end and she'd become something worse than a person who kills to survive. She'd become a person who kills because they like it. I think that's the long term season arc. The contrast between Neegan and Carol/the group. Doing it because it is necessary and doing it because you want to. 

We see this with Richard from The Kingdom and his "Okay, you've made your point. Let it go." This sort of thing is also heart of Dwight's struggle. 

I don't get the whole "fix the show" thing as I think this season has really been terrific in the sense of what the show is really about, "What kind of person will you be when the world ends?" 

Comment 28 Feb 2017

Because every discussion is largely full of people complaining that stuff is drawn out.  Part of the point of TV I thought was that they could take time with things but whenever a show does there is a chorus of whining about how slow and drawn out it is. There isn't much point in arguing with "they need to figure out how to fix the show" when you don't think the show needs to be "fixed." If you want quick and to the point go to the movies.

Comment 28 Feb 2017

In my opinion the running game disappeared because the staff didn't have confidence that Weber could hold onto the ball against the bigger stronger D's at the end. The problem of course is they then didn't adequately adjust the play-calling to account for this. 

And someone still needs to explain to me given all I've read in these terrific film-study articles how Weber and Samuel were not on the field every play (quick breathers aside) all season. I guess the drops thing explains it a bit.
