That secondary character got Abraham's death scene. You have no idea how much the LGBTQIA (I have to be honest here, I know what LGBT stands for, no fucking idea what QIA is, why do these cunts have to keep adding letters to their name :? ) community got riled up about it.

Spolier alert for anyone who does not watch the walking dead of the 100, don't read this until you have caught up with the latest episodes...

http://www.themarysue.com/the-walking-d ... ic-as-far/

End of the day a lot of fat lesbian feminists bawled their hearts out on tumblr about it, so its a good thing. ;)


How full of shit are these ppl? I guess being a victim is a full time job these days.




*************** Spoilers for The 100 various seasons **********************



a.) This is the second time The 100 offs a "commander". It's the title of the overall chieftain of the postapocalyptic savages. The first was Anya, played by Dichen Lachman. Also a young female. As far as viewers know straight but otherwise the exact same character as Lexa. For me it stretches credulity that tribal societies twice in a row would choose a young female as their overlord. Especially in the presence of strong male contenders and scheming crones and elders backing them. The struggling show obviously suffers from a lack creativity and not homophobia. Why else resurrect a lesbian version of Anya?

b.) Clarke and Lexa going les came totally out of the blue especially since Clarke before had been involved in a heterosexual romance. This smacks of lipstick lesbianism (both are attractive and young) for the sake of a young, male and heterosexual audience. If I were a homosexual woman, I'd be annoyed by this trope and actually happy about Lexa biting the dust instead of Clarke's carpet.

Probably a good thing Beth never got a lesbian scene, those tits are a total disappointment...

So ppl do the tactically illogical thing and run off in onesies and twosies so shit can happen and the studio doesn't have to lay out the bucks for big siege scenes?

Talking of things, the Alexandria defense setup doesn't make any sense if you expect human attackers with firearms. Especially the guard post at the door protected by mesh wire and some fabric. First one to die. There'd have been enough time for Rick to change that.

As this show has moved from an apocalyptical horror show to a celebration of tribal warfare it should show us the logical tactics and plot. In tribal warfare there is e.g. a lot of ambushing going on.

First thing a chief in Negan's shoes would do is have snipers take pot shots at the Alexandria guards to thin out enemy fighters. Second thing is L-shaped ambushes along roads to prevent them from foraging.

First thing a tribal commander in Rick's shoes worth any salt would do is clear the area outside the wall and get the guards behind anti-sniper cover and concealment. Second is forming convoys for foraging. And combat patrols outside the wall to eliminate Savior snipers and recon. And of course decent firing positions and obstacles instead of a medieval "drop stones and push away ladders" setup atop a burr's wall.

It's not like both sides lack ppl with military training ... But the show gives us an ex soldier standing around atop an elevated railroad track running her mouth perfectly without cover ... at the site of a previous ambush. :roll:

Last thing ppl would do in such a situation is walking around outside alone. Sure, one character or two for specific reasons, if it's necessary for the plot. But ppl leaving in drones ignoring Rick who, once again, fails as a leader ... Human nature is to hunker down in safety and look for protection in a herd.

An all out tactical war with the Saviors would be cool. But instead we'll be subjected to interpersonal drama and murder.

The story arc they are moving into is called "all out war" in the comic, so I guess we will see that next season. Rumors on the interwebs are that they are going to end this season with a cliffhanger so we won't know who is on the end of Negan's bat, I will be pretty pissed off if they do that.

Not really sure how Carol managed to hide an ak-47 up her sleeve, or was she really a cyborg all this time? :?

There are at least twenty minutes of ads in each episode. It's Stupefying.

Audio of the last 10 minutes of the season finale has been leaked on youtube. I won't post a link because it does (I think) spoil who gets Lucilled, but I will tell you that it sounds fucking brutal.

S'pose you got a full auto weapon up the sleeve of your jacket: where do the brass and the heat go? :roll:

So how to describe the season 6 finale? It was like getting a blowjob for 60 minutes and then just as you are about to nut she punches you in the balls and walks away. Bravo amc, bravo.

Exactly. This was the lousiest and most forced cliffhanger ever. Same trick as in the ep before, btw. The situation furthermore was a slightly altered copy of the scene at Terminus. I'm outtie. My quota of badly written violence porn is overfulfilled.

What do you guys think about "Fear - TWD"?

E01S02 out now. I like that the show hasn't gone static location-wise like it's big brother. I still dislike the patchwork family drama. And the trope of the kids being stupid and getting the group in danger. One would think the end of the world and permament lethal danger sobers ppl perfectly and makes them grow up. :?:
