I thought Shane had a better idea than Rick in some cases. He was harsh, intolerable and looked out for his own with no regard for trouble or a threat to his group.
Shame he was overly consumed with Lori.

The thought of Shane vs Negan is interesting! And I bet he wouldn't have negotiated with the trash people, or Alexandria.

Do you think The Whisperers will appear on TV?

Yeah, I think Rick is just getting to the mindset Shane was at in Season 2, only without the insanity.

Had Shane beat Rick, I don't think he would have got by the Governor, but if he got this season, I agree he wouldn't have negotiated with anyone, Kingdom included.

Vs Negan, I think he would have ended up either in Abrahams place because Negan saw him as a threat, or siding with Negan. Negan would have loved Shane.

I haven't read the books, so I don't know who they are. That said, I hope they do haha

Anyone watching the new "Outlander"?

I love this show. Brings out the Scottish heritage in me.

Also like Riverdale and the new Dynasty. Guilty pleasures.

Normal?

I'm sure you mean demented. Or simply middle class folk without Netflix

Any Clive Barker fans will be stoked to hear he's making a "Nightbreed" tv show. :thumbsup

Just watched the latest episode of Outlander. How did pirates know they just needed to turn up on a remote island and grab Ian and the treasure, while Jamie and Clair are on the mainland shore? Why did Ian have to to swim to the island. Why didn't they just get a boat?!

It is now rare that I can watch a drama on FTA, but The Good Doctor has been good... the episodes I've seen.

It is like the good old days of network TV.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

It is a network TV show... so it’s a bit glossy and commercial... but it is also off beat. Based on a Korean TV series.

On Rotten Tomatoes the critics rating is 55 per cent. Audience rating is 88 per cent.

Stranger things is pretty strange. I love the 80s theme though.

Finished Longmire, waiting for The Punisher on Netflix
