Now on to my thoughts about this week's episode of FTWD ...

I adored this episode. I thought it was so fantastic and so well written. Everything that I hoped for was in it, well, save for one thing ...

I thought it really showed what would happen if the world started to break down. There would be some believers out there, like the teenager, but then others would be in denial. There would be a ton of misinformation out there and it would add to the chaos and ultimate disaster.

The only one that really didn't behave like a normal human being would was Madison. In order to protect your children, would you not tell them what was going on? It's not like her daughter, Alicia, is a toddler. She will be able to understand what has happened when her mother explains to her how the events unfolded. But to not tell her, puts her at risk. Maybe the writers are trying to say that she is in shock from killing the principal, but that is the part that I just don't understand. She has encountered the Walkers twice now, both times knowing that they must be killed. This time around, it should hit home more. She had to kill someone she knew intimately. It's not just her kid's friend. She looked into his eyes and had to do it herself. At that point, you tell your daughter.

You also don't wash the blood off when it is still not known how it is transmitted.

Get a new coat.

The husband, Travis, was still fantastic this week. He goes to get his son, but, now that I think about it, why doesn't he tell him what's going on to get him to come to him? Why let him be a petulant child at that point? Aren't there more important things going on? Also, when you ex-wife is arguing with you, tell her the truth. When she hangs up on the phone, you get to her house and you tell her what's going on. Why the secrecy? I get why the government might wait, but this is too much. Here's how simple it is "people are acting like they have rabies. They are eating people." Done. Then say, "now can we get our son here?"

The answer would be yes, a resounding, yes.

I do get why Travis, his son, and ex would hide out. They are thinking once the police get things calm, there will be a reprieve, and they will be able to flee.

The cool thing is yes, they thought they had more time. I like that. That's cool.

However, by the time they either have to flee this establishment, or there is a reprieve, more people will know what is going on and the panic and chaos that they could have beat will ensure. It's like concert traffic, they are too late at this point to beat the madness.

I also thought it was cool when the police officer was stockpiling water. That would for sure happen. Once you'd seen what he'd seen, and there is no larger government response? That would absolutely be plausible.

Now, at this point, I think the government would have (?) to tell people. Riots are breaking out because people do not know what is going on. I'm sure part of the problem is the government wants to try and keep mass chaos from happening. However, that is ALREADY happening, so time to inform. However, in defense, it seems like maybe the government in the show doesn't know what is going on. I'm not sure that is plausible either.

Plus, on the feasibility of the government, wouldn't they tell the police officers on the ground? I find it hard to believe that they wouldn't.

Well, I started this post stating that I really enjoyed this episode and then proceeded to tear it apart. I will stand by the statement that I did very much enjoy the episode. The only thing that was really glaring was the fact that the mother wouldn't tell the daughter what was going on.

I can't wait until next week!

Now, onto my blog about the new show - Fear The Walking Dead.

I really liked it! I thought that some people who wanted it to leap right into TWD arena are missing what could, and will, make this show so great, the character development, the slow burn, and the backstory.

It's kind of the opposite of TWD. We still barely know about the lives of some of the characters on TWD. In a way, that's telling for that show. It doesn't matter for them anymore who they were. The new reality is that they have to deal with.

Here, in FTWD, we get to start from scratch. We get to see the evolution. I think the concept is magnificent. We get to truly see how society would react to a breakdown. A massive breakdown.

One of my biggest pet-peeves in TWD is that the characters have not acted like people would in an apocalypse that far into development.

Here, on FTWD, we get a chance for the show to excel at showing that -- and I think they want to. Travis, the father figure, is a teacher. He was teaching his students about the laws of chaos and of nature. Therefore, that seems to be a focal point, a theme if you will, for the show. I would love to see this show more about the breakdown of relationships, the strengthening of some, the nature of who survives and who doesn't. That would be cooler than just making a second TWD. I think there are some fans out there who would want that, and that's cool, but this has the chance to be a true prequel. A true companion show, not just a spinoff.

So far Travis, the father, and Nick, the son of Madison, are by far the best. Nick is the standout. He is selling this role like nobody's business. Well done actor Frank Dillane, well done.

Kim Dickens has been a fave of mine for awhile, however, she's not doing it for me in the show, well, at least not yet.

She was fabulous in Lost, superb in Deadwood, and perfectly adequate in House of Cards. I'm just not seeing the emotion, the kindness, the intensity. She has glimmers, but it's not quite there yet. She doesn't seem to show tortured over her son very well. I get strong, but I have the sense she is trying to portray a reserved torture, it's just not coming across. She can ... she did it very well in Deadwood. I'm just gonna chalk it up to new character jitters.

The only caveat I have of the show so far is the emotion. The sudden fear. The slightly worried looks of what is going on in their community. I'm sorry, but at my work, if half of everyone was out for "the flu" that is all we would be talking about. That's not even with any zombie element (duh). I feel like the show is too far away from people talking about what is going on. Look at the recent Ebola scare in Africa. Everyone, even the government, was nonstop talking about it. A handful of people were being treated in America for Ebola and it was all over the news. In this show, a few states have had outbreaks and it's a little too ho-hum for me. It would be cooler if the show had a few more sideways glances. I few more, hey sweetie, wash your hands, there is a terrible flu going around. That would seem a bit more realistic to me.

Any-who, I'm super excited for next week to see if they improve upon some of the things I would like to see. However, unlike others, I would like to wait for more Walkers. If more Walkers come, then that means we've missed the opportunity to have something really special in this show.

Ho-hum. I'm in a bit of a drought right now for television shows. All the ones I really enjoy watching are still on hiatus.

I'm also bumming because football season hasn't started yet.

I'm missing my television!

I get that I could binge watch a ton of random shows, but I really don't watch television just for television's sake.

No GoT, no The Walking Dead, no Better Call Saul ...

Hmm. I wonder when some of these shows are going to start up again. I know AMC likes to rotate. I think their new show, Fear the Walking Dead starts before TWD.

Let me look it up.

Sweet. August 23rd starts the prequel show. I'm actually excited for this. I heard that they, the show runners, are not going to "cross the streams" of the two shows. I think that is smart.

I also love the actors in the new show, so it will be exciting to see what they can do with it.

I guess I really only have to make it one more week before I can give my thoughts on the new show!

This True Detective season 2 finale is brought to you by my 4inkjets coupon SIGLER14. You can get 10% off your inkjets with this promotion. Don't pay full price for your inkjets, let a great company like 4inkjets take away the sting of replacement cartridges.

So, essentially I was hoping the 90-minute finale was going to make the whole show worthwhile.

Sadly, that was not the case.

If you have already read recaps, this isn't the place for that. It's just my thoughts.

Here are my thoughts.

I liked Vince's line about relationships. That's why Colin helps him in the end.

I liked that the finale showed that every character had a good and bad side. It tried to explore the statement from the previous episode ... what makes a bad man?

Vince getting killed by the Mexican gang? I kind of liked the theme it was going for there, not that it was executed well. Choices have consequences, ones you might not see. The big bad? It might be something else.

Wrongful deaths again this week. Vince ...give up your stupid jacket.

Colin, you know what would be better than seeing your son "one last time"? Calling him on the phone for the next 18 years. That would be better. How stupid to go see his son.

After being told by the police chief that he didn't know Colin was so competent, Colin essentially proved him right. Colin was incompetent enough to not at least try to ditch the car. To at least try harder to get the tracking device off. So dumb.

Hey, Colin, fyi, you just killed 2 out of 5 bad guys. Keep trying. Don't give yourself up.

Mexican gang, nice job finding Vince. How was that again? He burns all of his cars and is escaping. How does that happen.

Mexican gang, great job ambushing Vince. Didn't we all see Vince looking out his car mirrors wondering what was going on? He didn't see ANYONE get out of the cars so that he had time to get a gun and at least try to get out of there?

Stupid. The whole thing was just stupid.

Let's see what happens with season 3.

Great job Colin and Rachael. Not your faults. Vince? Kinda not your fault either. They gave by far the least trained dramatic actor the hardest and corniest lines to say. Sorry, dude.

All I have to say about this week's episode is ... duh.

I've been saying this for weeks. It doesn't matter that absolute intricate details about who screwed over who. I had to read at least 4 other blogger's post to figure out what all the character's names were.

That should never happen in a story. When the guy met Taylor in the LA subway tunnels, I was like who? Who is that again? Is he Colin's boss, Rachael's boss, Taylor's boss? I honestly couldn't remember. I also was guessing he was a boss, I couldn't quite remember that either.

Also, honestly, really? You KNEW you were going into a trap, but you'd rather die than have people find out your gay? Jeez.

AND, you just totally our maneuvered your fellow black-ops soldier buddies, only to stupidly take one glance when you leave the subway and be like, oh, it's cool ...

No, no it wasn't. That was bad writing top to bottom. Someone with that type of skills does not go out like that. That other dude was like the tunnels go on for miles ... I know! Leave through a different route. FFS.

Rachael and Colin stare at each other for, well, forever, and then start to make out.

I don't care.

Vince baby finally had a good week. I KNEW he could be a badass. I've officially decided it's not Vince's fault his acting is so bad. Someone is directing him that way. Someone has been giving him the worst dialogue. When they finally let vince break bad, he does, and it's excellent.

However, from a storyline point of view ... again ... who cares? Vince knew Blake was against him. Vince knew it probably had to do with the shady Russian dude. The only tell here was that they not only took his Casper deal, but his fall back on the casinos as well. The only, ONLY cool thing at this point would be a better why than just greed.

Honestly, we've known this all along, throwing in that the Russian decided to take the casinos too does not impress me.

The stupidest, absolute worst line this week was from hippie papa bear to Rachael -- you are the most innocent person I know.

F'ing stop already. That was the worst, worst, worst line I have ever heard.

Another complaint. How does Colin know "they" used his gun to kill the lady? Why would you make that leap when these people have been clueless the entire time?

The show opened with someone driving Casper's body to a park bench so the police could find him. Let's finally solve who did that -- the only reason to watch this terrible, terrible show.

Recap that we know: some police dudes broke into a pawn shop and stole those blue diamonds. I'm pretty sure they gave them to their boss, and somehow the mayor. I'm totally and complete unclear as to how Casper is involved in that. We know the two kids lived and they are probably seeking revenge. We somehow miraculously find the daughter working as Casper's assistant. I'm assuming the kids killed Casper and set him out for the cops to find so that they would know that they were, what? Coming for them? I don't know.

Also, where are the diamonds? Did the kids steal them back? Who knows?

90 minutes next week to make this season worth my time.

Now, onto my thoughts about the latest episode of True Detective.

All I can say is that there are only two episodes left. Thank goodness.

I really just want them to wrap this up already.

The thing is, perhaps we don't have a name specifically, but there is no mystery, and anything else that they throw at us will just be contrived magic shit to pretend that there is more to the story than corporate greed and mobsters trying to get in on the action.

That's the thing. We don't care enough about the people involved to care about the story as a whole.

There's too many subplots with not enough meat on any of them to care.

Rachael goes to a party tonight for what purpose? The boys follow her for what purpose? To see what goes on at these parties ... sure. But then they find contracts with signatures all over them? Of course there are signatures, they are contracts. Also, everyone involved knows it is over the land for the rail. Everyone knows there was a conspiracy to cause the land to be toxic so that the rich could buy them for cheap and that the people who pay are the lower socioeconomic people. That no one lives there and that rich people are chewing up the land and spitting it out.

There is no mystery.

The show could be good if it showed how it impacted people's lives, but, again, not enough character development.

This is the Seinfeld of mysteries. The show is about nothing. It is making a mountain story out of a molehill story.

Then the big knife thing is that Rachael stabs someone? In that drab fashion? Ugh. Wasted. So wasted.

Again, the only, only bright spot is Colin, story wise and acting. Him giving up his son so that his son will never know that he is the product of rape is the only person acting unselfishly. Unlike other bloggers, I don't think it was just to retain his right to the name father. He did a fatherly thing by giving up his son to protect his son. Even the saint of a mother would rather tell her son that he is the product of rape, cause him to have to live with that, so that she can win a custody battle. Who is the disgusting parent now?

Then there is Vince. Ugh. Someone shoot him out of his misery. Him not believing someone killed the girl was too much. Just stop already. Vince's acting at the table and throughout this episode was some of the worst. However, like all episodes of True Detective this season, it has moments of, dare I say, good ... I can't even finish that sentence. Is it like when you line up 10 guys and you pick the hottest one out of them, but if you put that same guy with a bunch of actual hot guys no one would pick him? I think so. Was the scene with Vince and the boy really that good or just the best scene we've seen with him in awhile so we are just calling it good? I think the latter. I did like it though. Anyone who is older knows that what he speaks is the truth. We can all look back on our lives and pick out the moments that changed our lives forever. The longer you live, the more of them you have. Some of us have more profound ones than others.

I agree with other bloggers, I'm not hate watching right now, but I am mystified watching. I'm only watching, not because I'm interested in the show, but more so to see what in God's name did they see this series culminating toward? What did the writers think was a big mystery? Are they going to just magically contrive some much bigger plot? Are they going to resolve what happened to soldier boy int he field to get the burns? His sexuality? Does Colin, or Rachael for that matter, get any peace?

I wait to see ...

Until next week.

Now, onto my recap of True Detective Episode 5 Other Lives.

So, we catch up with the story 3 months later. All the detectives or whatever their positions are have been reassigned or they have quit.

Colin has quit, but he is working for Vince. He quit because he realizes what went down with the shootout was a colossal cover up, shakedown and set up.

He'd finally had enough.

I read something somewhere about the reason why he shaved his moustache. The reason is he is removing his mask. I don't know about that.

Rachael is doing evidence and TK is a detective now, he actually got a promotion, but all are miserable.

Somehow, they have all been asked to now secretly try and figure out why there are blue diamonds. I'm not sure what this lady wants now or why she got involved. I think somehow she too got screwed on the shootout deal, but this was totally unclear. I think they mentioned about the new governor or something or some kind of politician, but, again, totally unclear.

If I had to sum up this season I would say the keyword would be unclear. It's unclear why I should care, it's unclear if there really is more to this plot that requires 8 episodes or if it goes beyond a corrupt politician who got killed due to either his kinky sex life, his train deals, or both. Can't we just say both and end it all there? Does it really drive the plot anywhere more that it will be involved with Rachael's dad? I don't care. Do I care if the plastic surgeon is more involved than he says he is? No. This show is running on the false assumption that we care about any of these people. That's it's downfall. It's so proud of itself that it forgot to make us care. I can tell you, the only reason people are watching anymore is to be (hopefully) proven wrong this this is absolutely a waste of a series.

Anyway, I digress.

The only thing that was remotely interesting was that Colin finally figured out that he has been duped this whole time by Vince. Duh. Every viewer knew that from episode one. Colin did well with the acting here and proved once again he is the only bright light in this dreadful series. I give Rachael a pass here because she really isn't given any good material. Her now smoking real cigarettes is just actually an insult to the viewer. It's so in your face it's annoying.

The acting by Colin was good because it portrayed the emotion that would come with realizing that your whole life is a lie. He already significantly struggled over the fact that he killed a man because he raped his wife. That killing of a man changed his life to the point he lost his wife, his child, his honor -- everything. The fact that he thought he was being "a man" by avenging his wife, that ultimately led to the removal of all that he held dear ... all for a lie? To be duped? Ugh. That would be soul crushing. At least before he could hold onto the fact hat he "manned up" and did right by his wife, all the terribleness that came with it, but that was never the case.

Again, the theme of what it means to be a man, to be a woman.

Onto TK. All I have to say is it's your own damn fault. Who would hide money in their prostitute mother's trailer? That made zero, ZERO sense. Bad, bad, bad writing.

Well, 3 episodes left. I wonder how much more can they pretend to make out of this really boring plot. So stupid.

I'm going to go on record though that next season will be good. HBO will not stand for this. It will be hard to get good actors after this though. Also, I'm fine with them changing up the type of season from the occult, to a murder mystery. That's fine. Just make me care about the characters and care about the plot. Oh, and have a plot that couldn't have been wrapped up in two episodes.

Reluctantly, I will watch next week, but looking forward to writing my thoughts for you all.
