Farewell, Rick Grimes. I’m Sure You’ll Be Back

Farewell, Rick Grimes. I’m Sure You’ll Be Back

Tonight we say goodbye to Andrew Lincoln in his iconic role as Rick Grimes on The Walking Dead. After 9 years, he’s decided to leave the show.. for now. His last episode left a lot of possibilities for a return, especially if the rating take a dump due to his departure

Science is a way to call the bluff of those who only pretend to knowledge… It can tell us when we’re being lied to. It provides a mid-course correction to our mistakes.

Comic Book Pull List: October 31st

Comic Book Pull List: October 31st

I’m quickly becoming a big fan of Matthew Rosenberg’s writing. Although I wasn’t that keen on the whole Phoenix Resurrection thing, his current series, The Punisher and Multiple Man have been awesome. The latter came to a nice conclusion this week with Multiple Man #5. We got a nice (if not quick) wrap up to the whole timey-wimey, alternate reality shenanigans of former X-Factor detective Jamie Madrox. And the way it ended, it looks like the character is permanently back from the dead and ready to join one of the upcoming X-Teams and the mutant reboot.

In other issues, this was a big event week, especially for Marvel. X-Men’s Extermination, The Avenger’s Infinity Wars and Spider-man’s Spider-Geddon were all in full swing. All had solid issues, but nothing that stood out. The first trade of Greg Pak’s Weapon H seems to be an unexpectedly good read. I dismissed it in issues since its inception, but after hearing solid reviews about it, I decided to grab the trade of the first 6 issues. When they first introduced the Wolverine/Hulk hybrid all I could do was role my eyes and groan. But I have to admit, they’re doing some good stuff with a character that should be garbage. Bravo, Mr. Pak. I’m collecting Chelsea Cain’s Maneaters in issues to support the creators. But I’ll read it when it gets to 6 issues.

How would your life be different if... You stopped allowing other people to dilute or poison your day with their words or opinions? Let today be the day... You stand strong in the truth of your beauty and journey through your day without attachment to the validation of others.

The CW’s New ‘Open to All’ Campaign Feels Like One Part Commitment to Inclusiveness, and a Stand Against the Current Political Climate

Even though some extremists consider it pandering to their viewership, The CW’s awesome ‘OPEN TO ALL’ campaign feels like the young adult station taking a stand against the rhetoric being spewed by the current Presidential administration, I hope others follow suit. The only way to combat right-wing propaganda is with direct, concise information on where you stand and who you stand Wirth. Brave CW.

Despite All The Negative Press, I’m Still Loving The Walking Dead

Despite All The Negative Press, I’m Still Loving The Walking Dead

Still one of the best shows on TV. I agree the past two season with the Negan War have been way to long, but with the Whisperers, The Commonwealth, and the exit of both Maggie and Rick, we might get a new direction and a better focus in the near future.

Quote of The Moment: Octavia E. Butler

You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence.

After Almost Finishing the Trilogy of Books, I’m Pretty Stoked About The TV Adaptation of Justin Cronin’s The Passage

After six months of audiobooks, I’m finally reaching the third book in The Passage trilogy, The City of Mirrors. Judging by the current solicitations and teaser/trailers, it looks like the show with exist mainly in the first third of the first book. Most of the trilogy deals with the time after the vampire outbreak. Gotta wait until January to see what FOX does.

I Don’t Know About Chris Chibnall’s Vision for Doctor Who

I Don’t Know About Chris Chibnall’s Vision for Doctor Who

I don’t know for sure, but Doctor Who seems to be in trouble. I can’t put my finger on it, but there’s something about this new direction by show runner Chris Chibnall that seems to be falling flat. To be clear, Jodie Whittaker’s roll as the Doctor has been the bet thing about Who since David Tennant. But it seems like there isn’t much for her to work with right now. Granted it’s only a few episodes in, but if this week’s episode, Arachnids in The UK doesn’t connect with the audience, the show could be in jeopardy.

My biggest fear is this will give credence to trolls that casting a woman in the lead role would kill the show. The problems with Doctor Who have nothing to do with the actors. The Doctor and her three companions seem to work very well together, and any negative backlash should come nowhere near Jodie Whittaker. I’m hoping that as we near mid-seasons, Chibnall’s got some exciting stuff waiting in the wings.
