Thanks!

I had to drop cable...couldn't afford paying so much just for TWD and TD...so I'm well behind y'all.  I wish TD was on Netflix, for those of us playing catch-up!

Buy a ROKU Premier or more upscale version of the Premier,and get close to 1400 streaming channels. Netflix being one of them.

You might also consider buying a HD antenna.

https://www.amazon.com/RCA-Compact-Outdoor-Antenna-Range/dp/B0024R4B5C/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1488222207&sr=8-6&keywords=rca+hd+antenna

 I can't recommend this one highly enough. I like it so much I have bought 3 of them. One as a gift to a friend,one for my workshop,and one for the home. It is rated to receive stations at up to 50 miles away,and the closest station to me is 55 miles away. I pull in 39 channels with it,and don't pay a dime because they are all broadcast uhf or vhf channels.


If you want to record for later viewing and have TIVO while watching live tv,but a Channel Master. It comes with 1tb of storage for recorded shows,but has a plug in the back where you can plug in another one,or one that has even more memory. I personally like the removable hard drives because I can take them with me on the road to watch my recorded shows on my laptop.

I also have Direct TV streaming that came with a free Fire Stick that costs me $45 per month and I get over 100 channels with that,plus HBO and Showtime.

Yeah,if you get it all at one time the initial outlay is a little steep,but unless you also get the Direct TV Streaming service you don't have a monthly bill other than the one from Netflix. BTW,within a month or two Direct TV streaming services will be a channel on ROKU.

Eugene is starting to worry me.  Hard to imagine he's all of a sudden gotten sophisticated enough to pull off the sneaky covert dude...I'm kind of buying the he's flipped line.

Let's not forget that this same deception is how he survived in the early days with Abraham. He's smart but not highly educated or anything. Its all stuff he picked up from reading and watching TV.

I don't think so.  Remember his expression when the doctor was "cooked"?  He was horrified Negan would do that.  Now, remember he is super brilliant.  I think that moment set his mind working how he needed to "act" at the moment to stay alive and develop a plan to bring down Negan.  He may be the actual one who does that because he knows so much science/chemistry/physics.  My Bob, the earth scientist/physicist/chemist, knew exactly what Eugene was doing to create that blast. Bob also had a license to use dynamite in his quest for oil over the world, searching for traces of it under the ground in seismic exploration.  Eugene also has that knowledge, is going to make a move at some point to "right the wrongs" happening there.  He is a black and white thinker - this is right and that is wrong, no middle ground.  Don't dump Eugene yet - give him a chance to use his smarts to right that crazy existence.

@Cripplecreek

He named all the degrees he had, Ph.D.s in science, chemistry, etc., and told the companies he worked for (I think I remember that part).  So, he actually has done that stuff.

Question.   Do you need both the aerial antenna AND the channel master?  If not, which is better?

 Eugene confessed that it was all a lie so Abraham would protect him. Abraham literally wanted to kill him because of it. There is still some tension between Eugene and Rosalita over it.

Eugene's survival instinct has just kicked in (again).  He's just going along to get along.  But don't discount his abilities.  He may (yet) manage to be a valuable tool to use against Negan and his group.

Yes, you are right, I forgot his academic credentials were made up.  I think he still knows what he is doing - he has the knowledge but not the degrees.  I still think he is set on destroying Negan after seeing Negan burn the doctor.  He also knows Negan can turn on anyone at a moment's notice, so he has to make a plan so it won't happen.  Getting rid of Negan saves himself and the rest of them.

@CatherineofAragon

Sure you did, I will "hate" you forever (borrowing the "hate" word from some here).  :kisses2:
Bob even stayed in the room to watch, "Talking Dead" program.  He really wants to kill Negan all by himself.  When Negan shoved the doctor into the oven, Bob would have killed him right then.  He was truly shocked to see that happen.  He hasn't been watching for years (it is years isn't it?) like we have, only seen a few episodes, so the extreme cruelty happening in one second, shocks him still.

He has finally figured out this is not about the walkers, it's about the characters living in such a time and what they have to do to survive, including dealing with the walkers.   This program shows what happens to humans when there is an emergency and no law - humans will do anything to get what they need to survive.  Those with no spiritual belief, will kill in a heartbeat.

From the preview, looks like we will be back with Rick and crew next week.

Exactly.  The show is a "what to expect" if and when a real disaster ever occurs.  Other humans will become the biggest threat of all.  For anyone that's into the survival stuff, this show is a perfect example of what good people will be up against re: bad people.

Its gotten to the point where the zombies are more of a nuisance than a danger while the living are very dangerous.

The Dr. was talking to Dwight about this very thing in last night's episode...attempting to rationalize what happened to Dwight and Sheri.  Unfortunately for him, he didn't understand Dwight or how Dwight was impacted by the decisions they made in order to survive.

I think Dwight probably presents the greatest danger to Neegan at this point. He's a mess and ready to snap.

@sneakypete


We don't have the internet speed for streaming, or we would do something like that.  We're not deep in the country---we're only a couple of minutes from a state highway, and fifteen minutes from a medium-sized city, but we just don't have options.  There's one cable company to serve the area, but they don't have AMC, so that ain't happening.

Meanwhile, since Verizon bought out Directv, TWD pixels out constantly.

I'm thinking the same thing about Eugene.  He's so weak anyway, and after witnessing Glenn and Abraham get their heads beaten in, he's willing to do anything to feel safe.

Okay, so you and @Cripplecreek are on the same page regarding Eugene, then.  I won't dump him yet, because I've liked him too much, but I don't know...I have a bad feeling.  Hope the show proves me wrong.

Did you see him at the end, with that stuffed animal hanging out of his pocket?  Lol

Yep, the show is in its seventh year now.  I wish Bob could go through the screen and kill that SOB.  What he did to the doctor was, for me, even worse than the bat beatings.  Also, I'm sick of the smirking and the back bends.  Does he have a spine problem??
