Wow! Where do i start? SPOILERS for various genre shows and movies below...
First off, I’m not on Kinja much anymore. I think I’m now on a 6 month Kinja rotation, as real life is much more interesting these days that the web, for me at least.
1) Z Nation finale was bonkers, as I knew it would be. Citizen Z is almost a popsicle! Murphy gets to the ‘lab’ only to find it ain’t what they thought it would be (and we get more info about this supposed Zona place)! 10k got shot! Bad guy who killed Vasquez’s wife and kid is alive and looking for redemption! Gina Gershon is bash** crazy as Mexican crime ‘queen’ La Reina! Murphy finally caught up to the doc who experimented on him, and now controls them via the ‘bite’ thing he does. 10k might be dead in an explosion. Warren and Addy still continue to be the best characters on the show, with Doc and Murphy coming in second, 10k third, Vasquez 4th. Also, the 2nd-to-last episode was a great origins flashback to where everyone was when the zombie apocalypse broke out. I kind of knew about 10k and Warren, sort of knew about Citizen Z’s origin, but Addy and Mack’s meeting was fun, and Doc’s was a huge surprise. Additionally, Vasquez’s flashback was heartbreaking, albeit slightly over-acted by Matt Cedeño. Going back further into the season, I miss Cassandra, although I commend the show for not pulling punches when it comes to the ‘anybody can go at any time” motif. Lastly, Baby Murphyette is growing up fast, but her ‘foster’ zombie parents are starting to look a bit worse for wear. WOuld Cassandra have wound up this way? Will the sub captain and the prison doc as well? We saw all the Mexican drug cartel members in various accelerated decay, but that could be due to the serum they were injected with.
2) Star Wars Rebels has gotten a lot better, especially with the original Clone troopers from Anakin and Ahsoka’s unit, and of course Ahsoka herself now on the scene.
3) STAR WARS! The Force has truly awoken! That was one hell of a fun film, despite the loss of you-know-who. I still want to find a freeze frame of BB-8’s thumbs-up moment with Finn.
4) Deadpool trailer: definitely NSFW, but definitely awesome:
