InterestsHow much you wanna make a bet I can throw a football over them mountains? Well, if coach woulda put me in fourth quarter, we’d have been state champions. No doubt. No doubt in my mind. You better believe things had been different. I’d have gone pro in a heartbeat. I’d be making millions of dollars and living in a big ol’ mansion somewhere, soaking it up in a hot tub with my soul mate.
The 2nd show was good tv, I just wished for a little bit more action. They are doing a good job building the characters and trying to hold off total anarchy as long as possible. My wife has been watching this with me (she doesn't watch WD). I keep asking her "what if" questions as crazy things start happening. You can't really ask those questions in Ricks world because it's so far gone. There were a couple of head scratchers for me in this episode though. 1) The HS student Tavarius is way to mature and knowledgeable about the future. It was also cliche that he happend to run into at the school. 2) when they are at the house at night and the daughter is pointing a flashlight outside at the neighbor getting attacked, why didn't the woman take the flashlight away and secure the house better? She seemed to not be too concerned about the safety of her house. Wouldn't you be packing and at least carrying weapons? Great show, I am pumped for the next show which is two weeks away! Also, Sling TV didn't crap out on me, which is a positive. Did you know you can stream AMC shows on SlingTv?
Yes the music score was better, the pacing was not what I expected. I'm glad they didn't go gore-fest and are focused on character development. I can't wait however for when poo hits the fan. LA is going to go nuts!
Well, tonight's the night! FTWD makes it debut. I am not sure how long the episode is slated to run, but I am sure the runtime and commercial time will be 50/50!! In all seriousness, the trailers look badass. They seem to be taking a more action based/zombie fighting feel vs. TWD's typical slow character development. My guess is if you have been longing for zombies zombies zombies....for that gore fest, then this will be the show for you! Here is a look at the first 3 mins...
Can we fire David Newton? Technically the answer is yes, but the Huddle must first establish a quorum of at least 51% of the huddle. Someone must present the amendment to the Huddle board (Jeremy, Kurb, Jase, Scrum, Monsta, Panthro). The board will deliberate on it and create a special, emergency election. Once the election is complete, we will have PhillyB draft an official statement. Then we will send Johnny Rockets down to the Mouse House in FL, to punch David Newton in the nuts. Then SCP will poop on him. Then we the Huddle will read through all the nonsense details in the 11 conspiracy theory threads that PanthersUnited makes.
I would consider myself a professional cord cutter. Here are my thoughts.. On just about everything you said, you are on track. Dont spend extra money getting a smart TV. STs are very limited and their platforms are terrible. Instead get a Roku 3(more in that later). You need to buy a attic mount amplified antenna. Don't go cheap here, I bought AmazonBasics Amplified Indoor/Outdoor HDTV Antenna - 60 Mile Range https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MFXNQBU/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_b470vb68KN0P0
In regards to DVR, don't pay monthly fees for TiVo. you need to buy this... Channel Master DVR+ Bundle - subscription free digital video recorder with web features and channel guide (CM7500BDL3) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00J05QJPG/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_XW70vbR1741P1
I own Roku 3, Apple TV, chrome cast. That's ever major streamer besides Amazons. I can tell you Roku is the best, it's not even close. It has a great interface and it streams the most content out of the options. You can buy a refurbished one from Amazon.
My my set up has a Roku at every TV for streaming, my whole house gets about 60 HD channels from my over the air antenna. I have 60 Mbps from Comcast. I mainly use sling TV, Netflix, and HBO Now. While I can't watch everything I want, after a year of not paying for cable I really don't care. I am saving $100 a month (minus the upfront equipment costs). Only thing I can't see is Panther games, but the NFL is going to release a stand alone streaming service within a couple years anyway. I also was t able to stream the Pac/Man fight on PPV, but again that will change soon I am sure! Let me know if you have any specific questions. Also, don't forget if you buy all that stuff from Amazon, use those purchases to go towards free All-Pro!
