I think the writers are missing points where they could take the story to more of an interesting plane. In the previous episode, if they hadn't so overplayed the "great American hero" going to rescue the people (really unbelievably so) and instead had left it on a sad "realistic" note, that they couldn't really help everyone, it would have been interesting.
.
A similar thought could have happened here, where instead of having all of the crew who wanted to leave, re up, maybe still have a handful of them want to leave.
.
I agree with chadmurphy2571 , it was slow, but it kept me interested. They definitely need to get back to some action though, even if it isn't physical. Maybe get the Russians back in and have some more cerebral combat between the captains.biggrin

Awesome opening scene! Did not see that coming. I still like the Reverend, he made this episode for me. "I say f$%# too." lmao.
.
Liv Tyler is the next one that needs to get that opening scene done.huffyhuffylol
.
A really good episode. I was hooked throughout wondering what was coming next.

I'm in the middle of watching the UFC Dublin broadcast...I'm only 20mins in, but it's becoming clear to me they really should've named this event UFC Conor McGregor image

I *Conor McGregor* think *Conor McGregor* Conor McGregor *Conor McGregor* should *Conor McGregor* be *Conor McGregor* heavyweight *Conor McGregor* champion *Conor McGregor* of *Conor McGregor* the *Conor McGregor* world, *Conor McGregor* even *Conor McGregor* if *Conor McGregor* that *Conor McGregor* isn't *Conor McGregor* his *Conor McGregor* weight *Conor McGregor* class.lollol

Seriously, that was one of the best events I have seen. The fights were great and the crowd was uber awesome! I am proud to be a wannabe Irish bandwagon jumper. titter As a Canuck I love the Canadian crowds, but I have to admit that Irish crowd was one of the best if not the best I have heard for a UFC event!
.
I am currently watching Brown vs Lawler but I wanted to give my two cents on
Some big news unfolding in recent days
.
- Gus injured and out of fight against Jon Jones. DC brought in to replace him. I expect plenty of trash talk from DC leading up to that fight
- Belfort granted license to fight by NSAC. Looks like Weidman/Belfort will go ahead. Not sure how I feel about that as I'm not a big fan of either

Last one first, I hadn't heard about the Belfort thing, but I have been on the Belfort bandwagon since he came back so I want him to do well even off the TRT.
.
As for Cormier/Jones, it's a fight I would like to see, but I really really wanted it to happen after Gus/Jones because I think Cormier is going to destroy Jones. Cormier is a big guy who really should be fighting at the heavyweight level, and the way he threw around Henderson, I don't see much Jones can do against him unless he stays away and tries to use his reach and sharp elbows. I think it will be a decent fight, though I definitely see Cormier punishing Jones.
.
I feel bad for Gus as I was in the camp that thought he beat Jones. He really hasn't had a good break since then. I guess he would get his shot against Cormier afterwards, but it doesn't have the same ring to it.
.
Any word on Silva and when he is due back? I wonder who his first opponent would be.

If I ever get to the point where I could drop $200+ for software and not think about it, I probably wouldn't torrent anymore. I think I will still keep coming to KAT because the community is one of the better ones I have ever been involved in, but where I am it is illegal to "pirate" and whether I agree with the law or not, I would rather not be on the wrong side of it as much as I can avoid. :)

You didn´t think that episode 4 was about 1 character?
Practically the entire episode was about the Police Chief.
Even the scenes of the step son & daughter were tied in to his previous comments/actions as was the scene at the end.
I would agree that the story wasn´t as entertaining as the previous episode, but I think it was focused.

I know this question wasn't posed to me, but I hope you don't mind if I put my two cents in. If you do, just let me know and I shall delete it.
.
I agree it was much more focused than the first episode in which we got a ton of characters to try and absorb, but even though they tried to tie that whole baby Jesus thing involving his daughter back to the Police Chief, I still think it was too much about her and her attitude than it was about him.
.
And the entire piece about Tommy and the Asian girl really did nothing for progression of the police chief or I think even for the Holy Wayne storyline. I mean it may have been for a little action, and the requisite penis/bum shot (thank you for that HBO. :P lol), but I didn't think it quite fit in.
.
Please don't get me wrong, I don't think EVERY episode should focus solely on one character and one character only. Actually, from a story telling point, this episode didn't bother me as much. My own humble impression is that the third episode, with the Reverend, caught my attention the most and made me engrossed and that is the measuring stick I am using with all other episodes to date. So I am with GratefulDawg7565 in that aspect that I WANT to know about the characters and I liked the episode where they focused on one. :)

Sat through the first 4 and just cannot get into it. Pulled it off my schedule.

I am with you on this one. I am trying to get into it, because I really do like the idea, and I really enjoyed the third episode, but if they aren't going to tell you what happened to the 2% who disappeared....then it hold no draw for me.
.
It's like me watching MGardens10121 life after the "rapture". Is he going to join a crazy cult, is he going to start smoking and stop talking, is he going to start shooting dogs? Really, however you deal with your loss, however important it may be to you, is not entertaining for me.
.
What is keeping me hoping is to find out the origins of the different groups, the chain smoking self mutes, Holy Wayne and his "baby". With the third episode, I like how they gave you some of the background of the Reverend, but that leads to the question, after they give you the history of each of the groups, what then? Especially if they aren't going to tell you what happened, then you know that those people searching for an answer will never get it.
.
I mentioned once before it's like an irritant to watch. I want to stop, but I want to know. Maybe I will just cut the cord and let it go. A few more episodes and we'll see.
.
I know TheLemur6948 has links to the Last Ship and Extant. Are you watching them too?

Episode 4....back to macro. As much as I want to like the show, it's not really working with me. I am intrigued with certain aspects, the people in white definitely especially after this episode. I don't think I really give two hoots about Holy Wayne, but to be fair they haven't really delved into that storyline yet. I am hating the police chief's daughter more and more.
.
I have a couple of questions, but considering this is only Monday I don't want to spoil the episode for others. Suffice it to say, I am still curious enough to watch another episode or two.

Episode 5, the worst episode so far. :( So cliched, so over the top. Gag. They need to get back to furthering the story, or deepening the characters. This episode was definitely a throw away.

I am looking for A Chess Omnibus by Edward Winter. Published June 1st 2003 by Russell Enterprises ISBN-10: 1888690178, please. I don't think it has an e-book format, but I know you guys do amazing things and find things that don't exist. ;)
.
Let me thank you in advance for trying guys! (btw, I have googled it, and only Amazon seems to be selling it and for much more than I can afford, which is why I chose to ask here :))
.
EDIT: I had forgotten my "pleases" and "thank yous". I said them in my head, they just didn't get to my fingers. :D

Just watched The Divide. It's a show about an almost lawyer who works with the Innocence Project. The Innocence Project takes on cases of wrongly convicted people and tries to get them justice. Not a new idea, I know, but after watching the first episode (which is actually the first two), I was hooked.
.
I would love to tell you it was because of the great storyline, or the great acting, production value or whatnot, but while all were good, none of it was exceptional. Yet, I am intrigued. I want to find out more about the main characters, I want to find out where the story goes from here, I want to see what surprises the writers come up with.
.
It's hard to talk about it without spoiling anything, so just suffice it to say that it is worth a look. It has its drama, suspense, intrigue, action but without being overly done or playing on some uber psuedo sophisticated level.
.
It's also on the WE (women's entertainment) network, which is usually strike one for me, but while the main lead is a female, she doesn't appear to be either a) a man hating, super strong to the point of being invincible super genius or b) a weepy crier over-emotional mess. She appears to be a normal human being, with feelings and emotions, strengths and weakness that I, as a male, can relate to "normal" women I know.
.
Definitely a bookmarked show for me and I excitedly look forward to the next episode.
