I decided against watching the rest of Walking Dead. It was good except in one important respect: It wasn’t fun. Once the events of season two were settled, I didn’t really care what happened; not even about the zombie-slaver thing that rescues the sassy wench. I expect some Amazonian shenanigans ensued. If true, it’s so boring and so stupid.
Speaking of which: A while back I read a comment on Dalrock’s blog that I can’t now find. It cited a study which found that about 1 in 1,000 women are as physically strong as the average man. I’d take it as a kindness if someone could send me a link to the study/materials.
Still haven’t watched the last season of Justified. I was waiting so long for it to be on Amazon Prime, and now I can’t keep it in mind.
I saw Elysium last week, and generally liked it because I’m a sucker for SciFi that at least takes a running jump at earnestness. The overall plot of the elite moving to the ultimate gated community struck me as reasonable. The healthcare MacGuffin was a bit silly, though, because they didn’t explain why they had hospitals on Earth, but Insta-Heal machines in orbit. The write should have attached a horrible cost to them. Suppose every time the Insta-Heal is used, someone has to die to donate the raw materials, or it’s powered by super-expensive, super-delicate crystals. That would explain why only the rich have it. Otherwise they would shut down the hospitals on Earht, put a Insta-Heal Machine in strategic locations, and live in blissful, ignorant, and uninterrupted orbit away from the Latinos.
I’ve been reading some of Robert E. Howard’s Conan stories. Really entertaining.
Watched a brief series of Conan webisodes from the comic book publisher. They gutted the female character of the story to make it palatable for feminists. Really lame.
