Stunt Granny Lunch Conversation – #WWE ‘Future Endeavor Day’

th

Jeremy: So no more releases as of yet.

Kevin: I would have to think it’s ended now unless the rumor mill is true that no one can get a hold of JTG.

Jeremy: HA, poor JTG. Did you realize he was still employed?

Kevin: Yes because I’ve gone thru that roster page too often recently during shows. If I hadn’t done that, I wouldn’t know. He doesn’t even make Main Event.

Jeremy: If there was ever a time to replace him wouldn’t it be now? They have Xavier Woods after all.

Kevin: There is no reason to pay someone who can’t even make it to Main Event. JTG should be gone.

Jeremy: Unless he is a trainer behind the scenes? I have no clue what he does as a function for the company.

Kevin: Knowing the inner workings would always help. Maybe he helps choreograph the Funkadactyls routines.

Jeremy: Saw Chris post that he hasn’t had one match this year. What a great way to make money.

Kevin: More reasons to can the guy unless he’s doing something else for them. I bet he’s the mole who is giving TNA the scoop on the WWE’s story lines.

Jeremy: Then he is the worst possible mole ever. I have always figured TNA’s “mole” was the TYV in the office. “Hey look what they are doing. We should do that.”

Kevin: I can’t wait to see what they try to replicate tonight. Hold on, weren’t we talking about everyone who got canned? We haven’t mentioned any of them yet.

Jeremy: Oh yeah, well it sort of goes hand in hand. Some of these people could end up in TNA.

Kevin: If TNA is smart, they’ll stay away simply because more rip off jokes will follow. I know some of them might be useful with re-packaging but none of them are so good that they’ll drag TNA out of the dregs.

Jeremy: Out of the list of the released Evan Bourne will probably end up in ROH again or Dragon Gate USA. He is too talented for this to be the end of his career.

Kevin: He should land on his feet. No one else will care about the pot smoking. The rash of injuries usually subsides at some point. Hell, once brittle Fred Taylor even had a string of injury free years for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Jeremy: His injuries were from a car accident as well and then a string of “bad luck.” Regardless he has immediate merchandise potential as I have said since WWE called him up. TNA should take a look but they won’t.

Kevin: He’s the only guy I wouldn’t blame them for picking up. I’d be disappointed in him if he did that though. Everyone in wrestling has to know it’s a black hole.

Jeremy: At this time though if they come calling you sort of have to listen and at least consider it. Drew Mcintyre can still make a go of things.

Jeremy: Allow me to interrupt this conversation for breaking news: JTG has been released.

Stunt Granny Conversation: The Walking Dead – Season 4 – A

the-walking-dead-terminusJeremy:  So we getting in to this? Good show but I get the feeling it won’t be the most well received for a season finale.

Kevin:  I was going to start from the end but I think that’s a mistake. Although I can’t avoid saying, I thought there was a lot to be debated at the end.
Jeremy:  OK lets start there. What you getting at?
Kevin:  Rick and crew come in, are a little too skiddish, start shit n someone else’s “house”, Terminus doesn’t try to kill them and only directs them to a train car and then Rick wants “Show them who they’re screwing with.” Asshole, it’s their place. You voluntarily came into it. They are allowed to screw with you especially if they do it in a non-violent way.
Jeremy:  They just went through a battle at the prison. They also just encountered a roaming group of viscous, murderous rapists. Their guard has to be up. Seeing that they had the clothes of your friends on and then lie to you about it gives you the leeway to be an asshole.
The whole not trying to kill them thing, um, you did see the flayed skeleton pile right?
Kevin:  No, I didn’t see that. But they did intentionally shoot around them instead of just killing them. I was wondering if Terminus uses the train car as a cooling off method knowing that everyone coming in has had a traumatic experience like Rick & crew so they use it to help people readjust.
Jeremy:  I thought the same thing until I wondered why they are wearing and using their clothes and accessories. Would seem to me that if they were letting them cool down you wouldn’t steal their belongings. It was obvious they were guiding them somewhere and they even mentioned it while running. Also, when running you could hear someone yelling in one of the containers.
Kevin:  Definitely missed the yelling part. Are you talking about other containers than the one with Glenn & company in? It was a little strange to borrow someone’s stuff and use it but again, why not kill them already? If it’s their ploy to lure you in by saying everyone is welcome, it has worked so just eliminate them. Why feed them or even keep them around because someone could hatch a plan of revenge.

Stunt Granny Conversation: The Walking Dead – Season 4 – Alone

walking-dead-aloneJeremy:  So so you like Bob any better after this episode?

Kevin:  I’ll answer your question by starting at the beginning of the episode. Am I the only that thought they found Bob in the prison?

Jeremy:  Yes. He even said when they introduced him by saying they found him “out there.”

Kevin:  Okay. I must have forgotten about that. Bob certainly has more of a character after that episode but I’m not sure I like him, Maggie or Sasha any more after that episode. No one stepped up in that trio to be the leader.
Jeremy:  I liked his matter of fact attitude. When Daryl and Glenn approach him and he just stands there saying hello.
Kevin:  He tried to keep the group together and you can’t blame him for trying to get all up into Sasha.
Jeremy:  I see your side of it though. They are all codependent. Maggie gets all hard and takes off but then stops out of the blue. Sasha was beggin Bob to stay so she wouldn’t be alone. He gets some play and continues on. He turned out to be the only admirable one or at least hardened. Can we talk strategy and logic for a moment?
Kevin:  Sure, whose strategy?
Jeremy:  Those three. Sleeping in woods. Maggie just passing out in open instead of going to a friggin building twenty feet away. The sleeping in the open makes no damn sense. Let alone walking in the woods.
Kevin:  I wold have felt the least bad about anyone them being knocked off because of their strategy.
People have been staying out of the woods for almost the entire run of the show but all of a sudden, everyone is loving the idea, not just this trio.
Jeremy:  Right, Rick and Carl got to a house when Rick could barely move. Michonne at least joined a herd and was in a field of low grass. No idea what Carol and Tyreese have been up to.
These three decide to go camping. After the fog wouldn’t you hightail it? how turned around are these three rubes?
Kevin:  Carol & Tyreese found the tracks in their one episode. The fog was a cool way to get in a zombie attack since I don’t feel I’d seen it before.

Fog can be anywhere but again, if you’re in a field or something more open, you’d have more vision even in that situation.
Jeremy:  I was thinking that the time frame on all of this is part of the issue. How many days has it been? Seems liek all the episodes have the same amount of nightfall?
Kevin:  It is getting hard to tell what the timing is. With Carl, Rick & Michonne, you got a decent grasp of it. Or even Daryl & Beth, but this trio has been pushed to the back. I feel like they were in the same spot they had been left in their previous episode though so the day count is about the same as other groups.

Stunt Granny Conversation – The Walking Dead – Season 4- Inmates

walking-dead-inmates-650x364

Jeremy:  OK then let’s do this. Carol’s back and they had a good explanation as well.

Kevin:  A very good explanation really. She was too attached to those kids. The kids like her too.

Jeremy:  Her excuse was a tad flimsy to Tyreese but under the circumstances it is easily believable.

Kevin:  Tyreese didn’t completely seem to be buying it but he figured the benefits of having someone else around outweighed a bad excuse.

Jeremy:  Yeah true I chalked it I’ll to shock and then elation. He has the baby skills of a rock. Psycho girls approach was more effective.

Kevin:  Killing  Judith would be one way to deal with a baby. I do love that the child looked too old when it was first born but now seems to be young for her age.

Jeremy:  Yeah that kid about up on size and has gone stagnant. Maybe that is the future of mankind; a world of Benjamin Buttons? I thought that was a nice moral dilemma. How do you handle that? Tyreese saved Judith but then she is possibly going to be your undoing.

Kevin:  I was a little surprised they had enough sense to grab some formula for the kid. Tyreese had it the worst out of anyone with Judith & the 2 little girls. Yikes. No help until Carol arrived.

Jeremy: On top of that one kid who is a tad , um, off her rocker and the other a blubbering mess. Seems pretty obvious now who killed Sasha and the other guy. Carol was clearly covering for her. Oh and the feeding of zombies.

Kevin: That kid has gone over the edge. At least with Carl, you see that has hasn’t completely lost it.

Jeremy: Carl seems to just be going through puberty in a horrible time. This chick probably had some issues before all of this and circumstances have added to the problem. I don’t feel much sympathy for her for some reason. Her sister seems like a regular child.

Kevin:  They introduced her as crazy so it’s hard to sympathize with her. If your theory is right and she did take out the 2 infected people, even less reason to have sympathy.

Jeremy: Just hoping it doesn’t turn in to Carol doubting herself again over one of the kids she trained or molded turns out to be a list cause. They have dine too good of a job building her up.

Stunt Granny Conversation: The Walking Dead – Season 4 – After

the-walking-dead-after-carl-rick

Jeremy:  After a few months of anticipation the show seemed incredibly uneven.

Kevin:  I think not having everyone in one spot made it feel uneven. Even when they don’t have major roles, you at least saw more than 3 of the main characters.
Jeremy:  My concern was the Carl arc. His emotions jumped all over and out of the blue. His anger made absolute sense. His arrogance building up as well. Then out of the blue he crumbles? In the span of three days.
Kevin:  I thought he was a justified dick in those situations. But I can see him being a basket case in that short amount of time. No matter what he’s learned, I’m not surprised some suburban white kid is going to turn into a bad ass who doesn’t flip out when his dad or some authority figure isn’t around.
Jeremy:  They showed him as too confident for the transformation to take place. The last image we had was him surveying the land eating pudding. Them he falls apart. It as as if there was another scene removed.
Kevin:  I think all of the bravado led to that moment. He’s trying to put up a facade but he can’t maintain it for that long of a time period. No matter how many people or zombies he’s killed, he could always run back to Rick Michonne, Daryl or Hershel. No back up.
Jeremy:  Yes, I also forget he is barely teenager so his lashing out will come and go. It was also a short time, literally, where he was being taught how to use a gun. You know he was going to get in some trouble on his own. The first round was nice as it showed how easily the slow moving walkers can overtake one person.
Kevin:  I was waiting for Carl to get taken out. I thought maybe he’d be more cautious after the run in with the walkers he lured away from the house. That is the other interesting thing about Carl, he made good decisions to go with the bad. Smart plan to make the noise away from where you’re staying.

Stunt Granny Conversation – The Walking Dead – Season 4 – Dead Weight

Which one became the new right hand man and who's zombiefied in the drink?

Which one became the new right hand man and who’s zombiefied in the drink?

One episode to go gang before the Waking Dead will break our hearts and no doubt leave some of us very angry.  Yup, one more episode to go before this half-season cliffhanger. The Governors plight came to an end. The events may have been a bit jumbled and the timeline is still in question but how did they guys feel about it? How stupid do people continue to be on this show? How convenient do the show writers make it for their characters? A tank? Really? Oh nd a driver to boot? Ok, whatever, just make it worthwhile.

Jeremy:  So, like I said last week, I wasn’t buying the Governor done good garbage.
Kevin:  Yes, it’s an interesting window into the world of TV. We know what the evil guy did in the past but you can’t help new meat from being fed to him. We never bought his turn around but people in zombie land are all that matter.
Jeremy:  If those women didn’t have that girl Megan he wouldn’t have bothered with them. So it was no surprise last night when he turned and took power. He was never redeeming himself. He was using them.
Kevin:  The whole opening scene backed up your point because it was just him giving her life lessons as he hang dries clothes.
Jeremy:  Lived the reveal of a tank. It was only a matter of time. As soon as they went on the excursion in the woods Martinez and gang were done. He immediately started to size them up.
Kevin:  The tank was one of those moments that is all TV land too. Well, we already did people fighting against people. Then people in gun fights. What can make things more explosive. I got it, a tank!
Jeremy:  Yeah but they did mention the army convoy being hit as well as his new right hand man being a tank operator. A little too convenient but fun.
Kevin:  I did think that was a smart ploy on the Governor’s part to get rid of the people who knew him in the recent past. Can’t let anyone dropping secrets.
Jeremy:  If Martinez had shown he was a capable leader he would have been OK. Getting drunk and hitting golf balls creating noise was pretty stupid. “Brian” is still protecting the women.
Kevin:  I didn’t even think about it that way. The Gov whacking him across the face with a club was rough-looking. Then slowly letting the zombies eat him was even worse.

Jeremy:  The club was really awful. Not sure why but the thought of an edge bashing in to the ear is nauseating. After that being eaten by walkers was almost mercy to me.
Kevin:  I thought the touch of not just pitching Martinez in the pit as the little bit of extra that made it worse. Although it’s not quite as bad as leaving a zombie anchored to the bottom of the nearby watering hole.
Jeremy:  Yes slowly pushing his head in to the pit was terribly clever. Helps make the story of him getting drunk and falling in the pit more likely. Of course the logic involved with a pit of walkers can be argued. The symbolism of trapping the innocent rube in the lake was obvious but not sure that is the smartest idea. Made for a great visual.
Kevin:  Yeah, leaving a walker alive always comes back to bite you in the ass. Plus, who wouldn’t use that water from time to time if it’s Kool-Aid blue?

Stunt Granny Conversation: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. A Few Episodes Later

my-god-has-a-hammer

Last week Kevin and I started chatting about Agents of Shield and it ended as soon as it began. See neither of us were that up for talking about this show. Can you blame us? It has been a gigantic disappointment so far.

Jeremy:  Shield convo next Wednesday. You will watch again. For some reason.

Kevin:  Hot damn, another episode. Really?

Jeremy:  I keep waiting for it to get better.

Kevin:  I wanted to wait until we did the review but it’s not a big point. It seemed like it moved in the right direction episodes 4, 5 & 6 but that one this week was a disaster

Jeremy:  Yeah. Woof. They need to focus on Coulson. Then bring in back stories for others.

Kevin:  How about just concentrating at all?

Jeremy:  Well yeah. He is the only character the audience knows and are already invested. Delve in to him and through that you can bring the other people in. They are doing that with May.

Kevin:  They have given a feature episode to each team member but I still barely know them. Fits & Simmons (giggle, giggle) went to college together yet he isn’t banging her hot ass.

Jeremy:  They are trying to make Skye the down to earth character but she is annoying and can’t act. As I put on Facebook, she needs to be in her underwear at all times until she improves or they kill her. I will say, I liked that Fitz wasn’t a pussy in the field. It actually added to his character. He is a Shield agent after all and nit some bumbling nerd.

This is where we left things on Friday afternoon. Fast forward to Wednesday the 20th and we start talking about last night’s episode and tying in the previous conversation.

Jeremy:  So after last night’s show how you feeling about Shield?
