Rambling film is a weekly series were I ramble about the things I watched on television.
The Walking Dead
We got another week of filler, but at least this filler was somewhat interesting, though very plot device-y.
Glen is back! Literally no one thought he was actually dead because of the way the powers that be and everyone involved with the show talked their way around it, but it was so nice to see him back.
Rick, Carol, Morgan, and Michonne finally had a talk about Morgan's bullshit "all life is precious" mantra. Carol was seething that he let some Wolves go, Morgan tried to counter with "Well, Rick didn't kill me back in King's County, and if he did Daryl and Aaron would be dead." No, he knew you. Doesn't count. That conversation was not along enough though.
Other small things that happened: Rosita is a wonderful teacher. Poor Denise is getting tricked into helping Morgan, Maggie saw Glenn's signal, Ron is walking around obviously planning Carl's murder and no one seems to notice.
Oh, and the tower fell, knocking a hole in the wall and letting the walkers in. It was a beautiful scene, and now finally this season will pick up the pace again. I have to laugh a bit about how obvious the plot devices were in this film to get groups to split up. Carol leaving Judith with Jesse so she can get stuck with her, and Carol stuck with Morgan for example.
Can someone get Nick Offerman an Emmy? The guy was brilliant in this week's episode. I was so worried someone was going to shoot him during this stand off but he drunkenly talked his way out of it. It was perfect.
Can the Blumquists die already? They are seriously so stupid. I'm almost to the point where I can't tell who I want dead more, them or Dodd.
Agents of SHIELD
Okay, they threw in some bullshit about Jemma saying she loved Will even after she found out Hydra was tied into the group that sent Will, which makes no sense, but whatever. They kissed, this show will probably throw in another wrench somewhere in regards to them, but it was so sweet.
The Hydra tie in was actually really cool. Ward actually had more purpose to the episode besides lurking in the shadows, doing some mustache twirling villain dumb fuckery.
It turns out Coulson was playing Rosalind just has hard as she was, only she genuinely seemed to have no idea what exactly was happening regarding the InHumans.
IT Hunter was amazing. One thing SHIELD does really well is it's infiltration/heist scenarios, and this one was top notch.
