  1. The premiere episode of the 8th season of Fear The Walking Dead is an stunning example of unambiguously bad writing.  I feel so bad for Kim Dickens, whose character came back from the dead for this shabby effort.

    Way too many shows these days characters behave in ways most convenient to the plot, rather than from any believable psychological motivation.  But FTWD tops all those with stunning ineptitude, having characters contradict themselves about what they want and why, within the same scene.

    I almost want to encourage people to watch it to see how veiling a story with mystery and suspense can't always mask your puppets strings.  There ought to be a registry for writing crimes like this.

    But... while he definitely rose from the ranks to become a marketing executive at Frito Lays, he appears to have vastly overstated his role in the origin of the "Flamin' Hot Cheetos" and its spin-offs. 

    Oh yeah, that part is totally made up.  Apparently it was a fresh out of MBA school marketing team.

    We're not really going to see new galaxies at all, apart from via collision and remaking of existing ones- there just isn't enough free-floating gas in the universe anymore. 

    40-50% of all normal matter is in intergalactic space.  Space is so big though that still just like 1 particle of hydrogen per cubic meter.  It's also hot -- 10,000K to 1,000,000K.

    Also, research indicates supermassive black holes are hungry, feediing off intergalactic gas even when they're in a galaxy (not all are in the galactic core -- Milky Way has around 100 million of them), so I imagine in intergalactic space they must be feeding too.

    I thought Allison said something to the effect of she will remove her wool once she realizes it's all good. I understood that to mean she will remove her helmet or suit.

    No, I believe she said she wouldn't clean if it was a toxic wasteland out there, but would clean if it wasn't.

    I haven't read the book but my theory is they're putting poision in the suits, so to survive you need to immediate remove the helmet.
