    Re : LOST’s blast door map - of course it raised more questions! Questions that were addressed a few episodes after when they learned what the ? was (the episode itself was actually titled ‘?’)

    How do you have to censor a clip from a show that airs on tv all the time? I can’t believe I just saw Star Trek: TNG censored like that 🤦‍♀️ the ONLY way this is at all forgivable is if it’s a joke. Please tell me you’re joking.

    Gus Fring’s death is my favorite TV death scene. I loved the character, but his death was perfect for him. I even met the actor and he said the same thing.

    *SPOILER The walking Dead Season 9* Truth be told, when the walkers startet to "whisper" and ne managed to dodge and stab Jesus, I was all like "holy shit, they evolved SO MUCH while the guys had to deal with Negan! It's so cool they're picking up on the first thread there was again!" And then they revealed we got some faggots taking Halloween to seriously. Wow. *clap* That was disappointing.
