Still not as much of a trainwreck as this season is.
 
2013-10-28 08:17:22 AM  
Season started right at the cusp of mediocre and bad, and could have gone in either direction. It's getting worse.

Marilyn Manson just wanted publicity, I expect for some new project he has coming out. He got it, and this greenlight gives him a little more. So, he thanks you, subby.

I have but one question:

Why are they sending out their two best, most capable people on a dangerous mission to grab antibiotics...for a viral infection?

Hershel is doing a helluva lot more good in attempting to control those fevers with elderberry tea than any antibiotics are going to do.  They should be going to the local areas and grabbing as much aceteminophin, ibuprofen, and aspirin (and any other fever reducers) they can get their hands on.

/not impressed with this season so far.  This last episode was missing a lot in particular.

On the show, their water is going bad and they're all getting sick and dying, so Manson's appearance on the Talking wasn't such a surprise.

Soon as I saw Manson's increasingly fat self on the teevee, I switched that crap off.

It's become a chick show. Lots of expressing emotions and thoughts without using subtext and making the male leads look heroic.

It's to treat the secondary infections that arise out of influenza.
You know, like the pneumonia and such as and further more.

Fever "management" is over rated -- fever is the body's way of dealing with the virus.
Secondary infections will kill you just as dead as the viral badness.

Pneumonia, bronchitis, sinusitis, and ear infections.

Granted.  But people are dieing in literally hours.  Pneumonia, bronchitis, sinusitis, and other secondary infections don't act that quickly.  WIll they need them eventually?  Yup, and its a good idea right now.  But these people are literally melting away in hours and the description is that its an absurdly hot fever.  Yes, fever reduction is overrated in your average infection, but if you have prolonged temperatures of 104+ (which I think visually is what they are attempting to convey) its the fever that is lethal.

Crazy stuff there.
You treat the symptoms, which can easily lead to bacterial infections and normally do.
You do know that most people who die of "flu" actually die of pneumonia, right?
Especially the old and the young.

I agree with you, a simple thing like cholera would have made more sense and had a basis for justification of going to get anti-biotics.

Wicked Chinchilla: /should have gone with cholera, not a random pig flu....


Yeah, it seems contrived.
LIving that close, drinking that funky water, plus all those pathogenic body fluids all over the place, they would have had GI issues pretty quickly.
And that would be the least of it.

Not a drop of purell to be found...
If they all died of diarrhea it would be a pretty realistic outcome.

Chris Hardwick is the low point in everything he's in, he seemed kind of snippy/hostile to Manson.

He also kept pontificating about The Walking Dead as a whole with a real "big picture" take on everything rather than staying focused to the damn episode.  Both "super fan" (aka, celebrity) guests were wastes of space tonight.  I felt bad for the producer.

/You don't need to explain about the governance styles of the governor vs. Rick (and you were wrong anyway, Ricktatership? did you even WATCH the bloody show) you are talking to people who watched the flipping show.
 
2013-10-28 09:09:35 AM  
I know the car is "Product Placement" but really, get a truck!

They have had plenty of time to armor up some vehicles A-Team style, even if it is just mesh over the windows and push bars on front. Or just get a police car; speed, endurance and a siren to lure the walkers away.

Also a tractor or construction vehicle would make short work of the Walkers on the fence and would allow them to add additional fortifications and obstacles beyond the fence and stream.
 
2013-10-28 09:09:47 AM  
I don't watch Talking Dead much. They don't understand their own show. But everything in the parts of the transcript I just read make sense. It's also the deepest I have seen anyone go into the show or the writers ideas.

The difficulty may be translating Manson's language. Artists on his level have very specific ideas but are (almost comically) incapable of articulating them. It's why people with brilliant minds often come across as kind of schizophrenic.  When in reality the ideas they are expressing are fully formed. They just can't get them out clearly. It's a cruel trick God played.

(pulled at random because I am not particularly interested in what MM has to say either)

Manson on Rick getting a John Deere.
Marilyn Manson: Literally, like Rick's a farmer. He should have one of those John Deeres and just drive their legs off. Then, they can't walk.
Chris Hardwick: Yeah, you're right. This show just suddenly doesn't work for me anymore, because he doesn't have a giant John Deere that he's driven in the prison.
Marilyn Manson: Well, he's a farmer.
Chris Hardwick: He's not really a farmer. He's a cop, who's like I want to sow some crops today because I'm sad because my wife and stuff.
Marilyn Manson: But instead of artichokes, he could...a tractor...just drive like Caligula-style the legs off.
Chris Hardwick: No, I disagree, except for the Caligula part.

Manson thought he was among smart fans and creatives able to talk about ideas on his level. Manson's point in the above exchange is perfectly clear. The survivors have everything they need to literally "mow" the zombies off their front yard every morning. The reference to Caligula was this:

www.theoneliner.com

Which looks exactly like this:

www.thesmartfarmer.com
The host of the show was incapable of keeping up with his own conversation. He had a fantastic opportunity with Manson and blew it badly.

Not just because he cannot speak Rock Star. He is also an idiot.
 
2013-10-28 09:18:46 AM  
manson prefers to weird people out and acts like that on purpose, it's part of his whole shtick.  i can't imagine that any television producer would book him for a talk show and expect him not to act drugged out and unintelligible.

His default setting seems to be "cringe-inducing". He just seems uncomfortable in front of a camera.

Yeah.  It was draining to even have to listen to him.  I'm glad Hardwick called him out on it.  Not that this show is gonna win an emmy, but most of the guests are at least fun and respectful of each other.  Manson seemed like an attention whore that had to have the last word or "witty" remark.  (Yeah, shocker).

I can't believe he used to be an example of "The Evil That is Corrupting Today's Youth!".  Hell, they could show him now as the "after" pic.

inthesticks: Chris Hardwick is the low point in everything he's in, he seemed kind of snippy/hostile to Manson.


It was sad. You could watch Hardwick get more and more frustrated with Manson, until he started being unprofessional.  I understand why he was doing it, given the wife and I were groaning every time Manson opened his mouth, but Hardwick's job is the show, and being rude to guests shouldn't be in his playbook.

Manson had a couple of valid points, but his rambling incoherence and roundabout method of making them (when he did at all) combined with his desire to chime in constantly on (at best) tangentially related topics to the active discussion was infuriating.  He might be a fun person to sit down with in a quiet bar and talk about the show for four or five hours, but the one-hour format of the show doesn't permit his kind of waxing philosophical.

I like Chris Hardwick as a host, and can understand his desire to scream "WTF are you talking about?" at Manson.  But he could have handled it better.
 
2013-10-28 09:53:34 AM  
I didn't read the whole transcript because I haven't watched the episode yet. But Manson's comments didn't seem particularly weird or insane. In fact, it seemed like he was actually interested in talking about the show, and Hardwicke was determined to keep it all jokey-jokey. He seems to do that a lot, whenever the conversation threatens to become interesting.
 
2013-10-28 09:55:22 AM  
Maybe it was Manson's manner and tone that were annoying? Because in transcript form it didn't seem particularly awful.

You don't understand, when the cat's in the box, it's not dead or alive, but both because math. So when the guy with the hat isn't the hat-guy anymore, there's this thing I do in real life, when I want to go to the store, I make a list of all the dog-food bags I'm going to buy, because I have a small dog.  He's kinda smelly and the walkers would like him because he's friendly. I bought him for my ex-girlfriend's birthday from a hobo on the side of the road, and life and zombies are like that, the side of the road. Sometimes you pull over and other times you keep driving but the zombies, man, they want you to pull over but you can't.  They don't make trash bags like they used to, man, and marmalade.

Manson did have some interesting points, but it was absolutely his rambling, mostly incoherent delivery that was off-putting.  As a viewer, you kinda wanted to see Hardwick slap Manson upside the head and yell "finish a damn sentence!"
 
2013-10-28 10:57:20 AM

I understood this perfectly. This needs to be broadcast on morning radio.
 
2013-10-28 11:11:29 AM  
Manson seemed like he came in with some observations he thought would impress but when he tried to come up with something on the fly he sounded like that guy at the party who really wants you to listen to his incoherent rant.

So he'd be perfect on Glenn Beck's show.

Marilyn Manson: The difference between Rick and The Governor is The Governor did have his small community locked down in more of like a Hitler-type situation, where they all were afraid of him, and he ruled by fear.

His level is what anyone who took high school english understands. You can probably recall discussing symbology and metaphors?

The fact that he thinks it's such brilliant and unique insight is typical. And how everyone is utterly bored or even irritated with him stating the obvious is amusing.

I  listened to it for a while, but soon it became apparent that he and his cronies were a little too enamored with their ability to swear indiscriminately without anyone scolding them. Like 12 year olds on their first class trip.
