    OK, I accept that my post was trollish. Kinda a drive-by shooting. Let me elaborate on what I meant.

    First, let me say that I LOVEEEEEEE the first 2 seasons. I have listened to both of them twice and they are awesome. I think everyone here agrees to that. Also, I think it's my unnaturally strong love for the first two seasons that has caused me to lash out about the third season. I acknowledge that the third season is only getting started. I also acknowledge that it does not suck. But I have been disappointed in the story so far and I'll tell you why.

    I'm going by memory here, but it seems to me that by this point in season 1 and season 2, there had been way more action, or even just stuff, happening. Heck, in season 1, there was a zombie apocalypse, fighting their way out of a gun vault, driving through the city, rescuing some people, killing more zombies, and clearing a building in just a few episodes. Maybe I'm crazy, but season 3 so far has furthered the CURRENT story by about 1 or 2 parts compared to what we've seen happen in season 1 and 2. Granted, lots of time has been taken up with filling in back-story. It's kinda interesting, but still, it is the PAST. The past cannot be as interesting as the present, at least to me. And doing all of this past stuff at once smells a lot like EXPOSITION. Exposition is bad. It should be doled out in small, bite-sized amounts; I feel now like I've had my fill and I keep saying to the computer, "get on with it!"

    OK, commence bashing. I can take it.

    No actually..good on you for jumping on here and defending yourself/explaining...while some will disagree with your opinion, most will acknowledge that it's just that...an opinion..everyone is entitled to those.

    Thanks, 7odd.

    Oh, I forgot to mention one more thing I am unhappy about:

    I miss Burt! He's my favorite character!

    I agree. Good on the dude for coming back on and showing he's not a drive-by poster.

    Loose ends had to be tied up before the story can move into the new arc for this season. It only makes sense if you think about it from a storytelling standpoint and not just from a listening standpoint.

    That said, good to see you're not just here to thug it out.

    If the loose ends hadn't been tied up yet, what disaster would have occurred?

    The disaster is in clean storytelling. At some point, they have to be tied up....ok in theory. You could leave them all loose and what not.

    But the point is, now that we've knocked this stuff out, we've gained some more knowledge, the characters have more information about what happened to them and can inform future decisions with Kalani's back story. This is as good a time as any to take care of this. It can't be all action all the time or you'll never get the chance to appreciate what the characters are feeling and going through. If the chopper never landed, we never would have received the tid bit about Michael feeling like the rest of the Tower Survivors are like family, more so than any member of the armed forces.

    That's why the story has to slow down every once and a while, and that's why it makes sense after the epic nature of the Season 2 finale that you have a bit of action at first, followed by some downtime and exploration.

    Fair enough. I guess I'd prefer to get these tidbits in between gunshots, but I'm weird that way.

    This thread is in danger of jumping the shark now.
