We start with a discussion of the last episode… that also discusses this one

Like last week’s episode, we found ourselves relating Aaron’s feedback on the previous episode relating to the episode we had just seen. I’ll make the same recommendation this time out to listen to it to pick up some insights on Leave What You Don’t. Discussion about this episode, in particular, begins at 11 minutes and 25 seconds into the episode.

How is seven miles away on foot almost there?

This episode was enjoyed by many, including Mark, but I think I brought up enough points that turned him around a bit. Don’t get me wrong, there were some good aspects to this episode, but there were also some very annoying aspects as well. For example,

We could use your help!

This season, collecting the feedback has been challenging, and we could use your help. Our availability is limited for each of us on Tuesdays when the bulk of the feedback comes in. We have to grab it from the various sources, including the Facebook group, the feedback form, email, and voice mail; put it into a Google doc; separate it into the appropriate sections of the podcast: Ratings, sauces, and feedback; and then fix things like spelling mistakes, grammar, and format, and then divide it by who will read it. If you are available most Tuesdays that we have an episode to record and want to help the podcast out, please drop us a line, either using the feedback form, the Facebook group, or if you are friends with us on Facebook, over Messenger. We’ll work out something if you can, like comping you into the Patreon, assuming you can do that.

    Al is just so awesome her hair knows to fall in line each week and be just as perfect as the rest of her. 🙂

    Yes, Brian I am happy, thank you for asking; we have to help the writers all we can because clearly they need it to get the final push of a good episode assuming they aren’t cutting corners intentionally because someone wants to focus more on the new spin off characters coming or tank the show to make the original’s issues look better. Again it’s frustrating that each week they’re so close to doing really good episodes consistently but it’s little things they leave out which takes good ideas down to just okay scenes. Or they just drop plots all together for a new big bad like this season on the whole has felt; as you said we barely got to know Logan and his motives before they killed him off to do another opposition for the group.

    I maintain that they should have had Logan be the first half season bad and then killed him mid season and we do the horsie people as Steve and Dianna accurately called them for the second half instead of wasting so much time on the kids!

    They’ve picked up other survivors why couldn’t they have run into Grace dealing with Logan or picked up some of the kids at various locations? For as much as they’ve used the child actors it feels like a waste of time we even dearth with them to start with; as much as I don’t like TWD on FEAR they could have used that time for more Isabel group stuff to tease the movie stuff or a show merger. Again – little things that could have made a big impact.

    Here’s one for you guys, how did Logan not know where the gas fields were the whole time? Did he never ask Clayton where they got their supply?! Maybe it’s just me but this seemed like a two person operation at least and if they were join partners wouldn’t Logan know where the oil fields were in case he needed to refill on his runs? Why did Logan need to stalk the team so much asking for the journals? Or was this a situation where Logan supplied the goods they dropped and Clayton supplied the gas to get it there and they never told each where their stash was in case things went bad between them?

    Steve from Oklahoma is all of us with his feedback! 🙂

    Pretty music for Picard Cast.
