Season 1 had seven main cast members: Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal, Sarah Wayne Callies, Laurie Holden, Jeffrey DeMunn, Steven Yeun, and Chandler Riggs. All of these actors have left the show due to either their characters dying or the actor wishing to leave the show.
Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride, while appearing in Season 1, were only credited as recurring characters. They are the only two actors from Season 1 to last until the end of the show. Is there any other major primetime show this big that has had none of the main cast from the first season make it to the finale?
I will try to truncate this as much as possible. This has been going on for over a year.
Sep 2019 - stamped concrete patio installed by an LLC company. cost was about $6000. after initially looking at it, it looked good.
A few weeks later, it had rained and I noticed that there was a large section along the patio where it meets the house/foundation that had standing water. I am (and was) fully aware that stamped concrete can have "birdbaths" where the stamped patterns are. But this was definitely not that - this was a much larger area (about 6 ft. long) that spanned several stamping pattern lengths.
I took pictures of the water collection and even videos showing the water flowing toward the house when poured several feet away from the foundation. The owner of the company took weeks to come out and have a look and tried to talk to me as if I was stupid. He offered to put in a saw cut length wise that ran the distance of the entire patio, but refused to redo the section of the patio (rip out and pour again). Knowing that the saw cut would only be a temporary band-aid that would eventually have its own problems, I declined.
A few days later, I left a review on Google reviews of my experience, explaining the problems I was having along with pictures showing the water collection against the house. The owner responded with a very rude response insulting my wife and me, and saying something along the lines of (paraphrasing) "If you think there's a problem, that's why we have a legal system!" So that's what I did.
Oct 2019 - file small claims suit against them. at the court office, the clerk specifically told me to go ahead and put both the owner's name AND the company LLC name on the affidavit, so i did that. several months go by before i learned that the certified mail was ignored and the court sent an officer to hand deliver the subpoena to the owner of the company. shortly after, i learned that the defendant hired a lawyer who had the case pulled from small claims court to general court. it is my understanding now that this was done because "a company can't represent itself" and i put the company name on the affidavit. but had i known this would be the case, i wouldn't have done that. i'm wondering why the clerk not only didn't tell me a company can't be taken to small claims court, but actually advised me to put the company name on the affidavit. In any case - what's done is done.
Unfortunately my wife and I could not (and cannot) afford a lawyer to... keep reading on reddit ➡
Surprisingly good…. It’s what I would use to sum up my reaction to this game. I went into it with negative expectations. Don’t ask me why. I didn’t read anything bad or anything I just bought it cause it was like $5 and it is third person and it looked like a good one to get at the moment. I guess I was wary about it because I saw the trailer and got overwhelmed about prepping up and upgrading the car along other things to do, but it wasn’t like I thought it was going to be. It was way easier than I imagined and I truly got into the “wasteland” mindset and the “world is over” mentality.
If we could line up all the games in chronological order from what happened first to the end of our lives on this earth, Mad Max would be at the end of humans living on this planet (while simultaneously having games in outer space due to earth being a wasteland). So Cyberpunk world happens even before this one does. I don’t know why I thought about where this game would land in a timeline but seeing all the death in this world makes you think about it I guess.
Since it made me think about the real problems that climate change threatens our planet with daily, I would say this game is hella immersive. You can really internalize the situation (death of everything) and feel the atmosphere of what’s happening (despair). I also have to tell you that you CAN smell games, don’t believe me? Playing this thing made me smell grease and oil every time I fired it up. No one else? Just me? Maybe if you’ve ever worked in a car shop, machine shop or anywhere where they fix any type of engines, you’d understand.
While playing this game it made me curious about the movies (like every other game that has a movie has done to me), I had seen as a kid the Thunderdome movie and I remembered a lot out of it but not the plot. I had also watched the Tom Hardy movie and I absolutely LOVED the action but felt there was absolutely NO plot or back story. So I started with the first one and moved along. The very first movie gives you all the context you need, which is by itself pretty flat. A guy that was a cop in some distant future suffers the death of his wife and son and seeks revenge against a gang of weird hoodlums. That’s it. Then the wasteland/world is over setting takes over in the next movies.
I have to say that after knowing the backstory and watching the movies, the story line here is probably the best one out of all the stories. Maybe because you are immersed in it and are living Max... keep reading on reddit ➡
Stage 1: Haha, these Plinkett reviews are pretty good. What is this guy's name? Mike Stoklasa? He's pretty funny.
Stage 2: "Half in the Bag"? Well, I'll give it a shot. I'm not so sure about this Jay guy, but at least I get to see more of Mike.
Stage 3: Mike and Jay have a really great dynamic together! It's kind of annoying when they try to incorporate this Rich Evans guy into their videos, though. He's kind of a third wheel.
Stage 4: I have seen the error of my ways. Rich is love. Rich is life. Hey look, they have a series called "Best of the Worst". This bald guy is kind of annoying though -- Jack, is it? He's just way too high energy.
Stage 5: I'm starting to like Jack -- he seems cool, and he brings a perspective to the table that the others don't. Not a fan of Josh, though -- so pretentious.
Stage 6: Well, I've watched every episode of Best of the Worst, and I have to say, all the regular cast members have something to contribute to the series, and I like them all. Except that Mike is a bit of a contrarian asshole sometimes. (Shark Exorcist? Really?)
This might be a silly question but I can't seem to find an answer online.
Basically, by virtue of my being a very easy person to buy presents for, I was gifted two Mortar & Pestles for christmas - a stone set from my partner, and a cast iron set from my partner's mother.
I don't really want to sell/give away either to avoid hurt feelings, and I'd prefer to use the stone because I much prefer the look and feel. However, I have been wanting a 'salt bowl' for my kitchen for a while.
My question is, can I use the cast iron set as a fancy salt bowl, or is this a horrible idea which will result in my entire apartment exploding (or damage to the cast iron)?
PS. I like to capitalise Mortar & Pestle because it sounds like a crime-fighting detective duo.
Edit: Thank you all for your advice so far. You're a lovely bunch!
So recently, I saw Orlando on Carnival Row and he really impressed me. I'm one of those folks who find his best acting role to be in THe Kingdom of Heaven, Director's Cut. But I ask you what do you think of his acting career? He probably has to be one of the actors best associated with the 00s. He was everywhere and was in oh so many franchises. Wha was your fav role of his or what was his best performance?
