    16:08 Now is the time to use a defibrillator and then you dont use it!! and then a few seconds later when you are supposed to use CPR you ask for it!!!??? defibrillators stop the heart from overbeating and CPR is for when the heart isnt beating.

    So, if Sam had Saturday detention in the morning, and the broadcast happened after his talk with his Father. then Day 1 is Saturday... So the entire story takes place on a Wednesday? don't think it matters but canon nonetheless lol

    You can break bullet proof glass using a battering ram. Even a sharpened leg of a chair if you hit the same spot repeatedly and stress the glass, it just takes time. Hell even the super dead eye sniper girl could shoot the same spot multiple times.


    Also, something has been bugging me the past two episodes. So, the sleep death is coming from the radio tower, obviously broadcasting across the world using other towers, as a wavelength. Why not use a Faraday cage or aluminium and lead bunker? If the wavelength is enough to pass through a lead bunker then it's usually also an ionising radiation and thus radioactive, making a few hours a lethal experience. So, it's not an ionising radiation and thus easy to block. I suppose there might be some "crazy invention" that renders the above false, but right now the effect killing people is some kind of absurd magic. It's still a great show, and many other shows have a more absurd premise. But, just a critical point I found worth considering.

      Sniper girl didn't care about falling asleep like the others, I doubt she had escape as her highest priority so much as waiting for the others to die off

      Apparently criticism isn't allowed here. I mean it's not surprising, some fans will shit themselves before agreeing to any criticism. Despite the low ratings nobody managed to form an argument in defense of the show.

    • pan-spaceman

      11 months ago

      Here's a defense-
      A) Nobody actually knew it was a broadcasted deathwave. For all they knew it was a virus, or mad science, or a "glitch" in genetics, or even aliens.
      B) Good luck finding anyone who casually knows/figures that stuff out about radiation. Those who could figure it out wouldn't anyway because they didn't know the cause.
      C) Odds are this crew didn't know that about bulletproof glass. They'd probably figure that it's... bulletproof.

    Matt was good, but there was some really bad ADR during his seen. I could literally here the track where he said "really makes me shit. Like a lot." cutting in and out. It was especially bad because it cut out twice. Very distracting, but a minor note I'll admit.

    I'm starting to see why Burnie kept going "Season one" with air quotes. It feels like we're getting the Alan Wake/Stephan King route on here and not going to be shown what actually causes the big sleep (is that what we're calling it?)

    A lot of great stuff this episode like Matt cameo and the nightmares (especially Jake's.) but overall I feel like this was the weak episode of the season.

    This was a good episode. I think the award for worst fake sex scene should go to Aaron Marquis.


    I just realized the actor who played Alvarez is Martin Sheen's brother. I noticed the name Joe Estevez in the credits and it was nagging at me that I recognized that name but it didn't dawn on me until now where I knew it from. He's constantly noted as one of the most infamous "that guy's" in Hollywood (and I think mentioned a few times on the podcast back in the day).

Something sad about knowing hes just lying on that couch </3 but at least Sam tucked him in before he passed, one last comfort.

    omg ahahahaha aaron oh my godddd that was so funny!!!!! i love aaron so muuch!


    also i loved matt as sams dad!! im so sad he fell asleep on the couch but it makes sense!!


    sad bill didnt come back this ep to save the day. he really helped everyone out last episode lol.


    im a little confused by everything that was happening with ellis and the gang, like ok, evil radio broadcaster guy??? (i always thought he was shady) is the one who did all of this?? that seems to simple to me, like i doubt just turning the broadcast off saved the world, there has to be more to it. im also really tired rn and def am going to rewatch this episode again because i feel like i missed a lot.


    we had sam and jake and allys dream. allys dream was horrifying!!!!

    barbara in jakes dream!!!!!!!! shes so beautiful!!!!!


    then we had doctor dude who was the boss "he seems smart!" lol oh jake. but doctor dude is a jerk i guess. and was like oh we need more people to do tests on?? i feel like thats what it was.


    THEN there are these people with guns and this guys son died and he wants revenge on the hospital/ bunker/ whatever. im guessing he brought his son in for the """'cure"'"" and he ended up dying?


    there was a lot happening in this ep lol i def need to rewatch but i really liked it a lot! i cant wait til next ep, (the last ep im so saaaad) and i cant wait to see ally, ellis, jake and sam to reunite (the better!!!!!)
