    Correct. Wilfred is Frodo Baggins all grown up.

    Hah! Funny. Had to Google that. "'Wilfred'...is a semi-dark comedy in which Frodo Baggins frequently shares a bong with a large Australian man wearing a dog suit." - NY Times review: Elijah Wood in 'Wilfred' on FX

    Didn't watch all of it but the little bit I did watch was absolutely bizarre but enjoyable.

    Technically correct but pokemon_dad caught the intention behind my post.

    Next season they will align themselves with Wilford.

    One of my favorite shows. The AU original (also with Gann as Wilfred) was also good, but the US version was much better.

    I wonder if this will be like The Walking Dead where every season another baddie will emerge.

    I thought it was a good summer show. I think Melanie did a lot of F#&ed up things but in the end, she's thinking long term. She said the drawers were a "life raft" (I think that's the term she used) because supplies/food is scarce and eventually people will be starving maybe years from this point and I think she intends to use the drawers to store people and keep them asleep so they burn less calories so they can keep more people alive longer. Using the tail people is just a way to keep it secret from everyone.
    I can't imagine a new train popping up at the end of every season.

    Melanie lies quite a bit, so have to question anything she says.

    I wonder who Layton is going to "get busy" with next season. His ex is pregnant with his child but she snitched on and got his other ex killed so they're not on the best of terms. He's the star and seemingly has to have a love interest so... Melanie? Melanie's daughter? Ruth? LJ? Mr. Wilford?

    LJ is certainly interested in him. But I can't see it being mutual.

    It's a really bad idea to have other trains or even much regarding the off-train world, since once you introduce there being that sort of presence, you have to face the absolute idiocy behind the idea of a train moving over the same track repeatedly, even across oceans, being how survivors are being kept alive in the first place.

    So if I'm expected to ignore that and consider it to be some sort of metaphor, they've basically entered very shaky territory with that second train, and with the broadcast received from somewhere outside the train.

    Almost every sci-fi show enters shaky logical territory at some point.

    Well, the broadcast was from the other train, so there's really only one problem for you... ;)

    White female sociopath falling for a jaded Black police detective. Now where have I seen that before?

    Huh. This is interesting...apparently, all the graphic novels, the movie, and the TV show are officially in the same continuity.
