      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Fear the Walking Dead

Pretty good 1st episode. Was slow, but what I expected. Did a good job introducing the story. Looks like we're just seeing WHEN it started, not HOW it started, but I was also expecting that. I kept my eye out for 2015 products that were mysteriously available in 2010, but to my surprise, I didn't notice anything. Job well done producers ;)

Very good 2nd episode. I think their depiction of how a city like L.A. (or any big city) would react at the beginning of such a crisis is pretty spot on, protesting, rioting, government cover ups, etc. Honestly, I think these first 2 episodes are better than the first 2 walking dead episodes. It will be interesting to see where they take this, and if it goes to a 2nd season. So far I don't see any action superstars in this series, such as a Rick, Darryl, or Shane. So maybe this series will focus more on the drama as opposed to the action. If anyone has seen the Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, "maggie", knows that a zombie drama can work! Anyway, good show so far!

Preposterous statement of the year.

So far I'm completely underwhelmed with the series. I get that there will be a slow build up to anything of substance just by the nature of the plot, but I'm struggling to keep interest at this point. Maybe it's the actors or the characters but it just isn't clicking for me at all.  The drama is weak, the action is almost nonexistent, and there is little anticipation for the next episode like the TWD does week after week after week. 

At this point it has nothing on TWD and what that show brought to the table right out of the gate.

After two episodes I give it a rating of "meh".

I didn't expect it to be like TWD, and I'm glad it's not. I'd like to see them add a point of view from the police or military, or even government officials. That could make for some good stuff. I'm guessing there are only 6 episodes total, and it looks like the action will pick up a little bit next week. But regardless, I'm hooked on this show!

IDK, I agree with JB on this one. The first couple episodes of TWD really did nothing for me either. I think the first two of FTWD is at least on par or above that, now where they go from here is the real test.

I will agree with LMT though the acting is on the verge of pathetic in this one. I am having a hard time getting into these characters and the mom with her stupid one-just-like-silly-me stare that she has about 10 times an episode is laughable.

Awesome episode! Everything that happened is why being in a big city when an apocalypse happens (zombies or not) is not a good thing. One thing that keeps bothering me though, the druggie kid is STILL wearing that old guy's clothes! Yeah, he's a little preoccupied with zombies and withdrawal, but I think I'd still be able to find some time to run upstairs and change into some clothes.

LOL I was saying the same thing to my wife. "What hasn't that kid showered, combed his hair and changed clothes?"

I'm liking the barber Daniel Salazar so far, but I'm afraid his wife is toast with that crushed foot. It should be interesting to see what goes on with the Nation Guard guys and if the families take off to the desert or if they get trapped in the city.

Nothing awesome about the last episode either.  Same drawn out story line from ep1.  At this point the only surprises the show provides are what moronic decisions will the characters make next. 

I honestly can't believe this series is coming from the same group that brought us TWD. 

I'm starting to understand why the season is only six episodes.  Either the characters are all dead by then because they are idiots, or, the producers knew they could make a boatload of money based on hype alone (but that would only last so many episodes) so they decided to cut their losses early and cash out at six.

CLEAR!!!

The first season of TWD was only 6 episodes also.

 

Kinda' looks like the national guard is going to hold that neighborhood captive against their will, and feed them a bunch of government hogwash to keep them calm.

Huge difference between when TWD came onto the scene and this dumpster fire.

 

Yay! Two episodes of our cast of betas arguing with the NG and then trying to escape their quarantine. I hope my DVR is set...

The first two episodes were much better the second watching. A bit up an increase in the action last week but think this week may be the make or break episode.

Hmmm, went from a full blown riot to day 9 in a national guard "safe zone". Was kinda' hoping they would put more in-between. For a city of several million, that are all supposedly dead already, there sure aren't very many walkers out and about. With all that being said, the show is still good!

Yes JB... I did not like the time jump. Should have gave us some idea of the scale of the infection in the city and how they fortified the fences to create the "safe" zone... hate the time jumps for the most part but this one especially.

I have a feeling in the next 2 episodes the crew will get a dose of the new reality. The lady, Madison, got a little taste by venturing on the outside of the fence for a bit.

Moving ahead 9 days was the best thing that could have happened to the stale, single story line we've been dealing with to this point.  (In fact, this episode should really have been episode #2 with the previous three condensed into ep #1.)  We didn't need to see fence building and the predictable "conflict" between the citizens and the NG as they establish who's in charge now.  Been there, done that.  

I was pleased with what happened on Sunday and some intrigue was finally introduced to chew on until next week.

I thought the barber torturing the soldier was a little much, but oh well. I still find it hard to believe that the L.A. area, which is 10 million plus people, is empty of both living and dead people walking around. Filling up the great western forum with walkers was a nice touch. In TWD we always seen abandoned military posts, vehicles, dead soldiers. Fear is starting to show how it's happening...soldiers quitting their duties, turning on citizens, etc. All things that I totally think would happen. Might also be an explanation as to how towns like woodbury could pop up.

Soldier taking a tail rotor to the skull is from the same movie.  Nice touch. TTD was a nice addition to the finale. Liked their question.  Who will be the Rick of the group? Better yet, who will be the Governor? Great final episode. Looking forward to season 2.

    •   I'm sure if I had the time I could have spent 10 more minutes and made a nice one out of Oak or Cherry wood! Or found a blue Genz box on C/list and been done with it!
    •   You didn't try to call me, I would have given you some old oak boards I have laying around and let you use a few of my basic woodworking tools like a jig saw, an oscillating drum sander and a router with a round over bit.    I always tell my son, if something is worth doing, it's worth doing right.  
    • Ooof, that sucks.  Been there, done that.  Somebody’s still being affected by our day in the soup at temps like that.  Woulda given the world for a few studs in the snowmobile track!
    • Got a set of old new stock mora 10in blades to put it on, and drilled  5 holes in 18-20in of ice no problem with the Milwaukee 1200in/lb-clam plate-mora 10in. Didn't skip or jump. This is gonna be nice for the wheel house.    When I had the HT Polar Fire shaver/chipper blades the drill would cut out because they were to agressive.    So so if anyone comes across some mora 10in shaver blades or 10in shaver blades in general let me know.
    • Sorry to be the guy that quotes himself but more info is needed.  Otherwise, yeah, might as well apply for A season if it’s just a general hunt.  And hope the weather cooperates.  
    • It was 31 below zero when i found  this slush .This is only time I got stuck it was about 2 feet of slush .  I had to jack it out of the water and let it sit for a day half.  I had to hook  3 widetracks together to get it out. 
    •   Oh Shut Up Mike!!!!!!!!!!    Looks like a great time. Thanks for the Hope there is still white on this planet!
    • What the heck is everyone up to? I haven't checked in, in a while, figured I better throw leech a few pictures of some snowmobiling...... hasn't been much going on in our neck of the woods with the wind blowing everything into the grass or woods.   Anyone else been out west yet?   7 of us shot out to Cooke City a week ago ( Jan 10 ) and rode the BearTooth Pass / Top of the World Wyoming on Thrus, then headed for Cooke City Montana to ride Friday and Saturday. Met up with 3 more and we had one of the best deep powder rides ever!   Always a lot of work when you ride in the deep stuff but it's something you always wait for, got a good work out from getting stuck ALOT and helping out the others too. I believe the snotel site topped 102" of snow ( they actually topped 100" around new years too ) which is early for them to get that much snow but not all places out west are getting snow, our friend from Colorado said one of the ski resorts out there was only 25% open ...... good thing we didn't plan on going to Colorado riding this year!   I didn't bring a camera with so I had to rely on my buddies to supply a few pictures.   There were some meadows and bowls that were STUPID Deep with powder, dang near didn't make it out, had to be an easy 3 to 4 feet of powder back in them areas...... it was AWESOME!!!!   When you see this much snow in town, it's going to be GREAT up top!                        
    • Some of my cam pics this year. Still showing bucks with antlers in the last week or so. 
    •   Thanks for the offer but I'm not sure how much it will get used. If he shows and interest to get back out there then we'll look for a better solution.    And it was just old scrap plywood from the garage!  Geez you wood guys really get Grainy!
