    Yeah, I agree that there is quite a bit of fan service and I totally get what you're saying but, for me, the key is to approach Goldrush as a stand alone piece of work. It's like a window into the We're Alive Universe when the survivors are able to let their guard down for a bit and try to enjoy life a little, or the soldiers' unhindered need for clowning around as a counterweight to the stress that they're under. They can't live under constant stress without relief for long, else they will lose it like the characters on The Walking Dead where they devote a whole episode to a character losing touch with reality.

    I look at it as an extended version of the 4th of July Party scene. Once Datu's party is over I'll bet that the fan service might taper off a bit.

    Say what?

    Hopefully the fan service will taper off a bit after the party is over and the story will stand on its own merit. I look at it as a longer version of the 4th of July party.

    To simplify: I think that was Kc's way of showing the soldier's excitement through music. Boom.

    Yeah, he's right, and in many ways Witchdoctor is too. The interesting part will be at the end, what people think of these episodes. I anticipated reactions from fans about the tone shift, and really do enjoy people's honest feedback. It's how I gauge also where the audience is in their emotional arc. The experience and expectations of the audience is part of it, both good and bad.

    The way I feel about the last two episodes, and the tone that it delivers, is that despite the bad times (and basic apocolypse) that they're living in, they are still able to settle down and have a laugh on occasion, it feels more like real life. The colony is in a position that they can let some people try to lead a normal life. Granted, this is being said from someone who knows the backstory and what happened/is about to happen later in the main story. There might be a fair bit of fan servicing, but being a fan from since season 3 aired it's been like a nostalgic hit to me, and it's great hearing the voices of the original series actors again.

    Again admittedly this comes from the perspective of a long time fan, but so far I've really enjoyed it this series, and look forward to seeing what happens.

    Bert and Riley are so cool while still rouge in episode 4. Favorite scene so far.

    The shaving ad with the 6th gen zombie was cool.
