Taiwan Summary

Nathan and Oscar traveled to some of the Pacific islands such as Samoa, Cook Island, Vanuatu and Taiwan. They traveled these countries to unpack information that would lead them to where their ancestors might have come from.

They discovered that the Lapita pottery could be found underground in the countries of Tonga Fiji, Taiwan and Vanuatu. People who find and study the Lapita pottery are called archaeologists. Whilst learning about the Lapita pottery, they thought that the patterns on the pottery were similar to the Samoan patterns.

The Language and culture were very similar too!  The basic phrases and words are similar between the Cook islands, Taiwanese and the  Maori. What shocked me the most was the way the Taiwanese people were dancing, it was almost like a haka.

They were successful on their journey because they got to know more about their ancestors and where they migrated from.  Most importantly, they learned about the background of all the beautiful islands that they have visited.

  1. Lets get this out of the way straight away THIS WILL BLOW PEOPLES SOCKS OFF. Im not kidding. I know people here are attracted to this genre for various different reasons but i'd like to think we all share some connection when zombies are involved. For me its the post apocalyptic scenario. I don't particularly need the gore element but it has its place when used well. happy death day online

    In Darabonts take on the apocalypse, you are there. The world is dead and rotting. The military have lost the battle. You wake up with Rick in this new world and get to explore it with him. Its the exposition of the pilot that will probably put the gorehounds off and lead to some small criticism from others. Personally, i want to see that. I want to know how society responded to the phenomenon.

    Those who have read the comic books here know that Kirkmans trick is to get you attached to the characters, like you know them intimately, then kill them off. Here Darabont uses the same trick but not how you would expect nor with who you would expect. watch the devil's candy online

    Im personally invested in this series already. God knows what it will do to the average TV viewer. Im also not a particularly emotional person but i don't mind admitting that i was close to tears on a couple of occasions. There you go. I've said it. Just don't tell anyone.

    I cant say enough about Frank darabont after watching this. He understands what this genre is all about and, more importantly, he understands Romero's zombie world. The zombies are Roamers and lurkers. They act how they should and you do feel sorry for them. This is explored really well. They are a small threat but in groups all riled up and hungry. Well, you know the rest. watch Avengers Infinity War online free hd

    The score is also outstanding. Very understated but poignant. The cinematography is worthy of a movie and the camera moves a lot. I cant recall any shaky cam which some people here seem to despise.

    Kirkman, Darabont and AMC have come up with the series we have been waiting years for. Long may it continue, and you know what? I think it will. The balance is perfect between a horror film, TV show and intelligent drama. Happy death day 2017
