comment Now that Sons of Anarchy is over… What was up with that homeless lady?
In season 6, episode 9 "John 8:32" Brooke Putner is introduced. She vandalizes some motorcycles and breaks the sweet shop window. The club then tracks down her dad, Gary. Per IMDB "Gary explains he lost their house this week and they've been packing. Brooke found photos of her mom and the article mentioning that John Teller caused the pile-up that killed her mom. "I'm guessing in her messy little brain she blames you guys, I'm sorry," Gary says."

comment What was Bob blubbering about?
My guess was that he got bit by the walkers in the basement (when he got pulled under the water) and was getting ready to commit suicide.

comment Why does Walt talk about Victor's death?
I think Walt definitely "considers" it. He and Mike have an adversarial relationship at best. I think that Walt would like to get Mike out of his business (though maybe not dead) almost immediately but he needs Mike, at least in the short term. However, I think this was the first time that Walt begins to see how much a "problem" Mike is actually going to be for Walt. Once they get to the riverside, it becomes clear that Mike is never going to be of use to Walt again (and may actively be against him) and that is when Walt actually goes through with it.

comment Why doesn't Hollywood make movies related to epic stories like Mahabharata or Ramayana?
So Mahabharata is 18 volumes and the Ramayana is 7 - perhaps part of the issue is that nobody in Hollywood would now where to start. In both cases, there is too much material for a single movie and it's very difficult to get funding for one movie, much less a series.

comment Why doesn't Hollywood make movies related to epic stories like Mahabharata or Ramayana?
I think a lot of the success would depend on the treatment. I think the issue with 47 Ronin is that it took too many liberties for the Japanese audience, and perhaps not enough (or the wrong ones) for a more general audience. I think that old stories can have modern success. For example, the Sons of Anarchy has been one of FX networks biggest shows. It's based on Shakespeare's Hamlet - however many people would never now that as it appears to me only about a motorcycle gang.

comment The Matrix vs. eXistenZ: how did they influence each other?
I think that the common thread between them is actually William Gibson's book Neuromancer which came out in 1984. It describes connecting to a computer network by connecting to a port at the base of the head, losing the ability to recognize the real world vs virtual, etc. It's widely credited as the seminal work of Cyberpunk and is the inspiration for many of these types of films.

comment What personality traits did Walt pick up from his enemies?
Also, the argument could be made the he didn't kill Jane the overdose did. He just didn't make an attempt to save her.

comment “I did it for me. I liked it” - Is this a lie to convince Skyler?
Like he says in the episode Buyout, "Jesse, you asked me if I was in the meth business or the money business. Neither. I'm in the empire business."

comment Name of the movie where two black women are kidnapped, one stabbed in stomach and cut in half
Legion isn't confirming that you were a child, he's asking when (as in specific years, such as 2002, 1998, 2005, etc) you were a kid. Knowing the year you saw the film can help narrow down the pool of options. For example, if you saw the movie in 2001, then anything that came out after 2001 can be discarded from the search immediately.
