Walking Dead: After

Alright, Walking Dead is back.  I might just get rid of my TV after this series it is so good.  Between Walking Dead and Breaking Bad AMC has really ruined other TV experiences.  

I am not going to lie, this episode wasn't the most exciting.  I do think it was a meaningful episode.  It really displayed the human element of the apocalypse and Carl's has been brewing as a character for a long time.  I think he becomes a main character after this episode.  Prior to this I think Carl has been more of a background character and I know there are people that would disagree with that statement.  In this episode Carl comes to terms with his weaknesses and gets a better understanding of his father.  Then Rick tells him he is a man as the episode closes. 

I also think a scene that is easy to overlook it very powerful.  Rachone crosses the road twice.  The first time she is heading away from tracks leading to her group then she heads back crossing the road to go find them.  Even though a lot of things have been left unanswered and might not been action packed this was a very powerful episode.

Restaurant Review: Sushi AI Saint Charles Missouri

My brother invited me here touting the $20 dollar all you can eat Sushi and to be honest I was very skeptical.  When I got the menu I notice that you could opt for all you can eat or select from a fancier selection of rolls and pay by the roll.  I was further surprised to see that they did have a solid selection of nigiri, rolls and appetizers available to the all you can eat diner.

I selected the all you can eat option and the only thing I will say is that the nigiri seemed slightly smaller than usual.  Everything else matched up to what I am accustom.   I was honestly not disappointed by anything I ordered.  While I was there they had this great two for one beer deal as well.  That being said I think I ate a little more than usual but I don't think all you can eat offers great savings for the average customer.  It does allow customers to venture outside of the box.

They are pretty serious about the eat everything you order deal but either go with someone who will eat just about anything or politely inform the staff you are having trouble eating the roll/nigiri.  From my experience they are pretty understanding.   To be polite I would limit yourself to one tester per visit.  Once, you find something you don't like stop experimenting.

Overall, Sushi AI is a good experience.  The atmosphere is a little dark and the reception area is a bit strange but the restaurant does have a trendy feel.  As far as the food goes freshness is not an issue and everything I had I enjoyed.  The one recommendation I have is don't eat until you are "sushi full".  It really sucks.  Fortunately, I learned that prior to my first all you can eat sushi experience.
