Yesterday, I tried to combine two tortures into one, wanting the Open Thread to serve as a "Walking Dead" recap as well. However, like reading Uproxx whilst drinking a Bud Light, my day clearly fell apart and so I decided to keep the Thread pure and hold the recap over
So around about the time Brock Lesnar was putting down Goldberg at Wrestlemania ("SUPLEX CITY, BABY!" - Tom Cable), the war was starting on "The Walking Dead". About 90 minutes later, I wish I'd actually been watching it, a feeling I hadn't had all year. It took a predictable Wrestlemania
Well, the stage is (somewhat) set for the finale.
This episode felt like a compilation episode. There were three distinct plot points, and the episode devoted equal time to each, sorting them out by the end and making it clear where things are heading into Week 16. And just like a
So just when I think this show is running downhill, I come to the realization that I've set my bar too high.
This week's episode was a continuation of events from three episodes back, when Eugene announced he's Team Negan & Negan killed the Sanctuary's doctor. But it starts at Hilltop,
A good episode of "The Walking Dead". So good, in fact, that I'm using a special
to indicate such.
Last week, in the comments to the recap of “Rick & Michonne’s Romantic Getaway”, JustStopDude made the prescient observation that "If you just removed the zombie element from the show…this show would have been
This fricking show.
Sure, there were actual zombie kills this week. And the situation they found themselves in seemed plausible given the context of the show. But the constant need to intermix the relationship between the two with the tasks at hand keep the show mired between full-on soap opera and
I don't even know.
I can tell you that I watched the Oscars with my wife, looking for my future wife.
I will die on these hills.
The whole fuck-up at the end was my reward for sticking it through until the end, which was some time after 9:00 Best Coast time.
Just so we're clear:
Sorry not sorry there was no review of last week's episode. I was busy.
Boy howdy - a lot of websites sure liked last night's episode. I'm not sure how I feel. Visually, it was stunning. Plotwise it felt like another Herschel's farm episode, but in three locations.
So, "The Walking Dead" returns tonight.
I haven't given up, but I'm not exactly paying close attention anymore. The highs & lows of the last couple of seasons hasn't given much hope that they will be righting the ship.
Still, if the concept that each season is about 20 comics in length,
As expected, people complained about the season premiere of "The Walking Dead". Specifically, about this:
Also about Negan's flowery language, but mostly the violence.
I am actually kind of shocked, because normally it is nudity that sends the prudes scurrying to their keyboards. The stereotype of American gun culture being what it's
Well, this was the best episode of the season so far. It's just too bad there was so much garbage in between it and the season-opener.
I guess the show justified all the disparate locations so they could wrap up this half by having the 90-minutes filled with scenes in every
The warning on that gate seems like a motto for the season, doesn't it?
This week: Multiple characters! In multiple storylines! A 90-minute episode! Finally, has "The Walking Dead" emerged from its mediocrity and embraced the light?!
I'm going to freely admit that I watched bits of the episode during commercials (and Earl
