The Walking Dead: Season 5, Episode 6 – “Consumed”

I am still missing what is so awful about Grady Memorial Hospital. I, for one, would not hesitate to indefinitely mop floors if it meant sterile living conditions and food. Beth just needs to shut her face and be nice to Dawn. I guess she won’t have to, though, since apparently Daryl has gone back to camp to summon the reinforcements. There has to be a big, ominous standoff between Team Rick and a “threatening” outside establishment – this type of battle has become typical of the midseason finale. I hate when things become typical on The Walking DeadContinue reading “The Walking Dead: Season 5, Episode 6 – “Consumed””

The Walking Dead – Season 5, Episode 4: “Slabtown”

I typically watch new The Walking Dead episodes 3-4 times before finally sitting down to write. I just spent the last 20 minutes staring at the “play” button on my TiVo menu, unable to will myself to press it. I’ve watched it twice, and that’s really about all I can handle. Why didn’t I care about the return of Beth? Mainly because I forgot she was even gone in the first place.  Continue reading “The Walking Dead – Season 5, Episode 4: “Slabtown””

The Walking Dead – S5, E3: “Four Walls and a Roof”

While watching “Four Walls and a Roof,” Steve pointed out that there were Bible verses printed on wall hangings in Saint Sarah’s Episcopal Church. He nonchalantly asked me if I thought they had an significance, and then he promptly went back to crushing his candy. My husband notices really intriguing details, he just doesn’t obsess over them like I do. While I give him full credit for discovering this fascinating detail, I am the one who dug into it. Of course, specific passages highlighted in a church during a zombie apocalypse are clearly not a coincidence. The following verses are listed on a wooden, tablet-esque wall hanging that can often be seen in the background during particularly tense moments: ROM 6:4; EZ 37:7; MA 27:52; RE 9:6; LU 24:5.

The Walking Dead – Season 5, E1: “No Sanctuary”

Rick and friends find themselves in an inescapable situation, yet manage to escape and reunite with long-lost group members all by the episode’s end. Riveting. Continue reading “The Walking Dead – Season 5, E1: “No Sanctuary””

The Walking Dead, Episode 416: “A”

I had a thorough discussion regarding “A” with my mother last night, who is one of the true authorities out there on The Walking Dead. My mom’s main concern about this episode was one that had not occurred to me, but now that she has brought it up, I must admit that I find it quite disconcerting as well. How exactly does one cannibalize a human during a zombie apocalypse? The virus is in everyone, so when someone dies, he or she will inevitably become a zombie. What is the turnover time here? Apparently, a good method is just to “chop them up and toss ’em on the grill,” at least according to mom. Maybe. Hopefully this will be addressed in Season 5, because it is a significant issue.

The Walking Dead, Episode 408: “Too Far Gone” much like the show’s plot

The best thing to come out of “Too Far Gone” is the fact that there can never again be a battle for the prison. Never!! Bwahahahaha. I don’t know what the writers will do when it comes to the season finale, or all further midseason finales, but they are going to have to put on their thinking caps and come up with something new. The prison is destroyed. The Governor is dead. One-leg Hershel is now no-head, one-leg Hershel. It was refreshing to see so much action, and even more refreshing that the plot will now have to extend beyond the prison walls.

The Walking Dead, Episode 403: “Isolation”

I did not dislike this episode, but I really don’t have too much to say about it. It was just one of those mehh episodes with a lot of dialogue and setup. In theory, this means that next week’s episode should be pretty good. Should. Unfortunately, I am still haunted by the massive disappointment that is Season 3, so I remain a bit skeptical.
