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 5: “Self Help”

“If Maggie doesn’t even give a shit about Beth, why should I?” This had never occurred to me. The one person that should be out there championing the search for Beth has all but forgotten her little sister. She’s found Glenn, so she has disregarded Beth. My mom is a huge Dead fan, but, as evidenced by her above observation, even she reached her limit this week. It is becoming a weekly struggle to sit through the entire episode, especially when TLC’s 90 Day Fiance is on at the exact same time and, sadly, is far more entertaining.

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 415: “Us”

With only one episode remaining, “Us” concludes with some of our survivors successfully arriving at Terminus. The most dramatic aspect of this sequence is the fact that they are greeted by Denise Crosby, aka Rachel Creed from the spectacularly awful film version of Pet Sematary. I can just hear Jud Crandall now… “Sometimes, dead is better.” Continue reading “The Walking Dead, Episode 415: “Us””

The Walking Dead, Episode 413: “Alone”

This episode was incredibly boring. I don’t know why. A lot certainly happened, but I couldn’t stay focused on the episode. I found myself constantly rewinding in fear that I had missed something, even though I really hadn’t. Continue reading “The Walking Dead, Episode 413: “Alone””
