Friends, TWD fans, we have finally come to an end with Season 5. This past season has taken us through many twists and turns. Some episodes were filled with blood and guts and some were filled with grief and sadness. We lost many of our good people this season too. I also realized this season that I think I like Rick more than Daryl now. Daryl is good, but Rick has become more complex and is no longer the good guy we always believed in.
As much as many of us rant and get annoyed with some of the episodes, I can admit that I still love this show. Regardless of what I am doing on Sundays, I will make time to watch this and that says something about it. Even if we watch it to pick it apart and make fun, it is still fun and better than many shows out there. I don’t there is something about this show that still reels me in like this one. What do you guys like the most about this series? Or have you completely given up on it?
Join Brian, Brad and I as we discuss what happened in the finale.
This week’s episode of The Walking Dead was actually pretty exciting and fun to watch. I like when all hell breaks loose and our characters show their true colors. I have really been enjoying watching the change in Rick occur. Some people are either liking this or totally starting to hate Rick. The person who has always been the proverbial savior of this group. Now in Alexandria, he is almost becoming the pariah and someone they wouldn’t even consider as a leader anymore. I personally like seeing him become less of the good guy and the one to emulate. It’s time for him to show how this apocalypse has destroyed him and made him a different person. He has been through so much and still survived, but it has left him with many emotional scars that have not healed. Overall it was a good episode and there is only one left, so cheers to all for making it this far.
Brian and Brad have joined me again to discuss the episode.
This week’s episode of The Walking Dead was actually pretty good. I know this is super late, I haven’t been at my desk or had time to write all week. I hate these kinds of weeks!!!! So things are heating up in Alexandria and it seems that they are on the verge of something crazy happening. Rick was busy scheming and it sounds like he is ready to pounce on Jessie and scoop her up. Carol is also ready to do some damage and it is obvious all of them are getting pretty bored there. Did you guys notice that Maggie has barely had scenes or lines so far? I wonder what is up with that? Maybe she is going to be killed off soon. My recap is a little different this time. I have interjected myself into Brad and Brian’s convo/rant about the show.
Let’s talk about the episode and discuss the details.
Finally this last episode of The Walking Dead was pretty interesting. Still not the best or that exciting, it was somewhat of a filler, but it is getting better. Talk about weird, the whole episode was centered around the residents of Alexandria and how they pretend the zombie apocalypse barely exists versus the Grimes gang who can’t shake everything they have experienced on the outside. What I really enjoyed was the new found bromance between Daryl and Aaron. Although Daryl is known to be one of the most bad ass characters, he does love a good friendship. I am also enjoying the clean cut Rick, seriously I think I have a new crush.
Throughout the recap you will get bits of Brian’s conversation with Brad regarding the show. This should be interesting!
BRIAN: So, I have an announcement to make…I am officially and permanently no longer watching this show. I came to this realization this week when I couldn’t muster up any interest whatsoever in having it on my TV screen. I just hate everything about it. Fortunately (only for the purposes of this recap) Brad is going to bravely slog through the end of the season, so we’ll be able to provide some back-and-forth vitriol.
BRAD: Yup. This season is the last for me. Definitely. The show just has ran its course. I know where this show needs to go and it’s taking its sweet ass sloppy time. Obviously Rick’s group will become the villains now at this peaceful community. The only other new plot-line they can attempt is the rebuilding stage where the Zombie apocalypse ends by a cure or whatever and humans need to rebuild but that sounds more boring than what the show is doing now. Even the zombie kills are so f***ing boring after 6 seasons I just don’t care anymore. I used to love the zombie subgenre; it was actually my favorite, but now I’m done with it
BRIAN: Why won’t they listen to you??? The only thing that may have been semi-interesting would have been to tell this current story from the perspective of the people who are already there, but that would mean a lot less screen time for the regular cast. Then at the end of the season, everyone dies horribly
Now let’s discuss what went down and talk about what is up with their new prison/farm/hospital/terminus.
So this week I am SUPER DUPER late on my recap. I had a really hectic week and to top it off I lost my TWD notes, those really help me remember everything that happened. I had to give up, but somewhere somebody is reading my notes and thinking what a weirdo I am or thinking they just landed on a great idea for a new TV show.
This last episode of The Walking Dead was a lot better than the past two, where the group seemed to had lost all their mojo and were sad and dreary. The crew is right at the end of where we left them, at the gates of Aaron’s supposed awesome community. Is it truly all that it is cracked up to be or is this place just another Terminus filled with psychopathic cannibals?
Let’s talk about what went down and hear Brian’s take on the episode.
This past week’s episode of The Walking Dead was finally much better than the last two. A great change of pace from the group’s endless bout of depression. There were also a few surprises with Aaron, the new clean cut guy who has somewhat infiltrated the group. He really seems like the nicest and friendliest guy around like a TWD version of Ned Flanders. Hidey Ho, good neighbor! This guy is just way too nice and has the cutest smile ever, so yeah don’t trust these kinds of weirdos. If the zombie apocalypse goes down and you want to make friends, you better be ready to be a bad ass son of a bitch. None of this shiny happy people crap. At the end of the recap, look forward to Brian’s reaction to the episode and yes, I am pretty much dragging him into watching the show.
Let’s chat about what happened.
I have been holding off on writing about this Walking Dead episode, because literally I have no idea what to say about it, other than it was horrible and boring. W T F what is going on with this show? I guess Brian from Hard Ticket to Home Video was right all along. If you don’t know who Brian is, he usually hates everything, but he REALLY REALLY hates this show nowadays. So much that in fact he has threatened to stop watching it, but at this point we need his commentary every week. I have invited Brian to share his thoughts moving forward, so next week look forward to hearing his TWD reactions (this could get ugly). Any who enough about Brian, let’s talk about what happened.
