One of the most anticipated episodes of any show ever finally delivered the answer to the question of "Who did Negan kill?"
|Which one? Wait. Both?!? You sons of........!!!
|I hope this was the aftermath of the wrap party
Brian recommends The Ranch on Netflix. Here's the opening song:
A link to show how much money young, dumb Casey lost by walking away from Walking Dead #1.
Original trailer for Walking Dead on AMC:
Robert Kirkman - comic nerd makes good, then great. Kirkman had to lie about the concept of Walking Dead to even get Image Comics to publish it because they didn't want to publish "just another zombie story." He said it involved aliens. But they never showed up. Now Kirkman is a partner at Image comics.
The genius of NBC wanting to turn Walking Dead into Law & Order: Zombie Squad.
|Never hooked up with a villain in the comics = still alive. At least they're keeping with horror traditions.
|One loved his undead daughter; one loved his undead daughter in a Game of Thrones sort of way. Ew.
|And here the Governor is commanding Cobra troops to invade the prison.
Brief thematically relevant recommendation:
|The Road by Cormac McCarthy. Even darker than Walking Dead, but no zombies. Cannibals, but no zombies.
At least there are some fun times ahead on the Walking Dead. King Ezekiel and Shiva:
Back to gore and darkness; Noah's death:
And poor Denise's death:
|Which she totally stole from Abraham.
|Never ran off like a dummy in the comics = still alive.
Speaking of shocking, read about scenes in the comic that either will not or HOPEFULLY will not make it to the show. I blocked out so much that the Governor did.
Judith, LAK. I'd be down with this:
|At least she'd be a character and not a plot obstacle then.
|Friggin' nailed that casting.
|Nailed that one, too. Such a meany.
Speaking of barbed wire bats, wonder where they stole that idea from?
So back to the end of last season's episode. The cliffhanger that brings us back to the top:
|Lucille, meet Barbie.
Which was soooooooo much better than:
|"Can you see it, Jack? That's our audience dwindling each time we leave a plotline dangling."
And to end this dark, depressing post on some high notes:
Walking Dead as a 90s show:
And to end it, "Carl Poppa":
