Watching Dead – 713 – Bury Me Here

Jim and A.Ron agree that AMC’s The Walking Dead delivered an entertaining episode with “Bury Me Here”, but maybe not for the reason we were supposed to. Hilariously bad premises, unbelievable payoffs to trivial moments, characters getting massive backstory dumps before being unceremoniously bumped off… it’s a pretty full “Bad Walking Dead Bingo” card. But hey, an end to the era of rampant Morgalizing, so that’s something!

Watching Dead – 712 – Say Yes

Jim and A.Ron are reasonably pleased with the latest episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead, “Say Yes”. After many long years, TWD finally found a way to have a philosophical argument about “why we fight” and “what’ it’s like out there” and “this is the way the world works” that doesn’t actually involve any of those words, and inserts a few new ones, “hope” and “future”. The fact that it goes down between Rick and Michonne, characters with chemistry that we actually care about, makes it that much sweeter. But then there’s some dodgy action, and that whole mess with Rosita, and literal garbage people, and you know? Our feelings are complicated.

Watching Dead – 711 – Hostiles and Calamities

Jim and A.Ron point and laugh at poor Eugene in the latest episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead, “Hostiles and Calamities”. Eugene fails at lobster, succeeds at Yar’s Revenge, blows up some balloons, puts on a wiz bang science show, and ultimate turns into the bad guy? Yeah right, we’ll believe it when we see it. Meanwhile, Dwight reaches the sad boring conclusion of the Dwight/Sherry saga that began way back in episode 606, “Always Accountable”. Also, A.Ron vents his spleen about Eugene’s direction in the Spoiler Section tucked safely away at the very end of the show.
