Watching Dead – 715 – Something They Need

A decent episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead nevertheless provokes a bunch of questions regarding “Something They Need”.  Is Rick’s group really justified in their “take no prisoners, take all guns” approach with Seaside?  Has Eugene really turned turncoat?  Is Gregory Negan’s “little bird”?  Why can’t Grandma McGee pull a gun on somebody proper like?  And does Rick know that a man is at his most dangerous when he’s on his knees?  Dwight knows.  He’s been to the School of Eugene’s Nut Cracker, and shouldn’t be taken lightly when he’s at crotch level.  Be careful, Rick, is all we’re saying.

Watching Dead – 714 – The Other Side

Jim and A.Ron watched the latest episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead, “The Other Side”, and then immediately crawled through a wood pile and launched an assault on the episode. First we tried sniping, but then we went in for a frontal assault. I promised to watch Jim’s back, and then betrayed him to his chagrin at the end. As always, Eugene, excuse me, Chief Engineer Dr. Eugene, was useless. Listen in for all this, some feedback, and yours truly holding court in the Spoiler Section!

Bald Move TV – Breaking Bad: The Movie

Shayne Bowman from Film Schlubs and Heisenberg Chronicals fame as well as Eric Wahlquist of Personal Arrogants and Direct infamy join A.Ron to discuss the pro/fan edit of Breaking Bad that was dropped on the Internet last week. It reduces one of the greatest television shows in history to a single two hour long movie. What works, what doesn’t, how we’d do it better, and much more are covered. Spoilers for everything Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, you’ve been warned!

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.
