Watching Dead – Season 7 Wrap Up!

Jim and A.Ron say goodbye once again to AMC’s The Walking Dead, but first, we have some things to get off our chest and a ton of feedback from our fellow fans to share. What lane does the Dead need to stay in? How long can it last? How big a star is Andrew Lincoln, anyway? Will the War with Negan last 8 episodes, or 16? Just how many episodes of Trash People backstory will we be inflicted with? Should Gimple and company just let Heath go? All this and more will be discussed!

Watching Dead – 716 – The First Day of the Rest of Your Life

by The Walking Dead’s season 7 finale, “The First Day of the Rest of Your Life”. Well staged action and CGI stunt tigers get the pulse pounding, but it’s not long before well worn bad habits start to get in the way; a convoluted plot by Negan to once again impress upon Rick that resistance is futile, literal Garbage People, and Sasha’s “I’ll save you from the situation I helped create” heroics, all these unfortunately mire the proceedings. But that’s not our last work on the subject. We’ll be back later this week to wrap up the season, so get your email in before Thursday if you want to be heard!

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!
