We’re one episode away from the end. Somehow it feels like the show is dragging its feet but in other ways it feels like it’s moving too fast for its own good. Join us on the podcast to find out what we thought about the penultimate episode of The Walking Dead!
All rise for the honorable judges A.Ron and Jim. Eugene, minus the bolo tie, is on trial. The charges? Lot’s of bad stuff. But the real thing on trial today is this show. Our faith in a satisfying ending is shaken. But can the entertaining moments redeem a potentially disastrous episode?
The last episodes are upon us. We got some really great questions and some critical, but deserved, feedback. Let’s dive in! You’ve heard of Hot Girl Summer, what about Hot Zombie Summer? The flies are killer. How many spinoffs are still in the running? And are we going to see some characters in Europe?
The show is still staggering on. You saw a slick heist in Ocean’s 11, now get ready for a heist that’s nothing like that. And remember that motorcycle chase from The Great Escape? Try to forget you ever saw that cool thing before watching this episode. What is really keeping us on the edge of our seats is trying to figure out which kid is doing the voice over.
What has been lost? The characters’ humanity. What has been found? Several knives. Feral Daryl has some great line readings for you. There’s no law and order in this world, just random shout outs to thoracic surgeons. Why do we have a shout out to a thoracic surgeon? No reason maybe. And do NOT think of the children. Don’t you dare.
Ye Olde spectacle, The Walketh Dead, is up to shenanigans again. Do you like Ren Fairs? This show does too. Are the walkers getting smarter? If that’s the case, Jim would like to see zombie trebuchets. And is Princess ok? Mercer might be one of those emotional vampires draining her.
Watch out WWF because it seems like TWD is trying to replace you. With lots of people lending a helping hand, this episode is filled with nice moments where we get to see the characters connect. It doesn’t matter if you’re in Westeros or Alexandria, if you’re a bastard child, your DNA will rebel against receiving the mantle from your parent-figures. And buckle up for Jim’s wild food theories and rant against caramel apples.
The Walking Dead is back for the final time. Ready for implausible zombie sneak-attacks? How about inexplicably flipped cars? What about rampant tinnitus? Help the guys figure out if we saw a double, triple, or quadruple ambush. Put on your favorite Shithead and the Dickless Brigade CD and listen to an episode that A.Ron describes as, “Coherent planning for The Walking Dead”.
There’s a lot happening on the TV front, but The Walking Dead has a special place in our hearts and our schedule. Listen in for the five things that A.Ron wants to see and the moment in the trailer that gave Jim hope for the season. How is this show going to hold up against the lavish spending of House of the Dragon and The Rings of Power? Let’s find out.
In this world of zombies, turns out nearly everyone is safe. With multiple spinoff series announced, there’s no need to fear for the lives of the main characters anymore. Unless…the spinoff series are a ploy and everyone dies?! Pick your side of the conspiracy. Join us as we wrap up what can best be described as not the worst season, but definitely not the best season of The Walking Dead.
