The Walking Dead Fan Edits: “The Killer Within” and “Made to Suffer”

Thanks to Liverdad for commissioning this podcast. It’s outside of our wheelhouse when it comes to commissions, as this time we were tasked with covering the commissioner’s own project, which is a pair of feature-length movies constructed from the first 10 or so episodes of season 3 of The Walking Dead.

Turns out there was a lot of fluff in that season because what he came up with after chopping nearly 7 hours off the runtime was not only more exciting but more cohesive as well. Join us for the podcast where we go over the details of what he changed that made it work so much better as well as our nostalgic observations on seeing season 3 again in a new light.

Watching Dead - 915 – The Calm Before

This week’s episode, titled “The Calm Before”, is anything but. Ezekiel’s trade fair is finally upon us and it’s one for the ages. We’re gratified to see that nearly everything we predicted for this fair was right on the money. The super bus doesn’t get much use but hey, there’s a dunk tank! A trade fair doesn’t mean this episode is a paper tiger though. The major cast shakeup proves that it’s also got teeth. Join us for an extended discussion before the inevitable “storm”.

Goodfellas (1990)

It’s the 30th Anniversary of the gangster classic, Goodfellas. Martin Scorsese has a long history making gangster movies. We covered his latest one, The Irishman, already but now we’re going back to cover his most famous one. It’s a wild ride, beginning with the Marty insight into the allure of the criminal underworld that you’ve come to expect and culminating in one of the all-time great scenes of chaos and paranoia. Check out the podcast to hear what we thought about it thirty years later.
