  • Back in business!

    Just finished listening to the podcast; I think the hosts got the same amount of enjoyment out of the episode that I did.  In hindsight the episode marks a turning point in the series.  There will still be stupid stuff in episodes but the show is back to being enjoyable to watch.

    See the description of the video for the story overview and mild spoilers.

    Mostly faithful adaption of the first story (of three) in the comics.  One of those rare movies with a lot of great action and a well-presented story.  Good casting, especially the newest member of "the old guard".  Far exceeded my expectations.

    I think it depends on the writing and the actor as far as who could lead TWD.  I bet a lot of people (not me) would like to see a reluctant Negan in charge, fighting his inner demons to not return to his old style of leadership.

    Only killing off Carl was an "in the moment" decision; the actors who play Rick and Michonne made planned exits.

    I've thought about an anthology show where each season is the same first few days or months in the ZA, just in a different location.  I think that would get repetitive after the first few, however much fun it would be to see variations of this

    There's nothing wrong with getting attached to a character but at the same time that doesn't mean that character has to be in the show for 7 seasons.

    TWD still usually has some dumb stuff every episode, and episodes can vary in quality, but starting with season 9 episode 8*, TWD has gone back to being a show I enjoy.  There's been an increase in classic (as in good and proven, not old and tired) horror elements.  The pacing is much faster, so that key issue has been fixed. 

    * Not that episodes 1-7 are bad, they just aren't improved enough IMO for me to recommend to people who stopped watching and need to be convinced it's worth returning.

    Don't bring a knife to a drone fight.

    Did the EMP wake up everyone in suspended animation, or kill them?  Also, the Westworld universe has suspended animation, no biggie.

    The overall conflict between Maeve and Dolores seems increasingly forced.  Why doesn't Dolores ask Maeve what she wants?
