Walking Dead Ep19 “Beside The Dying Fire”

So week in and week out I vent my nerdy complaints about how the beloved “Walking Dead” TV show lacks mightily Kirkman’s comic passion.  Plot hole this and mistreatment that, feel my wrath!  Dale’s failed character, the weak Shane kill, a … Continue reading

Walking Dead Ep18 “Better Angels”

Dale is dead, Randall is dead, Shane is dead…and we haven’t even hit the finale yet?  Interesting.  Surely I thought “Walking Dead” would save the biggest drama (Rick vs. Shane) for last, but maybe they still did?  Thankfully, no one … Continue reading

Walking Dead Ep14: “Nebraska”

Oh apocalyptic zombie infested America, how I missed you. Busy with life, I feel like Sophia’s death is still fresh in my mind, ready to jump back into “The Walking Dead” for six more episodes, only to be tormented again … Continue reading

Walking Dead Ep13: “Pretty Much Dead Already”

Well, I can’t say I was surprised with the mid-season ender.  Much like a walker from the show, the first 50 minutes or so limp sluggishly along with a clear goal in sight, and then the final 5 minutes strike … Continue reading
