I hate that you even have to say that. If you don’t watch a show within 24 hours of it airing, why are we all supposed to accommodate your laziness?
Anyway, Mrs. Turtleboy has been watching it from the beginning but Turtleboy just started watching The Walking Dead recently and I’m glad I did, because this show is insane. It’s almost too intense though. You can’t just watch it like you can another show and enjoy it. You just sit there waiting for bad shit to happen. And things are almost always bad.
I wouldn’t put it up there with legendary shows like The Wire, Breaking Bad, or The Sopranos, but it’s easily the most gut wrenching and we might have to start talking about it on the regular. If you haven’t seen the most recent episode, stop reading this now because we need to discuss what the hell happened in the season opener.
Last season ended when the safe space of Alexandria was invaded by a bunch of zombies. The only way out for a small group of them was by covering themselves in zombie guts and trying to blend in and escape the town. The season ends as they are wading through a sea of zombies and this idiot kid named Sam yells “Mom,” basically drawing attention from the dumbass zombies that’s gonna get someone killed.
When it seems like the plan worked and they got away Sam was gonna get snuck out of there with a couple others but he turned it down because he wanted to be a bad ass and stay with his mom and older brother. “I can do it Mom.” Next thing you know this happened:
It’s pretty intense but I’m not gonna lie, that kid deserved to die. Nothing worse than someone who wants to be a hero and then can’t come through in the clutch. It would be like if Babe Ruth called his own shot and then struck out looking. That little booger needed to die.
I felt bad for his Mom. She should’ve kept walking and she would’ve lived. But, I mean, if you’re watching your kid getting eaten by zombies you’re pretty much guaranteed to react like that. That’s what makes the show so good. It’s realistic and unpredictable.
Then his dumbass older brother grabbed the gun and tried to kill Carl because for some reason he was still butthurt about some stupid girl who will probably end up becoming a zombie anyway. That kid needed to die a long, long time ago and luckily they finally just ended it. That’s one thing I don’t understand about this show – why can’t they bond together to survive? Why they always got to turn on each other?
My question is, what’s the long term plan here? Because I think I’d rather just be a zombie. I mean, eventually they all have to die right? The zombies own the earth. No one is apparently working on a cure for fixing the plague, and their numbers only grow over time. So like, where do they see themselves in 10 years? Do they ever get to retire? Do they ever just get to have fun? If not, then what’s the point of living? Seems like every day on earth is just another day in which you’re waiting for the worst shit you’ve ever seen to happen. That would get old pretty quickly.
See ya next week.
