What an interesting episode of The Walking Dead!

In this episode a lot happened. We get to see that poor Bob, as I am assuming we all already knew, was bitten. You didn't have to read the comic books to figure this out, like someone told me was the way they knew it had happened. It was aptly foreshadowed in the show by Bob walking out to the woods and crying by himself.

I liked the fact that Bob had that creepy laugh with the Terminus people. However, I was a bit disappointed that we didn't get to see that played out. Would you get the zombie virus faster if you ate tainted human flesh? I kind of wanted to know the answer to that one.

Am I the only one who thinks it's weird that the military dude wanted to leave right away? I sort of got it when he wanted to protect weird/smart guy. However, once that situation had been taken care of, as in killing all of Gareth's people, what was the problem with waiting 24 hours for Daryl and Carol? The original threat was gone, the gang fixed the initial problem of a direct threat to weird/smart guy. I thought that was dumb. Also, why would Glenn and Maggie leave with military guy? Haven't they all been through enough together with Rick to stick by his side? Didn't they all agree to not leave anyone behind? Glenn, Rick's group, your group, are the people that saved you numerous times. You are just going to run off with this new group of people? Plus, Rick agreed to go with them if they just wait a few days for Carol and Daryl's return. Glenn, these people won't wait for Carol, the lady that saved them, what makes you think they would risk their lives to save you? Carol, Rick, Daryl -- these people have proven time and time again that they will risk their lives for others in their group. This decision made little to no sense no matter which way you looked at it.

It is clearly just to move the plot forward in some absurd manner.

I'm not sure if it was just me and the device I was watching the show on, but the church massacre scene was annoying because it was shot so darkly. I couldn't see a thing. It was very irritating so it took a little bit of the essence away from it.

Also, did Gareth not just say there was no reason to try and beg for his life, then goes on to do just that?

Shut up, Gareth.

Plus, from a writing standpoint, this is just overkill. We heard their explanation from Gareth's mom to Carol, and also Gareth in the boxcar in the flashback scene. Too much needless reiteration from TWD writers.

I am curious who is going to come out of those woods.

There better be a fantastic story behind Maggie and Glenn leaving to justify such bad writing to get them to go with the group.

My The Walking Dead Thoughts Blog thanks to GoDaddy coupon 149scott

This blog is made possible thanks to the great people over at GoDaddy. I got my very own blog, this one, for super cheap. You can get your own right now for $1.49  thanks to GoDaddy coupon 149scott.

I just finished watching TWD. The episode titled "Strangers" was a good one. However, I do have some problems with it.

I get that we are going to be debating this season what's too far and what's still within reason, morally speaking. That's fine. The problem I have is the changing arc of everyone's characters.

Rick has been annoying for so long because while everyone else "got it', Rick was always lagging behind. Always with the is this right? Should I be a farmer and just opt out? Then kicking Carol out of the group (smh). Well, as the seasons progressed, Rick painfully became aware that this is the world we live in. He even states it in this episode to Bob -- something along the lines of, "this is reality" to Bob's "this is a nightmare and nightmares end".

I'm annoyed because why are we even having this discussion? It's painful. Bob being so gleeful and hopeful? Annoying, but he can be happy, that's fine. Yet, to be thinking at this point that this isn't reality, is just plain stupid. Be happy finding the joy in the world, but know what your world is.

Michonne is the best. She doesn't think of the past. This is the new reality. Doesn't mean she doesn't miss Andrea. She misses what has happened since the apocalypse. She does not dwell on how things should be in relation to the old world.

Carol going to a place now where she doesn't trust herself is simply idiotic.

Carl is the worst. He goes from sweet. To being okay with killing Shane. To knowing he has to kill people or be killed. To hating his dad. To now being wishy-washy about finding the good in people and all people can't be bad?

This is like the stupid nature-versus nurture argument. Can't it just be both?

Not killing the people at the sanctuary is stupid. They don't deserve to live is absolutely reasonable. Going back and killing them is not reasonable because it puts your group in unnecessary harms way.

Yes, sometimes the lines are going to be blurred, but I think most of the time they would not be. If someone threatens you, they die. Simple. If people eat other people, they die, simple. Don't know if this priest is telling the truth? Perhaps hold off. Not hard people, not hard. Let people out of trapped boxcar? Yes. Kill the governor? Yes. Forgiving the girl from the governor's group because she made a mistake. Yes.

Ask me another, I bet I get it right.

I beg of you to not let Rick go back to questioning who he has become. He is their leader. He is doing a great job. His story arc at least keeps pushing forward. The others and the back and forth is awful. This is your world. This is what you have seen. Haven't we left the delusions behind after the governor? After Andrea made terrible mistakes in that regard? After having to kill your own mother? Almost losing Judith? What about for the rest of them? The list goes on and on...

I hope this doesn't go too off the rails.

My The Walking Dead Thoughts blog thanks to GoDaddy coupon 149scott

This blog has been created with a GoDaddy coupon. I love GoDaddy. They make it so that I can blog about my favorite tv shows, and The Walking Dead definitely fits that category. If you would like your own blog, check out GoDaddy coupon 149scott and get your own blog for $1.49.

This is not a recap, this is my thoughts on the show. It's for those who have watched.

Our Scooby-doo gang have found themselves in quite the pickle. I think the way the show opened was great. I mean, right to the action. That was perfect. I loved how beat up the group looked. Great job by the makeup department. It looked real. It looked like sweat dried upon sweat. I really liked it. I liked how even Daryl looked nervous, and why not? The shits going down!

What I did not like about this scene was something I found out later, after googling. I've watched every episode of the series, so I'm not oblivious. I kind of knew the guy at the end of the trough was important, but I didn't know how or why. It was only after I read online that it was the guy from that couple Rick and Carol had met. The ones that they gave the watch to and told them to meet them at a specific time? Well, we saw his girlfriend, Ana being devoured by walkers, but we never saw Sam, until the moment at the trough.

I guess maybe there should have been something more defining to Sam, because I did not know who it was until I sought it out on the internet.

Now I know, later, when Carol picks up the watch, she recognized it as the watch they gave Sam.

(FYI, in between writing this blog, I just watched The Talking Dead and people in the audience didn't know either, so I feel better)

It seems a little cliche that Glenn is saved at the last second. I would have liked to have seen this done a bit differently, so it was not so much knick-of-time. Also, the double fake-out didn't help either.

This brings us to Carol. Her story arc has been absolutely one of the best. She was an abused wife who could barely speak up for herself and is now such a warrior. She gets kicked out of the group by Rick, who thinks her killing of the group members went to far. Now, Rick is of the same mindset, realizing sometimes you have to make the hard choices. It's also interesting to note here, that Rick's arc is always a bit delayed from others. He comes to conclusions much slower than say Shane, Andrea, or Carol.

Speaking of Rick, I like this new Rick.  He is the guy I would follow. He makes hard choices. He knows how to handle himself in a fight. He is there to protect the group first and foremost. I wouldn't follow a guy, like he was before, who was so wishy-washy he couldn't make a decision because he didn't know if it was right. A guy who would wonder if it was morally okay to kill someone, even though they are trying to kill you.

The world has changed buddy, glad you are all caught up on that.

Which leads me to my next thoughts.

In some regards all the characters on the show have had to change their moral compass. What is too far? What needs to be done? What is, under these new rules, morally okay? No, this isn't the same society, and people will have to be killed, but coming up with reasons for and against are becoming more murky. Remember now, when the Governor killed that leader because he was going to make them all get killed? That was clearly the wrong choice to kill the guy, but taking him down as a leader would have been justified. Sometimes, you have to do what you have to do. Glen, stating that they had to let the people out of the cars was the right thing to do? Yes, that was the right thing to do. Killing the people at Terminus, in my opinion, was the right thing to do. Going back and putting yourself at risk to do so was not. You kill to stay alive. You do not go back and kill people for vengeance. Yet, it's a small, fragile line, because now you have to ask yourself, will those terminus people, shall they live, go on and do that again? That's not okay.

an oldie but a goodie
And finally, Tyreese. He doesn't want to be a killer. Yet, he has to be one. It was pretty awesome/awful to see him get to that conclusion by beating a mad to death with his bare hands.

I'm excited for this season. This is the best premier yet. Like other people, I was super expecting to be at terminus all season. I was very pleased to see us move quickly through that. Not because I didn't think terminus was a good idea, but because in life the terminus would have happened this way. They would be cannibalized quickly, or they would have tried to fight there way out. I liked it.

My The Strain Thoughts blog thanks to GoDaddy coupon 149scott

This blog is made possible thanks to my addiction to television watching, love of scary television shows, and GoDaddy coupon 149scott.

I just finished watching the season finale of The Strain.

First off, I would like to say that I so appreciate the old man telling the little boy what was going on and challenging Eph to tell his son the truth. I mean, come on. How about inserting a little reality into a fake television show. If I had a son Zach's age, I would most certainly tell him everything that is going on in order to protect him. My God, vampires are afoot. It's not time to coddle.

The show kind of goes downhill from there, in my opinion. Eph and Vas find the liar where the Master is hiding out and at least they have a moment of clarity and go back to get the rest. They do, tow Zach along, and enter.

Honestly, why do the not buy more of the ultraviolet lights? My God, it works. They have time. Jeez.

Cut to the chase, they find the Mater and he is all by himself in an attic. Eph, old man, and Annoying Zach break all the windows, an bit too easily a might add. Really? This Master can't fight them better. SO random. Then the Master somehow winds-up outside and everyone just stands there, watching him. Cut his stupid head off people! What the hell!

No, the Master scurries away. God. They all deserve to perish.

After seeing all this, Zach, like an imbecile, fakes a damn asthma attack and the dumb-ass gang goes back to Kelly's house to get more inhalers.

Cut to an utter ridiculousness, Zach is faking to get a photo album. One, that's stupid. Two, that kid is, what, 9? All his pictures would be on a computer, not in a photo album.

Kelly is there, and Eph does not shoot her right off the bat. He does shoot out the glass, but Kelly just lurches away.

The show might be more stupid than the books.

Yet, I watch. I don't know what that says about me.

I hope in season two Zach isn't so doe-eyed. It kills me. Toughen up.

Thank God the show is over this season, it will give me a break from the just plain awfulness of this show. It will come back, again, when absolutely nothing is on to DVR and I will end up DVR'ing it again. Ughh.
