Addendum: Yesterday’s Walking Dead Post

Yesterday's Walking Dead post came from the seat of my pants, especially the prediction I made at around noon yesterday about Enid. First off, kudos to the writers deciding to get the question out of the way with Glenn's resourcefulness once again saving the say. We also got the guy beloved by viewers, the man …

Glen Rhee, or The Walking Dead’s Version of The Dead Parrot Sketch

Ever watch Monty Python's classic dead parrot sketch? Here's a refresher: https://youtu.be/4vuW6tQ0218 The current debate about whether Glenn Rhee, former pizza delivery guy, husband of Maggie, expectant father, reminds me of this sketch.

Watching The Walking Dead as people try to outwit humans, …

Missing My Zombies

I realize keeping geeky things to just Midweek Geekiness will not happen. It's another reason I like goals not rigid resolutions. If things don't work out, then I remain flexible to change. I think flexibility will benefit me in a zombie apocalypse. I will not pine for the way things used to be, and simply embrace things …

The Outlandish Sunday of The Walking Dead

After Thanksgiving with the family, I headed over to S's place to watch the season première of The Walking Dead. It's safe to say what I will say next, and it applies to Outlander, will contain spoilers for both shows. Why write about both? On one hand, it represents two sides of my tastes. I …
