Greetings, Evil Geeks! The Walking Dead came back that week, signaling what’s basically the halfway point of Winter. We’re almost out of the woods with snow and ice season, but of course the return of our favorite zombie soap opera also means that emotional trauma season is just getting underway. Between Beth’s tragic death in the mid-season finale and Tyreese’s also tragic death last week, the group, as well as the viewers are mentally worn down with anguish. Two characters who arguably could be called the heart of the group of survivors have been brutally ripped away. Can Rick and the others recover from this devastating blow?
It’s that time of year again, Evil Geeks. The air gets a little crisper. The days get a little shorter. The dead start to walk across our TV screens again. The Walking Dead came back this week in full force, kicking off what is already looking to be a crazy season 5. What’s the best way for a show that can at times slow down to a glacial pace in terms of storytelling? Why with 1 full hour of zombie killing action, big ass explosions, and a healthy dose of some sweet, sweet fan service!
Here we find ourselves Evil Geeks, at the end of another season of our favorite zombie infestation! Last week we got a little bit of happiness in our sadness stew, so naturally we’re expecting a heaping scoop of sorrow in the season 4 finale of The Walking Dead. Will a newly reunited Glen and Maggie be torn apart by death? Would Tyreese decide that maybe he wasn’t as forgiving of Carol as he thought he was? Will Carl finally emo somebody to death! So many questions for such a small hour! Let’s get to it!
Well Evil Geeks, after an episode like last week’s, we definitely need a little bit of an emotional break. Being this late in the season though, of course The Walking Dead isn’t going to stop bombarding us with the feels, but luckily this week we get a happy ending as opposed to the whiskey bottle draining ending that we (and Lizzy of course) met last week. Seriously, sales of Prozac must have skyrocketed this week after that depression fest. Onward and upward zombie heads!
It is that time again Evil Geeks. That time when the freely roaming undead get nice and corralled, it’s Zombie Round Up time! Last week gave us a deep character study centered around Darryl and Beth. Each of them kind of hit their respective rock bottoms, then decided that the past was exactly that; in the past. After a quick spiritual dose of Redneck B Gone, each of them symbolically said good-bye to their old selves and embraced the new apocalypse-ready survivors that they’ve become. After focusing on only those two for the whole episode, you can’t help but wonder what about the rest of the scattered group? We haven’t seen some of them in a while, so it’s definitely time to check back in!
