  • The Other Side

    The Other Side

    The introduction of the Hilltop on The Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 11 opened the doors to a variety of possibilities, especially delving into various new communities.

    And while Jesus was a fantastic addition to the series, I’ve found myself enjoying the stories taking place within the Hilltop less and less.

    Sure, there have been some solid moments, and seeing Rick reunite with Daryl on The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 8 at the Hilltop is a great example.

    But those two characters aren’t really the “regulars” at the Hilltop, so it almost feels like a cheat of an example.

    I just haven’t really cared about the likes of Gregory, Maggie, Sasha or Enid in the same way that I’ve been invested in say Morgan, Carol, Ezekiel or even Benjamin over at the Kingdom.

    And unfortunately, The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 14 focused pretty solely on those Hilltop characters.

    I hoped things might play out differently, but ult...


  • The Well

    The Well

    If The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 1 was about hopelessness and breaking down the characters, then The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 2 was all about hope and allowing the characters to see that there is still good in the world.

    Though as bright and cheery as Ezekiel and his people are, not even they have been able to rid themselves of the darkness that is Negan and the Saviors. Yet.

    I smell a team-up between Alexandria and the Kingdom...

    After the brutality and gruesomeness of the premiere, it was weird picking things up in such a positive setting.

    New characters with friendly demeanors, twinkling wind chimes, sunshine and cobbler, and a kind leader felt surreal. Even the actual brightness of the episode was a stark contrast to the dark setting Rick and company were trapped in.

    It was easy to be unsettled by the Kingdom, but more because of how much of a fantasy land it seemed. How can you take seriously a “king” that...


  • The Cell

    The Cell

    Negan is in charge.

    That much was made clear on The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 1, but The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 3 explored his leadership over his Saviors and how he gets them to follow his command.

    Or more precisely, how Dwight has fallen in line and Daryl refuses to get on board.

    Jeffrey Dean Morgan was electrifying in his scenes, and he continues to make Negan such a charming yet terrifying new villain for the series.

    Even when Negan is doing something “nice,” there’s always a dark hint of menace behind it and the prospect of getting up close and personal with Lucille.

    I know Ezekiel talked about how people want to follow a leader on The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 2, but sometimes it’s crazy to think that so many people are willing to do the bidding of such a mad man as they are for one who is good.

    Exploring the different paths Dwight and Daryl were taking under Negan’s thumb was interesting...

    Did you forget Negan was in charge?

    Probably not, but the leader of the Saviors made sure Rick and his crew didn’t forget by making a personal visit to Alexandria on The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 4.

    And this was a tense 90-minute episode that flew by in gripping fashion.

    It’s usually pretty fun to get a little extra time added to an episode, meaning more of the series’ particular world and more time with the characters.

    But The Walking Dead has used the 90-minute episode before, and its last two times (The Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 4 and The Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 16) didn’t need the extra minutes. They probably would have worked just fine with the regular run time.

    I can’t say that this particular episode required more time either, but it never really dragged, leaving the audience in suspense as to what was going to happen during Negan’s tour of Alexandria.

    Jeffrey Dean Morgan continued to be ...


  • Go Getters

    Go Getters

    The Saviors don't just favor Alexandria when it comes to dropping in unannounced.

    The Hilltop received that special surprise on The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 5, but the hour unfortunately lacked the intensity and danger when Negan and his crew showed up on The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 4.

    And by the end of the hour, I really wished that we had either skipped through this episode or followed Rick and Aaron when they decided to go on their little expedition.

    It was certainly important to show how much power and control the Saviors have over various communities, and the way the Hilltop handled the Saviors was vastly different than Alexandria.

    So it made sense that Negan would show up at Alexandria, to double-check to make sure his message to Rick was clear, but not show up at the Hilltop, a community that has been pretty subservient so far.

    And Negan's henchman Simon taking the lead role for the Saviors during the ...


  • Swear


    It's a bit surprising that The Walking Dead would put an entire episode on the shoulders of two characters that have played relatively minor roles on the series so far.

    Ultimately, it was mostly Tara's journey to discovery a new community with ties to Negan, but Heath did get to play a small part.

    It's certainly good to see the series trying to give characters outside of the main crew of Rick and company some time to shine, but where The Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 5 felt more like a waste of time, The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 6 brought something new to the table.

    There was a real sense of mystery surrounding some of the new characters and community Tara came across. And the fact that it was a society of only women, which was eventually answered as to why, was intriguing.

    At the same time, a change of scenery from the constant trees and woods the survivors normally traipse through for some crashing waves and a beach was rat...


  • Sing Me a Song

    Sing Me a Song

    Another extended episode of The Walking Dead?

    Granted the 90-minute episode without commercials boils down to about an hour of actual show, which is similar to the length of, say, an HBO episode, but the more these longer The Walking Dead episodes air, the less it seems necessary

    If these episodes used that extra time to really pack in riveting moments and move the narrative along, then sure; but most of them seem like wasted opportunities that should have just stuck to the regular runtime.

    And unfortunately, The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 7 didn't break from the pack to deliver some amazing chapter worthy of that extra time.

    Looking back to the last time an extended episode involved Negan, The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 4, I enjoyed it and didn't really notice the length of the episode. At the same time, it probably could have stayed within the normal runtime and still delivered in the same way.

    But we were getti...


  • New Best Friends

    New Best Friends

    Getting surrounded, and most assuredly without any real leverage, and then managing to pull out a deal a new survivor group would agree to?

    Talk about Rick pulling out a miracle play on The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 10.

    Looks like he’s got his army to help face off against Negan. At least a good start of it.

    Clearly, Rick getting help was the main movement of story in the episode, and while kudos to him for making the deal and getting out alive, it all felt a little contrived in getting there.

    Firstly, this group of “takers” was just plain weird. They didn’t feel like real people. The dialogue felt so awkward and unnatural.

    At least with the other groups that the Alexandria people have encountered, whatever their personalities, they have felt like people you would actually come across.

    The takers felt like they had seen “Mad Max” or something and had never lived in the real world before the zombie apocaly...


  • Hostiles and Calamities

    Hostiles and Calamities

    The war with Negan is coming… just not quite yet.

    The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 11 took time to catch viewers up on what’s been going on at the Sanctuary since Daryl’s escape and Eugene was brought back from Alexandria.

    Ultimately, it was a character piece focusing on Dwight and Eugene and the way they follow Negan’s rule, even if they aren’t fully on board with his leadership and decisions.

    Truthfully, there was something fascinating in getting to see Eugene’s experience when comparing it to Daryl’s torturous stay at the compound.

    The callback to that “Easy Street” song was humorous because of the repetitive nature in which it was used before, but this go around it really did sort of highlight the easy street that Eugene was getting.

    Eugene wasn’t being tortured. He was getting to stay in a room, play video games, eat pickles, and pretty much do what he wanted to.

    At the same time, Daryl was defiant to t...


  • Say Yes

    Say Yes

    Talk about Rick and Michonne hitting the scavenging jackpot on The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 12.

    Though, is anyone else surprised that all the food, supplies and guns the two found hadn’t already been discovered by anyone else in all this time?

    It certainly felt rather convenient regarding their specific needs of the moment.

    Funny enough, with all that luck granted upon the leader of Alexandria and the sword master, their efforts couldn’t even get the trash people to agree to help fight Negan yet.

    Turns out, aside from still speaking like a bunch of weirdos not living in the same universe as the other characters on this show, they need more guns. Then they will help fight.

    Does Jadis know that there’s still three episodes until The Walking Dead Season 7 finale? Is that why she’s delaying things?

    Seriously, though, with all those guns just handed over, why would the trash people not just use them to ...
