Thinking about The Walking Dead. Daryl takes a swing at Negan in the season 7 premiere, Daryl gets wrestled to the ground, Dwight almost puts a crossbow bolt in his head until Negan has him back off. Negan a comment about Dwight. Negan also makes a comment to Rick about how ‘brave’Daryl is compared to someone he knows. I thought that Negan was taking a jab Rick, but he may have been talking about Dwight. Episode 3 last Sunday, Negan’s […]
Watching the season premiere of TWD again, the repeat ahead of the second episode. Just noticed Abraham “saying goodbye” to Sasha with thier “gang sign” thing. EDIT: ….. and “The Talking Dead” has Chloe Bennet [from Agents of SHIELD] as a guest! Should be fun.
Imaginary Worlds: “Economics of Thrones and Starships” Just catching up with IW podcasts. This one stood out for me. Why? Captain America, “The Walking Dead”, and “Seven Samurai”. Was thinking last weekend, while mowing the lawn (a tedious, futile waste of time and energy; other people find joy/satisfaction in this form of work,I don’t), using the other 3/4 of my mind not involved in the task, to play with a nerdy fanboy question: “Which 3 of the warriors of Akira Kurosawa’s […]

Looking forward to the season premiere of “The Walking Dead” tonight. This post is a “placeholder”. You know, I do love ABC’s [Marvel’s] “Agents of SHIELD”, and for a “traditional broadcast network” ABC has done a good job. Tries to up the ante. But, AMC’s “The Walking Dead”? Haven’t felt like this about a TV show since the modern “Battlestar Galactica”. (Crap. I just realized i missed last Tuesday’s AoS….) EDIT: rewatching the previous season’s cliffhanger. been wondering for awhile […]
“The Walking Dead” TV series. “Who did Negan kill in the season 6 cliffhanger?” I’ve been trying to avoid spoilers and online discussion. After re-watching [EDIT: “re-watch ingredients”?! damn that ‘smartphone’ spellchecker!] the episode last night, and hanging around afterward for “Talking Dead”, can’t help but get back into speculation mode. Back when the cliffhanger firth aired, I remember hinting on this blog that I thought that if they didn’t kill Glenn, they might have killed Maggie. My only reasoning […]
Last night, The Walking Dead. Negan finally makes his debut. We were left with a “cliffhanger ending”: Negan beating one of our intrepid survivors to death, but not knowing who. In the comics, Glen dies. On the show? They don’t exactly follow the comics except in broader strokes. (Seems like every character that dies in the comics will be dead at some point.) My theory: actor who plays Negan had a cameo in “Batman v Superman” as Thomas Wayne, Bruce […]
