I’ve been playing around with the idea of doing a series of posts that are just free-form ideas as I have ’em. Y’know, while I’m watching something. I would call them
George “What was I thinking?”, and go from there.
Here’s #1. As this is an as-it-happened post, there may be spoilers. I tried to avoid ’em, but I’m sure I’m not that gifted.
Last night, The Walking Dead started up their Winter season, and as always, it delivered. Here’s a peek at my brain cranking at top speed while I was watching The Suicide King. Bearing in mind that top speed for me is a lame hamster on a wheel.
NOTE: all times are original broadcast, Eastern Standard.
* 9:05 – Dixon brothers, back in action!
* 9:06 – That sound you hear is the governors brain snapping. Bye-bye.
* 9:11 – Daryl’s brain: “Rick, I’ve never loved you more than I love you right now.”
* 9:13 – I love you, Tyreese.
* 9:15 – I hope they don’t do the Tyreese/Michonne/Carol thing like the comic. I really like TV!Carol.
* 9:18 – Meryl, you went from me being glad you’re back to me hating you again in less than a minute. That’s gotta be a record, even for you.
* 9:22 – Are they gonna kill her? Did they already? If not, tick tick tick.
* 9:22 – White trash dude, I don’t like you.
* 9:23 – “That’s not what we do.” Tyreese, you’re awesome.
* 9:24 – Work it out Glenn. Work it out.
* 9:26 – I can’t decide if Glenn is a whiny little bitch or a badass.
* 9:27 – Oh look. The pampered folks of Woodbury are freaking. Humanity in action. I’d kick all their asses. Then feel bad later.
* 9:28 – Like nobody saw THIS coming.
* 9:29 – Gotta side with the Governor on that one. Can’t believe I just said that.
* Carl, you badass.
* Oh goddammit. They’re gonna do it. Dammit. DAMMIT.
* 9:37 – Oh Andrea. You poor misguided thang. But haven’t we all made bad decisions during the zombie apocalypse? I should cut her a break. How many good looking dudes are worth boning nowadays?
* 9:39 – White trash dude, I still don’t like you.
* Cute baby alert! And also, Rick brainfuck alert.
* 9:45 – Aaaand we’re looking at a town meeting. But with guarded walls. Expect pitchforks and torches soon y’all.
* 9:46 – And 90 percent of y’all don’t even know how to fire a gun. But hoorays for Woodbury!
* 9:49 – Fuck it all. If they do that messed up love triangle from the comic series, I quit this bitch.
* 9:50 – Aw Hershel, you too are awesome.
* 9:51 – I really like Carl’s animal footprint t-shirt. Just need to put that out there.
* 9:57 – “I’m Tyreese.” yes. Yes you are.
* 9:58 – Agatha Christie reference!!!
* 9:59 – Pull your shit together Rick. It ain’t about you.
* 10:00 – WTF? W THE EVER-LOVING F?
* 10:01 – Does anyone know a good post-apocalypse therapist? Just curious.
