The Rambling Dead: 2×01 “What Lies Ahead″

July 31, 2020

The Rambling Dead shockingly returns for the Plague Times, and your intrepid host is drinking tea in their closet. In the dark. Because this is how we live now. Talking points include: TWD used to be genuinely horror, the gender politics of this show are such garbage, Lori and Andrea and Carol all deserve better, Daryl Dixon Competence Porn, and what actually lies ahead is ROCKS AND TREES AND TREES AND ROCKS AND OCCASIONALLY WATER

Episode 32: Here’s Why I’m Mad

It should come as no surprise to anyone who knows your intrepid host that they're... basically not watching the show anymore. Here, all in one place and in an hour and a half, is why. Talking points include: TIME JUMPS, narrative messiness, what happens when the center does not hold, this should actually be a zombie show with no zombies, Negan and Fanservice Judith, SERIOUSLY THE TIME JUMP WAS SUCH A BAD IDEA, the Season 9 that might have been, and Schrödinger's Beth.

God, where do we even start. In which there is basically a gigantic rant about time jumps. There's a lot of other stuff about a lot of other stuff, but primarily this is ranting about time jumps. You've been warned. Or maybe you're into that, in which case welcome. 

Also there's a brief midterms pep talk because it's my podcast and I do what I want.

November 5, 2018

In which Rick's story comes to an end - or DOES IT? No, it doesn't. We'll get into it. Other talking points include: cliche fake "deaths", evaluating Maggie's decision-making process, the return of Shane the Scumlord, callbacks and choppers, DON'T DEAD OPEN OUTSIDE, Daryl fucking off to Mordor, AMC's blatant cash grabs, more narratology, and why I'm much more solid with regard to Beth being alive.

Also: YOU BETTER EFFING VOTE ISTG

9×04 “The Obliged” - Postmortem

Long story short: Best episode this season. Talking points include: the unsolvable problem of Rick's arc, the joys and sorrows of a rad bromance, Daryl finally talking about his own damn feelings, callbacks and what the hell they're actually about, and a scene with Negan that's legitimately interesting (yes, really).

In which matters continue to improve, ratings not withstanding (yikes). Talking points include: STILL PROBLEMATIC TIME JUMPS, oh god NOT MORE PROBLEMATIC TIME JUMPS, Rick being bad at everything, RICHONNE BABY, Meaningful Literature, A's and B's, the deal with the choppah, whose fault is all of this (it's Rick's), and why Rick isn't actually going to die maybe (and why I still think we might see Beth again).
