34 - They WENT There

Marty, Olga, and KMO take on the season two finale of The Walking Dead: Beside the Dying Fire. After a long detour from the narrative of the comic, it looks like the show might be getting back on track for season three. With Shane finally out of the picture, Rick gets to embody some darkness of his own and wear every shade of crazy. Glenn and Maggie hold zombies at bay with a bubble of warm, fuzzy love, and T-Dog has enough lines strung together to approximate a conversational exchange with Lori. Oh, Lori, you propel so many sub-plots with your cluelessness and self absorption. Still, lots of zombies in this episode, and the gang has finally left the farm!
Write to us at and let us know what YOU thought of the season finale, and let us know what you think of the podcast too. If you know of some wonderful zombie media, please let us know so we can track it down and consume it like a steaming pile freshly-opened brainsssss.

33 - Penultimate

Episode 33 of the Z-Realm Podcast continues our conversation about AMC's version of The Walking Dead, specifically focusing on episode 12 of season 2 Better Angels. With only one episode remaining in the second season, things have started happening at alarming rate on Hershel's farm. This is a landmark episode in the storyline so far, as some very big events have finally took place that readers of the comics have been waiting a long time for. There are great moments between characters, and some vicious shovel-on-face action with our beloved zombies too. Even T-Dog gets plenty to say in this episode. Listen to Olga, KMO and Marty as they discuss what they liked, disliked, and even hated about this episode ( cough...Lori...cough ) and write to us and let us know what you thought.
Only one episode left, can you guess where the Z-Realm crew is going to be next sunday night!?

32 - Marty's Kryptonite

This week Marty, Olga and KMO gather with the stated purpose of discussing The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 11: Judge, Jury, Executioner, but the real action is in the second half of the show when Marty and Olga recount their recent adventures in New York City. KMO and Olga have just about run out of patience with AMC’s much-hyped and rightly criticized zombie drama, but Marty is still on board with it. Fortunately there are only two more episodes left this season before Rick Grimes and his rag tag (but stiff immaculately coiffed and manicured) band take a long hiatus in which the Z-Realm crew can share some more interesting, gutsy, and varied zombie fare. Hang around for the end of this episode, and hear about encounters with sex workers, burlesque dancers, and Tibetan super heroes.
