Episode 117 - On Easy Street

Due to vacations, jobs, and a myriad range of other obstacles, we have not been able to return to the Z-Realm for a few weeks, but we are back to catch up on things now on a day when the thing we find ourselves MOST thankful for is that Trump is not yet actually in the oval office here in the US.  We had three episodes of AMC's The Walking Dead to talk about this time, and we chew in to them a little, enjoying some of the turns but unfortunately, the 5th episode left us with a bitter taste in our mouths that only an additional slice of pumpkin pie could dislodge. Please let us know what you thought of the show by sending messages to or by posting a message on our Facebook page.

  1. I really enjoyed these episodes! Just when you think Daryl's been put on the bus, not seeing that guy any time soon, entire Daryl episode. And a good one, too.

    You're right that the most recent one lagged a bit compared to the other two, but I enjoyed it anyways. Partly because it makes sense to get in another "slow" episode, and there needs to be a little time for exposition as everyone piles onto the let's kill Negan train. Wasn't the best episode, but it still had some really good bits.

    Speaking of which, that scene where Negan shows up outside Alexandria and is standing right outside the gate with just his trusty bat was surprising in how nobody decides to just shoot him right then. Failing to act immediately ensures their ability to take on the Saviors will only get worse. But no one says "just kill Negan and the Saviors will fall apart". I guess they already did that once and now that they've met the real Negan they're not sure it will work. Which I guess is the whole point of Negan's "everyone is Negan" schtick. Are the Saviors being held together by this one guy or is it a Dread Pirate Roberts sort of thing? Is Negan even the original Negan?
