TWDTT 004 – Slabtown (S5E4)
Talking Through Slabtown
While our love affair with The Walking Dead never ends, it can wax and wane. After three powerful episodes, we came down off our high with the fourth episode of season 5, Slabtown. This Beth-centric episode didn’t pack quite the same punch, but it certainly did not lack for creepy. The mystery of what happened to Beth is finally divulged, and we are very glad it did not drag out for the whole first half of the season. (Cough cough Sophia! cough) This episode can most definitely be labeled a filler episode, but the reveal at the end makes for an exciting setup!
Grady Memorial Hospital
In this episode, we talk about what is going on with Grady Memorial Hospital and how we think Beth came to be there. We discuss the dynamics of the residents and how their post-apocalyptic survival is similar to other groups we’ve seen and how it differs. And of course, we talk about the ratings this week, and how they stacked up against baseball and football. In other news, it seems both red and blue can agree that The Walking Dead is an awesome show!
Ratings are up
