Did we really need this episode?

Well if you haven’t already started the podcast yet just know this one is marked explicit. There were no more F’s to give by the time we finished. This episode was just too F’ing slow. And really? Did we need another episode about Carol and Daryl? I mean where’s Maggie? Or Rosita? I mean it was nice to see Jerry but they could have given us more. While it was not all doom and gloom and we understand that Covid made its mark on production, but this just wasn’t great. And the ratings, while have been going down for some time, was the lowest. Ever. And I don’t blame anyone. We did get good feedback and the listeners did make some good points. And we do agree with them, but just want good TWD content and not just filler, just because. Next week does look better. And I hope it delivers. With that I hope you enjoy our discussion, that is not just all bad, just hard to cover, this time around.
