For episode 155 of The Walking Dead Talk Through, Dead City Edition, Kyle, LT, and Brian talk through The Walking Dead: Dead City, Season 1, Episode 4, titled Everybody Wins A Prize.

Hey survivors, here is this week’s episode covering The Walking Dead: Dead City Season 1 Episode 4, titled Everybody Wins a Prize. 

So things are starting to heat up with one side, Maggie and the Yorker leftovers, and their plus one, Ginny. Ugh, this non-speaking character is really becoming annoying because what is the point of her? She is just there, doing nothing for the story besides being a distraction. We, as well as you listeners, have the same questions we do. Where does she fit in all this, and will we even see something? If you asked me, they could have just left her out of the whole season. 

Negan is on the other side playing hide and go seek, or tag your it, or whatever with The Croat. We did get more backstory on The Croat and a guest appearance from Simon, which was unexpected but so great to see. It really did make the episode better and made for some fun scenes between him and Negan. Next week looks interesting as well because, at this point, the arena is filled with walkers, and everyone bailed to go somewhere else. 

Anyway, great feedback, as always. We have two more episodes left, so let’s hope they stick the landing and give us some entertaining television.

So Enjoy as Kyle, LT, and Brian discuss this week’s episode, Everybody Wins A Prize.

We want to start offering Patrons a real reason to stay on our Patreon and to get more people to become Patrons. As such, we are going to start experimenting with bringing you some new content that will really make it worth your while to be subscribed.

We are going to try offering Patrons early access to our regular episodes. These versions of the episodes will be less polished than the final version of the podcast, will largely be uncensored, may contain things we fix up in the final version (like when we speak over each other, awkward silences, etc.), content that we remove from the final version and may not have all of the sound effects mixed in properly (and in the case of this episode, doesn’t have the beginning and ending music mixed in at all).
