TWDTT 090 – Evolution (S9E8)

On episode 90 of The Walking Dead Talk Through, Mark and I discuss The Walking Dead Season 9 Episode 8, titled Evolution. Mark liked this one more than I did. I would have appreciated filling in the Michonne vs. everyone else, or so it seems, mystery rather than spending all this time with Henry and the angsty teens. By the way, during the hiatus, sign up to our Facebook group to stay in touch!

TWDTT 083 – A New Beginning (S9E1)

On episode 83 of The Walking Dead Talk Through, Mark and I discuss The Walking Dead Season 9 Episode 1, the season premiere, titled A New Beginning. Mark loved it. I didn’t love it, but I liked it a lot. It was a setup episode, and a bit long, but there wasn’t much I could find fault with, unlike the second half of the Fear season 4.

TWDTT 078 – Still Gotta Mean Something (S8E14)

On episode number 78 of The Walking Dead Talk Through, Mark and I talk through Season 8, Episode 14 of The Walking Dead, which is titled Still Gotta Mean Something. This was another great episode, as it seems all of the second half have been so far!

TWDTT 073 – Honor (S8E9)

On this episode of The Walking Dead Talk Through, I am joined by my new co-host, Mark Kirkman, no relation :-), as we analyze Season 8 Episode 9, titled Honor. Overall, we thought the episode was middle of the road, not bad but not great. We say farewell to Carl, but I was surprised that I didn’t cry.

TWDTT 060 – Bury Me Here (S7E13)

Bury Me Here is the title of the 13th episode of The Walking Dead this season, and it was also what one character wanted, and, in the end, got. That character was Richard, and the one who buried him, both literally and figuratively was Morgan. Although the previews lead us to believe that this was a Carol-centric episode, it was really all about Morgan. Morgan was the one who arguably had the biggest character change this episode, a change that was brought about ultimately by Richard, the one he buried. What a circle of life and death this episode was; and it also brought a little rearranging and mind-changing.

TWDTT 038 – The Same Boat (S6E13)

All of the characters this episode are in The Same Boat, or at least that’s how it seems in the beginning; but by the end of the episode, they are not in the same boat at all. In fact, it appears that our gang has come out on top, but at what cost to Carol and Maggie? They both appear to be in a bad way after their own experiences from the Savior invasion, and we are rewarded with a tender moment for Daryl and Carol (a moment which has been lacking for quite some time we might add!), as well as for Glenn and Maggie. It might not be fair to pick favorites, but I liked the Maggie and Carol power hour storyline way better than Abe’s tripping over his “sack o’ gonads” story. And what a tour de force performance from Alicia Witt, complete with the unglamorous Walking-Dead-style make-under that just helped her be even more amazing!

TWDTT 020 – Season 5 Awesome Sauce

TWDTT 015 – Forget (S5E13)

This week’s episode of The Walking Dead entitled “Forget”, was definitely unforgettable! The ratings were up and they were down, but The Walking Dead was still cable’s number one show for the week. Talking Dead got a boost, too, coming in at the number two slot for cable. If you haven’t ever watched it, you should check it out. As with all shows, not all episodes hit the mark, but, depending on the guests, it can offer some interesting insights. Only three remaining episodes this season, and we are on the edges of our seats!

TWDTT 006 – Consumed (S5E6)

Only two episodes left until the mid-season finale after Sunday’s amazing Daryl and Carol episode. Full of subtlety and substance, season 5 episode 6 of The Walking Dead, Consumed is one of the best episodes of the season, according to one host at least, with only one tiny flaw.
