Maybe he was mesmerized, thinking "This shit can't be for real" in that 1950's era "Leave it to Beaver" kid's bedroom with the model planes hanging from the ceiling and the globes and pictures of doggies on the wall. Do the writers here have no access to the real world?

God, yes! Epic for sure, and these recaps were often the only reason I would continue watching a show after it descended into the crapper. Hilarious.

Or maybe she'll step on a rusty nail Morgan left lying around after constructing his jail cell and get tetanus. Hey, there's a good tactic for Rick to use. Smuggle rusty nails into Negan's bedroom so he can step on them and get - lockjaw!

I admit that I've often found myself contemplating how often they actually leave the basements in which they surely must be dwelling, especially given the way they attempt to write adult relationships.  Ye gads.  ***insert eye roll here***

Seriously, the last character before Tyreese to be so completely zoned out at least tried to kill a baby while doing it (Lizzie says hi).

Which is why JSS was extra funny. Let Jessie show you how to use scissors correctly, Beth.

The giggles this post gave me were like hugs from sweet baby Jaysus...Grazi!!!

CDB is not the authority on how to survive the ZA, they're the cautionary tale of what happens when a bunch of idiots who have gathered and lost innumerable people in their group show up and insist that they're the ones who know how to survive.

Glenn: "We know what we're doing." Hmm, okay.

This episode was painful to watch.  And not in a good way.

I absolutely loathe Tara and can't stand the sight of her slack-jawed face.  Please make her death slow and agonizing.

Enid may not be able to act,  but I really love the fact that she shares her name with SNL's Church Lady.  I've already informed Mr. pig that our next female pet will be named Enid.  Hell - maybe our next male pet if I feel like it.

He was being ironic. He had to be.

Thank you for the well wishes.

For the record, I watched the most recent episodes of The Walking Dead in the hospital(s) as they aired, while very much feeling like one of the zombies...an interesting perspective.

I think the audience has grown tired of the ZA being run by a showrunner who is essentially a 12 year old boy.  Enough of "Zombies everywhere!  Horrific ways to die!  No hope, man!  One Big Bad after another!  Look, that guy smashes people for fun and talks about farts and dicks a lot!  Cool!  Biggest asshole wins!"

By this point the ZA is about three or four years in.  The majority of the zombies should have dissolved by now, and everyone seems to know that anyone who dies needs to have their brain damaged to prevent them from turning.  Although there would certainly be zombies, and people should still be looking out for them, there shouldn't be as many as the show has. 

Enough of CDB rolling up onto an established community and promptly causing everyone to die.  CDB is not the authority on how to survive the ZA, they're the cautionary tale of what happens when a bunch of idiots who have gathered and lost innumerable people in their group show up and insist that they're the ones who know how to survive.  Frankly, a working community should shoot them on sight. 

Agreed. I get the feeling that the goal of each episode is to show Zombies in a new situation. Last week , it was zombies in a swamp. Why would here be so many zombies in a swamp? Why would anyone take the risk of walking through a swamp when a zombie could bite you from underwater?

Doesn't anyone remember what happened when they went to look for canned food near Father Gabriel's church. Someone got bit in the flooded basement & ended up being kidnapped by Terminus group.

Why haven't the Saviors looked at a phone book for a Costco or Walmart warehouse to look for supplies. They seem to have lookouts everywhere, so why not be focused on getting supplies. I doubt every warehouse is empty of supplies.

It's a frustrating show to watch.

Last week I wasn't all that excited to watch this so I waited. Then this week I figured I should watch it so I'm not too far behind.

This used to be a show that I Could. Not. Miss.

You guys...  Half way through I looked at my husband and said, "You know, I wouldn't care if you turned this off right now and we just never watched this again."  He replied, "Go ahead."

Yep yep yep. They had Tyreese go full lunatic on Rick and nearly on Carol because his little lap-sitting squeeze of a few minutes croaked which was way more traumatic than Carol losing her only child and Rick having his wife eaten by a walker.

Personally, I don't give a shit what happens to anyone left on this show and that includes Carol and Michonne, although perhaps I can tolerate Carol a little more lately now that her every scene doesn't include tears squirting and dripping down her face. Of all the people I don't care about, Tara, who apparently couldn't hit the ground if she jumped off a roof, and Dwight have to be at the top of the list so when we got their Big Emotional Segment I was yelling, "OH FFS - no!" I was hoping some alligators would appear in that itty-bitty but lethal swamp and eat both of them. Yes, I know there are no alligators in VA, but that would be just as realistic as an Attack Tiger.

I think I'm just watching to see them all die, and of course for the awesome and hilarious snark here.

Tyreese going full on dumbass angry man mode was stupid cause we didn't see the relationship he had with whatever her name was. After getting rid of Governor next episode adapting to life in prison and she dies just as soon as she pops up and Tyreese is acting all stank. You can understand Rick's grief over Lori because they been together for years and before the outbreak, can understand Maggie's grief or little from what we seen because her & Glenn were together since season 2, even Sasha's grief cause she lost Tyreese and Bob within a very short time span. I even felt bad for Carol when children kept dying around her or kids wanting to be near her (Sophia, Lizzie, Mika, Benjamin, Sam).  

Denise & Tara, no because their relationship wasn't even worth a buck and a quarter. Reading Tara getting on her high horse on Dwight is just ridiculous. Especially when Dwight was at Alexandria before and Tara was yelling at Daryl to kill Dwight like there was something wrong with her doing it. Tara doesn't want to get her hands dirty even when they captured Saviors and whining to Jesus about it not being right and they should kill them but she never pulled the trigger to shoot the Saviors. Why didn't she? Afraid Jesus was gonna kick her ass? Even when she was with the Governor and they were shooting the prison Tara's scary ass hid behind a vehicle.  

Now if Rick & Co. accepted her useless ass in the group despite being with the Governor then she can at least give Dwight the benefit of the doubt.

The best reaction to someone's bf/gf dying is Beth. Her bf died in the store and she was all "whatever" about it. She didn't do that woe is me crap.

Only people I care about now are Michonne & Aaron. Ezekiel a little bit. I would say Rick but after he went to GPK again after they betrayed him the first time only to be betrayed a 2nd time by them proves he's being stupid and plus had a chance to kill Negan numerous times and doesn't do anything. How many times have Rick told Negan that he was going to kill him? 700?

Many, by various means - up close, at a distance, by proxy (Carl) and over the phone. I'm sure there will be more.

(Yeah, I know I have too much time on my hands)

Enid is a lovely name, but my next pet (please don't find me, please don't find me - I'll be paying off credit card vet bills for eternity!) shall be named Pookie.

I used to think having Liam Neeson's "Taken" telephone monologue on my answering machine would be ever so cool; now I just want Rick's "I'm gonna kill you" empty threat (I've mellowed with age).

Oh, wow. Can we do that? I've only had a cell phone for year or so. I would love that on my phone too! Can we include "Not today. Not tomorrow. Not next year" on it??

Sure, we can include that, but I want him to actually record it to my phone, preferably on the Graham Norton show, just like Liam Neeson did for some lucky fucking fan that could afford to go there.  ;-)

But seriously, if there isn't an "App" for that already, I want a royalty for famous phone answering threats.
