Walking Dead

walking dead dead weight

Hello out there in Nerd Reader land.  Once again the lovely Regina will be taking the week off which leaves you in my (capable?) hands as far as The Walking Dead review goes.  And while I’ve really been enjoying the season thus far, this week is when I just had to shrug my shoulders and say to myself “Did I even really need to watch any of that?”  One of the hallmarks of good writing is that every moment is essential, but with two episodes of The Governor wandering about and doing very little, even my patience has worn somewhat thin.  Read on to hear me bitch and moan.

The Walking Dead has gone through its share of showrunners since the series first aired back in 2010.  First we had Frank Darabont, then came Glen Mazzara and now, with season four, the man I like to refer to as “The Badass”, Scott Gimple.  But not all of these transitions came easy.  With producers looking to rake in as much money as they can, they’re prone to making decisions that aren’t necessarily designed to improve the show as much as improve their bank accounts.  Thus, Frank Darabont met his showrunning end after the very first season.  In a recent interview, he lets loose and fires a few bullets back at the powers-that-be.

Hello out there in Nerd Reader Land, my name is Jason and I will be taking over for Regina this week as your The Walking Dead reviewer.  If you happen to be a hater of the new season, I suggest you find some reviewer with more negative opinions of the show, as I am currently working under the firm belief that this is the season that shows what The Walking Dead should have always been.  If you are in the same fanboy boat as me, then please read on and enjoy my examination of ‘Live Bait‘, the latest installment of the AMC zombie apocalypse.

governor

If you’ve been watching The Walking Dead this season, you may have noticed a distinct lack of The Governor.  And while many of us may not give a rat’s ass that he’s not around (let’s face it, he was getting kind of annoying), there are still the questions of where he went, whether or not he’s going to be back and exactly why he hasn’t been around.  Now, Robert Kirkman has stepped forward to answer those questions.  See what he had to say below.
