|Daryl & Carol: A brief moment of warmth amid the undead|
Thank goodness for YouTube.
After MIL went to bed ( suitably impressed she was with the sanitary state of the cottage BTW) I found a Spanish version of The Walking Dead Finale and enjoyed a zombie filled 45 minutes three days before it airs in the Uk.
How sad am I?
Now I think I must clarify just why I love this series, right here and right now.....
It is in fact that
the whole thing reminds me of those 1970 disaster movies of my youth......
Sure it's all a bit of a blood fest......and undoubtedly it panders to the teenage viewing public, but the small- group-of-varied-humanity that has to band together to survive the zombie apocalypse is basically a The Towering Inferno tale with undead gore thrown in......it's as simple as that!
And so the finale had poor Andrea ( the civil rights lawyer) seen off by the nerdy but likeable zombiefied Milton,
Whilst the pantomime baddie Governer killed most of his own people in a hissy fit worthy of Joan Crawford
The prison group survived intact until series 4, which was nice........earth mother Carol held asperger Daryl's hand for a couple of seconds ( sweet) Hershel snitched on fledgling psychopath Carl and Rick finally stopped hallucinating ,which was a frigging blessing..........all this mental illness bored me titless
I enjoyed it......even though the whole thing was cut to hell in the editors room......
Hey. Ho......series 4 does not air until the autumn...............you will be zombie free until then..........
