Facinating Aida and The Walking Dead ep 15

This is what I am missing tonight!
Fascinating Aida have been going donkey's years and are a real scream
So the prospect of a nice meal out, posh hotel and a few belly laughs would have been lovely
especially as I am presently gargling with TCP and still have a voice that sounds like a cross between Ertha Kitt's rasp and Minnie Mouse' trill

Hey ho...
Oh and I forgot to review episode 15 of The Walking Dead, the episode which sets up the season finale which is due out here in the UK on Monday.

Episode 15 " Try" was an exploration into traumatic stress disorder and the adjustment of veterans of the apocalypse to a more normal life in the Alexandria Safe zone. In this way , there was an obvious reference to the stories of present day servicemen and women trying to make their way post deployment from the killing fields of Iraq.
Rick, Carol and Sasha all were shown to have varying degrees of the disorder, with Rick clearly losing track of objectivity and order and so it is interesting to see " team family" being somewhat fractured with Michonne, Glen , Maggie and even Daryl understanding that " democracy" and peace may be the way forward.......
Not so officer friendly

Of course, in this odd, savage world Rick will be proven right....especially given the fact that a new set of human " badasses" are massing just beyond the gates to the safe zone!
Ps....i did like the sub plot where the ice cold carol is being stalked by 10 year old sam .....children are just drawn to her...... Like a damaged Gladys Ailward

  1. How is it possible that the Walking Dead Season Finale is this weekend? I don't get it. The season just started! Nothing has happened.

    What the heck is going on?

    1. I can believe it cos I didn't really know it had started (or what it is, or was, or will be, had you not mentioned it eh... occasionally. Not enough to make me actually watch it though). Does "The Finale" mean you'll stop talking about it?

  10. You should gargle with dog fanny-wash. At least it would upset others, even if your voice didn't improve. Friendly vet?

  12. I had tickets to see F.A. when they were in Cornwall a few weeks ago, then my friend took ill about an hour before and we didn't go so I sympathise.

    Episode 15 has me looking forward to/dreading the finale, just as it should be. Who will survive, who's for the chop? What next for team Rick? Can I wait or take a sneaky peak at the spoilers.

  13. This is all gobble di gook to me john as I have never even heard of the programme - sorry but sounds the sort of programme that the farmer would drop asleep watching so that means we play Rummikub instead. We spend hours playing it so that he can stay awake until bedtime and thus sleep in the night!

  14. Aaw, sorry you got poorly and couldn't go to see FA.Have you gargled with aspirin? Unless you are allergic to it? I hate having sore throats.

  15. Local honey dear John will heal that throat. Find some. Now about those Walking Dead. I've never watched a single one but Made Men is coming to a close, Nurse Jackie's new Season is not out yet and I just finished watching all the Friends episodes again so I need something new. I believe I am reading for The Dead. Here goes....
