    On Sunday's Family Guy. The son Chris was attacking Peter with a screwdriver (he thought he was a zombie ... long story)

    And Chris said "I've seen the Walking Dead, I have to kill the brain and then talk about it for an hour"

    LOL

    ...and once again I find myself watching an episode wailing at the television "for the love of God, die already!"

    I refuse to watch this show any more, but Fear the Walking Dead has become pretty good. When they kill main cast members they get on with it, they don’t dwell on it with sentimental clap trap.

    Yeah, last night was excruciatingly long. I always say that the Walking Dead has become one or two major events wrapped in endless talking and walking around - and that's the season. I no longer find myself excited about it. It's more like, "Oh yeah, that's on tonight."

    There's something wrong with me. Again I sat through last night's very special Hallmark channel inspired episode wondering why oh why do I keep watching? I can't stop. I feel a battered wife who keeps returning to her abusive husband.

    Casting notes for major characters:

    Lauren Cohan and Andrew Lincoln are leaving Walking Dead next season. She took a role on an ABC show so she will only film 6 episodes. Norman Reedus got a raise of $20 million and will now be the star.

    Here how I watch Walking Dead last couple of seasons (no joke)

    Fast forward, fast forward, ... oh! some zombies, hit play. Death/kill ... scene over .... Fast forward , fast forward .....

    Walking Dead is like watching 80's porn, minus the happy ending.

    Rick's final episode is tonight.

    It seemed like he died at the end of the last episode, and the preview for this week looked like a lame ass dream/purgatory send-off episode. Hopefully that isn't the case.

    This season has been surprisingly tolerable so far. If tonight's episode goes where I think it's going, it will probably derail again.

    So... what did we think of that? Can a time-jump and a fresh start save The Walking Dead?

    Worth mentioning, in addition to Andrew Lincoln, that was also Lauren Cohan's final episode for the foreseeable future.

    If nobody else is watching this and jumped ship over the past few seasons, I completely understand.

    Yeah, I jumped ship two seasons ago. How did Negan get his? Oh, and how did Rick die?

    Negan is still alive, he's just in a jail cell. Apparently a fate worse than death.

    Rick is also still alive. He was impaled, and he blew up a bridge to save the community, which made them believe he sacrificed himself. Pollyanna McIntosh later found him on the edge of the river, still alive. So he's just separated from the group (apparently AMC will be making separate Rick Grimes movies).

    The previous episode ended with a time jump several years ahead, where Rick Grimes' baby is now a badass teenage zombie killer.

    Eh.

    Seemed like kind of a cheap way to write Rick out of the show without fully committing to it. Now, it's open-ended so he can return in the future if he wants to. I'm more interested in knowing who the helicopter people are, since they've obviously managed to self-sustain through the entire zombie apocalypse with an unending fuel supply.

    Let me put it to you this way: I used to care that TWD was on Sunday nights. This coming Sunday night, the Eagles are playing, and it doesn't even cause me the slightest bit of conflict to watch that over TWD.
