The Walking Dead Roundtable 4.1: “30 Days Without an Accident”

Hosted by Jeannie Chan

Welcome back to a new season of The Walking Dead! Every week, I will nitpick er, lead a roundtable discussion of the previous Sunday’s episode. (For a recap on the plot of the episode, go here!) We ease into the fourth season of the series with a low body count and a general sense that our post-apocalyptic survivors are holding their own and doing pretttty well? Which, in theory, affords us more time to get to know these people a little better. Carly Mitchell and Kiki Smith join me this week to analyze the new character Bob Stookey and how well the Woodburies are fitting in with the rest of the group.

The Walking Dead Recap 4.1: “30 Days Without An Accident”

And we’re back! Welcome to Season 4 of The Walking Dead recaps! I will try not to be as long-winded and opinionated in summarizing each week’s episode as I tend to get in the TWD Roundtables, but… I can’t make any promises.

The third season finale left me with so many questions and such disappointment about the gaping plot holes, I completely forgot what happened. AMC is kind enough to refresh our memories and let us know that the prison inherited a bunch of Woodburies. Rick finally admitted that he was not fit to be in charge of everything (sort of) and established a council. Also, Carl’s ease with which he killed another human being is something we definitely need to watch out for.

So, everyone… like… I’m annoyed.

Here are the reasons I am annoyed, because I cannot bear to recap this season finale in my typical way, since nothing happened, and everything happened (that I did not want to happen.) As a fan of The Governor arc… I am sad. And annoyed. Don’t forget annoyed.

The Walking Dead Recap 3.14: “Prey”

by Joseph Lamour

You in danger, girl.

After two seasons of being a hotheaded imbecile, I’m happy to report that Andrea is finally kicking ass. Many won’t agree with this assertion, but hell, I think its all happening for her now. Well, it sort of started to, and then it didn’t. I’ll tell you all about it under the cut.

The Walking Dead Recap 3.13: “Arrow On The Doorpost”

Morality: how we retain it, and what we are willing to give up. This week of The Walking Dead highlighted what people are willing to do for themselves in a zombie-ridden world. This episode was necessary in order for the plot to move forward and, as a result, we were subjected to a lot more dialogue than zombie-killing (sigh, again). The tension in the hour didn’t come at all from the undead but from the subtext in each conversation between the living.
