Anyone who knows me knows I love #TheWalkingDead or #TWD as the trendys who cannot be passed to type call it. However I’m wondering how much time has elapsed from Rick waking up to season six. Carl has gone from infant to pubic so we must assume it’s no less than two years. Assuming it is two years or more… how come they are still finding edible food during shop/home looting. What’s the shelf life of this shit? Does the squirty cheese Michonne has in season five really stay fresh for 24 months. Being a dairy product, I think not.
Or I could just shut up cos I know its only a show! Shouting out for #David Bowie who has sadly passed away aged 69. Why are all the greats being taken from us? 😦
So The Walking Dead returns for its fifth season, and what an amazing opening No Sanctuary was. From the slaughtering of the survivors early on to the reuniting of Carol and Tyrese with the main group it was a biggest televisual ride since the epic prison standoff. Taking me from horrific repulsion to tearful happiness inside an hour, this was packed with the usual amazing visual effects. Carols character really shone in this episode, something she has been doing a lot of in recent times developing into a tough heroine rather than the weedy housewife of Season 1 and 2. Daryl Dixon probably got the best melee zombie kill since Michonne’s wire garrotting routine, which was executed (pardon the pun) with awesome realism.
Deviating quite a lot from the nutters on the farm in the computer game we get a slight glimpse of what drove the ‘Termites’ (Terminus survivors) the way they went. I feel this reason didn’t quite work for me but that’s just a minor personal quibble.
All in all, expectations were high and they cast and crew nailed it once again showing that The Walking Dead is one of or in my eyes, the… best program on the box in recent years and it still deliver. 10/10
