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
Watched the second DVD Jamie had loaned to me. Kick Ass looked less appealing to me going by the cover picture and I have always been a devil for judging a book by its cover. It turned out to be a fun and entertaining film. Every bit as good as the one yesterday. I guess I am becoming as big a nerd as he is. (his words, he won’t mind me saying it)
Ive also added a #Left4Dead review someone has done on the #Zombie page seeing how its become my number 1 video game pass time. That’s that covered so time to start thinking what I can do next. Maybe I can just integrate my other blog into this one as its basically just one page. Would save on domain renewal fees!
Been a rather uneventful weekend due to wet weather but a bit of me time has been rather nice after all that has gone off this week. Have to do a stock and equipment check for Lucy, my boss tomorrow at the BBC radio Lincs building. I like going there its a shame we are going to lose the contract in March. I’ve managed to do a Zombie page here featuring my top 5 favourite Zombie flicks of all time. There are some good reviewers on Youtube so hats off to each of them for letting us share their work with the embed codes. Check it out!
