Rambling TV: Thoughts on The Walking Dead, Fargo, and Agents of SHIELD

Rambling TV is a series where I ramble incoherently about the things I watched on TV for the week.

The Walking Dead

Let's get this out of the way: Glenn's not dead. That's massive trolling from the powers that be. The walkers were clearly ripping Nicholas' body apart on top of Glenn. Intestines don't come out of chests. I think he'll crawl under the dumpster (ala Rick in S1, when they first met. Glenn even called Rick "dumbass" again in this episode like he did in 101) Not to mention *SPOILER - HIGHLIGHT FOR IT* Glenn has been spotted filming consistently. There's pictures of him in September, even one released by Entertainment Tonight when Jesus' actor was cast. He was spotted filming again this week. They're on episode 14. Rest easy, Glenn fans. *END SPOILER*

I want to talk about Michonne, who was the stand out for me. I love her character and I'm so happy they gave her some depth. She was so caring with David, yet she had her same "no bullshit" stance with their mission. Her determination and compassion were my favorite part of the episode. I loved her conversation with David about his wife Betsy. I can't help but think that Michonne was thinking of Rick during that conversation. Much like Daryl was probably thinking of Carol when he considered going back. Those felt like little nods to me.

Now we have to sit through a 90 minute episode of Morgan while this one ended on a massive cliffhanger. I like Morgan, but the last few seasons of this show, episode 4 has killed the momentum. I'm afraid it will do it again. 

Fargo

The biggest question by far on this week's episode of Fargo - Was Jesse Plemmons wearing a prosthetic belly? He has to be. Either that or he has the most symmetrical man boobs I've ever seen. 

I was right, Jeffrey Donovan can't control his accent. There were a few moments where it's like he thought he was supposed to be from the Midwest and used a southern drawl instead. How does this guy keep getting work where he has to use a different accent? 

Lou's story is by far my favorite. Peggy makes me nervous. I'm afraid she's going to (politely) murder someone else. 

Agents of SHIELD

Another episode of cock blocking the FitzSimmons ship, hopefully the pay off is worth it next week.

Then there's Ward. People still see this asshole as some misunderstood bad boy that can be redeemed, but he can't. Especially after this week. He needs to feel the wrath of May after murdering her ex, and she better take that out on him and not Hunter, who made the right call. The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, and yes Hunter has a chip over what Ward did to Bobbi last season, but he was still right.

  1. Haha! I feel like I need to rewatch that episode of Fargo now to inspect Jesse's manboobs! I'm still really enjoying this series, but I miss Billy Bob Thornton so much :(

    1. It really has to be fake. I do miss the S1 cast too. Especially Colin Hanks and Allison Tolman.

  3. I was wondering about Plemmons' weight too! I read an interview in which he admitted to packing on some serious weight, but that is some serious fuckin' weight there. Your line about his man boobs made me laugh out loud.

    1. lol thanks. I really think that belly had to be fake though. It didn't look doughy enough.

  4. Sunday night was a lot of in terms of my head just exploding from Glenn's possible death. I don't read look out for spoilers, so it was a doozy. Reasoning has seemed to slow everyone and realize that Glenn is still live. PHEW. I must admit I'm not a big fan of Michonne, but Danai's scenes were great this week.
