Rambling TV: Thoughts on The Walking Dead, Better Call Saul + more
Okay Daryl, now you have to initiate the next one.
The Walking Dead did something shocking you guys, fucking SHOCKING. They passed the Bechdel test!
A lot of the episode was focused on Sasha and Maggie and their grief losing their siblings:
Michonne and Carol had this little moment:
Then Rosita and Tara had this one:
Maggie and Carol spoke to each other for the first time since season 2 (though they did share a group scene in S3)
More of my favorites Carol and Michonne
You guys, TWD NEVER lets the females bond or talk to each other! This was progress. And they finally showed weather on this show so that's about time.
Aaron, a popular comic character finally showed up. The only problem I had with this episode was the excessive Daryl man pain Sasha and Maggie being broken up about this makes sense, and to an extent, Daryl's does too. Beth was a kid that he lost because he made a stupid mistake, but did we need that much of him moping? I know the general audience (and AMC) love their brooding cash cow, but this was just too much. At least it was Carol that kind of gave him a pep talk.
Also Judith is turning into Benjamin Button, right? That kid is aging backwards.
Better Call Saul let us see Tuco in all his bat shit glory. I missed that. Saul negotiating broken legs for his clients was priceless. This show also depresses me in a way because damn, do I miss Breaking Bad.
Agent Carter is also got pretty real last week. Peggy's outed to her fellow agents just when she was starting to get their respect. She's about to be interrogated. I just want her to save the day and have all her male colleagues bow down to her greatness.
Also that scene with Angie fake crying and asking Thompson his grandmother's name was the most unintentionally hilarious thing I've seen on TV all week. "Gam Gam."
19 Kids and Counting is back this week, Brace yourselves. Snark is coming!
