What a perfect day to jump into and discuss last night's SHOCKING episode of The Walking Dead, right? So what are we waiting for? Hit the jump for some spoiler-ish thoughts from yours truly, or dive right into the comments if you're such a goddamn know-it-all. HAPPY HALLOWEEN, btw.
Okay, I don't have a ton to say here, except for two observations:
1) Look, I know living in a post-zombie apocalypse can be pretty... oh... depressing. BUT SERIOUSLY, SURVIVORS! You need to turn those frowns upside down, take some Prozac (it's in the dead racist's motorcycle), and stop being such goddamn Debby Downers! OF COURSE your son should live, idiot, and OF COURSE blondie fish-mouth won't really kill herself (regardless of what Grandpa Black Eyebrows thinks) because she's just being a selfish drama queen, and is therefore BOOOOORING. Everybody cheer the fuck up, grab a baseball bat and a horse, and let's have a little fun chasing and beheading some fucking zombies. (Just like that hot chick that Glenn is about to bone at any moment.)
2) WTF, SHANE??? This episode would've been a complete boring disaster without Shane and Fatso running through the high school like the kids from The Breakfast Club busting out of detention. (The Shane stuff should NOT have been downgraded to a subplot!) But seriously, WTF, SHANE??? I actually have no problem with you sacrificing Fatso to the zombies, BUT YOU DON'T SHOOT HIM IN THE LEG, AND LET HIM BE EATEN ALIVE! If you're gonna be a dick about it, at least have the decency to cap him in the noggin, and don't let this poor fat sap lie there getting his tubby thighs chewed off by zombies, thinking, "WTF, SHANE???"
So? What would you have done in WTF SHANE'S place??
