Sue Me, I Thought ‘The Walking Dead’ Finale Was Really F*cking Boring

cargo container train car The Walking Dead finale
As anyone with a TV, Facebook or even the most snail-paced internet connection knows – The Walking Dead season 4 finale was on last night.

Considering how uneventful and equally or less exciting than every other non-finale episode, I’m baffled by the amount of websites that called it “shocking,” “exciting” and “brutal.” (Spoilers ahead.)

Carl almost getting raped? – not shocking because we knew it would never happen. Rick being reunited with the gang? – not shocking because we knew it would happen. Rick taking advice from a dead man…? No.
Rick and Daryl season 4 finale still
The real shocker was that nobody died. Not Glenn (dead in the comic) or Maggie (what I expected) or even the new characters, and that the craziest events of the season didn’t occur when the gang ended up trapped in a train car together, but two episodes ago, when crazy-eyed Lizzie exclaimed “Don’t worry, she’ll come back. I didn’t hurt her brain,” after murdering her younger sister.  Continue reading “Sue Me, I Thought ‘The Walking Dead’ Finale Was Really F*cking Boring”

The Walking Dead’s Michonne Talks Zombie Stupidity And The First Lady’s M&M’s

Danai Gurira, who plays Michonne on The Walking Dead (which returns on Sunday, October 14), talked about Michelle Obama and why you shouldn’t be afraid of zombies on Attack of the Show’s Tuesday episode.

“You can call Michonne a badass, I just play one on TV,” she told AOTS host of the week Rob Huebel.

On sword training: “It was intense like right after I got the job it was straight into training with it, you know new muscles you don’t realize you have are now screaming and resenting you.”

On outsmarting the undead: “This is what I’ve learnt from Michonne – zombies are the lesser life form, there’s no reason to run from them, there’s no reason to fear them. They’re not smart, you’re smarter.”

Trailer: ‘The Walking Dead’ Season Three

The Walking Dead returns October 14, and this time Rick and the gang are on the move. Actually on the move, not like last season where they said they were going to be but really they spent the whole time looking for that little girl on a boring farm owned by an eerie old control freak.

There are new character (zombie-beastmaster “Michonne” introduced at the end of last season, and the villainous “Governor”), and the reintroduction of Daryl’s presumed-dead brother, Merle Dixon.

‘Walking Dead’ Writer Robert Kirkman, Not A Fan Of Zombie Fans

The man responsible for The Walking Dead comic book and therefore the show as well told Attack Of The Show host Kevin Pereira in an interview on Wednesday that he isn’t exactly thrilled when his followers dress like the flesheaters he made ever-so-popular.

“They’re nice people, I dunno, they’re somewhat crazy every now and then. They dress up as zombies a lot, that’s a little unsettling to me because people dressed up as zombies still terrify me. I get it, you’re trying to be a zombie, it’s unnerving, please don’t.”

He also said that the comic book industry needs to take itself more seriously in order to be taken seriously by everyone else, specifically the movie industry. On the slow second season of The Walking Dead he says:

There was the switchover from Frank Darabont to Glen Mazzara … I think that Glen Mazzara has a different style…he comes from a run and gun like, let’s blow through as much story as we can and force ourselves to come up with more stuff that will make the show interesting and let’s not hang on any moments let’s pay things off and then move on to the next thing.”
