Walking Dead – Season 6

Guys. Can I call you guys? We’ve been here through the seasons, pro-tips have been shared, Michonnes loved, Daryls admired, Caroles praised, Ricks both adored and chastised.

And… I can’t think of anything new to say. New nicknames? Ha, always, but nothing about this STORY, this relentlessly dark and–it has to be said–repetitive story. Look, I write stories as my day job. There’s a structure to this. And I know that in television there’s a bigger arc that I’m not privy to. But… I just don’t have it in me to keep recording like a stenographer the continued Bataan Death March in the hopes that there’s going to be something to root for.

There’s nothing to root for that’s new to say. <-- Read that again before you send me hate. There is nothing new to say. No new ideas, no new insights, just more this person is struggling morally, Rick, a glint in his eye and dirt on his brow, shows them that they must kill and push on; after all, he has a baby to raise and a Carl to get in the house. Wait, there is one new thing to say: CARL ORDERED SOMEONE TO GET IN THE HOUSE! Lori must be smiling from heaven. So feel free to use the comment section here to talk amongst yourselves. The FX are still cool, after all. And the normal HDJM rules still apply: don't be a dick, don't spoil, and don't be a dick. (I'm still watching, I just... I give up trying to be funny and insightful. The well has run dry, I'm afraid.)

    I feel like we need to bring it in for a group hug. It’s been a great ride. I guess I’ll be looking for you come GoT time. Thanks for all the insights shared and the references caught. I send a beam of positivity to you by of this comment.

    • *hugs it out like a boss* I’ll still be following along in here, and will probably chat with you guys. But writing up 3000 words about the same thing isn’t helpful for anyone. BUT PLEASE. FEEL FREE TO DISCUSS. I’ll even make individual episode posts for the chatter to stay organized, if y’all would like. <3

      I hate to ask but I can I get in on this hug?!! Please guys..

    Awwwhhh, but also I totally get it. I mean, I don’t feel the same way you do about it all being the same but I do know how it feels to be over writing about a particular thing. I’m sure you started the recaps because there was a joy in it for you, and lady, if that ain’t there anymore I’m not gonna tell you to keep on for my sorry sake. *releases doves and lets solitary tear roll down face*

    • Awww, thanks so much. And the writing about the similar themes is what has become repetitive. I’ll keep posting for you guys to chat about things, though! <3

    I’m in a glass house of emotion!! Okay I totally stole that from Will Ferrell but it still holds true!
    I understand though – I want it to be fun for you and if your not enjoying yourself than there really is no point. I mean there are you legions of fan who admire your writing and such…just kidding!
    Well think about reviewing some other shows, your insight is always welcome and since I just started The Knick and its pretty boss!! Early 1900 century medicine in NY…come on kid..

    I’ll miss your take on this and future seasons. It’s odd, but I find this show much more optimistic and less repetitive than Game Of Thrones. I am also unsullied (or unspoiled,if you will) about the series, but I watch in hope that someday our ragtag group (perhaps Carl’s or Judith’s generation) establishes a society that is functional post-ZA. What we’ve seen thus far have been failed attempts usually at some ‘return to normalcy’, but I think there’s going to have to be an entirely new vision that might not be accessible to a group that lived pre-ZA and has been just surviving since.
