The Walking Dead as an entirety has had a great many ups and downs throughout its three seasons. As season two drew to a close last year, and viewers got their first glimpse of the prison, I, along with countless  of others no doubt, grew increasingly anxious about Rick and the prison, as well as meeting the infamous Governor. However, as season three progressed,  I grew less and less hopeful. “Welcome to the Tombs” was the final nail in the coffin as season three came to close in pitiful fashion, easily making this season the worst thus far.

A Wanted Woman

Well this episode certainly has been a long time coming. Since the beginning of the season, Andrea has continuously, and flawlessly, given in to the Governor and his actions. However, “Prey”, sought to change that with Andrea questioning his motives and his plans for the prison. Yet what should have been a big moment in the series came to feel a little deflated, for Andrea’s decision comes far too late in a season in a season of half-cocked actions and pitiful mistakes.

Thoughts on The Walking Dead: I Ain’t A Judas

A Fools Hope

TWD_GP_311_0921_0286Well this season of the Walking Dead is certainly turning out to be another mixed bag. After a strong first half to the season, these last few weeks have been less than stellar, with the show moving at an alarmingly slow pace, and only a few standout moments. Unfortunately, this week turned out to be no different as the writers choose to focus on Andrea. To be fair I did have hope for her to redeem herself, especially since she was going to the prison for the first time, but alas no as “I Ain’t A Judas” turned out to be the worst episode in a season that began so strongly.
