SPOILERS UP TO (and including) THE WALKING DEAD 4x02

In this episode:
  • Discussion of The Walking Dead 4x02 "Infected," including the sickness spreading in the prison, Carol and her new charges Lizzie and Mika, Beth and Michonne's character dynamics, Rick and Carl trying to make their relationship work, and Kareeeeeeeeen.
  • The difficulties of livetweeting a show that has minimal levity.
  • Okay, so whoever's on watch--they have to see someone feeding the zombies, right? ...Right?
  • People are dropping like flies, but what everyone's really broken up about is the pigs.
  • Is Carol being too hard, or is this appropriate zombie apocalypse behavior?
  • Looks like we may discover some interesting bits of Michonne's backstory this season! Hopefully they don't kill her off before we get to find out what it is.
  • Take the lighter moments while you still can, 'cause it's all downhill from here. For example, the adorableness that is Judith Grimes.
  • Humor and horror: two sides of the same coin?
  • This episode meanders a bit. I'm wondering if it's because we only have two days to process each episode before we discuss, whereas with Hannibal, we had almost a week to come up with things to talk about.
  • Highlights from Fio's timestamps for editing this episode:
    • ~29:30 - You mention "A History of Violence" and trail off. This is because I was struck with a brief but vivid fantasy of traversing a zombie apocalypse with Viggo Mortensen that totally derailed every other thought in my head.
    • 42:45 – Pause, also, how did you come up with “not consumption but burnination” and totally miss the opportunity for “not consumption but combustion”
