021: The Walking Dead 4x04 "Indifference" - The Pancake Conversation

SPOILERS UP TO (and including) THE WALKING DEAD 4x04 (as well as mild spoilers for NBC's DRACULA 1x01 and 1x02)

In this episode:
  • Discussion of The Walking Dead 4x04 "Indifference," including the continuing adventures of Team Badass Beyond, Rick's and Carol's combating philosophies, red shirt hippies, Bob and going back to the drink, and trying to maintain your humanity in the face of adversity.
  • Michonne continues to be such an awesome character this season.
  • How does Carol really characterize her relationship with Lizzie and Mika?
  • Did Rick make the right decision sending Carol away?
  • All of the acting on this show--all of the awards.
  • Ian gets a little deep. He also invokes Animorphs and The Dark Knight in his attempt to connect ALL THE THINGS.
  • Also, at 58:52, we do a short "Dracula-Cast" discussion of the first couple of episodes of NBC's Dracula.
  • Ian says "that tattoo was on the girl's arm." Pretty sure it was actually her leg.
  • This is a little ambiguous because of some oddly phrased stuff we cut, but when Ian asks "Were you expecting him to find booze in there?" and Fio replies "Of course not" we weren't discussing Daryl finding booze in Bob's bag, because... duh. We were talking about Bob finding booze in the veterinary hospital.
  • Fio "wanted to make a clear distinction that even if Rick is reminiscing, this is firmly not the same Rick who was 6th Sensing it up last season, this is a healthier response and doesn't reek of denial the way his visions of Lori did last season."
  • Btw, anyone want to join my new band, "Visions of Lori"?
  • During our Dracula discussion, Fio accidentally says John Rhys-Davies instead of Jonathan Rhys Meyers. An easy mistake.
  • More highlights from Fio's timestamps:
    • 41:35 – Here you say “Zombie Apallalypse” instead of “Zombie Apocalypse.” It can't get cut out, because your point wouldn't make sense, I just thought it was funny.
    • 41:30 – 44:29 – While you're going on your Animorphs spiel (there aren't really any necessary cuts that stand out), let me ask, have you heard the new AFI album yet? It's really good. Like, really good.
    • 1:01:25 – I totally lost track of what I was saying and fuck up the way I used the word broach. My soul hurts now.
    • 1:07:50 – I totally fuck up and confuse Jonathan Rhys Meyers with John Rhys-Davies and I'm furious with myself. That would have made a really interesting series, though.
