023: The Walking Dead 4x06 "Live Bait" - Brutally Smushed

SPOILERS UP TO (and including) THE WALKING DEAD 4x06 (as well as some mild cast spoilers for the rest of the season)

In this episode:
  • Discussion of The Walking Dead 4x06 "Live Bait," including the Governor's change of heart, the Chamblers, the logistical nightmare that this episode is, David Morrissey's comments on the character from Talking Dead, and how the rest of this half of the season might play out
  • Seriously, the details of this episode raise too many questions. How did they survive so long not knowing how to kill zombies? How did the Governor survive wandering around half-catatonic? Can David Morrissey sing, and if so, could he pull off the climactic finale to the stage musical adaptation of Jekyll & Hyde?
  • We discuss and relive the brutal moments down in the pit. I then proceed to mention how I did not want to relive the brutal moments down in the pit.
  • SUBTLETY. This show has it.
  • Okay, an episode or two devoted to catching us up on what happened with the Governor is cool, but if they draw this out until the show comes back in February, HEADS WILL ROLL.
  • Jeff Goldblum as Dracula. In the words of a great man: "Well... There it is."

  • Judging by his excitement in the note, Fio probably wanted me to bring this timemark of his to your attention:
    • 49:30 – HOLY SHIT what if the governor's leaving the live rats to bait the walkers into the prison so it gets overrun and they eat everyone so him and martinez and the chamblers can roll in and clear out the prison of walkers and take it for themselves?
  • Early on I mistakenly call Meghan "Lilly," which is her mother's name. My bad.
  • Now looking at this podcast episode title, I kind of want to come up with a parody of the song "Totally F***ed" from Spring Awakening called "Brutally Smushed."
  • Wow, my summary of what happens with the love triangle in the TV version of The Stand is STUNNING. "Main character dude," "nerdy dude," and "Molly Ringwald." Clearly the miniseries had a deep and profound effect on me.
