Sometimes, I can't quite tell if an episode of "The Walking Dead" is kind of slow, or if I'm just completely worn out from a weekend of existence. Sunday night's new episode, "Alone", had me dozing off and drooling in my lap a bit. Maybe it was because it was the second straight episode without main protagonist Rick Grimes, or because no main characters were killed off (I know that sounds ridiculous, but this is "The Walking Dead'), or because the characters are still just aimlessly floating around, slowly drifting in the general direction of this mysterious "Terminus".
Would you care for some Crazy Cheese? Why yes, yes I would. But I would also be OK with some Kraft Easy Cheese. On Sunday night's episode of "The Walking Dead" on AMC, Michonne tempts Carl with a can of aerosol spray cheese, referring to it as Crazy Cheese. Carl was all upset about the loss of younger sister Judith, and Michonne was trying to lighten his mood by spraying processed cheese product all in her mouth snd groaning like a zombie. It was a pretty good bit, I thought, and I would have cracked up if I was Carl. I get that he's going through his "Slipknot" phase but hey Carl, life sucks for everyone right now, why you gotta make it worse by acting like a dick?
Well, if you were one of those "Walking Dead" fans who was wondering what was going on with the Governor, then Sunday night's episode - "Live Bait" - was just what you were waiting for! This was one of those episodes that really focused on one character for the entire 60 minutes, and I'm OK with that. In fact, I think this was one of the strongest episodes of the season, if not the series. The episode picks up with the Governor and his two loyal cronies departing the crime scene where he shot up a lot of faceless Woodburians. Apparently those three hung out in some flimsy self-standing tents for a little while on an open lot like some losers at Coachella before Martinez and Shumpert ditched the Governor.
