I Will Never Visit Hemlock Grove

In Television on April 20, 2013 at 9:18 am


For those of you who don’t know what “Hemlock Grove” is of what I am even talking about, it is a new Netflix original series that is poised to disrupt basic cable and show humanity that streaming is where it’s at. Well not really. It isn’t “House of Cards” that is for certain.

“Hemlock Grove”, directed by Eli Roth, tells the story of a quaint town that has a certain problem. This problem consists of a murdered girl and vampires, werewolves, and angels, possibly? I’m only two episodes in so I’m not sure as to how more fantastical this show gets. Does this sound familiar? “True Blood” anyone? The television and movie market has been saturated with vampires, werewolves, and other things that go bump in the night so it’s important that “Hemlock Grove” set itself apart from the rest and other then its goriness, it really doesn’t do that.

The story unfolds with Peter (Landon Liboiron) and his mother Lynda (Lili Taylor) come to Hemlock Grove shortly before the girl is murdered. They are gypsies and instantly suspects because of it. Also, everyone thinks Peter is a werewolf. Because of this Roman (Bill Skarsgard, of the acting family that is the Skarsgards) is instantly fascinated with Peter and attempts to befriend him despite the way his classmates view him. Did I mention that this all revolves around high school? Oh well it does and this show kind of suffers for it. Roman’s mother Olivia (Famkre Janssen) also makes appearances throughout the show to ave sex with someone and to brood. While his cousin Letha, (Penelope Mitchell) what a terrible name, also appears for a purposes unknown and she believes that she may have had sex with an angel. Awesome, did you get all that?

The pluses about this show: The gore is pretty sweet. The story intrigues me because I really want to find out who these people are and what their deal is. Why are they so strange? Why does Olivia have marks on her back? What are the Godfreys really up to? So I’m going to keep watching because I’m interested and the nice thing about Netflix is that I can keep watching.

The minuses: This story line is unoriginal and suffers for it annnnnd the acting and the script is God awful. There was a line that I heard in which Lynda said, “I hope those balls know what they are doing”. She was talking to her son when she said this. What? Who wrote that? Roman also said something like, “I can be sensitive…with like girls….and stuff”. What? And their acting just consists of brooding and having sex with each other. I can’t seem to remember a memorable moment within this show that could demonstrate how good one actor/actress is, because a scene such as that one does not exist.

Verdict: As of Episode 2, I am going to continue watching this show. I already have Netflix and I mean it’s on there, so why not. However, if you don’t have Netflix, don’t bother subscribing just for this show. It is most certainly not worth it.

The Place Beyond the Pines Is Where I Wanna Be!

In Movies on April 15, 2013 at 10:10 pm


This past weekend, I had the pleasure of viewing “The Place Beyond the Pines” and I was not at all disappointed with this film. Seriously, I don’t think I can express just how good this film was. I had been following it from the first trailer and once I saw that it was finally in theaters, I knew I had to see it.

“The Place Beyond the Pines”, directed by Derek Cianfrance stars Ryan Gosling as Luke, a motorcycle stunt driver who travels with a circus as Luke and the Heart Throbs, doing all sorts of insane stunts. Somewhere near Schenectady, Luke has a fling with Romina (Eva Mendes) and comes to find out that she had a kid, Jason (Anthony Pizza) and it is his. Determined to do the right thing, Luke leaves his motorocyle ways behind and decides to stay to take care of his son and keep away Romina’s boyfriend, Kofi (Mahershala Ali) from trying to raise his son. A chance encounter leads to Luke meeting with Robin (Ben Mendelsohn) who helps Luke with his financial problems by offering his assistance in robbing banks. Luke decides to take Robin up on his offer and that’s when law enforcement gets involved. Avery (Bradley Cooper) becomes involved with investigating the robberies and to say anymore would not give this show the justice it deserves.

Let me start by saying that the flow of the story lines, because there are several, is particularly well done. There wasn’t a moment within this film that I questioned what was occurring on screen. Not a single moment. Everything occurred organically and conclusions were reached realistically, nothing was rushed, everything developed.

Some of the shots in this movie appeared tremendously well thought out, they appeared as if they were moving paintings and just gave me the chills as to how much they showed without saying anything. There are some great shots that occur within the woods that were beautiful and currently make me want to capture those stills and hang them on my wall.

Every single person in this film is ambiguous. Nobody is all good or bad, they are just real. The way the story unfolds is that you get to witness these characters at some high points within their life and at some very low points and the decisions they make within those moments shape who they truly are. It’s as if, I don’t know, this movie was set in reality. It was as if this movie was supposed to be about real people. Just like, oh I don’t know, “Blue Valentine”, which was directed by this same director. The way he expresses and captures humanity in this film and “Blue Valentine” tells me that Cianfrance, really understands how people act. He knows what they say, what they do, how they speak, what they mean. I felt like this story could have existed outside of the film and I would have found it incredibly heart-breaking.

Bradley Cooper really brings it, in this movie. He portrayed his character with conviction and an understanding that I don’t believe I saw in “Silver Linings Playbook”. When his character suffered, he suffered, when Avery was mad, Bradley Cooper was mad. This was depicted in the mannerisms that he presented when his character was pushed up against a wall. It showed in his eyes. Bradley was Avery.

Before I give away a lot more of the story, and subsequent spoilers, I want to say that you should see this movie. Pay the 10-15 dollars or whatever it costs you, to check this film out. It has everything, drama, romance, and action. And to top it all off, it is real. So, don’t read any further unless you have seen it! *Spoilers*

Emory Cohen as Aj and Dane Dehaan as Jason. Wow.  Cohen made me want to smack AJ several times throughout this film. Nothing upsets me more than a bully who uses his father’s coattails to get what he wants. I hated this character, hated him. Emory Cohen knew what he had to portray and he did it. He also allowed the audience to get a glimpse as to what he was suffering from, what his father had done to him, that made him such a horrible person. He added perspective and again showed how nobody is all good or all bad.

Dane Dehaan. What an amazing portrayal of the poor suburban upstater. I went to high school upstate and when the conversation went from covering boredom, to now what drugs do we do, I knew that this actor got it. Cianfrance directed it, but Dehaan knew what he had to portray. A rudderless kid  who was looking for friendship and his father. A kid who turned to drugs and drinking because what else is there to do in Schenectady, seriously, I can attest to how much drug usage there was in my high school. He had this haunted pained look on his face, because he was in pain. He was alone and had no idea what he was going to do with himself. What a remarkable performance.

So I know I said this a few times already, but check this movie out. You won’t regret it.

I Am No Longer Following “The Following”

In Uncategorized on April 11, 2013 at 10:04 am


Last night I watched “Whips and Regrets” and decided prior to viewing this episode, that this one was going to be the make or break episode for me. If I felt like I didn’t have to question every single decision that everyone makes on this show in this episode, which I have been doing for a majority of the episodes, I would continue watching it.

For those who don’t know what “The Following” is about, it tells the story of serial killer Joe Carrol (James Purefoy) as he attempts to ruin and destroy Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon), an F.B.I. agent who originally caught Caroll back in the day. Carroll, using his army of minions, decides that he is going to write a book and is casting Ryan as the hero and due to this, he provokes and prods Ryan in order to engage in various scenarios. Oh yeah, as if things didn’t get any weirder, Ryan and Joe share a common love interest Claire (Natalie Zea) who Carroll utilizes to get Hardy off his butt and acting like the hero that he dreams Ryan could be.

“The Following” derives its name from the army of minions at Carroll’s disposal mainly consiting of a few integral individuals such as Emma (Valorie Curry), Jacob (Nico Tortorella), and Paul (Adan Canto). These individuals bring their own separate arcs to this show without doing much else. 

I apologize if my synopsis appears somewhat vague and uninspiring, but if you haven’t seen it, I don’t want to spoil too much for you. But, I will say this, despite what my previous post said, this show is not worth it in my opinion. If you want to hear why and don’t mind being spoiled, then read below! *Spoilers*

Claire Matthews. Does she do anything other then demand where her son is? Anything else? In the episode prior to this one, she decides to leave the safety of Ryan and join Joe’s clan so she can see her son. Then once she arrives, she tries to escape and demands to see her son. Seriously? who is writing for this character? Does she not think through any action she takes? Does she think it will be a walk in the park to escape Joe’s compound with Joey at her side? Apparently she does. And to add insult to injury, she knows that there is a cult following Joe, does she truly believe that there are only 4 members to this cult? I guess she does because she was shocked and dismayed that she would be forced to interact with Joe at his compound and ohmygod, she’s going to be kept as a prisoner, the nerve of these cult members. This show could benefit a lot from a little dose of long-term thinking for Claire.

Is anyone, any single person, in the F.B.I. other then Ryan, Debra, and Mike Weston, capable of taking out any of these cult members? Any single person? I feel like every single other person within the F.B.I. is either young, stupid, or both. in this episode, a lone agent decides to explore an abandoned hallway within the catacomb armory and low and behold he gets killed. Why oh why does nobody on this show learn from anyone else’s mistakes. Why did their radios suddenly crap out? Why do the F.B.I. have such terrible radios? Why is nobody pairing up? This was just one of many cliche moments that is quickly making this show appear unoriginal.

And now Ryan’s neighbor is in on it? And Joe watches them as they engage in sexual relations? Seriously? Is Ryan going to find out that “The Following” is actually the entire population of the United States minus a few select individuals? Is Ryan’s grandmother in on it too? I was fascinated by this idea in the first episode, but I quickly become overwhelmed by just how large “The Following” really is. It’s too much.

So that’s about it. I am done with “The Following”. This show intrigued me in the beginning but I quickly found myself time and time again suspending my disbelief, and trying to understand how the F.B.I. can act some incompetently.


“I’m having an old friend for dinner”

In Uncategorized on April 10, 2013 at 12:34 pm


“Hannibal”, created by Bryan Fuller, premiered last Thursday and I’ll admit I was interested in this show from the very beginning, because I am a sucker for murder mysteries and because forensic psychology is a degree I am currently seeking. So when I read that they were going to make a show in which the audience would witness Lecter prior to him being caught, I was all in.

For those of you who didn’t catch the show, or have no idea what it is I am talking about, “Hannibal” depicts the early relationship between Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) as Lecter assists Graham in uncovering the motives behind serial killers, thus leading to their capture. Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) reached out to Lecter because he saw the toll that this type of work was having on Graham and wanted to keep Graham on the investigation.

The show begins with a depiction into Graham’s abilities which are shown as a yellow light waving across his field of vision thus allowing him to become the serial killer. Clearly, this type of work would take a toll upon anyone so it isn’t hard to believe that he would begin to work with Lecter so closely. The audience also gets a glimpse as to how Graham’s ability affects his personality and his social life, an aspect that I believe I did not see in “Red Dragon”, the book and movie that this series is loosely based off of. Where Graham appeared stoic and intelligent in the movie, Graham in the series appears nearly autistic and out of his element. I’m not saying that this is bad, I’m just saying that it is different and worth noting. 

So before I get into my spoiler riddled review, let me leave you with this. This show is good, it’s too early to tell if it is great, but it is good. Dancy does a wonderful job becoming this semi-autistic investigator, displaying all of the mannerisms that I have seen in many autistic individuals. Mikkelsen does a great job as well, displaying Lecter’s cunning superbly with these slight smiles and manipulative apologies. I think he will do Lecter justice. The verdict is out on Fishburne’s performance, at least for me. I can’t say whether I liked him or hated him. He just seemed to exist without bringing a lot to the table. That may be an indication of something in it of itself.

So, if you like dark murder investigation-esque shows, then check out “Hannibal”. It packs a great punch and left me yearning for another episode. Now onto the spoilers! Beware!

The biggest problem that I had with this episode was the presence of Lecter at the trailer and at the house. I completely get that he is supposed to help Graham psychologically, but is he also supposed to help him with his investigation? I guess, but I wasn’t the happiest with this idea. Call me nit-picky, but Lecter isn’t an F.B.I. agent. He was never given a gun nor should he be accompanying an F.B.I. agents to areas of interest. He is Graham’s psychologist and he could provide insight into some of these cases by looking at the crime scene photographs and issuing a verdict, but he shouldn’t be there, because he would just be a burden. He doesn’t have a gun or a badge, so he wouldn’t be able to assist Graham in arresting a suspect. If he was given a gun and a badge and made an F.B.I. agent, I would have an even harder time with this show. Lecter’s place is in the office, not the field. He is supposed to help Graham psychologically not with the arrest of a suspect.

I did very much like the dream sequences and I hope they continue being just as ambiguous and strange. I myself suffer from some unusual dreams and it bothers me, in some television shows and movies, when individuals have dreams that make complete logical. Graham’s dreams are anything but that. They are dark, bloody, and very very unusual.

I also liked how Dancy depicted Graham’s struggles with the darkness. These episodes that he had appeared to physically drain him and I could see that on Graham’s face and within his eyes. This work takes a toll upon him and Dancy displays this wonderfully.

Those, I thought, were the strong points and the low points of this show. What did you think? Where do you think this season is headed?

Also, spoiler, Eddie Izzard may appear on the show as a serial killer! I’m a huge Eddie Izzard fan, actually met him once, and would love to see him in this role.

Shameless Survives!

In Television on April 9, 2013 at 11:37 am


This past Sunday, “Shameless” ended with its season finale “Survival of the Fittest”. For those of you who don’t know about or don’t follow this show, you have got to check it out.

“Shameless” stars  William H. Macy as Frank Gallagher, an alcoholic father and con man who will use every situation to his benefit, even the lives of his children. Due to his absence as a father, Fiona, played wonderfully by Emmy Rossum, fills in and cares for her brothers, Lip, Jeremy Allen White, Ian, Cameron Monaghan, and Carl, Ethan Cutosky, all who have their own little quirks and intricacies that make this show rise above the rest. She also has to care for her younger sister, Debbie, Emma Kenney, all the while trying to maintain her relationship with Steve, Justin Chatwin. I apologize if this short synopsis makes this show sound soapy, because it is anything but that. These family struggle with poverty, drug problems, sexuality, and the legal system. The writing is phenomenal and the story lines are ridiculous without being over the top. The reason I tune into this show is to see the chaotically sexual relationship between Kev, Steve Howey, and Verionica, Shanola Hampton. The story line for these two characters are outrageous but they encounter every obstacle in a realistic manner and the solutions they reach, albeit are a bit strange, make some logical sense.

If you haven’t seen the show, then please don;t read on for there are spoilers everywhere!

The season finale finds our characters coming to terms with just about everything. Lipp is coming to terms with Karen’s brain injury, Fiona coming to terms with Steve’s sudden departure, that was heartbreaking, Sheila coming to terms with an empty nest, Ian coming to terms with Mickey’s marriage, and Frank coming to terms with the damage his drinking has done to his body. This isn’t an episode in which the characters live without a care in the world, this is an episode rooted in reality where everyone must atone for the decisions that they have made.

Frank is at an all new low, I have never seen him in a situation as bad as this one, and it is absolutely heartbreaking. Which goes to show, just how great an actor Macy is as well as what a great character Frank is. In a majority of episodes, he is just a degenerate drunk who cares only for himself and as many times as the audiences wishes he would just turn over a new leaf, or die, a point that Fiona expresses quite humorously, it is terrible to actually see it happen. When you see what his death is actually like, no longer does it seem something to wish for. You want to see the light-hearted con-man, not the bed ridden liver failing travesty. When he was leaving the hospital, I thought that he was going to kill himself and that was something that I didn’t want to happen, despite all of the crap he had brought upon himself and others.

Ian is also in an extremely low point within his life, which is understandable, the love of his life his marrying someone else and once again he is going to have to sneak around with a married man. He loves Mickey and despite my initial misgivings about Mickey, I want Ian to be happy. So I understand why he left and honestly I think he is going off to war in hopes that he will die.

Fiona. Poor poor Fiona. She gets nearly everything within this episode, except for one thing, Steve. She finally gets a full-time job, with benefits, she has Frank out of her hair, and Lip gets his diploma. But her support, her rock, is no longer there and once again she must do everything on her own. What a tragedy. God I wish Steve could have made that call to her to reassure you that he wasn’t running. I also do not think he is dead and will pop up again in season 4.

Speaking of Steve, I wasn’t the biggest fan of his character this season. I empathized with him when he was pissed that Fiona made that decision without him but I also don’t have any sympathy for individuals who don’t speak up when something is bothering them. Clearly, he was bothered by Fiona’s assumption that he would agree to whatever she said, without asking him, but he also didn’t bring it up until some time later. He also came off as kind of scummy, to me at least. Trying to sneak around, not really facing his problems. He could have come right out and told Fiona that he thought it would be best if he went to med school on his own, but instead of bringing it up to her, he just tried to be sneaky behind her back. The whole Este thing really detracted from his character as well. Would Fiona have been pissed that he had to fake being married to her? For sure? But could they have settled it like adults, possibly, but who knows.

Lip. Oh Lip. Lip was all over the place this season. He was happy with Mandy. Whoops, she turned out to be crazy. Karen was back. Let’s sleep with Karen. Wait, no. Let’s stick to Mandy. Wait, what am i going to do with the rest of my life? This experience he was having, I believe, at least, is one that is extremely realistic. Not the bouncing back and forth between two women, but the indecision he was experiencing. Lip’s at a point in his life where he is realizing that the decisions he make are truly his own decisions and will affect the rest of his life. As a result of this, Lip rebelled against what people wanted for him. Fiona wanted him to graduate, he didn’t want to graduate. His guidance counselor wanted him to go to college, nope, not going to college. In order to truly make his own decisions, he just rebelled against whatever people suggested for him. However, nearing the end of the season, he realized that what people wanted for him wasn’t necessarily bad for him. I love that he got into college and I think he will go. I think that will allow the show to expand a a bit more and include some other great characters, which they need to do with the loss of Karen, Jody, and Hymie(sp?). I think this would be a great route for the show to take.

So, in conclusion, I kinda sorta liked the ending. I loved and hated the ambiguous nature of it. i want to know it Lip is going to school, I want to know what happens to Frank and where the hell he is going, I want to know what happened to Jimmy. But alas, Showtime needs to keep me interested so I tune in next season and because of this finale, I will definitely do that. What did you think of the finale?


In Television on April 3, 2013 at 12:07 pm


In order to help grieving “The Walking Dead” fans, HBO decided to have the season premiere of “Game of Thrones” season treis. If only this was the actual reason, sadly, as far as I know, companies do not work together in some instances.

For those of you who live under a rock and don’t know what “Game of Thrones” is or think that it is simply a medieval version of musical chairs, then consider watching this show.

Yes, it’s fantasy, and yes it involves swords and dragons and magic, but it is political and cunning in it’s nature. Seriously, if you love politics, you should watch this show because of how real it seems, it that regard, and because of how well it depicts all of the problems associated with fiefdoms. Seriously, being a king is also but pretty terrible at the same time.

I am going to try and explain this show as best I can, but it will be difficult. It is based on the books of the same name written by George R.R. Martin and I cannot stress to you enough how richer your experience will be if you read the books first, then watch the shows. I’m really not going to try to give you a synopsis of the episode or the previous seasons, because they are much to complex to simply write out in a simple paragraph. However, I will tell you what I look forward to for this season and what I am already disappointed in. *Spoilers* Ahead!

I am pumped for Beric Dondarrion, played by Richard Dormer. Seriously stoked for his character and I hope they costume him in a similar fashion to how he was depicted within the book. One of my favorite characters within the book and I cannot express how awesome it will be to see him.

Also pumped for the White Walkers. We got a brief glimpse of them in the prior seasons and I really do hope we get to see them in action.

Super pumped for Mance Rayder, played by Ciaran Hinds. I love his story line, love his character, and cannot wait for what he has to show us. I love the interaction he has with the Watch and I hope that Hinds can portray him, as well as I imagined him.

Also super pumped, for Olenna Tyrell, played by Diana Rigg. She is a great character who can play the game of thrones better then most her age. Love what she has in store for us and hope that Rigg gives her character justice.

Tyrion, played by Peter Dinklage, is back and worse for wear. I am not a fan as to how they portrayed his wound, it was supposed to be much worse, but I am a fan of how they are setting up his relationship with his father. For those of you who read the book, like myself, you and I both know what is coming and I think the show is building it up perfectly.

Although he wasn’t shown in the first episode, I am pumped to see Jaime Lannister, played by Nickolaj Coster-Waldau . I love his character arch and I pray that they will portray it just right. He is a solid character whose story I love the more I think about it.

Kind of disappointed that they didn’t include Strong Belwas alongside Barristan Selmy, played by Ian McElhinney. From what I remember, these two individuals were supposed to appear side by side and Selmy was supposed to be wielding a staff and Belwas was supposed to be wielding two swords. I liked his character in the book, he was equally hilarious and ferocious, but alas I guess they decided not to include him.

Pumped that they are including the Reeds, Jojen, played by Thomas Sangster, and Meera, played by Ellie Kendrick. These two individuals should have been included in the last season and I’m glad they are including them now because of the relationship they have with Bran Stark, played by Issac Hempstead Wright.

Also cannot wait for Arya’s, played by Maisie Williams, story. Her progression, is just so interesting and I cannot wait to see what Martin reveals for us in the end. Also, Williams does a great job embodying that character.

All in all, I liked the premiere.  But I also fear, that some things may be rushed and skipped over. Alas, that is often the case when a book as epic as Game of Thrones gets converted into a television show. I hope the writers include the most necessary parts and do not trim the fat on what they consider useless characters and plot devices. I liked where season 3 began and left us and will write a more thorough review once the season ends.

If you haven’t watched “Game of Thrones” don’t watch it until you’ve read it. If you have read it, watch the season 3 premiere, and let me know where you think this season is headed. 

These Boots Were Made For Walking….

In Television on April 3, 2013 at 10:11 am


“The Walking Dead” season  3 has finally come to a close and what a ride it has been. First off, let me just say, that this season far surpassed the second season. With two different story lines, this season was able to keep myself and the audience interested and on the edge of our respective seats. We didn’t have filler after filler episode and watch as the group slowly formed into little high school cliques. In this season, we were able to jump from one group to the next and see what was in store for the Governor’s clan and Rick’s democracy.

For those who don’t know, “The Walking Dead” is based off a graphic novel series written by Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard. The show depicts a group of survivors trying to come to terms with the world as it stands now and killing the army of the undead to survive.  Andrew Lincoln plays Rick Grimes a former sheriff who has been appointed the leader of his group, which consists of Glenn Rhee, the fighter with a heart of gold, played by Steven Yeun, Carl Grimes, Rick’s son and protector of the group, played by Chandler Riggs, Daryl Dixon, the anti-hero, my favorite characters and my favorite archetype, Carol Peletier, the woman who’s finally taken control of her life, played by Melissa McBride, Maggie Greene, a strong woman and lover of Glenn, played by Lauren Cohan, Hershel Greene, the village elder, played by Scott Wilson, and Beth Greene, the appointed caretaker of Rick’s baby child. There are a lot of characters to this show, which makes this show particularly great, but adds to my descriptive length. Within the Governor’s clan, we have The governor himself, who has one hell of a back story. played by phenomenally well by David Morrissey, Merle Dixon, brother to Daryl and even more of an anti-hero than Daryl, played by Michael Rooker,  and Andrea, played by Laurie Holden. There is also a newcomer to this show, Danai Gurrira, who plays Michonne, who is a samurai sword wielding vigilante who often fights the bonds she has with people.

Season 3 finds Rick and his groups situated in a prison where they not only have to fear the walking dead but the Governor and his Woodbury clan, who only seems interested in destroying rather then compromising. 

As I said before, this season was great because of the twists and turns it featured, and it benefited greatly from David Morissey’s presence. He did an excellent job in his role as the Governor, he portrayed all the mannerisms of a psychopath, to a t. Whenever he came on screen, he gave me the chills and just his character arch will have you burn through this series.

I also liked Rick’s transformation. He appeared to do a complete 180 and I liked how he came to that conclusion, because, at least to me, it seemed realistic. When faced with a situation in which you must fight to survive, I assume, it would be easy to lose yourself, to lose your sense of humanity. And Rick’s arch displayed just that, but once your in the deepest darkest hole, you can witness just how far you have come and either you can continue on that path, or you can change it.

Glenn has also come a long way within the series and I like where he is at. Especially with Maggie. I like to see two individuals coming together despite all of their harrowing experiences  and truly be with one another. I hope that the writers don’t make an jealousy story lines for these two, that is something I could not deal with. 

Merle’s story line also makes this show watchable because of his character, which is absolutely disgusting at sometimes, but also because of the choices he makes. I cannot express enough how much I love individuals who drive themselves to destruction and they feel that they have to make amends to something. It may be kind of sick for me to admit that, but still, it makes this show a thousand times better.

The finale for this show was good,but doesn’t hold a flame to last season’s finale. But that doesn’t mean it was bad. Season 3 was a much better season, with a lot more characters and a gripping plot, while season 2 became dry and boring up until the finale, which made up for it. Season 3 didn’t need the big firework show at the end, it had that throughout.

So watch, “The Walking Dead” and if you already have, let me know what you thought about the finale and season 3.


Also,  *SPOILER*

but I’m glad Andrea is dead. Seriously, she was a terrible character and I was just waiting until the writers just killed her off. She was too on the fence for me and like what Carl said, “If you have the shot, you take it”. She had the shot so many damn times and didn’t take it, so I really don’t have any sympathy for her death.
