CM Podcast 195 – The Walking Dead Season 9 Mid-Season Premier

On Sunday 2/10/19 – AMC had the Season 9 Mid-Season Premier of The Walking Dead. There were several question that were left at the end of the Mid-Season Finale: Is Jesus really dead? Negan‘s cell door is open! Will he take revenge on Michonne and the others at Alexandria? Who are the Whisperers and what do they want? Will Henry ever get out of jail?

We learned the answer to some of these question at the end of the premiere but there are even more questions that will come as the season progresses.

Since I follow the comic, I have a good guess on what will happen with the rest of the season (and will be spoiling it at the end of the podcast). Jon does not read the comic, only watches the show so I ask him questions and see if he can guess at what will happen. Jon talks on how fans will react to Jesus’ death. What will happed with Negan and has he truly changed his ways? Are the Whisperers a major threat and if so, are they worst than Negan and the Saviors? How does he like the new recruits: Magna, Kumiko and Luke?

***MAJOR SPOILERS IN THE PODCAST!!***

After our discussion on the premiere, I will be spoiling the rest of Season 9 based on events that unfold in the comic. Do not listen if you do not want to know the fates of some major characters. Here are a couple of covers from the comic…

Some of these images have already happened – like Negan escaping. But what about the other 2 covers? What does it mean? If you are curious then listen the the whole podcast.

CM Podcast 184 – The Walking Dead Season 9 Mid-Season Finale

Season 9 has been billed as the “finale season for Rick Grimes“.  AMC even started counting down the episodes for Rick’s final appearance.  Jon and I have seen all the episodes of Season 9 of TWD up to the mid-season finale and we will be talking about Rick’s final rodeo and other story lines in this week’s podcast.


We tackle questions like:

Do you like how the Sanctuary vs Oceanside story was tied up? 

What are our thoughts on Rick’s ‘final’ episode? 

How do you fell about the time skip and the introduction of Magna and her group?


Magna – sympathetic new character or just a female Rick Grimes retread?

We also opine on the newest adversary, The Whisperers – who are they?  WHAT ARE THEY?  How sane are you if you think wearing human flesh is okay?  Finally, we here Jon’s thoughts on Negan’s open door.

Finally, we wrap up the podcast by reviewing my Spoiler predictions based on the comic’s story and seeing just how accurate they were or were not.  This is a spoiler free podcast (unless you have not watched all the episodes up to the Season 9 finale.  If this is true, go watch them and then come back).

CM Podcast 177 – The Walking Dead Season 9 Premiere

It’s 10/13/2018 – Happy Walking Dead Day!

TWD_Season_09

I apologize in advance for this week’s recording.  Jon and I both have head colds and we feel like we are the walking dead right now.  We did not want to wait a week to talk about this so please bare with us.

Jon and I have watched the premiere of Season 9 of the Walking Dead and we go over the show.  There have been many changes since the end of season 8: Negan is no longer in control of the SaviorsRick and the Survivors have taken control of Sanctuary and it, as well as the other communities, have started to produce their own crops and thrive.  This is just a start of the new society that Rick wants to make by there are many hurdles that they will still have to overcome.

We go over some plot points and speculate on the future of this season.

***SPOILER ALERT!!!***

And we wrap the podcast up with our Complete Season Spoiler Review for Season 9 up until the mid-season finale.  We do this by giving plot points from the comic and take guesses on if it will be used in the show.  We have been doing this for a few years now and the predictions have been pretty accurate so far.

We’ll be back to talk about the rest of the season at the end of the mid-season finale.

Your comics pal.

CM Podcast 145 – The Walking Dead Mid-Season 8 Premiere

Another February ends and another season of Walking Dead’s mid-season premiere show airs. Followed by another awesome Comics Misremembered Podcast talking about the show and spoiling the rest of the season.  It goes without saying:

**MAJOR SPOILERS IN THIS PODCAST REGARDING THE SHOW AND THE FUTURE OF SEASON 8**

TWD_Mid_8

Rick looks pissed in this poster and if you watched the episode, you know why.  I will not discuss the object of Rick’s misery in this post but we do discuss it in the podcast.

Morgan also looks to be backsliding to his former killing machine modem.  Jon and I chat about that and where we think it will lead.

We also speculate of the future of the Walking Dead TV show after Season 8.

Finally, I do my favorite section – Season Spoiling Predictions based on prediction of the comic series.  I have read the comic, Jon does not.  I make calculated guesses on what will happen to the characters based on the comic storyline.  It has been pretty accurate in the past, what will happen this season!?

CM Podcast 127 – The Walking Dead Season 8 Premiere

TWD_S8

It’s WAR!  Rick and Neagan are finally going to war with each other.  Who will win?  What will happen to the loser?  How many casualties will there be?  Will Carl ever find another giant can of chocolate pudding?

These are the questions that everyone will be asking as we go through Season 8 of The Walking Dead.  The season premier was last week so Jon and I go over the episode.

TWDcomic_S8

After we finish talking about the premiere, we start our patented All Season Spoilers part of the podcast.  As you know, I have been reading The Walking Dead comic so I will review parts of the comic story that I think we will see in the show and I make predictions on the outcome of events to unfold up to the Mid-season episode.  If you listen to the entirety of the podcast, you will hear speculation on the death of characters – All Spoilers – YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Then Jon wraps up the podcast with a question to the listeners about Blade Runner 2049.

The first casualty of war is innocence. The second is a giant animated tiger. Stop crying, Rick.” – SL Buckly

When Rick is smiling, shit is about to get real.

CM Podcast 82 – Walking Dead Season 7 Mid-Season Finale

AMC’s The Walking Dead Season 7 TV show has reached its mid-season finale last week so Jon and I are going to do a review on the story so far and what we think about the series this year.

twd_negan02

We’ve already done 2 podcasts on the Season 7 Premier and the 2nd episode that introduces Ezekiel so we will not be discussing those points in this podcast.

twd_negan

We do talk about the rest of the season so this is how the podcast goes:

Section 1: Jon does not read the comic, I do.  I ask Jon how does he feel about this season so far?  Is it better or worst than previous seasons?  Does he like the introduction of Negan?  And a lot more questions.  I also give my opinions on the show.  We discuss the mystery figure at the end of the last episode and give our theories on who it will be.

Section 2: I did a review in CM Podcast 46 about how season 7 will play out based on the story line of the comic series.  I read the notes from that podcast and we compare it against what the show did.  We compare and contrast any similarities and/or differences.  Just how close is the comic to the TV show this year.

Section 3: Spoiler Territory – At this point, I warn you that I will be going over near future story lines and making guesses on how the rest of Season 7 will play out and how it will end.  Listen at your own risk.  I give plenty of warning to turn off.

Thanks for listening.

Your Comics Pal,

Jim

CM Podcast 76 – TWD Season 7 Revisited

This is not a mistake.  Not a hoax.  Not an imaginary story.  We are talking about The Walking Dead Season 7 again this week.

twd_negan02

You see, Jon could not join me last week to talk about the premier episode and he had several opinions he wanted to share on the show, Negan, the victim(s) and several other things that happened.  I told him I would give him a chance this week to go over it.

caution_spoilers

As always we will be talking spoilers in this podcast.

Jon goes over how the Premier episode went and who he believed would be killed off.  He talks about Negan and Rick’s conversation and what he believes Rick will do through Season 7.

We both have seen episode 2 and we talk about The Kingdom and it’s leader, King Ezekiel

ezekiel

It’s good to be the King!

Everyone that listens to the podcast on a regular knows that I am not a fan of Ezekiel nor the Kingdom.  Jon does not read the comic, so I find out his thoughts on the show’s version of this character.

I promise – We will not talk about The Walking Dead show again until the mid-season break.  Next week, we will talk about Doctor Strange – the movie and the comics.

Your comics pal,

Jim

CM Podcast 75: TWD Season 7 Premier

Finally, it’s here!  The start of The Walking Dead Season 7 and we can finally see who Negan clubbed to death!  Yeah!

twd_negan

“Negan looks like Fonzie with a cravat but it’s the zombie apocalypse so fashion sense is right out the window.”

Before we get into who got a bat to their head, I want to warn you up front; this podcast is full of episode 1 spoilers so if you have not watched the episode and want to keep it a surprise, don’t listen to it now.  Come back once you watch the show.

caution_spoilers

Now we have that out of the way, let me run down the podcast.  I am recording by myself this week because Jon had to be called away on a Family Emergency at short notice.  Don’t worry.  He is all right and the situation has righted itself so he will be back with us next week.

I start the podcast by talking about cliffhangers and how I enjoy them and that taking time away from a show to process it can be a good and creative thing.

twd_negan02

I move into talking about the actual show and how it plays out.  How the show reveals the actual execution of person(s) on the show and how the remaining members of Rick’s team react.

I talk about the symbolism that was used in the show and where I believe the writes got their inspiration (besides the comic).

The podcast finishes on where Carol and Morgan are and what we can expect from  The Kingdom.

carol_morgan

“This shot reminds me of the movie The Shining.  I hope that Carol and Morgan will be okay.”

I then focus on the actual violence of the killings and how they are not as gory as people on the internet portray it.  I give an example of the movie Scanners and its infamous head explosion scene.  I promise to post it here and I am a man of my word:

Hope you enjoy my solo effort and hope to see you back here next week.

Jim
