The Walking Dead Season 7 ended last Sunday so Jon and I will discuss the 2nd half of Season 7. We talk about Janis and the Scavengers (which is a great name for a band), Sasha’s sacrifice, Eugene’s betrayal, Ezekiel’s choice, Rick’s stand and more!
We also review the predictions I made based on the comic at the end of Season 7’s mid season episode and how much of it came true.
As always, there will be major spoilers in this podcast so if you have not watched all of Season 7 and want to be surprised, don’t listen now. Come back later.
AMC’s TheWalking 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.
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.
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.
This is not a mistake. Not a hoax. Not an imaginary story. We are talking about The Walking Dead Season 7 again this week.
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.
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
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.
Finally, it’s here! The start of The Walking Dead Season 7 and we can finally see who Negan clubbed to death! Yeah!
“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 spoilersso 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.
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.
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.
“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.
