Did I watch “The Walking Dead” last night???

No, and I didn’t bother. I’m glad I didn’t watch it ’cause even if the Season 4 premiere of “The Walking Dead” got extremely high ratings… I heard last night’s premiere got a lot of negative reviews which didn’t surprise me at all. The show is really going downhill with the writing. I got the season 4 premiere on the DVR, all recorded but I’m probably not gonna bother watching it anyway since it got so much mixed reviews.

I think the only reason a lot of people continue to watch despite the bad writing is because of Daryl. Norman Reedus is a tremendous actor and Daryl is a great character but they really need to back off on him and concentrate on the story. Give other characters a chance for the spotlight. “The Walking Dead” is supposed to be the Rick Grimes show but apparently it’s quickly turning into the Daryl Dixon show. I think Daryl is what helps keep the show on the air ’cause people can’t get enough of him.

Yep, I think I’m all done with “The Walking Dead” for sure.

Now, if you like zombie apocalypse type of stories there is better out there. There are tons of zombie apocalypse movies. You should start watching George A. Romero movies, that’s a nice start right there. How much do you wanna bet that most “Walking Dead” fans haven’t even seen the original black and white “Night of the Living Dead” movie? I’ll take that film over the crap “Walking Dead”.

I played some “Grand Theft Auto V” on the PS3 all evening last night instead. I’ll probably play some more of that game tonight.

Walking Dead last night ****SPOILERS****

Well, I was kind of disappointed in last night’s “Walking Dead”. Remember, how I keep teasing that the Governor was going to do something horrible to Michonne but I wasn’t gonna say what it is? It was taken from the books and I wasn’t sure if they were going to use it for the TV show or not.

Let me explain below with Spoiler warnings!!! Do not read if you haven’t seen the episode yet.

If you haven’t seen it and curious on what it is, anyway, don’t yell at me, ’cause you’re the one that read it.

**********************SPOILER WARNING*************************
*******************************************************************************

**********************DO NOT READ HERE************************

In the books, there was a point where Michonne sliced one of the Governor’s ears off with her sword. So in retaliation, the Governor held Michonne captive in one of his garage’s similar to the one you saw on the show last night. He had both of her arms chained up. The Governor raped, and tortured Michonne, while Glen listened to her next door. Then he used her for one of his zombie fight arena shows that he has. Later on, Michonne was able to escape.

Instead, on the TV show last night, The Governor ends up keeping Glen and Maggie captive. Glen was in one room and Maggie in the other. The Governor, came pretty close to raping Maggie but he stopped, as if it was a warning kind of thing.

I’m not sure if this season is planning to use the big Michonne vs. the Governor feud that was in the books for the TV show. Keep in mind, we still have the 2nd half of Season 3. So maybe the almost rape on Maggie was just a little preview of what’s coming up. Setting up for the big Governor vs. Michonne feud.

All of this season was not just adapted from book 3, they’ve been taking a lot of stuff from book 3, 4, 5, and 6. So much they left out, and changing the story around some.

I’m not quite sure if the rest of season 3 will use the Michonne rape and torture storyline or not. I’m hoping they will ’cause it will be a bit too controversial for TV. It will help the show get higher ratings, and it will sure as hell get everyone talking.

Remember I keep saying on this blog, that the Governor is not gonna be a nice guy? TOLD YA SO!!!!!!! 🙂

1st half of this season may be good, but if they use the Michonne rape stuff, the 2nd half will be even better.

Walking Dead – Season 3 thoughts so far…

I’m really liking “Walking Dead – Season 3” so far. It’s an impressive season. Last Sunday’s episode was pretty amazing and it’s going to be interesting to see what’s going to happen this Sunday. I like the whole story with Michonne, The Governor, Andrea, and Merle. I love how they’re giving Merle more screen time. Awesome.

I’m not trying to give any spoilers, but just a tiny hint, while Michonne is a bad ass character,what’s about happen to her is not gonna be so good. I’m not saying she’s gonna get killed off but in the books, the Governor is not gonna treat her so kindly. I’m not sure if they will use that stuff for the TV show, but I’m hoping. Not gonna say what they do to her, but something bad is gonna happen to Michonne.

As for last Sunday’s ending, when Rick answered the phone call in the prison, some may say it was hallucination, but it could be an actual call too. I think we may see a Morgan Jones return ’cause I believe that’s who that was in that phone call, just my prediction, not a spoiler. “Season 3” started off as a let down, but got better as it went along.

Daryl’s a badass like usual. I can’t wait to see what’s gonna happen when Daryl reunites with Merle and go face to face with each other for the first time. Will Daryl rejoin Merle and turn on Rick? Or will Daryl stick with Rick and fight against his own brother? It’ll be interesting to see what’s going to happen.

I think the Governor is a great character, and David Morrissey, the guy who plays him, is a phenomenal actor.

Yeah, I’ve been reading the “Walking Dead” books, but I only read the first 6 of them. I need to read the rest of them, and will get back into collecting the “Walking Dead” books soon. They are using a lot of stuff from the books this season.

Thought: What’s next for Jon Bernthal???

Now that we all know what happened with Shane, this means that actor Jon Bernthal, is officially done with the show. Yep, that’s it. Only two seasons for him in, “The Walking Dead”. Kind of sad though, I was hoping they make Shane live for another season or two.

Now the fans are wondering, what’s next for Jon? He is a phenomenal actor. I thought he did a great job playing Shane.

Before he got the job for, “The Waking Dead”, he did some movie roles and appeared on various TV shows over the years. It’s just that he didn’t become a well known actor until he got hired for, “The Walking Dead”.

Well, “The Walking Dead”, will for sure, open up many doors for his career. Now that he’s a well known star, expect some bigger things for his career up ahead. I’m sure he will get some big movie roles.

I’m pretty sure the horror movie industry are all over this guy now. I can see him starring in more horror films. I think he would make a pretty cool villain in an action film or horror film.

Whatever he does, I’m sure he will succeed.

Edit to add: On a side note, I just read that Jon went to college in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. He went to Skidmore College. Thought it was pretty cool… his info at wikipedia.
