The Walking Dead Season 6 Mid Season Premiere – No Way Out

Football seasons is over and now that The Walking Dead is back, that means Sunday nights are exclusively TWD nights.

We last left our gang in the middle of a zombie hoard using old zombie guts on sheets trick (which I honestly don’t know why they don’t use it more. It works!), Glen was with that girl (I always forget her name) and they just got to Alexandria, and Abraham, Daryl, and Sasha were headed back in a oil truck. And we go from there.

Obviously spoilers ahead, so read on if you know what happened and care to know what I thought.  Continue reading “The Walking Dead Season 6 Mid Season Premiere – No Way Out”

SUNDAY NIGHT TV RECAP – Nov 1, 2015 (Sunday Night Football, The Walking Dead, WS Game 5)

nov1 tv

 

Sunday Night. November 1st. It was a busy night for television. Let’s take a quick recap of everything.

First, it was Sunday Night Football. A matchup of the unbeatens. But not just two unbeaten teams, two undefeated teams with MVP quarterbacks. Rodgers vs Manning. The Packers offense vs the Broncos defense. Gonna be a good game.

Well, not so much.

The Broncos lead 7-0 after one, and held the Packers scoreless in the first quarter for the first time this season. The got their second TD less than a minute into the second, and eventually led 17-0 half way through the quarter.

But while this game was going on, there was another TV appointment I had. Nine o’clock, AMC. The Walking Dead. It’s gonna be a 90 minute episode.

And it was, and it was all about Morgan. We knew this from the preview last week. It wasn’t everyone’s type of episode. And I don’t think it neeeded to be 90 minutes, considering it was purely story driven and didn’t have any intense action sequences like the previous  two episodes.

On the commercials, I would got back to SNF, to see how bad the Packers were playing.

Still bad.

Back to TWD.

Now I didn’t hate this episode, but it obviously was a different style of episode. I guess it was nice to see where Morgan became a bostaff expert, and I did like the Eastman character, but I think a 60 minute episode would have sufficed.

Now with the show over, its back to SNF.

Oh, look, Aaron Rodgers fumbled and the Broncos got a safety.

Packers are still bad.

I was expecting more from Aaron. A lot more than 77 yards. (I guess when you have Drew Brees throwing over 500 yards, it has to even out somewhere else).

I wanted to see how this Broncos D could handle Rodgers. If they could, I would take them more seriously as a whole team. The Sunday Night matchup against the Patriots at the end of the month could feature another matchup of unbeaten teams.

But since this game was getting boring, it was time to turn on Game 5 of the World Series.

Mets are winning. like the have been most of the games. 2-0. Harvey wants to come out for the 9th, and he does.

Walk to Cain. Stolen base by Cain. Double by Hosmer. 2-1 Mets. Harvey’s done, in comes Familia.

Moustakas moves Hosmer to third. 1 out.

And now for the big play.

A grounder to third, Wright looks the runner back, fires to first for the out but Hosmer took off towards home. Duda’s throw was a dud, towards first base side and wild. Tie Game.

Blown save 3 in the WS by Familia. A new record.

Now after a few more extra innings, pinch hitter Colon takes his first AB of the World Series, with the winning run 90 feet away. He gets the single, and in the process, opens up the flood gates. When the inning was over, the Royals scored 5 more to lead 7-2 and all but seal up the victory.

Congrats KC. Nice comeback after being so close last year.

Beat the Mets, Beat the Mets, step right up and defeat the Mets!

 

Georgia Gets 3″ of Snow, Chaos Ensues

Take a look. One of these pictures is real. Can you guess which one?

Come on Georgia. It looks like the Walking Dead down there (which if you didn’t know is filmed in Georgia).

ATLANTA — A winter storm dumped snow on parts of north Georgia and coated the metro Atlanta region. Much of Georgia was under a winter storm watch for Tuesday and Wednesday, with some areas forecast to see as much as 3 inches of snow.

People stocked up on ice-melting chemicals, school systems closed and road crews fought against heavy traffic to treat highways to stave off black ice accumulations.

Gov. Nathan Deal declared a state of emergency. Deal spokesman Brian Robinson said the emergency declaration would free up resources the state can use to address emergency situations as they arise. State government offices were expected to be closed until noon Wednesday, Robinson said.

 

Ok, I get it. I doesn’t usually snow in the South. But come on, 3 inches! I had to bold that line, as much as 3 inches. Here in Massachusetts, or the Northeast, or basically the Northern half of the country, 3 inches means I barely snowed. You don’t even have to shovel 3 inches. The news makes it seems like they got 3 feet or something.

I got 3 tips for all people living in the south for when it snows.

1. Drive Slower

2. Don’t PANIC! Are you serious! Spending 15 hours in your car!

3. That’s it. Simple.
