I know I need to let some things go and I don't want to end up being one of those guys who can write a thesis on the inaccuracies of a show like House or Law & Order, but two things irked me about shows that I like very much last night.
THE BIG BANG THEORY - I was reminded by my lovely wife that BBT has had different writers recently, which explains why the show has gone from "must see" to "typical sitcom with geek references" in recent years. This week's episode was a funny one, mainly thanks to Mayim Bialik giving me one of the first LOL moments I've had with BBT in recent memory after Amy receives her gift from Sheldon. But the part that
I feel bad just posting a link to my Pop Bunker Walking Dead recap, so I'll give you guys something else. If you're interested, after the break I'll post my "notes" that I keep while I watch the show that I later turn into my recap. I generally write them as I'm watching live and not go back for anything or pause, so there are typos and all kinds of crap that comes from me typing as fast as I can while still trying to pay attention. I also can't remember character names for crap, so I mark them with something to remember them by.
SPOILERS: there will be some for the current episode, so if you haven't seen it yet, watch it, then read my actual recap over at Pop Bunker, then read this gibberish.
Over 3,300 words this time - they keep getting larger and larger. As usual, there are spoilers, so don't read it until you've seen the episode, or unless you don't want to: The Walking Dead Recap: Episode 2.6 – Secrets
We'll go back to exploring the MLB offseason tomorrow.
I did my weekly Walking Dead recap again for Pop Bunker this week, and it's posted here.
My quick thoughts on this week's episode (and where the show is going) are after the break (since there's spoilers):
I do write other stuff, you know. Over at Pop Bunker, I started doing weekly recaps again - this time for the AMC show The Walking Dead, based on the comic series. A few months back, my wife and I started reading the graphic novels and got hooked. They are excellent and I highly recommend them. They're done in black & white, so if you're turned off by gore, that helps a bit, but keep in mind that they're still not kid-friendly. There's still a buttload of zombies in various states of decomposition, and that's not the worst part for kids. There is a lot of disturbing subjects that are addressed - subjects that I doubt will see the light of day in the AMC TV version.
Anyway, if you like the TV show, check out my latest recap here. It's in my usual recap style, so there are spoilers-a-plenty, and lots of random nicknames for characters.
UNRELATED NOTE: I know I haven't been updating frequently but work has taken over a decent amount of free time and I've been battling a cold for the last week or so. I'll try to update more frequently though in the future, especially with the baseball offseason coming up.
