    TWDTT 123 - Here's Negan

    Backstory of the Man with the Bat!



    For episode 123 of The Walking Dead Talk Through, Brian and LT and Kyle talk through The Walking Dead Season 10 Episode 22 titled Here’s Negan. Here’s Negan was written by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick and directed by Laura Belsey.



    We finally get the 411 on Negan…Negan Smith!



    We have waited for a long time to get more about Negan and his wife before he turned into a murderous villain. And it was worth the wait. This was the best episode out of the six that we got in this extra Season 10c and we wish all of the episodes we got were as good as this one. The acting chemistry between Jeffrey Dean Morgan and his wife Hilarie Burton Morgan was one of the best and made this episode even better. There was so much to this and the end scene with a very tense stare-down between Maggie and Negan make us look forward to what they have in store for us in Season 11.

    TWDTT 122 - Diverged

    Yawn!



    For episode 122 of The Walking Dead Talk Through, Brian and LT and Kyle talk through, more like Yawn through The Walking Dead Season 10 Episode 21 titled Diverged. Diverged was written by Heather Bellson and directed by David Boyd.



    Did we really need this episode?



    Well if you haven’t already started the podcast yet just know this one is marked explicit. There were no more F’s to give by the time we finished. This episode was just too F’ing slow. And really? Did we need another episode about Carol and Daryl? I mean where’s Maggie? Or Rosita? I mean it was nice to see Jerry but they could have given us more. While it was not all doom and gloom and we understand that Covid made its mark on production, but this just wasn’t great. And the ratings, while have been going down for some time, was the lowest. Ever. And I don’t blame anyone. We did get good feedback and the listeners did make some good points. And we do agree with them, but just want good TWD content and not just filler, just because. Next week does look better. And I hope it delivers. With that I hope you enjoy our discussion, that is not just all bad, just hard to cover, this time around.

    Splinter!



    For episode 121 of The Walking Dead Talk Through, Brian and LT and Kyle talk through The Walking Dead Season 10 Episode 20 titled Splinter. Splinter was written by Julia Ruchman & Vivian Tse and directed by Laura Belsey.



    Princess loses her mind…no seriously!



    I mean did she ever. I mean there’s the ADHD, the anxiety, the PTSD, the depression, the crushing loneliness, and the active imagination that helps her cope with all of it. I guess you could say we had spilt personalities this episode. Kyle liked the episode after the second watch but Brian and LT were just okay with it. I mean for what it was we did get a little introduction of Princess but what does that mean going forward into Season 11. I guess we will have to wait a see. We did get more insight into the stormtroopers and about how they operate when they meet new people. This is our first introduction of the Commonwealth and it didn’t look like it was going in the way Eugene may have thought it was. We did have some feedback, good and bad, but while I hope what we are being given in this Season 10.5 of the Walking Dead, that it pays off for when we get to see Season 11 this fall. Fingers Crossed.

    TWDTT 120 - One More

    One More!



    For episode 120 of The Walking Dead Talk Through, Brian and LT and Kyle (Yes, He’s back) talk through The Walking Dead Season 10 Episode 19 titled One More. One More was written by Erik Mountain & Jim Barnes and directed by Laura Belsey. Kyle also gives his thoughts on Episode 17, Home Sweet Home and Episode 18, Find Me.



    Gabriel likes Bourbon! Who knew?



    It turns out that Gabriel is a bourbon connoisseur. Who Knew? This was a better episode as some of you thought the last two were slow. But we did get a good Aaron and Gabriel pairing on their journey to find supplies. There was a lot of blood, dead families, and a crazy tense encounter with none other Robert Patrick playing a character named May who forced our two into a deadly game of Russian Roulette. In this episode, we get to see sides of Gabriel that I don’t think we have seen before. A deeper sense of his view of others and this world where Aaron is still holding on to hope and the good in people. Even if they are not so good to him. In the end, these last few episodes are giving us new insights into our characters that we hope pay off in Seasons 11.



    Ratings reach all-time lows…

    For episode 119 of The Walking Dead Talk Through, Brian and LT talk through The Walking Dead Season 10 Episode 18 titled Find Me. Find Me was written by Nicole Mirante-Matthews and directed by David Boyd.



    Puppy Dog!



    We get a Dog origin story this week. It turns out that Daryl WASN’T the one to name him Dog. It turns out… Leah did. Who’s Leah, you ask? We’ve never seen her before, but what happened to her? Will we see her again? Will she be in the next series?



    Daryl’s got a girlfriend! Daryl’s got a girlfriend?



    It turns out that Daryl met and had a relationship in that seven-year period after Rick’s death, Daryl had a relationship with a woman he met named Leah. Daryl was given an ultimatum, where he had to choose between his people, staying out there looking for Rick, and being with Leah. By the time he decided, it was too late, but why did he have to make that decision? It seemed baffling to us, especially me. And while we’re at it, put the map away!!!



    Carol and Daryl…



    When Carol leaves Alexandria with him, he calls her on it. He even says that he should have let her stay on that boat. Until he said it, I forgot about that boat. Of course, we know they are going to end up together in a series, so any conflict between them is a little anti-climactic, but it was still good drama nonetheless.

    TWDTT 118 - Home Sweet Home

    It’s back! Home Sweet Home!



    After all this time, the 10c premiere is here! I’m sorry that we’re late this week, due to problems we had during the recording (though you won’t hear it much) and being busy at work. For episode 118 of The Walking Dead Talk Through, Brian and LT are joined by former co-host Ruthie to discuss The Walking Dead Season 10 Episode 17 titled Home Sweet Home. Home Sweet Home was written by Kevin Deiboldt & Corey Reed and directed by David Boyd.



    Maggie’s back! And Negan’s there…



    The looks exchanged between Maggie and Negan in the cold open was classic. Clearly, there is a confrontation in their future. Will she kill Negan? Will they make peace?



    Ghillie Suit!



    I didn’t know the term ghillie suit before this episode. Of course, I’ve seen ghillie suits before, but I’ve never heard the term. He takes care of Maggie’s redshirts. Why Pope marked Maggie (or their group), no one but the characters know at this point.

Will no longer listen to this podcast

I do not have cable, so I have been purchasing each season of TWD since season one on itunes and would watch the episodes on Mondays. After season 7, I decided to no longer purchase TWD, thus, essentially quitting the series. I enjoy podcasts so I still listen to a few about TWD. I liked this podcast, but on the last podcast, Brian gave all us "quitters" a big F-you. Ruthie has left this podcast, and Brian's "you know" are so frequent, excessive and distracting, (the big F-you didn't help) that I think it's time to quit this podcast too.

This is a great podcast

A very cool and slick podcast with awesome editing and sound drops. Love the input from all of the cohosts and hosted by Brian.
