The Best Laid Plans

This post was all planned out and (nearly) ready to go, when everything blew up. And, when I say, “nearly ready to go,” I mean, of course, that I had a plan as to what I was going to write about—mostly because last night was the Season Two finale of AMC’s The Walking Dead.

But then all kinds of stuff happened in the office, and a slow Monday morning turned into something else entirely.

Things have calmed down for the moment, though, so I’m gonna try talking about last night’s Walking Dead before I get pulled into something else.

The episode featured what was probably the most intense zombie attack sequence, certainly in the show’s history, but also in quite a while when it comes to horror movies. The action was non-stop, and the show ramped up the pressure on its main characters.

The promos leading up to the show hammered home the point that there were only 13 survivors remaining, and MINOR SPOILER ALERT, not all of those 13 made their way out.

And, for once in a horror story, the deaths weren't completely gratuitous, and instead made quite a bit of sense.

I plan to write about the episode at length later this week, in a spoiler-rific post, so stay tuned!
