Last week's episode was 45 minutes or so of pure build up to what we assumed was going to be an epic siege battle with dragons and Dothraki and...oh yeah, wrong show. But still, the amount of groundwork that was laid indicated that a) we'd get a barnstorming action-packed romp of an episode and b) we'd probably say goodbye to a few characters in the process.

Except it didn't really turn out that way. We did indeed lose a clutch...

Episode 11 was one of those episodes that inevitably foreshadows a lot of action, conflict – and quite often, death. In the last series of Game of Thrones, we had this before 'The Long Night' episode, where the white walkers attacked Winterfell. There's a lot of contemplation going on at times like these. It's the calm before the storm, where characters reflect on their situation, their lives and the potential of not surviving...

There was always a very good chance that we would leave the whole 'people trapped in a cave' situation and focus on some of the other characters this week – and so it came to pass.

The episode opened with Rosita having a nightmare that a whisperer had broken into her house and was standing over her baby's cot with a knife. Of course, some viewers will have been pondering whether there we were being given some foreshadowing of e...

So The Walking Dead returned after what felt like a reeeeaaally long break – although in reality it's probably only been about 2 and a half months or something. The mid-season finale saw a clutch of the gang fall down a cavern and reach the realisation that they're stuck in a subterranean cave system. Oh and the infamous but elusive horde are down there. Yay!

Thankfully we didn't get one of those episodes where they focused on...

Last night’s mid season finale saw the resolution of one story thread and the introduction of a couple of others. Mid-season finales used to be rather explosive affairs back in the day but the main action is usually reserved for the episode before the mid-season finale nowadays. The mid season finale itself is a chance to set up the stuff that is going to be the main focus of the show when it returns next year (February).

Siddiq's psychological breakdown has been an ongoing thread in the narrative of season 10 of The Walking Dead. Last week saw his mental state worsen to the point where he was posing a risk to his own daughter. This week, his nightmares got even worse and with tragic consequences...

The Siddiq storyline was the main focus of the episode so I'll get onto that in a bit but first of all let's take a look at everything else that hap...

Episode six was another where those looking for high tension and bloodshed will have been left a little disappointed. However, it's vital to have episodes like this, where we focus on some B stories as well as furthering the main plot, albeit in a less showy kind of way.

This week the story was split in four and I'll look at each in turn;

1) Eugene makes a connection
After professing his love for Rosita (and that he was only fri...

Last week felt a bit like the calm before the storm – the show allowing the audience to take a collective breath before things get ramped up a notch or two. We're not too far from the mid-season finale so tensions will rise and the action will increase. Episode four ended with the news that Negan had escaped (or been allowed to escape) and was on the run and it is his company we kept for a good portion of episode 5...

Negan's c...

Last night’s episode of the Walking Dead felt like an opportunity for the show to focus on some of the B-story threads that are simmering away in the background. Inc event weeks, conflict between the colonists and the Whisperers has taken centre stage, along with some backstory to Alpha and Beta. The two groups seem on the verge of all out war again and it’s really just a matter of when not if a full scale conflict rages again...

October 21, 2019

After last week's exploration of the relationship between Alpha and Beta, we switched our attention back to the good guys. The opening montage shows us that they're having to deal with wave after wave of walker attacks. They assume that it's the work of The Whisperer's (although Lydia disagrees). The colonists fight what seems like a neverending battle – but it's not a battle they can realistically keep fighting. The battle ra...
