the walking dead

The Falling Dead.

I would actually watch a show called "The Falling Dead".

Recently FanGirl Central did a rewatch of S1 of The Walking Dead. I had forgotten some things, but mainly how very short the season was. Seriously, you guys, it felt like at least a 14 episode run because so much happens in the first season. I know the first time through I liked Lori jut fine but this time it was hard to listen to anything she had to say without just wanting her to go away already. Also, watching the slow transition of ‘kind of kick-ass Andrea’ into ‘motherfucking kickass Andrea’ was very interesting to do. There was one thing though that The BFF said so nonchalantly, like it was so matter-of-fact as if everybody had figured this out already and yet it was something that I had never even thought of.

Now Falling Skies, because OMG. OMG, THIS WEEK’S EPISODE!! It was SO exciting! I think I need to be more coherent though and I have things to say about the season as a whole, so let’s start there.

The 2nd Mass is being much smarter this year than they were last year. It was my biggest complaint when watching last year, the need to go in and ‘fix-it’ all. You know how when you are watching a movie where someone is being chased by ‘men in black’ and you think, “Okay, drop your phones because they can be traced, change your appearance, don’t go in anywhere that has security cameras because they are probably tapped into all of those…” but the people on the TV never listen to you? Yeah, that was watching first season of Falling Skies.

Second season of Falling Skies has been far more exciting, far less frustrating and just far better on a whole. If you are one of the people who tuned in last season and decide to forgo it this season - you should see about checking it out.
