Watched the Season Premiere of “The Walking Dead”

This isn’t the first episode I ever watched – I actually binged up to season two once upon a time, but stopped after getting bored – but there was a lot of buzz surrounding it, so I decided to give this episode a shot. I knew the general details behind the plot, and the big cliffhanger hook, so nothing threw me for a loop.

All I’ll say is, I have no idea how anybody can possibly watch this show. This wasn’t gory; this was gratuitous and disgusting. This wasn’t dark; this was nihilism personified. If there’s a purer expression of nihilism out there, don’t show it to me. I don’t want to see it.

“The Walking Dead” is a cruel, disgusting show. I honestly do not understand how anybody can stand watching¬†it. If you’re curious about the twist as I was, Google it.¬†You’re better off not watching it. This was as close to anti-superversive as I’ve ever seen.

  • About half way through the third season I decided enough was enough and stopped watching it. The episodes felt like they were slapped together from whatever could be scraped from the bottom of the grim dark barrel.

      I mean, I don’t think it’s much of a spoiler to say that characters in this episode were so gruesomely murdered their eyes were popped out of their heads and what remained after the beating was over was literally a bloody, pulpy mess where their head used to be. And we, the viewers, get to watch it all in loving detail.

      Why? What is the point of that? It’s disgusting.
