Fear the living

Friday evening, decided to have a little me time, been so tired lately, feeling a bit like Bilbo; “feel … thin. Sort of stretched, like … butter scraped over too much bread” So a sofa and TV felt like as the perfect idea.

This fall’s highly anticipated TV series is undoubtedly The Walking Dead, season 3, At least I’ve been waiting for it to finally start! Once the wait was over and the first episode was released I took a decision to try to hold out a couple, three weeks or so, just to have more than one episode to watch. But it is starting to be a bit too difficult, so this Friday’s entertainment is set 😀

Oh my goddess!
It’s all I can say. We who thought season 1 & 2 was great, it is nothing, nothing compare to the opening episodes of season 3. If you were thinking that maybe our few survivors would survive, at least a bit into this season, forget it! No one is safe! The writers/producers actually surprised me with some shocking deaths (and I’m not that easily surprised), I did not see that coming.

Scenes from the prison are incredibly strong and chocking, there is some interesting twist and turns and more than a few surprises along the way, this is by far the best part of the season. Unfortunately I think that this season’s weakness is the scenes from Woodbury, what a letdown, it simply does not work for me. I wish I could buy and believe, among other things, the growing attraction between the Governor and Andrea, but it just falls flat. Oh well, guess you can’t have it all. Fortunately, Michonne is a more interesting new character that we hopefully will see more of. I suppose I just have to wait until the prison encampment and the governor collide, that surely will be interesting.

But by far the most interesting development into this season so far is Ricks “fall from grace”, we got a hint of it in season 2 but now it would seem that he is losing more and more of his humanity (or sanity) and while our leader slips, Daryl is sort of stepping up. I really like the development of this redneck character and are looking forward to see what they have in store for him.

It will be difficult to wait for the next episodes, and considering the fact that we approaching the midseason and the inevitable Christmas break lurking around the corner (the horror, how will we ever survive!?) there will probably be some nasty surprises coming our way soon. So stay tuned.
